Have fun spending $50,000-$70,000 dollars just on the GPUs (and that's with mass discounts)... Not to mention power supplies, motherboards, electricity consumption, fortified fuses, processors, professional cooling, rent and guarding fees for massive racks
I have. 390 square meters secured, contract signed monday. Place for 7 clusters od 12 racks of 16 computers each - more than I can cool and handle power wise with the current 1.5 megawatt power station right behind the hall
Fenced and secured as it is part of a factory complex
Electrician comes monday
First 3 cards online in a test setup. 100 pci-e express raisers orderd and stuck in customs, another 100 with molex power splice and 100 dual power start cables pending final proposal from manufacturer (monday).
5 cards coming tuesday (and 3 go online then), together with the next 12 power supplies (2 Iahve) for the first 8 computers. Small stuf ready for toal of 3 computer, another 5 ordered tuesday.
33 cards coming august 2nd
Planning to have 3 half-racks online end of August - a total of 14 graphics cards
Should be around 60 giga
Cooling via blowing hot air out of the roof (which we open and install undistrial fans in - sucking up 18.000 cubic meters air per hour each)
Should I say that as long as this is profitable post depreciation we will add one half-rack per month
This is btw at around a third the current income
You'll make much more eventually as the pool owner when it gets going, if you stagnate at 1-5ghash you'll never grow and will likely die from just a few consequent unlucky blocks
Not sure thee is any serious money in that
But the 1-5 Gigahash comment is correct. I wont ever understand why people go into pools that simply wont solve a block in a difficulty except being really lucky.
