Choosing Your Hardware
BIOSTAR is the first brand to offer variable platform options for motherboards designed for crypto mining. The new BIOSTAR TB350-BTC will compliment any mining operation perfectly.
There’s a lot to consider before getting started in setting up your bitcoin mining rig. We highly recommend starting with AMD graphics card like the Radeon RX 470 VGA. After which, other components are chosen and the necessary parts are ready including PCI-e risers and if you’ll be using around six graphics cards, we highly recommend two separate power supplies. The BIOSTAR motherboard for mining series features dedicated AUX power connector for reinforced power delivery for superior system stability and enhance GPU performance.
