I'll conclude my cryptominer series with a "bonus" installment.
This is Part 4 in a series on building a cryptocurrency mining rig.
- Overclock GPUs to increase the mining hashrate
- Decrease power consumption
- Increase overall hardware utilization
Before discussing optimizations, let's review the baseline benchmarks.
This is Part 3 in a series on building a cryptocurrency mining rig.
This is Part 2 in a series on building a cryptocurrency mining rig.
In Part 1, I designed and built a custom miner chassis. In Part 2, I'll discuss how I resolved some BIOS-related issues that I encountered.
When Ethereum exploded in popularity (and value) in Summer of 2017, I decided to educate myself about cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. As part of that process, I built an Ethereum (Classic) mining rig.
Here I'll discuss how I designed and built my miner, focusing primarily on the construction of the chassis using OpenBeam, Fusion 360, and a Shapeoko 3. (Later, I'll discuss BIOS configuration in Part 2, mining strategy optimization in Part 3, and compute performance optimization in Part 4.)
