I wanted to start this thread and hopefully people will follow and post enough for it to become a Sticky.
I wanted to share with you guys my current Mining rig that I have been slowly working on during the past days. My rig was an ethereum rig with 4 R9 390''s so it had 2 power supplies due to the huge power draw. It was hashing constantly 115 and mining more less 20 ETH per month but consuming $210 a month in power!
Im currently in the process of bringing down my ETH rig by selling the cards. I sold one R 9 390 and 2 old 7970's and invested that back with 4 x5TB drives!
My goal is to generate as much profit as possible with less power draw. So far the experience is great the community the chat rooms in general are very helpful.
Here is my rig below:
2 x 5TB Seagate External 5TB drives (powered)
1 Internal 6TB white label I bought off Ebay
Old 2 TB drive
Old 500GB Drive
Total TB mining: 18.5TB ( plotting 5TB now and 10TB on the way)
Soon to be added:
1 External USB 3.0 Hub
2 Seagate 5TB external USB 3.0
1 Old 320 GB Sata drive laying around
Total TB: 10.32TB
Grand Total once finished : 28 TB (rounded down)

Very nice Mining rig sir, looking sexy!
@BurgerBaron tiewrap sexy !
@Burstminer From bottom to top:
HP DL380 G6 ( Dual quad core Xeons + 32GB RAM) running a Solaris clone as the head unit for my Frankenstein storage appliance. It has 7 x 1TB drives locally, and the unit above it connected via a SAS interface to an HP array controller. All the drives are individually presented as RAID 0 disks, then combined into 4 ZFS Pools as RAID 0 stripes . The drive chassis has approx. 55TB in a mixture of drive sizes. In total 5 LUNs are presented by the server. The whole mess is presented to an ESX server (HP Workstation) running VMware over a 40Gb Infiniband connection. The HP Workstation is a dual hex core box with 32GB. The mining VM has 22 vCpus and mines Burst + Eth via a passthru R9-280X.
The top box is straight forward - dual hex core Opterons with 10 x 4TB drives _ R7-370 GPU Miner.
@haitch hey man thats some powerful rack mountable stuff! I have been working with HP servers for ages and those guys are loud and take up power!
Other than that they run rock solid.
Why do you have so much Ram? Does it help in mining?
@Burstminer It's just what was in them ..... they don't need that much, they just have it. They're not too loud - they're in my cube at work, so no power cost ...
@Burstminer Impressive... You know what they sy: If you're not plotting you're not growing ;P
@haitch Very impressive although i don't understood nothing you said LOL but looks like a very impressive rig?! xD
bottom of motherboard not isolated?
SATA HDDs without cooling?
@Blago You are right. Isolate the electronic components is important.
Also the vibrations of the rack should be considered. These can't be good for the HDDs.
Hello @Blago , the mother board sits on top of a few 1x2x1 inch thick rubber rectangular pieces. So its 100% isolated from metal.
The internal hard drives yes they are directly on the rack and I should add a layer of rubber sheet below. What do you guys think? @daWallet

Nice to see the rigs....i only have a 5TB HDD....
@Burstminer I'm used HDD rack from old case, like this
You prefer internal over external? Or just because?
