It is a 7inch LCD display for Raspberry pi's. You can get it on amazon and if you have an aluminum frame I saw a nice holder on ebay for it. Links below. (non-affiliated)
What's up with these?? Do they work? How good do they work? Are they safe?
Basically what this does is allow you to run 8 gpus to a single Pci-e 16x slot. So far from my experience it has worked very well, but does require a fair amount of playing around to get it working properly. It uses a plx chip to effectively double your lanes. It doesn't get around using over 4g decoding or anything else you'd normally need.
There have been complaints about one-two USB slots not working, which I have experienced with one bad slot. But 7 to 1 still isn't bad.
Costs about $100 and here's the Amazon link:

Here is another Reddit post on this chip:
Tell the electrician that you want 3 to 5 30-amp 240-volt breakers installed with one L6-30R receptacle running off of each breaker. Then buy these 240 volt PDU’s and some of these C13 power cords for your rig power supplies. You’re all set.
This 240 volt setup will double your capacity and make your power supplies more efficient.
No.. Never leave them 24/7.. I'm talking from Experience they will melt literally and is a huge fire hazard. They're meant to get a reading and remove! If u want one to leave 24/7 then get a commercial grade one. \
EDIT: I have this one.. Read the reviews. couple of post showing exactly what happened to mines at 1100w https://www.amazon.com/Excelvan-Display-Voltage-Electricity-Monitor/dp/B00E1E1XA2
So just to be clear, this means that:
I mean similar case (8x gpu) can be had for 99.99 now
So $500+ for both is a stretch
Well, apparently it must just be their http traffic. If nicehash had an enterprise account, they could put their stratums behind cloudflare spectrum to protect against this.
No offense, but everyone in this thread needs to do a whole lot of their own research. Everyone here is seeing dollar signs and not understanding the mechanics behind it.

You’re going to want to mine Monero with that CPU and a Vega64. But if you’re just getting started here is probably a good place to look and may answer some of your questions:
Good luck! Google is your friend.
Single GPU rig is inefficient and with such a high cost of electricity he’ll be in the red from day one.
Older GPU than the 10 series of Nvidia is definitely in the red.
If you want to GPU mine, do at least a 8 GPU rig to ventilate the 100W a efficient Motheboard+CPU+ram will consume across as many GOU you can afford. Use at least gold rated PSU at their maximum efficiency (see specification on what load % is the peak efficiency of the PSU, gold PSU efficiency is like 45% of load, platinum peak efficiency is higher but the PSU will be more expensive.
But seriously, plug the number of your electricity in this calculator and see for yourself how many days you’ll need to breakeven at today’s rate:
You’ll never breakeven. Don’t do it, you’ll be in competition with people paying less than 10 cents USD and you have 24 cents EUR. When they are not people with electricity included in their rent. And they are already complaining! You’ll get slaughtered
> I know it's more profitable short term to just buy bitcoins and rely on the value to climb.
Not just short term, but also in long term. History supports this conclusion and I am glad that you understand this already.
The simplest way would be to register an account with NiceHash, and use the wallet they generate for you. You can mine using their legacy miner. It benchmarks your hardware for various algorithms, and automagically switches when a particular algorithm becomes more profitable for your setup. You get paid in BTC, which keeps things simple for you, as you don't have to worry about setting up a new wallet for every coin you decide to mine yourself.
Once you have earned some BTC from NiceHash, you would want to transfer it to an exchange (if you want to trade it), or to your own wallet (if you want to just hold on to BTC) for long term safe keeping. I normally transfer my funds to bittrex, where I trade back and forth between VTC and BTC (occasionally BCC too).
If you want to just hold on to them, I would recommend not transferring out of NiceHash till you reach a minimum of .25 BTC, as this would minimise the transfer out fees to 0.2%.
If you want to go to the route of mining coins directly, you will have to do some research on which coin you want to mine, and then join the mining community for that coin. I would recommend learning about scams related to that particular coin first so you save yourself from common mistakes. Then find a reliable and large enough pool to start mining.
Let us know if you have any more questions.
