I appreciate all the feedback and discussion.
I have been unable to get to my pc for a bit.
Basically, I have a couple people that would like to pool resources with me and put together 3 metal home depot racks with 12 open chassis on each rack that all have 6 rx480 8gb cards running windows 7 with claymore.
Electricity has always been a mystery to me, but, I put on my thinking cap and think I understand the 240v to 120v step down concept.
I guess I need to get a proper rig up and running while figuring out how to scale.
The machine that I built was all wrong because I was clueless about the cryptocurrency space and how I interpreted the way to get mining. The specs are as follows.
Board: Gigabyte Z170-HD3
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 64gb kit
SSD: 2 OCZ TR150 120gb in RAID 1
PS: EVGA 750 BQ Bronze
Case: Piece of junk
I added these after cpu solo mining on linux for a week or so and getting no where fast.
GPU: 2 XFX RX480 8gb
Hell I was a babe in the woods at the beginning of all this with no experience.
I see that people tend to favor sapphire cards which is all good, but I need to buy 216 and trying to find that many of them ain't easy. jet.com seemed the best shot for pricing but they will only do 10 at a time to keep re-sellers away.
So after learning a bunch a bought 2 asrock H81 PRO R2.0
And instead of buying a open chassis pre-built like I saw and was tempted to buy from ebay I decided I would follow this handy dandy guide I stumbled across here.
Anyway, I plan on figuring out how to scale the machines after I build a couple test ones after the new year as well as figure out where in the heck to put them.
I am open to collaboration on building a farm team farm lol pun intended and need all the help I can get understanding how to get all machines not to catch on fire or trip the breaker as soon I turn them on.
