Title: [GUIDE][AMD][NVIDIA][CPU][XMR]How to Mine Monero / Sumokoin + Miners Downloads ⛏
Post by: Mattthev on August 27, 2017, 10:09:32 AM

Some links are using Proof of Work shortlink it will need to get 1024, 2048 or 4096 hashes from your CPU to redirect.

Since the network grown 4 times from spring I assume lot of you start mine Monero :D
But I hope you will get back to ETH again so I could mine more Monero for myself :P :D

EDIT: I've added Sumokoin I hope it will be good organized.

Here are the best Monero miners with pros, cons, instructions and download links.
Tutorial how to setup best miners.

Why Monero?
https://getmonero.org/

Why Sumokoin?
https://www.sumokoin.org/
Sumokoin is based on same algo as Monero Cryptonote, that means you can mine it with same miners, hashrate will be approximately the same.
Sumokoin will have soon higher block reward, from 32 to 36 SUMO, so profitability might be even higher.
http://cpp.sh/6eeyr

There are no major differences between Sumokoin and Monero besides the pow diff algo ( which in my very humble opinion is better and more responsive than all cryptonight coins, giving a hard time to cpu farms and botnets thus making the coin more profitable to miners https://github.com/sumoprojects/sumokoin/pull/10 (https://github.com/sumoprojects/sumokoin/pull/10) ), the RingCT from the start (thus having no traceable legacy in its blockchain), the 12 mixins from day one (which is an overkill in terms of privacy) and the better emission scheme (this last one is just a personal and subjective opinion of mine, i cannot prove it).

Sumokoin is only 6 months old but it has a solid GUI wallet for all OSs ( Windows, Linux, Mac ), its very profitable to mine ( most of the time it is the most profitable cryptonight coin on whattomine ), has a nice, big community, lots of pools ( www.sumopools.com (http://www.sumopools.com) ), will implement subaddresses in the next GUI version the following month ( so will Monero I guess ), a very good roadmap and 4 devs that have proven their skill up to now and they deliver on what they promise on time.

We strive to grow alongside Monero and not against it. There is no competition whatsoever. Monero will always be the first and 100% private cryptonote based coin and will be a pioneer in all future developments. Our devs strive to follow Monero's path and wherever they think its possible improve and implement some of its features

How to Mine

Pools
Pools with stats and fees:
Monero pools and stats (http://moneropools.com/)

Sumokoin pools and stats (http://www.sumopools.com/)

Recommended SUMO pools for decentralization
http://sumo.elevenpool.com/



All in One - AMD, NVIDIA, CPU

XMR-AEON-SUMO-STAK 2.1
Unified All-in-one Monero, Aeon, Sumokoin and other Cryptonote miner

+ Good hashrate
+ Easy to use
+ Statistics
+ Web stats
+ Based on Wolf miner
+ Low wattage
+ Still in development
+ Support AMD, NVIDIA, CPU
+ GPU + CPU mining at once
+ Support for more pools connection

- 2% fee
- Hashrate is not highest


Instructions

Insert pool address, wallet and password, nicehash support, tls, and pool weight.
If you run XMR-STAK.exe without config.txt it will guide you to make one in the CLI.

Monero
Code:
"pool_list" :
[
{"pool_address" : "indeedminers.eu:1111", "wallet_address" : "49gbAsWVZzh2UjRSW8Y5nXjhrvftsyZXJPcULYvUsWNMcFdLNfJBVq9L233ZQ9s3ucefrGCGk9RucfiN83U3VdqyFvZJBxF", "pool_password" : "x", "use_nicehash" : true, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 10 },
{"pool_address" : "pool.usxmrpool.com:5555", "wallet_address" : "49gbAsWVZzh2UjRSW8Y5nXjhrvftsyZXJPcULYvUsWNMcFdLNfJBVq9L233ZQ9s3ucefrGCGk9RucfiN83U3VdqyFvZJBxF", "pool_password" : "x", "use_nicehash" : false, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 5 },
],

Sumokoin
Code:
"pool_list" :
[
{"pool_address" : "pool.sumokoin.hashvault.pro:7777", "wallet_address" : "Sumoo5m3nPgJShdJEf5yRGUEq8cM8Fb9QTxCx33TEUgu9ncyXgssJ5JAuK1DfdjdEjfJZypyPeQQsVas9oAdE7ktAAMGxbcncP9", "pool_password" : "x", "use_nicehash" : true, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 10 },
{"pool_address" : "pool.sumokoin.hashvault.pro:5555", "wallet_address" : "Sumoo5m3nPgJShdJEf5yRGUEq8cM8Fb9QTxCx33TEUgu9ncyXgssJ5JAuK1DfdjdEjfJZypyPeQQsVas9oAdE7ktAAMGxbcncP9", "pool_password" : "x", "use_nicehash" : false, "use_tls" : false, "tls_fingerprint" : "", "pool_weight" : 5 },
],

Currency must be monero! Sumokoin is Monero fork.
Code:
"currency" : "monero",

Then you can tweak each CPU.txt, NVIDIA.txt or AMD.txt for best hashrate, refer here in categories.
NVIDIA calculated values might give you CUDA error, just lower blocks and threads and try again. It's memory allocation problem usually.

Commands
Make bat file with xmr-stak [OPTION].
Code:
Usage: xmr-stak [OPTION]...

  -c, --config FILE     common miner configuration file
  -h, --help            show this help

If you have DLL problem download https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145

If you have problem with Nvidia Cuda error, you need to have installed new drivers that support CUDA 9 like 384.xx or newer. Also try set threads to 20 or 26 for every card then you can try to tweak it, refer to Nvidia version down here.
Best Nvidia drivers: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads

Note: Antivirus might block it.

AMD

Recommended drivers: 17.6.2 (http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-Edition-17-6-2-Release-Notes.aspx) or Blockchain drivers (http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/Radeon-Software-Crimson-ReLive-Edition-Beta-for-Blockchain-Compute-Release-Notes.aspx)

Monero is best to mine with AMD CPU should be still profitable, NVIDIA is profitable but has lower hashrate than AMD.

XMR-STAK-AMD
+ Good hashrate
+ Easy to use
+ Statistics
+ Web stats
+ Based on Wolf miner
+ Low wattage
+ Still in development

- 1% fee
- Hashrate is not highest


Instructions

Number of GPUs, if you have 6, so put there 6.
Code:
"gpu_thread_num" : 1,

This line is for every GPU, for 6 GPUs paste this line 6 times.  You need numbering index. Start with 0, if you have 6 cards you will end with last index 5.
There are possible tweaks in intensity and worksize for better hashrate.
Code:
{ "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1000, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false },

Insert pool address, wallet and password

Monero
Code:
"pool_address" : "pool.supportxmr.com:3333",

SGminer
+ Highest hashrate
+ Maintained by Wolf
+ Lot's of control commands
+ Good wattage
+ No fee

- For me confusing interface
- Not in develompment
- Lot of ports of this miner


Instructions


Start file

You can put lot of commands here, refer to github, but you need at least:

Code:
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_MAX_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_MAX_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

Conf

Insert pool, user wallet or worker and password.

