I built a mining rig using an ASRock Q1900M mini combo motherboard with CPU. This motherboard has a passive cooler and uses very little power so I chose it for the mining rig build.

This board has three PCIe slots and all I needed for this rig was two slots. Since I am installing two GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards which use 250 Watts each, I am not going to be putting any more cards on this rig anyway.

I was talking about installing my old GT 770 graphics card on this rig as well but decided that it would burn too much power combined with the two 1080s.

I used the dogfish 30 GB SSD hard drive I recently received in the mail along with some used RAM I had laying around. An 850 Watt Thermaltake power supply was to power the rig.

I first build a mining rig frame out of lumber and then put the motherboard and power supply in place. Then I wired everything up and got the hard drive connected.

Next I installed Windows 10 Pro from a USB stick and then did all the current Windows updates.

During the entire process I used the original onboard graphics card for the installation.

Then I put on the first graphics card with its riser and started the computer. I installed the proper drivers and then mined a bit with the card to make sure it was running well.

And finally I installed the second graphics card and got the rig mining.

These are the parts I used:
