AMD Radeon RX VEGA 64 Mining Rig - INCOMING!


Man, these things are sold out everywhere, I can’t even get my affiliate discount on this item and that has never happened…


At (first time buyers get 15% discount)


So, at with the 15% discount, you will pay less than $400 for Asus DUAL-GTX1070-O8G GeForce GTX 1070 Graphic Card - 1.58 GHz Core - 1.77 GHz Boost Clock - 8 GB GDDR5 - PCI Express 3.0


Not bad, running 7 of them right now on my rig.

Still testing, added the last card just an hour ago. Also testes dual mining but didnt seem to be that good, got bad hashrate for some reason. Deciding now if i should mine ETH or Zcash. Also if i should use Claymore or Gnoil. So much new stuff to learn…


Finished building my new open air frame. no longer on the rickety wooden shoe rack of a rig

Aluminum tube frame with aluminum angle holding the back of the cards and a stainless sheet on the bottom shelf… didnt seem right all silver and blah so i gave the frame a coat of metallic black and some cherry red on the steel to make it match the VEGA’s

More pictures to come…

Were mining at 215.75 MH/s @ 1055W the HP server power supplies are ton more efficient then the gold PSU we had been using temporarily. also running a ton cooler in the new rig and temp. really seems to effect the VEGA hasrate.

GPU MINING For DUMMIES: A complete guide on GPU mining

What model is that? Pretty nice hash power with 5 cards. I have 7 x 1070 and use the same power 1050w and get around 200-220MH/S

We have been able to get them cool with minimal Hash reduction:

entire rig, w/ motherboard and cards running: 878 W/ 190 MH/s (38.4 MH/s per card)

The Vegas got a bit of bad rap because they didnt live up to the stupid expectation (70-100 MH/s) and out of the box they are power hogs.

but with the new drivers and minimal tweaking you can get either 1000-100 @ 43 MH/s per card or 800-900W at 38 Mh/s per card

We have Sunday as our go-live day for 24/7 hashing. we have stopped a ton for tweaking and tests. we are now at a point where we like our stable settings and rates/consumption.

we have the 6th VEGA in a desktop mining different stuff to tweak. but the 5 card rig is now going to start its mining.


Cool, was going to get those at first but got a good deal on the nvidia. SO basically 5 Vega 64 is same a 7 nvidia 1070 more or less. Although i don’t get how u can get so low power, they are suppose to take 300w each and even if you lower that to 250 each only the 5 cards should use more then 1000w or have you managed to lower the power much more then that? How much do you reduce it by?
Also how hot do they get? mine are now working in a storage room and since Sweden is sort of cold that room is almost like being inside the house :smiley:
The card are sitting around 67-70 degree each. I lower the power with 10% for each card also.


Very nice, one day I hope to build a beautiful rig like yours


at the lowe rpower settings not very hot at all.

ill post all our settings with screen shots and photos.


thanks…thinking for my next rig if i should get Nvidia or ATI…


Awesome… I’m seeing the same thing @JasonMasterNET.

On the Blockchain Compute drivers, I’m seeing:

Air Vega 64 - 44 Mh/s , but this is ONLY at startup. Once the cards hit > 65C , they start to thermal throttle. No way to get the heat down on the airs on the Blockchain drivers. So all my airs are running the 17.9.1 driver which I get down to ~39 Mh/s (dual mining), and run around 55C with about 140W per card.

On the Liquids, I hit 44 Mh/s constant and it can be kept down around 55*C (only on Blockchain compute drivers), but they’re sucking around 300W per card. But hell that’s a whole 150W less than what my original calculation for these cards (all the reviews were saying like 450W), so it’s still “worth” it for these.

Now if I only knew, grabbed all air cards and then used the extra $$ to get water blocks and put together a custom water cooling setup, I could run all those air cool’ds at way cooler temps with reasonable power levels.

But either way, still rocking!

And Jason that rig looks badass man! What is that, 80/20 parts?


The open air fram is aluminum tuning with plastic connectors from esto connector.

the bottom shelf is a stainless stell sheet and the braces are aluminum angle. the red i spray painted myself.

PSU’s are 1000W platinum server PSu’s taken from hp proliant servers

motherboard is a biostar tbc 250


Photobomb from the build…


are you using 3 PS for five cards ?
and what is better, new rig with vega 64 or rx 580 8gb ?


I love how clean the build looks right now with out cables but why so tall? Just curiosity more than anything as i only built mine 12" tall.


I wanted alot of air space below the GPUs to help with air flow and keep the temp lower. for the VEGAs especially the temperture drastically effects the hashrate


Yes im using 3 supplies.

1 PSU for GPU 0-2
1 PSU for GPU 3-5 (the 6th GPU is in another machine right now as we use do alot of moving it around on different miners to test. eventually it will live in this rig).
1 PSU for the motherboard/CPU/components

it is CRITICAL to build redundancy into your design. if one of my PSU’s were to fail i can switch the cards on to the other PSU and stay up and running while failed PSU is replaced.

typically id have a low wattage PSU for the motherboard, but i already the one pictured so i just used that. but id use like a 220W supply if i didnt alreayd have the EVGA picture din the middle.

there is nothing worse then your PSU failing and going hours/days without mining. thats lost money!


and ill post a picture with cables once i clean it up. im OCD and its all sloppy wiring until i get my cabale managment stuff in the mail


Yeh i have a single vega64. I know the numbers above show it is comparable to others but for my situation with its heat output I would have been better off with 3x1060’s. I have an 8card 1060 rig in one spare bedroom and a Vega/1060/1050ti in the other and the Vega room is literally 20F warmer all the time.
