Figures out I want to start mining Chia.
My plan is to have one pc for plotting and gaming when Im not plotting and one pc for farming. After a HD is full I will transfer it from PC A (plotting) to PC B (farming).
Farming PC, specs:
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B360-F Gaming, S-1151
CPU: Intel Core i7-9700 Prosessor, 8 cores
Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4 3200MHz 16GB
OS HD: Kingston A2000 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD
And ofc the harddrives that comes with the plots.
This PC is my old gaming PC, that I want to use after upgrading it.
Plotting PC, specs:
Motherboard: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XII HERO (WI-FI) Motherboard - Intel Z490 - Intel LGA1200 socket - DDR4 RAM - ATX
CPU: Intel Core i7-11700K Rocket Lake Prosessor - 8 cores 3.6 GHz - Intel LGA1200 - Intel Boxed without heatsink/fan
Memory: Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3200 C16 DC - Black - 64GB
SSD OS: Samsung 980 SSD PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 - 1TB
SSD Plotting: Intel Solid-State Drive DC P4510 Series - solid state drive - 2 TB - PCI Express 3.1 x4 (NVMe)
And ofcourse the plottings harddisks.
So my questions:
- Do the setup looks ok?
- Is it a hassel to switch the harddrives from PC1 to PC2 after plotting? Dont want to use the most expensive hardware on the farming PC after the plotting phase are done, so figured id put in in my new gaming PC.
- What do people think about Chias future? Feel like I am in here for the long run.
- Any tips for a newbie?
