Nvidia Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming Mining Rig Tutorial

Ledger Wallet protects your bitcoins

Hey 🙂 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!

To receive the latest updates follow me on social media! 🙂

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

To receive the latest updates follow me on social media! 🙂

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

Here are my tests with this rig

    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 😉

        • #Xb0xmod

          yeah it’s 0.05 ETH per day

          • David Bueno

            today with 171mh/s it would be different! 0.002950 BTC/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! 🙂 Daily profit with this 10USD. It worths its price! 😀

  • 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 🙂

    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 🙂

    Thank you in advance.

  • 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 😉

  • 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

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

    • Anything runs Scrypt algorithm 🙂

      • John Rebuttal

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

      • Jesús 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!!!

    • Hey, check screenshots for better deference.. my calculation can be wrong.. ill recheck that..

  • bad sed

    How much it cost ?! all the rig !

  • Kiusa Diakusen


    Can i build this mining rig with 1000w evga platinum instead of 2 x psus? Is it going to be safe and stable?

    Thank you,

    • Ill recommend 1200w / 1300w

      • Kiusa Diakusen

        Thank you very much for your prompt response. I changed just went to the store and changed my evga 1000 platinum to evga 1300 gold….being gold is that much of a difference? i mean more unstable/more power consumption…thanks again!

  • Ivan Asenov

    I have a rig with Motherboard ASROCK h81 PRO BTC r2.0 and 6 cards PALIT GEGORCE GTX 1070 DUAL 8GB. I have a ptoblem with the hrate. It’s too low- 2,3MH/s for each card. How it’s posible to increase the hrate and fix this problem?

    Thank you

  • Phil

    I’m looking for some guidance…I have about roughly £800 to spend on graphics cards.

    I could get:

    4x rx580 8gb pulse £222 each (on pre-order with amazon, who knows when they will arrive)
    3x Zotac GTX 1060 AMP 6GB £249 each
    2x Zotac GTX 1070 Mini 8GB £349 each
    2x Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition £374 each

    I’m concerned about DAG rate decreases with the RX 580 but will probably give good bang for buck. I feel the nvidia has more longevity.

    What would you go for?

    Thanks! I’m struggling to make a decision.

  • PC Pdx

    I cant get the sixth GPU to be picked up on Claymore but they all show just like the picture you have where the last one has a Yellow triangle with “!” in it. when I look in at it it says “the device cannot find enough free resources code 12”

    I have tried everything for the last 5 days and cant get the last card working with clay more dual miner.

    Thanks for any help!

    • PC Pdx

      NVM I have found out the issue if you are having same issue go here and follow additional instructions that is specific to this motherboard Gigabyte H110 – D3A

      Worked right after Bios update didnt even need to reinstall windows.

  • Cryptobbott

    Did you have enough 8 pin PCI-e connections from the PSUs? From the descriptions it looks seems like only 4 total.

    • Charlie Barnes

      2 of them look piggy backed

  • Ahmed Samir

    Hi, i want to build a rig like this 6 GTX 1080TI and 2 PSU ( 1000 Watt & 850 Watt ) and according to NiceHash 1 gpu card should make me 116.69$ per month means (116.69$ x 6 gpu = 700$ a month) so is this better or buy 2 AntMiner S9 according to NiceHash it should make me 610$ so for 2 will be 1220$ a month … i really need your opinion on this .. thanks in advance PS: for me the cost of buying any of this 2 option is very close

  • Cripsii k

    how do you manage the PSU distribution?

    Is it better to power all the riser + mobo + 1-2 GPU with PSU1 and 4-5 GPU with PSU2?
    or power 3 riser + 3GPU + mobo with PSU 1 and 3 riser + 3 GPU with psu 2?

    I read some article who advice to power all the riser with the same psu of modo?

    Thx !

  • MineErr

    Hi @ciprianpt:disqus @everyone, do you guys know how to fix the code 12 issues on this build? I’ve been trying to fix it but I failed. It can detect all 6 GPUs under device manager but the 6th has the code 12 sign.

