Chia Plot and Farming Setup with SystemD

Chia Plotting Hardware There are many guides around regarding Chia hardware and performance. I followed some of them and ended up ordering the following configuration for my plotter Intel NUC10i7FNH2 Kingston KCP426SD8/32 (1x, 32GB, DDR4-RAM, SO-DIMM 260 pin) Kingston A400 (480GB, 2.5") Corsair Force MP510 I'm quite happy with this build although I'm only able to plot around 14 plots per day - with no notifications to the hardware/no overclocking, etc. However, I would go with a bigger SSD than the 480GB.