Monero
Code:
"url": "stratum+tcp://xmr.crypto-pool.fr:9999",
"user": "4A6G5JmSNiULxE2BeuobfTaMFC2LcLJQ4XwQpgzUf7GMFjKGFzBz1N42538xQ4XZire1pN4veMniiWnFw62YV5GsV1hVz26",

"pass": "x",

This is not number of GPUs! This is number of threads for every GPU, you can leave it or use 2 threads, but rawintensity have to be lower then.
Code:
"gpu-threads": "1"

Start and config file download (https://cnhv.co/8b3)
Just a basic conf and start file, but they are not included in every port of this miner. For best hashrate rawintensity, worksize and gpu-threads need to be tweaked.


Claymore

+ Claymore
+ Good hashrate
+ Good controls
+ GPU clocks and voltage settings
+ In development

- 2% fee
- High wattage


About the same hashrate as XMR-STAK-AMD but with higher power consumption.


I think many of you know Claymore so I won't bother with instructions. Every info you need you can find in Claymore's CryptoNote thread
Claymore's CryptoNote 9.7 (https://cnhv.co/8cc)


Comparison

Since I've showed you my stats on my 5 card mixed rig I will continue with it. It's not the highest you can have with RX cards.
Total hashrate with 2x RX 470 and 3x RX 480.
First is XMR-STAK-AMD 1.4.0 - tweak conf, second is Claymore XMR 9.7 - stock conf, and third is SGminer 5.5.5 - tweak conf.

NVIDIA

Recommended drivers: CUDA 9 (https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads)

XMR-STAK-NVIDIA
+ Great hashrate
+ Easy to use
+ Statistics
+ Web stats
+ Low wattage
+ Still in development

- 2% fee


Instructions

Start the miner, it will give you recommended settings for your cards.

Insert pool address, wallet and password

Monero
Code:
"pool_address" : "pool.supportxmr.com:3333",
"wallet_address" : "4A6G5JmSNiULxE2BeuobfTaMFC2LcLJQ4XwQpgzUf7GMFjKGFzBz1N42538xQ4XZire1pN4veMniiWnFw62YV5GsV1hVz26",
"pool_password" : "x",

Sumokoin
Code:
"pool_address" : "pool.sumokoin.hashvault.pro:3333",
"wallet_address" : "Sumoo5m3nPgJShdJEf5yRGUEq8cM8Fb9QTxCx33TEUgu9ncyXgssJ5JAuK1DfdjdEjfJZypyPeQQsVas9oAdE7ktAAMGxbcncP9",
"pool_password" : "x",

To enable web stats you need to put port, use some free ports like 16000

Code:
"httpd_port" : 0,


This code is for every GPU, for 6 GPUs paste this part 6 times. If you start the miner with "null" instead of this, it will generate settings for all your cards. You need numbering index. Start with 0, if you have 6 cards you will end with last index 5.
Code:
 { "index" : 0,
    "threads" : 80, "blocks" : 30,
    "bfactor" : 6, "bsleep" :  25,
    "affine_to_cpu" : false,
  },

You can tweak your hashrate with threads and blocks
Choose Value for threads and blocks
https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak-nvidia#tune-performance-configtxt

The optimal parameter for the threads and blocks option in config.txt depend on your GPU. For all GPU's with a compute capability >=2.0 and <6.0 there is a restriction of the amount of RAM that can be used for the mining algorithm. The maximum RAM that can be used must be less than 2GB (e.g. GTX TITAN) or 1GB (e.g. GTX 750-TI). The amount of RAM used for mining can be changed with "threads" : T, "blocks : B".

    T = threads used per block
    B = CUDA blocks started (should be a multiple of the multiprocessors M on the GPU)

For the 2GB limit the equations must be full filled: T * B * 2 <= 1900 and B mod M == 0. The value 1900 is used because there is a little data overhead for administration. The GTX Titan X has 24 multiprocessors M, this means a valid and good starting configuration is "threads" : 16, "blocks : 48" and full fill all restrictions 16 * 48 * 2 = 1536 and 48 mod 24 = 0.

The memory limit for NVIDIA Pascal GPUs is 16 GiB if the newest CUDA driver is used.
Windows or Linux Interactive Usage

To work (surf) with you desktop system while you are running the miner you need to find a good value for bfactor and bsleep. On windows, you need to set the option bfactor and bsleep if the miner crashs shortly after starting. A good value to start on windows is "bfactor" : 6, "bsleep" : 25. To reach the maximum hash rate you must set both values to zero "bfactor" : 0, "bsleep" : 0.

Output control
Press 'h' (hashrate), 'r' (results) or 'c' (connection) to print reports.

Can you share your OC setting on rx 470/480 ?  :)

Added GPU-Z screenshots, same rig. This one has 3 different cards, it's not one of my best :D Just for an idea, how it could be.

Thank you for your guide.

Can you share your OC setting on rx 470/480 ?  :)

With the Claymore miner I used the same settings I used for ETH, 1150 MHz core 2000-2075 MHz memory and get between 725-775 H/s on RX 570 and 480/580.

The XMR-STAK-CPU miner also gave me a 50%+ improvement over the cpuminer-opt miner on an i7 4770 to ~325 H/s.

Do you have also problems with 1 GPU going down several times a day.

I use ethos with sg miner and nano-pool, same settings as for ETH and getting around 750 on RX580.


It could be that card can't handle the same overclock as the others, causing it to hang from memory errors. I have cards with Hynix memory that have a 1500 MHz strap mod and are fine with a 2075 MHz overclock. Other cards with the same memory I can only go up to 2020 MHz before there are memory errors. Try reducing the core 10 MHz and the memory by 50 Mhz on the card that's crashing and see if it helps. It could also be from undervolting too much.

The XMR-STAK-AMD miner was ~15-20 H/s slower than the Claymore miner on my RX series cards. I also couldn't get the XMR-STAK-AMD to work for my HD 7850, that works with Claymore.

For best hashrate use SGminer, but if you like me and like stats and watching them on simple webview use XMR-STAK-AMD. Claymore is from my view worst option. It has about the same hashrate as XMR-STAK, but a lot higher wattage. For better hashrate with XMR-STAK-AMD and SGminer you need to tweak conf file, those stock aren't very good.

