1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What is the other wallet file that usually ends in somethingcoin"d" on: April 05, 2014, 05:27:50 AM
I've always wondered what this application is for? it is bundled with the wallets of most coins but i've never found an explanation on what it does.

For example, zetacoin-qt.exe and zetacoind.exe

Nothing happens when I start it up except for cmd window that opens and closes too fast for me to read what it does.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / >>>>> MINTPAL.COM shady maintenance practices MUST READ (needs solution) <<<<<<< on: March 04, 2014, 10:29:55 PM
There's gotta be a better way to managing downtime, the owner couldn't have picked a worse timing.. 1 hour maintenance in the middle of high volume trading? (i was just about to sell mazacoin at the peak) What happens after the 1 hour and people miss their chance to sell which is the most likely scenario?

Now that I think about it, the timing of this maintenance is very suspicious. How come no one is pissed off about this?

I don't know if the owner is familiar with stock markets, but any kind of downtime = very angry customers

how are you going to have a maintenance during high volume trading, are you fucking kidding me? At this moment I could lose half my money, makes me wonder why the people with 10 times my wealth don't chime in.

original post was referring to mintpal.com, but i've since considered it's not fair to single them out when all exchanges have similar issues. I'm going to edit this post so we can brainstorm some solutions.

one solution I came up with is for major exchanges to sync their downtime.

As a community we must work together to prevent another mt.gox, because if that happens I guarantee you, when more people complain about losing their coins the government will bring the hammer down and cryptocurrency will become regulated.

Let us not forget that this is real money here, all altcoins are tied to the value of BTC, which is tied to the value of USD, which in turn can have a considerable effect on the US economy.

They may not be able to regulate the creation of coins, but they can definitely regulate online exchanges. We need to show the government that we can regulate ourselves.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Can LEPA 1200w run more than 4 cards? on: January 08, 2014, 11:52:56 PM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817494011

it has 4 rails, I think i saw some people running 6 cards on these, or am i mistaken? If 6 is possible, do you connect the other 2 via molex?
I will be powering 6x r9 470.  Each card only uses about 150w, problem is, each card requires 2x 6pin.. Having trouble finding a <1300 watt psu that has enough cables / rails to run 5-6 cards.  (I don't want to go through trouble of rigging 2 PSU)

PS whoever snatched up the 1600w while i was debating, i hate you!
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 6 cards, and not enough cables/slots? on: January 07, 2014, 03:51:12 AM
i have 6 of these Gigabyte R9 270.  They require 2x 6P PCI-E for power
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125491

I was hoping to run them off two 650w that I currently have... until I realized that I don't have enough cables. Furthermore I don't think these PSU were meant to run more than 1 or 2 cards because there aren't enough slots on the back..  GG.

So I guess I will have to order this 1200w LEPA PSU and hope that it has the right cables:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817494011

I can't tell from the picture, but does it have enough cables to power at least 5 of my Gigabyte R9 270s? It says there are 8x 6+2P, It looks like there are only 3 slots to power 3 GPUs, how do I connect the rest?

Do you guys think I should return the Gigabyte's and get these ASUS R9 270 instead? (they only require 1x 6P for power). Or is there no need with this 1200w PSU?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121823

If possible I would like to avoid the trouble of returning my GPUs and waiting another week.

I guess this is my dilemma, i cant find any single PSU that will support 5-6 cards, this seems like it would be a common issue?

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Building 6 card rig for alt coin, where to get powered risers? on: December 30, 2013, 12:52:45 AM
So, i've been keeping tabs on bitcoins for 2 years now, missed that train and finally decided that I want to get into altcoin mining.

I was following this guide http://www.coinminingrigs.com/how-to-build-a-6-gpu-mining-rig/#comment-36695
but am looking for second opinions.

Since the 280x and 290x are way overpriced now. I went ahead and already ordered, and am awaiting delivery of six, gigabyte R9 270 ($180). I figured I might as well bite the bullet cus they are selling out as we speak, i could always return it if I test one and it doesn't work out.

So I have just three questions:

1) Is this really the best card available now initial price to hashrate wise? or would you have gotten the slightly more energy efficient 280x at $420?

two, R9 270 producing 900 kh/s drawing 400w vs a single R9 280 producing 750 kh/s drawing 300w. Maybe I should have gotten the 280x.  Havent even received the units and i'm already feeling buyer's remorse haha.
The reason I didn't automatically go with the 280x is because all the 1600w PSU's are out of stock.
I guess #1 isn't really a question and I'm just looking for someone to reaffirm my purchase. lol.

2) Can someone recommend a place to get powered risers that wont blow up in my face? Was thinking about ordering from here:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/PCI-E-16X-to-1X-Adapter-Riser-Card-Flex-Extension-Cable-w-Molex-Power-Connector-/181285248039?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item2a35715c27

3) Is this 1300w PSU a good choice? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=1012719&Q=&is=REG&A=details
or should I wait for the 1600w LEPA to be available again, in case I want to upgrade the cards in the future (anyone know when?).
 I'm not in a hurry since I have other computers I could temporarily set these cards in.
