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 build. A lot of these can be swapped out for an alternative option which I will build on later.

Please let us know of any feedback or additions you would like to see to the list. But this is just a starting point.

Recommended for efficiency and ease of use, ideal for beginners but do your won research as always.

Server PSU

I would recommend for you to at least check out a server PSU – they are designed for long term use and are cheaper than ATX Power Supplies – with a ZFX board and Pico switch these can perform as a stand alone PSU – just remember to check your voltage as 120v will have a lower capacity on some units.

For me when choosing a case its not really one model – it all depends on the amount of GPUs and you should choose accordingly.

Check out a selection and think what will fits the needs of the RIG you are building.
