Now using even cheaper components, brought the price down to $1200 + shipping.

Seems more reasonable now.
Since the system has a proper case, windows intalled and already set
up for mining, it's an OK deal now i guess.

And one should not forget, that there is your worktime invested in it, and that has to be paid too.

Donatioins always welcome Wink

Yeah, I think the lower price point makes these devices a bit more economical, especially for first-time miners. Smiley

You will have one hell of a time keeping them cool in a normal case, especially in summer.

I would offer them for sale with a tech bench: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=103_467&products_id=33104

Or with a HAF922: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119197
and replacing all the 120mm fans and the side 200mm fan with high static pressure R4s: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103061 (search online, you can find them for ~$5 each)
I know from experience that you can fit 6x 120mm fans in a HAF922 and that is cools really well (1x bottom, 2x side, 1x rear, 2x top).  For the fans on the top/bottom you should get fluid bearing or ball bearing fans too, as cheap sleeve bearing fans like R4s tend to fail quickly when placed on their sides: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233035

Yes, it's like $30-50 worth of fans, but it will ensure decent airflow over the GPUs so that you don't have customers calling you and complaining in the summer that their rig is dead because of heat.  My personal experience is that MSI cards have the best aftermarket cooling too, so I wouldn't buy anything but those.  They are still available if you search a lot for them.

Edit: I would also recommend the following PSU instead of the bronze one you chose http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182084
The reason being that this PSU will have >90% efficiency at the est. 450-550w or so you'll be pulling from the PC and also the 7 year warranty and also the price.

Your 7950 fans are going to end up running full throttle all the time with this kind of case and there's no way they're not going to die early.  I run two gigabyte winforce 3's and even with three fans on the 7950's I have two further 120mm fans blasting away on the side panel, one 120mm fan on the back panel and 4 x 120mm fans mounted to my radiator up top to keep temps down AND even then I have to actively air condition the room the rig is in to prevent overheating.

Based on my experience with these rigs, removing screws and a panel like so (takes < 1 minute to do):
allows for excellent ventilation. Do you still think they would have trouble staying cool with this panel removed? If so, I might look into a tech bench, but the side panel seems like the main ventilation issue to me.

That is a nice PSU, certainly more efficient.

ITT: autism

I wouldn't buy a machine that only supported 2 slots and could not be upgraded by adding more stuff.

Vorsholk has done a pretty awesome job. The penny pinchers will kick themselves when they have to buy another machine to add components.

Right, the device is geared towards people who want to set down a unit, unscrew two screws, and have something work, people who want to be upgrading and expanding systems would not be interested in this product.

Edit: re-read what you had written, I think I may have misinterpreted it. With the old setup people would still have some ventilation issues with the higher quality hardware. Sad I'm looking into the hardware to make 3x7950s work fine in a regular case, but it's not too promising. :\

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131872 - $90
GPU: 2X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202026 - $620
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104339 - $63
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103888 - $39
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151108 - $121
Plastic milk box: $10
2x Risers off ebay: $7
Any old HDD you can find, can get one for $10-15 on ebay

Total: $960-965


I doubt anyone is retarded to make a dedicated 2x 7950 miner in an actual pc case. It is not worth it.



This sounds more like a resonably price.
I built 2 rigs with 2x7950 each last month for a total of less than 1400 € and they are hashing with over 2.2MH/s
And why this gigantic PSU? Just use a 630W for 45€ and 4 gig RAM. And there are ASRock mainboards with
2 PCIe 16x slots for less than 60€. I really don't get the pricing here

All this sounds like a rip off to me. Sorry

Curious.... was that supposed to say 1.2MH/s? If you are getting 2.2MH/s, could you let me know your over clocking stats and miner configuration? I'm building my rig with two 7950's tonight, but I didn't think I was going to do more than 1.3 or 1.4 at best and probably more like 1.2 average.

I think he built two rigs, each with 2x7950, for $1850 or so Smiley

I could do builds with this kind of hardware (aside from a milk box), if people would prefer. Really low-end core parts do significantly decrease versatility of the machine, but for a miner I suppose that's not a problem. I'll look into it.

$7 a day and cost $1200 and only 1mh/s?? for what?? wasting time and money. when you get to 200 to 300mh/s let us know

200 to 300mh/s would probably be another decade at least, and moore's law is gonna hit a dead end real soon.

However, you might be thinking of Bitcoin MH/s. This unit is comparable to >1GH/s with bitcoin mining.

bitcoin mining can goes up to a few hundred gh, and averaging on 70gh/s which will be 70mh/s if in litecoin equivalent...

So why would I want to buy this when I can just go out on the market and get me a system 10x faster for far less 1x 7950 costs around $180 so that's 360 or their about

then ram everything else...... what makes this any different from someone walking out to a shop and just buying them Huh?

I give you credit for coming up with a services like this but i wish you best of luck in selling Smiley

I wish I would known where to get $180 7950s before I paid $300 for mine!!

Woulda bought 2X...LMFAO!

(I'm pretty sure you are talking about 7850s...not the same thing)
