Hello miniZ!

HiveOS miners are having trouble mining Equihash 125/4 [Flux] on the latest miniZ v1.9z5
They claim the issue is with the miner version itself.

Here's the link to the topic discussion on Hiveon forum: https://hiveon.com/forum/t/after-upgrading-to-0-6-219-221101-my-miners-dont-mine-anymore/79610

Thank you!

And how is this surprising, coming from the "EU regulator" who clearly represents centralized powers? Of course PoW is a threat to them, as Metroid mentioned scammers - they need to get rid of transparency in order to scam participants efficiently.

Simple, if it smells like trash it probably is trash...
and that's why also screw ETH.

please see this post, maybe you have the same problem with windows update like me:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5349304
Windows Update KB5004237 prevent strap driver installation of CLAYMORE mining software.
After uninstalling the update the system works ok but the system installed it again after 5 hours when my automatic updates were disabled.
please help me get the claymore driver signature.

The only fast solution here is to uninstall the update, and use Windows Update Blocker to stop Win 10 from autoinstalling it. You really don't need all those "security" updates on mining rig if you use firewall and don't use rig to constantly browse web. I've used old Ltsb ver of win10 from 2015 on my mining rigs for at least 2 years without any updates and there were zero problems.

You can get Windows Update Blocker 1.6 from https://www.sordum.org/9470/windows-update-blocker-v1-6/ , it allows to disable win update service and stop medic services that reenable windows update service.


lol update blocker  Roll Eyes
deactivate windows update in the right way and no one needs and "update blocker". my rigs makes no update in the last 4 years without any extra suspicious tool

Of course you can do it manually, if you know how to disable windows update services (at least 3 of them) via registry, getting ownership of protected registry keys to change it and so on. Also seems like you are using old version of win10 (if you are saying about 4 years without updates), and it was  easier back then, because with every win10 major update MS hardened update service "protection". So I adviced really fast and easy way to disable update services with update blocker.

Microsoft has always had a tool for shit like this and it's called group policy editor. Disable the update there and the problem is gone.

Yeah, I don't really understand plotting/mining with SSDs, I mean aren't HDDs a better option purely because of greater durability than SSDs?
We all understand SSDs have a finite TBW and after that they are dead whereas HDDs will work as long as mechanical parts are fine which is in general more durable than SSDs in my opinion.

When setting up any kind of miner I'm all in for as better durability as you can pick and/or get out of your hardware rather than mining as aggressive/faster as you can.
That should be a "default" mentality for ANY miner out there!

Really! Come on, you have done an awesome miner.
BUT. "Tonga gpus (R9 285/285X/380/380X, W7100, S7150) now supported for ethash and kawpow."
Thats good, but you just cant and wont do anything about hawaii gpus?
Its so funny when every other miner has support for Hawaii/Grenada, but then you dont. You, who advertise by your name to support AMD.
I have 3x r9 390, one RX 580 and one Vega56. I cannot put the Vega in my hiveos rig, because it works only with TRM.
Vega goes 54.2 MH/s with TRM, but yeah, no Hawaii support so i cant use Teamredminer. Then, for some reason, vega wont hash anything with any other miner. Only TRM.
All in all, i cant put my vega into my rig without hawaii support.

Such a big shame and gutted feeling, because i cant use your miner and my vega 56 because of missing hawaii/grenada support. They are good cards for eth mining, when biosmodded correct..



Hawaii support on TRM would be awesome if that's possible. I'm using HiveOs exclusively on my r9 390(x) rigs getting ~26MH/s @ 115-124W across all 8 gpus.
As far as I know we are lead to believe that it is AMD's fault 390/290 gpus can't get full hashrate on windows because compute mode is not supported for Hawaii/Grenada chips in the amd windows drivers.

Now, let me clarify, I'm not a programmer nor do I know how to write a miner software, but I'm here long enough that I witnessed times when you could get full hashrates ~30Mh/s stock with 390/290 on claymore's miner  out of the box...back in the days...

You don't need any calculators to figure out that this GPU is useless at mining. I remember when it came out and it was about a decade ago, somewhere in the year 2010. Its successor was the Radeon 79xx series. So basically the HD7950,7970, and R9 280X. And these days you can't even find anything decent to mine on those GPUs which are a huge step above in performance and have more memory.

I actually had the HD6990 which was the dual GPU version of the 6970. It was a pretty powerful card. It could mine BTC, LTC, X11, ETH and ZEC. Basically it was a huge power hog however it was like 40nm technology instead of the 14nm in the newer GPUs. Hence not ideal for mining at all.

ah.. the good ol' days. I had 2x HD5970(also dual GPU) both supplied with arctic coolers as my first mining/gaming cards
I remember they could withstand worse mining environments unlike the later cards probably because of the larger fab process - 28nm,
vrm @105-110c was totally fine for them.
One of them is still in working condition.

