Hey guys!

Pretty new to mining, but I felt confident enough to expand my first 6 gpu setup (sitting on top of the rack) to a 24 gpu setup and wanted to share my work in progress:

I decided to mine eth/zec with 24 gtx 1070 on 4 z170a mobos due to the fact that all the rx cards are either sold out or ridiculously over priced. I can share more information for those interested.

Some things I learned:

1) the heat generated from a 6 gpu rig is manageable inside a bedroom
2) the heat generated from a 24 gpu rig is not manageable inside a bedroom  Grin Cheesy
3) can not pull more than 15A from the wall socket

My next steps include:
1) move the unit to the garage to create a better intake/exhaust system; or
2) move the unit into a small outdoor shed
3) electrical work

Any advice with the electrical work (or anything else)? I know each rig (holding 6 gpus) pulls around 7-7.5A and 700-850W, so I figured it be smarter to have a dedicated breaker for this project.

Also, how do you guys remotely monitor/manage your rigs? I wanted to use simplemining.net but it looks like it's not available for gtx cards.

Thanks!!

nice neat look

advice do not use the ac it is costly

blowing air out a window is key

can you put 2 of these in your garage? 

use them for exhaust.

next  msi afterburner is your friend.

so do you use it and set tdp to 70%

zec settings

tdp 70%
core 100+
mem -100
fan 75% manual

the above are pretty good for 1070's

you can drop to 60% even 50%  hash rate will drop but  it will help with temps.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
