Combining GPU’s in your rig is the best way to achieve high hashrates and so having multiple cards on your miner is preferred. You don’t have to fill all the slots of your motherboard right away though. You can start with only one or two cards and upgrade your rig as you go.
In this part of the tutorial, we will go over, step-by-step, how to put together all of the components that make up an effective GPU mining rig. In the first part, we discussed various mining hardware, the pros, and cons of each and some great tips and resources for getting started.
Hardware is an inherent part of cryptocurrency mining – the stronger system specifications you have, the higher your hashrate and therefore chances for block solving are. That’s why it so important for both solo and pool-involved miners to check out the latest hardware news – both ASICs and CPU/GPU.
Have you been experimenting with mining and are ready to take it to the next level? Maybe you’ve been mining with a laptop or desktop CPU or maybe you are completely new to mining. Either way, this tutorial will show you, step-by-step how to build, configure, and maintain an effective and profitable mining rig.
CPU is a Central Processing Unit while GPU – Graphics Processing Unit. CPU is better used for mining low difficulty cryptocurrencies, for instance, Cryptonight protocol coins, like XMR (Monero) or BCN (Bytecoin). GPU can literally mine any coin available in the market, but the profit will depend on a variety of factors.
When you choose a mining GPU you should always take into account the memory offered by the GPU as well as your energy needs and costs. Try to mitigate your initial costs to maximize your profits and start making your initial investment as soon as possible.
Cryptocurrency is one of the shortest ways to increase your capital drastically, though it is associated with great risks. The most popular and the first mined crypto is Bitcoin (BTC). It was the first and stays the first of all coins.
Decisions, decisions. Now that you’ve decided to get into cryptocurrency mining and chosen your preference of currency, the next step would be to pick a good enough GPU to help you accelerate your computer’s performance and solve each hash as fast as you can.
So you have an amazing gaming PC that you aren’t using as much as you thought you would? Maybe you want to build or upgrade a gaming PC, but you’re concerned about the rising cost of graphics card? Perhaps you’ve heard about mining cryptocurrency with a GPU?
2018 is the year of disillusionment and understanding for all those new to cryptocurrency. There is a lot to love in this new financial paradigm. We have finally learned to use this new shared monetary system and far from leaving it, we are in fact adopting it rapidly. It is only a matter of time […]