Oh yeah for those wondering what gpu it is, it's an RX 580 8GB sapphire nitro+. Excellent hashrate for when I got it ages ago (30 mh/s @ 105 watts). Yeah it's not high in efficiency but it can still mine great given the 4 years time I've owned it.
Info about the pads:
Thickness: 1mm (back and front)
Any 12 + W/MK pads should work fine, including
You can keep your current rig if you buy one of these and use risers for at least 2 gpus
I put this on my backplate and went down to 75-80C; using thermal tape.
This is including thermal pad upgrade.
Everyone has their favorite seller for risers. I used many different ones and risers are inherently crappy so I always had dead one or flaky issues. I switched over to the below risers once I saw them on Amazon. I started buying them back when they had zero feedback, I was just willing to try them. I now have 36 of these specific risers on my rigs and haven't received a bad one yet nor have any of them died.

I have a very large Excel spreadsheet for the transactional accounting, plus I mirror it in a portfolio on cryptocompare to help with tracking when to buy or sell (although about 20 of them aren't even on there). Most of them are in coinomi, but of course not all of them are supported. I've got a few in software wallets (those for which I run masternodes), some I have stored purely in paper wallets when there is a safe offline paper wallet generator available, and a few I have on exchanges (but never when there's much USD value involved).
Basically everywhere, with an Excel cheatsheet to help me remember where. :)
Dont know if you are mining ETH in a pool or using NHM but you should know that DAG file size is reaching 4 GB and therefore all GPUs with 4 GB VRAM will have issues to keep mining. there are some workarounds you can try:
Also from your screenshot I see that only GPU1 is working while GPU0 and GPU2 are idle, maybe this is because of the same reason I explained before. Nevertheless GPU1 is mining with a 75C temp so I dont know what OC settings are you using or if you bios moded your cards but thats a high temp and I dont recommend to mine 24/7 with this condition.
Finally Virtual RAM only helps when you have more cards than your current RAM system, also this will depend on what algo you are mining. Its recommended to increase virtual RAM to the same amount of your total GPUs VRAM. In your case you would have to set 12288 MB in Initial and Maximum values (3 x 4 x 1024). You can increase this value but depends if you have enough free disk space in your HDD/SDD.
depends, if you mine to what they call an "Internal Wallet" (a BTC address assigned by them when you join the site) then they take 2% of your mining earnings when they "payout" (which is just mining earnings going from the "unpaid balance" to the "Internal Wallet", from there you will have (once everything is fully functional in a few weeks) the ability to withdrawal to a BTC wallet address directly, to your Coinbase account (if you have one) or to Payeer, if you withdrawal directly to a BTC address you pay 0.1% Fee, with a MINIMUM FEE of 0.1 mBTC (0.0001 BTC), if you withdrawal to Coinbase it's FREE and Payeer takes 0.95% if you mine directly to your BTC wallet address (called an "External Wallet") then they automatically pay out once a week every Friday morning (around 5-6 AM EST) but the percentage they take is higher, so you are better off mining to an internal wallet if you are a Coinbase or Payeer user. Their new site is pretty trash for finding this info right now, but here is their old sites Fees page https://www.nicehash.com/help/fees
A GTX 1060 6GB currently goes for $300 + Tax + Shipping.
Is making 2 cents a day at 11 cents a KWH, some people may have 6 cents others have 25 cents. Most houses in the US pay 10-11.
At six cents electric you are making 23 cents a day with the current most profitable algo. So 3.6 Years
At 11 cents electric, you are looking at 41 Years.
Profitability keeps declining, so this is BEST case scenario.
Source: Nicehash calculators which in my opinion is way higher than actuals based on current experience, this doesnt account for the cost of the actual PC, downtimes and losses. https://www.nicehash.com/profitability-calculator#nvidia-gtx-1060-6gb;USD;0.11;1;180;0;a5=580.22;a7=32;a8=0.76;a14=30.7;a20=24.93;a21=2.11;a22=0.5;a23=0.21;a24=345.48;a25=0.725;a27=1.32;a28=2.63;a30=0.5;a32=1.13;a33=5
Don't get into gpumining thinking that this will be some incredible investment. It's more of a hobby.
