I do the same Stompah. These 6 cards total 1090W stock. They are split between the 2 850W PSUs. After under volting the cards and adding in the overclocked 3900X, 6 high speed fans, and a 2.5" laptop HDD and I'm pulling 1080W from the wall.

That's freaking awesome. Good for you! I wish I could get that rolling, but my house would be a furnace! lol
Ah! The joys of having a Michigan Basement.
I'm in Texas right now but I work remote now and I am very tempted to go to a place like Michigan.
Ha, I'm more worried about if my house can handle the extra electrical load.That's freaking awesome. Good for you! I wish I could get that rolling, but my house would be a furnace! lol
Exactly, it's much better then a renter.Ha, I'm more worried about if my house can handle the extra electrical load.
That has been my limiting factor.
I showed the wife a Reddit picture of someone with 17GH/s in their house. She complained that there would be crap everywhere. I had to explain to her at that level of mining it pays for its own house AND a separate house for you to live in lol
Yesterday I received a Ryzen 9 3900x, ASUS Gaming TUF X570 Plus Wifi, and 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB 3200MHz C16.
Today, I spend the afternoon swapping out motherboards and setting up the CPU to mine Monero. I knew the stock cooler wouldn't be up to the task so I installed a be quiet! Dark Rock 4. With all 12 cores overclocked to 4.2GH it's not up to the task either. Lol Soooo, I mounted a 3000RPM Delta to that bish. That did the trick. I have it running at about 70% and the temps are peaking @ 72Â°.

Yesterday I picked up an MSI RX 580 Armor 8GB. It was a little over priced but well below the current market value. I should get most of the ROI before February so I'm not too concerned.
This one requires Compute Mode in Windows or RX Boost 1 in Linux. It's running a little hot so I'll probably pull it out of the rig and give it a re-paste tonight since it looks like its never been changed.

very nice, I have always liked the look of the Asus Tuff and MSI Tomahawk boards. If you buy a adapter you can connect a second power supply so you can add in a pcie to 43 usb in order to get four video cards on one slot. Max out the PCIe lane utilization of your machine.
did you do the memory timing bios mod?
I haven't had the chance to use one of those PCIe to 4x USB adapters yet. I do have that board fully populated now with all 6 PCIe slots being used so this might be the last step if I continue to expand on this board. I currently do have the adapter and 2x power supplies. One is running at 66% load while the other is at 60% so there is still a little room on the PSU for another smaller card or two, though I would need to get very creative with the PCIe cables.
I didn't do the BIOS mod on the RX 580 as I'm getting 31-32 Mh/s already. The guy I bought it from is a miner also, so I'm guessing it was already done.
I was able to find a couple of 1660 Supers for real cheap but haven't heard back from the sellers yet. Hopefully they aren't scams. A pair of these would round out my first rig and get both PSU's to the ideal 80% load. LOL
If it is making that hash rate it was done already. the 4 adapter is very easy to add in. From my experience though if you want more then five cards avoid a Intel B series board. A Z series can do 8 easy, maybe more. My other half has told me not to buy anymore mining gear while we are in the rental. So I'm stuck with 1.02GH. I might be able to box some of the lesser performing cards and work in better hash to watts used cards in order to get a boost in a few months. Then I can either save those other cards for the new house or sell them to help get the new house sooner. I'm leaning towards the later but it's tempting to hold onto them.
