Thanks -- getting visas and such might be a challenge, but interesting.

I guess a smaller "farm" (50kW) would be easier to get up and running in light commerical areas (say in the US).

Okay you are USA based correct?

Yeah. I would suggest a mixed farm

A few L3+ rigs to mine LTC and Doge.

A few gpu rigs and maybe a few BTC rigs.

Go for

32.0k in gpu
 7.0k in ltc
 7.0k in btc

hold 5k for fuck ups


you could buy 1 or two of these cases.---- my 2 arrive on Friday I will setup a build and see how they do.

Thanks for the advice!  How'd the new rigs turn out?

So well all know I did pretty good with Doge.  Should have been better but still very well.

I have found a coin that may do nicely.

XEC


https://support.viabtc.com/hc/en-us/articles/900004339303


I mine it at viabtc.com

I use 1 rig of my sha256 gear an s15 set to low.

It does 21th about 134,000 coins a day

I started when coins were.

0.000022 usd

coins are now

0.000046 usd

I am up to 2.9 million coins.



If you have a lot of sha 256 gear and point 1 unit to this the upside is huge.

134,000 x 365 = 48,910,000 coins mined in a year with 21th. yeah diff will go up.

So say it mines 25,000,000 coins  if price moves to 0.00046

25,000,000 coins are 11,500 usd

a 21th machine mining btc would mine .067 btc with no diff change or maybe 0.04 btc in a year at 100k btc that is 4000

So we have 21th of 1100th mining XEC

it is ladder sale set at

0.000091
0.000910
0.009100
0.091000
0.191000
0.291000
0.491000
0.891000
1.189100

we have 2,918,985  coins at 0.000046

I will post back on this play in a month.

Plan is to mine it for 1 year.

It mines at a profit daily.

even with 15 cent power.

as 24 kwatts on low is 3.60 and 21 x .34 = 7.14

that is a $3.50 profit with 15 cent power.

So mine it sell 5 usd worth a day

you bank 1.40 usd cash and stack a lot of the coin.

It is literally no risk

If my power bill was $3.60 for it and I mined 135000 coins.

Sell 100,000 for $4.60 pocket 1 dollar and stack 10,000 coins

It is a no brainer to try it for 10 days.

you make  10 bucks  profit

you stack 100,000 coins list them for

0.0046 x   50,000 =   230 dollars
0.0460 x   50,000 = 2300 dollars

the worst you do is make 10 bucks.

which is pretty fucking good.

So to follow up this coin went from:
 0.0000220 to
 0.0003900 to
 0.0002168


I have 4,218,000 I mine 100,000 a day

I sold 2,000,000 I made a few bucks.

I still see a solid pump here if you have a lot of gear point an s9 or 2 at it.

2 s9's will make 35,000 coins a day

list the 35,000 every day in an upwards ladder.

ie today they are 0.0002168

first day mining list

35,000 at 0.0008888

second day list

35,000 at 0.0011111


third day list

35,000 at 0.0022222

fourth day list

35,000 at 0.0033333

go up the ladder for 10 days and assess.

Found a source for PNY Rtx A4000 cards

We got 18 of them

They do 63 mh at 120 watts.

They sold out dealer had 65 yesterday and now has 0.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FCBKau5xK00

They arrive monday. I will post results.

I am getting 2 more cases for 12 cards.

I will mix in these with my 3090 cards and have beastly rigs.



so first one came

tomorrow 6+6+5 =17 more.

I am playing with clocks


it is doing 50 mh at 115 watts.

that is the a4000

It is clocked to

core         +10
memory   +1400
watts       115

new number below

core           -100
ram           1500
watts           111



new settings

core. -200
ram.  2100
watts   129.     57.94   Room is hot.    

I will add some heatsinks. But decent numbers

this card is a one slot low power. commercial blower design. power is capped at 130 watts.

bh has stock but bumped price up I paid under 1200 tax + shipping included. they want 1400 + tax

smos screenshot.  the zotac  3090 also needs more cooling

Not really a sharer, but why not.

