Why not the latest Intel CPU instead of the Celeron? I'm going to going to be mining with my CPU as well.
Vasilije Perovic (7 months ago)
because you will be earning pennies, even with the latest ryzen and i7. Might as well get shit cpu and another gpu
Cryptomined (7 months ago)
well you cant use the "latest intel coffee lake cpus" .. but sure you dont have to use a celeron, if you want to mine with yor CPU, get an i7 by all means... helps in the future if you want to keep your components, you will have a more usable desktop/htpc, or whatever you use it for. note, this board requires 6th or 7th gen CPUs (any)

What are these molex power connectors for?
PancakesRan (8 months ago)
to power all the pci-e slots because there is so many
fernando aragon (1 year ago)
What CPU is best running what OS?? Thank you!!
Firez (9 months ago)
fernando aragon Honestly I think the Intel Celeron G3930 because its about 50$ and works with the TB250.
Kris Efland (1 year ago)
What BIOS settings are needed to get this working with 6x1070?
Firez (9 months ago)
Kris Efland Make sure you have mining mode on and updated the bios.

I have acess this motherboard GIGABYTE GA-H110M-H DDR4, LGA 1151 MICRO ATX, INTEL H110, i can use this for 6 gpus...

hi im looking at ordering this setup from your website but i have important question.. i herd the new intel cpu's only support windows 10 is this true? i will not be running windows 10. i will be running linux or win8.1 ? you advice would be much appreciated
miner x101 (1 year ago)
thanks just bought a full setup from your store mb cpu ram ssd risers case thanks for the amazing service
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
I have added the answer to the NOTE in the item description. Thanks for reminding me.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
Hi, thanks for checking out the store. The 7th gen kaby lake processors only support win10 (and linux). The 6th gen skylake processors support previous versions of windows such as 7 and 8/8.1. Both Skylake and Kabylake can be used with this TB250 board (250 or 270 chipsets). What i have in the package is the skylake celeron, which supports all versions of windows, and it is for that reason why I used it (and its slightly cheaper than the kaby lake version). You can run linux on either kabylake or skylake processors, but the processor in my package will support win8.1. Where if i had used a kabylake, it would not have supported win8.1. I like the freedom of being able to switch OS's in the future, even to an older OS such as 7 or 8.1 and again, is the main reason why that processor was put into my build. I mention this in my build video also :) so no worries, you will be good to go with win8.1 Thanks for asking, its a good question. Many people may not realize kabylake does not support older versions of windows. Very mean for microsoft to force win10 on people due to low usage of win10... they should have a better means of getting people to upgrade and not force them.

Hi, is it possible to get working 8 cards using this motherboard? Thanks
PancakesRan (8 months ago)
it advertises 6 cards
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
I have not tried

