How to know your bitcoin ID?
bitcoin id = bitcoin adress, I think so
My mind reading computer is being repaired.
Better write where did you find the bitcoin ID?
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mining on a Gigabyte UD5? on: Today at 03:03:47 PM
Hi again, I have more questions and issues.

I have since got 2 more 3070s so now at 3x 3070 and 1x 1070. Using 2x 750w PSU
For last few days I have been running 1070 then 3070 then 3070, the 1070 does the output to monitor.
Thats been working fine can always see all cards.

So the last one came today, plugged it in and boot up can only see the 1070 no other cards.
Spent hours trying almost all combos even in the smaller ports (wont even post if I try and use either of them) none of them worked.
Ive ended up getting 3x 3070s running (TPD 540-550w when mining)but can not get a forth gpu to show up if any more then 1 show up when 4 plugged in its 2 gpus and the other 2 I can feel getting hot.
Everything has power but they just dont show up, I am using driver version 469.89 and MSI afterburner.
One PSU doing mobo, 2 risers, ssd, 1070 and a 3070 (fan doesnt even turn on) the other PSU just doing 2x 3070s +2 risers (TDP is only going to 280w on idle)
Is there a bois setting I need to change ?

I have also spent hours trying to figure out how to overclock and stuff in command line for Phoenix but cant seem to get most commands to work.
I tried -cclock 1:192,2-3:-456 -mclock 1:387,2-3:1407 -powlim 1:60,2-3:50 also tried some fan stuff but ya couldn't seem to get anything to work except for some temp or fan stuff.
Im guessing there is something Im not understanding. Is this a permission issue? If i run as admin it doesn't work

I see people saying use HiveOs. I looked at site but Im unsure. Can I have 1 rig for free? Should I try this considering I cant figure out -mcdag 1 or how to auto restart stuff?

Edit: Oh I should add I am using MSI afterburner to see cards since I need that to do the OC and undervolt. Ended up getting the 2x RM750 since on sale for $150 each.
One farm at Hive os is free. There are no restrictions. There are a lot of video articles on the Internet on how to set up nvidia video cards.
Also in Hive os there is a very clear interface for configuring coolers on video cards. You do not need to write additional settings, because everything is easily configured through the operating system interface.
I chose Hive os for a lot of information on the internet.

I also do not understand the point of installing such powerful and hot video cards close to each other. These are expensive video cards and my task is to make them work as long as possible, and not overheat in a closed case.
I do not want to argue which is better for the long-term operation of these video cards, but I believe that the farther these video cards are from each other, the longer they will mine and will not break.
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Having issue with mining on binance on: Today at 02:41:41 PM
Hello i recently started mining ETH on Binance using my 1060 6gb.The problem is miner says around 20 mh/s and later it says effective 11 mh/s, how to fix this?
https://prnt.sc/11vjc8w
First, overclock your graphics card
Power limit - max
Core +50
Memory +600   (from 500 to 1000)
You will get a hashrate of 23 Megahesh
The effective hashrate will always be less than the reported hashrate at the start of mining. Wait 4-6 hours and your statistics will change.
Effective hashrate is calculated by the pool based on the shares found, so it is minimal at the beginning of mining
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: CHIA XCH mining: Why mining without value? on: Today at 02:32:14 PM
Yes I think the same. But I want try for fun.
I was thinking to use 1 nvme 2tb + 1 12TB with my work PC. I would know how much it consume and how many XCH can I mine in 1 month, then I'll decide.
Some questions if you can answer:

- My Power depend how many plot can I keep in HDD storage right?
- Is correct with 1SSD 2TB + 12TB HDD make about 90 Plot? 5-6 plot (300GB x 6 on 2TB SSD) that produce 100Plot in 12TB HDD?
- Once I'll produce 100 plot what happen? I image they have to stay there on HDD and the network use them for generate XCH? Is it correct?
- I read about swap of disks? What does it mean?

