41  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / HELP: Temperature high in custom closed air rig on: April 12, 2018, 08:43:46 PM
Just today I transformed my 12*1050ti tower rig (6 on each side) into closed air rig with one exaust and 2 intake fans
 But to my surprise the temperature of gpus increased by 4 Celsius. What could be wrong ? My exaust is very powerful and so are my two intake fans. So the pressure should be fine. My rig is still not completely vaccum. There are many big holes that needs to be filled. Will making it completely vaccum decrease the temp ?

EDIT : Temperature increased by 7 celcius

Before :   

After attaching fiber sheet and fans :
42  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Intel developing new dedicated GPUs !!! on: April 12, 2018, 10:32:33 AM
Hope this new GPU will be very good in mining.

"Intel Is Developing A Desktop Gaming GPU To Fight Nvidia, AMD

It’s no secret Intel wants to return to the dedicated GPU market, but we were previously led to believe its plan would revolve around designing a GPU for data centers. Those plans, however, will be extended to the PC gaming space to compete with the duopoly of Nvidia and AMD by the year 2020.

Intel signaled their intent to re-enter the dGPU market for the first time in roughly 20 years with the hiring of former Radeon Technologies Group boss and chief architect Raja Koduri last December. For more proof, simply peek at the whopping 102 graphics-centric jobs the juggernaut chipmaker is hiring for.

The project, widely reportedly under the codename Arctic Sound, was originally conceived as a standalone project targeted at data centers. However, Motley Fool analyst Ashraf Eassa recently tweeted that Koduri is splitting Arctic Sound into two distinct parts:

"Bonus: Apparently @Rajaontheedge is redefining Arctic Sound (first Intel dGPU), was originally targeted for video streaming apps in data center, but now being split into two: the video streaming stuff and gaming. Apparently wants to “enter the market with a bang.”

— Ashraf Eassa (@TMFChipFool) April 6, 2018

[Clarification: This technically won't be Intel's first dGPU. Its first was the Intel i740.]

Eassa confirmed this with multiple sources, and I spoke independently with a source of my own to back up this statement. I’m confident this is more than rumor and speculation.

We’ve seen recent efforts by Intel to paint a more positive picture of their graphics prowess (or lack thereof if we’re being honest with each other), Kaby Lake G being a prime example. The flagship PC boasting that part, bolstered by AMD’s integrated Radeon Vega graphics, can deliver 1080p gaming on Ultra settings in a system half the size of an Xbox One or PS4, blowing past Nvidia’s GTX 1050 Ti (itself a dedicated gaming GPU) and AMD’s recent Ryzen desktop processors with integrated Vega graphics.

Kaby Lake G also puts Intel’s previous integrated HD graphics to shame, and that’s an image the company surely wants the public to view in a different light over the next few years.

ExtremeTech’s Joel Hruska offers more insight into Intel’s history of integrated graphics and their ability to design dedicated GPUs here.

This revelation does call into question how long the unusual partnership between Intel and AMD will last. Right now incorporating Vega graphics into Intel’s CPU lineup makes sense for both companies, but the presence of Koduri will allow Intel to both develop competitive gaming GPUs, and evolve their own integrated graphics solutions.

Koduri is currently working closely with Intel engineers to develop a longterm roadmap for graphics.

One thing I’m absolutely certain of: if you think about the impact of Nvidia’s GeForce Partner Program on the competitive landscape, as well as AMD’s weak GPU roadmap over the next couple years (do they have anything to combat Nvidia’s Turing architecture this year?), there is no better time for a third competitor to crash the party.

Simply put, many inside and outside the industry are concerned that Nvidia is slowly and shrewdly shaping itself into a monopoly.

I will emphasize that none of this is confirmed by Intel (nor will they confirm it), but the whispers are pointing to a dedicated Intel gaming GPU near 2020. There’s no question Intel has the cash, R&D resources and manpower to pull this off. The big question is how exactly they will “enter the market with a bang.” It will take an outstanding product right out of the gate, aggressive and clever marketing, and healthy dose of patience."

44  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Masternodes HW/SW requirements ? on: April 05, 2018, 09:24:24 PM
Hello guys. I have some question about masternodes HW/SW requirements. Please help me out.

1. What hardware is recommend for running multiple masternodes. Some say that you can even run it on raspberry pi. Is that recommended ?
     I was thinking of turning my old desktop into a cryptocurrency wallet and masternode machine.

2. Can you use that machine for doing something else too or do we just dedicate it completely for masternodes. Do you remove the monitor like in mining
    rig ?

3. Which OS is recommended

4. I see that you need a different IP for each masternode which could cost me $5/month per IP with vps. So is there any other option (free?).
45  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / AMD mining DEAD NOW with Bitmain E3 on: April 04, 2018, 12:16:59 PM
Do you think that AMD cards will be completely out of the mining game now due to ethash miners ? What is the future of Vega rigs now ?

Is there any possibility that AMD will manufacture a new gpu with mining in mind ?
46  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Confusion with MasterNodes on: April 03, 2018, 10:06:45 PM
Hello guys,

So please help me clear some doubts about masternodes :

1. Do you have multiple computers if you have more then one cryptocurrency masternodes. ?

2. Suppose 1000 coins are required for running a masternode then if I have 2000 coins can I run 2 masternodes ?

3. Do you store your wallet in the same computer that is running masternode ?

     I was thinking of making my old desktop into a cryptocurrency wallet which will also run multiple masternodes (if possible or safe)

4. What should I look for before investing in masternodes. I see some of them with ROI of 7-15 days, should I avoid them ?

