1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Marlin - SiaCoin OpenCL/CUDA Miner - CPU/GPU/iGPU on: September 21, 2016, 06:43:54 PM
Marlin - OpenCL/CUDA miner for SiaMining.com
==============================================

Up to date info and download links: https://siamining.com/marlin

Info:

Marlin is a new Stratum miner for OpenCL and CUDA devices developed by SiaMining. It is designed to be fast, lightweight and easy to use.

Notable features:

  • Native Stratum support with SiaMining.com.
  • Lightning fast with both AMD and Nvidia GPUs.
  • Multiple built-in kernels.
  • Kernel and intensity can be set separately for each device.
  • Detection of hardware errors.
  • Detailed share reporting, including difficulties and reject reasons.
  • Throttling support

Usage:

Code:
marlin -u YourPayoutAddress.WorkerName -I 28

  • By default, the miner connects to SiaMining.com's Stratum server.
  • By default, all OpenCL GPUs are used. To use a specific subset of OpenCL devices, use option -d with a comma-separated list of device IDs. The full list of IDs is printed every time the miner is started. Note that Nvidia GPUs should be listed twice, once as CUDA and once as OpenCL devices; the OpenCL interface is disabled by default for these GPUs, as CUDA usually gives better results.
  • The default intensity is 24. You can use option -I to adjust it. You can also specify a different intensity for each device by passing a comma-separated list.
  • You can use option -K to use a kernel other than the default one; like with intensity, you can specify a different kernel for each device by passing a comma-separated list. Run a benchmark with option --benchmark to see all available kernels for a given device.

To see all supported options:

Code:
marlin -h


Example performance:

RX 480 - 1185 core, 2000 mem: Marlin v1: 945MH/s vs SGMiner: 904MH/s GoMiner mod3: 845MH/s.
GTX 960 - 1303 core, 3004 mem: Marlin v1 m2p4: 657MH/s , CCMiner: 627MH/s
GTX 760 - 1162 core, 3004 mem: Marlin v1: 384MH/s, CCminer 263MH/s

  • Klaust's CCMiner also supports the SiaMining Stratum!
  • API Has been udpated.

Update 7/21/2016

3  Economy / Computer hardware / BFL Single Waterblocks -- Gauging interest on: June 20, 2012, 05:06:37 PM
I'm looking at making some of these. It seems there are a fair amount of people who mention they run warm or whatnot. This would solve that issue.  If my math is right, I could do these for about $50 each, however I'd need to sell 100 off the bat to make it worthwhile.

If enough people are interested, I'll go forward. If not, I'll scrap the idea.
4  Economy / Goods / [Sold - Empty - Gone] Diablo 3 Gold $4/50k on: May 21, 2012, 05:24:12 PM
I'm testing the market here to see if anyone wants cheap Diablo 3 gold. I have a bit over 1 million in reserves at the moment.

$4/50k.

Probably can work out discounts on larger stuff.

I'm not looking to go post this stuff on other forums. If it doesn't sell here, no big deal.

Almost looks like there needs to be a virtual currency sub for the gaming currency.


My supplier just purchased a 2million item after looking at the price drops.
5  Economy / Goods / [WTS] TCG/CCG's - LOTR, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Towers in Time, Eve-Online,etc(No Poke/M:TG) on: April 27, 2012, 11:08:11 AM
Alright... Due to a trade I recieved some cards that I have not a freaking clue what to do with. So I'm looking to the forums to see if anyone is interested, or knows someone interested. These cards certainly haven't been cherry picked by me, these tcg/ccg's are not my cup of tea. Shipping is a flat 1btc. I can get photo's if anyone is interested in one or some of them.

Towers in Time ~300 cards - 3btc
Harry Potter ~150, few foils - 3 BTC
Yu-Gi-Oh ~30, few foil rares - 3btc pending sale
Maple Story ~30 cards - .5btc pending sale
Zatchbell ~30 cards .5btc
World of Warcraft ~60 cards 1btc
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ~240 cards -1 BTC
Lord of the Rings ~1000 cards - 5BTC
.Net//Hack ~400 cards - 2BTC

Will sell the entire lot for 11 BTC shipped. It's a bargain! That'd make you more M:TG proxies than you will ever need Cheesy
6  Economy / Goods / Gameboy, Color, and Advance Games on: April 15, 2012, 12:03:37 PM
Not exactly the best selection, but I do have a stack of games I'll never play through. These have all been tested and seem to work fine. Can do shipping either way on this stuff. Option A) UPS for 1 btc in CONUS. B) USPS bubble mailer (need to find a price) with no tracking and no guarantee on shipping schedule.

