4x Radeon HD 7990 Mining Monster Rig (8 GPUs)

Cryptocurrency is a type of digital currency that is based on cryptography. Cryptocurrency uses cryptography for security, making it difficult to counterfeit. Public and private keys are often used to transfer the currency from one person to another.

Cryptocurrency is considered a counter-culture movement related to cypherpunks, who advocate the use of cryptography as a route to social and political change. Cryptocurrency presents a form of this movement in that it is essentially a fiat currency, which means it only has value if people agree to such and use it as a medium of exchange. However, because it is not tied to any country, its value cannot be affected by a central bank. In the case of Bitcoin, the most prominent functioning example of cryptocurrency, its value is determined by supply and demand in the market. As such, this currency behaves much like gold and other precious metals.

It’s time to break some records!

Today I bought Corsair Vengeance 16GB Quad Channel DDR3 Memory Kit and decide to break some benchmark records. I’m not using Liquid Nitroge only water cooler with custom fans.
It will be really hard to get to the Top 20 Resultshwbot.org

Before we look at the numbers, let’s take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on Windows 8 Pro 64-bit operating system.

Good optimization is key to success – it’s over 64GB/s !
