Crypto mining has taken some huge leaps with the latest high-performing cards and CPUs coming out to the market. With the latest technology available, the miners have set-up some insane-looking grid that performs the s**t out of crypto-mining. I cannot use un-official terms here, guys.
We recently received news about a new mining rig, which uses NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs under premium cooling, to create some insane-looking machine. The setups have been spotted by I_Leak_VN, which shows mining rigs using premium custom-loop kits and even mineral oil to cool off GeForce RTX GPUs.
In the first spotted system, we can see some crazy miner has put a total of 10 NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs. The GeForce RTX 3090 is currently the fastest graphics card for mining cryptocurrency, especially ETH (Ethereum). However, it also requires a lot of cooling to keep it running at a steady phase, especially when you’re pushing those 19.5 GDDR6X memory modules, 12 on each side of the PCB.
According to sources, each card is equipped with a 280mm radiator & has three Super Flower Leadex Titanium 1600W PSUs attached to it. The GPUs run off riser cables which are attached to the MSI B360-F PRO mining motherboard that allows for up to 18 GPUs at once.
The second setup, which we found, is from Vietnam, and the user here is running a total of 8 ASUS GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs which are cooled by mineral oil. Mineral-oil cooling makes sure that all components are cooled at the same rate rather than variable temperatures across GPU, VRAM, and VRMs. It is much effective than standard cooling liquid.
