    2x MSI RX480 Gaming X 8GB @ ethOS



    Do you think is possible to improve? I don't have access to windows on this computer :(

    Hi all! my first post on this forum. I have read that 7970 card has to little memory and that's why it works at half power. But i can report that the 7970 I have mines at 23 MH/s with 2200MB of used memory. DAG #139

    Happy mining all!

    @Samsan 74°C with 78% fan ? That's really hot, you should be careful. I have a 1070 in my desktop computer, it goes up to 33MH and remains around 50°C. Do you have hynix memory?

    I'm sure with lower undervolt and lower -dcri value, you could get around 120w gpu-z power draw which is about 160w at the wall, per card.

    HI,
    Voltage is set to -100 in MSI afterburner 16 beta. I tried to lower the drci value ( from 28 to 20), but according to gpu-z only the first card got affected by this change - the power usage dropped from ~150w to 125w, but the other 5 cards continued to use ~150w.

    Safe 36.4 MH/s with Vega Frontier new blockchain driver at 1500 core 1080 mem, not stable at 41 but could probably get a bit more with further tweaking

    How many watts in the wall?

    No idea, I have 3 vega's to get running, as long as my electric bill is reasonable not really bothered, I intend to hold ether for next few years so what ever cost now I anticipate will be covered by ether price (i bought ether for speculation as well)

    Fair enough.

    Reason i'm asking is that in the Vega thread, I think nobody can do >34Mhs without pulling <250w at the wall. If that's the case, you'd keep mining with Vega if you don't pay for power.

    Or you know, you really just love having Vega despite it being the opposite of the glorious pre-launch speculations and ad.

    @Kalmodor can you share your setting for rx 470? i have 1 with samsung mem but i only have 25,7 mh/s
  • wiktoriosswiktorioss Member Posts: 7
    hey guys! after many hours spent on trying to get most of the cards I've got it's still much below what I was expecting.
    Asrock H81 BTC
    4GB RAM
    1x Power Color RX580 Red Dragon 8GB 26.7MH/s
    1x Sapphire RX580 Nitro+ 4GB 26.1MH/s

    I'm about to give up on trying to get more hashrate out of them as nothing helps anymore, they seem to be maxed out.

    Do you use custom timing straps? Because OC could only get you so far.
    Btw, what are you gpu and memory clocks on those?
  • wiktoriosswiktorioss Member Posts: 7
    I have tried strap swap and some custom to GPU BIOS mods but thats where it got me

    GPU Clock: 1450 on Red Devil, 1400 on Nitro+ (if I drop the clocks it will drop hashrate)
    MEM Clock: 2200 on RD, 2000 on Nitro+ (hynix here)

    Used the unofficial adm driver posted by robinh00d on bitcointalk forum with windows7 and then AB 4.4.0 beta and custom strap with rx580 hynix and still doing 30.18mhs on each just AB setting of -15power 1159core 2150mem. Claymore will release another version in a few hours so that might be yet another variable but 9.8 works fine.

    Well then you should do your own trial-and-error:
    1. Find the highest memory clock you could go until it crashes. After reboot, dial it down one step and you're good.
    2. Find the lowest core clock you can go until it starts to affect your hashrate, dial it back up one step and you're good.
    3. For core voltage, starts with -100. Then if 5 minutes have passed and it's stable, do -125. I think if you're lucky you can do -150mV but very few cards manage to be starved with that low of a voltage and still operate smoothly.

    Good luck!
  • wiktoriosswiktorioss Member Posts: 7
    Thanks for help but already gone through all this steps and the above is best result I've got. It's taking around 350W from wall so think I'll need to invest into another rx580 and hope for the best

    Can I apply this to my MSI RX480 Gaming 4G with stock BIOS? Especially the part with core voltage?

    yeah go for it but I would advise you to search for some good mod BIOS first, I have found some at the Anorak page and then applied overclock and got my rig runing 2x 29MH/s

    Using RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB
    PRIME Z270-P

    BIOS flashed and GPU tuned with Sapphire TriXX to:
    1340 GPU Clock
    2250 Memory Clock
    -96mV GPU Voltage

    I did not yet tried to mod BIOS yet. Memory clock is stable up to 2100. Core clock is interesting - at first it ran stable at 1200 and 1150, failing at 1100. Last try it also went black with 1150. Hashrate was 23,7. Reported power 130W.
    I usually run at 1750 memory, 900 core. Hashrate is 21,8 and reported power 77W.
    Hashrate gain was ~9% and power gain was 69% - this is well below my expectations.

    By the way, can I damage GPU by trying to reduce core voltage?

  • wiktoriosswiktorioss Member Posts: 7
    be reducing no, only overvoltage or overpower can brick it.
    Try overclocking the core to 1400 or 1450MHz voltage at -96, power target -20, memory 2200MHz.
    For me these setting are giving most hashrate and take "normal" power 130W on Red Devil and 110W on Nitro+
    going so low on power as you did will have some effect on hashrate, you need to start playing with BIOS mods to find best solution because if you will get 25Mh/s at around 85W then this would be a great result (at least in my opinion)

    I tried memory clock 2150 and it crashed with white or orange screen. Do you think going even higher can be stable?
  • wiktoriosswiktorioss Member Posts: 7
    try then lower values, if 2100 will be good then try 2110, then if its stable increase clock again until it will start crashing then just have it just below the value that causes crashes. It would be good if you checked with GPU-Z what type of memory you got, some memories (mostly Hynix) are complete piece of sh** without good bios mod they will go as far as nowhere with memclock. my 4GB Saphhire Nitro+ thanks to BIOS mod works at 2100 but if I go 2120 it will crash instantly. Still getting 29Mh/s out of it.

    Try some of this BIOS mods (used this forum to source out my BIOS)
