You'd first have to gather a few metrics for that. First, figure out if mining with it saturates the PSU. If not, note down the actual power draw during mining. Then take a look at your current power usage in watt-hours according to your last few electricity bills. Then simply add the number of watt your PC consumes while mining, multiplied with the number of hours the mining will take per month (or whatever other interval of billing you have for electricity), that gives you the number of watt-hours mining will require during that given period. Once you have that number, simply multiply all those watt-hours with the price on your electricity bill and you'll know how much it'll cost you.

And now a word from our sponsor: 💩

Do you expect to be mining 24/7, or just non-peak hours, etc?


I'm any case, when I do mining or folding during non-peak hours usually 3-4 days a week, multiple GPUs, my bill is on average 5x it normally is.

How much is your kW-h?

Forgive me El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education...

I will mention @Moonzy so he can throw some wattage about the 3070, and you can multiply it by your kW/h in your bill (since it can be different depending on the hour of the day)

Depends on how you config it

120-135W, usually, if configured correctly

Stock is around 220W


Factor in system idle and psu efficiency, 180-190W is a good ballpark estimation of total system power draw

Take 200W for some margins, and you'll get around 144kWh per 30 days, so multiply that by your cost per kwh and you'll know how much it costs


3070 should bring in around... $4 a day(?) it fluctuates a lot, so in a month that's around $120-ish


Assuming your electricity bill is $0.2 per kwh, your electricity cost is $28-ish, per month or so

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)


none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general


Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
