Hi, in the UK can you actually buy the mining only cards?

Also, im looking at buying some more 1060s any variation between the minis and the normal ones and Is micron memory as good as samsung?

Hi to all got a big problem:

Just buyed

4x gtx 1060 6gb zotac
1x Asus Z270-p
Celeron
128SSD
4gb ram ddr4
EVGA 1000GQ

I've started with a brand new WIN 10, with just antivirus, malware bytes and ethminer (cuda optimized version).

Afterburner core +0 +50 +100 (no big changes opn mh/s) + 600 memory clock

After a few days of working and some bios setup like PCI EXPRESS from auto to GEN1 and 4g option I was scoring 90-98 mh/s

Then I've add to the ALLOW list of malwarebytes the ethminer and POP 110-120 mh/s.

I was happy as a kid on xmas and after 4-5 houirs of works I've noticed that I've lost like 3mh/s so i reboot the CMD and now I'm working at 94-95... WTF happened? any ideas?

What I've done now:

Stopped all the background services
Delete all the useless programs and malware bytes too.
Changed 2 option in the nvidia cpanel
Tried also the cuda parallel

but nothing changed I can't get back to the 112-120mh/s.

P.S. I have a lot of problem with the motherboard GPU, the monitor now is connected to the internal gpu and if I see the GPU list I just saw the 4x1060, the internal gpu happear and disappear, depends on reboot dunno.

sorry for my bad english hope you can understand all and help me.

merry xmas and happy new year to all
One 1060 is roughly 22-23 MH/s or so, give or take a little which would be around 90 MH/s total.

If you claim you had 120 MH/s this is what 4 x 1070 would give you roughly. So I am sorry but you will not be able to reach that with 4 x 1060.

Can someone give me some advice? I am going to build my first rig and plan on having 6 GPU's. I am planning on mining etherium and other alt coins, basically whatever I can mine to make me money.

I was thinking of getting 1060's because I heard they are the best model for ROI, but I don't know what brand to get? I would like to place an order today or tomorrow for them and I am willing to switch to a different card if it helps.

But what I dont understand is that the actually same card when minning alone can overclock more then when is mining with other.
Long story short: GPU and CPU crystals are carved out of round silicon wafers. It is considered that crystals cut from the center are better in performance and stability than those from the outer edge.
A lower grade crystal will take higher voltage to achieve the same frequency and will generate more errors outside of its standard frequency.

http://www.techradar.com/news/computing-components/graphics-cards/how-gpus-are-made-1000923/2

I worked as a Process Engineer for Intel for about 3 years. My duties included data mining and trying to find correlations between datasets. I know CPUs ate different than GPUs but the process is more or less the same. There was very little correlation between yield and bin and position on the water. It really was just luck with where defects landed and what kind of defects that existed.

Hello.
I am using 2x1060
Gigabyte Geforce gtx 1060 windforce oc 3gb  -- hynix memory
MSI Geforce gtx 1060 3gb oc  -- hynix memory                   

Mining cryptonight (monero, sumo, etc) and getting 503 H/s with both cards.
What you think, is it good? Can i push them some more?

Using xmr-stak 2.2.0
with settings like Threads 32 and Blocks 36, in MSI mem 650, CC 100, and power 100% (does nothing if i put it to 65%, takes 220 w from wall both cases)

My new EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 SC 3GB GDDR5 with single fan is just arrived.
I had a quick test, the performance is quite good, I got the deal with 214$/GPU, so far so good.
I really like this GPU because it could achieve good hashrate and price is reasonable as well.
So I rethink about the next deal for P104-100, after finish some tests with ETH, I will make final decision.

I think this setting is the most stable for my Galax GTX 1060 6GB OC edition with Hynix memory and dstm equihash miner 0.5.7.
Efficiency is not my target at the moment. In flypool I can get avg 330 H/s.


I've ever done many tests on Galax GTX 1060 6GB OC dedition for my friend as well. But the hashrate never reached that high.
The highest it got was around 310 sol/s (power limit 85%). Maybe you tested with only 1GPU while my tests were done with 8GPUs, so that's why the result is much different.

