Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Blockchain ...

Want to upgrade my PC, would like advice

Hi all,
I built my current PC for ~£600 about five years ago, so its starting to get a bit outdated and occasionally laggy. I'm looking to upgrade but I don't know where to start!
I think I want to be upgrading my GPU and SSD, but I'm not sure if this would mean that I need up update my mobo/psu/cooler too. If something else is the bottleneck here, or you need any other information, please let me know!
My current setup looks like this: PCPartPicker Part List

Advice? Going a bit insane.

I have a simple set-up I've been trying to get running stable for about a week now. I have 2x nVIDIA GTX 980 and 2x Radeon 29 280X cards that I want to use.
I have previously used just the GTX 980s and they were stable for weeks. I recently acquired the 280s, and while I can't be certain, I think the cards are not at issue.
I also had two of the 980s and one 280 running in my desktop stable for quite some time, just as a tester. But for the actual mining rig, I was using old AMD AM3-based hardware. And I've had nothing but problems. Murphy's law.
First, I had a motherboard go out (ASUS M4A87TD EVO.) Luckily I had a spare. But the ASUS board had two native PCI-E x16 slots (one running at x1 speed,) and so I had been running the 980s both in the motherboard, and was using this riser extender to run the other cards, with molex->SATA risers (I don't have enough native 4-pin connectors to run without molex to SATA adapters.)
The "new" board (which is actually chronologically older and older tech) is a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H. It's also socket AM3 but only supports DDR2 memory; luckily I had old DDR2 available. This board also only has one x16 slot, so I am running 3 GPUs outside of the chassis with x16 risers.
It turns out after some nightmare of troubleshooting that one of the DDR2 DIMMs is probably bad. I don't have a replacement at the moment, but I've tried running everything with one DIMM.
I also have Virtual Memory (swap/page file) set to 16GB. I don't know why this is necessary, but other people mention it and NiceHash wouldn't let me run 4 cards without it.
Anyway, all works "fine;" I have the 280s set to 850MHz core clock and +20 power with 100% fans, and 100% fans and native clock on the 980s.
But I keep getting crashes. Before I had freezes, so I also changed out power supplies several times and tried everything you can think of. I don't think the issue is down to power any more, but I'm open to correction if anyone has a suggestion or tip.
For power, I'm using a 3 to 1 ATX-24 pin adapter, with a SeaSonic 620W as the master, and a Corsair 550W as the "slave." The SeaSonic powers the motherboard and the ATX12V for the CPU. It also powers the 3 SATA to molex adapters for the x16 risers, and the 8+6 pin PCI-E power connectors for the 280s.
The Corsair powers the HDD (this I have also suspected of causing problems but I have swapped HDDs and had the same issues, and I really need to get an SSD for this thing,) two 120mm intake fans, two 140mm exhaust fans, and the 6 pin PCI-E connectors for the 980s.
It doesn't seem to freeze anymore. It will mine just fine for a while but eventually I will get a BSOD, usually saying that the device driver has gone into an infinite loop. I believe this is the Crimson driver (I am using version 15.12.)
I've swapped CPUs and memory and HDDs and motherboards and I'm just almost at my wits' end about to tear my hair out trying to get this thing to run stably. I most likely just need to get all new mainboard/CPU/memory, but I can't do that at the moment, so I am looking for any advice/help I can get.
I would assume the driver is going into an infinite loop because it's polling hardware and not getting the response it expects or something like that, which could indicate a power or heat issue, but I don't know. And I've searched for the BSOD error and 90% of the results for "device driver went into an infinite loop" (paraphrasing) were related to AMD Crimson drivers. So that's been where my suspicion has been so far, and I've had other problems with getting the AMD stuff to work when I was initially setting it up. (And had problems with AMD/ATi drivers going back 20 years, ugh.)
So.. Any advice?
TL;DR: Running 2x GTX 980 and 2x R9 280X; keep getting BSOD about device driver going into an infinite loop after some time mining. Want to stab myself.

I tried following this guide to flash but the program has some bug in it every time I try it messes up. I've opened up the computer and looked at all the connections and they are set.
Provide any additional details you wish below.
The GPU was preowned, they used it for bitcoin mining briefly, I'm not sure what they did with its settings like overclocking since I don't know much about that and I am not able to reach them either. I also looked at MSI afterburner to see if it was maybe overheating, but it seemed to just be getting up to 47c so I don't think that is the issue either.

