I originally posted this in the newbi section requesting to be set free.

Specs:
AMD Semron
AMD 890 Chipset with 6x PCIE slots
80Gig drive
Windows7 X64
Using Guiminer. (again lazyness)

700W Acepower PSU (Cost effective but very reliable)

5570     60-75Mhash       680Mhz GPU Clock          temps   83
6950     380Mhash          946Mhz GPU Clock          temps   62           64           68
6570     75-90Mhash       725Mhz GPU Clock          temps   68.5
6950     360Mhash          905Mhz GPU Clock          temps   79           84           89

cheers.





The total hash rate of the above is between 900 and 910Mhash according to slushpool
When I started generated around a bitcoin every 10 days, now with the release of Avalon it's up to 14days and counting due to increase of difficulty.

Price of hardware.
Motherboard + CPU + case = 120$
6950's 220$ for both
PSU = 75$
HDD was laying around
Radeon 5570 and 6570 were laying around the house.

All in all I am doing this for fun, I now have 2 bitcoins from the above and with the current price, it wont be long for my machine to pay itself off... about 1 more month.

I am looking forward to seeing ASIC machines drop in price in the future so I can get one... when demand goes down and when It's mandatory.


The beauty of it all is I don't pay for power. It's all included in the office lease.

Excuse the server room mess. It needs a good cleaning and half those machines need to get tossed.

Sorry for not posting pictures, today was a crazy day of changing ltc pools and sell sell sell -> mined a total of 38btc through ltc today. I dont think we will see that exchange rate again soon. It was a rush, litecoinpool, notroll crashed few times, at the end i switched to solo Cheesy

I'm water cooling 6 5970s using an unique technique.

Two 250cfm fans into two Ice Box heat exchangers with water flowing from my washer hookup back to the drain (my neighborhood splits the water bill  Wink)

It cools down the room quite a bit. You can feel the water inlet tube and it is cold, the water outlet tube is hot like it should be, so that means it's working.  Grin

This setup has been running stable for over a month with no problems.

NIce to see but inefficient as hell.... If you just use the water for this; let it run through the system and right into the drain; it's just a bad example of water usage Sad ...

Letting the neighbours pay for your mining isn't nice too :/

Yes- I am a terrible, terrible man. I'm not sure how I sleep at night.

In all seriousness.... Yes I'm wasting water, but if these weren't going then I'd be using a lot more electricity, which would have a similar effect to the eco system (nuclear power plant emissions).

Also, water is so so so cheap here that maybe my neighbors bill is like $0.25 more than normal....

You are also playing devil's advocate BR0KK, if you were really that worried about the ecosystem, then you wouldn't be wasting all that power to run a 4 GPU rig....

Never !  Tongue

Worry about being honest instead of a little spilt water.

Running the water like that is actually helping the environment because its diluting all the meds, chems ect..

A fault confessed is half redressed  Grin

I am definitely not a hippie. Before BTC i "wasting" power 24/7 with boinc -- boinc.berkeley.edu
But wasting drinking water in this way feels simply wrong to me.

Why do you not simply blow the heat outside with your 500cfm?

no offense....

Because it would exhaust some cool air as well, making my A/C more inefficient.

Wow, I am so jealous.  I've missed the bitcoin mining movement and shall regret it all my life.  Sad

Anyway, awesome rigs, guys, I enjoyed seeing pictures and the video too.  You guys are keeping our bitcoin system strong! 


it's funny to think how people thought that they had missed their chance to mine almost 2 years ago.

If you enjoyed the advice I gave, feel free to toss over some loose change Smiley

I haven't, started on June 1st.

But I regret not having started in 2009-2010. Or even in early 2011 when the price was <$1.

But I still would probably have sold the Bitcoins too early.

He has been told the same thing LONG time ago when he was asking us here on the forums.

Sadly, the twisted fucker even try to argue (see his post below) with some fcked up reason ever.

The thing is.... dumbfck, you pay for the damn electric you're using, not your neighbours.

Brokk pays his electricity so your point is moot. Do your parents behave like this? trash dump more trash i guess.

LOL.. It's not really for long term use, I had all the equipment lying around and I was just testing it out to see if it worked. It has only been going for about a month.

And what do you know about my parents? Stop acting like you know me.. I've held a job since I was 14 years old... I am no thief.

You guys going to bash on me for "stealing" (which it's not by the way- it's not.) Just cause I'm using more water than my neighbors... it's not my fault my stupid duplexes split the water bill in between everybody. Otherwise I would gladly pay it... THERE IS NO POSSIBLE WAY TO SPLIT UP MY WATER BILL SEPARATE FROM MY NEIGHBORS.. just be quiet and mind your own business.

You want me to go around and give a quarter to everyone in the neighborhood each month? Maybe in a year, they can have $3. Woohooo!

I'm sorry for sharing some pictures that I thought were cool... I will never do it again I promise.

I wouldn't run the cooling system personally, but i think it's cool that somebody did it for the sake of it.

No you wouldn't. I was curious about how much I would pay in water bills if I setup such a system when I started mining. If I remember correctly where I live the water would cost 5 to 10 times as much as the electricity used to power the rigs.

And I did the maths using the best conditions: I computed the lowest water flow possible based on low incoming water temperature and highest safe output water temperature (60°C which should be safe enough for the GPUs but may not be safe enough for the tubing, joints, ...).

eeeshhh...  Two risers daisy chained like that?  IDK if I could do that myself without worrying like crazy.  Then again for cards that draw less power, this may be less of an issue.
