BTW I just looked, at the time i bought these, the prices were the following. A bunch of 40gb hdds for 4 euro a piece. 2gb ddr3 memory sticks 7 euro a piece. Motherboards at 37 euro. Cpus at 29. And the PSUs were mixed. 850w XFX were bought with the idea of adding the third card at some time, those were 70 euro, and for other rigs it was Thermaltake 550w, i dont remember the price, but was cheap at like 45 euro. At these prices, it was not worth experimenting since the cards were 360 euro a piece, so the mobo+mem+cpu+hdd+psu was like 15% of the price of each rig, and at that rate it wasnt worth the fuss of making a custom solution.

Everything you sad sounds reasonable but at the end:

For the same amount of GH/s - my setups probably cost 2/3-rd of yours take 1/2 the space use less electricity, I've had very few problems, less rigs means less time setting them up lets say when power fails, btw I use Wi-Fi with 3G so no spaghetti on the floor, and the internet never stops. Cheesy

I can give you that my MB-s will be harder to sell, but only them. Everything else (besides VGAs) is similar to yours just 3 times less! WoW when I sad 3 times less I realized, u r a idiot Cheesy Cheesy

Greez all, just wanted to participate in here before asics take over. So there it is, thrown together back in the days gaining from low diff. Two MSI HD6870 twin frozr II (bios modded with rbe for low mem rate), a Sapphire HD5850, ancient ASRock K8SLI-eSATA2 with Sempron CPU, Linuxcoin usbstick, cgminer, uvnc remote administrated, wlan usbstick. I was a total linux noob but knowlege retrieved from this forum helped me to set up. Thanks guys for assistance, it were valuable hours! Soon sloppy MSI fans died and additional fans were equipped. Hours of testing resulted in maxed out MSIs 970 core and Sapphire 990 core, 370 mem both, stable, giving me around 1 Ghash/s. 100btc mined later, an inquiry from my energy provider and especially a horrific bill forced my to quit. Those were the days but that's ok, because there are mining operations to join in. Forget the old, greet the new!



the steel rebar adds a nice touch Cheesy

Only thing why I am an idiot is because I sold like 80% of bitcoins when it reached 19 USD... Would have made a nice difference with 23 today Smiley, but thats life, you win some, you lose some. Waiting for asics to hit, and to sell everything, was nice while it lasted. Will post the rest of the pictures tomorrow

Please I don't mean to insult you, that's why I put the  Cheesy Cheesy at the end.
I just think that your setup is wasteful, and there is no way I can agree that 2 is better than 6 Wink

But you ain't an idiot for selling at 19$ I've sold for 5-6$ a year ago, so I guess I'm the biggest looser.

And yeah the ASIC problem. One thing that I hate about it is although I knew they weren't going to do produce anything at least till January, ASIC fear stopped me from buying more GPUs and I would have made a killing if I had bought more by now.

Yeah I sold in the 5s too.  Stupidly got rid of most of my 5870s too thinking October was going to be it.   Now trying to scrounge up enough for some ASIC.

As promised, Room 2. I seriously have to consider buying a wide angle camera for these shots, I figured out that I cant take a single picture with all rigs because of tight space.

Yeah why only two cards per MOBO, you can at least put 4


 I can, but when I put everything in an equation, it costed me the same as getting motherboards with 2 cards. So I went for simpler solution Smiley

Simple and 99.999% fail safe ! Smiley

How many have been turned off by BTC mining because they got the impression that you need to risk burning down the house in order to compete/ become profitable ?

I started a fire once! Cheesy  Roll Eyes

Luckily it was only one PCIe Power cable for a 5870, and it stopped before things got out of hand. Smiley