BIOSTAR Z270GT6 LGA 1151 this card is better that yours ?,
Hi, do you know anything about this mobo? BIOSTAR Z270GT6 LGA 1151
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
its a nice looking board, i have thought about buying one, you can probably get 7 or maybe even 8 cards working with it.
adrianmeneses (1 year ago)
hello my friend thantk you for your videos in youtube. It makes me want to buil a rig for my self, I saw varios configurations of rig and I cant decide wich one of them to take, couuld you please recomend me a full especification like mother board, gpus, power supliers, how many risers, wich hard drive, and ram. my budget is over 3000$. and where I live the electricity and internet its free. Thank you very much and when I have all the pieces I will send you a hole video. some pieces I wold purchase from your store
adrianmeneses (1 year ago)
I want to choose the same parts, bit it doesnt say wich power supplier did you use, and if its posible I want to and one more gpu
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
sure I can help you pick out parts for your rig, I have put my rig specifications in the description of hte TB250 build. if you want to choose other parts email me at [email protected] and let me know where you do your online shopping - or I can get you mostly everything except GPU.
Eugene CCNP (1 year ago)
This mobo is a beauty, I love it! I just might have to get another one from www.cryptomined.com since they are all out everywhere!
Eugene CCNP (1 year ago)
You can't sleep now! Crypto ain't going to mine by itself, oh wait, yes it will :p
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
:) going to order in the TB350 also Been up all night, so maybe ill get some sleep and order it tonight
Andrey Bilous (1 year ago)
It seems the board is pretty nice for mining. I've spoken to Buistar and no changes to buy any btc models from Biostar untill the Jul. at least in Europe
Thomas Tachelet (1 year ago)
@andry bilous check ebay i bought the same motherboard 3 weeks a go on ebay for €150
Thomas Tachelet (1 year ago)
@cryptomined is there something wrong with your page i used the contact sheet to ask a question for changing the shipment options last week when i placed an order on your website... the subject was Order #1450 can you please reply thank you
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
check cryptomined.com :D you will be surprised what you find I dont have them in stock, but I can be a middle man, buy it for you and get it to you.
Pavneet Singh (1 year ago)
I'm ready to mine Ethereum, I purchased six Nitro+ RX480's and an MSI Z270a Pro motherboard, I've not opened it yet, I read online that Skylake has issues detecting GPU's which intel processor do you recommend for this board and GPU?
Pavneet Singh (1 year ago)
Thanku so much. I was gonna go for Kaby lake but will get a Skylake today. Which Risers do u reckon for Z270a pro - it has 3 PciE x16 and 3x1 ports?
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
its not the processor that has limits, its the z170 and b150 chipsets that have limitations. you can mix Skylake and B250 or Z270, it will work. I have B250 + skylake G3900 and it works fine for 6 cards... no need to go kaby lake - as kaby lake forces you to install windows 10 (though you will probably install windows 10 anyways, its nice to have that freedom to install windows 7 and 8, and you dont want to support microsoft in their lie that only windows 10 will work with kaby lake.. a self-fulfilling lie i guess) Nitro 480s are fine... if you live in very hot climate, becareful of hte thermal tape between the backplate and the PCB as it can melt when in heavy use for a long time at high temps. for that reason I recommend XFX, but if you cant get XFX.. use whatever 400 series you can get - do NOT get 500 series cards.
Pohodacik 007 (1 year ago)
can be used for rig this MB? MSI B250 Krait GAMING https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B250-KRAIT-GAMING.html#productFeature-section - have everything necessary ?
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
cool, sorry, we got a storm last night and it knocked out my internet... then I fell asleep :P
Pohodacik 007 (1 year ago)
resolved - drivers for AMD rx 470 - naw OK
Pohodacik 007 (1 year ago)
today i try to conetct 2. rx 470 in old pc and miner (Zeac, xmr) cry - "No AMD cards in the list." any idea what to do? Thanks
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
I will be using 4X sata risers ver 007, and 2x molex risers ver 006 4 of https://cryptomined.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_215&products_id=199 2 of these these https://cryptomined.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_4&products_id=1
Pohodacik 007 (1 year ago)
what typ of PCI-E Risers recommended you for this MB ? for rx 470...
Stefano Bozzi (1 year ago)
I never liked Biostar motherboards, for 110$ i prefer to get an Asrock z97 anniversary
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
Stefano Bozzi (1 year ago)
This will be my first mining build, i am excited :). Where can i contact you so we can talk in private?
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
cool, yeah i was lucky my G3900 cost pretty much the same as a G1840 so I just went with the tb250
Stefano Bozzi (1 year ago)
Nope, i got that tb85 you suggest me. The tb250 looks better but i would had to spend 12$ more and the socket is 1151
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
yeah i prefer gigabyte and msi. so you ended up getting the tb250?
He Adalbert (1 year ago)
Sorry for bother you,whats its price ?
PancakesRan (8 months ago)
right now its $85 not even on sale
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
I paid over 110$, I see it selling for up to 150$ now, its in high demand and selling for above the MSRP. FOr 150$ I can get them for people... I'm thinking about getting some extras to sell. should I? or is it too expensive?
Hi Expert! ! Mayby You know how to fix problem with Rx 570/580 rig where windows 10 see only 5 cards and with 6th is resetting? I have this problem on over 2 MotherBoards.
Ok, great - lets check it out! My team is also working on it.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
I am actually not sure how to fix that, but I have been busy the last 2-3 days and I need to read some threads at bitcointalk about it. I will read more about it tomorrow and let you know anything I find out.. I tried 5X480 + 570, and 5X480 +580 and it would not work, only say 4 or 5 GPU
John Smith (1 year ago)
I've been using this board for 2 weeks after my H81 died. When I try to connect more than 4 RX 470s, both Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.04 kernel panics on boot.
John Smith (1 year ago)
I used DriveDroid on my phone to boot Windows and Ubuntu. By default Ubuntu installed in legacy BIOS mode instead of UEFI.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
weird. I finally got UEFI windows to install, had to use rufus to create the USB stick with windows on it... wqas using pendrivelinux universalUSBinstaller but the board did not like universalUSBinstaller... used rufus and no problem. but im using an M.2 and not using a tradition HDD or SSD 2.5 inch. I also had to update bios to get 6 cards to work... just 3 would work without the update (i figure 3 of the cards were pre-modded so those were the ones not working)... as Eugene here on youtube said all 6 worked with the initial bios.
John Smith (1 year ago)
I tried installing Windows 7 and 10 multiple times which would boot but wouldn't see my hard drive.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
how about installing windows in UEFI mode? bios can see my efi usb with windows on it.. but it wont boot.,.. really irritating,.. gonna have to call biostar tomorrow and as WTF. i know hte windows efi works cause its what i use on all my systems
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
cool, ill probably build mine tomorrow or monday, have all the parts and GPU's now.
Another excellant review. So, how is the Biostar TB250 working out? Is it a set it and forget it Mining motherboard like its little brother the Biostar TB85, or have you found it to be better or worse, or any quirks that we need to know about?
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
yeah i think so, and a lot depends on what happens with bitcoin and if it forks this year i guess
i would think there will be some setbacks in the price but the more general awareness of cryptocoins within the worlds population is why coins will skyrocket to unbelievable values so its very important to mine as much as we can now.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
zcash is trying to get past 100$ right now, incredible
haha....well i sure hope deepinthemines get those Biostar TB85's in soon and shipped out because i have been waiting all this month to finish building 8 to 9 more rigs as I could see the price on ethereum and bitcoin starting to explode up its hard to watch them go up in value and know im missing out on some serious income right now.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
its ok i say fuck all the time, no need to censor here lol

