Shark Extreme Pros
- You can mine ZCash, Monero, Ethereum, and more than 50 other types of coins with the unit.
- Customization is available for the Shark Extreme
- It comes with a power supply unit
Shark Extreme Cons
- This is not an ASIC miner, so you will not be mining Litecoin and Bitcoin
- This is an expensive miner per unit, even when you can get discounts
- This can run hot when you have 8 GPUs running in the rig
Hosting Colocation Benefits
You could choose to host the mining rig at your own home if you would like, but it is important to keep in mind that it can get loud when you have this many GPUs running. It can also get warm, so you will need to make sure that you have a way to cool and ventilate the area. Most will find that it is going to be easier to work with a colocation company instead. They can take care of keeping the machine cool and in good working order, and you will often find better electrical prices with a host.