    GPU: Gigabyte gtx 1070 G1
    PSU: 1300watt
    MoBo: GIGABYTE GA-H110-D3A
    Ram: 4GB

    • Hey @mineerr:disqus , yes i fixed the problem by doing this:

      1. Change “Max Link Speed” setting from “Auto” to “Gen2”(M.I.T / Miscellaneous Settings / Max Link Speed)
      2. Change “Initial Display Output” setting from “PCIe 1 Slot” to “IGFX” (Peripherals)
      3. Change “Above 4G Decoding” setting from “Disabled” to “Enabled” (Peripherals) (if needed)
      4. Change “Internal Graphics” setting from “Auto” to “Enabled”(Chipset)

      • MineErr

        I did that but it wont proceed to windows. Instead it always boot up to bios settings. I’m using windows 10.

        Edit: I put Mining mode to disabled. AND IT FCK*** WORKS! I freakin love you man. lol

      • MineErr

        @ciprianpt:disqus is there any difference in mhs if you use 2133MHz vs 2400MHz ram?

        • Nope, memory ram doesn’t have anything to do with mining speed

  • Andrea Guerrini

    Hi. thank you for your great article.
    Just a question: why ddr4 2400MHz when cpu support just 2133MHZ?

    Thank you so much.

  • MineErr

    Hi @ciprianpt:disqus , @everyone, I do have closed mining rig case. The far left gpu is acting weird. Even I dont OC it + power limit 70, the temperature is hotter than every other gpus OCed. Is there a way to fix it?

  • Jason Worthington

    Hi there, following your awesome guide, nice work on choosing the psu’s and motherboard. A question though, I am going to use the gigabyte h110 mobo and i was wondering if anybody knows for sure if that board can handle a 7th gpu via the m2 slot?

  • MineErr

    Hello @everyone @ciprianpt:disqus , what’s your take on this? Ethermining reddit’s wiki said dont use 4-pin molex to sata adapter when you are using ver.006 risers. I did, my rig running alright so far. lol

    • I always avoided to power risers via sata, but i waws forced to do it with several rigs which runs just fine. I guess its all about the cables quality and how those were manufactured. I personally prefer the 006 version with 4pin / molex so it can be powered directly from PSU cables.

      Also 006c is a good one, but you will need lots of PCIe cables, i made a rig with 2x PSU that had 3×2 pcie cables each and i was able to power 1 GPU and 1 riser with 1×2 (two heads) PCIe cable

      • MineErr

        what do you mean you will need lots of PCIe cables? is it because there is no 3 heads 6-pin pcie right?

        • you need 6x pcie cables with 2 heads, not 3.. oh wait waht gpus do you have ? 1070 ?

  • wadda

    and how you get money, i dont get it..

  • Abbie Susanto

    can i get the bios setting for h110 d3a ?
    i try to add second gpu but it wont recognize on the system 🙁

    thank you

    • hi @abbie_susanto:disqus , have you checked here: ?

      With the last rig i used BIOS Version F21 and i did the following:

      Change “Max Link Speed” setting from “Auto” to “Gen2”(M.I.T / Miscellaneous Settings / Max Link Speed)
      Change “Initial Display Output” setting from “PCIe 1 Slot” to “IGFX” (Peripherals)
      Change “Above 4G Decoding” setting from “Disabled” to “Enabled” (Peripherals) (if needed)
      Change “Internal Graphics” setting from “Auto” to “Enabled”(Chipset)

      • Abbie Susanto

        Got it…
        other question
        How i can minnet eth? And where can i get the wallet for eth?
        Is that nicehash better or individual cryto better?

        Many thanks 🙂

    • I didnt tested the mini yet so i cannot tell the exact difference :/

      • Giellie Maritz

        Hello Ciprian, would like to know what vram these cards have? Samsung, Micron or Hynix? Can you check for me in GpuZ please.

  • FJ

    Wouldn’t the G3900 CPU work for both MBs? .. Why the upgrade in CPU?

    • what do you mean ?

      • FJ

        The G3900 CPU works with both Motherboards mentioned. The DDR Memory too .. am I missing performance differences in setup? Why not stay on the cheaper side.
        Performance if different based on the setup is negligible no?

