Building A GTX 1080 Ti Mining Rig On ASRock Q1900M Motherboard

The Do It Yourself World Electronics

Feb 08, 2018


Category: Cryptocurrency & Mining

Description:  I built a mining rig using an ASRock Q1900M mini combo motherboard with CPU. This motherboard has a passive cooler and uses very little power so I chose it for the mining rig build.

This board has three PCIe slots and all I needed for this rig was two slots. Since I am installing two GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards which use 250 Watts each, I am not going to be putting any more cards on this rig anyway.

I was talking about installing my old GT 770 graphics card on this rig as well but decided that it would burn too much power combined with the two 1080s.

I used the dogfish 30 GB SSD hard drive I recently received in the mail along with some used RAM I had laying around. An 850 Watt Thermaltake power supply was to power the rig.

I first build a mining rig frame out of lumber and then put the motherboard and power supply in place. Then I wired everything up and got the hard drive connected.

Next I installed Windows 10 Pro from a USB stick and then did all the current Windows updates.

During the entire process I used the original onboard graphics card for the installation.

Then I put on the first graphics card with its riser and started the computer. I installed the proper drivers and then mined a bit with the card to make sure it was running well.

And finally I installed the second graphics card and got the rig mining.

These are the parts I used:

ASRock mini motherboard and CPU:
Dogfish 30 GB SSD Hard Drive:
Thermaltake 850 Watt power supply:
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080Ti graphics cards:

Lets just say it will boggle your mind...  And wait till you see the little outside cats peeking through the window begging to come in. Trog pulls the window shade down during an edit so he doesn't have to look at them. He's such a Prick!  >:(

The windforce graphic card he showed on that wooden POS is plugged full of dirt. His house must be a sty.

I wander how he's skirting around the activation of each installation?

Meanwhile Samsung is working on a project that will make video cards useless for crypto mining..........

Samsung confirms it is making ASIC chips for cryptocurrency mining

It will probably more energy efficient than the video cards too...........

DUMB@$$$!!!!!!!!

See crap like this makes me hate Troy so much more... I wish Melanie would lock him outside and take pictures of him looking through that window.  Now that would be sweet justice!

He's really pissing me off letting those cats beg like that!  Evidently, the mouse population isn't keeping them well fed if they are up at the window begging for food!  The prick!

I agree. That's why he tried to BS everyone into thinking all he did was break the seal on the box.
The real reason is because he had to go over everything in advance, that way he won't look as stupid as he really is.

He"ll screw the other Graphics Card down later.
