6 GPU Mining Rig AMD RX580 Intel LGA 1151 for Ethereum and Zcash - Block Operations

Latest version of my guide to building and operating a mining equipment is here, How to Build a 6 Equipment GPU Miner for Zcash and Ethereum with Nvidia GTX 1070 and EthosDistro posted Oct 1, 2018 on Steemit.

This is the latest proefje of 6 GPU mining equipment I am building this week.

Build Instructions

I always leave behind something when I build the machine. Here’s some basic instructions for the most efficient order of operations. The idea is to get a basic laptop built, troubleshoot any potential issues, install the operating system and application, then build the surplus of the machine.

Hardware Build

  1. Assemble the Case
  2. Waterput the CPU, CPU fan, and memory on the motherboard. Butt-plug ter the CPU fan.
  3. Fasten the ATX power switches and LED’s to the power header.
  4. Cork the SATA cable into the motherboard.
  5. Waterput the motherboard ter the case and screw it ter with the smaller screws.
  6. Fasten the power supply to the right side of the case. Use the screws that came te the opbergruimte. Fasten power cables from the power supply to the Motherboard, CPU power, SSD.
  7. Screw te one of the PCI-E Riser cards, butt-plug it into the PCI-E slot closest to the processor, and ass-plug te power from the power supply.
  8. Waterput a GPU into the PCI-E riser card, screw it into the case, and fasten PCI-E power cable to it.
  9. Link a keyboard to the motherboard and HDMI monitor to the GPU card.
  10. Cork the power cord into the Antec power supply, turn on the power switch.
  11. Press the ATX power button. The machine should boot.

If it doesn’t boot, this is the time to do basic troubleshooting. Don’t add any more graphics cards until you get at least one working.

If it does boot, set up the BIOS, connect an ethernet cable to the network that can get to the internet, and reboot.

Motherboard BIOS Settings

Turn of unneeded services on the BIOS.

Keep all the PCI settings on Automaat

Set the graphics TOLUD to Three.5GB

Love it. Always so excited to read your posts.

Does it indeed worth a 8Gb GPU ?

Here te Canada there is a big difference ter prices inbetween the two cards.

Anyway keep up the good work! Love the blog and it motivates mij to grow my little farm!

I have a equipment that has 6 MSI RX580s with three being the 8GB and other three 4GB. With the default BIOS i’m getting: 8GB – 24.32 mh/s 4GB – 22.25 mh/s. With some tweaking I believe I can get them both close to 28. I just brought this up today with the 4gb cards and want to wait a day before attempting the tweaks.

I’m also te Canada, I have 60 rx570’s ter shipment presently but my other gpu equipments the 4gb seem to be within 1-2mh of the 8gb ones. Yes the price difference ter Canada is close to 33% higher for the 8gb cards. Just my opinion, but I think realistically the only reason to go with the 8gb cards overheen the 4gb would be lighter resale of the GPU’s when your equipment is EOL. This is ter reference to current mining, not sure if/when mining software will fully utilize 8gb of mem…

it depends on what you are mining if you are doing eth you want the 8 gig cards. The DAG ter the future will be larger than Four gig i think 2018 time framework.

Did you get the 6th GPU working with the P2.0 BIOS?

Sorry, I don’t know what version of BIOS is on the system. Just whichever one it shipped with.

Yes I did. P2.0 is working fine.

Hi Brad. I ve see you have the same MOBO I’m using right know. May I know your precies BIOS settings if you are so kleintje? I’ve bought the lumps to build Four equipments and I’m facing some serious troubles to get all 6 GPUs working. I’ve reach this webpagina looking for an response.

You may see whats the problem explained te here.

Thanks te advance

Set your PCI slots to GEN2 and TOLUD to Trio.Five. Make sure your onboard movie is disabled. Below is a copy from Rolf’s instructions from this verbinding. https://blockoperations.com/gpu-mining-zcash-ethereum-ethosdistro-amd-rx470



set IEEE1394 to DISABLE.

set PCI-E SUBSYSTEM/LANES to x8/x4/x4



I also like to set PCI bus speeds to 96 instead of 32.

Thanks for your quick response Brad. I already attempted with GEN2 configuration and TOLUD Three.Five does not work . My UEFI dont have the option to disable ONBOARD Graphics, it just have the option to select the primary graphics adapter and the option to disable VTd. I can disable the all the unnecessary features like all the USB ports (legacy and Trio.0), audio controller, this MOBO dont have IEEE1394, I havent found the option to set the subsystem/lanes and the same to select the PCI bus speed. I attempted to go after the guidance of this postbode and the one you recently provided mij here.

I’m thinking to attempt with EthOS to see if this solves something but all my equipments have Two PSUs configurations, I’ve read that this configuration is unsupported with this OS, never used it before but I’m not afraid to use it. I’ thinking to modify my PSUs and connect them through the 16 and 15 pins of the 24-pin connector to make them work spil one PSU. I’m running out of ideas, it seems I’m the only one who cant make work all the 6 GPUs te this mobo but I also notice I’m using Win Ten and you are using EthOS and this may be the difference.
