381  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Bubble Bursting or Just a Short Term Correction? on: May 26, 2017, 12:07:00 AM
Depends on the coin. For many the bubble burst it looks to me. Some will get some growth, but most coins I check upon are in a bear market now. Whether it be a bubble bursting or just bear season for a while (not all coins were bubblish).

Well I have seen whats happening in market in past specifically 2013 when it crashed like that in 1 day and than bounced little bit and than kept crashing not sure if the market is any different for BTC, LTC Ethereum etc, but it could be the beginning of the end for all cryptos until smart money will prevail.

Hey guys, as you know all the major Alt coins and major coins like BTC,Ethereum,LTC etc.. have been dropping heavily.

Do you guys think its a correction ? or a Finally the Bubble is Bursting?

Turns out I had the correct LTC address the whole time.  Gdax responded they were slow at processing transactions, so the send of Litecoins took about 26 hours.  That's pretty absurd.

yep strange.

hashnest just added 1258 units at $3600 a piece its better to buy @ $3k if you are looking for one. You get free power supply and complete control to mine your Alt.  Rather than Hashnest controlling everything...

This week there'll be an announcement about Wayne Enterprise joining EEA. Stay tuned !

that made me laugh...lol


Just waiting for mother of all crashes who knows maybe it won't happen because people are invested big time with hardware and mining facilities that they won't sell it any cheaper than mining cost.

Yes the price has been Insane...

Is there anyone who can calm my fears if I sent coins to a wrong address?  Stressed AF right now.   I've literally sent hundreds of transactions, but this big one I messed up.  If it never hit a proper valid LTC address it must be recoverable right?

Yes don't be afraid coinbase and gdax support is backed up it takes them average of 2 days to respond your LTC will be recoverable it seems the system just auto debit your account but they will be recovered. please share with us the outcome.

388  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Need help deciphering motherboard Specs on: May 22, 2017, 07:57:02 AM
Hi,

I'm just overwhelmed by the amount of motherboards available from any given brand. I need help understanding some things.

1. In general, is a Z170X board made by Gigabyte roughly the same as a Z170X board made by MSI? and I don't mean those two specific boards, but rather the number "170" referring to a specific component on the board that has a common function and performance?

2. Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI LGA 1151 ATX in this scenario of a model number, what do all of the other acronyms really mean (XP-SLI LGA ATX...etc), especially in regards to mining performance. There seems to be variations of the same board with large price differences, and honestly it is confusing the F out of me.

3. Is it considered risky to just flat out buy a cheap motherboard that has 6 slots and expect it to work with 6 cards? for example, I'm looking at this mobo, with is generally not talked about in the mining forums, but is well priced and appears to have the slots needed for my 6 GPU rig. ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ ATX AMD Motherboard. What are the chances of this thing not working with 6 cards (besides losing the $80) because I read about people saying that as along as it has the slots avaialbe for the number of cards, it should work. But then others writing that it will only work on certain operating systems with full set of cards, and also read that if it has a certain cpu config it will not support more than 4 cards despite having 6 slots. It is all very confusing.

I'd like to compile a good set of answers so I can possibly help put together a more difinitive guide to selecting a proper motherboard. I don't like that I have to put in so much reading just to find a suitable board for a rig, and I would like to prevent having others that come along from having to deal with this as well. The forums are full of very contradictory information between people and their rigs.

Thanks,

dc




Please google a lot of terms... put some effort into learning it yourself. Its not so hard you will figure it out.

#3 yes don't buy blindly 6 slots motherboards they will not work. read some topics and see what other users are using it will save you hours of frustration etc.

there are plenty of motherboards available just buy the ones you know have been working for other members.

good luck
389  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Everything I want is sold out everywhere! on: May 22, 2017, 07:52:46 AM
IMHO, other alternatives are: Biostar TB250-BTC and TB350-BTC
These two are sold out

the asrock is almost discontinued but there are good alternative check the asus prime z270-a and p version they can carry up to 8 gpu with proper tweak https://www.nicehash.com/index.jsp?p=news&id=155

Ah yes, this looks like a good one. $40 more than what I had budgeted for my rigs, but may be worthwhile adding the extra cards there

I have asus prime z270-ar using 6 gpus not sure if i want to try 7th gpu.
390  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Help! Just sent LTC to ETH address. on: May 22, 2017, 07:34:36 AM
Ok, so I just ran a test with weird results.  I tried to do it again with a small amount of .001 LTC and send it to my ETH address. It errored out and said I couldn't send it.  However, the .001 did subtract from my account total.

