Since ETH is out of the game how do you switch between  different algorithms for mining?
Manually , or using Nicehash and similar solutions?

dual mine on gtx 1060 3gb means reducing hash rate for ETH, it's not such a good deal.

What about 6gb?

I never tried but from what i read, it should be possible without affecting ETH hashrate

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.

It depends on what you're willing to do. Minergate and alikes are the easiest one, you just have to turn on smart mining and it will select automatically the best currency. The drawback is that Minergate is not very transparent in how much money you're making and the choice of best currency is questionable. I tried with my rig and XMR was always the recommended currency while it's far from being the most profitable one.

You can go for a dual miner like claymore and there you'll mine two currencies at the same time. If you want something more custom made, you'll probably have to develop a script. I have seen mining pools proposing automatic switching but I haven't tried them.

Sure.

Except the 1050 doesnt yield a lot. If you had 1050 ti it would be a little better, but they arent recommended for mining unless if you only want to try it for the fun of it before investing further.

Gtx 1050 are so cheap so if I bought maybe 5 or 10 would I yield a lot from it?

I have 8 pcs 1060 and getting total ol 185 mh on ethereum mining.
I have a watchdog script and its running %99.9 uptime.
1060 has a nice price/roi ratio for me.

Yes and no.
The 1050 TI's mhs/W ratio is slightly worse than the 1060 so you will have higher electricity bill for the same performance.
The hash/USD ratio of the 1060 3GB and the 1050 TI 4GB is about the same. However, you need more rigs with more fixed hardware costs (MoBos, CPU, RAM module, PSU, HDD/SSD) to get the same performance as a single 1060 rig. Those rigs also consume more power.

~$1000 = 049 mhs 2x1060 rig     0.049 mhs/$
~$1200 = 059 mhs 4x1050TI rig. 0.049 mhs/$
~$1600 = 088 mhs 6x1050TI rig. 0.055 mhs/$
~$1650 = 098 mhs 4x1060 rig.    0.059 mhs/$
~$2250 = 147 mhs 6x1060 rig.    0.065 mhs/$
In general,  the mhs/$ ratio is better with 1060, unless you get really cheap 1050 TIs and you have additional hardware just laying around.
So yes, you will get money out of it (as long as you get 1050 TIs), but you would get more out of the 1060. And even more if you went with 480s but they are pretty hard to come by lately for an acceptable price.

You may as well compare with that calculator : https://www.nicehash.com/profitability-calculator

Your best bet is 1060 6 go for future resale value and 480.

Ok I've been procrastining enough already.

Give me one hour from now, maybe two.

I'll test some EVGA 1060 6 go with 9 go of memory clock instead of the usual 6 go.

I'll make some dual mining using claymore, dual mining DCR.

I'll do it for around 30 minute. I'll post stock specs, then I'll do with overclock specs.

After a stable 30 minutes of overclocked mining, I'll share the result here. Numbers will prove by itself if it's best to spend the 30-40$ CAD more to get the +3 go at memory clock.

I'm currently mining Digibyte, via myriad groestl, and they give me the best hashrates compared to my other 1060s 6 go, but not enough to justify to buy a bit higher since than other ones. I have currently 5 of them, and waiting my 6th one next week to complete one of my rig.

Stay tuned.

So I made some test with dual mining Eth-DCR with my 5 x 1060 6 go EVGA with 9 ghz of memory instead of the usual 6 ghz.

I think there is something wrong with either my drivers or whatever, even if they are all Samsung, because I don't think I have good hashrates. I don't really care since I'm mining DGB only, and probably BTG in a week.

You may look at the pictures, everything is there. I didn't touch at intensity via bat files though.

-----------------

My mining rig setup ( old picture, I have a bit more gpus as of today )




The cards I've tested ( All samsung ) :



Stock mining ( You may have to zoom ) :

Overclocked Mining ( Can't go higher than 875 memory clock, was not patient enough to find the sweetspot ) :  


There you go, that's all for the EVGA 1060 FTW2+. I'm going back to dgb mining until now.




Stock mining : 17 MH/s for ETH and  170 MH/s DCR per card. Around 63 deg Celcius

Overclocked mining : 58-59C, 20.65 MH/s for ETH and 206 MH/S for DCR. 67% Power limit.

Decent hashrate for low electricity consumption. Since they all have samsung memories, I think they worth the shot.

If you ask me if I will buy more of these cards : Yes

P4ndoraBox: you could probably earn more by sticking to ETH alone. With that type of card you could reach 24MH/s for ETH instead of 20, it's probably worth more than the other currencies you're going to mine.

Well... I'm comparing a bit with whattomine.com. I find it rather strange it says that DGB earning is only around 0.0018 btc / day for 13x1060, and when I do my own calc, I get around 0.00325 btc. ( In a situation I would sell daily, but I'm mining for long term )

Not sure if it's the same about single mining ETH. I could try a bit but I don't know, I'm quite confortable with DGB numbers that are accumulating in my wallet.

I'm wondering the same.

it's because the impact on performance is less important than memory clock and by lowering core clock you need less power and less heat. It's all a question of trying out. I see that many people achieve a better result with negative core clocks. Same for me, cards crashes faster when using positive core clocks.
