Mining cryptocurrencies is one of the best ways to earn cryptocurrencies. If you are thinking to build your own most profitable mining rig here is the best solution for you under $2400.
This post will guide you through the best Ethereum mining rig hardware to assemble your mining rig. As we are going to build 6 GPU mining rig we will use 6 Graphics Cards. Our main aim to get best Graphics cards that will gives us the best mining hash rates.
While considering mining Ethereum is one of the most popular cryptocurrency for mining. But, why are people investing so much in mining Ethereum?
The main reason is Ethereum is the cryptocurrency which is ASIC resistant, i.e you cannot mine it with any ASIC device. You have to use GPU’s to mine ethereum. I have also mentioned Amazon links using you can you buy the componants for the mining.
Using this mining rig you can mine Ethereum/Ethereum Classic/Ubiq/Dubaicoin/ ZCash / Zcash Classic / Bitcoinz / Bitcoin Gold / Zencash / Hush / Komodo & Monero as well.
6GPU profitable ethereum mining rig build
The components we are going to need are
#1 Graphics Cards
There are lots of graphics cards in the market. Which one is good??
Well don’t worry, I have done some research for you. For building the profitable ethereum mining rig considering the budget we set i.e $2400. I am going to use Zotac GTX 1060. Buy 6 numbers of Graphics card for this mining rig.
Model Number : ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 AMP Edition 6GB
Ethereum: 21-25 Mh/s
ZCash: 300 Sols/s
TDP: 120 Watts
We have chosen an 6GPU support Motherboard. Asrock H81 PRO BTC R2.0. This motherboard supports 6 GPU and you can attach the GPU via RISERS.
Also the motherboard supports DDR4 RAM with Intel Processor having LGA 1151 socket.
The motherboard is the base of your mining rig, everything that you are going to build depends upon your motherboard.
Model No : Asrock H81 Pro BTC R2.0
GPU Support: 6 Graphics Cards
CPU Socket: LGA 1150
RAM Socket: DDR3
We have chosen the cheapest LGA1150 CPU for the Motherboard. Intel celeron is the best choice for mining build. We are building a GPU based mining rig.So, instead of paying more for i7,i5 or i3 celeron will do best.
Model No : Intel Celeron G1840
Max PCI-e lanes 16
We are going to use 120GB of fast SSD storage to get your miner up and running easy and fast. You can even use HDD. But using SSD will save the processing time. And time is money.
Model No : Kingston A400 120GB
Read/Write: 500Mb/s – 450Mb/s
Our Motherboard supports DDR3 RAM. Therefore we are going to use a 4GB DDR3 RAM, buying two at once is always better.
Model No: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz (2x4GB)
Module size: 4GB
#6 Power Supply
The mining rig we are building will consume around 600W to 800W of power supply. We are going for a 1000 watt Power supply because this is the best option for this cheap build. I always preferred to buy more power supply. Choosing a wrong PSU could damage your rig.
Model No: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 Watt gq 80+ Gold
Modular: Fully Modular
Sata Connections: 12
Molex Connections: 5
VGA Connections: 6x 6+2-pins, 2x 6-pins
Risers play important role connecting GPU’s to the motherboard. We will need 8 PCI-E risers card. Buying two extra is always a best buy.
Riser Version: 006
Connection: MOLEX to SATA
USB Cable Length: 60cm
You can build your own frame or buy one straight from amazon.
GPU Support: 6 Graphics Cards
PSU Support: 2
#9 Power Button for the Motherboard
Last but not least . You will also need power button to Turn ON/OFF your mining rig. Remember do not buy them separately. Buying with other components will save shipping charges.
You can always use Windows OS for mining. But using Linux is always a best choice. Linux is Free. My favorite is Ubuntu
This mining rig will cost you around $2299 (Price may vary a little). You can make a profit of $319.49 every month(Approx).
You can also mine other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum Classic/Ubiq/Dubaicoin/Zcash/Monero etc. This rig gives best performance considering the cost.
To gain more profit I always prefer to hold the coins for long term.
Investing in mining rig always is best choice. When you decided to stop mining you can resell those components.