So what speeds are you getting on ETH with micron memory.
micron mostly can do around 23.4 mhs with a 650 memoc

thanks. is very similar to samsung.

What was your core clock at 310

So interesting to see these settings.

I never touch the core clock but my memory clock is so much higher. Power wise, I'm always at 70-72.

Hi guys
I'm checking in with Zotac 1060 6gb amp (Micron mem).

I'm getting ~23.7 Mh/s (ETH)
PL 70%
Voltage 830mV
Core ~1580 mHz
Memory +740mHz

Are those settings safe to use?
Can i make some damage with overclocking memory that high, while undervolting (and underclocking) core?

I think i have good stats, but i'm conserned if it's too good to be true.

I would really apreciate your feedback.
Thanks

So now all new cards are with not fast memory? I was planning to buy others.... I'll need to change

The Asus GTX 1060 3G OC "White" edition cards I just bought from New Egg came with Samsung memory, yet performed just like Hynix out of the box. From what I gathered reading other posts here, Samsung memory is supposed to have higher initial Ethash performance and accept much more mem overclocking to get to around 29 MH/s. So far I've only pushed the mem overclock by 300, and was able to get ~22 MH/s out of them (implying about 1 MH/s per 100 MHz of mem overclock).


 Samsung doesn't have "higher initial performance", it's all about the common ability of it to overclock more than Micron or Hynix with reliability that makes it the better option for mining.


I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

Ah, thanks for correcting my misunderstanding - I thought I must have gotten a really rotten deal!

For Ethereum
Asus 1060 3gb with hynix gives a proxy 17-18, so yours 22 is more or less OK.
That's micron hashes usually. May be you can push to 23 24 with samsung.
You won't be able to hit 29 with 1060 3gb. This hashrate 29-30 is for 1070s.

Hynix is OK memory but on ati where you can mod bios. On nvidia it's locked so we are stuck with whatever memory straps are set by the manufacturer.

Example my hynix ati 570 can do 29, my asus 3gb 1060 only 18.

Find the highest overclock they hold stable at then wind down the power limit until the hashrate begins to drop off. My 1060 3GB cards' sweet spot nets 24MH/s @ 65% power limit. Also you should really check out other algos than ethash. ZCL (equihash) is seeing good results at the moment.

Thanks for the tuning tip. I haven't really messed with the power limit all that much, but I did just learn how surprisingly inefficient the "private label" PSU in my Cyberpower (a semi-custom brand at Newegg) is when I replaced it with a mere 80+ Bronze model from a local retailer (Best Buy) and power draw went from 400W before to about 240W now... that's just crazy!

Yeah, I know the Nvidia cards are much better at Equihash and Lyra2v2 and I've had the twin 1060s mining ZEN (on luckpool) for the last 5 days or so and am up to a whopping big 0.611 ZEN. The big jump in difficulty the last couple of days has me thinking I'll move over to something that isn't on fire at the moment (like that eternal disappointment, VTC).

Not everybody will agree but I will:)
I have a rig with only gtx 1060 (see signature) and currently, the most profitable coin is ZCL. I make around 30$/day, it even went up to 75$ in one day a couple of days ago. If you mine you'll have to mine different coin and check for opportunities.

13 GPU Nvidia Rig running under Ubuntu 16 (eth hash rate: 300+Mh/s @ 1000W for whole rig): 3x EVGA GTX 1060 3Gb (24MH/s @ 65W) + 6x MSI Armor GTX 1060 3Gb (24MH/s @ 70W) + 1x MSI GTX 1060 (24Mh/s @ 65W) + 3x Zotac GTX 1060 (24MH/s @ 65 W). PSU 2400W, Asrock ASRock H110 Pro BTC+, cheap Chinese risers, Kingston SSD 120Gb, 8Gb memory. Selling some of my GPUs (around 200€, still under warranty), if you're interested, contact me in private.
