Description

Bootup speed I boot up in under 5 seconds from power button on to login screen. I'm running Linux natively, and I login to a i3wm session so that portion takes less than half of a second once I type my password. Not that I ever reboot, this thing is on mining 24/7.

Mining performance I'm mining Ethereum on this at ~55mh/s. I haven't OC'd anything, or flashed VBIOS, everything is stock. I could probably get another 10% or so by flashing and OC.

Storage SSD is a must for your primary drive.

The 2 x 2TB Western Digital drives are setup in RAID 1 and I use those for secure backups (cryptocurrencies and client database backups).

General review Everything is great, especially the case and the old IBM Model M keyboard. I love this case though, I can't stop staring at my computer.

I can't max out my RAM no matter what I do (running a game with two VM's open and everything is responsive/snappy).

You return the GPU's, you must.

Ahah.. As soon as they pay for themselves twice over I'll gladly sell one of them at the going mark-up on that date ;-)

Maybe it's you man, not the OP. There is a product in demand, that's how this works. It'll settle eventually.

I don't love the situation either to be completely honest. It almost forces gamers into mining or shelling out huge amounts of money. There's light though: Ethereum is switching to Proof of Stake instead of Proof of Work (ie: no more mining) at some point this year. There will still be some demand for GPUs to mine other cryptos, but not nearly as much demand as there is for Eth.

That guy is mad at the wrong people, one person buying just two cards would have no affect on the prices.

good job picking out the correct GPU (I have that one as well)

I actually have two different ones, the MSI Radeon RX 580 is excellent, but I also have a less-good XFC RX 580. Keeps crapping out and I'm probably going to have to return it.

my xfx rx 580 bios flashed and i dont even mine, 1500/2250 or about 9000 effective. under 150w. :P XFX happens to be the fastest rx 580 out of the box that ive read.