[CANADA-BC] [H] Crypto Currency Mining Enclosure and hardware FULL setup sale [W] $ or Bitcoin

I own a crypto currency mining investment company and I'm selling off the current hardware setup. It has been in use since mid-March of 2014. I've had a series of unfortunate events occur in my personal life that require me to sell off my business's hardware and other personal items.
This is for a firm priced sale, I am looking for a buyer that is either wanting to get into the mining business and wants a GPU based setup that can tackle all the new algorithms VS ASIC based setups that go obsolete within months and have no resale value. Or a buyer that wants to expand their mining farm or mining business and would love a plug-n-play type setup where the only thing they are required to do is have one power feed wired into their warehouse or home panel. This would be for local pickup only most likely. It will require the buyer to have a truck or to rent a u-haul type of moving truck. The system is roughly 60 inches tall by 95 inches long by 24 inches wide, not sure on its weight but moveable if the cards are removed(the cards are designed to be plug-n-play as well, no screws, just pop out pop in.) and runs at 240v for PC hardware and 120v for fans/misc regular appliance plugins(routers/switches etc).
The enclosure houses 8 systems which consist of 46 R9 280x video cards (it has room for expansion), has its own built in surge protection system to withstand lightning and other outside-the-enclosure based surges, whole system runs at 240v for best efficiency, has a 100amp breaker panel which is attached to the enclosure for maximum expansion.
The enclosure has 6x20 inch box fans which provide the 24/7 constant air flow for the video cards. I have two other 20 inch box fans that are for in and out airflow for fresh air circulation. All video cards are easy to access and can easily add or remove cards to/from the unit. I built the enclosure design in-house.
Serious inquiries ONLY, I have priced this as fair market price for used hardware among the enclosure costs which include the power panel, surge protection, cable runs, professional electrical hardware/electrician fees etc. This is a full plug and play type enclosure setup for any mining farm out there. Originally built for $33000~, I'm strictly selling it at a fair hardware priced value with cutting out a lot of the fee's that you would have to pay for an electrician to wire up your own custom enclosure and the electrical hardware. Cash or Bitcoins only.
Asking $15000 Canadian firm. Also I am located around Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

[Build Help] Not sure which GPU to pick

Hey there folks, my friend has essentially given away to me his pc and I am happy with all the specs apart from the graphics cards, so I am looking to upgrade them (2GB Radeon 6950s in crossfire). I have a budget of £200 but I could be flexible and stretch it to around 230ish if its worth it. I am not too knowledgeable about PC's now a days so I am in need of some help. I should mention I am looking to do some hardcore gaming and play most of the new upcoming games at high/ultra setting.... if possbile :)
Here are the specs
-ASUS® P8Z68-V PRO: USB 3.0, SATA 6GB/s, NVIDIA®SLI™, ATI®CrossFireX™
-CORSAIR 850W ENTHUSIAST SERIES™ TX850 V2-80 PLUS® BRONZE
-Intel® Core™i5-2500k Quad Core (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache) + HD Graphics
-I cant find what brand and everything the RAM was but its 8GB ram
I wont be changing any of those specs, but I think its enough to run the newer graphics cards?
I was looking at some pricing and it seems my options are a gtx 770 or a r9 280x ? My friend mentioned possible a used 290 but I am afraid most of those would be used for bitcoin mining and would leave the card damaged maybe? Also I am not sure what all this business is with mantle and should I prioritise an amd card?
I saw this card for £230 and it seems good I think but I have no idea what brands are good for the video cards and it confused me seeing the same card clocked at different speeds and with cooling options. Even when I do pick a card I am not sure which brand to get any links and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any and all help :)

[Build Help] $1500 gamer, multi-screen capability, with some scryptcoin mining/protein folding/video editing on the side

I tried this in /buildapcforme and didn't get any response, but I don't think I need help from scratch since I already have an idea of what I want in terms of parts, so here's a shortened copypaste:
Uses:
Budget: As cheap as possible. I'll go over no more than $2000 if need be for the triple-monitor capability.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
If there's any specific features you want/need from the rig, please list them.
Do you have any specific case preferences such as a window or LEDs, or do you have a preference for low-noise components?

With that build, what are your thoughts on the 2x R9 280x's? I'm having trouble finding comparable benchmarks, other than this which only compares it to lower-scoring GPUs. I see them as providing a fair amount of number crunching capability (aka mining), as well as being still top-of-the-line graphics for gaming. I probably shouldn't concern myself with mining if I can get a better performance out of games with a single GPU for less $.
I've never SLI'd or CF'd and everywhere I see it mentioned, I notice people have problems with it or that it doesn't always work. What should I know about multi-GPU setups?
I notice a lot of budget builds use an AMD CPU. How much can I expect out of the 4770k over a similar AMD cpu like the FX-9590 or 8350 (a much cheaper one), aside from the marginal chance in benchmark scores?
I could save getting a cheaper PSU probably.
I live near a Microcenter. I'm guessing their prices are lower for pickups.
Sorry for the long post. I hope it doesn't scare anyone off! I'm just not going to drop $1,500 without properly educating myself first.
Thanks!

