Description

I built this about a week ago to mine litecoins. It uses about ~1000 watts of power. With I get about .7 litecoins per day at today's difficultly. The 6950 on the right has an aftermarket cooler because I broke some fan blades on the original by accident.

at 1000watt's, I'm assuming you're not making much profit.

All the "mining" of "coins"... Lite, Bit, (or whatever they may want to call it) all falls under the general name of "cryptocurrency". If any of you are wondering why the high end Radeon cards were out of stock all the time with jacked up prices... the cryptocurrency miners created a huge demand, that the card vendors had a hard time supplying. Just out of curiosity shells45, approximately how much is the .7 litecoins worth that you mine each day? I have been curious about the whole idea & thought about getting into it, but I really have no idea where to begin.

It depends on the price of LTC. I make 15-25 dollars per day.

Well how would one decide what "coin" system to get involved with? Basically... what "coin" system will be more profitable, or promising for the future?

At this point with GPUs at the price they are it would take a long time to make your money back. The Bitcoin/Litecoin market is very volatile right now. Setting up the rig is not that hard. Google Litecoin profit calculator if you are interested. Make sure you really understand how the whole system works before you invest.

This just looks awesome. I like the whole 4 way crossfire setup. Is that in a garage or of some sort? Crack the garage door a bit and get some nicer cooling possibly?

Or you could have always bought reference cards and used your garage as a sauna and call it "litecoin spa", and make profit off of that, too.

Nonetheless +1 just like the mini powerhouse.

What is litecoin? I keep hearing about it and it apparently has brought the price of the 280x by 100$...

It's a bitcoin derivative that people mine with AMD gpus. I got these right before all the prices went up.

So bitcoin is affecting the prices of GPUs because people use them for mining? That sucks...

What's the advantage of using litecoin or bitcoin over normal cash, it seems like there isn't much that you can buy or do with them.

paper burns at 451 F. Nothing on the card is that hot :). The motherboard is also sitting on a cardboard box :)