Thanks
1 nvme 2tb will allow you to create 6 Plots at the same time. This requires a multi-core processor and at least 32GB of RAM. It will take you 10-12 hours to form 6 Plots. If you make 12 Plots in 1 day, it will take you 9-10 days to partition the entire hard disk.
It looks more like mockery than mining
I spent hours yesterday trying to figure out what chia mining have to offer but to me I don't think it's worth it, this isn't mining but a rip off, I'd rather buy GPUS to mine or oh yes that new Wifi miner that Voskcoin is talking about is way better, china people are crazy to invest in such mining equipments
The nvme SSD is used only for forming Plots. Plots can be placed on regular hard drives.
If you have free hard drives, you can buy an nvme SSD to quickly generate Plots and try to mine chia coin.
And to buy new equipment for mining a coin, the price of which is unknown, is dubious mining.

For mining rigs, it is better to divide a separate switch or switches and make separate wiring from the electrical switchboard.
It's funny when the food in the refrigerator goes bad, and in old wooden houses, overloading electrical wires can end in a fire.
 It's not funny anymore.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Getting older GPUs to mine on: April 22, 2021, 12:38:38 PM
Why do you want to use such GPUs? They are mostly useless. Any GPU costs same as much as profit it brings. Try to search AMD RX470-580 with 8GB memory at least. Or may be 1060 with 6 GB.
In another way you can buy 3GB or 4GB GPUs, but you can`t mine the most profitable coins with them.

funny thing.  I picked up a pair of AMD Firepro S9000 (6GB ECC RAM) passively cooled gpu's for $175 off of ebay.  Popped one of them in to a test rig, fired up lolminer and off and running @ 23 MH/s.  They do run hot currently, 74c.  So I am redoing the thermal pads and paste on the second card.  This card is the pro version of the HD 7950.  But it was cheap, and I was interested to see if it would actually work.  If anyone knows if I can control voltage and clock speed via parameter setting with lolminer, please post a link to the documentation.

Thanks,

JimS2321
Are you mining Ethereum or Ethereum Classic?
HD 79XX series hashrate dropped when increasing
Dag file, and so they were sold. Although these cards had 3GB of memory, except for the HD 7990.
These cards were very hot, if I'm not confusing anything, then they were heated up to 90 C. After 100 C, my farm turned off.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 5th gpu throwing blInitialLibrary failed error on: April 22, 2021, 12:30:46 PM
Besides no one should use windows for big rigs over 5 cards and up should always be linux.
Why?
I have farms with video cards that run on Windows. I have not yet decided why this is happening: I am too lazy to install Hive Os or I save $ 3 per month Smiley
The Windows operating system is very inconvenient for managing a large number of mining farms. But if a newbie has 1 or 2 farms and does not want to work on Linux OS for mining, it is possible to start with Windows.
But every experienced miner should be able to use Linux OS for mining.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 5th gpu throwing blInitialLibrary failed error on: April 22, 2021, 11:57:12 AM
This is a Windows operating system error.
If this article didn't help you
https://appuals.com/how-to-fix-blinitializelibrary-failed-0xc00000bb-error-on-windows/
Then I advise you to use Hive Os for mining. This is a 100% solution to your problem.
I even advise you to install Hive Os to test your graphics cards and accessories. If everything works fine in Hive Os, then look for the problem in Windows.

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mining with Antminer s19 or graphic card? on: April 21, 2021, 12:01:16 PM
Hi,
I'm looking at graphic cards an mining rigs like Antminer s19 and cant understand the hash rate. How can a graphic card that are on MH/s compete with a rig that is on TH/s?

Thanks!  
Asics are usually made for mining only one algorithm, and due to this they have high performance. On those algorithms where ASICs are mining, video cards are not profitable. But video cards are very versatile and can mine many algorithms that exist now and which will appear in the future.
Not every user can mine on ASIC at home due to noise or high power consumption, and any miner can use video cards.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 3-4 videocards in a regular computer case - is it possible? on: April 21, 2021, 11:55:47 AM
Hi, guys!