Make me an offer, as I'd rather sell it to someone who actually wants the games. Somewhere around 1 btc each would be find by me, except the Zelda game would be 2 BTC.

Price update: 5 BTC will put all of them on your doorstep.

Gameboy:
  • Rampage
  • Revelations: The Demon Slayer
  • Star Wars
  • The Rugrats Movie
  • Tetris
  • Metroid II: The return of Samus

Gameboy Advanced:
  • Brother Bear
  • SpongeBob Squarepants
  • Zelda - Four Swords
  • Sonic the Hedgehog - Genesis
  • Mariokart Super Circuit
  • NFL Blitz 2002
  • Crash Bandicoot - The huge adventure

8  Economy / Goods / [WTB] Pokemon Games (perhaps cards) on: March 10, 2012, 04:10:26 AM
Alright folks, turn your old pokemon games into bitcoins!

I'm looking for any of the gameboy, gameboy color, gameboy advanced, ds/l/xl, n64, gamecube, wii games. I may be interested in TCG cards too if the price is pretty cheap.

I may be interested in the handheld consoles as well as other games if you want to just sell the whole thing as a lump sum.

PM me with what you have and we can go from there.
9  Economy / Goods / Supermicro Workstation board, cpu's, ram (Dropped Prices, again ) on: January 03, 2012, 12:35:42 AM
Alright, the quick and dirty:

1x Supermicro c2sbx at $80 shipped each WITH 8GB of DDR3 ECC ram.
http://www.supermicro.nl/products/motherboard/Core/X38/C2SBX.cfm

1x Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Yorkfield 2.66GHz LGA 775 95W $125 shipped
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115042

1x Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz LGA 775 65W $70 shipped
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115036

1x Zalman all copper heatsink, not sure exactly which mm fan $20 shipped or FREE if you buy a mobo/cpu combo. I know it has a few fins bent, your CPU or you won't ever notice a performance difference.
1x Generic tower based heatsink with copper heatpipes. Keeps the Cpu's cool enough. $15 shipped or free if you buy a mobo/cpu combo.

Picture in second post, to keep this one readable.

Whole bundle (Both boards, cpu's, ram and both heatsinks) for $300 shipped, plus I'll throw in 3x 120gb seagate sata hard drives, some sata cables.

These boards have worked great for my ESXi 5 boxes for quite awhile now. I'm only looking to upgrade so I can consolidate. This is a server/workstation class board. Not some foxconn/biostar $40 special. Set it and forget it. Look at the list of features those boards have. All boards need onboard USB female headers IMO!

Boards do not come with backplates,manual, cd's, no boxes with anything. I'll accept BTC, paypal (Gift only), partial LTC payment, dwolla, or cash.
The stuff gets shipped out via UPS with insurance in static bags and boxed properly.

I WILL HAND DELIVER! (For $20, payed ahead of time.) TO Chicago, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Madison. Fon Du Lac, Fox Valley area. Pretty much anywhere in south east Wisconsin.

10  Economy / Goods / Computer parts! (Random stuff!)Sapphire HD 5830,Mobo's, CPU's, Ram, "Junk" on: December 07, 2011, 12:38:33 AM
I have far too many computer parts. I also want to keep the BTC spirit going. I test each and every item before it leaves my house. Buyer pays shipping. Stuff is leaving from WI, you can figure shipping transit times from there. I won't ship across US borders unless you are buying a few hundred worth of something and know the responsibilities involved. I take BTC, LTC!!!(at .008usd/ltc), Dwolla, and will throw something on ebay so you can pay via paypal (with %5 extra to cover fee's).

I'm a SELLER! Throw me (reasonable) offers. If I wanted to start a Museum, I'd keep the stuff.

11  Economy / Goods / [WTB] Dead cards/boards/cpus/psu's, etc! Or old stuff, working or not. on: August 28, 2011, 01:20:56 AM
Putting this on hold unless:

You won't charge except for shipping and can fill a flatrate box with enough stuff to make it worthwhile.

I've had so many PM's and offers I'm more or less out of btc at the moment.

Quote
I'm looking to pay bottom dollar prices on pretty much anything that comes out of a computer.

