Hello Everyone, been doing some due diligence but haven’t found a lot of info on 10+ 1080TI GPUs on one rig only.
I compiled a list of items needed but due to lack of experience and how expensive the entire cost will be I’d rather make sure I am going in the right direction before committing to a purchase.
Just to let you know, my electricity cost is zero (Please I kindly ask not for anyone to ask how or why, the country I live in give’s me that option and that’s all we need to know because it’s off topic; thank you) so power efficiency is irrelevant to me and my only cost will be the actual hardware investment.
Here’s what I was looking at :-
ASRock H110 Pro BTC+ Motherboard + Comes with CPU, RAM, 16GB SSD with ethOS MOBO/CPU/RAM/ethOS Bundle for 13 GPUs
5x GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GV-N108TAORUS X-11GD 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Xtreme Edition Video Card
5x MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
2x CORSAIR AXi Series AX1500i Digital 1500W 80 PLUS TITANIUM Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply with C-Link Monitoring and Control
10x COBOC RISER-1X216X-SATA USB3.0 PCI-E PCI Express 1X to 16X Riser Cable Card Adapter w/ SATA 15pin Power Slot, 60CM USB 3.0 Cable Dedicated for BTC Bitcoin, LTC, ETH - Red
2x ModMyMods 24-Pin Dual Power Supply Adapter Cable - 30cm - Black (MOD-0210)
Now my question is do I have everything correctly setup here?
Am I missing anything and are all the items compatible with each other?
Will the 2 PSUs cover the entire 10x GPUs, MB and risers?
Is the dual power adapter correct?
Are the risers correct?
Did I choose the correct OS to start with or should I go with Windows 10? (I aim for most profitability and I was looking at dual mining ZEC and ETH, what does anyone suggest?)
What can I expect in monthly return or are the calculators all correct?
Please note that power is completely irrelevant to me as it is free from the wall socket.
Thanks in advance for any help everyone, cheers.
P.S. I tried linking more than one item but as a new user the forum wont allow it; so just copy the name of the items that are not linked above to www.newegg.com and it’ll list up if you want to take a look.