Hello, congratulations on the channel. Would you help me ? I want to set up my mining company with 3 RX 470 but there are 3 models, which would you tell me? Can I use this motherboard: MSI Motherboard for Intel LGA 1150 ATX B85-G43 GAMING? Is it worth making this investment being paid here in Brazil $ 0.18 kw / h? THANK YOU
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
which 470 models are you looking at? 470 4g is the best value. im not sure about that motherboard, but if it has 3 pcie slots it should be fine. 18 cents per kw/h is a little expensive, might still be profitable now but its more risky. You should check at whattomine.com. there is a selector for 470 on the page, enter in 3 and click on 470 (make sure its red) and unclick any of the other GPUs (280x is default on, turn it off... ) .,.. enter in your 18 cents kw/h into the electric cost and click update It will show you your profit for today
Muhammad Nabil Hazwan (1 year ago)
do you have new set up for mining 2017 detail
Muhammad Nabil Hazwan (1 year ago)
tq so much, how about the riser any riser? or specified?
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
my details are in the description and I will update after it is built: The build specs are: Motherboard: Biostar TB250-BTC Pro CPU: Skylake G3900 Celeron + stock intel cooler Ram: Micron 4G 2400 DDR4 GPU: 6X XFX RX480 8G SSD: Galaxy 128GB M.2 PSU: EVGA 1300G2 Frame/Case: Undecided

