TP-LINK TL-WN722N Wireless N150 High Gain USB Adapter, 150Mbps, w/4 dBi High Gain Detachable Antenna, IEEE 802.11b/g/n, WEP, WPA/WPA2
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great signal stregnth, very cheap to buy.

Cons: side of the USB stick can make it hard to get mice/keyboard plugged in along side it. I bought three of these for various mining rigs and all three of them will just randomly drop connection to i remove the device and plug it back in. They have worked solid the past week, but sometimes i have to do this every other day or so.

Other Thoughts: none of my other brand wireless dongles required this.

Fractal Design Define XL R2 FD-CA-DEF-XL-R2-BL Black/Pearl Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: WOW room to work! extremely high build quality, subtle classy!

I went from a NZXT Phantom full tower to this, because my third r9 290x wouldnt fit in my NZXT without hitting the bottom mounted power supply. The Fractal has 9 expansion slots so if your motherboard has a bottom PCI-E slot you will be able to use it with a dual slot card. However, because of the heat of having 3 cards sandwiched together, i ended up leaving the middle one empty. I keep 2 r9 290x per rig now... besides turns out my 1050watt psu wouldnt be able to handle 3. power draw is 800 watts per rig with just two r9s mining at stock clock speeds.

Cons: its subtle classy appearance isnt for everyone.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for my mining rigs. i cant stand the idea of open bench mining rigs, especially at work where noise is a concern or at home where my kids will tamper with them.

ASRock FM2A75 PRO4+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this board for an hybrid gaming / mining rig. I have two r9 290x in it with an A10-5800k. I have the monitor hooked up to the motherboard and bios set to apu for primary graphics. I game from the APU while the r9 290x mine 1900kh. when im done gaming, the apu chips in another 46kh.

Cons: considering the price, none that i can think of.

Other Thoughts: Generally using the APU while mining is very qwerky -- i cant even get it to work on my FM2 biostar board. also discrete graphic temps and clock speeds are generally not accessible.
