Maximize hash rates

With up to 17 native PCI-E slots, the TB360-BTC Expert and TB360-BTC PRO reach higher hash rates compared to motherboards with fewer PCI-E slots. The native PCI-E slots provides dedicated channels for each slot which makes mining more efficient, unlike previous H110 chipsets that requires PCI-E x1 extension chips.

Minimize setup costs

The TB360-BTC Expert and TB360-BTC PRO motherboards reduce the cost of hardware investment when compared to 6 x PCI-E Slot motherboards. Instead of building up to 3 systems, miners only need to build 1 system, which means fewer components are needed in CPU, motherboard, SSD, DRAM and peripherals.

Easy to setup and troubleshoot

The TB360-BTC PRO and TB360-BTC Expert can be setup effortlessly through the dedicated Mining Mode BIOS which is enabled by default. Without the hassle of making any BIOS changes, this easy-to-use and easy-to–setup feature enables any first time miners to get started right away.

For ease of management and de-bugging, miners can check the status of each graphics cards prior to the system entering the OS to reduce down time. This built-in software helps detect GPU state on POST screen, so problems can be fixed as early as possible.  Error means that the data is incomplete. None means that no signal for GPU.

Hybrid graphics cards support

Professional miners are no longer restricted by AMD or Nvidia graphics card supply shortage. BIOSTAR TB360-BTC Expert and TB360-BTC PRO support a hybrid mix of graphics cards for great flexibility. For example, the setup can be half AMD and half Nvidia graphics on the mining rig.

The TB360-BTC Expert and TB360-BTC PRO are both designed from the ground up such as up to 17 native PCI-E slots, dual 24-pin power connectors, M.2 M-Key 6Gbps connector and 4 x SATA III ports for optimized mining performance to enable professional miners to scale up to larger operations. Software included also makes setting up and management of the hardware easier than ever. The TB360-BTC Expert and TB360-BTC PRO are the ultimate professional mining motherboards for today’s mining needs.