I already typed a response to someone else using a GTX1080 so let's use that as an example. Nicehash's profitability calculator is great for getting rough estimate. Assuming your electricity costs $0.10/kWh you can expect to make $0.38 per GTX1080 or $0.76 per day running two. And that's assuming the price of BTC/ETH/LTC won't continue to drop (which it likely will) and the difficulty won't increase (which it definitely will, exponentially). It looks like the going rate for a new GTX1080 is about $500 so at this rate you would break even in 1315 days or 3.6 years.
This is assuming your electricity is dirt cheap but a quick google search shows that the average price per kWh in Puerto Rico is $0.1838/kWh. That actually results in a net loss of -$0.02 per day. It will only get worse from here as the prices fluctuate and the difficulty increases.
How did you come to the conclusion difficulty only goes up 30% per month? It's up from about 588T to 1,014T since last month. That's up 72%. In the past 3 months, it's up from 247T to 1014T (410%).
Let's use some really generous numbers at $0.05/kWh, 30MH/s per GPU, 110W per GPU with 0W of non-GPU load, 0W of external cooling, and 100% efficiency. Let's ignore the time to setup and maintain the rigs. Let's also assume no hardware fails and needs to be replaced, ever. Let's also assume all rigs are setup immediately, with no time for parts to arrive or to build. Let's assume proof of stake doesn't happen.
One 6x GPU rig right now, ignoring difficulty increases, makes about $87.40 per month of income. At $0.05/kWh, thats 660W = $23.76/month in expenses. That's $63.64 of profit per month = $2.09/day
Now let's take into account the difficulty increase.
The 1 month daily average difficulty increase is 2.36% per day. (see source below). The first month would be ($2.87 the first day, $2.80 the second day, $2.74 the third day...) which is $62.21 of income the first month. After electricity, that is $38.45 profit.
The second month would be ($1.44 the first day, $1.41 the second day, $1.37 the third day...) which is $31.21 of income the second month. Electricity is $23.76, so the second month, you will make $7.45 profit.
The third month would be ($0.72, $0.70, $0.69) which is $15.61 of income. Electricity is $23.76, so you will lose money.
Summary: It is impossible to ever get a positive ROI if the price stays where it is now and the difficulty continues to increase at the current rate.

Since you already have a computer and GPU, I would recommend registering an account on NiceHash and mine away. If it is generating more money than your cost for you then let it slowly accumulate some BTC for you. You can always transfer those to an exchange and convert to a currency of your choice.
4gb of RAM is required. That's unrelated to GPU memory size.

You can make aroun $4.50/day if you aren't paying for power at Nicehash. They have an autoswitch mining program to mine the most profatable coin and they give you payouts in only bitcoins.
Ethereum mining wont make you the most cause the 1080Ti on has 35mh on eth.

Much cheaper, more energy-efficient, more airflow, more versatile, just better overall.
you can use a makeup brush to clean most dust build up off GPU's. If you have a lot of GPU's I would invest in a Datavac duster instead of spending money on canned air forever. They used to be a lot cheaper though https://www.amazon.com/Bonus-Electric-500-Watt-Computer-Electronics/dp/B071LQSXGD/
I've got a smaller operation and ran into similar heat issues in the summer. Doesn't look like you have any windows to speak of. But I installed one of these.
Amazon.com: Strongway Utility Blower - 12in. 3/8 HP, 2905 CFM: Home & Kitchen
And a vented hose to pull cold air in the winter. And exhaust hot air in the summer. Made a huge difference.
Beautiful setup though.
He has two Veddhas stacked ontop of each other I believe:
Hey, just wanted to give a final update - it seems most of the blame lies with the thermal pads on the memory chips even once the BIOS limitation is out of the way. (Well, that and the fact that the RAM and the Core are all cooled by the same chunk of metal..)
With the SUPRIM bios in place, I replaced the thermal pads on the RAM chips of my 3080 Trio with 12W/M*K 1mm Thermalright pads (straight from amazon) and I can hit 98-100MH/s inside an H510, which is one of the worst cases in existence for airflow. With an open-air setup I could easily hit the limits of the silicon itself.
