    do you need a graphics card or can you run it off an integrated one too?

    you need a CPU or GPU.

    CPU make pennies per day. GPU make £'s per day.

    basically you want as many gpu's as possible. integrated gpu's aren't real gpu's but rather cpu's.

    i just made a thread on buying a nvidia 1060... is there certain cards better for mining? temps arent an issues as i have enough fans and cpu is on a closed water loop

    Why is it that some companies (was it Powercolor?) that wouldn't honor warranties on cards used for mining (ignoring if they can prove it) if there's so little risk?

    I honestly have no idea, it can't be that much of a risk if manufacturers are now selling cards with normal warranty branded for mining

    The 1070 or Vegas are the best for efficiency.

    I'd get a 1070 as it will make more and pay for itself.

    Impossible to prove regardless. People are still mining on 750tis and they are ancient. If it was that bad for them they still wouldn't be running.

    My GPUs are all undervolted run at 54c.

    The only thing I'm worried about is replacing fans but I will have sold the cards by the time the bearings go, made my money back plus more on top and replaced them with newer more powerful cards

    How would a 980ti for mining this?

    Around £3 a day profit at the moment

    I’d like to give this a go but my pc is water cooled (custom loop). Anyone run a similar setup?

    My gpu is a 1080ti, how much would that make a day?

    I’m quite interested. My home rig has 2 x gtx1080’s. I also have a couple of dell R710 with 2 hex core processors in each, would they be any good at mining?

    Looking here https://whattomine.com - its around $3.50 ~ once power is taken into account.

    What's vega56 like for mining? Worth leaving it on for 8 hours a day mining??

    Vega's are very impressive at mining Electroneum, as you're looking at $8.50 ~ per day after power on average and they are very power efficient after tweaking.

    When you say tweaking mate, what do you mean, fan profile for temps?? I@ll give it a go but not sure how to go about doing mining. reference vega56 can be whooshy. At 100% load it'll be noisy

    Over/underclocks.

    You can turn the power limit and core clocks down substantially reducing noise/heat while pushing the memory clocks as that where the gains are made mining

    Is there a guide in the main crypto thread on how to do that?

    I'm really tempted in buying 2x Vega 56 and leaving them mining at work... Any idea how long it would take to get my money back? bearing in mind I wouldn't be paying for power?
