Doc's mini-Crypto Farm - 5 Rack Mounted Rigs
Updated post. Combined all rigs into one posting. Additional pictures added. Parts updated for 4th rig.
Aww, no PiMP logos or backgrounds. Partial redemption for PiMP Discord and forum screenshots though! :)
I'm waiting for your marketing team to finalize their stuff, but, fear not... for I am going to paint this cabinet green and yellow and slap the Pimp symbol right on it. 😎
Major farm overhaul is planned for next week.
- Power balancing: I need to balance the power demand across the farm.
- Air-flow/cooling: Reducing each rig to 8 GPU's.
- Beta Testing: Having an nVidia, AMD, and mixed-GPU (nVidia & AMD) rig will allow more flexibility in testing.
The spare RX560's (3) and GTX1050 (1) will be added to the new layout.
Great work Doc and that is a nice rebuild project you got there. I can't say I haven't rebuilt a million times to try all the different scenarios out myself!
Also, That spreadsheet is great - keeps things nice and organized and professional. Thanks for sharing!
Post and pics have been updated to reflect the results of the farm overhaul.
Added Crypto-TB to the post.
Well, after seeing your setup and the discussion about the "ping" command vesus gputool... I am ashamed :-) You are the Wizz :-) Great setup. Love it.
Dont be ashamed, be proud you found a cool spot to learn together with us :)

Hello pimps I am sharing some talks we had about this in discord, hope it helps someone:
pimp currently supports many usb asic andsoon monitor network asic too
4x GekkoScience 2Pac 1x NF1 Nanofury 1x Futurebit Moonlander 2
here is what it looks like on the rig
[/root/bbb/extras]:# pimp --add asic
Profile list filtered by "asic":
5101 (asic) bfgminer: for usb gridseed/asics [bfg.gsd.conf]
5102 (asic) bfgminer: for usb zeus/asics [bfg.zeus.conf]
5151 (asic) bfgminer: for usb futurebit asics [bfg.futurebit.conf]
5211 (asic) cgminer-dmaxl: for usb gridseed asics [cgminer.gsd.conf]
5221 (asic) cgminer-dmaxl: for usb zeus asics [cgminer.zeus.conf]
5301 (asic) cgminer-gekko: for usb gekkoscience 2pac asics [cgminer.gekko.conf]
5321 (asic) cgminer-ckolivas: for usb nanofury SHA-256 asics [cgminer.nanofury.conf]
Usage: pimp --add [Profile ID]
those are the miners designed for asic use (cgminer and bfgminer) and the clones of them, and they build those cgminer versions specially for some hardware to get good hashrates, i think too
For the complete list of PiMP Profiles, miners and confs, and how to use them, check out this post: https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/10/setting-up-miner-profiles
Q: Any to avoid? I saw some USED on ebay. I wasn't aware of an after-market for ASICs. I went with GPU mining as I can and do sell used for
asics are usually semi profitable the sooner you get them but as more asic released for a coin then the diff goes up because everyone mines with so used asic usually for fun, learning, and if you have cheap power, a little more. mostly if you are a believer that the coins will go up then you value them even if take a slight loss due to electrics yes there are several SHA-256 algorithm coins
also great for fun & learning. For $50 you could play with one or two.
TLDR: if you look at the ones that use cgminer / bfg miner you will be in good shape
some of the team have androids and other miners that are being picked up by miner.farm - coming soon
Happy mining pimps!
