5 Best Bitcoin Mining Hardware ASIC Machines (2020 Rigs)

Small form factor for home server and Bitcoin node

Before I start, let me emphasize on the fact that this request is something probably quite unusual for this sub and I apologize if it doesn't belong here. If that's the case, please let me know.

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I'm looking for a small, quiet and affordable computer which will run 24/7 in my house. The aim is to make it a personal server and a Bitcoin node (not for mining, just a node).
A Bitcoin node should run on hardware with good endurance, stable internet connection, a large storage and that can run for a long period of time.

What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
300€

When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Anytime during this summer.

What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
I'm not sure if it's the right place but here are my criteria:

Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
France

If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I will use this computer as as server so via SSH after the install. I already own some spare monitors and peripherals.

Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
No

Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
As said earlier, I need a large storage for the Bitcoin node. I'm thinking about a 2TB NAS HDD so it can last for a very long time. The NAS variant of HDD is probably the one which suits my needs the most as the disk will be very frequently accessed and will run 24/7.

Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Mini ATX if possible. I'd prefer a small form factor. The most important part of the case is its protectiveness, the rest is not important.

Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No, I will install a linux distro.

Extra info or particulars:

I found the Odroid H2 and Odroid HC2 which fit my needs perfectly but they are either sold out, unavailable or have insanely high customs fees. Also I checked Intel NUCs but I'm not sure it is what I need, especially for the price. A Raspberry Pi is not a good choice because of the storage capabilities (connected by USB 2.0) and limited RAM.
I considered building a machine myself but I'm not sure which components to use, and where to buy them. This is why I came here and this is something I'm still open to, if the price is not too high.

Decentralized VPS platform open to the public

I built a decentralized virtual machine platform in an effort to deliver the cloud that I had envisioned when I first heard the term.
This is an open platform and anyone can participate. Just like any other cloud provider consumers can buy virtual machines and block storage. On this platform however you can also sell virtual machine instances and block storage as a contributor of server hardware. We act as the Internet service provider and supply the networking glue that makes it possible for a server sitting in your house, garage or datacenter to run virtual machines that participate in our encrypted network fabric.
We make money by taking a small commission on sales and by charging for the IP transit we provide. We are responsible for building out a global network of peering points and handling IP prefix advertisement for thousands of public and private network fabrics. NOC support and abuse reports are handled no differently than any other ISP.
Consumers creating new virtual machines can search for providers based on hardware features and historical metrics for reputation, uptime, cpu, memory, iops, latency and throughput. If a contributor has to take their server offline then all consumer virtual machines and block storage can be live migrated to any server connected to our fabric with no downtime.
Contributors net boot our Linux distribution using a bootable USB key. Upon booting a unique identity is created and registers with our system. Our web administration interface allows you to claim these servers and bind them to your account. Then you determine if you want the server to be part of your own private cloud fabric or if you want anyone to be able to rent your resources on the public cloud fabric. You can also choose to do both, have your own private cloud but also monetize your under utilized servers and rent your excess capacity to the public.
Over the last year a few dozen people have been helping me test this platform during it's development. I've received positive feedback and it's time to invite the public to submit applications for the first phase of our beta round. Core services are production ready and battle tested but subject to a more frequent maintenance cycle. Once we enter the second phase of beta testing we will be accepting applications for server contributors.
You can submit beta applications and other questions to the following;
[email protected]
I'm looking for help with continued development. If you feel you could contribute to this project, please contact me at the address listed above. I plan on accepting applications for full time positions in the near future.
The goal of this project is to bring the "mining" model to the virtualization space and encourage anyone, including existing cloud providers put servers on our fabric and openly compete in a free market. Running our distribution eliminates all of the configuration and time required to setup a sophisticated cloud infrastructure and significantly lowers the barrier of entry to becoming a cloud provider. Anyone with a good server and fast unlimited internet can boot, register and list their server resources for rent in under 5 minutes. Your only responsibility is to make sure it stays connected and powered on and offer prices that are competitive with similar offerings.
To seed the initial foot print of the network, I setup two locations. Each location has four servers on dedicated fiber. Each site can easily achieve gigabit speeds to their peering points and communicate with each other over 10 GbE. One location is on the US West coast and the other is on the US East coast. These servers represent our initial fabric capacity and I plan to add 2 to 3 more servers in 2 or 3 more locations as the need arrises. The resources total;
Here are some features that differ from typical services;
Here are some features I'm still working on;
Initial pricing during the beta period is;
For example;
I know the current data transfer cost is too high. I'm working on lowering it, as soon as I setup more peering arrangements the cost should come down drastically. Only internet ingress and egress count towards data transfer accounting. All internal traffic is unmetered and free of charge, even if the traffic spans multiple servers in different locations. Instances without a public address are given private addresses and have no data transfer limits both internally between instances and externally to the Internet.
Pricing for highly available instances depends on the level of redundancy. So if you want your data replicated in to exist in 3 different locations then your price is simply triple the single instance price. If a location suddenly goes offline your instance can be restarted on closest location that has your replicated data. If failure is eminent your instance will be live migrated with no downtime.
Future contributors would probably like to know what kind of hardware requirements to expect;
The the current minimum;
These are optional, but highly recommended;
All pricing is subject to change, I only expect prices to go down. Eventually when we come out of beta, pricing will follow the free market as contributors will be able to set their price and compete with other contributing cloud providers on a level playing field.
Please comment, I'm looking for feedback.

