Firstly, in order to build a mining rig there are a number of things to think about and parts to purchase. I have split some of these out below from my latest builds. A lot of these can be swapped out for an alternative option.

We make our recommendation focusing on efficiency and ease of use, ideal for beginners but do your own research as always.

Mining Rig Part

Quick Review

Integrated graphic's and does the job for mining on an AM4 Motherboard.

Reliable and cheap to run HiveOS. Easily replaceable.

Has all the mining features required, 4g decoding etc. Also has some cool RGB at a reasonable price.

This rig has more power capacity to get to 80% of load. Having one of these allows me to add extra gpu's.

Good price, please pick up an extra pack of fans. I forgot and had to get another pack.

Parallel Mining supply some great bundles on server power supplies. You get the cables you need and can adapt your order as required. You will need a Pico switch as well to power the motherboard and cpu.

Great RGB with a controller at a reasonable price. The airflow is also reasonable

Updating my rigs to these ones going fowards, 8 capacitors and I have some white builds coming.

Quick Review

Amazon Link

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6-core, 12-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler

CPU was taken out of a gaming build I did, not bad on Raptoreum. 


Boot Drive: ADATA Ultimate Series: SU630 240GB Internal SATA Solid State Drive

These have been reliable for me and a reasonable price. You could also check out the Kingston SSD.

Motherboard: MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI Motherboard

Quite expensive but came out of a gaming system, the quality is good and no reliability issues.

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Desktop Memory Kit

Good quality ram, at a decent price. I find corsair to be a very reliable brand.

Splitter Card: PCIe 1 to 4 Riser Card, Pcie Splitter 1 to 4 PCI Riser Card

This rig has more power capacity to get to 80% of load. Having one of these allows me to add extra gpu's.

Mining Frame: Veddha T2 6 GPU 8 GPU Minercase V3C V3D Aluminum Stackable Mining Rig Open Air Frame Case

I bought this, its a great frame but only if you can get it an affordable price. After moving my rigs several times I kow realize why this has such a durable design compared to cheaper frames.

PSU: Corsair CP-9020139-UK HX1000 1000 W 80+ Platinum Fully Modular Power Supply Unit - Black

Never cheap out on an ATX PSU. You could also consider a server psu.

Fans: upHere RGB Series Case Fan,120mm Fan,Quiet Edition High Airflow Adjustable Color LED Case Fan for PC Cases-5 Pack

Great RGB with a controller at a reasonable price. The airflow is also reasonable.

Risers: Ubit 6-PCS PCI-E Riser 

Updating my rigs to these ones going fowards, 8 capacitors and I have some white builds coming.

Quick Review

Amazon Link

CPU: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-core, 24-thread unlocked desktop processor with Wraith Prism LED Cooler

Ryzen 9 3900's which have a hashrate of 3601 h/s each

Motherboard:MSI Arsenal Gaming AMD Ryzen 2ND and 3rd Gen AM4 M.2 USB 3 DDR4 DVI HDMI Crossfire ATX Motherboard (B450 TOMAHAWK MAX II)

The White Mortal Motherboard is out of stock so I went for this one due to the RGB and affordabilty.

RAM:Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz C16 LED Desktop Memory - White

This is when the rig starts to get very white, Love the RGB and will always be useful in the futire if I do another gaming build.


PSU: Corsair CX650F RGB, 650 Watt, 80 PLUS Bronze, Fully Modular RGB White Power Supply

This is a bronze Power Supply, I am not drawing as much power as GPU mining at around 125 watts this will be good enough. White and great RGB,

Boot Drive: Sabrent Rocket Q 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive

Go for the lower gig version of this, dont need 1tb the smallest size should surfice. I had one already from Chia Plotting.



Adapter: SSK Aluminum M.2 NVME SSD Enclosure Adapter

Great tool to have around, I used it for Chia Mining plotting on my Intel NUC. Its useful to burn HiveOS onto a SSD. Check compatibility.

Power Switch: weideer 12mm Momentary Push Button Switch Metal Chassis Switch Waterproof

Again, with the white theme I had to have a white Power Switch.

Motherboard Mount: Bewinner Open Frame Transparent Acrylic Frame Computer Case DIY Base Stand For ATX Mothboard Convenient for Testing, Overclocking or Gaming Support Longer Graphic Card

Last but not least, the pedestal to show off my new rig build. I have been thinking about putting it on a laptop stand aswell. Look for the size that corresponds to your motherboard.. Great for a test bench too.

Risers: Ubit 6-PCS PCI-E Riser 

If you are doing some GPU mining aswell, these white and red risers will fit in with the look.