      • FJ

        ??? never heard back from ya .. just wondering if it really matters if you mix and match the CPUs and DDR memories mentioned in this article between MBs ..

  • Giellie Maritz

    Hello Guys, would like to know what vram these cards have? Samsung, Micron or Hynix?

    • I had Samsung and Micron only.. nothing Hynix yet..

  • Christopher Ng

    I’m having a problem when mining with 6 GPUs and there will be 1 or 2 random GPUs with low GPU usage which results in low hashrates for those specific GPUs. Is there anyone else with this problem?

    • try using lower mem clocks for those..

      • Christopher Ng

        They are all still on Stock Clocks. I haven’t OC’ed them yet.

  • Thank you for all the write-ups you do on this site, I’ve learned so much in the last couple of days, just by staying on your site. I am assembling a rig with 6 x ASUS ROG GTX 1070, some OC, some standard, with a H110-D3A mobo, based on the info I gathered here.

    NOOB ALERT: Now I have a question: it appears as if you are connecting the GPUs to power (PCI-E labeled 8-pin molex power plugs) and also the riser cards (through 6-pin molex to SATA type connectors). Am I seeing this right and is this how it should be done? How does this work? Or, why is this necessary?

    For the riser power, can I daisy-chain 1 SATA PSU connection to 3 cards, as the cables supplied with the EVGA PSUs lead me to believe? I have 2 x 750W PSUs so I could nicely distribute that over 6 GPU cards. I think. It’s all very new for me.

    Then — if the GPUs need separate power — do I use the EVGA supplied 8-pin molex VGA to VGA connectors? I’m totally confuddled in the computer hardware department. Last time I assembled a computer from components was in the CP/M heydays. You can call me gramps. 😉

    Thank you for listening, all and everyone.

    • BTW, this is my frame, made in 18x18mm wood, all glued together with a PU wood adhesive, cobbled together on a supplies-forsaken Greek island. Strong as a tank 😛

    • Depends what Riser version you have, in my case i have the 007 version powered by 6 pin, since i don’t have enough 6 pin cables from psu i had to power them via sata.

      • So, if I understand correctly, it’s an either/or matter? When you power through the risers (I also have ver 007) you don’t need to power through the 8-pin molex connectors on top of the GPU cards? I went ahead and connected both… the risers through a 3 x daisy chained SATA connectors, needs only one outlet at the PSU for 3 boards. So I took one of those supplied SATA cables and connected to each PSU (EVGA 750). And then I connected the 8-pin molex VGA cables in a 1-on-1 fashion to the 2 PSU (3 for each). Is that bad? Seems to work till now… Is it overkill? Rig would look a lot nicer, less cluttered if I could remove the 8-pin molex VGA cables.

        • You will still have to power the GPUs via 8 pin cable, the sata/6pin is just for riser and i recommend to power two risers per cable.

          • Ahhh! I got it now. Thanks for the hint about the risers’ power distribution. I currently have 2 PSU feeds going to each 3 risers. I’ll switch to 3 PSU feeds going to 2 risers each. Thanks again for everything you taught me here.

          • welcome 🙂 any time..

  • Laurynas Šimkus

    I’m planning to built a rig, but i can’t decide which currency I want to mine. Is it still worth to buy RX580 and mine ethereum (or other currencies same algorythm) or buy GTX 1080 and mine these currencies? How do you think? Thanks. 🙂

  • mario

    I followed the manual, and when I do with one grafic card it works, when I put the 6 of them, the fans go tomaximum and it does not mine

    someone can help me?

    • have you increased virtual memory ?

      • mario

        yes i increase virtual memory. but i have the F23a version of the board, should i put yhe f22 version?

        • you can try that too..

          • mario

            I can only put 3 grafics working, when a turn on the 4 grafic, on of the grafic start fun in maxime and dont mine nothing

    Te salut Ciprian,
    Mi-am achizitionat un rig cu 6 placi Gigabyte geforce gtx 1070 g1 gaming 8 gb ddr5,in dual mining la ethereum am 160 mh/s iar la LBC 1580 mh/s. Nu e prea putin?

