    It has been requested by a few poeple that I share some pics from my mining shitshow. Full disclosure this space is a complete disaster and makes me cringe when I see it. That being said I put all this together for it to make money not look good, and it has made the money. All the rigs are running smOS and mining ZEC or XMR based on the card architecture. I also have a handful of blades mining XMR.

    Blades are M620's running 2660v1 and 8gb of mem each. They are running esxi 6.5 each with a mining VM
    My miners consist of

    40x RX470's
    2x Rx480's
    12x gtx1070
    8x gtx1080

    Can this get moved to the DIY builds section? Looks good! I'd love to read your lessons learned.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    My monthly consumption at the house has been just a hair under 9500KwH

    Yeah you are right, I put this in the wrong section. I saw the DIY and misplaced it.

    I have learned a few things along the way. The biggest definitely being to never underestimate the heat output of this amount of hardware. It adds up much faster than you would think before you start getting into it. Airflow strategy before you even start is MUST, my airflow strategy is a trainwreck and I have not had to to address it. Due to that my house is consistently above 80F even with the AC running 24/7

    My wife thinks I am nuts...but she has always know that sooo... She hasnt minded the whole venture much other than the heat. She is pregnant so a 90F house is not a good time.

    That I do. I have some more ideas just haven't had the time to get the work done. It has started cooling off for the year so it is now heating my house.

    I am always jealous of people who have enough room to have project space at home.

    Agreed... I used to have a huge amount of space, a huge family room, but now after we moved I am stuck in a small bedroom :(

    We bought a house midway through the year and the best part if I have a full 900 sqft of basement for projects/lair.

    That is about the is situation I am in for the moment wife and I bought a house that is large enough that we dont need the space for just the two of us. So the whole basement is mine for the time being. The last family finished it but did a terrible job so I gutted most of it and do whatever I want down there.

    How big are your mining operations?

    Have about 96x 1080TI running right now.

    It depends, 4 months ago it was making 3-5K a month after power. These days my hardware brings in ~$1500 a month after power

    That's still pretty good ROI on ~$30K (guessing) of hardware. Are you mining your own blocks or are you with a pool?
