1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / One PSU hotter than other on: June 19, 2019, 03:23:25 AM
My rig has 9*RX570 which runs on two Antec HCG 1000 PSU. One PSU which powers the MB through a dual PSU power cable spilliter has 4 GPUs and the other one has 5 GPUs.

The PSU which has 5 GPUs is very hot compared to the main PSU (4 GPU + MB). My city temperature is 30-40C. Do you think it could be due to PSU spilliter cable? I am thinking of ordering Add2PSU and replace the spilliter cable. Btw my GPUs are undervolted and bios modded.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Auto Power up mining rig after power loss ? on: November 11, 2018, 07:32:10 AM
I want to relocate my mining rigs to my uncle's house who has free electricity and the only thing that is stopping me is how will they power up after power loss. My uncle doesn't stay at the place.
Is there something that can be done in the BIOS ? I remember there was a option in my desktop to power up after power loss or something like that .
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / HELP: Hard Drive formatted without wallet backup on: October 16, 2018, 08:21:18 AM
I recently formatted my hard disk but I forgot to backup this one coin that I started mining recently. I only have it's public address now. I don't have the json file or private keys etc.

It was desktop wallet installed in C drive. I didn't delete the partitions.

So what are my options now to recover my balance. Any software that you guys know of ?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Which Algo will be hit next by ASICs ? on: September 13, 2018, 07:38:15 PM
There are not many left. Not many left that have big market cap at least. Which one do you think will be next ?
I think Lyra2v2 or neoscrypt.

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Bitcoin Mining with TV !!!!! on: August 03, 2018, 10:28:00 AM
"Canaan Creative, a China-based second largest producer of bitcoin mining rigs, has launched the world's first bitcoin mining television set.  Called 'AvalonMiner Inside', the TV set will work on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and will have voice-activated functions.

With the AvalonMiner Inside, the company aims to bring bitcoin mining right to people’s homes. The TV set could mean a greater decentralization on the bitcoin network.  AvalonMiner Inside set has a hash rate (computing rate) of 2.8 trillion hashes per second whereas the most powerful mining hardware my Canaan has a hash rate of 11 trillion hashes per second.

The TV set is also equipped with an in-built real-time mining profitability calculator which would help the customers assess the device’s performance. The bitcoins mined by the TV can be spent on products available at the store platform by Canaan Creative. The products include physical gifts and entertainment packages.

This is the first in a series of “blockchain-related home appliances” that will use the AvalonMiner Inside. The device is a part of Canaan Creative’s attempt to widen the user base and bring in more appliances integrated with bitcoin mining capabilities as well as blockchain technology.

The AvalonMiner will be distributed to retail businesses who can supply them to customers. With the new TV set, Canaan Creative now has a line of two products in Hong Kong.  The company is planning to launch more blockchain related products in the future.

The launch of TV set comes following the company's initial public offering (IPO) application in Hong Kong in May of this year, which is expected to raise $1 billion.  Canaan Creative's rival Bitmain is also reportedly coming up with an IPO soon.  Bitmain made over a billion dollars in profit in the first quarter of this year and has set a target of $2 to $3 billion as profits of the entire year. Canaan, on the other hand, reported nearly $205 million worth of revenue in 2017."
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / PirateBay proxies secretly mining crypto on: July 12, 2018, 09:20:09 AM
This was probably my first encounter with with website that secretly mine crypto from using your PC.

I was downloading a torrent and minimised the browser as there were installation instructions on the download page and after sometime I noticed my laptop getting hot then normal so I opened task manager and saw that CPU Usage was 80%. I closed the tab and then it came down to normal 9%. If I was on PC then it would be even more difficult to notice.

This is the proxy but they probably all do this now.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / HiveOS Overclocking in Afterburner ??? (Power Limit and Temp locked too) on: July 04, 2018, 10:43:30 AM
My OC in HiveOS for RX 570 are : CORE 1200, DPM 1, V 970, MEM 2100

What will be these settings in Afterburner ?

I can see Core, Memory and Voltage but how to set Core State (DPM) which is set to 1 in HiveOS ?

