 Okay simple :

 I have  290 in ebay ebucks
 I have   250 in Amazon gift cards
 I have  100 in best buy credits.

I have an empty mobo  a z170  

with :

 intel i7 6700t
 windows 7  ultimate
 a 1tb ssd
 an evga 750 p2

two slots no risers
two risers

this rig worked well mining with 4 cards -----Windows 7
this rig worked well mining with 4 cards ----- smOS

So I can  get 3 nvidia cards  using my monies for ebay, amazon, best buy.

I do not want  anything but 1080 8gb or 1080 ti 11gb  I will mine zec

Please let me know if you have  a 1080 8gb  what  is the zec hash rate and power use.
Please let me know if you have  a 1080 ti 11 gb   what is the zec hash rate and power use.

Price does not matter  the 1080 ti 11gb costs more  but does it hash a lot higher then the 1080?

I only will have a 3 card rig  so highest hash  is most important  but of course if 1080 ti  is marginal  maybe 1080 is better.



I am not allowed to do a give away thread the rules state this in alt coins.

So I won't give a prize away for the best ideas.

Would you sell me something if I have a good idea Wink

Not a good idea at all.

Sleazy in fact.

I am looking for  people that are running nvidia for zec to chime in.

I want a top of the line card  which is the 1080 ti or the 1080

this is the Msi gtx 1080 8gb  new

A bit of data here to get you started - http://cryptomining-blog.com/tag/gtx-1080-ti-zec-efficiency/

So the 1080 ti gives around 560 to 580

On efficiency settings.

Since I want a one or two card  or three card rig this is helpful.

Thanks

It's a baseline and just a starting piece of data that you might of found interesting.

Here's a video of an overclocked MSI 1080ti pulling ~760

a 1070 is better than a 1080 on cost/watt/hash ratio, why you choose the 1080? for density?

the rig will be 2 or 3 cards when done so density is important.

if i can suggest you one brand, buy palit super jet stream, they are the best one, fabulous cooling and very silent, also hash faster than other with same setting(core clock go higher), thanks to an additional 10watt

unfortunately they cost a little more than the average

I know you're looking for more specific information as far as specific brand an oc settings of each 1080 or 1080ti card but Nichhash has a nice little calculator with generic cards and numbers.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137113

if that 1080ti is already here in my country i would buy it....the 1080ti founders here is more expensive than that MSI 1080 ti (all 1080ti's here are still founders edition.)

I'm going for Zotac 1080 amp extreme. my judgement is based from that card having better (huge) cooler and higher clocks.

also gonna try for ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1080-A8G-GAMING..(it is on its way thru shipping, just bought one)

manufacturers have different 1080s and they have different clocks.

after building a 1080 rig, if i'm satisfied with nvidia I'll build another rig for 1080 ti..

i think if you can go for 1080ti instead of 1080 rig..they are both GDDRX5 and the margin of performance between 1080 and 1080ti justifies the price(huge enough)....unlike the 390 and 390x price back then.

2 of these cards  should get me 1200 hash  on moderate settings

4 rx 480's  8gb  do 1200 hash  which is  4 slots vs 2

price is about 1500 nvidia  vs 1000 amd


power is about 400 nvidia vs   600 amd  not sure about this figure

1080 ti founders can hit 700 plus hash(i think i read it in 1080 vs 1080ti thread), these 1080 ti have higher clocks so at moderate settings, maybe it stays at 700 hash at least..that would be 1400 hash for 2..power and space wise, i think it is a win win

found a 1080 ti here...gigabyte aorus 1080 ti extreme edition which is about $120 more expensive than the 1080 ti's you mentioned...I might try one.

I purchased this one today


https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=ZT-G1080TF


cost me 720  and I get a very small discount of 14 so 706 net.

If I down clock  a one card rig at the wall should be 200 watts or less  doing 600 hash.

I have 16 rx 480's  doing about 4500 hash and about 2250 watts

and 2 rx 480's in 1 rig at the solar array

so   3 h to 1 watt =  nvidia
and 2 h to 1 watt = amd

I won't go all nvidia  but I think adding two two card rigs is a no brainer


You need to understand  I have 7 mobos running

I have 2 idle mobos fully ready.

Most people are not going  to build a two card rig from scratch.  I am building not building 2 card rigs

I had 11 four card rigs  I sold off all my rx 470's  leaving me with 18 rx 480 8gb cards using 8 rigs  and 3 empty mobos  ready for cards.

Actually I also think that it's about time to run Nvidia gpu in the daily usage rig, I have a farm with 41 RX gpu and another one with 17 GPU.
My daily rig at home running Dual RX480 all GPUs already ROI'd so it is not bad to test the other camp, not sure if I should do dual 1070 or single 1080.
