If anyone else would like to post their mining set-up/anticipated set-up to be discussed please feel free to!!

I'm trying to get non-newbie status and I'd rather spend it being productive than be a derfer.  Grin

were you planning on running BAMT(Linux) or windows? Because I suspect there might be issues with mixing different gpus under windows. My 3x5870+1x5970 system won't play nice on win7x64. I hope you got good ventilation Wink

If you think my comments have benefitted you it would be nice to hear thanks Smiley

Any idea's about the total power consumption?

I would recommend personally buying a high end gaming laptop from a source such as alienware or similar and then joining a mining pool.

Also choosing your miner is essential.

I've heard great things about diablo miner but currently I am using an experimental one called pristine miner.

A friend developed it using scripts he found from various miners and it exploits a basic principle which allows one block to be hashed multiple times which increases the speed of mining exponentially.

2 HD6870 589MH/s
1 HD5870 408MH/s

if your mobo permits you should consider selling or trading the 6870s for more 5870s, since 6870s are twice the price of 5870s and don't put out nearly the same MH/s/$

I definitely plan on running a Linux OS specifically for mining, though at this point I'm not sure if it's going to be BAMT or Ubuntu or Linuxcoin or what. Actually, any guidance in this area of software choice would be greatly appreciated.

And of course, good ventilation will be good  Cool

Any idea's about the total power consumption?

each 5870 uses up approx. 188W (+10% for overclock and +10% factor of safety) = 226W ea.
1 StablePower 750W for 3 x 226W = 678W
1 StablePower 750W for 2 x 226W (+200 for system power) = 652W

Despite not being commonly used, the Xclio StablePowers are actually top tier in terms of efficiency and stable output.

Not seriously. But that's because I'm not that familiar with FPGA mining.

It seems that the biggest advantage of using FPGA mining is that the MH/W is ridiculous compared to GPU mining (http://bitcoinfpga.com/).
But the MH/s/$ rate is much lower, though I would be very interested if someone can produce a cost/profit over time graph for these FPGA compared to a relatively standard 4 GPU mining rig. The DIY FPGA by rph seems quite promising though (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=44891.0) if I was learned in the art of soldering that is...

Yeah man its a great little program.

It really speed up my hashing rates and I've already seen better payout times.

Want to get a mining pool up and running or learn more about the mining pool scene in general.

Look forward to spending more time on the forums.

Thats great.

Thats exactly what its supposed to do it edits the binary reaction your computer has to the bitcoin hashing algorithm and reenters it to allow for multiple block hashing.

All the rest is beaurocratic hoopla.

But for the sake of peace I'll refrain from posting it any more.

Besides Spooky Snacks just got a bunch of investors to fly him out to florida to further discuss the potential of pristine miner!

He sent our co developer a video before he met up with them and we are using it for promotional purposes!

This sentence makes no sense. You sound like a complete idiot.

All the rest is beaurocratic hoopla.

Graet is the pool owner/operator of http://ozco.in which is one of the best run bitcoin mining pools. Again, you have made yourself look like a complete idiot.

But for the sake of peace I'll refrain from posting it any more.

This sentence makes you seem a little smarter.

Besides Spooky Snacks just got a bunch of investors to fly him out to florida to further discuss the potential of pristine miner!

Funny that your buddy has a Gators hat on and is in Florida. Maybe he already lives there......

Heres the link for authentication : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FKBAHPB3WQ&feature=youtu.be

NOT a download link.

Again, quite a lot of lulz that your buddy who already lives in Florida is shooting a video of himself in Florida.

Um I'm pretty sure spooky snacks does not live in florida but all the more power to you ip mongers.

The fact of the matter is pristine miner is cutting edge mining technology that no one can deny.

And its taking off so get with the program

Much thanks to Graet for uploading this:

http://anubis.iseclab.org/?action=result&task_id=198c572ecfae79b34d5801326f93b643c&format=txt

Looks like a rootkit to me. Everyone that said this is legit/looks legit should be banned.

Well now, be fair. The only one to use the phrase 'legit' was me. And I didn't say 'this is legit' or 'looks legit', I said 'seems legit' which is completely different: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/seems-legit-sounds-legit.

Oh, okay now I understand. So it's a bit like these curtain rings copper bracelets which hold up curtains really well re-align my chakras by altering their quantum vibrational energies so they return to a more balanced state.
