This is a new rig with 7 cards soon to be 9.
Running SMOS on a USB.
I have the cards set so the highest one is around 60 to 65c.
100/500 fans at 80%
These are MSI cards
They seem quiet. 50db at 3 feet
They feel warm. Around 115 degrees to the touch.
They run in my unheated 2 car garage and if I don't open the door daily
the temps push 90 degrees.
I've ordered an exhaust fan that I'll be installing soon so I can hopefully
push the power level a bit. Although 4Sol/w seems like a good tradeoff.

At my testing experience: 1080ti, 1070, 1060 and RX 480/580 are best gpus to mine ZCASH. I think the best one is 1080ti.

The best was palit gtx1070 with samsung memory doing 490sol@125wat- but it is impossible to find now and the price diff between gtx1070 and gtx1080 is very small.
Now I think it is gtx1080FE with 510sol@120watt after prices drop for this models.
It is all after fine-tuning  

gtx1080ti is also good but expensive

 There's a REASON I spent most of a month last summer moving from Iowa to "The Land Of Very Very Cheap Electric" in Central Washington.

 And yes, the Aorus are bloody huge 3-slot cards - been a while since folks MADE cards that huge (I have a HIS IceQ blower model HD 7870 that is ALSO 3-slot, but only the BLOWER area is that wide).

 They're no worse than some of the other cards out there - at least one Zotac model and at least one MSI model are JUST as huge.

 They have awesome cooling though for air-cooled.



That's a great rate. Is that residential or commercial rate?

I need to know what GPU that has less TDP but more outcome power
Is 1080ti worth the money to mine ZCASH?

Really cus my G1 does 500+ easy. Im pretty sure if you get your hands on a good 1070 it could come close to a 1080 maybe within 5%.
Mind you electricity for me is free though but I dont want to invest a lot (wont be buying the Vega cards anytime soon).
I'd stick with 1080Ti or 1070 and forget about the 1080.

 Small business commercial rate, but the residential rate here is almost identical.

 I'm going to end up finding out soon what all of my cards are capable of - Vorshalk's recent decision to deploy a BLOODY HUGE FARM (he's one of the CureCoin developers) have ticked me off enough AND have dropped my income to the point I am no longer willing to suffer through the issues with those 2 coins any more - OR try to compete with a BOTTOMLESS WALLET DEV screwing over the rest of us that have been participating in those coins for a long time.

 I don't mind competing with others for my coin - but having a DEVELOPER go out of his way to kill profitabilty by well over 10% *SO FAR AND STILL GETTING WORSE* is just not acceptable.

Sorry to hear that man that's really frustrating. What was his reasoning, why wouldn't he mine a diff coin and auto sell into buying his coin... I see that as a win/win for his coin

I'd stick with 1080Ti or 1070 and forget about the 1080.

 I have never seen a 1070 that managed more than about 460 - SPECIFICALLY INCLUDING my Gigabyte G1 cards.

 You apparently have one that handles a lot higher overclocks better than most do, or you're looking at the "momentary peaks" and counting those as the hashrate where I tend to look at the AVERAGE hashrate instead, or you're in a VERY COLD ambient temp with your cards - or a combination of all 3.
 

 Even with minimal tuning and having "fairly high ambient temp cooling" limitations, most of my 1080 cards easily hit 530 and I suspect when I take the time to fine-tune them they will be able to push closer to 550 - and NONE of those are "high end" 1080 models, most are the Zotac Mini or the bottom-end Gigabyte 2-fan models which are definitely heat limited in my environment.


 On the other hand, with 1070 pricing getting back down into the pre-gouge range, the 1070 is starting to look like a better option even at the system level to the 1080 in many respects - and the recent climb in 1080ti pricing isn't helping any.

Completely agree on the 1070s being the best bang for buck currently
https://goo.gl/7s7Kb6
I've ordered a couple of these well . . because I like the white xD but the zotac mini and now a couple other cards have come down as well to the 400 price which is pretty nice to see.

1080 TI are still stupid priced and it's really deterring my interest in them, looking forward to when they come back down to reality // the 1060s are a good price now as well

the profitability for mining zcash has gone waaay down. it is more than 1 year for a ROI if you buy a graphic card now and put it to mine. crazy times for zcash.

it's sort of relative from a "daily $ earnings" prospective but with my farm I was getting 1 zec every 33 hours in july/august then ~40 hours then quickly 50+
I hope to see a couple new good coins arise to  be able to spread out all of the miners, for example if bitcoin gold , zencash and say hush or kmd blew up to be 50 100 150 dollar coins that would spread out a ton of hashrate + particularly useful the for nvidia miners

Hey value itself turns to 198 USD now. Using miner gate application and best specification graphics card in the the series Radeon or Nvidia. Zcash and Monero are the best altcoins now to mine using GPU. So I don't know how you are saying the zcash mining with the cards bro.
You only looks crazy to say it is not possible to mine using cards.

i believe he means you get a fair amount less of actual zcash mined today vs even a month ago

What are your preferred settings for getting max performance out of your cards? You probably tune them down a bit like me due to heat issues?

Also does anyone know what the ideal ambient temp is for operating GPUs?

 Depends on the rig and the card - most of them I have to turn the TDP down a little to keep them in the 70-75C range when it's cool (like this past week) and under 80 when it's hot (this summer) without going past 85% fan.
 Some I've got down as low as 70% or so, but those are mostly in rigs I've upgraded to "4 card part-riser" and need to keep power consumption down to my target 6 amp max draw for infrastructure limit reasons.

 The Aorus 1080 ti models though are beasts - can run them at full TDP with 70-80% fan even when it's HOT and they stay plenty cool, as long as there is plenty of airspace in front of the fans.


 Profitability has been sliding up a bit this week - seems like something is pulling a fairly large amount of network hashrate out of ZCash this week, more than making up for the minor price drop.
 Not a HUGE jump, but noticeable....



 The ideal AMBIENT temp for operating GPUs is probably around freezing, but I'm not real interested in moving to northern Greenland or Siberia or that recent split-off northern Canadian province to achieve that year-round....

I have been taking note of credibility of smaller alt coins.  Maybe others are too and that's why the hash rate is being redistributed.
