Most of nvidia zec miners said 1070 is the best $/hash , in some cases it's the 1060 , i think if eth will turn pos then most of miners will start building nvidia rigs to open more options

Maybe with good settings.

if it is a dedicated mining rig 150 watt is okay more like 125.

Say a 50 watt cpu
a ssd or a hdd
a few fans
a stick of ram

I don't have these issues much as I don't use  6 card rigs

I prefer 4 card or 3 card setups.  with overhead for the psu's

One thing that is appealing about a 6 x 1080 Ti rig is that once your ROI is over you can bring in some really sweet profit every year after that. They will also be worth mining with for a good number of years since they're the current top end GPU. The resale value will be excellent also. It's a steep price to pay up front, but I think it's worth it in the long haul. Currently you can bring in over $11,000.00 a year after power costs with a single rig. That's an appealing prospect.

If you're willing to lose a modest amount of production and run them at lower power use and you'll easily fit 6, even 6 1080 Ti. As an example, for ZEC and 1080 Ti, when set to a power limit of 160W I get ~80% of the production as compared to when it's set to 300W.

If you do have the money to spent on 1080 ti then It would be the most suited GPU for mining zcash not only on this one but most of Coins that is possible to mine with GPU but considering on the amount or price of that gpu isn't really cheap at all.For now I have Rx 470 but I do have still some doubts on mining zcash I don't know where to set-it up.

I almost exclusively use AMD Fury and AMD Pro Duo.  The Pro Duo will do 1000 sols and I can get them to do 920 sols at about 300 watts.  I have used very few Nvidia cards because of the limited coins that could be mined in the past and typically inferior speeds.

I did order the following items to test out.  They arrive tomorrow so I am looking forward to modding them.

5 - Zotac Mini 1070
5 - Zotac 1070
5 - ZOTAC 1080 Ti AMP
2 - Titan Xp

Edited to add:
The Titan Xp's arrive Monday I think

Guys i just do not understand, why people are saying, that 1080 TI ist good for mining. Correct me if I  am wrong, but:

1080 TI costs about 800 EUR.
You get a used GTX 1070 from 360 to 400 EUR


1080 TI does 600 sols
we need also 1,5 x 1070 to have 600 sols, because 1 gtx 1070 produces about 400 sols

With this performance, the undeclocked 1080 ti consumes 160 Watt
for the same performance 1,5 1070 about 140 + 70 = 210 Watt

so the difference is 50 Watt an hour, that makes 1200 Watt a day, which is depending on the electricity costs (let's take 0,12 EUR for our example) about 14 cents a day,
which makes in month 5 EUR.

So the for the same performance the price difference is 800 - (400 +200) = 200 EUR
that is about 40 month... just to pay for the price difference...  !?!?

not to  disturb you guys , but at the moment , for equihash , BEST SINGLE CARD  (1 pci express ) is not nvidia... but is ATI.... Radeon pro duo. cost around 700 EUR + vat ... brings in from 900 to 1100 sols at around 280 -  380 w according to how u configure)

since op does wrote he does not care about electricity...\

Of course greens are more efficient , but this is at the moment the fastest.

No the best GPU for ZCASH is the Radeon 7950/ 7970/ 280x which you can buy second hand for like $50-$75.

Each will get you 300 H/s. So impossible to lose money on those.

Keep in mind they use 200 Watts however.

Hi thespycry,
 Here are some numbers to go through.

The price of 1080Ti founders edition is $699.99 & 1070 is $400

1080Ti out of the box does about 690h/s for the power draw of 250w
1070 out of the box does about 400h/s(I don't have one so used your number)

To get 690h/s you need 1.72 1070 GPUs

Now for power

1080 Ti                    = 250 * 24 = 6000w = 6kw
1070                        = 140 * 24 = 3360w = 3.36kw
1070 Adj for 690h/s =  240.8 * 24 = 5779.2 = 5.77kw

ZEC Production

1080 Ti    = 0.0571/day Approx(whattomine data)
1070       = 0.0348/day Approx(whattomine data)
1070 ADj = 0.0571/day Approx(whattomine data)

So in a day with ZEC @ $107/coin it is possible to make

1080 Ti = 6.1097- 0.84(power)      = 5.2697
1070    = 3.7236 - 0.4032(power) = 3.3204
1070 Adj = 6.1097 - 0.6924(power) = 5.4173

To get 1080Ti's level of earning(20 cent more) you will be spending $688 instead of $699.99 for 1080Ti a difference of $11.99

Now this is based on the assumption that 1070 will do 400h/s for 140w if not then I don't think 1070 is that efficient.

Hope this helps, If I made any mistake please let me know.

Can I mine zcash with my laptop?

 Yes you can, but I would strongly recommend you against it, because laptops have very power heat dispensing and mining in general will produce extreme heat and so will melt your laptop. And on top of that even laptops with dedicated GPU's produce very less revenue. So please take this into consideration before you begin.

Real Life Example of what happened

how 300 hashes are faster than 1100 ? we are not speaking about BEST COST RATIO but op asked whast is FASTEST CARD not more efficient or faster roi...

the 1080 and 180ti are good also, the ti is too expensive bad roi time, but the 1080 is very good now with the new price, still i think the 1070 is the best from a value/watt/hash ratio, the 1060 3gb is not that good you need many rig and it's worse in efficiency than a 1070

Thanks everyone for posting great info here, I'm interested in all of this but specifically my question is that I have one spot open on a 6 card rig (currently only 5 cards on it) and I want to use the most powerful zcash hashing card on it even if ROI is a little longer. However if it's obviously not worth it then I want the card that's the best choice.

I pay 14c kwh

I am on my iPad so links are a pain to post .

But my thread has info on the Galax katana 1070 thin slim single slot .

Just read the last few post on the thread.