[SG] Stable 2.6 MH/s Scrypt Mining Rig

Photo Gallery - http://imgur.com/a/z9Wka#0
Your looking at a complete scrypt mining rig which mines or creates altcoins. This mining rig will create cryptocurrency such as Litecoin, Dogecoin, and more.
Currently selling this mining rig at 2100 USD which is a lot less than what I paid for the entire thing brand new. It has been mining dogecoin/litecoin/etc for 3 weeks and it turns out after my electric bill + summer time coming soon it will not be profitable for me as I pay .14 cents a kilowatt.
The mining rig was restarted every Friday for basic dusting and maintenance and purs like a kitten. Price is negotiable depending on the drive your willing to make to Dallas TX (PM for Location). The rig has been in my garage and has always had temps of 76-78 or lower.
One thing about this setup is you don't have to do a thing but sign up for the pool you want, type in your username/pass and your mining within minutes. No Setup required as i've gotten the perfect settings for each card on the rig. I've also placed each card to get maximum airflow without pulling heat from neighboring cards, henced the 280x angled upward to pull cooler air.
It is also setup to automatically reboot and start mining on it's own in case of a power outage. I can also disable this feature as that is what I prefer to do. I like manually starting my rig once a week to make sure things are running flawless.
These cards have all been undervolted, overclocked, and set up to be the most efficient and fast at what they do. Stability is key with mining cryptocurrency and I can proudly say this 2.6 MH/s mining rig has run a week at a time before I manually restart it to dust it. You can choose to let it mine tirelessly for as long as you want but I recommend dusting it often. I'm sure this baby can mine for months without being touched.
All or most hardware has original boxes.
Complete Scrypt Mining Rig With Aluminum Frame + Box Fan:
GPU's:
This does not come with a keyboard, monitor, or a mouse. I run this thing headless and directly remote in using splashtop so I have control of my rig wherever i'm at using my macbook.
I am willing to ship the rig taken apart in 1 Huge Box with all original boxes inside + hardware if you pay the shipping. It will be carefully packed and sent via UPS, you can also add insurance which will also be paid by you.
You can also meet me or come take a look at the rig if your interested, i'm located in Dallas Tx. PM me for exact address and phone number if interested.
I will accept Chase Instant Pay, Dogecoin, Bitcoin, or Litecoin.
I will not sell the rig in parts it's buy all or nothing.
Note: As you can see I have two instances of SGminer running, the mining program I use. This is because I use different settings for the Sapphire 280x's and different intensity/thread concurrency settings for the R9 versions of the cards which are the 290x/270.

$2500 if paid with Bitcoin. I'd most preferably take Bitcoin, as that'd result in me giving you the best price possible since theres NO FEES. Don't buy it through eBay, they charge out the rear in fees. If you want to go that route, let's do PayPal. Send me a message!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=131147816958
I'm pasting the description from eBay:
7 GPU mining rig in a custom aluminum structure that I built. Pushes as much as 3.4MH/s but I'll ship it at about 3+MH/s to give you something reliable to start on.
I URGE you to read my Reddit threads and dig into the comments for a great deal of information about this rig. You may see me mentioning a Semphron 145 processor- that thing was terrible and made the rig unstable so I upgraded it to a AMD FX-6300 6-core 3.5GHz processor and the now rig screams. Massive difference with a high-end processor. Runs games on ultra/max settings, obviously ;)

http://www.reddit.com/dogemining/comments/1vp6aj/wall_mounted_34mhps_7x_gpu_dogecoin_rig_2x_r9/
I want to throw in a newbish disclaimer. I must impress upon you the fact that this is a mining rig running Linux. If you're not good with computers then mining might not be for you. I don't care if you've upgraded your own RAM or hard drive one time, that means nothing. You need to be proficient with computers to own a mining rig running Linux. Most of the dirty work is done with this rig. It's been running SMOOTH for months now.
I'll ship it to where you can plug it in and it will automatically turn on and start mining in Linux. It will also have Windows installed, but you'll have to do a little legwork getting the drivers installed to run all 7 video cards- I wasn't interested in Windows mining so I didn't bother getting the 7th going- I got 6 video cards mining in Windows. The drivers have come out to make all 7 work but like I said- Linux mining works fine for me.
As with any rig, we're pushing these cards to the limit. You'll have to check on the rig periodically to make sure cgminer is not reporting any SICK/DEAD cards. That's normal, as with any mining rig the cards can hang or overheat and protect themselves by shutting off. You'd still be mining on all the other cards, only that one card drops offline. All mining rigs do this when you're pushing max hashrate.
I like to use the Belkin WeMo to remotely monitor my wattage, if it drops below a threshold I know I've got a dropped card and I can reset the rig remotely, it automatically boots back up and starts mining again. There's other options like CGwatcher that are pretty slick, but I've found what works for me and I'll stick to it.
It can be run fairly quiet. I ran it with no external cooling fans for a while successfully at about 3.2MH/s. I since threw some fans back on it since I don't like keeping the AC on all day and its warming up outside. Fans are included.
I offer support. I want to see my creation keep digging for a long time, that said I'll support you in getting it started back up in its new home. Check my Reddit threads for references, I know damned well what I'm talking about and I'll see to it that you get up and running.
I'm not accepting returns on this rig. Its sold as-is. Because these are sensitive electronic components, I can't be responsible for your damaging it. Its a tough well built rig, I assure you. It will work 100% when I shut it down, it should work 100% when you receive it.
Before buying or bidding I HIGHLY SUGGEST you drop me a message so we can sort out the details and make sure that this is the right rig for you!
I did the parts breakdown up on PC parts picker and it came up pretty fair. Note that their price does not include assembly labor, setup and tuning, or love and affection :)