[US-WA][H] 11-GPUs, My 2-in-1 Mobile Mining Rig [W] BTC/BCC/USD/PayPal

I have this posted on Craigslist at the moment, though I would be willing to ship as long as you're willing to piece it all back together once it all arrives, and pay for shipping lol.
I'll add the link so anybody can see photos, but I'll just copy/paste the entire listing below as well.
https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/sys/d/selling-11-gpu-mining-rig/6370381005.html
I'm selling my pride and joy of the last 4-6 months of my life, sadly I can't keep it in my apartment another day and have to hear my girlfriend nag about how much time I'm spending mining any longer.
This is really two separate rigs that I have combined into a single entity (see pictures for details).

RIG #1

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X99-Phoenix SLI CPU: 6th Gen. Intel Core i7-6800K (6-Core/12-Thread) (15M L3 Cache | 3.60 GHz) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 2400 MHz (x2 for a total of 16GB) Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (w/2 Fans) PSU: Corsair HX1000 1000W 80 Plus Platinum Grade Fully Modular GPU #1: MSI GTX 1060 Armor 6gb GDDR5 GPU #2: MSI GTX 1060 Armor 6gb GDDR5 GPU #3: MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6gb GDDR5 GPU #4: MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6gb GDDR5 GPU #5: EVGA GTX 1060 6gb FTW (Tri-Fan) Risers: Explomos Multi-Powered USB 3.0 (VER 008S) <----Newest Model

HDD: 2.5" Laptop SATA 7200rpm 1.0 TB HDD w/Windows 10 Pro

RIG #2

Motherboard: Asrock H110 Pro BTC+ (x13 PCIe Slots) CPU: 7th Gen. Intel Celeron Dual Core @ 2.60 GHz RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR4 2400 MHz (x1 for a total of 8GB) PSU: Corsair HX1000 1000W 80 Plus Platinum Grade Fully Modular GPU #1: MSI GTX 1060 OCV1 Mining Optimized 6GB GDDR5 GPU #2: MSI GTX 1060 OCV1 Mining Optimized 6GB GDDR5 GPU #3: MSI GTX 1060 OCV1 Mining Optimized 6GB GDDR5 GPU #4: EVGA GTX 1060 SC Gaming 6GB GDDR5 GPU #5: XFX RX 480 8GB RS Hard Swap Edition (Custom BIOS Mod for 29-31 MH/s + Undervolted for Lower Power Draw) GPU #6: Red Devil RX 480 8GB (Tri-Fan) (Custom BIOS Mod for 29-31 MH/s + Undervolted for Lower Power Draw) Risers: Explomos Multi-Powered USB 3.0 (VER 008S) <----Newest Model

