Any advice would be great. I have not done any crypto mining other than a few tries a few years ago on a pc. The company I work for does IT stuff and one of the data centers I deal with offered to give me a full rack for $400 a month, with unlimited internet, power, and they keep the data center 60 degrees year-round. I am thinking of getting the rack and putting it to use for mining. Good idea or bad idea and why? If it is a good idea what equipment would you suggest? Any help would be great.

Thanks

Unless you plan on mining a CPU algo coin, you will need ASICs to mine coins, and there are not many CPU mineable
coins worth mining.

That is about as far as I got with my research. ASICs look like the only option these days. I am not sure if I am confused the way I am looking at them. Besides being hard to get it seems that the vast majority of them you would barely break even on even with factoring in the power.
