Here is the best mining hardware that every miner should have in this days, at least this is what i will choose 🙂
I have selected the best mining hardware such as best gpu for mining that have good mining hashrate and at the same time low watt consumption. This can be achieved only by modding the bios, changing the timings like 1500MHz clock speed is used at 1625, 1750 and 2000MHz and will result in higher transfer speed of data from and to the GPU. Check this tutorial for more details, that’s a great example, note that this is available for AMD RX GPU cards.. Nvidia GPUs run on stock BIOS!
I have also tried to select based on quality, performance and price the best motherboard for mining, best psu for mining, cpu, memory ram, ssd, usb risers, frame and few more useful stuff.
This is the best mining hardware configuration that can be used for a mining rig setup to mine the following coins / altcoins: Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Monero (XMR), Ravencoin (RVN), Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Zclassic (ZCL), Nexus (NXS), Luxcoin (LUX), Purk, PascalCoin (PASC), Decred (DCR), Expanse (EXP), Lbry Credits (LBC), Siacoin (SC), Komodo (KMD), Ubiq (UBQ), Karbowanec (KRB), Bipcoin (BIP), Orbitco (ORB), Zencash (ZEN), Hush (HUSH). Algorithms like Ethash, Equihash, CryptoNight, CrypoNightV7, CryptoNight Heavy, Lyra2RECv2, NeoScrypt, Blake (14r), Pascal etc..
Let’s begin 🙂
Best Mining Hardware

AMD Radeon RX series video cards are one of the best gpu for mining and most used to mine Ethereum, any coin that runs on Ethash algorithm (Ethereum Classic, Ubiq, Expanse, Pirl, Ellaism) and Monero or coins that runs on CryptoNight, CryptoNightV7 algorithms (Electroneum, DigitalNote, ByteCoin, Karbo).
Since with the new RX Vega 56 / 64 released things have changed a bit, everyone want to make a rig with those, those became fast one of the best gpu for mining Monero (CryptoNight, CryptoNightV7). RX Vegas costs twice than RX 580/570 but also the tripled hashrate makes the difference and pays for the price.
6 High Quality Solid Capacitors for reliable and safe power delivery. Version 008S riser kits are the newest and top of the line solution for setting up GPU mining rigs. STABLE and SAFE: 4 Solid Capacitors deliver power to Graphics stably and safely.
60cm USB 3.0 extender cable enabling flexibility in the placement of your PCI-E devices
REDUCE MOTHERBOARD BURDEN: 4PIN, SATA and Graphic card 6PIN interface are optional to power, which provides Graphic card independent power and reduces motherboard burden when using more Graphic cards. WIDELY APPLICABLE: Suitable for all Window systems, LINUX and MAC.
As for the frame ill recommend to do it yourself, is not that hard. If you find the right materials and tools then you will not around 1-2 hours to build it and will const you around $50-$80. Check this tutorial!
But if you don’t want to build one, here are some ready made mining rig frames!

Here are some results of mining hashrate per 1 Sapphire Nitro+ RX 470 4gb OC GPU (modded, overclocked) , note that i did not spent more then 2-3 minutes with each miner, so there may be better hashrate results.
If you get better performance, let me know so i can update.

Total costs (on amazon) is around $3,000 – $4,000, depending on what GPUs, for instante a GTX 1080 Ti Mining Rig can cost up to $9,000. The best price that you can get for a full rig is around $3,500 with RX 580 8GB , if you are going to build the frame then the costs will reduce a bit. If you are from USA/CA, then you are lucky, i think there are the best sales and prices.
Costs updated on April, 30 2018 for one mining rig with 6x Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8GB GPUs!
US/CA: $3,500 (1151)
EU: $3,300 (1151)
