    Thank you Ciprian!
    And what about “Sapphire RADEON RX 470 4G or 8G GDDR5 Mining Edition”?
    Can be a equal or better solution if available?

    • ukw

      I think it can be a good mining solution, but you are stuck with it, you can’t probably sell it later on since it most likely doesn’t have connectors for monitors.

      • there is a hidden hdmi connector πŸ˜€

    • It is a good choice, i am also using them πŸ™‚

  • Shaggy Sloan

    On your PSU suggestion, Do I only need 1 PSU to run the 6 or 8 card mining rig? I was just adding all these components to my Amazon shopping list and thought 2 PSU’s might be more applicable. Also do you have an open air frame suggestion for Amazon shopping as well?

    • Hey @shaggysloan:disqus , you will need two PSU of 850w tor un 8 cards at once πŸ™‚ here is a nice looking frame for 8x gpus

      • Shaggy Sloan

        Thanks, I kind of thought 2 PSU’s were needed.

      • Petar

        Hey Ciprian, I am planning to buy 2 of Seasonic Focus Plus 750 Gold so my question is can i connect 3 GPUs to one PSU because i cant seem to find good enough review. I am not sure PSU has all cables for 3 GPUs + 1 CPU. Did you have any experience with this PSU?

        • Hi, i never used that psu :/

        • ukw

          I’ve that PSU, You can connect 4 GPUS on it (2 cables, each has 2x 8pins power connectors), I currently have a 100W CPU + RX 580 + 1060 3gb and its all fine, so I guess 3 GPUS is possible with a less power hungry CPU. Just Make sure you calculate how much your system use and leave a 100W margin.

  • Petar

    Hi Ciprian,

    I see you listed that Corsair RM750x PSu is good for building 6 GPU mining rig. My question is can i connect 3 GPUs per one Corsair RM750x. Because i kept looking on internet and i seem to understand i can only connect 2 GPUs on one PSU Corsair RM750x. I dont see cables for 3 GPUS + 1 CPU. I am used to EVGA G2 750W.


    • Yes indeed the PSU has two PCI-e cables but each cables has two heads and you have power two GPUs with one cable.

  • Kazma

    First i have to thank you for all the information you have on the homepage. This is amazing.
    IΒ΄m very new to this but iΒ΄m very interessted on building my own rig, but i want to start with only 3 GPUs. Does it even make sense to start with 3?
    Can you tell me why the 4GB graphic card and not a 8GB?
    And what is important at the PSU, how many pins is needed?
    Thank you.

    • Yes of course 3 GPUs are good to start the mining πŸ™‚ buy anything you can affort to start with. Check for PSU to have enough PCI-e cables to power up video cards.

      • Kazma

        Thank you. And can you tell me whatΒ΄s the difference at mining when i use a 4gb or 8gb GPU?

        • ukw

          There’s no difference, the only thing is that if you mine ETH you have to take into account the DAG size. Right now DAG is around 2.2 GB (Loads that into GPUS ram) and it will most likely reach 4GB+ in 2021 or so. (Search dag size calculator).
          All the difference is in the brand of the memory though (required for a good OC and higher hashrate), samsung being the best, followed by micron, hynix.. (not sure elpida where it stands).

          • Kazma

            Thank you very much.

    Hi Ciprian,

    I’ve read i think at least a quarter of your articles here, maybe more, i don’t know. You are a great guy, good job honestly.

    I have a small question for you. I have 6 RX 580 Nitro+ from Sapphire and 2 Corsair 750 plus 6 risers with sata to 6 pin connector, version 006C if you know them. So the question is…i heard that you can connect only maximum 2 risers on a sata cable and my PSU has 2 sata cable, each with 4 sata connectors. So basically i have to put 3 connector on one cable to the risers and the other cable i have to use all 4 sata connector, 3 for risers, 1 for ssd. Will it work? Some say, especially on bitcointalk, they won’t work this way and you can melt you cable. I really need some advice because i don’t know what to do… I repeat that i have risers with sata to 6 pin, not 4 pin, the old version, neither do i have the direct molex risers…

    • Hey @csgodedera:disqus (are you global? :P, i also play csgo) That’s true, i never power more than two risers per sata/molex cable. Connect two risers with one sata cable and one riser + ssd with the second sata cable πŸ™‚

    Hi Ciprian!

    I would like to tell you to be careful about recommending MSI Z270 Gaming M3 because it does not support 6 cards, only 4 working. I’ve had them and tried like hell to get them work with no luck at all.
    Below you can see a post from MSI forum telling people it does support only 4 gpus and the last post is showing pretty clear the cards that support 6gpus or over, and M3 is not there.

