for your 570, you can do x6 undervolt of course
i see you are using risers, so how do you get them mounted? with custom aluminium hss channel?
without riser you can only fit 3 cards even though a standard atx board can have 6 pcie slots. i would prefer using 3x vega56 without risers but i can't get my hands on them hahaha.

also, do not hold coins in the same place as you mine.
I am having trouble undervolting and overclocking. Help would be nice if you know how.

Did you mean 3 cards on the 750W PSU if I undervolt? what if I go with stock since I can't seem to be able to undervolt/overclock...
My rig is kinda ugly as we speak. I will be building a frame during the holidays

I was thinking on going with this setup once I receive my 750W PSU

1000W = 2x XFX 570 4GB & MSI RX570 4GB and all the other components (Including 3 risers)
750W = 2x MSI RX 580 8GB ( with 3 risers)

Also depends on efficiency rating of your PSU. I run 4 GPUs on 850W PSU I guess, with ease.

So with Nicehash gone, may be forever, what are people switching to? What are the alternatives? And how much you lost with NiceHash?

Hmm. I lost around 150, which was supposed to be paid out this Friday. Sucks, but that's how the game is, I remotely shut down my PC to allow it some much needed rest. Will probably go back to Nanopool for now.

What are your GPUs? Are they OC/undervolted? is your PSU GOLD or better?

1 GTX970
2 RX570
1 RX580
My PSU is gold rated. Also the AMD cards are slightly undervolted, -12mv each. I also mine on CPU.

That sucks. For me, it was approx 3 weeks of mining effort. Gotta make some ETH to at least offset electricity cost for this month

Mining experts.

What do you guys think of Proof Of Stake?. Looks like ethereum could be going that route.

I am running 3 GPU as we speak, I tried installing a 4th yesterday (MSI RX 580 8GB) and it failed. kept getting "PC ran into a problem and needs to restart" message when I plugged it in. A 5th GPU is on the way...

Any idea how to fix this issue?

Try switching out one that was working and see what happens. Also make sure bios are updated and proper settings are input in bios. There are some pretty good guides out there if you haven't tried that yet
