MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1 Review (Page 5)

Final Thoughts

I'm blown away.

I've got 50+ graphics cards in my garage right now on rickety shelves with blistering heat (30C+ outside today and we're heading into a 40C+ heatwave next week) yet the MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1 solves virtually all of my problems.

  • Self-contained unit
  • Supports 8 x GPUs
  • 1600W PSU can power virtually any configuration of cards
  • Windows pre-installed & stripped down to bare essentials
  • Claymore Ethereum miner pre-installed
  • Great cooling (loud, but effective)
  • Less than 5 minutes to set up

I had the entire MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1 set up in less than 5 minutes, which seems ridiculous compared to the many hours it takes to build, set up, configure, install Windows and so on of any other standard PC that you use for mining.

This is the biggest thing here: time. My time is valuable and after the hundreds of hours of deploying mining machines I don't want to spend another 5 hours setting them up individually.

MiningSky has stepped in and completely transformed the way I've been doing mining, and within the first 10 minutes of it being operational the first thought that came to mind was: I need 10 more of these MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1 systems.

I now want to shift my entire mine from those rickety shelves and into MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1 systems, as it is not only more convenient but it is better on the cards cooling-wise. It's near impossible to cool graphics cards on a shelf, but in an enclosed system? Easy.

MiningSky: you've blown me away here with your MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1 system, and for just $900... I have no problems recommending it. It is more expensive than buying the components yourself, but remember that'll include CPU, motherboard, RAM, SSD, case, cooling, and a PSU.

MiningSky gives it all to you with the MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1, with Windows pre-installed and Claymore ready to go. I can't think of any reason why you'd want to save maybe $100-$200 on the required components when you can have this system up and running in 5 minutes.

Blown away, MiningSky - I love the MiningSky 8-GPU Mining Rig V1. It has completely changed the way I look at my mine, and I'm so angry I received this sample four days before Christmas or else I would've been nagging the company for a bunch more of them so I could transition the entire mine.

Amazing work, MiningSky!
