I have 8 Radeon VIIs and they run hot, 80 degrees and 75mh on eth.  RX 580s are a little more power but a hell of a lot cheaper card.  If I could run a cool stable 90mh I would buy more but mid 70s makes them less of a buy, still more efficient buy not buy  a huge margin.

What gear are you planning on buying?  I've been expanding my small farm buying z11s, Radeon VIIs, GTX 1660s and RX 580s.  Right now is is prime time before a big bull and price of gear sky rockets.

I tripled in size last year.  Last year was the time to expand as everyone was dumping their stuff.  It's already getting expensive again.  If im buying anything it will be P102 or 104's.

What on earth do u need 4mw for ? For comparison you can build a 1mw solar form for about 1.5 million
And it would net you 20k a month or soon solar buy backs.

I know he’s probably using hydro which is probably near free , but 4mw is so much power sitting idle, 4mw of ASICS would cost like 10million

Not sure where you get your facts from but a solar farm that big is 5-6 million after rebates and would not even fit on a roof.  I know because I priced it.  This is a commercial one not a turd and batteriers transfer switch and everything else needed to integrate it.  

Why would you put solar on a roof ? you can buy/lease land cheaply at those prices and ground mount, 5-6 million is like 3x what it costs with all the rebates , batteries ? no one uses batteries comerically , you overproduce and sell back to the grid and that how you pay for the power you use if you have to mine.  What im basically saying is with the amount you are investing why even mine ?  Theres lots of easier ways to make money off the grid and a solar farm would be easy pickings as you can basically mine for free and sell excess back to the utlity.

Hey guys do you understand that 4mw from hydro/coal/biogas etc..etc.. is not equal to a 4mw solar plant? We always forget to use "kwP" for solar production

OK you are right I'm not going to argue.

Why even mine?  Because I'm a miner.  Please check what site you are on.

love the set up man! I am still trying to get mine up and running - so far, only have the land - dont have liquid funds to build it so trying for a loan - that is harder than I thought especially since the electric company wants me to secure the loan first and the bank wants me to secure the power first but I have not given up yet! lol

I wish you success in your affairs. I think you have already weighed all the pros and cons of taking money in a bank loan for mining - after all, this is a really risky undertaking, since after creation of a mining farm it will only become cheaper

Thanks bud I appreciate it.

Just a bit of free advice:
If you can't afford to do it without loans, don't do it.  That is the only reason I did not go under like most everyone did in 2018.  I own everything in my place as well as my building.  I have lines of credit but I don't use them.

a loan is the only way I am going to be able to do it lol I aint got millions sitting around. I own the land outright - but need the loan to build.

risky deal if we have another downturn like 2018 you will be hurtin.  Collectors don't care they just want their cash.  So maybe scale up or something?  Just be careful bro because I don't have to tell you, crypto is crazy!  Tongue

my purpose is not to just have it for mining but to also double it as a data center - and you are right, it is crazy but I am not planning of leaving it Smiley

Be careful with the plan on having it double as a data center a most of what data centers required is significantly more than what a mining center needs driving cost up dramatically and can extend the time to ROI.  Also, a lot of data centers struggle to fill rack space and as the number of cores per processor increase this decreases the amount of data center space each customer needs.

I doubt he meant data center as that is 5x + the cost of a mining center.  My mining center is fully filtered etc, but it's still a mining center.

no, I meant data center. There is a large need for them here. and many data centers here are also doubling by renting out space for miners as well.

be careful i know of a bunch of T3 1/4 filled data centers.  you might want to actually look for a failing one and buy it because you will not be able to build it as cheap.  The big guys are running around snapping up for 15 million a 40 million $ to build data center.

Either way man I wish you luck though!

I have considered buying one as well and almost did buy one in Tampa but decided I rather build one on the property I already own and if I do build, it is not going to be a very large one, I would be happy with a 3k to 3.5k sqft facility.

and thank you.

The reason they are renting out space to miners in those fancy data centers is because they can't fill the with normal business style servers.

I wish you luck with the mining.