So tl;dr for anyone with this card: Buy some $11 thermal pads and flash the bios in the video. I used these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08CGL7MLN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I made a post with the final result here
These shelves are stackable, so that can save space in the end. I would not stack more that 2 or 3 rigs though.
I just bought the cheapest intel celeron frys had locally. I used a basic HD I had laying around. Currently I do not have a case. I have the MB literally sitting on the MB box on my floor. PS sitting next to it. I am about to do a DIY wooden case.
I see NEWEGG has this I am considering...
I only purchased an 850W EVGA power supply but it was about $130 on amazon... the 1200W is $300
They are using a BLADE server powersupply with a converter so it can power 6 GPUs.
I am using UBUNTU 16.04. It works like a champ. Lots of videos on You tube to config.. Easy to make a bootable USB and get it going. Then DL nicehash . Setup a Bitcoin Wallet. Watch a video.. easy to get going too.
Once it works for one GTX GPU, all you have to do is shut down and plug in another card. Edit your start.sh file to tell it you have 2 GPUs and you are making 2x the cash.
It is a little addictive... Be careful. Good luck.
I split the 6pin that ran to my GPUs with some splitters off amazon and this has worked 100% for me. I think if you're running a separate cable just from the PSU you're wasting a connection like that, you could probably power them via molex as well without an issue but with the 6pin splitter cables I think it's a better solution.
A related point I’d like to add is for new rig builders to be careful buying internal cables. I was searching amazon just now for 8 pin male to 8 pin (or 6+2 pin) male “pcie” cables, for PSU to aux power graphics cards. Some of the most popular listings were 6 pin to TWO 6+2 pin cables! Just because it’s sold and labeled “Amazon’s #1”, doesn’t mean it’s safe to use. Imagine newbs look at their Kill-a-watt “hey I got capacity for another gpu”, see the empty 6 pin hole in modular PSU, and goes for it.
A review literally said this worked great powering 4 gpu off of a 600w PSU in a 12 gpu rig. Chances are he’ll get away with it, but it’s not a risk worth taking.
I purchased it from Costco a few years ago for under 20 dollars but its the same as the one miata13b mentioned.
Here's one on Amazon thats even silver if you want something similar:
I had 2 racks so I used the 2nd rack to build a cover for the front and the back.
I also had some spare cardboard ducting material leftover (new home build) so I zip ties those parts to the sides.
Yeah. Also, don't forget how can you tune your GPU so it mines more efficiently. An example is this website from NiceHash:
These riser-less mobos are a lot to take in. The Colorful, Octominer, and the Biostar... I've tried them all. They are all awesome, but the Biostar is the best for a daily workload. It can be hard to start out with them... It took a few tries before I realized I had better results taking the fan shrouds off. The stock fans were just 4 mm from touching the neighboring card when still installed, so that was just not happening. Also the stock cooling would just blow the hot air onto the next card, then that one would blow it on to the next card and the whole thing just went to shit almost immediately. I was going to give up but then I saw the p104 card then it clicked. Just take off the shrouds. I also played with thermal grease replacement, though it didn't give much of an improvement.
And, there is no error! With nvidia it just pretends there's still a fan there and with AMD it reports 0 RPM but otherwise works as intended. With the case fans doing 100% of the air handling, it's audible, but thank god its not like you're in a server farm or anything. Otherwise the office rig concept would be just that.
About $10. Pretty easy to do the math on thishere
cryptocompare calculator, seems like a good deal to me
I used this. It made my life easier.
I was getting poor hashrate performance, looked at GPU-Z and saw I was “thermally performance capped” despite the card reporting a temperature of 41C. So one of the hidden sensors (on the vram) was getting too hot. I hit this at any memory clock over 500 when run for an extended period of time. I didn’t like the idea of coming anywhere close to a thermal cap so I now run the card at stock memory settings with a fan blowing on it.
I have not tried fiddling with the voltage yet, just low “power” in MSI.
See this article: https://www.nicehash.com/blog/post/nvidia-rtx-3000-series-overclocking-guide-to-increase-mining-profits
Please read the linked page, it provides additional instructions with respect to how much virtual memory is needed.. How to increase virtual memory on Windows? | NiceHash
CPU won't be profitable to mine.
