Building a mining rig is like planting your own money tree and watching it grow daily. In this guide, we have chosen the best equipment’s to build a profitable mining rig for Moneo using AMD cards.
Its the same as building your own computer normally but with a few extra considerations that mainly involve which GPU cards you pick.
Estimated cost: $1500.47
Expected Mining Hashrates
Ethereum/Ethereum Classic/Ubiq/Dubaicoin: 78 Mh/s
ZCash/Hush: 690 Sols/s
Power: 450 Watts
Using this mining rig you can mine Ethereum / Ethereum Classic / Dubaicoin / UBIQ / Musiccoin / Expanse / SOILCoin. AMD cards give the best performance to the algorithm used in these coins.
I am using this rig to mine Monero. Monero is the most profitable coin to mine these days.
To build your profitable mining rig for Monero you are going to need following Equipment.
The Motherboard I am using for this mining rig is ASROCK’S H81 Pro BTC R2.0. The board supports 6 Graphics cards. Having CPU socket of LGA 1150 and support DDR3 RAM.
ASRock H81 Pro BTC R2.0 Available on Amazon
GPU Support: 6 Graphics Cards
CPU Socket: LGA 1150
RAM Socket: DDR3
2. Graphics Card:
The motherboard I mentioned above supports six GPU cards. So buy six of them.
I am using AMD RX 560 GPU cards. Remember AMD GPU cards are best for mining in the CryptoNight algorithm or coins like MONERO, Ethereum, Electronium etc.
AMD Radeon RX 560 4GB Available On Amazon
Ethereum: 13 Mh/s
ZCash: 115 Sols/s
TDP: 75 Watts
3. CPU (Processor):
The above-mentioned motherboard has CPU socket LGA 1150. I am using Intel Celeron G1840 processor for this rig. This processor is cheap and it is the best option for this profitable mining rig.
I recommend using the same. The price is low and we are only using the CPU to keep our mining rig running.
Intel Celeron G1840 Available On Amazon
Max PCI-e lanes 16
4. Storage (SSD):
I always prefer SSD over HDD for mining rig. SSDs are more reliable and faster than HDD. For this mining rig, I am using 120GB Sandisk SDD.
You can buy it from Amazon. You can even use HDD but in my opinion, spending few more buck for SSD is always a better choice.
Kingston A400 120GB Available On Amazon
Read/Write: 500Mb/s – 450Mb/s
Our motherboard supports DDR3 RAM. Buy 4GB DDR3 RAM, buying two at once is better.
We only need 4GB of RAM for the mining rig though. RAM does not affect your mining efficiency. It only depends on the GPU cards you are using.
Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz (2x4GB) Available On Amazon
Module size: 4GB
6. Power Supply Unit:
Choosing a right power supply unit is important. You are going need a 1000 Watt Power supply because this is the best option for this cheap build.
EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 Watt gq 80+ Gold Available On Amazon
Modular: Fully Modular
Sata Connections: 12
Molex Connections: 5
VGA Connections: 6x 6+2-pins, 2x 6-pins
7. Raiser Cards:
The riser cards are used to connect your GPU cards to the motherboard. You need to buy 6 risers for each GPU card.
6-Pack PCIe Dual Chip PCI-E 16x to 1x Powered Riser Adapter Available On Amazon
Riser Version: 006
Connection: MOLEX to SATA
USB Cable Length: 60cm
8. PWR Button:
You will also need Power Buttons to on/off your mining rig.
9. Mining Rig Frame:
You can build your own rig or better to buy directly from Amazon. Using a mining rig frame is important. You mining rig will generate lots of heat during mining.
A mining rig frame will keep your mining rig’s efficiency by controlling enough air flow.
