Hi Folks,


I stopped my nearly brandnew S3+ miners at BTC passing 400US$ (S1 -> S3 selfmade Upgrade),
though I have 2 pay high energy fees.

With the winter comming in, it got reactivated,
and the better one (~478GHs) is participating in this S3 Solo game (the other @nicehash).

... after 16 days, I got a respectable best share,

{"hashrate1m": "338G", "hashrate5m": "434G", "hashrate1hr": "447G", "hashrate1d": "460G", "hashrate7d": "433G", "lastupdate": 1449149542, "workers": 1, "shares": 178751257, "bestshare": 749187554.6695118, "bestever": 749187554}

but no goal yet.

... I will keep it running for about 120 days.

Cheesy PanneKopp

P.S. I do not believe, it us useful to permanently reboot the miner - strong wishes do not provide good luck ^^

... please make an educated guess !

Welcome to the party, PanneKopp! Very respectable bestshare so far right there. The reboot has to do with the slowing of hashrate occasionally or changing of settings. But (and this is probably just mental) if my little Sparky doesn't pull decent shares after a week he's getting a reboot to make me feel better.  Grin



Update: Sparky's best share right now is 674,868,887. Not too shabby considering one of his chips is wonky and X's out after about 10 minutes.

Solo mining is alive and profitable!

Try powering it off for 5 minutes and then firing it up again.  Sometimes I get an X and this always has cleared it up.

Yeah, that works for a little bit. But it always comes back within 20 minutes. I've learned to live with it. Sometimes it's a -, sometimes an X. I just gave up on that little sucker. If the reboots from cold state and new high dollar thermal paste won't keep that one going it's just a bad chip.

Just joined in on the solo mining with this setup, 6x S3+ runnning at frequency 231.25. Check out the picture.  Plan on keeping this going for a bit to see what i get.  With pool mining I have been averaging aroung 6$ a day worth of bitcoins at the current exchange rate.

{"hashrate1m": "2.93T", "hashrate5m": "2.85T", "hashrate1hr": "2.28T", "hashrate1d": "215G", "hashrate7d": "31.9G", "lastupdate": 1449919741, "workers": 6, "shares": 4519302, "bestshare": 22392908.006607991, "bestever": 22392908}

Cool, keep us updated Smiley I'd love to see you find a block, since I'm also going to attempt solo mining once I get my S3.
I think 120 days is cutting it a bit short though.. Just my opinion.

This is the closest I could find to what you're asking, it's not a guide for creating a solo mining pool, but it will get you started.
Luckily it's still up to date I believe.

Clock settings nor resetting work on Sparky. He just has a bad chip. I've run the gammit on repair options, even re-applying thermal paste to his heat sinks. He just refuses to fire that one chip up for more than a few minutes. I've learned to live with it.

Nice hashrate! You've got a much better chance than me of hitting a block. Just don't give up!

Quick question the username is my btc addy can i put the same addy for 2 of my s1 or do i need to add a .etc or _etc afte my address or use 1 for the two

cheers guys





You can use 1 for the two. The "sprinkling" of additional data each miner puts in to generate different hashes keeps them from working on the same results. Good luck!




Hi Folks,


I stopped my nearly brandnew S3+ miners at BTC passing 400US$ (S1 -> S3 selfmade Upgrade),
though I have 2 pay high energy fees.

With the winter comming in, it got reactivated,
and the better one (~478GHs) is participating in this S3 Solo game (the other @nicehash).

... after 16 days, I got a respectable best share,

{"hashrate1m": "338G", "hashrate5m": "434G", "hashrate1hr": "447G", "hashrate1d": "460G", "hashrate7d": "433G", "lastupdate": 1449149542, "workers": 1, "shares": 178751257, "bestshare": 749187554.6695118, "bestever": 749187554}

but no goal yet.

... I will keep it running for about 120 days.

Cheesy PanneKopp

Yes, 120 days is very short. You wouldn't try to catch a fish with only 15 minutes of fishing! Smiley When is your S3 coming in EternalGloom?

I've got a self hosted pool all set up on Ubuntu as a virtual machine here - I'll be posting another upgrade to it this week though so you might hold off if you go that route.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1235123

Once you fire it up and configure it you just have to point your miners to it and off it goes.




Update: Sparkys best share is - 408,491,826

Solo mining is alive and profitable!

I'm still comparing different options at the moment, I'm set on getting an s3, it's just a matter of finding one at the right price with relatively cheap shipping.
Import tax is also something I need to factor in possibly (am from Europe).

Just joined in on the solo mining with this setup, 6x S3+ runnning at frequency 231.25. Check out the picture.  Plan on keeping this going for a bit to see what i get.  With pool mining I have been averaging aroung 6$ a day worth of bitcoins at the current exchange rate.

{"hashrate1m": "2.93T", "hashrate5m": "2.85T", "hashrate1hr": "2.28T", "hashrate1d": "215G", "hashrate7d": "31.9G", "lastupdate": 1449919741, "workers": 6, "shares": 4519302, "bestshare": 22392908.006607991, "bestever": 22392908}

Good luck with the solo pool, nice little setup you have there, does it get hot in the room?

Yes it gets pretty hot, I have a window fan blowing in cold air.  If it wasn't winter time I'm not sure what I would do about the heat.

Makes me want to give solo mining a try but the odds would be against me ever finding a block Sad, Congrats on your block.
