Hardware for mining on win10

Dear ZCash-Community,
I need some help...
Is this setup reasonable?

ASRock 90-MXB3N0-A0UAYZ Motherboard Intel Z270 (couldbe a cheaper 1but i got a special price)

Celeron g3930

2x Ballistix Sport 4GB DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) UDIMM 240-Pin - BLS4G3D1609DS1S00CEU

2x Skylynn--PCI-E 4X Female to NGFF M.2 M Male Adapter Key Power Cable with Converter Card

7x YIKESHU PCIe PCI-E 16x 8x 4x 1x Powered Riser Adapter Card w/ 60cm USB 3.0 Extension Cable & 6-Pin PCI-E to SATA Power Cable - GPU Riser Adapter

1x Computer PCI-E VerlƤngerungskabel 16X to 16X Riser Extender Karte 23,5 cm

2x GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1080TI Gaming OC 11GB GDDR5X
2x Asus GeForce GTX1080TI-11G Founders Edition Gaming Grafikkarte

6x Asus Dual-GTX1060-O6G Gaming Nvidia GeForce Grafikkarte (PCIe 3.0, 6GB GDDR5 Speicher, HDMI, DVI, Displayport)

EVGA SuperNOVA G2 1300 1300W ATX 2.3
Or what would be adviseable?

thanks a lot!

personally I would use the riser card, not the riser adapter

again personally I would never use any GPU with a single cooling fan, cooling issues, no matter what fluff they put in the description about it.

If you are running two - 1080ti and six 1060's, you will need more than a single 1300w psu (fact)

Hello CA,
thank you for helping me! i appreciate it very much!

how much watt would you recommend?
on wikibooks they write the 1060s from EVGA need 95 to 100W and the 1080 ti's between 195 and 245...

i calculated (100W*6 and 225W *2)+10% scope + 200W for the rest of the rig
Are 1600 watts enough or around 2000?

ok, the single cooling fan gpu is cancelled.

You are very welcome.
If you are going to do stock and no overclocking, those cards and the motherboard, cpu, fans are going to put you at 1125w then the 1300w should work.

If you are going to do any overclocking then:
1080ti = 250
1060 = 135
total 1310w + 125w = 1435w so a plat. 1600w should work

I am using 2x GTX 1060 with single cooling fan running at 72 degrees without a problem. Not a single cooling issue.

what sol's are you getting? are you overclocking?

the 1080 and 1080ti single fan's lose 100+ h/s compared to the double and triple fan options.

Hello, it'S me again....

what psu would be reasonable? a combi or a single?

EVGA 1000 Platinum + EVGA 650 Platinum

EVGA 750 Platinum + EVGA 850 Platinum

or should i just - keep it simple - like this:

and in case of a combi psu sys i just need something like this pretty little thing, or?

muchas gracias

Get two 750 or 850 watt PSU's and this dual PSU connector:

A LOT less money, too.

I am getting 316 Sol/s with 1060 6GB and 270-280 Sol/s with 3GB which is same as any other 1060.

I appreciate you posting your numbers, maybe the single fan cooling and a drop in H/S is a difference between the 1060's and the 1080 / 1080 ti's architecture . I know for fact that the single fan 1080/1080ti's produce lower H/S than a dual and tripple cooling of the same type of GPU

That's because of slightly higher clock speeds and memory - not because of fan.