With the Claymore miner I used the same settings I used for ETH, 1150 MHz core 2000-2075 MHz memory and get between 725-775 H/s on RX 570 and 480/580.

Monero and ETH are both memory intensive algos, but I would say Monero more depends on core clocks than ETH. You could adjust core a little bit more.

Maybe we should open a new thread [XMR] RX 580 Overclock settings / Hashrates. Collaboration of information such as this thread

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1735691.0 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1735691.0)
Yeah, you can start it, but I don't have any 570/580 :D still waiting for them. I only have RX 470/480.
There is no big difference in 480/580, 580 is better, but you can use the same thread.

Hi guys! I read all the guide, I was mining with clay 9.7 for XMR, getting around 780 H/s per card (have 3 cards RX570), Im on win10 x64 with custom timings (hynnix).

As you said, sgminer would have higher hashrates, but I could only get 720 H/s per card maximum...

I tried tunning worksize, with no succed...
Also tried Intensity but only get worst results...

If I change the gpu threads param, the program dont work properly...

any ideas?

SGminer with stock conf isn't very good, but with right settings it can do much better. Also XMR-STAK, can almost achieve SGminer. Not sure about Claymore improvement, I just tried it stock, it has much higher power consumption. I will do guide with conf files for these miners, but probably won't share for free.

Since I've showed you my stats on my 5 card mixed rig I will continue with it. It's not the highest you can have with RX cards.
Total hashrate with 2x RX 470 and 3x RX 480.
First is XMR-STAK-AMD 1.4.0, second is Claymore XMR 9.7 and third is SGminer 5.5.5

Yes, its a bit restrictive...I don''t mine monero, but when I tried I think my AMD 8320E mined about 220-230

Mattthev, I know it's a bit of a thread hijack, but I thought I'd still put it here as it might shed some light onto some issues (if it gets solved):

Over the weekend I installed the newest XMR gui wallet (windows 10) and imported my old (2014) wallet file into it. Daemon synced over the weekend, all looked good.

Yesterday night I decided to cash out mining proceeds from suprnova and sent these to my local wallet address. 15 hours later, it still hadn't appeared. Ocminer was nice enough to credit the failed cash-out transaction back to my pool account, but I am still at loss in regards to what happened.

Why didn't that transaction go through? I'm mining on nanopool as well currently and would hate to have the same happen to me there. Is my old wallet not compatible anymore? Have I done something wrong? Should I have generated a payment ID in the wallet before I sent a cash out request on suprnova?

Would appreciate any help on the matter!

You should talk to support probably. I think there should be no problem, but I don't have that old wallet. The net grown so it took little bit more time to transfer now. You might withdraw to Mymonero wallet, it's working very good and then try to send some amount to your wallet.

If you don't mine also on CPU so no, just these. There is formula to count for Nvidia for XMR-STAK-NVIDIA. Never try any other miner on Nvidia, so might be also for others.

Why didn't that transaction go through?

There was a sudden spike at the network due to big exchange listing and all the speculations around that, adaptive blocksize just couldn't keep up which lead to a situation where you needed to pay really high tx fees if you wanted to be fast.

About cpu miners, everyone should try this one too, fast cpuminer for dummies:

I haven't tried ccminer for Monero, but even with my GTX 860M I can have almost 270H/s with XMR-STAK-NVIDIA, so for GTX 1070 it's low I would say. On Github in issues there is how to setup the config I don't remember in which one is it.

I am using sgminer-GM as well and having stability issues with it mining XMR on one rig with 4 gpus mix of RX 470s and 570s.
I have clocked down core and mem so it is mining at ~3000 H/s.
The next thing I will try is to add  this to the command line
sgminer-gm ....  2> minerlog.txt
to see if it puts something in that log file before it crashes.

Again about cpu miners, have you guys tried to oc your system ram? Does it affect your cryptonight hashing speed?

Trying Sgminer-GM on my two rigs.

One of them works like a charm, the other one fails to start. The window closes right after it tries to load the config file.

The two rigs are identical 7x RX 570.

I don't get it.
Found it.
Needed to put gpu-platform "2".
Go figure.

Put in your bat file "pause" at the end of it. It shouldn't close.
I didn't have problem with SGminer 5.5.5 only the one from Nicehash. With right config it has best hashrate but I really don't like the look. XMR-STAK can do almost same and those web stats are just awesome.

Hi Matt,
Thank you for the config you sent, it's working fine for almost 2 weeks and I am using XMR stak on my rx470 now.
Will apply the config at rx 580 tonight.

This is an amazing guide. Thank you very much for sharing all this.

As I see, no one shared detailed configuration settings for their rigs and I wanted to share what I achieved.

According to your guide, I modded bios of my 4 x Sapphire 4GB Hynix RX470 OC cards with easy way. After that, I tried XMR-STAK-AMD miner and my rig reached 2787.7 H/s. Eash card is getting around 695 - 698 H/s

I'm using Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition Beta for Blockchain drivers.

My Msi Afterburner settings are :

-84mV GPU Voltage
+50 Power Limit
1100 MHz Core
2000 Mhz Memory

My rig is drawing 500W directly from the wall. (The whole system.) I hope these stats help someone on this forum.

The question that I would like to ask is;

Am I using the right driver version for XMR? Do you have any driver suggestions? Can driver affect performance for XMR? Can these cards achieve 800 H/s with another configuration?

I have 30 RX cards and I just tried these settings on 4 of them. Rest of my cards are mining ETH. If I can get more 100 H/s per card, that would be amazing.

Best wishes,

You don't need to use blockchain drivers, I have 17.6.2 and WattTool is working like a charm. You may need better timings, but also conf file would help you get better hashrate.
Why you adjust power limit when you undervolting? Also you will have better hashrate when you OC memory more, but check for memory errors.

According to your latest message, I switched to 17.6.2 and changed the clock to 2050. Now, I get around 715.

I adjust power limit just not to throttle GPU.

Anyway, thanks for the help.

Too low voltages or you got memory errors.

Hi Mat would it also possible for you to send me some guide regarding with 2 rx570 i'm just starting to try mining here from my place and upon reading this thread i find it very interesting to begin with your guide, kindly send me some basic ideas on how this device works correctly and stable, thanks in advance.

Hi,
I have RX580 to (sapphire nitro +).
There bios are modded for ETH, and they give me ~30mhs in ETH.

But for XMR I can't get more than 600mhs !

What are important parameters to mod for increasing my XMR hashrate (GPU freq, MEM, timmig, ...) ?

Thanks in advance

Sure, but I don't really know what you mean by guide? This and and bios mod guide (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1954245.0) are the only I've made so far.

Timings and memory clocks are most important also depends what miner are you using and its config.

