Nvidia Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming Mining Rig Tutorial

Ledger Wallet protects your bitcoins

Hey πŸ™‚ So.. here is my first step by step mining rig tutorial with Nvidia GPUs. As my previous tutorial with the RX 580 8GB LE, this one also is a very powerful mining rig, stable with good power consumption. The GPUs used for this one are the Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming 8GB, i decided to go with this cards because of the 3 fans, the temps for those are great!

Since the crypto mining rush i wasn’t able to find two EVGA 750w PSU, instead of that i used the Corsair CS750M ones. The rig was tested with two dedicated to mining motherboards: Gigabyte H110-D3A (click here for full review) and Biostar H81A BTC.

As usual, i tested the hashrate with different altcoins, algorythms and miners like: Ethereum (DaggerHashimoto) solo and dual mining, ZCash (Equihash), Decred (Blake (14r)), Siacoin (Blake (2b)), Pascal, X11Gost, Lyra2REv2 etc.. Claymore Dual Etheruem Miner, Nvidia Optimised Ethminer, EWBF’s CUDA Zcash and Nicehash.

Let’s get started!

2 Step 2 – Windows installation, Drivers and Mining Tweaks

3 Step 3 – 1x GPU test

Before installing all the GPUs i highly recommend to run some tests with only one GPU, i always use Claymore Dual miner when it comes about benchmark.

4 Step 4 – Connect all GPUs and Dual PSU

5 Step 5 – Power up the rig with all 6 GPUs

All set, all you have to do now is to start the miner, set the clocks, undervolt and start mining πŸ™‚

Here are my tests with this rig

  • ara

    DaggerHashimoto (ethminer) 171 Mh/s = 0.0537372 BTC/Day : how can it be possible ?

    • What do you mean ?

      • Morphias Morphias

        0.0537372 BTC/Day
        that could not be…. because in 19 days you would made 1.02 BTC
        would be a little bit to much πŸ˜‰

        • #Xb0xmod

          yeah it’s 0.05 ETH per day

  • TurboKaban

    Why do you buy 2 x psus for 750 at a price above 200 pounds when you can get one for 1200w for 250?

    • I got the PSUs much cheaper than that.. also i wasn’t able to find any 1200w or 1300w PSU..

      • TurboKaban

        Do you mind sharing how much you paid for those two? Thanks for the reply. But given the choice between 2x psus or 1 x psu if they would be equally priced. Which one would you go for?

  • Nem az aki, meg ami

    You like to throw out your money out the window! πŸ™‚ Daily profit with this 10USD. It worths its price! πŸ˜€

  • Cagdas Demir

    I want to start ETH mining and your website helping me very very good and thank you for it. When I start mining I am definitely going to buy you some beers πŸ™‚

    I am really confused right now, I was going to start with GTX 1060s but now I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to throw money out of the window and I want to make a good investment.

    When I setup my first rig will kh/s drop a while later?

    And this AMD problem is really kh/s drop day by day?

    I found this do you think better than setup my own rig? –

    Please help me about this πŸ™‚

    Thank you in advance.

  • Cosmic Tino

  • Alexander Derringer

    So I am building a rig with this Gigabyte H110-D3A motherboard, but for some reason, I can’t get risers that are plugged into the 16x slot to show up.

    I’ve tried different risers and different cards, but it’s just that nothing plugged into that slot will show up at all. All the 1x slots work fine. Is there a BIOS setting I’m missing or something?

  • mack

    How can you setup the ethminer for windows?

  • Sim

    Hello Ciprian,
    Is the SSD 120GB enough for Eth wallet software ?
    My 120GB is full of transactions (0GB free) and I can’t run it again!
    Thanks for reply

    • hi, nope.. currently therr are like 90gb so I’ll recommend a 480gb add or a bigger sshd

      • Sim

        Ciprian, I’ve deleted the “C:Users…AppDataRoamingEthereumgeth” and then restarted the Eth.Wallet.
        Now the archive is only about 35GB!
        This can be a workaround πŸ˜‰

  • Jason Dela Cruz

    DaggerHashimoto (ethminer) 171 Mh/s = 0.0537372 BTC/Day

    does this mean 1BTC in 20 days?

  • Pedro

    DaggerHashimoto is impossible to make 0.05 BTC/day

    • Ozzy

      it’s 0.05/month, not day

  • JesΓΊs Betancourt

    Hello Ciprian, do you know which criptocoins can I mining with an Antminer L3+..

    • Anything runs Scrypt algorithm πŸ™‚

      • John Rebuttal

        how much did u do in the last 2 weeks with that rig, in bitcoins

      • JesΓΊs Betancourt

        Many thanks for your reply.. have a nice day.

  • Enzo Zisa

    i not understand, how is possible mining btc at 189 Mh/s and earning 14$ for day. have inserted this value to wattomine calculator and is impossible! to mining good is important to calculate Gh/s not Mh/s!!!

  • bad sed

    How much it cost ?! all the rig !
