6 GPU Nvidia 1070 Mining Equipment, CRYPTO MINING RESOURCE CENTER
Today I present to you the latest te the equipment family, the 6 GPU 1070 mining equipment. Spil usual, wij have a cheap, efficient and portable equipment rack. I’m sure this will rente many people due to the fact that AMD GPU’s are now fairly expensive and still hard to find. People are buying millions of them. Millions. When history repeats itself (and it will), I will be buying them off ebay for insanely cheap prices. Nvidia high end cards, on the other forearm, can mine numerous algos much better and will most likely have a better resale value. Moving on !
Ter this system wij have the following components (or similar, buy what is on sale for ge price/quality) :
Skylake CPU (example) : Intel G3900
Z170-E ASUS 6 GPU motherboard (go with what is available)
DDR4 RAM : Corsair 2x4GB
USB Risers : There are many models, with 6-Pin, SATA and molex connectors.
SSD : Sandisk 120gb
PSU : EVGA 1000GQ
EVGA 1070, consider what is available at the best price. 1080/1080ti can work also but you may not be able to have 6.
Win10 works well (enable win10 mode ter bios, install, then turn off), reminisce to disable all the nonsense and updates and to create a power profile that doesnt turn your stuff off. For other software you can get MSI afterburner, EWBF for ZCash, ccminer/excavator by nicehash or other for different algos.
Building an Nvidia equipment is so much simpler and lighter. The overall system is much more stable too. There is literally nothing else to do. Your GPU’s should be detected, if you set PCIE to gen1 and above 4g enabled ter the bios (if available). There may be other options depending on your motherboard. Here are some results for the most profitable algorithms (power usage is for overall system, from the wall with wattmeter) :
- ZCash (380 to 435 sol/s). Mem -502, core +135.
- 65% tdp : 700w
- 75% tdp: 800w
- 90% tdp: 950w
You results may vary depending on core and memory clocks. It is more efficient to run at a lower TDP.

If you have miner specific questions, it is best to go to the bitcointalk thread and read up on it there, and ask your question there. Other than that, i’ll be glad to help, glad mining !
I’m lovin your equipments and your posts! I’m presently also building a 6*gtx1070 equipment too but with MSI Gaming X cards which have 6+8 speld connectors (not just 8-pin) and I’m confused about connecting the equipment.
I’m confused whether I should:
1) connect the gpu to riser>,riser USB to pcie>,connect gpu via sata to psu spil the standard way or,
Two) connect gpu to riser and riser to pcie, then connect gpu (6+8 pins) to 8pin on psu?
Te both cases can I use normal risers or powered risers?
Thank you te advance!
Hi Michael and thanks for the comment. Okay, so the GPU to PSU and the usb riser to PSU are different and seperate things. To power your stuff,
Step 1: Gpu power: Connect the VGA 8 speld cable to the PSU, and the other end (8+6pin) to the GPU. Now all your cables may not have this configuration, I dont advise using adapters. Email the manufacturer to ask if its okay to just use the 8 speld and no 6 speld, or what is the safe way to have an adapter. Now your GPU has power. Wij havent touched the riser yet.
Step Two: I advise only to use a USB riser, not the old ribbon types. Connect the usb part (on the motherboard be careful to insert it the juist orientation. You will find the keurig orientation by inserting it te a x1 slot, which cannot be inserted the wrong way). Now depending on the proefje of your usb riser, connect it to the PSU. Molex multiplicity, to molex. Sata to sata and 6 speld to 6 speld. Now you may need adapters – so – Molex – adapter – Sata. and 6 speld – adapter – Sata. Do not connect more than Two vanaf SATA/molex Cable. So if you have 6 cards, and all molex usb risers it will look like this: Two GPU connected to the molex string, Two GPU connected with adapters to one SATA string, Two GPU connected to a different SATA string. Or if you have more cables, just use them all.
Hope that clears things up a bit !
Thank you for the detailed clarifications, it truly making mij understand now! However does this mean I would need on the psu: Three*6 speld for sata(each with Two cards), 6*8pin+6pin(or 8 speld) for gpu, ter addition to 1*24 speld for motherboard, 1*6pin for SSD, and one for CPU.
I presently have a corsair hx1000i, do you think the ports would be enough or another psu is required?
Thank you for your help!
Lets see…So yeah you need the 24 speld motherboard, the Four+Four speld CPU that goes on the motherboard too. You have Trio strings of sata and also Trio strings of molex according to hx1000i specs, so no problem them. You also have 8 pcie connectors. Now thesis are all 6+2pin + 6+2pin (nice psu by the way), so Four total. Since you need a 6+8 speld vanaf GPU, you can only waterput Four. There may be work arounds but I won’t suggest them because they may harm your gear. You could always use Two PSU’s with an add2psu adapter thing. (2nd PSU just for 6+8pin on GPU). Good luck !
Did you actually accomplish this on the z170-E you linked or wasgoed it another houtvezelplaat?
Yup, the 6X1070 build is on the ASUS Z170-E houtvezelplaat. I usually tell people to buy whats on sale however, most boards will work fine with nvidia. This wasgoed also with a skylake CPU, not a kaby lake. I’m pretty sure it also works but I cannot say spil I havent attempted it yet and skylake wasgoed cheaper to buy.
hi admin,very first thanks for sharing all this informatie.
i already purchased ryzen 1700x for my productivity work.Now i m programma to run 6 1070s on that.
i wasgoed looking to buy “Asus PRIME X370” mobo and it says:
Two x PCIe Three.0/Two.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8)
1 x PCIe Two.0 x16 (max at x4 mode) *****
NOTE:***** PCIeX16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIeX1_1 and PCIeX1_3. *****
To mij it looks like if i am using “1x PCIe Two.0 x16” then Two slots out of “3x PCIe Two.0 x1” are going to be unavailable cause they share bandwidth.Which also means i can leave this “1x PCIe Two.0 x16” empty and use those all Three slots of “3x PCIe Two.0 x1” and have total of Five gpus instead of having just Four. And 6 gpus is unlikely on this mobo.
so am i right or wrong. plz help.And suggest mij if there is any other amd mobo with 6 gpu conformed support.
Hi Sartaj, I have not tested the x370, so I can’t say if it works or not. You can also purchase an adapter for the M2 slot, maybe that can work. I know biostar has TA320 and TA350 6 gpu models that work well. I’m guessing here but, the PCIe sharing means that its x16, but if you use the x1 slot also, the max you can get is x8 or x4 speed maybe for the x16 slot. I know my Z77 motherboard has Two x16 slots, but if you use both, they are x8 each max. Ter any case you can gamble and get this motherboard, or search for others. When you find one google bitcointalk + motherboard name and see if people have attempted with it. Good luck !
i eyed this and determined to go with it:
i have two question:
1.can i use “ASUS STRIX Z270E-GAMING” instead of “PRIME Z270-A” and expect same number of gpu connectivity? i checked their spec on sus and they look exactly same boards, while Z270E-GAMING have some toegevoegd gaming oriented features.
Two.For my 8 1070 ,I wasgoed programma to buy Cooler master V1200 ( 1) or Cooler master V850 ( Two).But thesis both combinations only support 6 gps at max.Cause te both cases i get 12 pcie connectors,which means 6+2pin + 6+2pin and total 6 gpus.
But spil wij knw 1070s only need single 6+2pin,Is its safe if i connect the other on to th 2nd gpu,i mean 2gps connected with single pcie slot on psu with a single cable.
I can buy Two psus ,but going for more than 850w for Two psus is truly out of my budget.Even 850w+1000w combination supports 7 gpus.Where i live only Corsair,Cooler master and seasonic(sometimes) available.
Please suggest mij some idea or workaround.
If no , then please suggest mij some workaround.
Sure, ok so for 1 It should be okay, albeit I havent attempted that particular houtvezelplaat. For Two, Two PSU’s you would need an adapter for the 2nd PSU, like (http://www.add2psu.com/) to be safe. Its possible to do it without using that, but people have fried motherboards. Only use the 6+Two pins on the 2nd PSU te that case. You can connect Two GPU’s with one dual 6+Two speld wire, just check that your wire doesnt get too hot. Check the specs for the wire, its better not to, but you can do it. If you mine ETH and use 100w vanaf card it should be okay. Attempt to find a PSU with at least Four PCIE VGA connectors, and get two of those. It may be cheaper to do a Five GPU equipment too, because you can buy a cheaper PSU. It depends on what you can buy. Good luck, hope I answered your questions.
ya u answered my question very well.So Thanks Thanks and Thanks
And one last thing,if i build 8gpu equipment i will have to pay(te usd,according to current prices of where i live)
1070 “MINI” (only available thing) –- $610*8=$4880
board–186 (ASUS STRIX Z270E-GAMING)
psu –388 (Two*850w cooler mater v series)
total–$5622 (tax incl,shipping toegevoegd)
1.Spil bitcoin + other crypto’s prices are going down, IS ITS A GOOD IDEA TO INVEST THIS AMOUNT Ter
MINNING Equipment?AND ya i know my roi is going to be indeed long, wanna attempt it but dont wanna go te loss.JUST YOUR ADVICE OR OPINION.SO?
