We can sit and argue the best pool all day long.

for a 500 soon to be 700 s-7 miner with all the gear in China

his money to be made or saved is in optimizing his setup.

1 s-7 controller runs 3 s-7's   by getting his longer cables from France as I linked before   he could take hundreds of controllers off line.

I simply ask would you want 700 controllers wired or 233?

or would you want 500 controllers wired or 167?

the controllers are worth money he has an opportunity to sell them or keep them as spare parts.

the longer  cables are cheap.  but  to get back to his question of best pool his gear is in china his net connection to f2pool  may be far more reliable then any other connection.

@ op ckpool is a solo mining pool with very low fees. you could solo mine at it and collect a block about every 30 hours with normal luck.

variance would mean long droughts maybe as long as 7 to 8 days  in your case.  it would also mean quick blocks.  I made 2 in under 3 hours with 500th on ck's pool

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Hi Phillip,

Appreciate your advice, but I have all up and running for a few days now, I rather not mess with it even if it saves me a bit.

Okay, I have taken everyones advice into consideration about trying out different ones to test what I get.

I am now currently taking a stab at p2pool with a portion of my machines, then I will try something next.

Thanks guys.

Are mining on your own p2pool node - or using a public node? If so, what one?  Wink

Why would you do that? With the number of miners he has it will likely be an overloaded node already. p2pool doesn't scale to that many miners.

Just to see how my miners perform with it, purely for curiosity. I've no idea where the node is located though.....for latency reasons I mean. I'm always pointing a few miners at different nodes for comparison, I find it very interesting, and educating (I like to learn).

do yourself a favor and order the longer wires.  read this below


 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1216606.0

even if you do not use the wires or set up all over.

having the wires on hand will allow you to get a dead machine working.

I have 6 wires on hand.

Even if you order 30 wires for 30 usd it gives you the chance to get a dead machine back up rather then wait for a spare part.

I know this is a nuts and bolts issue like tweaking old carbs on 1950's cars.

but to have 0 cables and 0 BB's or controllers for spares when you run 500 machines is asking for a problem.

the cables in a box are piece of mind.

have fun and good luck mining.  Maybe you can find a pool that works a little better then 97.2 percent

Just another bit of food for thought.  Bitmain has historically not played nicely with p2pool using their default firmware/drivers.  They have their own lousy fork of cgminer, and refuse to incorporate work that both -ck and kano have done to improve it.  Especially in regards to p2pool, Bitmain's default driver will not submit stale shares.  Furthermore, Bitmain hardware typically loses 10% or more hash rate on p2pool - again because of their lousy coding.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

PPS takes a huge amount of fee as it pays you before a block is mined, eliminating the bad luck factor. P2Pool is a distributed pool which allows users to run their node but the hashrate is low and offer lacks features and stability. PPLNS is undoubtedly the best choice as it has low fees and many pools support it.

Regarding this, has anyone tried installing the S5 cgminer binary into an S7? A bit daring, I know.......