HDD: Western Digital 7200rpm 500gb 2.5" Laptop SATA HDD w/Windows 10 Pro

The features that set this rig apart from most others is the fact that it is 100% portable and easy to move. Its compact design makes for an easy-to-manage mining experience, doubly so with the fact that the entire rig is on wheels! From RIG #1 to RIG #2 I have connected an Ethernet cable; doing this I am able to create a Bridged Network Adapter and effectively enable a constant internet connection to RIG #2 from RIG #1 without ever having to do anything more than simply power each device on. Of course, you'll have to have some way to give internet access to RIG #1 for this to work properly, though this should come as no problem considering RIG #1 has built-in Wi-Fi access, as well as a second Ethernet port on the motherboard.
If you're wondering how much effort you'll have to put in from the time you buy it and get home, I'll say that this rig takes absolutely ZERO effort to install. The entire rig is ran headless, with Teamviewer installed onto both rigs, so you don't have to have anything plug into it except for the x2 power cords from each PSU, and an Ethernet cord from your router into RIG #1. That's literally it. 3 plugs, then connect to each rig with Teamviewer from a separate device (there's an app for that).
This rig can literally mine anything you want, I have a multitude of mining software already available on the device, and custom made batch files in each folder so literally all it takes is for you to decide which coin you want to mine, then double click a single file and start raking in the coins!
Here are a few hashrates that you can expect to get if you choose to utilize all 11 GPUs to a single coin:
ETHEREUM (Ethash Algorithm) - 240 MH/s ZCASH (Equihash Algorithm) - 3300 sol/s NICEHASH (Auto Profit Switcher Software) - $20+/day in Bitcoin (which is over $7000 if you didn't know!)
I'd be happy to help you get everything squared away, and would honestly just like to see this thing go to somebody that will appreciate its glory. I spent a LOT of time building this rig, and I'm sad to have to see it go, but my girlfriend is constantly bitching about it and I'm beginning to procrastinate homework these days because of it, so sadly it is time to see it go...
I have about 90% of the original boxes that the hardware came in when I purchased it, and I've only had it up and running for about a month total, so there is massive life left to be enjoyed with this guy. With the way the crypto is going (or at least Bitcoin), it is a wise investment to get into it now while you still can ;)
SERIOUS BUYERS ONLY!!!!!
You may contact me either by email via this Craigslist listing, or by phone @ show contact info .
I will accept cash, PayPal (in-person ONLY), or Bitcoin/Ethereum and other Cryptocurrencies as form of payment.

Decentralized Replicated Storage Platform

I built a decentralized vps cloud platform in an effort to deliver the cloud that I had envisioned when I first heard the term.
On this platform there are two roles the public can participate in.
Our role is to be a "virtual isp" and provide IP transit to all of the virtual machines spanning our global fabric. Contributors netboot our secure virtualization platform and we provide all the networking glue that makes it possible for a server sitting in your house, garage or datacenter to become part of our network. We are responsible for all assigned ip addresses, so NOC support is handled no differently than any other ISP.
I wanted to bring the "mining" model to the virtualization space and encourage existing cloud providers to compete in a free market on a common platform and lower the barrier of entry to competition. Contributors set their own prices and consumers make their selection based on actual performance metrics (cpu, memory, iops, latency, network throughput and uptime). You pay only for what you use and you're not forced to conform to some "standardized" template.
As a company you may not want to rent your machines to the general public. However you might want to leverage some of the unique networking and security features and use our cloud platform to run your internal cloud infrastructure. With the physical hardware and data under your control, execs may feel a little more comfortable monetizing excess capacity and sell under utilized servers to the public.
To seed the initial foot print of the network, I setup two locations each with four servers on dedicated fiber. Each site can easily achieve gigabit speeds to their peering points. One location is on the US West coast and the other is on the US East coast. These servers represent our initial fabric capability and I plan to add 2 to 3 more servers in 2 or 3 more locations as the need arrises.
Over the last year a few dozen people have been helping me test this platform during it's development. I've received positive feedback and it's time to invite the public to submit consumer applications for our beta round. Services are production ready, but subject to a more rapid maintenance cycle. Once we enter the second phase of beta testing we will be accepting applications for contributors.
You can submit beta applications and other questions to the following;

Instances without a public address are given private addresses and have no data transfer limits both internally between instances and externally to the Internet.
Highly available instances automatically have their block storage replicated to another offsite server in real-time, if there is a eminent failure your machine will be migrated live without interruption to the location that has your replicated data. No downtime, no ip address changes and best of all you don't need to manage it. Pricing depends on the level of redundancy. Highly available instance pricing is your instance price times your level of redundancy. So if you want your data replicated in to exist in 3 different locations then your price is simply triple the single instance price.
