  1. You'll want to get your own wallet. I would suggest exodus. Just paste in your new address into where they had theirs.
  2. The general go to miner for ethereum is the Claymore miner right now. As far as setting it up there are plenty of guides out there, but for an easy fix there is a youtuber who makes a pre-made multiminer. It's just a fancy bat file with all of the miners included so you just select what you want to mine and it mines it. Here is a link for that. Now with that many rigs I feel like your friend should look into a linux bases solution as they can be much better for multiple rigs. I personally use Simplemining, but there are others out there. Some issues that you might run into: 3gb cards can no longer mine eth in Windows 10. You will most definitely need to increase your virtual memory. Physically touch the power cables with your hand to make sure they are not hot to the touch. If they are then that's a problem. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask here or dm me.
  3. To compare, a single Vega 56 gets ~1,696 H/s at ~284 watts. While two of them would be around $220 more upfront, you get 1,242 H/s more for the same wattage. Thelz's comment about new coins being CPU mined is an interesting way to look at things. The short term profits that you can get on some of the more promising new coins can be quite lucrative. I managed to get into Ravencoin in the first few days with just my 5820k and I was able to mine ~700k coins. Having a dedicated server for doing just that is very attractive.
  4. I started turning a profit a few weeks ago on my $2200 rig. I'm mining Zencash at the moment.
  5. When will the craze be over? Who knows, there are plenty of other coins that make a profit right now besides Ethereum. Now as @Princess Cadence mentioned, the market will probably take some time to even out. The biggest worry you should have right now is if the mining cards aren't an incentive enough for miners to buy. If their price point ins't low enough, miners will just keep buying gaming cards to keep a high resell value if they ever decide to sell.
  6. A part of me hopes that the new mining cards will help alleviate the GPU market, but if the price ins't low enough then miners will still go for gaming cards to keep a higher resell value if they ever want out.
  7. Also check to see if your windows is updated.
  8. Looks solid. Only thing I would consider is going with the 6 core 5820k, but I doubt it would make a difference compaired to the 6700k. Check out this article from Logical Incitements about streaming.

    The new (and improved?) Linus Tech Tips intro

    The music seems a little off to me, but nothing to have a temper tantrum over.

    Two H80i in a 450d?

    Thanks for the reply. Just making sure I wasn't missing anything obvious.
  11. I'm currently working on a dual Xeon build and wondering if two H80i in the top of a 450d. Spent a good 30 minutes searching google and didn't find anything useful.
  12. I'm currently looking at a around $3000 for my next build. The amount of work and play I do on a PC makes it worth it for me.
  13. I love watching this series. More like it would be awesome.
