Hi guys, I have a 7x card 1070 rig which has been rock solid for 99% of 2 weeks.

On two occasions it seems to have lost internet connection  ( it is hard wired to the router / not wifi )

Killing the session and restarting it does not solve the issue however turning off the rig and resetting does fix the issue.

Has anyone else experienced a similar issue or seen this with certain settings?

When the console says that internet connection has been lost it seems to be correct as opening a fresh web page says the same thing.

Just weird that resetting the rig through power off/on fixes the issue, cheers!!

Hello miners...

First things first, I would like to thank 'fullzero' (infact hero Cheesy) for this fantastic job, can't thank him enough.

I've built my first RIG very recently, I would like to find the best OC settings and pool settings to get the best out of it, with the help of miners expertise.

I was getting really good speed on windows but for some reason it doesn't allow me run more than 3 GPU's (it was a trial version), but it was doing 20 MH per card from stock with claymore dual mining.

I had to switch back to Ubuntu but  the trouble is I'm only getting 18 MH on an average per card, I'm using claymore dual (ETC + PASC) with CUDA 8.x nvidia driver - 375.66, pulling 1044 watts from wall.
Temperatures : 65 - 73 C
Fans on Auto : 39 - 43

My config -

ASUS DUAL GTX 1060 - 8 GPU's
ASUS Z270P
8 GB RAM
2 x EVGA G2 750 Watts PSU units
8 x V6 Risers
120 GB SSD

Fellow miners using same cards, please share your Core, memory OC + fan + power settings. I would also like to know how to add multiple pools to the nvOC oneBash file.

Would also welcome suggestions about best combination cryptos for better ROI with my equipment.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
damNmad

So I had the rig working with one MSI gtx 1080 connected to the x16 slot, when I connect a riser to the x16 slots (any of them) the card fans are working but the card won't be recognised by the operating system, replaced riser and still, doesn't work. The card is working of I put it in the x16 slot.

My mobo is an Asrock H81 pro btc r2.0 PSU is a Corsair Rx 750, in using a powered v3 riser, both molex on mobo are connected to same PSU as the riser and GPUs , on bios I have the pcie card as default, tried gen1 and gen2 everytime clearing CMOS after any plug, no way it is recognised by the pc. Anyone had same issue?

Hey,

Just wondering how many CPU threads you guys are using to mine monero without causing impact to GPU mining operations? Currently have mine set at 2 but was thinking it can probably do 3 using G4560.

Thanks

It depends on what Client you are using to GPU mine.  EWBF is very light on the CPU so you could probably do 3 threads without noticing a difference in the GPU hashrate. 

If you are using Claymore to mine a Ethash COIN; I wouldn't use more than 2: if dual mining with Claymore I wouldn't use more than 1. 

With a weaker CPU I wouldn't cpu mine at all while dual mining with Claymore.

OK thanks for the advice, i'll apply as necessary.

One more thing, is it just me or do the 1070s refuse to draw more than 150W power even when the power limit is increased? Obviously it works upping the powerlimit in windows but it doesnt seem to work for me in linux, only on the reduction.

Cheers

Do any of you have idea why 6x Asus 1060 3GB make around 65MH/s on ETH? (65.529 MH/s, 25/0/0 (0.00%): 9.642+9.760+12.370+13.154+8.689+11.911 MH/s)

Gigabyte Z270 Gaming K3, 8GB, Pentium G4400

The same configuration on SMOS makes around 19MH per card.

Thanks

I just got around to test v16.

Same error messages like below.

Getting infinite loop.

LCD connected to mobo graphics (like always in v15 and BIOS set to on board graphics not PCI)

Will test on PCI graphics later thi PM - hopefully no more infinite loops - will post results later.

Much better boot-up speed, this time can use USB3 port fully compatible with build?

I just added 5 more 20A circuits in my warehouse - fun times begins!

I can't seem to get v16 to work on tb-250.