I don't recall getting an error the first time though.  Ugh, I hope Coinbase support can answer me quickly tomorrow.  I'm kinda stressing since this is 400 LTC lost and I'm gonna be so pissed if I can't get them back.

good luck my experience with gdax and coin base support was horrible lost almost $1200 worth of coins sent gdax ethereum account and they said they cannot access it or access individual keys for safety reasons... even though the address is assigned to me.

your situation seems different i am sure they will be able to help.
391  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ethereum Spike? Any news? Just conference related... on: May 22, 2017, 03:13:27 AM
As we all Know Ethereum has Spiked almost 50% in last few days.


freeimagehost

I am speculating that they are about to announce move to POS from POW hence the spike.

I can't think of any other reason why the spike is happening.

Can people think of any other reasons?

Please share.
392  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [Mining OS] SimpleMining.net - Easy to use GPU MINING Operating System on: May 21, 2017, 04:18:31 AM
On the overclocking screen the text says: "core - you can set value in MHz for example 1100 or for each gpu 1000,1100,1050" and "memory - value in MHz. example 1850 or for each gpu 1850,1800,1790"
When I do that I get an error on initializing the OC settings: integer expression expected.

So... it is not true or I'm doing something wrong. What is it?

Question #1 how many cards in your rig?
Question # 2 what cards are they? [brand 4gb vs 8gb, did you bios mod?] etc?


Only input numbers nothing else.

For Example: I have 6 cards in my Rig first 4 are RX 570 and last 2 are RX 580
so I set the core speed at 1150 for all 6
& 1950 memory speed for firs 4 and #6 but 1750mhz for #5 [as it gives me error when i push it higher than that]

Hope that helps.

If you have 4 cards only input 4 numbers on OC settings.

https://preview.ibb.co/iLUrXa/smos.jpg

I have 6 cards: 1x RX480 8GB, 3x RX480 4GB, 2x RX470 4GB. All modded.
I have configured it like this:
Core MHz: 1175,1050,1050,1050,1050,1050
Memory MHz: 2175,1900,1900,1900,1900,1900
https://i.imgur.com/aQ6fMhZ.jpg

And at startup I get:

============ Preparing miners =============
============ OVERCLOCKING =================
/root/utils/oc_dpm.sh: line 6: [: 1175,1150,1150,1150,1150,1150: integer expression expected
GPU1:




try no spaces in between your commas


There aren't any

Dude it looks like you have space here "_ 1175,1150,1150,1150,1150,1150"
fix that check both lines just to be safe.

Try running without anything on it [stock settings] if it runs fine that means your input of number had a space in the beginning hope that helps.

Hey there, I need some help with RX 570 Sapphire Nitro

I'm trying to flash it's BIOS. I'm changing the values of VRAM to increase hashrate by copying and pasting 1:1750MHz values over 1:2000MHz and 2:1750MHz over 2:1875 and 2:2000MHz.

After a system restart, RX 570 driver crashes and MSI Afterburner doesn't recognize the driver...

Anyone knows a solution to this issue and first of all, am I doing it right by changing those values?

what memory? only swap the settings for 2:1750 not 1:1750,1:1875 etc...  only do the 2: memory timing.
you only use 1: memory timing for certain memory maker I am not sure but i would double check by googling it. I think its Samsung only.

Elpidia and Hynix is 2: timings

why do i get this message?

DevFee: stop mining and disconnect

you are paying a fee to the mining software developer.   my guess is claymore miner is the mining software.


Yes I know I pay a 1% fee for claymore but why does it say "stop mining and disconnect"?

for single mining every hour it connects and mines on behalf of the claymore author for 36 seconds.
the message you see is for "Start mining and disconnect mining" is because it is mining under claymores wallet for 36seconds.

Hi there, i have a rig with 5 rx 470 4gb and 6 rx 480 with 8gb (gigabyte g1).