Cheers!

This is the third time my radeon VII died with error 43. Started the RMA and hopefully they would send a new one.
My question is if they send a new one, should I use it  or just resell as it probably is best time to sell GPU.


But the real question is what temps did your card suffer to output error 43?

I'm guessing +80c?

Be honest.

Enermax sucks

For mining?

Segotep?

I don't quite understand why most people say Enermax sucks,
Can you guys elaborate?

I've been using 4 Enermax Platimax 1700W platinum PSUs for 3 years now and had no problem with them whatsoever since the first day I put them to work.
I mean you get 100W-200W more power then your usual top of the line EVGA (1600W) or Corsair (1500W) or other competitive psu manufacturer,
It's at least +100 cheaper than the competition and has been for years for the pretty much equal build quality and performance as far as I can tell and jonnyguru confirm which is a huge plus.

The only disadvantage I can think of are shorter pcie cables(50cm) than the competition, also the only thing I could see as a deal breaker if you really need those extra 10-20cm more.

Now with all that said, would you kindly tell me why Enermax sucks compared to other PSUs?

EDIT: to be fair I'm talking about Enermax' Platimax series, I'm not familiar with the cheaper line up as cheaper models usually suck whoever manufactures them.

Great thread, but I think you should add fijis with hawaiis there: fury, fury x and nano cards since they are all from the same era.

anyways, my 390 and 390x get 800 and a little above 800 H/s on the v7, on the v8 they perform slightly worse - around 780 H/s all stock clocks.

On the other hand, my fijis (have them all 3) on v7 get the same hashrate as 390, but on v8 even worse then hawaii, 650 H/s at best, obviously they're running less hot and consuming less power than hawaiis,
but I don't know if I'm doing something wrong here.
How is it possible that fijis have worse mining performance than hawaii cards in v7 and v8 when fijis are clearly more powerful than hawaiis?

Does somebody here have a better experience with fijis than me in v7/v8 mining?

I have had good luck with srbminer on hawaii, what miner are you using?

Hi,

can someone post rx 480/580 8gb settings for best hashrate with stock bios, driver 18.6.1

how do you guys get those ~950 H/s I read somewhere in this topic with 57 intensity set?

Have you modified your gpu bios to achieve that?

I'd like to share my latest windows clean install adventure:

8x 8MB Rx580's all OC settings the same for each try
  • Windows 10, build 1703 + 18.3.2 = very good on 1.6.7, good on 1.6.8 (CN-Heavy Hashrate maxes out at 8600 h/s) -Sometimes crashes on algo change, all cards maxes h/s
  • Clean install of Windows 10, build 1803 + recommended driver 18.6.1 = shit (7600 h/s)
  • Clean install of Windows Enterprise, build whatever + recommended driver 16.8.1 = somewhat shit (7800 h/s)
  • Windows Enterprise + 18.3.2 = good (8200 h/s) -> This is what I'm doing right now. Seems to be stable on algo change, although randomly 2-4 cards would hash at shit speeds.

So the newer windows builds are shit, and Adrenalin 18.6.1 is not doing me any favors. Couldn't try 18.5.x with so much downtime biting my ass.
I'm not hashing v8 anymore because I'm losing to much hash with the 18.6.1 drivers, even on clean windows installs.

Anxiously waiting for the new version, I hope Doktor can do his magic once again.


What intensities are you running the cards at?
I just lowered my Vegas from 120 to 112. Not too sure why I thought going higher for v8 was ever going to be a good idea... just followed blindly what was written here as "suggestion".

So far all the Vegas are hashing fine - I isolated my flaky card and run slightly lower clocks and higher voltage on it to be on the safe side. So touch wood, I think I've solved my problems...

I use the default intensities (56) for Rx580. Right now though it began hashing again at 8500, after a 2-3 hours though (it goes for 8200-8250 for quite a while), better late than never, awesome. Sometime 1 or two cards do get stuck at low hashrates, that's quite unpredictable. But ultimately, 18.6.1 is still a bad choice for my mining (Currently 18.3.2 is doing mighty fine) as the max it can go has been 7800 on my rig, even after hours.



I observed my fury cards sometimes getting stuck at lower hashrates, changing worksizes for those cards helped, dunno what your default worksizes are for Rx580 but it helped my furys changing from 16 to 8 and vice versa

Hi there

I'm back with my old grand ma card AMD 6950  Grin Wink

Ive try the lastest release since the fork V8 monero and i can't hash

This old pre gcn card work on V7, it could hash on V8 ? ( i know it's old) but i've 3 card at work ...

i've try kernel cmd line --kernel 1 or 2 and it didn't start hashing.
The is a way to use specific kernel for this old card with a special command line ?

