I was chatting last night with someone who GPU mines for Zcash with a 6xGPU setup for extra money, i mentioned to him that recently went watercooled on my gaming rig which is a Ryzen 1700 w/ 2 x GTX1080ti's and he was telling me that i could just mine with my current PC setup when its not in use and make nearly as much as he makes with his 6 x AMD 470's, but im not really understanding the numbers on the site he pointed me to... Is this off or could i really be making this much times 2 for letting my PC mine when im not using it to stream or render video... Huh


Is this saying Lyra2REv2 is the mining route i would make the most profit?

You'll want to ask this question in the altcoin mining section.

That being said, it probably wouldn't hurt to do some ETH mining and convert to BTC with your setup if heat isn't an issue.  Just make sure your fan profile is set aggressively and underclocking is your friend as mining is intense and most hardware needs default adjustments to keep from turning into a paperweight over time.

Could you explain more on why you state ETH mining over all the others? im trying to learn more about the details on why people choose specific coins to mine, from my briefing understandings, some miners are more efficient on GPUs over others.. and even different on AMD vs Nvidia...

As OgNasty mentioned, you should post these questions in the alt-coin forums. This is the BitCoin mining forum.
Good luck.

I asked mods to move to alt coins.

your card would make close to 8 usd a day mining skein on pool

it would make close to 6 usd a day mining zec on nicehash
here is a link for you to read and ask questions


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1877588.0


note since you may mine ½ a day the numbers above would be ½ the size.

still 4 dollars a day is 120 per month.

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.