I have a problem every 1 hour running the rx 470 4GB rig or sometimes even less.

in the first run it shows at generating DAG file that have 4096 MB of memory in GPU for write and use.

after 2 hours of running, for some reason claymore reboots this is normal that random crashes, but when it try to mine again shows only 1920 or less MB of memory available for DAG, and because that the common cannot write DAG file problem.

there is a way or a command or something that is missing to free those 4GB of ram available for dag file between every reboot?

i saw that some people add virtual memory, i added 8GB of physical memory to the rig, also created a swap partition, and nothing... also i am using the z270 chipset i tried the simplemining 8gb and 16gb version and same... tried with 6 gpus, 5 gpus, undervolts, but at some point when it restart at some time it looks like it were eating gpu available memory and not releasing them....

i tried to search about this stuff on internet but dag errors are only on 2gb ram or less vga's issue not rx 470 issue...

the rx 480 nitro+ 8gb had no issues...


because this i am thinking to switch to windows, and see if this fixes or at least i know that can be fixed with virtual memory..



#1 the reason for restarts is you are pushing your GPUs too far.
I have 1 RX 580 that when OC it to 1950/1150 mem clock/core clock it would crash after 25 min restarting the rig. I underclocked it to 1750/1150 and rig is stable.
#2 I see you are doing dual mining trying single mining like ethereum only as oppose to ether + Sia and see if that fixes the issue.
#3 have you tried the following Image? https://simplemining.net/download/

[   ]   simpleminer-RX-v1093-4.11.rc8-16.60-enableexe0ANDips0.imgc   2017-04-29 20:25   1.0G   
[X]   simpleminer-RX-v1093-4.11.rc8-16.60-enablerc60.imgc   2017-04-29 20:28   1.0G   

for me the second one works stable. on Z270 I have Asus Prime - AR Z270 Motherboard and i am using simpleminer-RX-v1093-4.11.rc8-16.60-enablerc60.imgc image.


the gigabyte g1 have Hynix memory and have another rig with a biostar b85 mother working without that issue at the same clock / mem speed, those rx 470 from gigabyte all of them are Hynix, they are awesome.

its a chipset related issue or risers i think, so now i am mining with 3 gpu only with 1150 /1650 to see if its stable, i will start adding cards with intervals of 6 hours to check it might be a faulty riser too for what i readed i think.

i've been using the first one, downloading the second one now for test it.

thanks for the reply i will kept u updated because maybe other people in the community might have the same issue now or later.



I am glad to hear you are liking your Gigabyte products in my personal experience i have sent back 3 Gigabyte RX 570 and thinking of sending another 1 back they are just bad card or just my luck.

last rig i built i used 4 different motherboards 10 different riser/cable combos couldn't figure out to save my life what was wrong with it. I kept updating bios doing changes swapping card modding them and unmodding them to factory stock bios.
Eventually after a lot of elimination it was 1 Gigabyte RX 580 card that was funky as soon as i eliminated that one Rig is stable. In all honesty i spent over $500 worth of part swapping out and 30+ hours and in the end it was that 1 Gigabyte RX 580.

What pikachu said, plus:

The (US) national electric code says the maximum CONTINUOUS current draw is 80% of the breaker rating. In this case, the highest continuous current for a 15 amp breaker is 12 amps total. Don't forget to include anything thing else on the breaker like lights or electronics.

If you are going into full power extraction mode, you might want to check that the labeling on your junction box is correct. If a particular breaker has scattered outlets, you may want to also map them out.

One last thing, I would talk to an electrician if you house has 14 gauge aluminum wiring. This is a problem.

Thank you for all the wonderful Info. My house was just built in dec 2016, hopefully its uptodate to code standard.

I think the only stuff built to withstand miner requirements are dryer & electric oven power lines. 220v lines. They have thicker gauge wires and more amps on circuit breaker.
using 110v power supply at high wattage at constant peak usage over long distance (from circuit breaker) is bad. Not a electrician, but I believe new wiring won't forgive mining requirements and laws of physics. Stick with the dryer power lines or pull new 220v lines.

great tip. I will tell my wife no more cooking [oven] or drying clothes [dryer] as i am gonna hijack those power outlets pappa needs to Mine!!!