[WTS] [New Orleans] [H] 7x GPU Scrypt Mining Rig 3-3.4MH/s [W] PayPal , Bitcoin

Physical timestamp Pics
$2500 if paid with Bitcoin. I'd most preferably take Bitcoin, as that'd result in me giving you the best price possible since theres NO FEES. Don't buy it through eBay, they charge out the rear in fees. If you want to go that route, let's do PayPal. Send me a message!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=131147816958
I'm pasting the description from eBay:
7 GPU mining rig in a custom aluminum structure that I built. Pushes as much as 3.4MH/s but I'll ship it at about 3+MH/s to give you something reliable to start on.
I URGE you to read my Reddit threads and dig into the comments for a great deal of information about this rig. You may see me mentioning a Semphron 145 processor- that thing was terrible and made the rig unstable so I upgraded it to a AMD FX-6300 6-core 3.5GHz processor and the now rig screams. Massive difference with a high-end processor. Runs games on ultra/max settings, obviously ;)

http://www.reddit.com/dogemining/comments/1vp6aj/wall_mounted_34mhps_7x_gpu_dogecoin_rig_2x_r9/
I want to throw in a newbish disclaimer. I must impress upon you the fact that this is a mining rig running Linux. If you're not good with computers then mining might not be for you. I don't care if you've upgraded your own RAM or hard drive one time, that means nothing. You need to be proficient with computers to own a mining rig running Linux. Most of the dirty work is done with this rig. It's been running SMOOTH for months now.
I'll ship it to where you can plug it in and it will automatically turn on and start mining in Linux. It will also have Windows installed, but you'll have to do a little legwork getting the drivers installed to run all 7 video cards- I wasn't interested in Windows mining so I didn't bother getting the 7th going- I got 6 video cards mining in Windows. The drivers have come out to make all 7 work but like I said- Linux mining works fine for me.
As with any rig, we're pushing these cards to the limit. You'll have to check on the rig periodically to make sure cgminer is not reporting any SICK/DEAD cards. That's normal, as with any mining rig the cards can hang or overheat and protect themselves by shutting off. You'd still be mining on all the other cards, only that one card drops offline. All mining rigs do this when you're pushing max hashrate.
I like to use the Belkin WeMo to remotely monitor my wattage, if it drops below a threshold I know I've got a dropped card and I can reset the rig remotely, it automatically boots back up and starts mining again. There's other options like CGwatcher that are pretty slick, but I've found what works for me and I'll stick to it.
It can be run fairly quiet. I ran it with no external cooling fans for a while successfully at about 3.2MH/s. I since threw some fans back on it since I don't like keeping the AC on all day and its warming up outside. Fans are included.
I offer support. I want to see my creation keep digging for a long time, that said I'll support you in getting it started back up in its new home. Check my Reddit threads for references, I know damned well what I'm talking about and I'll see to it that you get up and running.
I'm not accepting returns on this rig. Its sold as-is. Because these are sensitive electronic components, I can't be responsible for your damaging it. Its a tough well built rig, I assure you. It will work 100% when I shut it down, it should work 100% when you receive it.
Before buying or bidding I HIGHLY SUGGEST you drop me a message so we can sort out the details and make sure that this is the right rig for you!
I did the parts breakdown up on PC parts picker and it came up pretty fair. Note that their price does not include assembly labor, setup and tuning, or love and affection :)

DogeMiner

Looking at making a rig dedicated solely to mining cryptocurrency (DogeCoin). Doge is a little different from Bitcoin - so ASIC miners won't work.
I'm really just trying to squeeze as many R9 280Xs into a computer as I can, without bottlenecking them. My question is: will my CPU or RAM bottleneck? Are they overkill?

I know it would be more cost-effective to just get two of the Mk. 1 build, but I think the plan might be to only get a single R9 280X, and then add the rest individually as I get the cash. Plus 4-way CX is sick-nasty.
