Hey guys,

Im going to start building my first mining rig with 6x RX 580 8GB NITRO+ GPU's



GPU - 6x Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB NITRO+ £296
CPU - Intel Celeron G3900 2.8 GHz LGA1151 2 MB Cache Boxed £34
MOBO - ASROCK H110 PRO BTC+ Intel H110 1151 ATX £124
CASE - Building one

RAM - Not sure if there is a recommend type? Would any cheap DDR3 ram work? any benefits to using better RAM?
PSU - Going to get a gold cert, 1200w+, any recommendations?


I will be using the rig to start mining ETN.

ASROCK H110 PRO BTC Supports DDR4 2400/2133 only, so DDR 3 will not work!

I'm using ASUS B250, and really happy with it.

For PSUs, stick to those with the guts made by reputable OEMs, such as Seasonic, SuperFlower, and FSP.

Those done by HEC, CWT, Sirfa/Sirtec, to name a few, aren't too great. To be honest, they're *probably* fine, but I personally wouldn't trust them for 24/7 operation on a powerful rig.

Any no-name PSUs should generally be avoided.


Also note that you can use more than one PSU, rather than a single powerful unit.

Two Corsair or EVGA 750 or 850s would be a great idea for PSUs and may end up costing less than buying a 1200 version of a reputable brand.
