1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Moving the BBT Farm to Full Immersion on: April 18, 2021, 06:30:12 PM
Will be documenting the entire journey. Here is the first video, basic rig design for the flow plates to be engineered for our immersion tanks.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Can mining survive after Ethereum? Critical Analysis Model of Ravencoin on: February 19, 2021, 08:56:06 PM
As a further development of the original Mining Analysis sheet, I have pivoted to a key question. Can another network support the existing Ethereum GPU Mining Hashrate if transferred over. In this first model attempt I walk through the algebra and calculus involved at trying to identify with known/knowns mixed with some assumptions (on asic amount on ethereum) to get to a size of scope / price RVN would need to move to on supporting Ethereum's network projection.

Looking foward to working additional features in the model. Please let me know what else you would like to see
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / EIP-1559 - Let's Talk on: January 15, 2021, 06:48:14 PM
Good morning folks,

After having a bit of a back and forth with some of the Ethereum proponents on EIP-1559, I felt I should do some digging on price discovery vs supply/demand argument being put for on how Ethereum's Security argument is being portrayed as a 'we are paying to much for security, lets drive price by burning fees' argument is playing out with this approved EIP. I felt it would be best said vs. the linear approach at writing the points.

What are some of your stories for a possible future testimonial I will use in further discussions with Ethereum Developers. Help me tell them part of your mining story.

  • How did you Discover Ethereum
  • Do you mine? What was your first attempt, single GPU or a rig?
  • What were your set expectations when you made that decision, based on what?
  • Has the experience in ethereum mining change your life in anyway?
  • What is your future planning with mining if ETH decides to drop fees and mining becomes net negative as network adjust?

You can add more to your story and I will try to include in one of my next upcoming videos. Thanks again for the correspondence my dudes. Cheers

I was able to replicate it. I can consistently do it if I change sequence settings + enable/disable renderer in Adobe Premiere. I let it run to a pool and have confirmed, its a false positive. They are running at 65mh, not 87mh. Here is the video showing all of that in 3 minutes.

Here is the 12v Rail and Riser power details on ETH quick test and no, I can not consistently get the two instances to be recreated. The next time I do I will try and go #live and folks/miner developers can try to capture everything I can snip to see how we can reproduce more regularly.

I am not sure why as a consequence the smart access memory would create a second logical GPU. Very odd. Neat in your case but seems like a strange consequence.

It's definitely a bug. I disabled 4G Decoding, BAR in the BIOS, rebooted, DDU'd the drivers, reinstalled drivers, tested without Smart Access Memory, then tested again with it back on and now back to 1 GPU still.

Looking to see if something else I was doing caused it to pop two instances of the miner. The limited time I was running, it was in fact getting 80mh at the pool and had both compute 0 and compute 1 under load in the GPU monitor; now I just get compute 0 with the single thread.

Bottom line, bug or not, there is headroom here for dev to enable that second thread officially.

I did previous video with it turned off, I enabled it today and tested and got those results.

Here is a latest video on it. YouTube

Note: My next steps today are the following

1) Run continuous for 2 hours against a pool and validate shares/hashrate

2) Test same config using 1x to 16x riser to see if SAM works same on riser

3) Test Power Usage at these rates, see about powerplay tweaking on what we can get out of it.

Here is my active testing thread on the 6800 non-xt

Bottom line initial testing 81MH/s on ETH @ 170w

Now time to tweak powerplay tables and see how low we can get the power down to.

I benchmark briefly near the end of the video, longer one tonight on livestream, after the build tonight.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 14x 5700xt build on HiveOS - How we did it on: October 22, 2020, 01:01:59 AM
Great video do you have any stability issues?  Make me want to try this with my 5700s, not sure if I could keep it running never had luck with rigs over 8 cards.  

Yes, as said in the video, the machine runs well for 24 hours and has at least 1 reboot per day; we have went as long as 27 hours then it will fault and reboot. Still trying to figure out the significance of 24 hour reboots.

