Or just get a new one for that price? MikroTik Cloud Router Switch 326-24G-2S+RM with 800 MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 24xGigabit LAN, 2xSFP+ cages, RouterOS L5 or SwitchOS (dual boot), 1U rackmount case, PSU without SFP licencing limitations :)
I'm too into server stuff for dedicated mining, but I just checked that 2678v3 is around 120W TDP plus the extra draw, so it consumes double the amount of power per hash rate vs Ryzen. Plus the noise.
But if I get a decent setup for dirt cheap, I definitely would try v3's and v4's. Bonus would...
Try giving the GPU passthrough config x-vga=1 (which tells the VM/GPU that the output comes from the monitor)

Also worth mentioning, that I've had issues with GPU passthroughs if the baremetal isn't running on UEFI.
Here's some hints too:
Thanks for the input! I see often full chassis + motherboard setups going lower than the actual motherboard on eBay. Quite clever way to get free chassis if you have the audience for the hardware lol. Paid 240€ incl. shipping for the chassis and x9dri-ln4f+ with dual PSUs (and 1x overpriced 2609...
I got a 2011 setup on my CSE-825 chassis and I'm thinking about replacing these parts and get a H11DSi motherboard to build my Epyc server.

I'm looking for a decent setup for my 1st upcoming Monero mining rig (Dual Epyc etc), but the results I've gathered are based on Google results from 2018-2020 and they vary - a lot! My budget is around 1000-1400€. Patrick's last thread about Monero is from year 2018 and much have changed...

After that, no issues.
Just wondering that...
Dell R7910 - 950€
1x E5-2603v3. Other slot empty. (2 x Heat Sink Included)
32GB ECC (2 x DDR4 2133MHz Hynix 16GB)

Just made an offer of 6 for $55 each and got countered for $60. I instantly accepted. I've had the 100gb and 200gb versions of these and they've been really solid. (and tip to you all that are living in the EU, I'm using MyUS to forward the packages and it works just great).
