    Ben, thanks for the article. You mention that you’ve also used the TB250-BTC, which for me has been a very stable and basically plug and play-type of board. Is there a reason you prefer the ASUS Z270-A/P boards?

      Thanks for reading. I think it’s just a comfort issue. There were issues with the rig I built for the TB250 and it kind of left a bad taste in my mouth. The idea for the article came from a friend who shared the same experiences as you. He kind of looked at me like I had two heads when I told him I preferred the ASUS boards, so I figured it would be beneficial to share. I am planning builds with the TB250s to get out of my comfort zone!

    Hey Ben, I used both M.2 slots and have 9ea. 1080’s running nicehash on widows at the moment. I had to manually set my virtual memory to about 48,000 max to get it to stop having memory allocation errors. I see a lot of people recommend setting it to 30,000 but I think that’s only for 6 card miners.
    Looking forward to your ELI5 version of Ehos.

    Hey, I see a lot of similarities in my Asus H97Plus motherboard BIOS. Ofc it’s older but still has 2 PCIe and it’s enough for me for the moment. My question is: can I operate and try to build my own rig with a H97Plus MB like mine?

    I can’t find any specifics for mining config for this MB, so im a bit confused about the Gen2 setting because I’ve seen some saying to set it on Gen1 (GPU damage risk?)

    This works for Z270E as well. Just follow instructions for 270A. Following these instructions was the only way I could get HiveOS stable. Thanks for the info.

    If anyone using this board installs SQRL Acorns, be sure to change the Onboard Device > m.2_2 settings to X4