Here is the current status, showing 1 full day up; cards that showing 100% seem to be my problem ones; Ultimately may have to replace thermal pads on those GPUs

I never understood why to collect so many video cards on one farm and why install video cards so close to each other. This is all done with one goal only - to show everyone that you have a big dick farm . If we talk about practical application, then 98 out of 100 miners will not do this.

There are a lot of things to consider.

1) Maximizing single machine to take advantage of the ASUS, Biostar or ASROCK boards which all support 11-14 GPUs (dependent which board), where you have a single CPU/Memory cost per rig.

2) While not always practical, our farm mostly has 7-8GPU rigs on the B250 vs running them up to 14, however we had not visited this since the RX 470's series, so why not try it.

3) I have been trying to provide content to this community since 2013, it's not about showing off, its about enabling more people on how to do it and what our experiences were, including in this video. Showing off would be just taking some B roll of if, saying hey look at this with no other time spent showing you exactly how we hooked it up.

Maybe this video will show it can be done if someone runs into 14gpus and wanted to put it all on one rig.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 14x 5700xt build on HiveOS - How we did it on: October 20, 2020, 11:24:01 PM
Quick overview covered in less than 5min video. I have been trying to keep these as lean as possible for viewership. Any idea's how I can make them more streamline?
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 21 GPU build - /w how we did it on: October 01, 2020, 04:17:47 PM
Over the past week BBT Todd and I have played around with a 19 and 21 card build using the XFX 5700XT Tri-Fan DD / THICC GPU paired up with the 8x Manli P106-090. In this test we explore what has changed since that World Record build back in 2017 with the RX 470 4GB Sapphire Mining Editions paired with the same Manli P106s. Bottom line, An increase of nearly 300MH and reduction of nearly 1200w are the results. Boasting now 850MH at 2650w sustained vs the previous build bouncing between 3300-3700w for a mere 553MH.

The 19 card variation with BIOS and optimized settings (in video) gets the rig to 763mh @ 2245w from the wall (30A PDU); would like to hear some of your guys experience with the ASUS B250 Mining Expert and 19 card builds. Post your pictures! Would love to see how you arranged the GPUs.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 19GPU 5700XT (11) P106 (8) Mining Rig build in 2min (stock bioses) on: September 24, 2020, 11:24:03 PM
Working later tonight on this - optimization/bios modding and further configuration to drive it as close to 2kw as possible. Strongly believe I can hit over 750+ MH with this build.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / This *could change after 3000 series, but 5600 XT is king for a few on: September 01, 2020, 08:43:11 AM
Did a 1.5h livestream last night going through a range of settings/configs with the 5600 XT 6GB using only the AMD Driver Tool. Results in video; bottom line 1300 core *800mv /w 1860M and -50% power limit = 75w of usage at nearly 39mh full card. 85w if you want 43.3mh. With a 30-50w System Power you could get 8 of those for 310mh @ 650w!
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What to do with those 4GB GPUs once ETH/ETC exceed DAG size on: August 19, 2020, 04:35:46 PM I take a few minutes to talk options. I know these are not everything and would be interested in a follow on shouting out your guys suggestions on what you plan doing. What is your forecast on next steps post a 4GB Eth/Etc?
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: BBT Montage of Cryptocurrency Mining on: April 13, 2020, 03:39:42 PM
I know my dude, I have a lot of banked content, just need to get the time to produce the videos. One would think in a Pandemic I would have all the time in the world, however I seem to be more busy than ever now.

The montages are fun though, so much fun experiences throughout this journey.

It's hard sometimes to articulate why I do what I do for BBT, but exploring many video's in the archives I help remember why I find this space so fascinating and reinforce why individual participation in mining is so important to the engagement of these crypto POW networks. The ability to participate is paramount and to help bring you through that journey is one of my passions. Here's to the past and preparing for the future!
