Okay the second board came today.  I dropped an i5 7500t in it and a 16g sodimm ddr4 stick of cruical ram

this board cost me more . about 200 for the sample.

the good :

 on off button
no cpu 8 or 4 pin
no 24 pin

8x 6 pin pcie in 

the photo i  have is wrong  so  I have to try to take a photo.

give me a bit of time.

this new board is 100 % server friendly
I need to figure what he sent to me as it does not match to photo above.

it is better not worse.



Do I understand correctly that the only power this motherboard needs is provided by the PCIE ports?  That would be pretty darned sweet indeed.

RX470 rigs are still difficult to upgrade, tbh, as it's impossible to get as much bang for the buck currently... And they're still chugging along nicely. I've been contemplating a Vega56 rig for a while but I just can't seem to make the step. Mostly for logistical reasons... But time to breakeven is definitely a big factor.

 Vega at this point only seems to be good with Monero - and only then on Win 10 as the bloody blockchain driver needed to get good Monero hashrate DOESN'T WORK on Win7.
 (Perhaps LINUX, as I think AMD finally got around to updating the LINUX driver).

 Thank goodness I didn't get my Vega 56 card with the intent of mining on it.




yeah... XMR is what I ran my 470 to Vega-56 ROI scenario on as it appears Vega can get close to 3x the hashrate of my 470's on Cryptonite algo.

Assuming I could get $200 each for my 470's and replaced them with 4 Vega56's, I figure my ROI at only about 60 days.  That is also assuming a total at wall wattage of 1KW for the 4x Vega's.  Anyone here know if that is close? 

I'm assuming that I cannot go any higher than 4 Vega's mainly due to lack of extra 8-pin PCIe power connectors. My 1200W PSU only has 4 x2 so if both power ports need to be filled on Vega's I think this would be limited to 4 of them. But, if those 4 will take anywhere close to 1000w then I wouldn't have enough headroom to add a 5th Vega anyway.

This isn't quite a no-brainer yet but if XMR were to have a few more good days and hold, it's probably a worthwhile endeavor... at least on 1 of my 4 rigs to start.



Eh, 3x 470's?  Not really, but at least 2.2 - 2.4 and slightly less power draw when set up right.  You do need both power ports filled on the top of the Vega, but you can get Y splitter cables that plug into a 6-pin and then branch out to (2) 8 pin connectors.  Three Vegas will mine 5,600/5,700 and draw under 600 watts from the wall, so a fourth should not take that over 1K. I personally would not add a 5th to a single 1,200w PSU though.

Been testing the limits of the m12 onda b250 .

It will do eight cards 1 short  7 full size .

Eight 1070s ran well
Seven 1070s and one 1080 ti

Will not run two 1080tis with six 1070s

At the moment I run it with the short slot empty .

Two 1080tis
Five 1070s

Does about 3655 sols. This may be the max.  Close to 1000 watts.

I have a throttle issue with it. When I go to 2 1080tis and 6 1070s

I believe it is deliberate the mobo protects itself from melting the three molex and three sata.

Still it is a good board.

Just has a power limit close to 1000 watts.

I will be testing the other boards throghout the next week.

I don’t think any of these boards are meant to do 8 1080tis

But 8 1070s yes.

I myself may consider an 8 GPU 1070Ti rig pretty shortly depending on how many weeks i'm up here working right now.   I'm across the state being a hired hourly person for several weeks.....   Just the thing I needed at this time of the year to get that extra bit of cash to go over the top once again....  I'm self employed, so that entails a lot of caveats...

My whole deal is I want to be able to fit the 8x 1070Ti rig in a 4U slot in my shipping case;  This will be perfect to fit in there with my rosewell, the internet/network server, and storage array (I got 2x SCSI Raid arrays populated with drives with both cases;  as they were originally each portable 16 channel TV live playback/recording/rebroadcasting stations... so im going to play with this fast storage media for a while)  Soon to be used to test the viability of a gas generator to fuel the operation so to speak.

I shared this in yun9999's thread - sharing it here.

I use a lot of Deltas, so far no problems.

I hang them (with s-hooks) with exhaust pointing upwards.

This way I can push hot exhaust air upwards.

Very effective.

Those cases I pictured are being retrofitted for outdoor use.   I will have one major exhausting fan on the rear case door, and a filtered input on the other door of each.  Ill work out attachments for managing heat away from the boxes if/when they end up indoors.

I need to be able to fit this format in my satellite systems for portability....  Cause I will have some odd space restrictions from where I'll be renting to expand the gorilla farm; but when rent is going to be less than $300/mo, which each rented space includes a 30-50A 220V power hookup....

I need not say more..... or rather shouldn't.... lol!

Hey guys, I would like to replace my bedroom electric heater with a mining rig almost 100% silent, but able to provide heat of course!

With nowadays available parts, what would you build from scratch ?

How much heat wattage you need? 100% silent would be difficult, think about watercooling, and a very big radiator. Maybe from a car? Wink

waterblock is really quiet.

how much power?

2 of these
