Mining issues with 3 x Sapphire 7950 (5 LTC Bounty if ...

Should I build a second rig, or sell off spare parts?

I recently got back into GPU mining after running a litecoin rig back in 2013 (wish I'd held onto those 76 Litecoins... or even the 2.6 bitcoins I turned them into). After try to get the old rig back up and running with a couple of older cards (a 7950 and a 5830), I ran into all kinds of driver problems and decided to build out a new rig with an existing 1000W power supply, a SSD I had laying around, my old ram sticks, and an old CPU I had for testing. About the only new things I bought were a Biostar TB85 mobo, 6x 1060 6GBs (the AORUS ones), and risers. I got it all set up on one of those three-tier racks you can buy at Fred Meyers or Wal-Mart and about 7,000 zip ties.
Currently the 1060 rig is set up on mph with nemosminer. I started with MinerGate but it's a bit too opaque for my tastes.
However after all that I'm still left with another spare 750 Watt power supply, a Gigabyte Z97X-SLI mobo, and an extra stick of 8GB DDR3 Ram. I'm trying to convince myself not to build another rig. Should I sell off these parts, or should I grab a CPU, 4 more GPUS, risers, and pop together another rig?

[Weekly Spotlight] This week's updates, rig pics, and misc links!

Welcome to the first ever Weekly spotlight!

Hello fellow miners! We're opening up a segment we call the Weekly Spotlight, where we pool together some key topics. All of our sources will be linked :)
Because this is the first spotlight segment, we'll go over more than what's been happening in the past week. We'll be covering things since the beginning of time. Let's get started.

New wiki entries!

Our wiki is linked in the sidebar, and is under constant development. We've got 6 pages so far, so I'll go ahead and just Copy + Paste the Table of Contents (pages and sub-pages).
As always, if you have any suggestions, or want to contribute, message the mods!

We have a new tagging system!

For the mods!
  • [MOD POST] Greenifies title text. Used for general announcements.
  • [NEW RULE] Orangifies title text. Used for announcing a new rule.
  • [Weekly Spotlight] Yellowifies title text. Used to draw attention to the spotlight!
For everyone!
  • [Guide] Bright-purpleifies title text. Used for bringing attention to your guide.
  • [Pool Launched] Tuquoises title text. Used to promote your pool.
Keep in mind that (to my knowledge) it's only possible to tag posts via targetting the href, so it's best that you tag a self post. If you need to link to your guide, do so from there.

We have an IRC channel!

You can see it towards the bottom of the sidebar.
Gathering from the times I've been in the room, it's pretty active. Chilling and live Q&A. Come pop in sometime!

Difficulty up from ~90 to ~480 since the creation of this sub!

Sorry guys.
But hey, there's a bright side! Litecoin's value has rocketed to 6x the amount, so your profitability in $$$ should be slightly higher than before. Also, according to, the next difficulty adjustment should bring difficulty down about 80 points. According to, litecoin mining is at 130% profitability compared to bitcoin mining.

Now for entertainment, rig pics!

We have a couple...interesting...cooling solutions.