    I’m not trying to be rude, just to clear out that M3 is not going over 4 gpus.
    Glad you romanians like me make such great things. Keep it up πŸ˜‰

    • Have you tried playing with bios settings? πŸ™‚

      • Ionut Stancu

        Don’t play smart with me. I’m not a noob with stupid questions, I was just trying to help people so they don’t buy Gaming M3 because it won’t work with more than 4 gpus.
        I’ve bought this motherboard just after it was released and nowhere on the internet was a post or discussion about this mobo. Now, there are a lot of people saying they can’t run with more than 4 gpus, also the MSI team says that. They asked me on a support inquiry and also on the post above you can see that M3 is not listed on 6 gpus supporting motherboards.

        • Nu face nimeni pe desteptul aici, din cate tin minte am vazut riguri de 6 gpu cu placa asta de baza, acum sa nu o confund cu M5, erau gen specificatii instalat win in uefi, Kaby Lake generation processor (e.g. G3930) sau SkyLake (e.g. G3900), 4g decoding.. Acum daca tu zici ca nu ai reusit prin toate variantele.. probabil ca asa este. De obicei fac research foarte bine si trebuie sa mi se confirme in 4-5 locatii acelasi lucru inainte de al posta, probabil am gresit ceva..

          • Ionut Stancu

            Nu glumesc, chiar nu merge M3. Din pacate a trebuit sa le vand si sa achizitionez Gaming Plus si M5. Probabil confunzi cu M5.
            Repet, nu am vrut sa generez polemici, ci doar sa iti ajut cititorii sa nu pateasca ce am patit eu cu M3.
            Am facut tot ce spui tu mai sus… update bios mai tarziu dupa ce a aparut si degeaba. Neavand de ales, le-am “maritat” repede. πŸ™‚

          • Atunci sa le “delete-am” πŸ™‚

  • Thiago Marcelino

    Hi man (or another kind soul), help me. πŸ™‚
    I have h81 pro btc 2.0, 6x 1080 armor oc, 2x evga 850w BQ and 6x pci risers with molex ( Like these ).

    Should i plug 3x gpus and all pci in one psu and the other 3x gpu on the second psu or plug 3x gpus and 3x pci risers in one psu and the other 3x gpu and 3x pci risers in the second psu ooooor use the molex in the motherboard and don`t power any pci risers?

    Is there a problem if my energy goes down and up and de second psu (with a have a jumper on green and black cable and keeps on all the time) keeps on, while the main is off?

    Finally, is there some tweaks on that motherboard or tips for my config?

    Thanks in advanced guys, and sorry if a miss something. I`m Brazilian.

    • Hey @Thiagotwm:disqus , you should split the gpus and risers. Connect 3 GPUs + 3 Risers + MoBO, CPU, SSD with PSU1 and 3 GPUs + 3 Risers with PSU2, let me know if that answer your questions.

      • Thiago Marcelino

        Thanks man. I will try that.

        My second psu on while the main is off, is there any problem? i mean if the system turn off and i’m not near to manually shut down the second psu.
        I wanted to use ( these ) but a don’t find where a live, so i’m jump start the second.

        Is there some tweaks on that motherboard or tips for my config or on windows 10 64bit to make all 6 gpu work? like disable onboard video, make all pci gen2, rise the virtual memory etc.

        • Use these instead

          • Thiago Marcelino

            My only option is jumper.
            Now I have another problem, Windows only recognize 3 gpu. πŸ™

          • What mobo ?

          • Thiago Marcelino

            H81 pro btc r2.0. It was a Windows 10 64bit v1709 problem. I updated to latest updates now works, at least for the past 1h. Hehehe
            Waiting 24h of stability to do that 5% overclock ;).

            And hope altcoins stabilize, this down is getting me woried.

          • Thiago Marcelino

            Now a have some home power/wiring issues.
            Before i build this rigs i was thinking about the problems that may occur, and every single one of them is happening.
            At least i’m able to get over them, so far…

            About the overclock i don’t want my cards +80c 24h/7

  • Ricky Wesker

    my mining hashrate was 25 Mh/s, now it’s 598 Kh/s can anyone tell me why is it hapenning? I use nicehash.

  • Banana Knight

    Hi Ciprian! Hi Guys!

    I hope this aint to much of a noob question but IΒ΄m wondering if mining EtHash altcoins like e.g. ELLA or PIRL will become obsolete after ETH turns POS?

    Thank you for clarifying!

  • Nero Gruda

    Hi Ciprian ! Hi guys, im new at mining and i want to invest like $6K for building 2 rig’s.

Any suggestions are appreciated…

  • John Wansley

    You say these are the current best deals but there are no links to where you found the price on these items? What good does the information do anyone if you do not provide links to where you found these best deals? Maybe I am missing something but googling these items did not turn up any “deals” on these items. Can you please provide links to where these deals are or at least tell us how you are finding these deals? Thanks!

    • Hey @romne11:disqus , every product on this article have links, not sure why you can’t see them, if you are using adblocker turn it off.

  • Brock Huffaker

    All the deals must be gone…. :(. When I click the links the prices are all $100 – $150 more. Crazy price gouging going on right now.