And my Temp and PowerLimit are locked(greyed). I have installed and uninstalled (with ddu) latest and second latest AMD drivers and also installed various versions of Afterburner but still no luck.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / RX 570 BIOS mod help (power consumption now) on: July 01, 2018, 05:55:24 AM
I recently got a few Sapphire pulse RX 570 4g OC model (Hynix/Elpida). They were giving 24 mh/s out of the box on eth. I tried 1 click Polaris Bios but it did not do anything.
After overclocking on HiveOS (Core 1150, Memory 2100) I get 25-26.4 Mh/s. I have flashed these BIOS too ( but still not much difference max I can get is 26.xx Mh/s

What can I do ?

EDIT : Finally somehow managed to bring my gpu to 30.4 MH/s but it is consuming b/w 111W-141W (reported by HiveOS online GUI), how can I decrease it without significantly affecting hashrate. Btw I don't mine eth, this is for testing only, I will mine cryptonight or lyra2v2 so please tell me best optimisation.

current OC: Core- 1250, Mem- 2100
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / How to repair bricked/corrupted flash drive ? on: June 30, 2018, 09:49:20 AM
i have three flash drives which I bricked over the time by burning HiveOS on them. Any ideas how to repair them ? I have tried Diskpart and EaseUS Partition Master but the flash drives just ejects.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Is Bios Mod really necessary for AMD ? (Or Afterburner is enough) on: June 27, 2018, 02:55:23 PM
I have only Nvidia rigs so I haven't felt the need to bios mod. Just software OC is working good for me.
My electricity costs $.06
But now I have some RX 570, so is bios modding worth it or software OC is enough ?
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / PSU for RX 570 rig ?(solved) on: June 27, 2018, 02:52:21 AM
How much PSU is good for 5 and 6 RX 570 rig ?

I am getting 8 RX 570 which I will upgrade to either 10 or 12 gpu.

I will be using 2 PSUs (gold). So 1 PSU for 5 or 6 gpus.

Edit : bought 1000W gold Antec PSU for 5 cards.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Who is making the most profit : Retailer or Distributor on: June 25, 2018, 12:13:38 PM
I read somewhere that NVIDIA and AMD partners are not increasing the prices, their margin is still same as it was before mining boom.
Where I live GPUs are coming with increased MRP on the box and official distributors are the one who put them. So does it mean that official distributors are taking the biggest cut or is it the retailers ?
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Isn't CPU mining more profitable then GPU mining ? on: June 22, 2018, 04:48:20 AM
So I was thinking about this, when a coin is new you can only mine using cpu. During that time you can mine a lot coins per day with only your CPU. Now if the project becomes successful then GPU mining won't be much profitable for long due to increased difficulty but you already hold a lot of coins from CPU mining.

I mean theorytically CPU mining is way more profitable then GPU mining, if you can get in at the right time. Could there be guys who only by mine by cpu(and making profit) even if they could easily afford gpu rigs
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / RX 570 8GB V RX 580 4GB ??? on: June 21, 2018, 06:49:20 PM
If you have to choose one out these 3 which will you choose for mining :

1. msi Armour 570 8gb

2. Sapphire pulse 570 4gb

3. Sapphire Nitro+ 580 4gb      

Both 570 are priced same but 580 costs $50 extra.

I think i will choose Armour 570 because it is 8gb which might be useful for mining certain algos like Cryptonight but then I think it is inferior to Sapphire in quality or hashrate.

Edit : Also DAG is not a problem because eth will go POS before it crosses 4gb and I think there are better coins then ETH.

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Best pick this month ? on: June 12, 2018, 07:23:22 AM
Hello, I want to invest my mined ethereum into some other cryptos. As the market is at it's low this looks like a right time to enter. Please tell which coin or token you think is good to buy right now.

Also i was thinking of buying Dent for some time. It looks like a quality project. Do u think it is any good for investing.
Edit: I just want some options, of course I am gonna do my own research.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Isn't Hard disk mining ASIC & FPGA safe ? on: June 07, 2018, 09:52:39 PM
I apologize if this feels silly question but I was thinking isn't Hard Disk mining like storj or burst safe from ASICs ?

Edit : I don't want to mine them, just wanted to clear some doubts.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Higher temp if mining in Win10 on: June 02, 2018, 07:28:01 PM
I just started mining on Win10 (before I was on HiveOS). My GPUs are approx running at least 10C higher then they were on HiveOS. I have tested 2-3 algos and results are same. Is this normal ? if not what could be causing this ? What setting might be wrong ? I am not an expert in Afterburner maybe some problem there ? Previously I was OCing using HiveOS web GUI which works differently then Afterburner.
