I have been on this forum for around a month or two.  I finally feel pretty comfortable with all the knowledge I gained.  But it required alot of painful reading and asking questions no one wanted to answer.

I have put together a guide on building multi GPU's with most of the information you need.  It is aim at people almost totally new to the game.  Here is a link to the guide.

https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@evilmonkey/4-mining-guide-how-to-build-multi-gpu-open-air-rigs-riser-cards-tips-psu-selection-etherium-zcash-zec

It contains links and information on everything you need really.  My previous guides #1 #2 #3 were all about getting started in mining then moving to mining individual coins with command lines and the third one is all about configuring windows.  I provide batch files etc that automatically turn off windowsupdates and all thsoe settings that interfair with mining.

Would appreciate any feedback on the forth guide incase I put any info that is not quite correct.

I would have killed for this info when I was starting out.  IT would have saved me about a months worth of reading I hope it helps other out.  I will post it in the main forum too.

One thing I have learnt.

After doing your research, come to a realistic expectation of hash your rig can do. Once you reach that or above, STOP TINKERING. I've lost more than a few days mining just playing with my rig trying to squeeze an extra 1 or 2 mh out of my cards.

Get your rig up, get it stable and have a spare PC that you can plug a card into to flash bios\tweak power settings. Once you're happy then power down your rig, install card and apply settings. Rinse and repeat.

Also not all cards are created equal, not all of my RX570 will do the same speed. I have differences between same model cards of 1 - 2mh/s using same bios and power settings.

Yeh I did a similar thing. But it was fun tweaking it and I learned alot.  Now I just set it at 75% modest clocks and leave it.
