Setup & Let's Start Mining

 

I wanted to get this article out before Christmas, so I've done absolutely no customization to the graphics cards in the form of modding BIOSes and overclocking. All I've done is cranked the fans up to 100% and let it ride.

I couldn't secure 8 x SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ graphics cards and had to substitute two of them for GIGABYTE cards that have crappy VRAM that doesn't push 25MH/s out of the box. Damn.

 

 

Still, we're looking at 180MH/s without optimization and just 1300W of power draw (without any adjustment to power settings just yet). That will begin when I've got more time to pump into configuring this beast.