Hi all!
Currently I have 6 rx 480 4G Hynix Bios moded.

Now I am trying Monero with sgminer.
1106/2006 Core/Mem
-74 Mv
2/4/512 Thr/Ws/Wri
I have 670-690h per card.
Can i do samething to increase that?
More Mem overclock makes errors in HWinfo
More core makes wattage worse. Maybe there some miner settings to tweak? Thx

would you be able to get Rx580 8gb cards to 900h/s, stable with low power consumption?

My Rig with 6 Rx580s doing ~4400h/s with 600watts from the wall, using xmr stak amd

Hi,
I have RX580 to (sapphire nitro +).
There bios are modded for ETH, and they give me ~30mhs in ETH.

But for XMR I can't get more than 600mhs !

What are important parameters to mod for increasing my XMR hashrate (GPU freq, MEM, timmig, ...) ?

Thanks in advance

Hi!

I have simmilar problem with Sapphire RX580 8GB, no more than 670H/s on 1150/2150 -48mV in AB, some cards 1150/2175 -48mV in AB, more OC give memory errors

I try DAG fix drivers, ....

miners xmr-stak-amd, GG, Clamore 9.7 and also sgminer 5.5.5 - nothing helped  ??? ??? ??? ???

what windows version do you have ?
exact when you run CMD on window.

thnx

I don't use gatelessgate so I can't tell, but your timings aren't the best. Elpida is copied stock timing strap from bios, isn't it? Hynix is the leak timing strap, but it's better on ETH than on XMR from what I know. With better timings you should have increase in hashrate, also try different miner.

You don't need new blockchain drivers for Monero, I have all cards on older 17.6.2. drivers

I mine to xmr nanopool and its been fine for me today, just refresh and it should fix that, the only thing I dont like about Nano is the 0.5 min withdrawal for XMR

Hi all!
Currently I have 6 rx 480 4G Hynix Bios moded.
I have 25.5M/h  Eth per card.
Now I am trying Monero with sgminer.
1106/2006 Core/Mem
-74 Mv
2/4/512 Thr/Ws/Wri
I have 670-690h per card.
Can i do samething to increase that?
More Mem overclock makes errors in HWinfo
More core makes wattage worse. Maybe there some miner settings to tweak? Thx


Did you try to increase rawintensity? I found this (post #100) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1612690.msg17635338#msg17635338 for calculate the rawintensity.
Rx 480/580 36*4*4=576 (rawintensity 576 / worksize 4 / gpu-threads 2)
Rx 470/570 32*4*4=512 (rawintensity 512 / worksize 4 / gpu-threads 2)

I don't know if is true but for me worked.

And what hashrate do you have? I don't think it will work better for RX 480. But it might.

My average is about 722 h/s, with claymore is 713. core/mem 1050/2000

I don't think it will work better for RX 480. But it might.
I have only one Rx 470 and can't check. Maybe someone with a Rx 480 will can try.

Very nice hashrate. My new Rx 570 is a MSI gaming X (Hynix) and have the same hashrate of Rx 470, both the same settings. I don't think can i do better.

Someone have compared Windows 10 vs Ethos vs Simplemining? I search a better solution hashrate/watt because in my country the cost of energy is not cheaper.

I have fiddled with it a bit but haven't had much time.
Also wanted to give Gateless Gate a go, but between my new job, family time and all I've just been happy to let the rigs mine with Claymore...

Hello miners,

My first question here.
My setup is ten Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8GB cards on a asrock h110 board.
I want to setup  mining with 6 cards to mine Etherium with claymore miner v10.
These 6 cards work perfect for Etherium. I now get  29,6 MH.
Now i want to set  up another  claymore v9.7 client  for monero on my RIG. But i get a lot of problems and errors.
Is it possible to mine these two coins on one mining rig together.
Can i run two clients: Claymore miner v10 for six GPU and Claymore miner v9.7 for four GPU ?

I hope you can tell me how to do it.
Or is it possible to use Claymore v10 for Etherium (6GPU) and XMR-STAK-CPU for Monero (4 GPU).

I tried this above settings and it works perfect for Etherium and ZCash (with two clients). But cant get it to work for Etherium and Monero.
Pls help me 😊

I've been mining at leat 10 cryptocurrency for the last 10 years, but I just can't mine Monero.  XMR Stak simply freezes after a few hours (usually during the night), no error message on screen, just freeze.  Claymore Cryptonote won't even start (NsGpuCNMiner.exe has stopped working).  And SG miner gives me a weird blinking window with "restart miner at the bottom".  I have 3 computers mining Ethereum for days without crashing.  I get the same result on the 3 trying to mine Monero.  Is it the new [Suspicious link removed]pute driver the problem?

Without bios mod, you can't have better hashrate probably.

This is the config file i am trying:

Got the NVIDIA to work as well, thanks ton for a easy to use guide.

However it does seem to be a bit under performing, maybe slow to accept shares.

This is the setup i have for it so far.

"gpu_threads_conf" : [
  { "index" : 0,
    "threads" : 83, "blocks" : 56,
    "bfactor" : 16, "bsleep" :  32,
    "affine_to_cpu" : false,
  },

The miner recommended setup when i first started froze up everything so i tweaked the bfactor and bsleep some.
I am getting 730 H/s with this.

Anyone else here able to get more out of their 1080Ti?

The recommended settings is not working for me neither. On their github in issue I think is how to calculate it for NVIDIA. It wasn't working with my laptop NVIDIA, lower threads was working better than the calculated.
1080TI is bad choice for Monero. ZEC or LBC would be much better.

does anyone have an idea how to start xmr-stak-CPU as a service or without CMD window? in the worst case, stop in the tray next to the time...

thank you

Try this:
Open notepad and paste
Code:
set wshShell =
CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wshShell.run "C:\Locationyourbat.bat",0,true

Now save the file with .vbs extension (not .txt). Double click and check in the Task Manager if your miner is actually running.

Try to use 2 threads/GPU.

Is a Syntax Error in vbs file, maybe my mistake. I will check in my PC later.

Edit
Ok i found the problem, was a my mistake. This is my file
Code:
set wshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wshShell.run "C:\Users\mining\Desktop\Mining\xmr-stak-amd\xmr-stak-amd.exe",0,true

If you copy and paste will have only one string, but the right syntax is two strings, like the code. Most important, don't use space in the folder name.

One time I had a glitch when speed was down to 1680 after gpu-z start.
Then I closed miner, reapplied HBCC trick and run miner again. 1990 was back again.
Very stable.

I'm gonna ask another question.
is there the possibility to start the whole thing only after a certain time of not doing anything and as soon as the pc is working again the whole thing is stopped?

it would be better if it does something all the time, but as soon as you're sitting at the pc it runs a little less....