where did you buy? please tell me
PancakesRan (8 months ago)
you can get it on newegg or amazon
Vladan Ivic (1 year ago)
So what are the TWO molex connectors on the mb for? Do you not need to power the risers if you power those 2?
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
yup that will do it, or firewall rules, but if hte standard start batch worked, its not hte firewall... ok cool :) i dont have to check your batch , now I can finish waking up. Get a ledger Nano-S... its totally totally worth it. piece of mind and ease of access to your coins. I mine ethereum and zcash straight to my ledger nano S
copied wrong batch file info and left off 3 numbers on my ether address. Just user errors, im not great at batch files thank goodness for your instructional video saved my ass.
Vladan Ivic yes I just copied the wrong pool info and cut off the last 3 digits of my address once I fixed that it opened right up and just got done changing over my 5 rigs and my one gpu in my desktop . Now I just have to get used to working with the ether wallet and how to exchange it to btc so I can pay my electric bills ha
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
cool, you got your batch file working? just woke up and saw your comment and email,... i take a few hours to REALLY wake up though so was going to check and try out your batch command in a bit after I really wake up... probably after another coffee and bath LOL... but you got it working right? what was the error?
ok glad its working well for you, deepinthemines says they are just waiting on the truck already gave me a tracking number for my Biostar TB85 boards cant wait to get them all going and especially now that i know how to connect to ethermine.org and mine ether myself. I sure wish they had an apple app that you can see all of your stats rather than just an android app. when im at work all day i really need to see whats going on.

Crypto Blogger (1 year ago)
Hey bro, good video, i think is a great motherboard to mining , buuut, is so hard to find xD what you think of the GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-GAMING 6 or the MSI Z97 GAMING 5 is good to mining with 7 rx480 8GB, need some bios settings?
Crypto Blogger (1 year ago)
lol thanks, and what you say about the z97 gaming 5?
Enrique Dos Santos (1 year ago)
I dont recommend z170 chipsets for mining they are a NIGHTMARE to set up, stick with the old and trustworthy till the new options arrive, (im hoping for an AMD AM4 socket proccessor under 50$ at some point, ANY am4 6 slots board should work flawlessly but the proccessors are still to expensive, no budget option yet)
H270-Plus намного ЛУЧШЕ !!!
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
the asus boards look good too, asus Z270-AR looks nice also with 7 slots, and Biostar Z270GT6 also very nice board, but more costly than H270-Plus or the Biostar TB250-BTC... but a big difference between the TB250 and H270 is that the TB250 has molex power on the motherboard for miners who do not use powered risers.
мне тоже пох...
ты обусловься, МСИ либо Асус все таки? кого в топку кидать? P.S. Твои иероглифы обладатель канала не осознает, ему похуй.
Crypto Cr (1 year ago)
Great video man! Too bad this board is so hard to get. Would you eventually create a video on the fact that ETH is going to POS and how that will affect GPU mining. Thanks!
Crypto Cr (1 year ago)
Thanks bud! Lets hope for the best. I also think diversifying types of mining investments is important due to that. Meaning maybe a bitcoin miner here n there + a lite coin miner maybe even a Dash miner. Even better would be to invest a portion the current mined earnings into a trader service or ICO's for the next 12 months are going to be interesting.
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
well im not sure how its all going to go down after POS... i have some ideas of what could happen... I think it really depends on how the markets react once ETH goes to POS... does ETH increase dramatically in value? does some of the value spread to other altcoins? will that spread help with the increase in difficulty of mining other altcoins? or will the markets fail to adjust to mining profitability and mining become unfeasible for anyone without free electricity. for me its an exciting wait, and I hope for the best... strong ETH price might create a stronger altcoin market... but maybe not... we will have to wait and see.

I got mine on newegg
Cryptomined (1 year ago)
its almost impossible to get right now, i dont know any place that has it in stock outside of china, and even in china if you can find it, its marked up a lot form the MSRP. what country are you in?
Mainchain (1 year ago)
I use itx-server motherboards which has got 3x16pcie slots and 1x16slot, got 3 for free at work as they are old and outdated but they work really good.

It is weird how they work so well, but Im not complaining :P
