1. This is the bitcoin section, no GPU discussion as it does not relate to bitcoin.

2. The 1050 is a piece of junk for mining, you shouldnt even be entertaining the thought of buying one. At minimum you want a 1060.
343  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Surge protection - What do you use? PDU? on: August 20, 2018, 05:27:10 PM
The power supply is your surge protector. Go take a look at the input voltages...most are 100v-240v...they all output steady 12v power. The worst that will happen is you will pop a PSU or trip a breaker. You are wasting your money on anything else.
344  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Are people really making money from mining using laptop? on: August 20, 2018, 05:25:01 PM
Mining on a laptop is just plain stupid.

If you want to mine, you need to buy proper equipment.

It takes money to make money.
345  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: New NVIDIA 20 series cards available for pre-order, shipping 9/20/18 on: August 20, 2018, 05:21:58 PM
I cant imagine these go flying off the shelves at those prices. No games can take advantage of the new tech yet, founder edition cards are always hot loud pieces of junk, and the mining payback period on these things is like 2 years at best.
346  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Nvidia is expecting íno contributionsí from blockchain sales for the year on: August 20, 2018, 05:18:04 PM
I am hoping that the Ethereum developers hard fork and kill the ASIC miners.  That will make ETH profitable again.

Honestly I think it would be great if BTC would hardfork and kill their ASICs too.

The ignorance in this comment is astounding. First off, the only ASIC on the market for ETH is a piece of junk, it is not contributing to the lack of profits in any meaningful way.

The second comment cant just be ignorance, it has to be pure stupidity. Forking BTC away from ASICs?

You guys listen to all the anti asic propaganda and then say some of the dumbest shit imaginable. Its nearly unbelievable how much bad info people will parrot without ever doing research on their own.
347  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Avalon 851 on its way. on: August 15, 2018, 08:27:21 PM
.13 is horrible efficiency, why would anyone buy these?

The reliability doesnt make up for all that extra power being burnt versus the competition. I sure hope the 9 series lives up to its advertised specs, it would be nice to see Avalon not behind the pack on efficiency which has been the case the entire time I have been in this industry.
348  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS] 585 x Just refurbished Sapphire Radeon NITRO+ Rx 470 4GB GDDR5 on: August 15, 2018, 04:56:46 PM
I wonder what conditions you ran your hardware, god damn it.  My RMA rate is less than 1% over 3 years.  Anyways why ask USD, you guys are CAD.  Dont trust the RMA story though.  Anways I'll buy whatever you have, but at 3-4 months ROI, not a day more.

you must have a small sample size. I have managed over 6000 RX 470s and I can say for sure the failure rate is at least 5%

Your preview requires a login, you might want to fix that
350  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Upcoming Avalon Scrypt LTC miner allready worthless... on: August 15, 2018, 04:36:32 PM
Also the OP is claiming under $1 a day when thats just not true. Even at the depressed prices it makes around $5.85/day before power costs.

Sure if you are trying to run a miner on expensive power it wont make money, but thats pretty much all miners right now.
351  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Upcoming Avalon Scrypt LTC miner allready worthless... on: August 15, 2018, 03:39:20 PM
However the -new- upcoming Avalon 1,9GH Scrypt miner @1700 watt does only make 1 dollar a day right now.

They key thing you said is "right now". Crypto is hitting historic lows this week, so you are looking at the absolute worst possible mining revenue right now. In a week it could be making 3 times as much, you just never no. Making a decision or forming an opinion based on a single snapshot of profitability is a mistake.
352  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: On-board auto reboot with Antminer S9 (daily reboots) on: August 15, 2018, 03:28:23 PM
Another option is to run a raspberry Pi and use scripting to do it. Ansible works great for something like this, you can just pass raw SSH commands directly to each unit to reboot it

How do I enable ASICBOOST on these Huh

You cant. ASICboost is a hardware level thing, no software is going to make it happen
354  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Ethereum has reached the historically lowest point of profitability per megahash on: August 13, 2018, 11:43:28 PM
It's probably only going to get worse when all these asics come on line that haven't shipped yet so everyone who supported bitmain and made them a few more mill hope you like your asic

Why do you people parrot this stupid shit without understanding what you are saying? ASICs for all major algos have been shipping for months. Get off the FUD train and do a little independent thinking for once.
355  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Ethereum has reached the historically lowest point of profitability per megahash on: August 13, 2018, 08:43:35 PM
Welcome to crypto mining.
356  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Bitmain APW7 PSU - Harmonics on: August 13, 2018, 03:09:15 PM
I cant speak for the APW7 but I run thousands of APW6's with no issues. I would assume the APW7 is more of the same.
357  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Monitor is blank with a black screen, not loading Windows10 on: August 10, 2018, 04:44:39 PM
what makes you think you can install windows 10 on the laptop and just move it to another computer.

Install windows on the mining rig.

Or, if you were smart, you would install linux because windows is shit for mining.
358  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmain Launches the New Antminer B3 Miner on: August 10, 2018, 04:38:44 PM
Anyone buying a machine meant to only mine a single coin with no history of profitability cannot blame bitmain for their own stupid decision.

Also, the GPU code was written after the miner was released, so you are trying to blame bitmain for not predicting the future.

Quit whining and blaming everyone else for your bad purchase. Nobody forced you to buy it.
359  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. on: August 10, 2018, 04:12:59 PM
You can fix this issue by running linux, which you should be doing anyway if you are mining.
360  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Need Some Help With my ETH Claymore Rig Crashing on: August 08, 2018, 09:04:53 PM

I found the problem. You are running the wrong OS for mining.