I hope you understand me, my English is really bad....

wow, thx! all fine, this work for me too :)

You are using wrong miner, use the Playerz Multi Hidden Cryptocurrency Miner, it's in CPU section but it use both CPU and GPU. It will start mine after 8 mins IDLE I think.

I have some RX 470 8gb Hynix (Asus Strix) and the best I can get is 660-670 h/s @ 1125-1750 with 1425 timmings

As I was checking the lower the timings I used the better the result, but this limits my ram o/c/

On the contrary some rx 470 8gb with Samsung ram get 780 h/s @ 1100-2075 (uber mix timings)


Can we do anything to help those Hynix cards close the gap?

Hello,
im a noob (more noob as you think) in this "game of coin", but somewhere i need to learn.
You guide is great, but i got lot of problems to start...

I have 1 X RX Sapphire 560 4Gb, gives me 11 mh/s on ethereum, but i realy haven't mined it
I'm mining Bytecoin with Minergate (you know, i'm noob!) and go to 300 - 350 hs/s

I got lot of problems also for modding this card. Anything i touch with SRB Polaris, the driver go crash, or card freeze pc (Win 7 64 bit)
I tried anything , also some patch for "unlock" some block on drivers (mine is Crymson 17.8.2, but tested also .9 and .7) , nothing... driver crash.

Using MSI Afterburner let my driver crash also and when i use Trixx there are no differences in mining overclocking or underclocking (tested on Claymor for Eth)
Realy no differences, fixed from 11.3 to 11.4 mh/s. When driver crash, 1,9 mh/s....

I downloaded SG Miner, it wont work, and i don't understand something :

- May i use my HitBct or Youbit wallet address ?
- How can i have worker / user and password account for mining pool ?

Now i'm just setting your start.bat configuration, but i recevice this errorm than close shell : Operation successfull , saved specified value
In Italian : Operazione riuscita : valore specificato salvato.

Please help me , i want to learn but i cannot find step - by step guide.

Thank you !

I think I can understand your guide on how to start,,, but would you be able to show me where I can also find a beginner's setup guide? I have never set up even a computer (I am more noob than you will imagine) so I just want to see if I can find a list of hardware (minimum specs) along with guide on how to install them myself. I can go and buy a ready computer but I know I can save much more if I do on my own.

Any assistance is appreciated!

Start your thread here on bicointalk, guys here will help you. You don't need something special except good PSU and mobo if you want more GPUs. 3-4 GPUs would probably run on most cheap mobo with newer chipset. For 6 and more you need Z170 or Z270 is better choice or mining mobos. CPU take cheapest Celeron or Pentium that will fit. 4 or 8 RAM, 64- 128GB SSD. Gold or platinum PSU. Available GPUs for Monero take cheapest RX 570 or the one with memory heatsink for better peformance, do not buy mining cards.

mem - 2055, Samsung, ubermix3.1 timings

Claymore 9.7 - 980 H/s
XMR-Stak-AMD - 964 H/s

Not bad results I think

Not very possible i would say.
880H/s MAYBE.
With hard OC it may break 1000h/s, but these values seem for my very low for this hashrate. Yeah it might be typo.
Its possible to hit 1kH with polaris, I have done it and its not very powerwise to stay at the clocks my GPU was when I hit it.

If he gets 980hs with claymore that means he can get about 1050hs with sgminer, which to admit it would be a surprise cause he is using the ubermix strap, not some heavily customised strap.

Indeed but on windows, I've hit 1kH on linux but clocks were insane -> core 1450, mem 2300 +50mV @tw ~185W.Don't actually know the difference in hashrate compared linux/windows but there was some in favour of windows of course.

Yeah, 1400MHz on core is necessary, memory depends on timing and vendor.

My results weren't a typo.
Now I get even higher hashrate with XMR-Stak-AMD
I use Win 10 x64 and the last blockchain driver.


Key parts of my configs with high results:

Claymore Cryptonote 9.7  980 H/s
Code:
-a 4 -h 1952
 


XMR-Stak-AMD  965 H/s
Code:
"gpu_thread_num" : 1
"gpu_threads_conf" : [  { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 2016, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false } ]  
2016 is the highest itensity for one thread in fact


XMR-Stak-AMD 1010 H/s
Code:
"gpu_thread_num" : 2
"gpu_threads_conf" : [  { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1152, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false }
                        { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1152, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false }  ]


XMR-Stak-AMD 1030 H/s
Code:
"gpu_thread_num" : 2
"gpu_threads_conf" : [  { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1728, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false }
                        { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1728, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false }  ]
With this intensity my card is not very stable but I'll be experimenting with it


Maybe it helps someone to get higher hasrate.

I'll be appreciated for any donations.

Guys I have a question I'm trying to setup my rig so I can can choose a coin and mine and when I setup monero it freezes on the claymore miner and won't start up. I'm running win 10 8gb ram 1x xfx 580 8gb 1x xfx 570 4gb 2x xfx 470s and 2x msi gaming x 8gb 480s. I already created a wallet and put the right info in the files but it freezes when it looks for cards. I'm using the new blockchain driver and all cards are currently bios missed for ethereum.

What is your virtual memory page file size?
16gb if I recall. I'm not by it at the moment

I really have some difficulty getting my rig to mine XMR. I have tried many suggestions in this great thread, but i am not happy with the results of my setup. I have three Sapphire RX580 4Gb Elpida cards with modded roms (core clock 1150 /memory clock 2080 core voltage -96). These roms worked really great when i was mining Ethereum, 30+Mh/s per card with low wattage and stable on Claymore 10. However with the current difficulty of mining Eth and my electricity costs it's hardly profitable to keep mining Eth so i switched to XMR with the same setup. But it is a pain in the ***. I have tried all three miners. SGminer-5.5.5 and XMR-Stak-AMD are not stable at all and give me 700 h/s at most. Both miners will crash my Windows 10 within the hour. Claymore seems more stable, but still crashes my machine several times a day and uses much more wattage.

How do you get these setups to run stable with a nice hashrate? I think it should be possible to get at least 800+ h/s out of these cards and have a stable setup.

the intensity I've put in here is multiplied by 32*55 i've read some where that it should be multiplied by 32 lol.
again any one please guide me for SG miner. it doesnt seem to work by the OP settings mentioned. or i think i am a noob.

If you don't have memory errors, your core voltages might be too low. Try it with stock voltages also what config do you use? With stock one it will be stable, but hashrate won't be very good.

