    It's a good idea investing into a big set of rigs but I would do mining on different coins simultaneously in order to minimize the risk. Aiming only to eth is a risk in this moment and the total difficulty is increasing day by day according to the volume exchanged. Another hint: use AMD cards.

    Hello everyone,
    I´ve been playing with some of the profitability calculators available online, trying to get an accurate ROI for a rig. I´d like to know, however, actual figures from people actually mining. Any input will be greatly appreciated (ETH earned per hashrate unit per day, for example).

    Thanks a bunch,
    Ariel

    In my case every rx470 generates 1 etherum a month so depending on number of cards per rig, cost of kw etc you can do your numbers. Cheers

    Cheapo ASUS RADEON RX 570 4GB EXPEDITION OC with mem straps of 1:1500 copied up to 1:2000, hashing 28.5MH/s currently (1300/1980), latest AMD driver. Need to tweak. Any hints appreciated!

    Currently running an MSI 470 8GB, Micron memory unfortunatley. Is this power consumption a bit too high for 28.5MH/s? What should I be aiming for?

    I am sitting at about 210W at the socket with 1 GPU. But GPU-Z says the GPU alone is 130W.

    can you post your BIOS moded?
    I can send you, but I can't seem to attach .rom file?

    GPU0 is a ASUS STRIX 480 8GB that I use for mining+gaming (I toggle it off in Claymore when gaming; mem speeds couldn't really be pushed and neither could the undervolt because of the dual-usage hence the significantly lower hashrate...I'm too lazy to flash a BIOS to it and reboot for gaming)

    GPU1 is a reference ASUS 480 8GB. Best performer out of the bunch. No longer available by ASUS as far as I know (never saw them make another one after I was lucky enough to get this one).

    GPU2 is a MSI 470 Armor 4GB. Probably the worst of the bunch. I wasn't paying attention when I ordered it and got the 1650mhz mem clock version. These mem chips are probably sub-par hence the lower-than average advertised speeds (and hence lowest hashrate out of all the cards I have).

    GPU3 is a reference MSI 480 4GB.

    All 4 cards have Samsung memory and all 4 cards are using completely custom timing straps. Over a 12 hour period each card generates around 100 memory errors (0 rejected and 0 invalid shares according to Claymore's miner).

    hello guys, i have a serious problem that i can't solve. I have a rig with 5 sapphire nitro rx 470 4gb. The power consumption for this rig is 1220 watt approximately (200 - 240 watt per gpu), it's insane!
    I determinated this with two different instruments and both shows me this power consumption. I am using ethosditro, here the settings in config file. Thanks in advance

    Just setup my first rig
    Used some parts from old PC
    Athlon processor
    4*Sapphire RS480 4gb nitro (without the plus) - All Samsung memory
    Currently getting a stable 29mh/s . Running over a day
    Getting a lot stale shares. Seems to a problem with the Wifi. I didn't use the extender cable so all those graphic cards must have been cutting the signal. Hopefully it should be much better with the extender cable.
    I can push it above 30mh/s but then power usage increases a lot
    Any suggestions?


    Hey man, i have the same card, but is elpida memory, whats bios you have utilized?
    I mining at @29 MH/S with 110w utilization showing in afterburner.
    its is to much?

    (I MINING ETH AND DECRED IN DUAL MINING USING CLAYMORE)

    How i can decrease the watts and do the same 29mh\s ?

    I was able to get the power consumption down to 100 W per card on the wall with heavy undervolting/underclocking. I used a voltage of only 0.87 V and a clock of 1150 MHz, which is sufficient for 29-30 MHash.
    Tight (1500) memory straps, memory clocked to 1980-2050. Unfortunately it is only Hynix and Elipda.

    Cheapo Gigabyte RX 580 4 GB.

    Those 580 may not be faster, but they seem to undervolt very well.

    You sir deserve a gold star for asking. Memory errors decrease your EFFECTIVE hashrate hence decreasing your mining income. You can check this through the free program HWINFO. My golden rule is that if I see more than 1 mem error every 3 min then either loosen the GDDR5 straps or lower the mem timing. You should get as close to 0 as possible. If you crash or see invalid shares then you need to do some tweaking.

    After a rig check, i've been looking in to 6GPU rigs but with everything being sold out and superinflated it seems better to make a 4GPU rig with the potential of just making another 4. PSU/Mobo/CPU costs seem close to 1/2 for 4GPU boards compared to 6 GPU's.

    Processor: Intel G1840
    Mobo: ASUS H81M-Plus
    Ram: Crucial 4gb DDR3 1600MHz
    PSU: EVGA 750W
    GPU: 4x Sapphire AMD Radeon RX 580 4gb PULSE
    Hard Drive: Windows 10 on 120gb Sandisk SSD.
    Frame: Custom made aluminium angle and some wood with some standoff screws.
    Risers: 4 Powered USB3.0 PCI-E Risers

    This would be my first rig. I am a bit sceptical about the psu. I'm not sure how much power other components require so i'm a little worried that this will barely cover the rig. would 850W be sufficient or do I need 1000W?

    I am not sure on the depreciation in the graphics cards, would it be better to spend 25% more on the Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8GB Nitro cards due to better resale value? The 8gb cards are in stock a week earlier too.

    Would it be possible to mix the cards, get 2x 4GB and 2x 8gb cards?

    Cheeers for any opinions/corrections.

    2 rx580 hynix 35-36 mhs per. 74c 120-126watt . Interested in actual shares grabbed, is it directly related to mhs or hash speed or potentially other factors. 2hr 109 shares two cards = .49 share per min. Wondering

    -> 4,1 Watt / MHS

    someone get better efficiency?

    Seems like a low watt, nice. You get higher Efficiency with more cards per motherboard. Also better power supplies or running 220v is better then running 120v. I use a clamp multimeter and see [email protected] so 936w for 6 cards @ 35mhs 210mhs 4.45w / mhs . you win. need to target 840watt to beat you.. I have a HP power supply i need to put in and keep tuning, just get it running over the last 10 days.

    Cheapo ASUS RADEON RX 570 4GB EXPEDITION OC with mem straps of 1:1500 copied up to 1:2000, hashing 28.5MH/s currently (1300/1980), latest AMD driver. Need to tweak. Any hints appreciated!

    Did you get any further on tweaking this card, I ordered a couple myself but seem to find very little conclusive info regarding modding it's BIOS. Do the setting you put in turn out to work fine and stable? I see others mention they overheat?

    Thanks for the reply in advance!

    Hello, I'm going to build miner and I tough about AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100 workstations for it.
    Since they're made for work almost 24/7 + as I checked 7100 can give you 60+ Mhs.

    This result is for command eth -M -G
    and result is about the same as for eth -M -C

    I will upgrade to 0.9.21 and post again, maybe this changes things.

    How do you guys get it to detect MBP's GPUs? If I'm not using --opencl-device it does this:

    $ ethminer -G -M

    min/mean/max: 33/59/66 H/s
    inner mean: 22 H/s


    Then if I try adding --opencl-devices (tried up to 12), it does the same.

    Is there a way list OpenCL device IDs?

    After fiddeling a little bit with Precision X I landed at the following stable settings:
    Power target: +116%
    GPU Clock Offset: +230MHz
    Mem Clock Offset: +900Mhz
    Voltage: 65% (stayed at 1075mV)

    My final results were as followed:
    59°C (the room is very hot, as it is summer here)
    The whole (gaming) system draws 178W from the wall.

    Benchmarking results:
    Trial 1... 21321045
    Trial 2... 21313940
