Rig Pr0n - Show me yours I'll Show you mine

Ok, So mine is not sexy and needs to be cleaned up a little. I went cheap on the rack. One of my risers is down so I plugged right into MB until the new pack of risers come in. I also installed a 20 amp breaker on 12-2 wire so I had a dedicated circuit to run the 2 PSUs. Once configured I set it up in the garage. All stock no mods. Only changed a setting in motherboard bios for PCIE setting to gen2, 8x4x4x and 96 latency. I never built a rig before and this is my first attempt at mining. So far so good. :slight_smile: Certainly thanks to these forums I got where I am. It is a little addicting… anyway just posting a pic of my setup and I’d love to see yours for ideas for my next one.

I like your use of the shelf rack :slight_smile: looks very similar to something i have seen recently, cant put my finger on which rig exactly LOL :slight_smile:

Yes, I got that from you :wink: Thanks!

trying to find the other vid that shows the rest of my rigs :slight_smile:
and your very welcome, thanks for watching
burn one for me heh?

I do live in Colorado :wink: I'll check your video out.

Sweet. Looking into building my own rig as well. What the estimated ROI for this rig?

Look here and edit your title :wink:

my ROI is quite high like 7-8 months... but who really knows... I made some assumptions from here:

If the price keeps dropping could be forever + 1

Why do you have your one GPU on the 6th slow rather than the first?

One of my risers crapped out. Just temp until new ones arrive.

HOw much do you pay for your electricity in CO? :frowning: it's expensive over here in So. Cal. I can't run more than one rig just because starting from 2nd rig, my electricity will cost me 22cents/KW. im jealous for those who pay less for electricity

My bill shows $0.0763 in Colorado Springs. not sure about the rest of the
state.

dubie: Nice! I didn't know the Springs was so cheap - is that the low or the 24 hour average?
I live in the mountains above Golden @ 8000ft and we are 4 cents off peak and 15 cents peak - comes out to 10.432 cents per killowat averaged over a 24hr period. (United Power Cooperative).
Of course then every month there also is a $17 "facility charge" and sales tax.

Cheers.

Jimmy: So do you have a variable rate that increases the price if you use more than a certain amount?

This is what my bill shows. Colorado Spring Utilities. We get one bill for natural gas, electric, water and waste water all on one bill. Each service is itemized on bill. Below is a picture of my most recent electric portion. Does not include any mining activity as I just started mining a few days ago.

that actually the 7th not the 6th

Yea man, 1st 200KW cost 10cents, next 200kw cost 15. The rest will be at 22cents. California suck man

:cry:

I pay 0.23 $ per every kWh + 4.60 $ per Month fix.

That is the reason, why i started to buy solar panels and a wind generator - but this stuff is expensive too.
