Is anyone mining Ethereum

Recommended Posts

I am currently using my gaming desktop to mine Ethereum while I'm not gaming (most of the time). 

  • System spec's
  • CPU: i7-6700K
  • Montherboard: Maximums code IX
  • Ram: 32 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz 
  • Video Cards: Strix 1080 11 Gbps



This system is currently mining at about 20.800 Mh/s per card for a total of 41.600 Mh/s .......Then I got to thinking that I did just built my daughters a gaming computer using Unraid to run two VM's with 2 dedicated Strix 1070 6GB video cards. Running the same Claymore miner application and to my surprise it got 19.599 Mh/s per card

I am running Claymore.s.Dual.Ethereum.Decred_Siacoin_Lbry_Pascal.AMD.NVIDIA.GPU.Miner.v9.5

All computer are still usable for just about all task even watching a little YouTube, But to play any games we just kill the miner.....then back one to earn a little bit extra cash with a resource that normally just goes to waste (we keep our computers on 24/7) I might try with 2 extra 980ti's I have just to see what kind of Hash they are getting