It boots up then terminal pops up and says:

Quote
dos2unix: converting file /media/m1/1263-A96E/onebash to unix format

xorg problem detected

restarting xorg

rebooting in 5

Have tried different USB's and also booting with only one card but still have the same problem.

Anyone know what the problem might be?

Have you waited for the second boot?

If you are using one GPU it is expected that oneBash will need to rebuild the xorg file and reboot before OC will work as intended.

It should work without rebooting on the second boot; unless you have connected the monitor directly to the motherboard (always connect a monitor to the primary GPU).

I have had one member report that their rig is caught in an infinite loop of reboots; so I would like to know if this is happening to you as well.



Full Zero was right. If you change your primary display to PCI and plug your monitor into your primary card it will boot.

The other great thing is my clocks are working with v16...my 1070's have gone from 390MH to 430 MH Cheesy

Thanks full zero!!

Thought I would give an update. After adjusting the power settings and doing some specific troubleshooting I have gotten the rig stable for 24 hours.

I took fullzero and Maxximus007 suggestions on the power settings and give it a bit more with more modest OC. It seems to have resolved the issue, as well I have found that one of the cards was not liking bigger OC's while the other 5 worked fine.

This was the outcome.
ETH - Total Speed: 180.068 Mh/s, Total Shares: 2000, Rejected: 0, Time: 15:48
ETH: GPU0 30.198 Mh/s, GPU1 30.240 Mh/s, GPU2 30.186 Mh/s, GPU3 29.500 Mh/s, GPU4 30.086 Mh/s, GPU5 29.857 Mh/s
SC - Total Speed: 1200.451 Mh/s, Total Shares: 429, Rejected: 0
SC: GPU0 201.322 Mh/s, GPU1 201.599 Mh/s, GPU2 201.240 Mh/s, GPU3 196.667 Mh/s, GPU4 200.575 Mh/s, GPU5 199.048 Mh/s
GPU0 t=62C fan=75%, GPU1 t=48C fan=75%, GPU2 t=64C fan=75%, GPU3 t=61C fan=75%, GPU4 t=60C fan=75%, GPU5 t=49C fan=75%

As for the settings, I have the following settings:
5 cards:
Overclock
cc 100
mc 1275
Powerlimit: 125 watts
1 card:
cc -100
mc 1225
Powerlimit: 120 watts
(this card does not like OC had to tweak it some for it to not cause instability within the rig)

Total watts from the wall: 866/867

I am still taking fullzero advice and adding 4 GB more of RAM it will be here in the next few days.

Maxximus007 or fullzero if you have a BTC,ETH address I would like to send you a small thank you for the help on troubleshooting.

Hello, I´m trying to dual mine ETH-DECRED with pool suprnova.cc, but don´t know how to setup

DCR_WORKER="rig6"
DCR_ADDRESS=""
DCR_POOL="stratum+tcp://dcr.suprnova.cc:3252 "

anyone could help me with it?

for DCR_ADDRESS=""

use your supernova login; so if your login was: Tasbi and your workername was rig6 (note you actually have to make workers at suprnova)

then you would use:

DCR_WORKER="rig6"
DCR_ADDRESS="Tasbi"
DCR_POOL="stratum+tcp://dcr.suprnova.cc:3252 "

Ok thanks for your help, what about the password???
I have very stable rigs with nvoc... I really appreciate your effort and time


Set the password to:

x

on the suprnova site; this is what the implementation is set to use.

In version15 I added --log to the startup of EWBF and it would output the logfile. I tried it in version16 but cant seem to find the logs. Even a ps -ef | miner shows the following output snippet :

Code:
--pass d=256 --log --port 4048

Where can I find the log output of EWBF miner now? I tail the file in my ssh session to see of my rig is running healthy. Now I dont have means to see the status of my rig.

I have set up a 9 gpu system with nvOC 16 and here's my experience.

nvOS is stellar. Fullzero has put something really special together here. Hats off to you. I have used windows builds with Claymore as well as other linux os such as PIMP.  This is by far the best experience I have has so far.

nvOS is as easy as setting up in windows but with the advantage of linux as well as being able to control everything including over clocking with a bash script file that's as easy as filling in a form.

