How much power is draining at the wall to make 39 Mhs ?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Lowering power consumption as possible on: April 09, 2021, 04:15:15 PM
Holy Cow.

If I trust whattomine: your power consumption id 370watt+ Motherboard ( to mine ethereum, because RVN ts higher)
Can we call it 500 w ?
24hour*,5 its 12 KWh/ day its 4380 Kwh / year
you have 1.2 Kw Nominal
your system at best .. will produce 1600 Kwh / year facing south in free place can be better only if you are in Denver or Colombia or at very high altitude but not that much
Go here and check by yourself., just pinpoint your location  the map where you are and write 1.2 in the KW peak box and hit calculate.

At the end you need to triple your actual solar PV system to have those  running 24/7/365.

In theory!

in reality When you hit calculate its show a table and a graph ( kind of gaussian distribution curve).

That  will show you that , in the summer you will produce more than enough for running the system, but not for charging the battery fully and running the system.
Then if you multiply your 1.2 Kw by 3, the yearly production will be enough BUT (the winter + part of autumn and spring) production will NOT be enough!

As a reference  my system:

 When finished  I will  have 9.9 Kw  380 V installed system facing south with 11.8 ( x3) KWH  3phase BYD  battery. This give me an a base of 1.5 Kwh/24/365 that I count for the two rigs.
On top there is an electrichal  water heating pump for bath & Kitchen use
Winter heating is done by wood as I am living in a forest with difficult access.
The two rigs (1 AMD 1 NVDA) are located one in the basement (AMD, a little noisy, 6 x RX 470 ) one in the first floor Nvda (6 x 3060TI/3070 Zotac) is very quiet
There is an AVS automatic ventilation system that is spreading the heat where is needed between the floors.
The excess energy produced during the summer  is "gifted" to the government in exchange for the 65 % tax deduction....
When there is (too much) snow, I can purchase electricity from the grid at 0.27 (33$cents)  but that make mining  not convenient.

in short ? I will sell a 1/2 of GPU and purchase some solar panels... price is around 30 cents / watt those days so probably you can purchase 1 Kwp with one 1660Ti

Aaargh, am I  the only one that have the Gpu horizzontaly placed ?

Why you guys prefer to have them vertically hanged ?
in a Tower Pc normally the gpus lie parallel to the ground.
So, the GPU fan is spinning effortlessy. No ?
Fan is flowing air to the high ground , thats where normally where the hot air goes.

I was thinking that only the commercial frame were made like that because it will be cheaper to ship and that normal DIY frame were like mine.

To be clear: I am not using your software to mine actually.
I will stop a rig and because of that I can make a test for a short while.

Testers earn up to 30% more money while testing because of the optimized speed ?

Well, Testers are like elephant, and old hard drives, have memory.

Nobody will give me back the Rig time neither money not earned when  you released te first amd version in 8 (if I recall correctly) versions in 6 days and they were not working / bad working after a while.

 So, please don't say so : Testers earn up to 30% more money while testing because of the optimized speed.

Oh, and thank you at the developer of a very good  CPU miner

Sunday I will test  it with RTX 3070 and let you know
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Lowering power consumption as possible on: April 07, 2021, 09:19:55 AM
you have what you have.

I am running 24/7/365 day on solar/battery as well two rigs.

Regarding the I5, its just enough that  you go to advanced energy saving in windows, processor, and set the" Max level" down from 100 to 95. Windows automatically adjust the bios setting and your TDP will go down from 95 to 45w with no visible degradation. It like you purchased the Intel Low Power Core i5 4670T instead of the regular I5 4670 95W

On the memory: If windows need memory, it will create virtual memory on the SSD. By doing so, its consuming MORE power than the one needed for the memory itself.  So, removing 4 gb doesn't seem a good choice.

Last, I don't understand all the discussion about  GOLD,Platinum PSU.

My Psu isn't Platinum 90 %, its 100 %

Because are you sure you need a PSU ?
I have a small PSU for the motherboard but  I have a 12 V direct exit from my battery pack that I use to power the Gpus and the raisers.

It doesn't make sense to convert from DC To AC and then from AC to DC again.

Besided all the chit chat going on and philosofy and approach to mining that can be somewhat interesting my question is easy :

Who is renting x17 rigs and to mine which coin to make it more proftable than eth by 40 % ?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: GMiner v2.49 Ethash/KAWPOW/Equihash/CuckooCycle on: April 03, 2021, 09:19:43 PM
Its just me or using
--cache_dag on for eth +zil
and SAFE Dag 2 for safe dag generation at extreme overclock
produce a 5-/6 % Hashrate decrease on RT 30xxs family ?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge OC as a mining card ?... on: April 02, 2021, 02:05:49 PM
I don't know Linux and I am not good at it , but the number above are normal number for that card  with t-rex & windows.

