[WIP] Project Litecoin Miner | i5 2310 | ASUS P8P67 Pro | CM HAF X | 2 x R9 280X

So I added up the totals for my last build and it turned out to be a lot of money, so what better way to drown my sorrows than to buy even more hardware. http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/89136-wip-project-greyscale-i7-3930k-r9-290-nzxt-phantom-410-240mm-360mm-rads/


Realistically though, the aim of this project is not an investment, it is to help pay back the amount that I have spent on hardware over the past two years or so as well as get myself some "free" graphics cards, as my GTX660 is needing a bit of an upgrade. 


So I dug around and found a few Sandy Bridge parts - an i5 2310 and ASUS P8P67 Pro and decided that this could be the start of a new journey into Litecoin Mining. 


I ordered two 280X's, might expand to three in the future, but coupled with my existing hardware and a spare Corsair HX1000 which I removed from my "Greyscale" build, hopefully this will turn out to be a ripper of a mining rig. 


Let's see how it goes. Possibly going to watercool in the future.
