I would recommend anything that isn't windows 10. Use Ethos or simple. Ethos is $39.99. Hashrates were faster on EthOS and overclocking is done in a simple config file. If I recall correctly you just add a line in the config file like:

globalcore 1100 globalmem 2100

but that can all be found on the ethos knowledge base.

Also Ethos can use other miners like claymore so yes you can dual mine

A single psu doesn't have the cables for 6 GPU's. Also this way the PSU's stay at about 50% load maximizing efficiency. Good luck!!

Well, since no cards are actually made for gaming you have to discover which are best for it. It just so happens the best hash rate per dollar is the 470 and 480. AMD cards just always mine better.

they both kick on at the same time at a very low rpm. And nope absolutely no issues with this GPU at all I'm actually ridiculously impressed with it. 10/10 would GPU again.

I wanted to do that but (allegedly) it doesn't fit. But that was according to measurements available online. Im sure if I remove the whole fan bracket it would fit.

Comment reply on ahalokid's Completed Build: First Build: Red/Black color scheme, GTX 1070

  • 42 months ago

They are CPU heavy. But every client build I put together used i5's. I used an i7 once for someone who was going to school for film and VFX. The i5 6500 is my usual go-to for client builds and they all run games at 144hz no problem and CPU loads never go above ~30%. Now I'm aware CPU load doesn't give nearly the whole story but I have a lot of faith in the i5 series as being all the power even modern AAA titles need. Now would I support i7 since I love being over the top? Absolutely lol.

An i7 is literally never needed for gaming. Ever. I build about 4 or 5 rigs a week and the ones with i5's and gtx 1080s have the exact same frame rates as those with i7s and 1080s. i7's show their power in benchmarks and CPU heavy video rendering and heavy calculation.

An i5 can do 144hz at 4k ultrawide with no problem because the power necessary for that is coming mostly from the GPU. As long as you are running at least an i5 6400 you will be fine in every game out right now.

Also +1 on the build. Looks nice and your parts choices seem thought out and intelligent.

please do. I was going to buy the 100ME because I love the MSI style and the green. I have a current rig with SLI 980 Ti's but I was thinking of doing an open air ITX build and that would compliment it nicely.

(VFX major here) It takes load off the CPU during live preview and rendering. (depending on the particular plug in he is using) A large amount of RAM is still very useful while working with RAM previews or After effects CC's new live preview mode. They eat ram and can easily use even 64GB ram no problem.
