Im pretty new to Chia but im excited about the project. Currently im plotting in my desktop and my laptop with a very bad results. I am ordering the following setup and i was wondering if any experience users here could recommend me or advice on how to improve it or which settings i should be running the plotting (how many in parallel, ram, time between them,…) and what i should be expecting from this gear.
- Intel Core i7-11700
- Team Group T Force Zeus DDR4 3200MHz PC4 25600 32GB 2x16GB CL16 (If the processor allows i could go for the 64GB as it is like 150€ more)
- Gigabyte B560M DS3H
- Corsair RM750
- Samsung MZ-V8P2T0BW M.2 2000 GB PCI Express 4.0 V-NAND MLC NVMe (here i would do the fast plotting)
- Optional: Seagate BarraCuda 35 2TB SATA 3 x 3 units (for more parallel plotting, even at slower path)
- Seagate Expansion Desktop, 6 TB x2 units (i will expand when ever i fill them)
I did do the exact maths but in my country this will cost me more than 1200€. Any suggestions on how to improve, tips, advices are very welcome. I still have doubt if with the processor and the 32/64GB ram i could plot in paralled decent amount on the SSD and the HDD at the same time with good speed.
Thanks in advance for all the help and replies!
