A heads up to those wanting to use PCIe splitters/switches.
Well, after 129 miner restarts in SMOS I've finally gotten my 8 GPU rig mining stable for 16 hours straight. I'm using Supermicro boards in my operation to have IPMI and limit having to move rigs or monitors around to troubleshoot. Once the kinks are worked out its great! Anyways my board only has 7 PCIe slots so I've been experimenting with splitters to get me to 8 cards. Its been a long road. I started with a couple of those x1 into 4 USB cards which kinda worked if I was running less than 6 total GPUs and no more than 2 cards on each splitter. They are funky. I could run 4 on the board and 2 on the splitter for days but if I added 2 more to the board I had constant crashes. I spent an immense amount of time messing with the PCI gen, MCFG setting (base address for PCI devices) with mixed results. Finally as I gave up yesterday and put 2 cards back in another rig my x16 to 8 USB splitter finally arrived! I threw it in and hooked up 6 GPUs to it and I'll be damned it ran for 30 minutes no problem. I said screw it and grabbed 2 more cards again and had some rejected shares. Switched the slot back to PCI Gen2 and what do you know. Haven't had to reboot yet. Obviously its known your mileage will vary using splitters like this. It won't magically make a 20 year old motherboard support more cards. But if you have a modern-ish board that doesn't have enough slots it may be the ticket. I know people have had luck with those 4 GPU splitters I'm still not sure why they were so unstable for me but hey this works. Only needing one x16 slot to run cards I may just opt for a dual CPU board and do some CPU mining as well if a new CPU only algorithm triumphs over Cryptonight. x1 switch - https://www.amazon.com/LinkStyle-Extender-BitcoinLitecoin-Adapter-Ethereum/dp/B078YQMF7F/ref=sr_1_15?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1521395139&sr=1-15&keywords=x1+to+4+mining+riser x16 switch - https://www.amazon.com/Motherboard-Express-Graphics-Adapter-Machine/dp/B07571T721
[USA-VA] [H] Full PC Build (6600k, GTX 1060 6GB), GTX 1070 FTW. Masterkeys Lite Combo, EVGA 2 Slot SLI Bridge [W] Local Cash, Venmo, Google Wallet, BTC, Trades.
Hey everyone, to begin I have a full PC Build. + Other Parts below.. Your going to hate me but this is the fucking truth I swear. I basically do not need a gaming PC at the moment. And my will to game has faded...but my will for gainz is growing. I have recently found the sub /wallstreetbets and I'm selling all my shit and YOLOing the fuck out. Now now now.. don't hate me just yet. I've been working my ass off and investing my whole life in different shit. My most successful venture thus far has been bitcoin. I'm no god damn bitcoinillionaire but I've been turning it over and helping pay for shit for years. Long story short, then I started saving all my freedom dollars into bitcoin, then I started mining and small term investing. And now I am in it balls deep. My reasoning behind all this is simply, I don't need all this shit if I'm not going to use it right now. And if I don't go broke and do well over time I can buy it all back better next year. Annnnnd if I go nolo broke, well I made a slightly costly bad life decision at 25 and learned some really god damn good life lessons (at least one would hope). So I'm selling all my needless possessions (Except my PS4), lowering my bills and overall cost of living and investing it all...in AMD. (Not all I diversify. but 100% of this PC would go towards it.) My ultimate goal being to invest 1/4 of my income by the end of this year. So without further blabbering... 1. Full PC Build AT THIS TIME I DO NOT WANT TO PART OUT. I Also would prefer not to ship. I also would prefer this to stay local. With that being said, If the before two become unsuccessful I do still have the original boxes for most items and could part it out.

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive. I have a MasterLiquid Maker 92 AIO cooler (which, I've checked, is correctly installed) which I thought would be a nice upgrade over the stock cooler. Unfortunately, for some reason the temps are worse than the stock cooler, which would stay at ~50C on idle. I have also confirmed that there's no malware, bitcoin mining, etc going on in task manager. List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem. See above. Post relevant photos of build/parts here. 1 2 3 4 5 Provide any additional details you wish below. Sometimes it spikes up to 80C.
[Build Ready]I want to see what you guys think before I get invested.
Build Help/Ready: I have many questions because I've been researching quite a bit. This is my first build (not counting an intel when I was a kid or my raspberry pi). Don't feel obligated to answer all the questions, just the ones you want to. My build is here and my questions are down below. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
My biggest concern is if I'm investing enough into the GPU. I will be gaming at 1080 X 1920 at the highest frame rate possible. My CPU will be over-clocked when I'm certain airflow and water-cooling are at the ideal setups. I know this CPU gets very hot and tends to have high power consumption but I think if I manage the temperatures well it could be fun having a more challenging CPU. Any advice on how to handle airflow in this case? I was planning on putting the radiator in the front and relying on the two included fans for exhaust. Is that enough? I'm also a software developer and I rely on labor intensive apps to run constantly, so that's why I went for 16Gb RAM. My work laptop and personal laptop can't handle the load I have right now. I've made three purchases so far: the PSU, HDD, and SSD. I realize now that the Seagate HDD has an extremely high failure rate (I plan on returning it if I can). Do you have a very reliable 4Tb HDD you wouldn't mind suggesting? I also realize that if I want to upgrade to two GPU's I'll be requiring a larger power supply but for my uses, one really good GPU is all I want. I'm not bitcoin mining here. Has anyone have experience building in this particular case? Any nasty surprises like loud rattling or things I need to look out for? PS. I live in Italy and prices are very high here.

''' Hi everyone. I posted the following to the Vertcoin sub earlier and got one reply saying "it does not matter" (my thoughts too) but wonder if it matters at all for Bitcoin mining, or other coins? Here was my question: "...When it comes to mining does the number of lanes for a PCI Express slot actually matter? I would like to fill up all the PCI slots with 1080 cards eventually, and I have found a motherboad that has two PCI x16 slots ans one PCI x1 slot. Is the PCI x1 slot going to be too slow for mining Vertcoin? My hunch is to say no, it won't impact the 1080 hash rate at all, because not a lot of data is being transferred during mining as compared to gaming. But I might be completely wrong on this hunch!

Hi, I'm Cablesaurus. As Reddit has plugged into the Bitcoin world, many here may be wrestling with the complications of securely mounting accumulating graphics cards and mining rig gear; getting all cards to recognize; or how to utilize all possible motherboard slots for Bitcoin purposes to save hardware costs A few things new miners should be aware of:
* PCI Express extenders can be used to greatly increase airflow between your cards * Mounting solutions are available for those strugging to securely mount cards * You can use x1 PCIe slots to power any mining card just as fast as when plugged directly into an x16 slot. Adapters are available for the curious. * PCI to PCI express slot adapters are available for those running out of slots. A PCI slot can be converted to run a mining card at full speed from an extender.
Some of these solutions can save the miner a large wad of cash in startup hardware costs. To find more basic information, check out the Bitcoin forums or visit our site @ www.Cablesaurus.com I'll be glad to help answer any questions Reddit has about the use of such solutions, or just general questions for me! - Feel free to post! Warm regards, Cablesaurus

edit: the build is closer to $1500 USD. It added one part from microcenter(processer), but since I'm in northern california and there are no microcenters around I will be ordering from newegg for $239.99.