You are limited to the profitability of the GPU itself
Nicehash profitability is a decent quick tool. Looks like you are looking at maybe .50/day profitability with that card.
You need to increase the VRAM for your rig.
The instructions below should help if you are using windows 10.
The “custom size” number should be the number of the gpus you are using multiplied by the memory of each gpu (i.e. 8x #gpus) and the number should be in MB not GB.
Long term is still 1yr+. Pretty much the only thing that changed is tax brackets adjusted a little to provide a minor tax break on short-term capital gains for some income brackets.
I’m sure there is a JSON to excel/CSV tool. You can grab historical data using the public API of several extanges.
> Planning on mining Zcash
Then stop planning, Zcash was sacrificed to the ASICs. We didn't want it but it certainly happened and within the next 12 months Zcash will be worthless to GPU miners.
Like the first comment states, you're looking at $33/week before electricity. You'd be looking at 3+ years to pay the machine off, and that assumes new hardware doesn't make your (now) old RX580s useless. Ethereum won't be being mined in three years, at least not by GPUs.
just updated the numbers, but payback period still years according to cryptocompare. Also, BTC hash changed drastically past few days so our original numbers were from before the change.
Probably about 4-6 months at the current price and difficulty
Use this website to calculate your returns: https://www.cryptocompare.com/mining/calculator/btc?HashingPower=15&HashingUnit=TH%2Fs&PowerConsumption=1293&CostPerkWh=0
You can't 100% guarantee, there's a minuscule chance of the entire cryptomarket crashing, but then that's not really likely to happen. As to your return on investment, look up what hashrate and wattage the GPU you want to buy produces, and crunch your numbers here. Then take your initial cost and divide it by yearly profit, and the result is how many years it takes to pay off itself. You can also divide by montly profit and get the results in months of course
When you say you arent paying for power is because someone else is paying for it (parents, work, school, landlord, etc). If thats the case then at least be responsible and do research on how much power your gaming PC draws when mining, then do the math and see if you arent screwing somebody with that expense and if its worth getting into trouble for it.
Depending on your mobo BIOS settings you could change your video output between internal and discrete graphics.
If you are new theres a wiki in this subreddit:
Also theres this:
Don't get into gpumining thinking that this will be some incredible investment. It's more of a hobby.
This is assuming your electricity is dirt cheap but a quick google search shows that the average price per kWh in Spain is $0.22/kWh. You claim it's $0.15/kWh. That's going to give you $0.14 per card per day. And if it's actually higher @$0.22/kWh then you'll have a net loss of -$0.20 per day. It will only get worse from here as the prices fluctuate and the difficulty increases.
I think the NH fees for external wallets have come down slightly (https://www.nicehash.com/help/fees), however, if you have a coinbase account, you can withdraw for free starting at 0.001BTC.
From coinbase you can either withdraw to elsewhere or even do a GDAX no-fee limit trade to ETH/LTC/BCH.
Zoom out to a week.
This happens to NH now, people are buying in burst between drop of difficulty. It doesn’t last much long and happen with KNv7, Lyra2REv2, KNH. Then it goes back to dagger when there is no such big solo order.
You can see the drop in dagger order when this happen.
Just enjoy the very short burst of profitability I’ll say. Just don’t take it for granted it last only minutes, doesn’t make the daily profit much better.but at least you can justify the autoswitching feature of NH with this behavior.
nicehash had like 80MH/s on cryptonighv7 at peak. and that peak lasted for about 1hr. thats literaly nothing. And then it went back to its average 40 Mh/s, whch is <10% of the network
You might be looking for Kryptex overclocking database to make more profit and pay less for electricity :) https://www.kryptex.org/en/overclocking/kfa2-3060-ti-rev1
I would recommend the 5700 XT. Because according to this table, it brings much more profitability: https://www.kryptex.org/en/best-gpus-for-mining
Their cost is about the same, but it is slightly higher. Such a video card should last at least until 2024, if we take the aspect of mining.
First of all, we have to wait for the first real benchmarks. Then we should wait for some "ETHlargementPill" or whatever.
It's better not to guess, but to operate the real numbers.