Thanks a lot

Hello guys. I don't know much about linux. I was mining on Hive OS with a USB wifi adapter and wireless 4g dongle.

Now I bought a broadband connection and I have connected the ethernet cable on motherboard but there is no net connection on HIVE OS. Ethernet cable has lightened up but no internet. There is internet in modem but not on Hive OS. Maybe I have to set it up. Please help. Here's what I see when I type ifconfig command :

EDIT: Sorry to spoil the forum. After a few restarts, now somehow it is wrking.
49  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Powering Risers with non-motherboard connect PSU on: March 21, 2018, 08:25:09 PM
I have read mixed opinion on this one. Some say to power you risers with only the PSU connected to motherboard while some say it not a problem.

I recently built my first rig - 12*1050ti powering it two 750w PSU connected through spiliter.

I am powering half of my cards and their risers with one PSU and vice versa. So half of my risers are powered by PSU that is not connected to motherboard. Can it cause problems ?

EDIT : I think you guys are getting me wrong. I am powering my GPU and it's riser with same PSU.  But 6 of my GPU and the riser to which they are connected are powered by a PSU that is not connected to motherboard. I read somewhere that all risers should be powered by PSU that is connected to motherboard.

Hi guys,

What do you think will get me more altcoins. Mining it or buying it from mined ethereum.

Just in general, what will be better for new altcoins or unpopular or popular altcoins (if it makes any difference).
51  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / HELP : URGENT running HIVE OS Error grub !!! Please on: March 14, 2018, 11:55:08 AM
Hi guys, I am trying to run my first rig on Hive OS and I have already made one of my pen drives almost dead.

Now I have installed it on my second pen drive and it gives the following :

error : unknown file system
Entering rescue mode....
grub Rescue>_

Please tell how can remove the grub error from my second pendrive.

(I ran it successfully on my first pen drive and it also started mining but then after a few shut downs, it stopped working.
Now it doesn't load and is stuck on a black screen with a blinking "_". The pendrive is not recognised on Win10 and I am unable to format it even in safe mode command prompt.)

EDIT : I installed it on my scond pen drive again and now it's working BUT how can I repair my 1st pen drive. It does not connect in Win10 and on my rig it just gets stuck on black screen with "_" blinking.

52  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Claymore or Ethminer on: March 12, 2018, 08:21:46 AM
Please tell which is better for my 1050ti rig. Claymore or Ethminer for mining etherium only.

I like to think that Ethminer is better because I will be mining etherium only. I will be using Hive OS.

54  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / [b]HELP : Correct way to power risers ?[/b] on: March 11, 2018, 05:27:45 PM
Hello guys,

I am trying to setup my hardware. Can you please tell me how do I power my risers ? My risers have a 6-pin, molex and a SATA port.
It has VER008s written on it.

I will be using 6-pin cord to power my 1050ti. So how do I power them ? I have non-modular PSU.

Please see what cables my PSU has.

Thank You
55  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / HELP : Best way to power Risers & what is the best miner on: March 10, 2018, 07:44:30 PM
Please tell me how do I power my risers. I have 2 Antec 750W PSUs (non modular) which will power my 12*1050 ti rig. My riser have a SATA, molex and 6-pin slot. The retailer from which I bought my mining stuff was powering the same rig and risers with SATA on a modular PSU.

Also which is the best miner is for mining etherium only. Do people still use ethminer ? I think claymore is better suitable for dual mining. Is bminer any good ?

I will mine using Hive OS. Also point me towards best wallet and pool.

Thanks a lot guys, you are the best.
56  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Help URGENT ! Setting up FIRST RIG on: March 10, 2018, 04:34:12 AM
Hello guys,

I am trying to setup my first rig but I have run into few problems, please help me :

1. I bought 2 Antec 750W gold PSUs (non modular). How do I run them ? Do you plug PSU directly into the wall or do you use extension (I have read that extension are bad) or that thing that has many sockets (it's also extension I think). Also, I also don't know how to run two PSUs on single motherboard for mining.

2. Please tell me how to connect all of the rig with PSU. I have 12 1050ti, a 12 GPU Mora motherboard. 2 Antec Classic Power 750W Gold (non modular).

3. Can sudden power out cause damage to my rig ? My town gets no electricity for a few minutes everyday randomly, I do have a UPS inverter for my home.

4. Can I use USB dongle (4g) or WIFI for internet or it's no good compared to LAN. If LAN is necessary how much data plan is good, how much data will it consume everyday ? Does the connection needs to be 100% constant ? What if the connection breaks for a few sec or minutes.  

UPDATE : #1 looks like solved. I inserted a safety pin(which is used on cloths) in 24 pin connector instead of a paper clip and ran the PSU. It worked, the PSUs fan started running. #2 I figured that out and also #4
57  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Urgent HELP Selecting Hardware (PSU) on: March 07, 2018, 06:59:26 PM
Hi guys,

I will purchase 5 GTX 1070 today. Can you suggest how much powerful PSU will be good enough. I will be adding 3 more cards later and run full 8 gpus on the motherboard. Is Gold rating for PSU worth it ? My electricity rate is 0.08$

Should I buy two PSUs instead of one (I am budget conscious)

Also please tell me the best and the second best CPU for my rig (In case first one is not available to me).

Also should I go for a USB 3.0 Pendrive or SSD ?
