Setting up a four GPU altcoin mining rig using a nice Gigabyte motherboard I picked up on craigslist the other day.This motherboard has five PCI e slots which makes it the best board I have in the house right now. My second best is a 3 PCIE motherboard.I first started out with a single graphics card directly in the first PCI-E slot and fired up the computer. I let Windows set up the drivers and do its work before restarting the computer.After it was fully rebooted I shut the computer down again and installed a second graphics card on a riser. Then I booted up the computer and let Windows find the card and install the drivers.I use MSI Afterburner to see if the card is installed and working properly. This program gives me a lot of data on the cards.I did the same thing until I had four graphics cards installed and running.Sometimes Windows will shut off the display and you think the computer has crashed. This is normal and I see it a lot. Just let the computer work for a while and generally the display will come back on again.Once I had all four cards installed I turned on the fans to high speed in Afterburner.Then I started my mining program and - wow - all the shares I was getting!!It was so awesome to see so many shares all at one time. Each green line is another share found.This is really exciting.I need to buy another card and get it mining on this motherboard with the others. I am going to keep this mining rig running with all matching cards.Thanks for watching.Please like, subscribe and share.You can follow me on Patreon and see all the work I do across my four channels and blog posts.

Setting up a four GPU altcoin mining rig using a nice Gigabyte motherboard I picked up on craigslist the other day.

This motherboard has five PCI e slots which makes it the best board I have in the house right now. My second best is a 3 PCIE motherboard.

I first started out with a single graphics card directly in the first PCI-E slot and fired up the computer. I let Windows set up the drivers and do its work before restarting the computer.

After it was fully rebooted I shut the computer down again and installed a second graphics card on a riser. Then I booted up the computer and let Windows find the card and install the drivers.

I use MSI Afterburner to see if the card is installed and working properly. This program gives me a lot of data on the cards.

I did the same thing until I had four graphics cards installed and running.

Sometimes Windows will shut off the display and you think the computer has crashed. This is normal and I see it a lot. Just let the computer work for a while and generally the display will come back on again.

Once I had all four cards installed I turned on the fans to high speed in Afterburner.

Then I started my mining program and - wow - all the shares I was getting!!

It was so awesome to see so many shares all at one time. Each green line is another share found.

This is really exciting.

I need to buy another card and get it mining on this motherboard with the others. I am going to keep this mining rig running with all matching cards.

Thanks for watching.