Two.I already have a 1080ti.Can i just make a 7*1070s + 1*1080ti equipment?I mean IS its going to be possible to
set their clocks and memories independently?
For number Two, ter windows with msi afterburner you can set TDP, clocks, independently no problem. You can mix 1070, 1080ti, no problem. For number 1…that is expensive. The big part is the GPU price of course, the surplus is normal, except PSU – but this is because you are doing 8 GPU’s. It may make more sense to build a Four, Five or 6 GPU equipment. Or maybe not. Crunch the numbers and see the $/hash ratio. My opinion is that 610usd for a 1070 is too expensive. To mine or not to mine has always bot a question since the beginnings. It depends, on equipment price, on tens unit price, warmth, etc. It might be best to wait and buy cheap gear, but then you may wait a long time…If 6k is a loterijlot of money for you (it is for mij), then maybe you should not because ROI could take a year, yes. I always recommend to mine with your gaming laptop, waterput Two or Three GPU’s ter there, and have that make money. Then you take the profits, and upgrade your mining operation spil you go. Good luck, and its also good to sleep on it a few days to think it overheen.
thanks i will go after ur advice and For Your Information ” ur the best boy on internet i everzwijn met”.
Will u advice Cloud Mining.
Genesis Bitcoin Mining:
$1950 + $Five(vanaf day maintenance toverfee) = 15 TH/s or 15000 GH/s.
HashFlare litecoin (SCRYPT) mining:
$1350 + $1(vanaf day maintenance toverfee) = 100 MH/s.
Lifetime contract** spil far spil mining remains profitable
Thanks for the zuigeling words sartaj, I just like to help people out I do not advice cloud mining, but genesis mining is one of the legit places. There is also bitmain who has cloud mining. You can compare to Nicehash rental services also. The lifetime thing is not truly good, spil difficulty and technological improvements render the gear worthless after a while
I am building a 2-3 GTX 1070 mining equipment. My main question is this,
1) Can I use numerous branded 1070s? Spil it is unlikely to buy 4-6 of a single branded card from ONE webstek online ANYWHERE Te THE US.
Two)Once I have 2-3 1070 (maybe Two the same or all Three), what benefits is there to acquiring solar panels, perhaps one to power each GPU and one smaller one to power the surplus? (Let’s assume the cost to mij for the actual panels is 0)
Trio)What zuigeling of margins am I looking at if the price of btc or eth remains relatively stable? 3a)best case and worst case screenplays (assuming the price does not druppel drastically, max halves te price) ter terms of profit?
Hey Pablo, to reaction your questions : 1: Yes you can mix different brands, it doesnt matter. You can mix 1070s, 1080, etc, even mix nvidia with amd with zindelijk drivers (albeit that may be tricky). If using windows, use msi afterburner to tune your cards for max vertoning/minus power usage.
Two: Solar panels is a truly interesting idea, but its not effortless to do. I suggest checking out this thread : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1369207.0 to begin.
Trio: Well, best case script, btc increases. worst case script, btc drops. Difficulty is always enlargening spil more people mine. If you use the fever to warm the house te winter thats good too. ROI wasgoed Two months, now its more 5-6 months, maybe more. Before ETH ROI wasgoed 7-8 months effortless. Things switch swift and coins switch also. No one can predict what will toebijten ! Good luck
edit: its good to buy hardware thats not too expensive (I mean, overpriced).
dude can u help mij
im having proble with my 1070 gpu it seems dont work that it vereiste be
on eth it only Five/6 mh/s way down that 1070 supposed sadly it way than mu 1050 ti too.
can u help mij dude
i use claymore for my minjng, that 1070 rate run with eth mining alone on claymore also on dual mining with decred with claymore.
i have attempted that 1070 running alone on my mobo the result still same. Dual mining using pcie riser with my rise have same result too.
already attempted changer driver for gpu still same result.
can u help mij dude
despairingly need help here.
Hi kev, attempt plugging a monitor into the GPU and doing an off/on on the equipment. If thats the problem then you may need to have a monitor plugged te on it (you can attempt unplugging it, it should still work) or buy a “dummy plug” for the GPU. You can check te MSI afterburner or GPU-Z if your 1070 shows decent core clocks and sensors. Attempt mining ZEC with claymore also see if its just ETH maybe. If you run windows Ten make sure you have the latest updates/creator updates and when you reinstall drivers, use DDU and install different/older drivers. So 378.xx instead of 382.xx for example. If it doesnt you may need to RMA it. Good luck !
