ETH Mining Requirements

After all the tweaking and stuff like that.. I found out that ETH mining needs loads of stuff...
And when I mean loads.. means tons.

Using Windows.. ETH Mining uses about 2.8GB of RAM and do not try to use a scratch disk aka page file. I tested and system auto crashed! Disable all your services and startup apps.. including all those crap Windows Installed.

GPU Mining needs a heck more. Seems per core requires almost the same as the DAG file gets huge nowadays.

I suggest you utilise the AMD Radeon RX480 as it has 8GB Ram on board and since most boards cannot load that kind of power usage... I honestly hope you are ready for a 1200W based PSU unit which will set you around $900. Most boards have 4-6 PCIe slots so U need a riser for that.

Typical configuration would be
i7  or i9 CPU,
SSD 128GB Drive
4 x RX480 using CABLE RISERS. Use the SATA MOLEX power line to power up the 150W GPU.

In Essence, it would be 4 x 150 + 200W CPU which takes a full load of 800W and that is a low rough figure.

If I have it my way.. I will use the 24 core DUAL XEON 48 Threads E8840 V4 or even E5 2699 v5 will blow you away.

In terms of money wise.. the baseline system can already hit your pocket (4GPU) around S$3000, but still, if you don't mine with it.. you can play great games on it!


  1. My sister read this blog a short while ago and she told me that it is worth reading. I just read your review and I am a bit convinced so I'll try to read this blog.

  2. Quite wisely, but considering I had a not so a lot of money, I bought a Radeon RX Vega64 8G HMB2, a great buy in my opinion. After download ATI drivers I realized that my computer is now even faster, that is, the optimization is obvious and even Windows didn't slow this progress)
    I completed the configuration settings fairly quickly and return to 4D Cinema projects, and again started playing Battleship)

  4. Do you still farm cryto currency? What exactly? What can you say about bitcoin? Don't you think that every other currency will also fall in prices? I think it's better to buy coupons at, than farm crypto currency.
