    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
    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?

    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 Posts: 7Member
    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)

    how to tweak the best for xfx r9 380 4g? and hd7950? cl-local-work? --cl-global-work? and tweaking use afterburner? less energy? more ram or higher gpu?

    10x GTX 1060, 850W at the wall (whole rig)

    That's a good ROI... are they the 6g or 3g 1060s? I'm running dual 1070 OC on my daily workstation, with 2 1060 6g on the way. Hoping to squeeze out 110mh/s out of this beast.

    @shavill I only have 3G models. I have a 1070 in my desktop, I can go up around 33MH/s (even managed to go above 35 but not stable). With your setup you should be able to get 33x2 + 23x2 > around 110 MH/s
  • shavillshavill Los AngelesPosts: 13Member
    @Klintistwood I managed to get them doing 32 but they ran a little warm and was impossible to do other tasks. This is my daily workstation doing double duty. Plan on building a 6-7gpu rig as well.

    I've been reading that the PoS will render anything 4g and under obsolete by next year. Is this true? I'm still fairly new to the mining scene, so imitating a sponge at the moment.

    @shavill it's the DAG size that will make 3G cards useless (for ETH), it's true but nobody knows exactly when it's going to happen so it's a bet. I still have a couple of months ahead of me anyway. After that I'll go for another currency where DAG is not an issue.

    @Klintistwood AHA that's right... still learning all this stuff (obviously) - thanks!

    Just curious, is your rig pulling down about 1.4 ETH a month?
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Posts: 83Member
    @shavill since the difficulty increase, it's a bit less, somewhere around 1.2 ETH/month

    @shavill here are links to the GPUs I bought, I see that some of them are back around 200€

    From Amazon FR:
    EVGA 3G single fan: http://amzn.to/2eqshgX (got 3 of those)
    MSI 3G single fan: http://amzn.to/2gpVr0i (got 1 of this)
    MSI 3G double fan: http://amzn.to/2vyCP8M (got 6 of those)

    From Amazon US:
    EVGA 3G single fan: amzn.to/2wYGahD
    MSI 3G single fan : amzn.to/2wpQrBW
    MSI 3G dual fan: amzn.to/2wudwBO

    Best performing is the MSI 3G with double fan, temperature is much lower and so far I'm still pushing their frequency.

    Sounds about right. I'm only getting about 1/3rd ETH on dual 1070s, so an x6 rig would do about an ETH a mo. The ROI is getting really bad. Looking forward to getting my D3, hopefully before the difficulty goes sky high on DASH.
