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!

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