Currently this 9 gpu rig is hashing ETH and DCR using the suprvova pools. I have found v16 with claymore 9.5 to be far superior to the previous version and i think it will be our goto for larger deployment for the time being.

Right now it hashes at around 183 Mh/s.  Here's the build:

1x Motherboard Asus z270 K http://amzn. to/2tIqN86 x1
1x Celeron CPU http://amzn. to/2u2GVkk x1
1x Memory x1 http://amzn. to/2rPPjme x1
2x PSU http://amzn. to/2rPKeKQ x2
1x USB Drive http://amzn. to/2s9HB5W x1
2x m2 pcie adapter http://amzn. to/2rPKqty x2
3x pcie riser http://amzn. to/2tIwPFA x3
9x GPUs http://amzn. to/2rPX1Ni x9
1x power switch http://amzn. to/2tIomCo x1
1x Wooden frame http://amzn. to/2s4ZsQn x1

around $3300 with tax

Here is a pic.


Here are some nvOC wallpapers for your rigs.
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B0lx4O21EyI3eEFHcG8tWEhIU0k?usp=sharing

During setup i encountered numerous errors, all of which were remedied.  I went with 2 psus, not sure if its better in teh long run but splitting 1100 watts over two 850s seem to be decent for efficiency.  I have built 7 of these now and a few with the z270A version using 8 GPUS.  Both are good.  I have created this system as the model for our small mining farm in California, so i will continue to feedback on these builds as I go.

Bios settings were very important.  As was bios version.

Damaged risers and a bum gpu were also headaches during set up so be on the lookout for that.  Once you have the bio settings right and the hardware actually works it really is as simple as flashing the drive, plugging it in and turning it on.  If anyone wants the bios settings PM me but its here in the thread and is mostly about setting all pcie settings to gen2, using bios 0801 and not flashing the newer 0906.  Which was the opposite to PIMP which did not seem to work for me on the older bios.

One last thing, with these gpus I set the OC to

__CORE_OVERCLOCK=150
MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=825

and it seems to be running stable with no ETH rejections and about 1 in 200 DCR rejections. temps at 80 fans at 65% -dcri 50 and pulling about 1050 watts.

I built two of these for a friend and two for my sister.

Both are pointing at nice hash. On is here https://new.nicehash.com/miner/1GCSdasYQ3wWp8zAHHvHyao83aoyA6AFVM - currently its waiting on pcie m2 adapters to get all 9 cards going. They will recoup their investment in 3-4 months and their minds have been opened to the new world of block chains, contracts and decentralized crypto currency.

Thanks fullzero this is a brilliant project.

I'm glad you like nvOC  Smiley

I like your frame:

the labeling + super cost effective:  all while maintaining functionality  Grin

I have made similar frames in the past.  The best part about this type of frame is the materials should be locally available.

I am not a fan of shorted weblinks: other than when using twitter: I see no reason to use them.  Please use normal links in the future.

I will add a link to your wallpapers to the OP.  Wink

Ubuntu ubdates may be causing this:  you can disable them by:

clicking the top left ubuntu button:

typing: u

then selecting:

Software and Updates

clicking the Updates tab

then unselecting everything but security updates (these are always small; and a good idea to keep on)




So I had the rig working with one MSI gtx 1080 connected to the x16 slot, when I connect a riser to the x16 slots (any of them) the card fans are working but the card won't be recognised by the operating system, replaced riser and still, doesn't work.

Anyone had same issue?

I think your risers might be the problem; I highly recommend using the newest PCI 6 pin powered risers (as they are almost perfect, almost all of them work without issue).

I understand it is very hard to find these at the moment; I'm sure production has already ramped up and there will be plenty again soon.  I expect GPUs will soon be the hardest part to source; thanks to the z270 chipset working well for mining.



