Cool, what GPU's are you mining with? I was interested in buying a GPU rig but i went with baikal.
Just using some random GPUs I had from old builds or that I got for free from work.
Mostly mining x11 coins. Have been mining and buying small amounts of Monero since last year.

Baikal cube looks really cool. Someone I talked to on bitcointalk said he expects an ROI of about 6 months mining Dash.
Thats really impressive if its true. Even if it took a year to get your money back thats an amazing investment.

well 8 months ago burst was 30 sats...today 250 sats...steady growth...real business sell on the burst asset exchange and of course some scam ones so anyone reading this should due their due diligence before investing...burst is a interesting coin...its capable of cross chain transfers and smart contracts...it has alot going for it...strong community...so time will tell but i like to diversify
BURST is definitely a cool coin. They have a really well developed project. I'm surprised its not more popular actually. The all-in-one wallet/ miner is a nice thing to have and the Asset Exchange is cool. Glad to see people are using low-energy ways to generate coins.
I've been impressed by everything they have done. Team seems very professional and trying to build a long-term project, not just some pump and dump scheme.

Yeah, and i got free electricity so i except to ROI faster :P But not aiming to be most profitable, will mine much altcoins and such, more low valued, just to have them :D Also the cube eats very little amount of power, like 90w for the 300mh/s

Currently Im just using some extra GPUs I have to mine a couple X11 coins, nothing major.
Definitely interested to hear your results if you get a Baikal cube. I saw them advertised but haven't talked to anyone that was running one.

Haha! OK still learning how the site works. Did not realize this thread was under the main mining forum.

You will do good with the Baikals. Just do not expect to become the X11 millionaire anytime soon. :-) Good stable miners with low power draw.
I mine with anything I have available. CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs...
I mine intermitently since running on solar. Concerning coins, I would go for the one I like and/or also for the profitable ones to exchange for the ones I like. Not in love with any particular chain. Functionality, expectations for a particular coin or profit drives my mining. I also read a lot. Information is 75-90% of your success.

Make and model? You may try to substitute the fans with bigger, more efficient ones(more silent), slow them switching to lower power (9V instead of 12 if the fans allow) and venting with an auxiliary home fan which is silent and draws heath out of the electronics quicker by moving the air around. I guess you thinked about it already.
