$ for $ best hardware for litecoin miner?
« on: April 13, 2013, 08:50:16 PM »
I am going to build a LTC mining rig and haven't found much on the best hardware for mining LTC. Is it the same as it would be for BTC and should I just review one of those posts somewhere and build accordingly? All I have to go on is someone on BTC-E saying the A10 GPU was a good one for the price. I was thinking to build around that and add video cards. If spending more gets me a lot more kh/s I will do it, but ideally I am looking at getting best $ for $ so I could later create several rigs, as I can get access to a power-free office for under $400 a mo. I might mine both BTC and LTC to make it more financially viable, but I think LTC is going to catch up long term since everyone seems to say it does the transactoins faster.  Anything input would be appreciated. thanks

I just built a litecoin miner. 3x7950 for $900, AX850 PS for $160, ASRock 970 Extreme4 for $100. added 4 gb ram, $11 thumbdrive, and sempron 145 proc. total was around $1200. I get on average 1550 kh/s with this rig. My card temps are sitting at 74, 76, 70 c on intensity 18,16,18.


Here are the relevant parts of my cgminer config



"intensity" : "18,16,18",
"gpu-engine" : "0-1000,0-1000,0-1000",
"gpu-fan" : "95-100,95-100,95-100",
"gpu-memclock" : "1350,1350,1350",
"gpu-powertune" : "20,20,20",
"temp-cutoff" : "95,95,95",
"temp-overheat" : "85,85,85",
"temp-target" : "75,75,75",
"scrypt" : true,