Hey,

You cannot exceed the top limit for each card.  If you do nothing will be applied.

to find each cards limit you can enter:

Code:
sudo nvidia-smi -pl 400

in the guake terminal

no card should allow a 400 watt powerlimit; so smi should output the bottom and top limits for each card. 

Pick the top limit and run

Code:
sudo nvidia-smi -pl toplimit

to set the cards to max

I would use caution when using max powerdraw; generally slightly above tdp power will make a difference; but max will make the card unstable and could potentially damage it if your ambient is high, your cables are loose, or your PSU is not high end.




Do any of you have idea why 6x Asus 1060 3GB make around 65MH/s on ETH? (65.529 MH/s, 25/0/0 (0.00%): 9.642+9.760+12.370+13.154+8.689+11.911 MH/s)

Gigabyte Z270 Gaming K3, 8GB, Pentium G4400

The same configuration on SMOS makes around 19MH per card.

Thanks

I don't know what settings your are using; but there is something wrong based on your hashrates.

I would try Tasbi's settings:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19703709#msg19703709






In version15 I added --log to the startup of EWBF and it would output the logfile. I tried it in version16 but cant seem to find the logs. Even a ps -ef | miner shows the following output snippet :

Code:
--pass d=256 --log --port 4048

Where can I find the log output of EWBF miner now? I tail the file in my ssh session to see of my rig is running healthy. Now I dont have means to see the status of my rig.

I removed the logging from the default oneBash as it was very slightly decreasing stability; you can add it by appending:

Code:
--log

to the end of your workername

for example with the default workername I would change it from

Code:
ZEC_WORKER="nvOC"

to:

Code:
ZEC_WORKER="nvOC --log"

to add logging.




Let me know if you think it is slowing down the ZEC hashrate at all; in my tests it appeared to have no impact on simultaneous Equihash mining: but more data makes us better informed.  Smiley
I now have 2 going. 

a i5 6400t on a biostar z170 2 threads  runs fine.  better cpu so makes sense

 a i3 6100t on a gigabyte b250m     2 threads crash  one thread worked

Good to know.  The t series have very low powerdraw overall.

now running 3 rigs
 
2x 1080ti   gigabyte b250m mobo

2x 1080ti   biostar z170 mobo

3x 1080ti   biostar z170 mobo


I will now try a 4 card  1070 biostar z170 mobo

Let me know how it goes  Smiley

Will test on PCI graphics later thi PM - hopefully no more infinite loops - will post results later.

Much better boot-up speed, this time can use USB3 port fully compatible with build?

I just added 5 more 20A circuits in my warehouse - fun times begins!

I can't seem to get v16 to work on tb-250.

It boots up then terminal pops up and says:

Full Zero was right. If you change your primary display to PCI and plug your monitor into your primary card it will boot.

(this card does not like OC had to tweak it some for it to not cause instability within the rig)

Total watts from the wall: 866/867

I am still taking fullzero advice and adding 4 GB more of RAM it will be here in the next few days.

Maxximus007 or fullzero if you have a BTC,ETH address I would like to send you a small thank you for the help on troubleshooting.


These results are very good:  Your getting typical ETH (single mining hashrates) while dualmining.  Smiley

Let me know if you think the additional ram makes a difference.

Let me begin by joining the chorus of miners praising this effort.  I spent a week working towards the same goal before finding this thread.  I think you've probably saved me a month of evenings developing something similar.  Sending some hashes your way as I test!

I'm using an msi z170a m5 with 4 Asus GTX 1060 6G GPUs on an 850w PSU.  I'm also running a single gtx 1060 on a muuuuch older board Asus p5n-d (yes that old) and nvOC still works like a charm.

