How to Build an Ethereum Mining Rig?

Creating an Ethereum mining rig is the first basic step to Ethereum mining. The setup will help you make profits without much of an effort. It takes a little technical knowledge to create a mining rig and anybody can figure out how to assemble their individual rigs.

Mining is the core basis of the ‘decentralized application store' of Ethereum and guarantees that it arrives at a consensus with every modification made to the DAPPs or rather the applications that run on the system. Basically, mining confirms and approve exchanges in Ethereum's system.

But has it ever crossed your mind what miners receive as an end-result of all the hard work? The Ethereum network rewards them with Ether coins. The catch is that mining has a tendency to require increased energy after some time, and more and more individuals put resources into specialized mining equipment. This is known as mining difficulty level and it exponentially rises with more individuals mining and going after the Ether remuneration.

Components of a Mining Rig 

Ethereum mining rigs differ from normal PCs but at the same time, are comprised of similar components as that of a regular desktop computer. The general difference is, while in case of a regular PC you have RAM, GPU, CPU, and HD, with regards to a mining rig, you have a minimum RAM, low-clocked CPU, a simple HD and 6 or 7 GPUs. 

Best Graphics Cards

With regards to choosing GPUs, you need to choose the best value for money. You're searching for one with higher hash rate, minimal cost, and comparatively lower power utilization. You can begin with either 1 GPU or a composite grid of 7 GPUs inside one mining rig. Ordinarily, you find 5 or 6 GPUs in every mining rig as having 7 GPUs may make it unstable. Some of the best graphics cards are as follows:

- Radeon RX Vega 56 
- Radeon Rx 570  
- Radeon Rx 580 
- Radeon Rx 470 
- GeForce GTX 1080 TI 
- Radeon Rx 480
- Geforce GTX 1070 
- Geforce GTX 1060 
- Radeon R9 290x 
- Radeon RX Vega 64 

Other than your choice of GPUs, you also need a customized case to hold the devices. Along with it, you need a power supply (essentially 1200W+) which is certified for its efficiency. You also need power riser cables, SSD hard drive, and accessories such as the monitor and the mouse to get going.