I have switched from the Blockchain Beta Aug23 drivers to the official Crimson Relive 17.7.2 drivers. The blockchain drivers gave me 3+Mh/s per GPU extra with mining ETH, but I read in this thread that it doesn't have any benefit for mining XMR. I kept the modded roms and the system seems to be much more stable with both sgminer and xmr-stak. Then I change my config to:
            "rawintensity": "512",
            "worksize": "4",
            "gpu-threads": "2"
With these settings it gets me a hashrate of ~378H/s per thread in xmr-stak (which I prefer), so 756 per GPU with 330Watt. I think it should be possible to get better hashrates, but not without using more wattage.

If you don't have memory errors, your core voltages might be too low. Try it with stock voltages also what config do you use? With stock one it will be stable, but hashrate won't be very good.

I finally managed to get my system stable at a nice hashrate of ~865H/s per GPU. I noticed a lot of memory errors with HWInfo (+350000 within an hour) using this downloaded bios from the Anorek forum, so I think that was the cause of the crashes. I took the stock bios from one of my GPU's, changed it with the optimized Elpida memory timings, changed the clocks to 1150/2080 (same as the Anorek rom) and set the voltage to 975mV. I still have memory errors, but not as much as it used to be. The system is using a bit more power (330W -> 350W), but the hashrate increased from 2260H/s to 2600H/s and so far no system reboot after 12 hours!  :)

Anyone run better straps for that memory type?

This cards been a pain to get stable or even running even with the stock bios. I'm currently stable with these settings though.

I run over 30 1080(tis) and 8 VEGA and havent had this much of an issue to get a card stable and at proper hashrates. I've had samsung and elpida RX 480 cards previously and those were easy to mod and get stable.

Hi ya all, pardon my ignorance being a newbie in xmr,

Just a curious question, is it normal in sgminer-gm 5.5.5 mining xmr with poworcolor rx470 4g(elpida) clocking 1106@2025  to have such a big difference in hash rate(-20%) in the same hardware different os, same config --rawintensity 752 -w 8 -g 2,

windows10(beta blockchain 11aug)
 avg 861h/s each gpu
linux ubuntu 17.04(dagfix installed)
 avg 695h/s each gpu

while mining ethereum, I got 30mh/s in windows, a fraction bit lower 29.6mh in linux with the same conditions.

Please lead me to the right direction and point me out what could be wrong?

Thank you so much.

Just a curious question, is it normal in sgminer-gm 5.5.5 mining xmr with poworcolor rx470 4g(elpida) clocking 1106@2025  to have such a big difference in hash rate(-20%) in the same hardware different os, same config --rawintensity 752 -w 8 -g 2,

windows10(beta blockchain 11aug)
 avg 861h/s each gpu
linux ubuntu 17.04(dagfix installed)
 avg 695h/s each gpu

while mining ethereum, I got 30mh/s in windows, a fraction bit lower 29.6mh in linux with the same conditions.

Please lead me to the right direction and point me out what could be wrong?

Thank you so much.




Having same problem. You can put higher intensity, but gpu threads does nothing in linux, at least for me.

i get around 925hs 1130/2050 approx 85-90w for the whole gpu for a sapphire 470 8g
That's very good, what miner do you use?

sgminer 5.5.5 gm

What parameters do you use under linux? I get 1k on windows with sgminer, but a lot less on linux with same parameters: ri 896, w 8, g 2. Found that gpu threads don't really have an effect in linux (it's like it's stuck to 1).

Thank you Christiano88, indeed ri 896 give it a lil boost, still a distance away

XMR-Stak-AMD 1030 H/s
Code:
"gpu_thread_num" : 2
"gpu_threads_conf" : [  { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1728, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false }
                        { "index" : 0, "intensity" : 1728, "worksize" : 8, "affine_to_cpu" : false }  ]


First off I want to thank Mattthev for his guide which i studied for two days straight trying to understand and not just mimic and the other 50 straps i tinkered with  ;D
I'm wondering if these hashrates are fluctuating too much and how bad this is for my MSI RX480 Gaming X 8gb ?

Did you build this yourself? I switched recently from xmr-stak-amd to sgminer, because xmr-stak-amd was just 'freezing' after a while. It's just like people are mentioning in https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak-amd/issues/110. Sgminer doesn't seem to crash, at least not since i started it. I really liked xmr-stak-amd because of the webinterface and the statistics. However, i see that issue 110 is still open, so i am not sure if i should try xmr-stak again. It is really annnoying to see that my rig is eating electricity, but no hashes are generated.

Yes I've built it, it has some bugs, this bug occured also in seperate versions sometimes. You may try it now, we fixed some build problems, download again.

Ok, so I tried it, but had some struggles. First it didn't start properly, because there was a part missing in the generated amd.txt about "gpu_thread_num". Luckely I had my old config file so I could add this part to the amd.txt config. But then I noticed that this new miner also uses my CPU and I couldn't find where to turn this off. It also complains about "Memory alloc failed: virtualAlloc failed" errors all the time. I have LARGE PAGE SUPPORT configured properly. Overall my hashrate went down from 2600 h/sec to 1800 h/sec so I am back to sgminer.

Yeah, I will add these instructions. Just make bat file with --nocpu, I wrote about the problem with gpus thread just put the line from instructions here to the AMD.txt and change number of cards or thread if you use 2 threads.

I tried the --nocpu parameter, but it does not exist:

Back to sgminer again  ;D

UPDATE: Wow, the correct parameter is '--noCPU' (https://github.com/fireice-uk/xmr-stak/blob/dev/doc/usage.md#command-line-options), case-sensitive... on Windows! What do you know.

I've updated the instructions for XMR-STAK, I haven't tried it without CPU yet :D The hashrate is little bit lower then with XMR-STAK-AMD, but it's only pre-release. I will update Windows binary every week if there will be changes.

I tried the new xmr-stak but not sure how multiple threads work

I tried 6 threads on 3 cards but got weird results followed by crash

3 Vega Fe with 64GB ram

5.6 MH/s  ;D ;D ;D , pity it wasn't real!

I played around with other higher numbers but kept locking up

That would be great :D
There are VEGA recommended values for XMR-STAK for 2 threads in the VEGA thread.
This is unofficial pre-release... it might not be stable enough.

Ok, I have switched back to sgminer from xmr-stak-2.0. Sgminer gives me slightly more hashes (2602h/sec vs 2590h/sec average) and my rig uses a bit less power with sgminer (345 vs 350 Watt). Also it has 0% dev fee vs 1% for xmr-stak.

It's not meant for stable mining. You can disable fees when building in donate-level.h. You might tried 2 threads and also play with intensity, it seems to be different from AMD version.

Hi!! is normal that the amount of share is very slow compared with monero? i see that the block found is higher in sumokoin, but i get 30 shares in 1 hour, with monero i was reached the same amount in 3-5 min, in my case.

