Cryptocurrency mining has put a new slant on the way in which we look at PC hardware. For more mainstream usage scenarios, large motherboards, high-capacity power supplies and multiple graphics cards can be frowned upon, yet put such hardware to work in a mining rig and you could be laughing all the way to the bank.

That's the theory, but how many of you have dabbled with crypto-mining? To find out, this week's question asks: do you mine? Let us know in the comments facility below, and feel free to share your experiences for those who are looking to get started.

I did for a couple of weeks, did not see the benefit
Used a gtx970 strix for monero and i7 4790k for bytecoin
I better not try! ;)
Part of me is wondering if I should try, to say my 290x's seem to be worth more on ebay now they must be up to it.

Either that or I might just pull one and sell it while the going is good.
Yep, though not full time, just to make a little money off the hardware I have. R9 390 and R9 280, combined get a hashrate of around 47-48MH/s. I'd love to use my CPU on the action, but its not very profitable.

What sort of returns did you see, if you don't mind the ask?
