RTX 3070 / 2060 SUPER Mining Rig Build – Hash to burn

RTX 3070 / 2060 SUPER Mining Rig Build

Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

This has been a stable and reliable build with very few issues. I am dual mining with this rig. Overclocks have been stable on all algorithms and heat has not been an issue. I am currently mining flux on these GPUs, checkout our guide.

Mining Rig Build Parts List

Here is my parts list for this build and reason for purchase.

  • This rig has been stable and reliable.
  • Dual Mining Raptoreum is providing extra income.
  • From my tests I have found the 3070 Non, efficient and reliable.

Cons

  • MSI 2060 Super consumes 140 watts – may be able to bios mod to lower.

Mining Rig Part

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.

GPUs
GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 3070 MASTER 8‎GB GDDR6 Graphics Card NON-LHR – Lucky to get this card at MSRP, check eBay or local listings to pick up a deal – steady 60 MH/s on Ethereum and 60 Sols on Flux.View Here
Palit GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER DUAL 8 GB GDDR6 Graphics Card – I have 2 of these, they keep good temps and get 44 MH/s on Ethereum.View Here
MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Graphic Card – 6 GB GDDR6 – This one gets up to 42 MH/s but consumes more power than the Palit Cards to get to that.View Here
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER VENTUS XS OC Graphics Card ‘6GB GDDR6 – This card could be Bios modded to achieve 34 MH/s – on the list to do – I will do an update on this.View Here

Rig Assembly – Motherboard

  • Research and buy parts
  • Un-package everything
  • Install an OS on SSD/USB Flash Drive – ready for installing on step 4 (See HiveOS install or choose an OS of your choice – I recommend HiveOS, it makes everything easier as its build for mining).
    • Next, Install processor, RAM and Boot Drive on motherboard
    • In the next step, plug in all riser cables (only applicable if you are dual mining) or a cheap GPU. After installation, you can disconnect.
    • Place motherboard on mount.
    • Plug in SSD/SATA hard drive

Components

  1. Connect all GPUs to riser cables and fasten them to custom case. You might need to experiment for optimal spacing to keep the cards cool.
  2. Plug in all power supply connections.
  3. Connect mouse, monitor and keyboard and an internet connection
  4. Check all connections
  5. Fire it up and install the operating system and mining software (see additional instructions below).
  6. Finally, make sure fans are fully functional. Start the mining software, tweak settings for maximum hash rates and let it run!

Motherboard Software Configuration

Every motherboard is different, in general you want to do these updates.

Time needed: 5 minutes.

Motherboard Software Configuration

  1. Update the motherboard to the latest BIOS using a USB thumb drive.

  2. Configure Motherboard BIOS with the following settings changes

  3. PCIE Subset settings – set these to Gen 1, above 4G Decoding (cryptocurrency mining) should be set to Enabled and turn off HD AudioSave and reboot

HiveOS Installation

Next, setup on windows and HiveOS are completely different processes. HiveOS have a great guide on getting started, here is our referral link. In my view its far simpler than windows once you get into it:-

Setting up a Flight Sheet

  1. First step add your wallet
  2. Select coin
  3. Choose the wallet you just added
  4. Pick your pool
  5. Click configure pool and select the closest server
  6. Select the miner
  7. Press the moon button.

GPU Overclock Settings

Next onto the overclocks, please adjust overclocks in small increments to find the ideal sweet spot for your GPU. You can find the mining settings and overclocks in our GPU post reviews.
