Just wanted to say hi to everyone i am new to zcash mining will be building my own rig.


Welcome and good luck!

I have no idea on gpu yet still doing research on that I was looking at AMD Radeon™ RX 580 4GB 256-Bit

Here’s my post on building ZEC mining PC’s from 1060 3gb’s:

Happy mining!

Thanks for the helpful tip

I’m using the GTX 1070 and have been very happy with them. They are more expensive, but deliver a correspondingly higher hashrate for the same wattage. There is also a 1070ti coming out sometime in November.

I think the 1070’s are a bit easier to config as you don’t need to modify the bios and/or run them under Linux to get the fullest out of them, but I keep thinking about getting some 580s as the price is so attractive. Either way, you really can’t go wrong.

The motherboard and cpu look good to me. I’d recommend 8gb of memory as some peoples rigs crash with only 4gb. I’ve heard it has to do with being able to load all the drivers, and in particular the video drivers, into memory. You can find some threads on here about that or maybe some people with more experience and/or smarter than me will be able to confirm 4gb will be fine.

Thank you I will order and other stick of ram and look into the 1070

Let some other people weigh in. You might not need the 8gb. Save some money…

I do 8GB ram, a basic pentium processor, and SSD HD on all of my rigs

You’ll be fine with 4GB of RAM, as long as it’s a dedicated mining machine and you’re not doing any multitasking.

thank yes it will be i already have a gaming pc.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Black Edition Graphics Card - 11GB GDDR5X
looking to get x10 of these
from what i read on here 680 sol/s is what this card get
6800 sols is what i would get on these cards.
and that 6800 hash-rate power correct what would this be in mh/s
