Checkout Nicehash or Awesome miner dude, probably the two easiest places to start literally they are click and go only thing you will need to do is create a BTC wallet for when your each payment

If you still need help reach out to me i love this stuff.. Can't recommend simple miner, nicehash, or minergate - love ethos tho once you learn it. it's so good for troubleshooting issues with rigs

Mine is currently on hold until I get some new gear. My cards are now old enough to not net me any profit with the drops in the currency drops. I plan on getting back into it when I get new gear, though.

Just curious, how much heat does that DC-DC converter produce?

I think he covered it in one of the videos.  Not sure, tho   Confused

I don't think it produced too much heat overall. The efficiency of it is better than going through an inverter and back again, though. Not sure if that's in the above video or another one.

It's not great - playing with configurations at the moment - going to have to go relay to shut the power off to the DC-DC converter as the cards still run and are very warm when miner is off via the batrium. Changed back to a GOLD 1000w PSU for now, but only runs 12 hours a week when the battery is topped off. Considering reducing it to only one card and leaving it on 247

Hey guys, I am new to the forum but not DC, I have been living off grid for a while now. This summer I built an additional solar system that does not tie into my house power, I used it to run my AC all summer. Now that the heat is gone I have 3kw of power I don’t need. My goals are 2 fold, first I wanted to use the extra power to heat the house, second I’d like to sell the excess power. 

Without being grid tied or wanting to be I was thinking the easiest way to accomplish both goals would be to build a mining rig. Heat+money!

So I built the rig and I’m using 580’s. When I ordered the parts I didn’t order the psu as I would love to run this whole thing right from my 48v 2000ah battery bank.

So my question is... now that the rig is built, what’s the best way to safely and most efficiently power it. Is it with a Pico and the forklift bucker like mrpowerwall or would you use powerstream 450w 48v-12v for the mother board and the bucker for gpus. Or should I just go ac and use my pure sign inverter. I also wonder if going dc/ac/dc will create more heat in the psu. Remember most miners are trying to reduce heat, but I am building my rig to heat my house.

Any input is appreciated, I have been building buildings, solar and computers for years but this is my first run at a mining rig.
