In Topic: Questions about mining

30 January 2018 - 07:22 AM

So I finally received my hardware. I went with the biostar tb250 motherboard, evga 1080ti gpus, & 1200 psu. I actually have it up & running right now. & I have miner gate setup just to get things going & to kind of give me a starting point. I wanted to use nicehash but for some reason, I couldn't get it to load up properly. That's the only issue with programs I've came across so far. I also for some reason couldn't get the bios to update. I checked the date & it was the 2nd newest update so I moved forward & installed windows & updated the drivers. It's all running but I'm having some trouble figuring out how to overclock & other options in the bios setup to help me boost it more. If you have any more suggestions, I would really appreciate them. Thank you all who did answer positivity, because my son & I are learning a lot.

Thank you all for your comments. That's kinda what I already had in mind. There is just so much I feel to building because I have actually never built one. But I figured this would be a fun project to do with my son plus have a roi. Win/win. I'm thing to start with a evga 1080ti. With a mobo that has 6 slots for GPUs. Plan to buy some more later. So I think I'll start with windows 10 to make it easier. Does anyone have any recommendations for mining software or pools to look for. I've tried ccminer or cgminer. Can't remember which one I used. Also tried nice hash. I like the simplicity of nice hash. Again, thank you for your advice.
