Can someone help me with links to a good video on how to build mining rigs from scratch?

I would recommend waiting on building a rig until the next 30 days go by. With the BTC chain split coming up and pretty much most coin prices seriously depressed, coupled with the ATH hashrates and difficulties of GPU mine-able coins, getting in right now will be a losing proposition. The other factor is high hardware prices right now. So you will end up paying 1.5 to 2 times the normal cost for a rig, while at the same time entering the market when projected mining profitability is sinking faster than the Titanic did in the North Atlantic.

If you are just doing research for when the time is right again, just google pretty much "building mining rig" and you will get a lot of hits. The big things to watch for are a motherboard that can support multiple GPUs, a PSU sufficiently large enough to handle the load of you GPUs probably around 1000 watts for 4-5 GPUs (hint stick with a one PSU rig for your first build), and GPUs that can efficiently mine the coin you are looking at. Nvidia's are slightly better at mining Equihash algorithms (Zcash) than they are Ethash (Ethereum), but the Nvidia are still pretty efficient as terms of power usage with both algorithms. I think the 30-60 days ROI's days are over even if the market recovers somewhat, so you might be better at looking at efficiency number rather than max hashrates.

Zain has good advice for you.

I take it one step further build a 3 or 4 card rig.

If you are USA based look into rosewill quark 850 watt platinum  psu on eBay or new-egg

It is a rock solid psu that will do up to four 1080 ti gpu's

I have a few detailed threads on smaller two three four card builds.

Riser free.

Linux free os on a 15 dollar USB stick.

Please support sidehack with his new miner project Send to : 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr
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.
