So, I'm not new to the cryptocurrencies, but I am new to doing actual mining.  (I decided my basement needed a heater, so why not one that mines).

I've been reading up on all the GPU drama.  I wasn't "plugged-in" to the mining world before GPU prices skyrocketed so I'm not sure how my numbers look.
Why do I ask?  Well everyone is all like "you can't build a cost effective rig these days because of GPU prices," which makes sense, but the numbers I get from the hobby rig I just built seem in-line with reported cost/hash rates for rigs built before the GPU shortages... so just curious.


Hash rate (eth)(7/11/17): 118-119.6 Mh/s @ 830 watts
Capex Cost: $1710  ($14.49 Mh/s)
Opex Cost: 7 watts per Mh/s

(Not counting the $20 wire shelf and zip ties).

Your power consumption seems a bit high to me. My rig is doing 133-134 MH/s @ 760 watts (at the wall)... and one of my GPUs is an old GTX 970 doing only 17.1 MH/s @ ~130 watts. My CPU is also not low power (i7-3820) and is maxed out mining Monero (at about 220 H/s).

You didn't list your equipment, but I feel like you should be able to lower that power consumption... or be able to get more hashrate out of it. Really depends on what you're running though.
