The troll on here has obviously been revealing that he is delusional and paranoid. Now, he's also exhibiting homosexual preoccupation or tendency. Tsk, tsk! That's pretty F'ed up! It's definitely a handful even for a topnotch shrink.

It's entertaining indeed. It's always good to have a "town fool" to offer comic relief. Royalties used to keep them to keep the court alive and entertaining. So, in a way, it does keep my court (my thread) alive and entertaining.

The rig that I posted last cost under a grand. I built it with some recycled components and geared towards gaming and not Bitcoin mining. Otherwise, it would have cost at least twice as much.

Interesting. Bro Carneseca you've already said your piece, let it go. I think its okay if your negative opinion is about Bitcoin mining and not against kulukuy. I, and I think, a lot of forum members are interested to learn about this technology. It's time to let members learn and decide for themselves if this Bitcoin mining is really worth our time. :peace:

Build log of my first AMD-based system ever which was built from scratch; this weekend's project. It is intended to be a dedicated Bitcoin miner though obviously a capable gamer also:

The shell. It's the only R-ATX I could find which happens to also incorporate "V-Air" (vertical-air flow) design. This setup is ideal if cooling the GPUs were to be a priority since Bitcoin mining utilizes the GPUs 99% full time and produces a lot of heat; more so than gaming...

Image


...two 140mm ducted fans at the bottom to push cool air vertically towards the top of the case. The PSU must be front-mounted (left) for this configuration to work...

Image


...two huge 230mm fans to suck hot air out that accumulates at the top of the case that's mostly coming from the busy GPUs...

Image


...optical drive and fan controller mounted...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811998100

Image


...recycled a pair of 160GB WD Caviar Blues in RAID 0 (top) as an intermediate data storage (they used to be the boot/apps drive of my gaming rig before replacing them with SSDs) and a pair of 120GB SSDs in RAID 0 (bottom) as the boot/apps drive...

Image


...that PSU is "gimongous"! I thought it wasn't gonna fit...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003PJ6QVU/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i03

Image


...but no worries, there's a lot of room in this case...

Image

Image


...always the fun part - cable management...

Image


...but wait, I gotta do the motherboard first...


...the motherboard mounted on the reversible tray (R-ATX/ATX) with the CPU on it...

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005UBNKZG/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i01

Image


...motherboard tray inserted in the case...

Image


...all connections secured and all cables hooked up and stowed...

Image


...the two GPUs. There's another PCIe slot in between those two cards for another dual-slot GPU but I highly doubt the temps would be manageable if I sandwich one more in there; not while mining anyway...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102987

Image


...this is the part that I had to really think a lot about. Air cooling the CPU was definitely not an option since those "gimongous" air coolers would only disrupt V-Air not to mention that they introduce more heat inside the case. Though the case has room for up to a 480 radiator at the top, it would only be pulling out hot air from inside the case thereby heating up the liquid coolant and getting high CPU temps as a consequence. I was also considering externally mounting a 360 rad on the rear of the case but just the same, it would be feeding off of the rear exhaust of the GPUs (devising a deflector of some sort would be a possible solution though) and I also don't like the idea of someone (including myself) accidentally taking out the exposed radiator and fans. So, this was the best option and it is working very nicely...

Image


...front view...

...side view without side panel...

Image


...side view with side panel equipped with an additional 230mm intake fan to introduce more fresh air to the GPUs and also feeding the push/pull radiator right in front of it inside the case...

I'm able to get 386 Mhash/s (Megahash per second) out of each of these GPUs for a total of 772 Mhash/s:

Image


With my other rigs mining with this one, I'm doing a little over 1 Ghash/s (Gigahash per second). I look forward to building additional mining rig or rigs to be able to yield a total of at least 2 Ghash/s. That should allow me a certain level of competitiveness.

I still don't know what I said that left this guy butt-hurt. This guy is very sentsitive to criticism like a home school kid. However, your right, I will take your advice and leave it a lone. Last post on this thread. Promise.

I feel like a space cadet with this bitcoin thing. I have a couple of
questions that I hope are not way off-tangent--

Doesn't one have to invest in an expensive bitcoin rig and install it
in a space to muffle the noise and in a temperature conducive just
to be in the game. (?)

E-gold hasn't really taken off so the net may favor a different form
of e-currency, du jour, at any time right? It may be bitcoin today
but something else tomorrow. So there goes one's investment. (?)

Like I said; delusional, paranoid and homosexual preoccupation and tendency. Now, leave the big boys club and let us conduct manly business and find some helpless member to troll on in some other bullturd thread. But even though you'll not be posting here as you "promised", I'm very certain you'd be scanning this thread for Bitcoin mining tips. Right?

I'm more interested in the rig than the bitcoin. Are you in the US TS? How much are these rigs?

You can install the Bitcoin client with very minimal computer resources. It's P2P so it's similar to a torrent client but the entire blockchain is only a little over a gig at this point in time compared to the size of contents most people download from torrents. The blockchain is accumulative; so it will only download transactions you missed since your client fully updated the blockchain (when you last opened it). The client allows you to have a wallet and public addresses (to which payments are sent) and to send payments to any Bitcoin public address as well through the private key of your wallet.

Mining is a totally different animal. You can mine with your current rig but obviously, just like any other endeavor in life, the more equipped you are, the better the chances of being successful. I finally realized that Bitcoin mining is all about Mhash/s (Megahash per second) or hash rate or hash power. While gaming has frame rates, Bitcoin mining has hash rates. In both cases, the higher the better. As for me, I build rigs for other purposes also. So, mining is just another function or a byproduct which is potentially profitable.

I didn't really follow any internet cash systems before. All I know is that Bitcoin is currently traded at around $10 per Bitcoin at the exchanges. That would make it the highest-value currency at this very moment; better than the USD, EUR and GBP. Sure, any economy could literally topple over overnight but the key is how to take advantage of it's rise and fall. That's what the financial market is all about. People have been making money off of a rising and a falling economy.

Oops! I just realized I missed the info on the RAM. Here it is:

BTW, the build using these components fired right up with nary an issue or a hitch. Kudos to Corsair and MSI...and AMD.