Depends on diff, on some pools you can set diff and some have only variable diff.

How do I set config.txt if I have 4 RX cards and just one Vega and just want to use the Vega?  I assume gpu_thread_num should be set to 1 and index should be set to what I think the index should be (in my case 4)?

I can't get it working with any index value though.

Yes thread is 1, but index might be 0, 1, 2, 3, not 4.

Hello,

I've been experimenting with Monero mining recently (STAK miner on Win10 Pro/Edu) and I'm facing kind of a weird issue; I tried on 2 laptops, a 5-6 years old one with an i7-3630QM + GT 635M, and a new one with i7-7700HQ + GTX 950M.
The GPUs scale as they should the GTX 950M gives me more than double the hashrate of the GT 635M.
But the CPUs don't! the 3630QM maxes out at ~180 H/s with 3 threads and large page support, while the i7-7700HQ barely touches 120 H/s + it doesn't scale beyond 2 threads and large page support doesn't help much either!

So, any ideas or tips?


UPDATE: Never mind, seems like it was a drivers issue, and now it is at least on par with the old one.

Thanks for the awesome guide on mining coins. Just started mining SumoKoins recently. Your guide was all i needed to setup the miner.

However, as a newbie there is one thing i cannot understand. How are koins / coins distributed to the pool? I keep finding a lot of new blocks. However, i don't seem to be getting the sumos to match it. I am probably missing something - but though should ask and learn.

thanks for your help in advance. and apologize if this is a stupid question.

Hash rate around 400-500 H/s. Using the official pool which has around 650 miners. I got like 3.2 coins over the first 24 hours of mining (which is about the rate which the official pool calculator shows up)
But am a little confused about the "New Block detected" messages.

That's a new block detected by the network if I'm not mistaken, not necessarily by you. The hashrate and accepted results is what matters.

I know that this is probably not the right thread to post this, but I am sure I found some blocks with mining sumokoin. I found a share with a difficulty above 1G at least two times, where the difficulty is about 500-700M. I also see in the small mining pool I use that a new block has been found in the period these 1G+ shares were found. However, sgminer won't show anything about the found blocks. It stays at 0 blocks found.

Is this something that I have to configure in the config, is it a bug, or is it something related to sumokoin?

You jsut hit enter end it will start mine again? I don't know how it works with Linux but with Windows, cmd->properties and uncheck quick edit mode.

No it won't; the shell prompt doesn't respond. killing the process and restarting the miner won't help either.  I feel the gpu's are locked in a particular state and doesn't respond until a hard reset.

That is most likely OC or undervolt problem, not miner.

Yup feel that too.  undervolt or overclock problem.  most likely core volt?  as Eth mining runs for weeks without issue.

Im using XMR-AEON-STAK-2.0-20171107-CUDA-9-win64  and mining xmr at ViaXMR pool (diff. is about 5000).  and my i7-7700 is showing over 50% use by the process.
I have 32GB RAM, and GTX 1070.
Any idea if this is a bug?

Cuz, I wouldn't mind running a cpu miner too.. but can't do that with this kinda usage by the gpu miner.

Thanks.

Can you try with the '--noCPU' parameter? That should disable cpu mining.

ok. so.. does that mean its currently mining using gpu AND cpu.
If that's the case, I'd just leave it alone.

I thought it was only mining with gpu,, but was using  cpu for some verifications or resubmisisons or some such activity, and not mining with it.

D

editl...   dUH,   yes. i just realized its dual mining gpu and cpu.  sillyme..  going blind on trying out different miners.. i lost track of the facts .

There should be bat file called nocpu. You can run it without CPU with that file. Or you can edit cpu.txt for CPU mining config.

Under "good results" on the web page, I assume outdated shares would count against that right?  With Cast XMR I typically get 10-13% outdated shares but so far I'm getting 100% good shares with XMR Stak.

I'm trying to config sgminer 5.5.5 in Simplemining OS for my rigs.  It looks like it is using the commandline to pass in arguments. In SMOS the default is:

--no-submit-stale --kernel cryptonight -o stratum+tcp://cryptonight.usa.nicehash.com:3355 -u [yourwallet].$rigName -p x --rawintensity 1000 -w 8 --text-only

I would like to change the rawintensity, worksize etc to be optimized for my miners. I have two different setups, either RX 570 4G or RX580 8G.

For the RX570 4G I'm trying to pass a --rawintensity 512 --worksize 4. For the RX580 8G, I'm trying to pass --rawintensity 1152 --worksize 8.

However, when I do this, I see no change in performance. Also, when it initializes, I don't see any values changing, just shows: Initialising kernel cryptonight.cl with nfactor 10, n 1024.

It also looks like that it is getting its initialization parameters from the pool:

[21:54:08] Startup GPU initialization... Using settings from pool cryptonight.usa.nicehash.com.
[21:54:08] Startup Pool No = 0
[21:54:08] Building binary cryptonightEllesmeregw8l8.bin

Right now I'm only hashing at 480H/s on the 570 and 677H/s on the RX580. With Claymore I was getting 630H/s and 740H/s respectively.

I've also seen people change the gpu-threads to 2. Does this matter on the RX570 or RX580 cards? Should I be changing these values too?

Thanks.

No it won't; the shell prompt doesn't respond. killing the process and restarting the miner won't help either.  I feel the gpu's are locked in a particular state and doesn't respond until a hard reset.
That is most likely OC or undervolt problem, not miner.

Yup feel that too.  undervolt or overclock problem.  most likely core volt?  as Eth mining runs for weeks without issue.

Yup was the undervolt/TDP/TDC on a particular card.  Changed it and now has been happy.

So I've been fiddling around with settings for my 6x Sapphire RX470 4GB Mining Edition (Samsung) rig.

Result: 870 h/s per card.

SGminer 5.5.5 gm

Rawintensity: 520
Worksize: 8
Gpu-threads: 2

Bios flash: Ubermix
Afterburner OC: Core: 1400 MHz, Memory: 1930 MHz

I see recommendations for higher memory clocks, but anything over 1930 MHz is causing crashes / sick gpus. I don't know if that's the max these gpus can do or have I messed something up in settings.

Power draw for the 6x gpu rig at the wall: 950 W. I know it's a bit high. I tried undervolting in OverdriveNTool and failed. When I decreased the mV values by 10 or 20 mV, nothing happened, when I tried 40 mV, system crashed. Tried decreasing dynamic core mV-s in Polaris bios editor by 1 or 2 and setting memory voltage to 950 mV, also no effect on wattage whatsoever. Undervolting bar in Afterburner is grayed out (doesn't help if I enable it in settings). I'm out of ideas. One way to decrease wattage is to lower core clock, but that hurts the hashrate too much IMO, for example when I clock core to 1320 MHz, hashrate per gpu drops by 20 h/s and power draw per rig drops by 30 W.