    • Salut, de obicei GTX-urile nu stau asa bine in dual mining precum RX-urile, dar hashrate-ul tau pe ethereum este mic ar trebui sa fie undeva intre 180 si 190, trebuie sa reglezi din dcri..

  • Hi Ciprian, can you share the best options () for GIGABYTE G1 GTX 1070 and MSI ARMOR OC RX 580?
    Right now here’s my configuration but I encounter error in Claymore 🙁
    Thanks as always

    • If micron memory i can go up to +650!

      • For RX 580 I have modded the BIOS but I cannot overclock it. If I do so I encounter errors in Claymore. What would be the clock settings for MSI RX 580 OC 8gb?

        • What do you mean cannot overclock ?

          • I have modded the BIOS and it’s now at 22 mh/s. Im using MSI Armor OC (Hynix) btw.

            I want to achieve 29 mh/s with lesser power.
            I tried changing the clocks to 1200/2120 but it’s not changing at all.

            What seems to be the problem? Need your help please 🙁

          • can you send the rom ?

  • Nick

    Is there a driver version that you would suggest for the GTX 1070 G1? When I set the clocks to100/700 80% power i get crash. Is it the drivers?

    • Not a driver issue, gpu memory cannot handle that much OC, i guess you have micron memory, if yes ill suggest +650!

    Hey everyone. I’m new to mining and have just built my first rig. I’m using the z270 plus motherboard and 6 1070 ti’s and Evga 1200 psu. I flashed the bios, updated to the newest nvidea deivers and followed all the tweaks yet windows is only recognizing 2 out of the 6 gpu’s in the device manager. Anyone know why this may be happening?

    • Hey @dextersamour:disqus , what do you mean by “I flashed the bios” ?

      • Dexter Samour

        I updated the motherboard to the most recent bios. Is actually went on device manager and was able to get 5 out of the 6 gpu’s to be read by windows. I checked the motherboard and it’s not showing the 6th card. I’m thinking it might be a faulty riser.

    Hello, is the profitability on the 6 cards or on just 1 card?

    Hi, I am looking for get Biostar H81A BTC since I have spare G3258 and DDR3 ram. Did the Biostar motherboard work well with 6 GPU setup?

  • Tim S

    Wondering if Biostar H81a worked with 6 GPUs?

    I feel like you were doing really well until you said “All set, all you have to do now is to start the miner, set the clocks, undervolt and start mining.” Do you have another post which dives into this more?

    Hi Ciprian, I see you connect your fans to an extender, then connect that extender directly to the PSU by molex? Don’t the fans need to be connected to the motherboard for speed control?

    • While connecting to moelx those will go 100% fan speed all the time. But if you want to control you will need a 4 pin splitter

    I had setup my mining rig with just a single card to setup.
    But its just showing GPU0 1.501 Mh/s

    Whats that means… why its too low

    I there is some additional setting…
    Please help

    • Looks like you are doing something wrong.. not really sure. I recommend fresh install.

      • Phaltu Tango

        I had freshly installed everything start from windows…
        now the the speed for eth is 2.6Mhz.
        But for ZCash its produces 430Sol/s

        where I am lacking,
        If some could help we may schedule a TeamViewer session.

        • that’s strange.. can you attach some screenshots ?

    Hi Ciprian. I built my 8 GPU rig using this tutorial but am using the biostar tb250 btc+ mobo. I have no issues with detecting all 8 GPUs. However, when I run the Bitcoin Gold mining software, the last 4 GPUs show abnormal power (white blinking light near the VGA connectors). I can’t get the last 4 GPUs to work; shows 0 sols/s. I’ve tried troubleshooting with each card and all 8 work just fine. I thought it was the PSU but I switched it with the other PSU and got the same issue. I don’t know what else to do. What seems to be the problem?

  • Alexander Mario Sidawi

    Why is this processor recommended over the newer 7/8th gen?

    I️ have the same set up as yours and I️ run my fans at 100 but two fans on different cards have begun to wobble and then stop… if you have faced this problem how do you fix it? Thanks!
