Looking to jump head first into GPU mining. I decided to go with the 1080 Ti founders edition because they seem to be able to be sold for close there original price slightly used (If I find out I really don’t like mining). That being said I have very little idea on what other hardware I should go with to get my 1080’s toiling away in the mines. If this turns out to be a hobby that I would like to continue for awhile I would like to upgrade to 8 1080s. Can anybody point me in the right direction or offer any advice?
hey man welcome to zcash
Did you ever build a PC ?
Yes. I actually already have a 1080 ti sitting in my gaming rig. I am
just not sure about a mother board that supports up to 8 gpus or power
supplies, or what kind of ram and processor to use.
check out this thread
if these are the single fan cooling GPU’s you are going to see a performance hit due to its inability to cool properly.
Is it suggested to get fans in the front and back of the rack to pull air across the GPU’s to help each units fans cool?
for these gpus i would advise the additional fans strongly.
You can send them to me!
