I would say that any respectable miner has at least one dedicated rig, and isn't just mining on an existing box that is in use.

About tree fiddy ghash/s.

Edit: Damn, nvm, guess I'm not respectable cause my mining rig is also my gaming rig.

I'd like to have 2.4 ghash/s but haven't found a decently priced 3rd 5970 yet, that and with my current set up they'd be right up on top of each other in my case and I think the heat would be a bit much.

Sold To: aggrojosh, FreeMoney (x2), challengeaccepted, the joint, TECHSHARE, BurntSnow, yrral, serp, waterskeer, jduck1987, grue (x2)

Bought From: bcjunkie, newdude, Zakcy, frank90, Chinaski, Cookie_Monster, DandoRealIta, Globes (x2), recursive

Leant To: kais3r (ended up being a scammer), jjzm

A year ago, for one short week, I was 0.5% of the network.

see i tried that and just didnt enjoy it.. jut felt my machine being more sluggish and blah...

I opted to build my first rig when i came across my 2nd 5970 and 2 5870's for insanely good prices...

funny thing is my 4870x2 in my gaming rig is ok for mining (220mh if you can believe it) but is still plenty good for gaming.. so ill just keep that in my desktop.. and run with the newer cards in the dedicated miner

I have always used the term serious miner (not sure if we are respectable).

Like:
If your garage sounds like an enterprise grade datacenter, you might be a serious miner.
If you spent time thinking how you could use 20,00 BTU/hr of waste heat, you might be a serious miner.
If you installed a 30A 240V dedicated circuit and matching NEMA L6-30R outlet, you might be a serious miner.
If you understood that, you might be a serious miner.
If you had a custom AC system installed other than a window unit,  you might be a serious miner.
If you are considering submersion oil cooling,  you might be a serious miner.
If you have started one or more bounty projects to improve a miner, you might be a serious miner.
If the members of your pool notice when you go offline faster your friends notice when you are missing, you might be a serious miner.
If when the weatherman says there are record lows in the forecast and your first though is "that will help my temps", you might be a serious miner.

On edit: changed format.

Consider I'm living in a country where -20 is common in January.

-If you can heat your feets with your mining rig, you're just starting.
-If you can heat a room with your mining rig, you have a nice hobby.
-If you're starting to save on heating because you heat the house, you're serious dude.
-If you can heat a whole 4-story house, with people keeping the windows open because it's too hot, and having the oil company giving you refunds on your heating bill, I believe it is the point where you are "respectable".

you're missing another one.

if you can produce extra heat and sell it to your neighbors cheaper than the oil company.

...wait, i think that's more like "overkill" than "respectable"

I am wondering if it would have been better to do the 240V 30A thing -- didn't know any better at the time.

I had our electrician put in 4 20amp circuits (120V) two weeks ago.

Higher voltage gives you slightly better efficiency. I'm just about to switch, so I should get a good clamp meter so I can determine the change in the power usage.

OK - help out those of us less electrically inclined  Wink

4 x 20A @ 120V = 80A * 80% = 64A @120 = 7,680 W

Now that is 1,920W per outlet or 960W per "plug".  Not quite enough for a 4x7970 rig or a 3x5970 + 2x5870 as the latter will pull close to 1200W.  This leaves one "plug" kinda worthless = BAD.

1 x 30A @ 240V = 30A * 80% = 24A @ 240 = 5,760 W

Then you need a PDU which can be had for ~$60.  These have tons of plugs but still need to balance the circuits...

Just thinking out loud here...

Might need another A/C unit too. Sad