540 Kh/watt is my target when tuning the card with afterburner
Some card can do better but all of this series can do it at least in my 10 pcs experience.
But I would say Bravo! because I have tried Hive and retreat back to Win7 to do it.Probably because I'm not good enough but he is.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 12 gpu windows 10 issue Please help on: April 01, 2021, 07:17:23 AM
I slept on it and I have a different solution: Sell your rx590 and purchase and old rx470( or two!).
You save some money and can go back to blockchain driver
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 12 gpu windows 10 issue Please help on: March 31, 2021, 09:01:57 PM
Your time is valuable as well as 2 $/ month but I like the approach.

I don't suggest moving to any linux mining distribution.

I am suggesting that you have a fine tuned rig, just let it run and find another motherboard etc for the rx590.

If this is not viable and you have time:
change the driver and  use overdriventool to setup overclock and undervolt easily
Use TRM instead of phoenix, not so easy to setup but much stable with newer driver

Keep an eye also on the amount of virtual memory, PSU limit  and give a look at the cpu utilitation.
Because may be its not the new driver the problem

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Is there a crypto I can mine on my laptop on: March 29, 2021, 07:46:02 PM
 GPU Nvidia GeForce GT 650M is what probably you have.

Cryptonight &likes are the only thing that I will mine with it.

Turtlecoin, Haven, Zano are probably the best choices at the moment.

I don't think you will become rich with it but you will be able to pay the energy bill.

Probably Nicehash and Minerstat are the easiest choices, I will probably go with TeamRedMiner if it works, and I will setup my personal wallet for what I am going to mine and Holding and just selling enough to pay the energy bill.

but its up to you

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: New to mining and some guidance needed on: March 26, 2021, 05:42:25 PM
you can go to and exchange epic cash in pair with BTC
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: PCIE Multiplier on: March 24, 2021, 03:35:44 PM
That's because windows found the driver and install it without askying you.
Neverless the driver has been  installed and you can see it in the same place where you go and see if the VIdeo card driver are installed its under : other devices(that's where I have it)  or its under system devices, where the other PCI devices are(you , that's working)
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: PCIE Multiplier on: March 24, 2021, 02:51:31 PM
I received them yesterday, but windows isn't recognizing them.
It does appear the "triangle" in the device panel.
I am trying to find the driver over the net with no luck.

Can someone that is successfully using the multiplier tell me the name of the driver he is sing ? 
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] NSF Miner - ethereum miner without fee [AMD+Nvidia/Windows+Linux] on: March 21, 2021, 09:32:15 PM
this version at least start and it doesn't seem to be a trojan

The miner is unable to list devices with some polaris 8gb and some 4gb in the slots and no Nvidia in the rig

What is needed in future update:

a readme file with all the command available
an example in which some device is used and some other are not

The two meaning of the same letter with lower case and UPPERCASE doesn't make sense -h -H -l -L etc..

The sintax of the miner is in conflit with the sintax of this pool:  where a lot of people is double mining Eth

The miner with 4 rtx 3070 is offering almost the same hashrate as Trex, with more unvalid shares with the same oc BUT its powerconsumption is 2 % lower that is a very good point

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] NSF Miner - ethereum miner without fee [AMD+Nvidia/Windows+Linux] on: March 21, 2021, 06:56:43 PM
Now, I am annoyed, to say the least.

Please write here what is supposed to happen if I launch a bat file with
nsfminer --help

because, it seem that, again,  that your github link is compromised

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: GMiner v2.47 Ethash/KAWPOW/Equihash/CuckooCycle on: March 19, 2021, 05:41:38 AM
I am a little confused on mining Grin with RTX 3070 8 gb in windows:
Miner is using 6gb solver
Miner does encounter illegal memory access, even if I have set +0 core and +0 memory in Afterburner PL/60 % or 50%.
What am I  doing wrong ?

Also In order to use the 8gb solver do I have to run Linux ?

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] NSF Miner - ethereum miner without fee [AMD+Nvidia/Windows+Linux] on: March 14, 2021, 06:59:19 PM
mmmh, that's why probably I wasn't able to install it
In fact 1.34 worked, 1.37 upward weren't installing correctly
I will delete everything then