Removed the fans from a S9 and tested it with an inline duct fan, with reduced speed.
It is very very tolerable, i could say silent but not bedroom silent, definitely kitchen/TV room plausible!

Miner is underclocked at 8.6V/550mhz/1000W

reminds mo of my portable AC, when the fan (plastic) breaks (the one that vents the compressor and condenser heat). i can't find the replacement fan so i used a duct fan to suck the hot air from the exhaust.

BTW it is a 2hp aircon getting cooled.

inline duct fans are much quieter than the ventilator fans and are pretty durable(bearing type).

just make sure to make routine/preventive maintenance on capacitors after 2-3years, they are the first one to go..always have spares.

Thanks for sharing. I was just looking at doing something like this with my L3+ that is sitting in my garage. Winter is coming and I want every bit of the heat its generating in my house.

What are the specs on your duct fan and what speed are you running it at?

Thanks!!

Okay the 12 card boards are both running.

each has eight cards

 4x 3090
 4x a4000


and

4x 4090
3x a4000
1x 3060ti

very close to equal

668mh/1.65kwatts

662mh/1.65kwatts

now this is a money setup  about 29k. maybe 27k as I got some lower prices on the 3090 I mine over 2000 more like 5000 maybe 6000 so say I am out 21k right now

this earns about 92 a day power is 3.5 kwatts or 84 a day or 15 a day so I net 77 a day

21000/77= 272 days. all gear under 3 year warranties. the evga 3090's all have 5 year warranties.

It's an 6 inch inline duct fan from Aliexpress. Exit is 150mm so i bought the adaptor https://www.checkreality.co.uk/large-antminer-cooling-fan-duct-to-6-inch-152mm-vent-for-s7-s9-t9-d3-a3-l3/
They have a few more, there's even some for dual fan miners like the new ones.

I strongly suggest inline fans with built in controller already. Added one to mine but there's this electronic clicking on it that's the most noticeable thing about it.

The EVGA queue from last November just hit with a 3090 gaming card for $1900.

Is it worth it?

They all are good or bad or indifferent.

I have used all of them with mixed results.

I do prefer Avalon since they stick to only sha 256.

If I had to rank all the ASIC companies I used in the past I would do it like this

1) Spondoolies
2) Avalon
3) Gridseed
4) Bitmain
5) KnCMiner
6) CoinTerra

Keep in mind, 4 of those no longer exist.

The Spondoolies had the best build quality. It was pretty much military grade. I think its why they didn't make it. Because they couldn't keep up with Bitmains cheaper build quality and price. I remember back in 2015 when there was a price war with the SP20 and the Antminer S5. They basically had to sell the SP20 at a loss due to Bitmains price cut.

What would you charge someone to cover the cost of running a GPU mining rig at your place?

This fee should cover basic maintenance, upkeep and profit switching, cost for management software (HiveOS, Awesome Miner, etc).

And should this fee include electricity or would you make that a separate fee?

I'm not looking to do this on a large scale, just running a rig or two for a friend that is pretty computer illiterate, and doesn't have the space to do it himself.

Okay a lot of ways

he provides the rig
you do everything else

split the coins

do the math on the idea above.

It would favor you since eth is very profitable .

You could do

30-70
40-60

50-50. we do this with the big mine but it has tons of sha 256 which make less per watt then the gpus.

60-40
70-30

40-60 is likely fair.

40% for you and 60% for him

I know you know how to do the math. I am not  sure how cheap the power is for you.

I know you know how to do the math. I am not  sure how cheap the power is for you.

I actually did this with a buddy of mine.   I had replaced a bunch of gpus with more efficient gpus (replaced 1080ti with 3060ti) because i was at max power usage in my loft.  popped the main breaker a few times. Roll Eyes

So i had extra gpus that wheren't being used.  So i made a deal with a buddy of mine, he supplied the power and place for a few gpus (these were completely paid of a few couple years ago), and in return we split the eth (50-50) that the miner produced.

worked well until the heat got to much for his wife.