Speaking of real numbers, this post is sponsored by "The Best GPUs For Mining" page by Kryptex. Always real, always up-to-date, always awesome. 😊
This is the simplest and the best option — https://www.kryptex.org/en/best-gpus-for-mining

I think you can get the most out of Monero mining with a vega 56.
I think its 2x potential earning as mining ETH.
Don't have a vega but if it's true I would switch there and trade monero for ETH if you really want ETH.
Yes, you should earn 3 x 0.002 for your machine in 24 hours.
This calculator suggests you should be earning $5.89 per 24 hours in ETG, which is 0.0159 considering ETH prices. Which is 0.0052 ETH per 8 hours, NOT 0.002?
Here is a calculator. Currently you could make around 25$/day mining ETH (AFAIK the most profitable to GPU mine). You need to consider that more people mining in the future means less ETH per person.
I'm also trying to make my own GPU miner at the moment - the problem is that every shop around the world seems to be sold out on the Radeon RX 480, 470, 570, and even 580, which are the most efficient GPUs for ETH mining...
uh, I'm going to just stop you here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXHAjBMLRqY
These dudes have a 80k worth of mining equipment and are using nicehash.
They are killing it.
Looks like that 970 could earn you $0.60 a day assuming you pay $0.1 kW/h. Probably slightly more profit if you mined a coin directly, but you can use Nicehash to benchmark your GPU to see which algorithms/coins to mine.
You would need like.. 250+ graphics cards to use $3,000 in electricity a month assuming it costs $0.10 per KW/h. Anyways, use https://whattomine.com/ to find a good performance/price GPU or use https://www.nicehash.com/?p=calc if you are too lazy to figure out how to use whattomine. Good luck!
for what? AMD for Ethash Nvidia for Equihash and Lyra2REv2
1080 isn't any better than a 1070 unless its a 1080Ti
figure out what you want to mine and then pick cards based off that
I agree with SllepsCigam the 1070s are the best value from the nvidia side. If you can find them (which you can't) rx 470s are where it is at.
According to nicehash one 1070 will make you $5 a day, while the 1080 will make u $6.5 a day.
The 1070s will pay for themselves in 77 days.
The 1080s will pay for themselves in 84 days.
Actual after doing the math the 1080s might be the right pick.
Haha happy mining
First thing you need to do is get a power meter at the wall and measure actual wattage at the wall rather than trusting software estimates. You can pick up a Kill A Watt or similar meter for under $20.
I have been able to get AtiWinflash.exe (the command line, not GUI) to work on Windows 10 1803+ by using DDU to remove all drivers, unplug internet (to prevent windows auto driver update), and BIOS patch without drivers installed. I am not going to suggest Windows 10 over HiveOS and I don't know your level of comfort in either OS but for some miners Windows 10 can be a more straightforward start. Try and use what you are comfortable with and get good at mining in that OS, sometimes OS switching isn't the solution.
I think your GPU settings are a bit aggressive as well. The core at 1350 is just going to burn power for a small hashrate increase. I would suggest a core 1150 with a voltage target closer to 850. That memory clock is most certainly too high. You will be back on these boards in a few days wondering why your miner crashed and has a black screen, etc. You should use HWiNFO(Windows) to tune your cards and dial back memory until you aren't getting GPU memory errors. I use a Windows 10 rig to test, patch BIOS, and tune clocks and voltages each new GPU I get, regardless of their final rig destination.
1) Buy wall power meter.
2) Figure out how to BIOS mod cards
3) Tune each GPU using common sense ceilings rather than setting everything to max
Can you provide me a white paper or research paper in regards to what you have claimed?
I am seriously interested in reading your reviews on the designs of surge protectors or any articles that you can provide.
I personally used this article as a guide in terms of purchasing surge protectors:
From my experience they do work. I have seen them killed, saving the connected equipment from certain destruction. I have also seen them fail, but only due to being too old or due to direct hits from lighting strikes. The best surge suppressors are technically whole house ones, but they cost a fuckton of money.

Yep, the backplate removal is really straight forward, just follow the Gamers Nexus teardown (remove the magnetic half X, remove the screw covers with tape, then remove the 4 screws) and the Crypto At Home teardown.