Why? My girlfriend makes jewelry out of the parts!

So instead of dumping your stuff into the trash, I'll pay the shipping and a little more to compensate.

I'm literally looking for darn near everything:
8088/386/486 and up boards
Any hard drives, regardless of size.
Any add on card - Dialup modems, sound cards, gpu's, networking cards, etc
Power supplies, heat sinks, etc
Old memory sticks! bios's, chips/resistors/capacitors, and any cables!

About the only thing I won't buy individually is floppy/dvd drives as there is nothing fun in them to make into something else. Pretty much it seems older is better, as the tech was larger and looked cooler.

Send me PM's with what you have. Pictures are going to be a must with your name and my name, xurious. I don't need exact pictures, even if it's just all in a pile and I can get a rough idea. It'd be great if you know "about" how much it weighed to figure shipping costs.
12  Economy / Goods / [WTB]4x HD 5770's on: August 27, 2011, 03:25:20 AM
I'm looking to buy 4 of them. Shoot me PM's with what you have. I can't even find these darn things in my state for sale on craigslist.

Note: I can buy new for $100 each. I'm looking for fair deals here. I will pay more if you have the receipt (pdf works) to go with it.
13  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Evga 780i SLI with cpu/ram [Price Reduced!] 9btc w/ Free Shipping! on: August 27, 2011, 02:03:13 AM
I'm selling a evga 780i sli board. Comes with 1x 256mb and 1x 512mb hynix ram.  Also comes with a stock intel heatsink and a pentium 4 3.0ghz.

Link to CPU: http://ark.intel.com/products/27478
Link to board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188024

I had 3x 5870's running on this without a hitch, with 16x risers. I'm the original owner and it's been in an antec 900 case since day one, proper ventilated. Was running a q6600 overclocked to 3.4ghz, but that's minimal FSB overclock. It will come with the backplate. This is a solid board, hate to see it go.

From the rough prices I've seen $100 is a fair price for the board, plus you'll get the ram and cpu. Will do $80 via paypal or 9btc! Free Shipping!



14  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Gigabyte 5870 - $215 shipped UPS [Sold at $200] on: August 25, 2011, 03:01:15 AM
I have a Gigabyte 5870 1GB edition with the dual fan setup. I have the original box to go with it. Yes I know, I don't have a picture yet. It's in my open air conditioned mining rig. It's only seen 70c with fan at 85%. Overclocked to 900/300.

Now, I'm looking to get $215 shipped UPS. I'd prefer paypal as I can't pay eBay in BTC yet! You'll get a tracking number and with most places UPS is only 3 days. Yes I'm charging more through btc, as it'll cover the fee's and time to get it into cash(Blame Newegg for not taking BTC Tongue)

I WILL ONLY SHIP TO VERIFIED USA Paypal residents. If it has to leave the country, you won't be getting it. I ship directly to the address associated with the paypal account. I don't have a goofy heatware profile, but can see my ebay feedback here: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=xuriouspc&ftab=AllFeedback .

It's the card in the middle, in action:

15  Other / Beginners & Help / Windows 7 vs XP: Mining Performance wise? on: July 29, 2011, 11:49:33 PM
I was trying to find info on this, but my search attempts failed.

Is there any performance mining wise vs the two? Or any big factors I should know about? I've been using 7 to date, but I'd like to start installing windows xp to usb disks and don't want to have to purchase 16gb usb drives just becuase of the needed space.
16  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Save Money! Underclock and disable stuff! on: July 04, 2011, 03:33:04 PM
I haven't read across anyone doing this, nor did I do a specific search. I had this posted in the newbie forums until I could post here.

If you are using a dedicated rig or want to restart before you do gaming, you should consider underclocking your rigs.
I have 3 dedicated miners. As example one is using an evga 780i sli, core 2 quad 6600, and 3x 6850's (got a killer deal on them, but they kinda suck).
With that board I could disable the last 3 cores. I then underclocked it to 1.6ghz (I might be able to go lower, but that was easy) and undervolted it. My hashing did not change. It's a little laggier to VNC into it but I'll put up with that.

Next I'm debating about lowering the bus speeds and ram. I'm only running a single one gig module of ram as it is.

While I might only be saving a buck or two a month, the guys who are running some serious hardware and 10 machines will get much more benefit out of this.

Update:
Here's a link to determine your old vs new wattage!

I went from 95w to 41w with 2400/1.25v to 1600/1v!