Thx Smiley

Since you're using an older card I'd suggest you try "kernel" : 2 together with "adl_type" : 2
because it's set by default  "adl_type" : 1 which is better for newer cards.

you can set it in config-normalv8.txt not in batch afaik, ReadMe is your friend! and take care not to forget a comma[,] or something +when editing config-normalv8.txt otherwise your miner won't work.

Hi guys!

Over the last few days I played with the SRBminer settings on my 390[hawaii] and fury[fiji] cards
and I wanna share my settings with the best results I've got for this v8 algo.

390 cards hash around 760 H/s with these settings

{ "id" : 0, "intensity" : 47, "worksize" : 16, "threads" : 2, "kernel" : 1, "persistent_memory" : true, "adl_type" : 1}

fury cards hash around 650 H/s with these settings

{ "id" : 1, "intensity" : 78, "worksize" : 16, "threads" : 1, "kernel" : 1, "persistent_memory" : true, "adl_type" : 1}
I observe for fury cards sometimes you can use worksize 8 if you get lower hashrate or 16 if you get lower hashrate with 8

OS:      Win 10 Pro v1709
Drivers: Adrenalin 18.6.1

I've tested worksizes 4-32,
Played mostly with intensities trying to find the sweet spot together with double and single thread usages,
Persistent memory mostly helps hawaii cards squeeze around 10-15 extra hashes, didn't observe any difference if there is any for fijis.
If you're gonna set "kernel" : 2, best to set "adl_type" : 2 too but I didn't manage to squeeze more hashes than with "kernel" : 1, "adl_type" : 1
as long as you don't mix "kernel" : 2, "adl_type" : 1  OR "kernel" : 1, "adl_type" : 2 you won't have bad hashrates (I don't remember exactly, something like around 500 h/s on both cards)

Previously on the claymore v11.3 algo v7 I was getting around 800 H/s for 390s and the same for furys too
So it's not as much big difference switching from v7 to v8 for hawaii cards as it is for furys

So I'm asking you guys who have fijis, what are your results, did somebody manage to get better results with fijis on v8 srbminer and of course share your settings

Thanks!

pagefile = number of cards * card memory amount + 2

example: 6x RX with 8GB = 6*8+2 = 50 - so type 50000 min/max

alright, thank you guys for that input!
I have 4x furys 4gb + 2x 390 hawaiis 8gb cards in this particular rig which means I need to set my pagefile to at least 34gb = 4x4+2x8+2

When I set 34 GB I had the same problem, srbminer not running but looks like when I set it to 48GB all cards seems to be finally running fine,

but now I have another issue/question for you guys specifically the fury card owners.
While my hawaiis are easily reaching ~730 h/s with this new CN-pow8 algo, my furys are not!
They barely reach 400 h/s which I find unacceptable and is exactly half the hashrate I had before compared to mining with claymore's miner on CN-pow7.

What miner settings do you suggest so I can get the most our of furys since they are running even colder than before
As of right now, I'm using these default settings on my furys and hawaiis and getting these hashrates in the images below

Thanks a lot!

Hi everybody,
can anyone please help me with an issue I'm dealing with?
In forward, I apologise if this problem has been asked and resolved before already.

I'm having a problem running SRBminer across my win 10 rigs, I'm getting this error in windows

application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware


Bear in mind my win 10 rigs are perfectly operational on other miners such as claymore's
but windows is blocking SRBminer's access to graphics hardware for some reason and I don't know how to bypass this shit.

the result of error I get in the miner is in this image




How did you guys bypass this windows issue? It seems like it's a fairly simple registry fix or something

Thank you!

I think you need to add more pagefile

I've already set it to 16 GB across all my rigs, isn't that enough for SRBminer or do you suggest more?

Ok I can test pow8 now. But note that I does not guarantee that I will release new version or that I will do it before upcoming fork, this is free miner now and I'm not going to add any fees again, so check other miners, there are many of them.

I guess i shut down the rigs on oct.18 until no update to pow8, dont care to mess around with others. Fee is the least problem, most of us pay it gladly for this fine miner.

I think so. I have a few R9 nano, it will not run seamlessly on other miners.

yeah, I have the same problem, my furys and nanos won't run on srbminer because it reports a problem of having too low vram, wtf?

I disagree, immigration is only the consequence, not the problem, We must realize what and more importantly who is causing the problem which leads to immigration.

recent example,
There wouldn't be massive immigrations to Europe from Syria if certain countries/organizations wouldn't be trying to make war and sell weapons, do you wanna live in war infested country? hell, no!
Why the fuck don't they leave them alone, then there wouldn't be any immigrations anywhere...

Dissolution of Yugoslavia - at some point in history I'd dare to say most powerful country in the europe, what a carefully laid out plan that was...and at the end as a big boom let's make them hate and kill each other, good job USA, whatever you touch you turn into a warzone.
I mean who the fuck else in the world invests so much money into weapons and whatnot than fuckin' USA??