For the 3090FE I used https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08CGVZ4YG?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share - 2 packs is enough for just the back (although maybe search r/nvidia for other experiences, as well as the cutout guide)
You should give these a shot too:
Very good and also 12 W/MK but much cheaper for the size.
I have used them on my 3080s and they get around 84-86 degrees now.

Wires are all under the desk. There is a power strip mounted to the back of the desk which is where the monitors/dock/desk/etc all plug in.
Different models across brands won't make a big difference for mining, you're just playing the silicon lottery. You might have to redo the thermal pads on the card you buy so make sure you research thermals on the card you buy.
For risers basically any will do just fine, just buy extras cause they're cheap and can fail easily or just be DOA. I used these. Just make sure you don't use SATA to power them.

You can also use hwinfo here.
Don't have to worry about bugs coming in or water. Just make sure you tilt it slightly down
You can get a PCIe card that has 2 or more splitters. I hear they can be a pain to work with and multiple in a system tend to not work. So a 4x splitter may do it for you.
Edit: you'll need some PCIe risers too of course.
Thank you for this comment. And not calling out my spelling errors. Would you mind taking a look at the link in the edit and verify this is what you mean? Using the PCIe, with a dual splitter to power both the riser and the GPU?
I think this works because my cards are only 480s.
I really appreciate all the responses as I try to figure this out.
At first it makes sense. Then I go to buy hardware and I am confused again.
Open air, on the balcony in the tent, front is open for industrial fan to blow air and top is 8" exhaust fan. I can post some pic tomorrow, it's quite late here.
But I did test them all in my 011 dynamic and they were getting 100 mh and mem junction would always sit lower then 86c.
Now when they in the rigs and hiveos lacking junction temp, I use thermal camera and little infrared thermometer.
One of evga is XC3 she is quite worse and hotter then FTW3, but she was close to msrp, couldn't pass on it.
Edit: Just get fan for the backplate and you should be fine
For my 3090 in the open air I use of them and I slapped some big heatsinks.
i used 3 packs of this to replace the pads under my backplate of my MSI 3090 Suprim X, could only get the 1.5mm stuff at the time so had to double it up in thickness as you need 3mm https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08YNDWZL7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1
didnt go right into the card or replace the thermal paste etc so didnt void the warranty or remove the sticker etc. even used the old stuff in other places under the backplate.
temps went down from 110c when mining to 92-96C...
if you have an increase in temps i would check you have done it correctly and got enough thickness..
Uninstall the garbage gigabyte OC tool. I love gigabyte cards, but their OC tools are TRASH.
Install MSI Afterburner. Set the power level to 85%, the core to -300, and the memory to +1000.
But, peak of 115c means that the pads are probably total garbage and need to be replaced. I had a 3080 Aorus and they put gigashit pads on it. Would thermal throttle even at 200w of power while mining, topped out at 72Mhs at 106c. New pads and now it hashes at 97Mhs at 88c.
Get these pads to replace the stock ones on your 3090. It's like $5 more expensive than getting 2 of the smaller packs (you only need 2 packs), but you get more than double what those 2 packs will give you. This gives you some leeway in case you miscut something or if you ever need to repad another card.
Maybe I will improve my temp with new heatsink copper coming next week.
So I will replace the mini heatsink copper by others bigger.
And I will move the CPU waterblock
I hope to be at 80c
Hey, forgot also include HDMI dummy plugs. You'll need one of them plugged into the 3060s for them to hash at full hashrate.

Im using the usb cables that came with the Powered Risers. They're about 18-24 inches long. I haven't held a tape measure to them, so i cant say for sure
Here's a link to the risers im running: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08YHGCJRD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_SHVGRCM173ARE02J5J63?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Yes you just need a pcie riser. Here is an example from Amazon. Make sure you don't use the provided sata power connector, just connect directly to a 6 pin pcie power connector.
You say right in your post why it WON'T work.
IT IS A USB SPLITTER. It is for splitting USB SIGNALS- not PCIE signals. Noob mistake. Send it back.
This is what you need.
I expect mucho karma for the info por favor.
