    Agenda:

    Hardware corner

    Folks who unfortunately got in over their head, are selling their hardware for cheap. Now is a great time to buy.
    Take a pick: XFX RX 580 GTX or MSI Armor MK2 RX 580? Many folks are in love with the MSI Armor.
    You get what you pay for and be mindful of resale value.
    Mfg counts - RMA Experiences - please post here https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/3002/discussion-what-kind-of-rma-return-experiences-have-you-had-with-various-manufacturers/4
    Re msi or xfx, and make sure you go for the one that also has a back plate, otherwise cards without back plate get much hotter and of that reduce shelf life of card

    Louis says: Also correct me if I’m wrong but apart from EVGA, most manufacturer card warranty’s cannot be transferred to a second owner. Hence why I personally would buy new from Amazon where if the card fails you can return for a full refund. On that note I bought 3x Gigabyte GTX 1070 for £353 per card and after mining for a year all three cards one ofnfans stopped and I was able to return for full refund plus the mining profit for a whole year 😃 , so warranty is definitely something to consider too

    1070 = 135 watts. On rx570 = 65 watts On eth both with same hashrate,... Works for ETH.
    for RX570, You should use one click then gputool-config.json clock for me is 1040 memory 1975, I don’t touch the power limit

    Coin prices

    BTC is reserve cryptocurrency
    What to do with the coins? Some you trade, some you hold, some you pay the bills

    Mining profits / difficulty

    • 1050Ti mining ZEC - keeping garage warm, paying entire house electric bill by cashing out some coin each month.

    What are various coins and variations of algorithms?

    Why do some people dislike ASICs or go for "ASIC Resistance"?

    CPU -> GPU -> FPGA/ASIC
