    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 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)

    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 AngelesMember Posts: 16
    @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.
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 139
    @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 Member Posts: 139
    @shavill since the difficulty increase, it's a bit less, somewhere around 1.2 ETH/month
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 139
    @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.

    @Klintistwood after you posted your rates I had to get a couple 1060s (6g) to test.

    Doing better than 24mh/s per card


    settings


    The things run cool at 10c less than the 1070s. I still have to plug my Kill-a-Watt monitor in, but I'm guessing I'm pulling less than 100w per card.

    Now I wish I had bought these rather than the 1070s because the cost per mh isn't even close. I got a decent deal on the 1070s at 32.5mh $440ea. and the 1060s (6g OC) 24mh $265ea.

    1060 x8 (178-184mh/s under 800w) $2120 = $12 per mh
    1070 x6 (184-195mh/s 130w+/-5% 780w) $2640 = $14 per mh/s
    1060 3g at $200 (21-22mh) would drop it to a tad over $10 per mh.

    I know the window of opportunity for the 1060 3g is limited, but still, at $200ea they would roi in 5-6 months at current difficulty. That's damn good.

    Anyway, I picked up a Biostar BTC 6 slot which will accomodate 10-12 of these suckers with risers and I'll post when I've got it running. It;s going to be a unique hybrid rig built on a beer budget.

    Cheers

    @shavill I also have a 1070 but in my desktop computer, it's a very good card but price makes it less interesting than a 1060 today. I have found one of the GTX 1060 I have at 199$ : https://goo.gl/vJmdHs

    With that kind of price, the 1060 is really the best card around for now and power consumption is really good, my whole rig has 890W at the wall.

    It's a pity delivery and taxes to my country would kill the benefit, otherwise I would have bought 2 more, I have a 12PCI motherboard.
  • shavillshavill Los AngelesMember Posts: 16
    I agree completely, and the 1060 3g will hash other currencies better than the AMDs, other than Monero. I'm following your lead and looking for the best deals I can find on any flavor of 1060. Just finished my 1st rig today (updating the OS as I type) and ready to fill all the slots (MUHA)

    You're lucky that your 1060 has Samsung or Micron memory.
    Because if you happen to pick-up the Hynix one, you will regret of choosing 1060.
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 139
    @xyber yes indeed, that's why you should buy from amazon because you can return the product if you're unhappy. That's what I did and I only kept the ones with Samsung memory. I highlighted the models I bought earlier in this thread.

    Saw that article from your website but stability isn’t mentioned. How long could it do 31.8 and how many memory errors in HWinfo?

    Unfortunately, latest amazon return policy in my area is that you can only return an item if it is unopened.
    Opened items, you will only get 50% refund.

    @xyber where are you located? If within the EU, you should benefit from the same advantages everywhere. There is law for online purchase where you have the right to change your mind and return what you have bought. Amazon is not the only one following that rule.

    I am currently in the land of the rising sun.
    You can check the return policy on Amazon JP page right now to see what I mean.
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 139
    @xyber ah good place to live but less interesting return policy :) If you would buy from another country with a beter return policy, wouldn't that be an option? I don't know about import taxes in your country but if they're not stealing your money with taxes, it might be an option.

    Not a profitable option.
    I instead bought GTX1070 since the price of RX580 right now is only a slight difference of the price of GTX1070 I got.

    Both micron and samsung gtx1070 are both produce similar hashrates.

    Does anyone have a benchmark for the 1050ti?
    I did plan to but X2 1070 but at £400 each they don't seem like the best option when I can nearly buy X2 1060 for same price.

    Depending on the hash rate of the 1050ti maybe it's worth getting
  • 3characterslong3characterslong Member Posts: 2
    Never mind I see the 580 8gb is the best option now
  • KlintistwoodKlintistwood Member Posts: 139
    @3characterslong the RX580 has a better hashrate than the GTX 1060 but is more expensive and needs more power. If you get a GTX 1060 with Samsung memory, you could get 23MH/S for 200$ (= 8.69$ per MH/s) while a 580 will get you 30MH/s for 280$ (= 9.33$ per MH/s + more power costs)
