There is nothing impossible, only unexpected. Behind the madness of cryptocurrency, there must be a group of crazy players. A foreign miner named I_Leak_VN revealed his hand-built 10 card RTX 3090 water-cooled miner. Not only the hardware configuration is very hard, but also the biggest noise and heat problem of mining is solved by transforming the water cooling. It is less than 50 degrees when it is fully loaded.
NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series graphics card is really suitable for mining, especially the mining efficiency of RTX 3090 is a very efficient graphics card for mining ETH (Ethereum). The RTX 3090 has 10496 stream processors. I believe many miners have already seen this data, but its full load power consumption of 400W is also amazing.
In order to calm the 10-card RTX 3090 performance monster, this old man used three Zhenhua 1600W power supplies. As for other configurations, it’s secondary to mining. He uses MSI’s MSI B360-F PRO mining motherboard, and even the CPU cooler is original, because the demand for these accessories for mining is almost zero. Just light it up.
The key lies in the transformation of the water cooling. This player installed a customized split water cooling radiator for all the graphics cards. It can be seen that the fan used in the water cooling row is the new 14cm diameter steel shadow fan of TT. According to the pictures he posted, when this miner is fully loaded, the 10 card RTX 3090 is basically over 40 degrees, and the highest is less than 50 degrees, which can be said to be very powerful.
Many netizens are curious that such a super mining machine must be expensive. In fact, if labor and other expenses are not included, the price of a 10-card RTX 3090 should already exceed 200,000 yuan. The official price of the RTX 3090 starts at $1,399, but you know the current graphics card price. In addition, three power supplies are also less than 10,000, and water-cooled accessories are also less than 250,000.
As for whether he can pay back, the old man did not give detailed data. However, they are all about the profitability. It is estimated that this old man is a graphics card and technology. As for how long it will take to pay back, I will be happy!