Any ideas about memory clocking and undervolting welcome.

This is some hard OC there :D 1400MHz on core only if you have free electricity... good for games only :D
You can OC the memory above 2000MHz but you need better timings.

Just started mining this tonight on an MSI Armor OC Rx 570.  I'm just using the bios mods I had set for Eth mining, so I'm at 1268 Clock, 1750 mem, hashing at 738 - 744 H/s only using 88.7 W at the wall.  I am undervolting to 900mv in bios.  I could probably increase that to 950 or 975 and get better hashing speeds, but I think its a good balance between hashrate and power consumption.  The current benefit is that my fan runs hella slow (QUIET!!!) and GPU temp is only 58c.

I lowered it to 20 and it's working now. Not really impressed with my cards performance though from what I seen these 1070 ti's at best are only getting around 700h/s per card. My cards are hitting at around 660h/s each. I think with some fine tuning I might be able to hit that 700h/s.

GPU 1303/2150 -  total consumption 760W - hashrate 2818 h/s  https://imgur.com/meypJfR

I've also tried xmr-stack 1.4 and 2.0 (30 h / s better) have similar results:

GPU 1303/2150 - total consumption 645W - hashrate 2732 h/s  https://imgur.com/0FM5EL1

Bios card is original without modifications and config files are basics.
Does anyone have better results or are they a regular result ?
I have MSI 4xRX480 8gb, win7 64bit and driver 17.2.1.

Lots of things can be done.  Read the thread.
You can get 750+ with ease and 800-850 with additional tweaks.

I would say 90-100W.
You're probably right cause that's what I was having on Linux 9 cards - 935w from wall (including cpu ~35w and measured using KAW) .  I'll check with KAW once and if I manage to revive it.

Experimental 2.  Got 915 H/s Now

Hello,

I'm having some troubles finding a solid configuration for my setup:
E6850 @ 3.0 GHz
4GB RAM
Win 10 x64
Beta mining drivers
2x Gigabyte RX580 8gb

currently using Claymore miner with -h 1850, and the cards 1130 core and 2220 mem clock, but can achieve only some 630H/s.
I also tried the amdStak miner, but got similar results.

Any ideas what could be done or where could be the bottlenect, to get to some 700k/H withoud bios mod.

best regards,
MtD

Thank you. I'll read this whole thread. Good result 915 h/s. I have no experience with bios mod. That's why I wanted some of the best GPU settings.

Another question,

when searching for a good config, what's the better option, get a good miner config wtih highest possible hashrate and then fine tune with core/mem clock or the other way around?

best regards,
MtD

It's better to OC cards first and then play with config.

So about a week ago, I downloaded the modified xmr-stak.
The config has the default pool set to "xmr.crypto-pool.fr:3333" and I saw no reason to change it.
I couldn't sleep early this morning and out of curiosity, I decided to look them up and the first result was actually this (https://www.sophos.com/en-us/medialibrary/PDFs/technical-papers/Cryptomining-malware-on-NAS-servers.pdf?la=en) crypto malware report.
I panicked thinking I was compromised but after reading it more, from what I can gather, the malware is using members of the pool to mine crypto?
As in, the pool itself isn't necessarily responsible, it's just that the pool, or members within the pool, is/are infected in some way?
Am I getting that right?
My computer seems to be running normally and I don't see any odd background processes, but I figured I'd rather bring this up than not, being that I came here for the download link.

Hello,

Thank you for this amazing thread !

I want to share my monero mining results, it's my first experience.

So, I mine with 1 ASUS Dual-RX480-O4G and 1 Saphir RX 580 Nitro + 4G with XMR-Stak on WIN 10 and with Crimson Relive 17.11.1 for both.

Results :

563 h/s for the 480
627 h/s for the 580

Do you know if I can improve my mining rate ?

Thank you in advance, have a nice day.

I'm going to assume you didn't actually read the link.
I'm not saying my antivirus software picked it up as malware.
I may be new, but I'm not that basic.

What I'm saying is that the link is describing, at least as I understand it, very literal malware that is copying itself to numerous systems, using their mining power, and slotting the mined crypto into the attacker's wallet.
In case I'm not clear enough, a human beingnot an appdid an investigation and typed up an entire report on the matter. That's what the link is.

Hey Guys!

I'm back in the mining biz. Have been Hodling my bitcoin and now I have got the itch to start mining again.
Looks like monero will be my target.

I am at that stage where i'm trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can and my head is spinning. I am hoping someone could help direct my focus.

located in Canada
cost per KWH: aprrox 6.5 cents per kw hour (US)
Goal: build a GPU mining rig

I have ordered a couple of Nvidia GTX 1060's 4GB just to stick in a couple of computers i have lying around, just to play around with different configs. My expectation for this card is to get about 525 H/S for about 50w once optimized.

Before I go out an buy 6 or 8 cards for a rig i wanted to get familiar and find the best card in terms of speed and energy efficiency and purchase price.

Now that i have already ordered the 1060's I stumbled upon some RX580's , cost a bit more to buy, more to run, but seem to put out more hashes. Once configured and maybe bios modded, what do you think the RX580 will do? 890 MH/s at 95 watts?

Seeing as my hydro costs are fairly low, perhaps I should be looking at AMD?

one more question, resale value? Should i be concerned? What about moded firmaware, can that be restored to stock before i sell the AMD? I have heard the Nvidia do better on resale? True? or nothing really to worry about?

The PSU I ordered is  EVGA SuperNOVA 850 https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438092


If AMD is the way to go,I can always return the Nvidias 1060's i have coming or stick them in some other pcs I have lying around.

So ideally, what would you suggest for the rig? 6 AMD rx580s'  or like 8 Nvidia 1060's . What would be the best way to max out that power supply? Any good motherboard suggestions would be appreciated!

RX 570 are probably better, the hashrate is almost same and they are way cheaper at least in EU. Still it depends on memory you will have and silicon lottery... 1060 is not very good for XMR and I'm not sure about those 50W and 500+H/s.

Thanks for the reply, I have found the rx570's for sale and they appear to be competitively priced and have a better output than the Nvidias 1060.

I am wondering about the bios mods for these RX570's. Where can I find out about them?


<<<edit>>> ooops! i see that you give some info in this thread, I'll read the whole thing, then come back with my newb questions!

any idea which card will give me the most bang for the buck?

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=rx570&N=-1&isNodeId=1


<<edit>>

bought a card locally for testing, it's a SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 570 4GB , bought it cause it seems to advertise a faster clock and overclock, than the others, i'll let you know how it does stock, and then we'll see what can be done to give it a bump.
