Well thanks for stating the obvious and also repeating what has been previously said. I'm comfortable with the current level of x11 mining I do and have experience with hardware. I don't need amateur jim kramers to tell me where to put my time and money, I would just like real technical input from someone who knows what they are talking about to help me tinker.

There do exist USB Scrypt Asic miners if that's what you're looking for.













None that will result in profit obviously.

no one is talking about scrypt or ASIC's. I already have a pci-e enclosure with GPU's and am once again tinkering

Not talking to you, talking to the OP:

Any chance of mining on a usb graphics card?
Something like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-USB-3-0-to-VGA-Video-Graphic-Card-Multi-Display-Cable-Adapter-/310723313040?pt=UK_Computing_Sound_Vision_Video_Cables_Adapters&hash=item48588d7d90
Any other way that I can mine scrypt via usb?

I have only a laptop so true graphics card mining (i.e. a pci-e graphics card) is not an option at the moment. I know USB ASIC miners exist, but only for SHA-256, and most SHA-256 coins are difficult to make a profit from due to all the ASIC miners out there.
Any usb miners for Scrypt?
Thanks

Easier to just stick with regular GPU's for mining non scrypt and non SHA256 coins

for example something like this http://www.mfactors.com/pe4h-ec060a-v3-2-pcie-x16-adapter/

thats expensive for my taste but I have something similar. My concern is that whether its a riser, adapter, or enclosure, they all are either pcie,mpcie, or expresscard, which makes it difficult to interface with a barebones linux system or in my case a single board CPU.

if I can get either expresscard or pcie working in SGminer then it would be possible to make something halfway between a powered riser & this enclosure adapter for GPU mining.......in my case x11 mining.

I forget where I saw them, but I know there are things like these out there that have a GPU connector to USB, and then a PCI-e port coming in for power.  Still though, you're most likely not going to make a profit.  I'll post back here if I find the product.

Why reply to a thread that was probably answered for more than a year now? That doesn't make sense.

No point in posting it though, because the question probably was answered way back 2013. But if you want to point it out still, that's fine. It can also be used for future reference.

dothebeats i resurrected the thread because I'm curious. There was no clear answer at the time because everyone was OOOOOOOOOOOO ASICS111!!! as far as profit I can make one with a setup like this (already am making profit but would like to decrease space & power consumption -->>> decrease heat).

whether or not I get some clear advice I will eventually hook up a rpi or another board to some external cards to mine x11

don't do it, it's a thing of the past, not profitable anymore, unless you use some super private miner, and also free eletricity and you have already made roi with your cards

Don't buy a gpu dedicated to mining. It's not going to return anything. It's either you're a large mining giant or you're a person offer goods and services.

A theorem stating that the square of the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other sides. It is mathematically stated as c 2= a 2+ b 2, where c is the length of the hypotenuse and a and b the lengths of the other two sides.

I have a box with an internal PSU and fans to plug in 6 GPU's and I can easily get more. The only issue is again it uses a PCIe-->USB-->PCIe interface or PCIe-->USB-->expresscard interface. it already mines in windows but once again i'd like to use it on a simple linux board

Has it been profitable yet?  Or have you profited from it?
I don't expect it bringing anything in. Unless you're mining alts.

Use ASIC for them. If you use a fan and a heatsink attached to it, it would have a longer lifespan. But if you can't afford to buy a expensive cutting edge ASIC, you probably shouldn't mine.