I'm gonna assemble a video-cards miner which will look like a regular big PC... Pls, don't ask why I'm gonna do it... Smiley

I think it will be possible to place 3-4 cards like 1080ti and connect two of them directly into a motherboard and two others via riser cables.

I guess the biggest problem is gonna be in cooling. Maybe I will need a big server tower case with powerful fans... Maybe it will be possible to install additional fans into a regular big case...

What do you think, guys? Is is possible to assemble a miner with 3-4 videocards (like 1080ti) in a closed computer case with good cooling conditions?

Thank you in advance!
You can easily build such a personal computer using a mining case. The main problem with a closed case is additional cooling. Your case will have to be supplemented with 4-8 powerful fans, and it will be very uncomfortable to work with such a computer because of the noise.
And everyone you know will ask you about the noise of your PC.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Is it recommended to use M.2 expansion slots to connect an extra GPU? on: April 21, 2021, 11:50:59 AM
I would like to know if there’s miners who have used a PCI Express 4X Female to NGFF M.2 M Key Male Adapter converter card to connect an extra GPU through M.2 expansion slot?

My understanding is that a normal USB3 PCIE riser card is then installed on the expansion card… so a motherboard with 6 available PCIE slots can connect one or two more GPUs.

If yes, is there specific features for compatibility I have to look on the motherboard or CPU?

Thank you
It is better to purchase a motherboard with 6-8 PCI-E connectors or more for building mining farms.
A large number of adapters lead to additional failures. Most miners who cost a mining farm for several years try to avoid additional adapters,
but some miners use them.

https://aliexpress.ru/item/4000120000691.html
SSD hard drives are very expensive if you want to mine Chia coin.
You need to take a motherboard that can still be used for mining on video cards, because mining Chia coins consumes very few resources.
But so far nothing is known about the future price of this coin.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Gaming laptops are left out on: April 21, 2021, 11:07:31 AM


image from videocardz.com

says there are hundreds of RTX30 gaming laptops mining in that one farm.
Do they have no breakdown statistics? I don't mind additional cooling and the laptops are very close to each other.
It is easier to put them in the shape of the letter A so that they do not touch each other and do not heat each other.
The metal shelf will also heat up, I don't understand this degen mining Smiley
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Getting older GPUs to mine on: April 21, 2021, 11:01:10 AM
Buy a better PX 570 for £ 120-150 and you can still mine most of the modern coins besides Ethereum.
No need to buy for mining video cards that are more than 7 years old.
The oldest that you can buy from Nidia is 1060, 1070 and higher, and AMD has an example of R380 4 GB
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: RGBs - LEDs :) on: April 19, 2021, 02:44:03 PM
RGB FUSION or Palit ThunderMaster will help you if you are using Windows. These programs will probably turn off the backlight for other manufacturers of video cards. Hive OS has a checkbox in the settings for "Turn off the backlight" but this does not work on all video cards.
You can always use a mechanical method

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mobile rtx2060ti hashrate on: April 18, 2021, 01:57:38 PM
rtx2060ti overclocked gives 40 megahash.
The version for laptops should give the same result, but in order to protect the video card from overheating and high power consumption, the best hash rate will be in the region of 32-36 megahash.
In mining on a laptop, it is not the hash rate that is important, but the temperature of your video card. Therefore, you should take care of additional cooling.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Gaming laptops are left out on: April 18, 2021, 01:50:24 PM
The only thing that's not scarce and useful for mining right now is gaming laptops and the surprising thing is they aren't costly in price meaning that many people aren't buying for mining purpose, I'm thinking of getting rid of my xbox one X finally and get a gaming laptop with massive gpu onboard not for mining purpose but gaming yet I could mine with it anyways to make few dollars
Every country has a different situation and income level. In my country, gaming laptops are very expensive and it is not profitable to buy them for mining purposes. I'd rather buy a video card and get a higher hashrate for the same price. If you've decided to buy a gaming laptop and you're happy with the price, then that's great.
You should be aware that a mining laptop can break from overheating. Therefore, gaming laptops are not the best solutions for gaming and mining. It is better to use a personal computer, but not a mobile one.