One thing I've noticed with nvOC versus my own Linux install is that I can't seem to get the same hashrate in nvOC.  Even if I set the pl to 140 for the card, push memory all the way to 2000 and the GPU clock offset to 130, I can't break 21 MHS in nvOC.  Comparatively, if I just load Ubuntu 16.04 with xorg, gnome and latest drivers with Claymore dual mining ETH and SC, I can sustain 23 MHS for days.  Same if I put a card on my Win10 box and use MSI Afterburner to contro OC there.  I've tried throwing configurations at my nvOC node manually with nvidia-settings -a and it just doesn't seem to get beyond 20 MHS.  I can open the nvidia control panel and verify all the settings took.  The only difference I can find so far between nvOC and my own build is that I was still using 375.66 version of the driver and nvOC appears to be using 378.13.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestion of what else I could try?  I'd love to switch all my gear to this but right now I'm getting better hash rates out of a 1060 in win10 and 1060s on Ubuntu not using nvOC.  And across multiple 8 GPU rigs, the delta adds up.

Thanks!

From most data sets you will get slighly better hashrate from Windows still, even some 1070's I have seen pushing 31-33 while on Ubuntu I have only gotten 29-31. The biggest advantage though I will say is stability, Ubuntu has shown more constant and stable hashrate by far then any Windows PC (this is beyond the Win 10 auto update on home edition)

Got this error as well once, it was from a bad format of the USB and therefore was not bootable. Try re-imaging the flash drive using HDDRawcopy.

When mining Ethash going nuts with power is not the answer.  Most of the time it will result with a perhaps marginally better hashrate, but significant instability.

I would recommend trying:

-100cc
+1100mc
powerlimit 110

higher mc might do better with your specific cards; I don't have any ASUS 1060s so I don't have a reference.

I would start with those settings and bump up the mc every 5 mins or so and test the results.

Some cards do better with different drivers.  I choose the 378 driver based mainly on testing 1070s (as they are the best $/hash GPUs when normally priced / available)  and it also fully supports 1080tis.

I have already had another member request a 375 driver version; for maxwell cards (it is opt for them) so eventually I will make a build with it as well.

Nexillus is correct in that it is usually possible to get sightly higher hashrates in Windows; although I always had to use the OC after building the DAG trick to do this: but in general I believe it is because Claymore spends more time Optimizing for windows. (we need to change this)

Agreed on Windows vs Linux mining.  I've observed greater stability in Linux.  However, comparing a fresh Ubuntu install to nvOC, I still observe a 3+ MHS difference per card per node.  Using nvOC is like taking a card out of every one of my nodes.  I'm continuing to investigate, b/c this is a great offering.  Only other things I've noticed so far: 1) the xorg.conf on both my test machines lists the cards as 1050s instead of 1060s.  Also, my multi GPU test node seems to have a problem with any windows on the console showing up off monitor.  My working hypothesis is that it's b/c I plugged in a DVI monitor rather than HDMI but that seems pretty thin to me.  Anyone else run into that issue?  Google searches so far have not been fruitful.

Nvidia is weird; I did use a 1080p hdmi monitor when building nvOC, so it is possible that it freaks out with DVI.  Yes, I know HDMI is essentially; DVI + digital audio.  However, there are about 14 different types of DVI; they are not all interpreted the same as HDMI on linux (primarily if they are analog DVI).

The GPU title is meaningless in any systemic capacity in the xorg.conf; so its not a problem that it doesn't list 1060s there.

Different drivers will have different OPT clocks; I would try my suggested clocks and mc bumping: if you still don't get comparable hashrates then I would use whatever OS gives you the best results. 

I will make a 375 driver version eventually (it is on the list); but I am trying to focus first on helping users resolve problems, then with implementing the most requested improvements first.

I just added a newest oneBash to the OP.

it adds:

# If you are using a slow USB Key
Code:
SLOW_USB_KEY_MODE="NO"
          # YES NO

which should solve problems with fanspeed / powerlimit not implementing for some members with v0016.

set:
Code:
SLOW_USB_KEY_MODE="YES" 
 

and it will take longer to start the mining process, but it should ensure proper initialization.


MONA is added as a COIN selection



the ccminer fix:
Code:
sudo ldconfig /usr/local/cuda/lib64

is added to oneBash to resolve this potential problem with v0016.


Let me know if there is a problem with any of these 3 changes.


Also last night I uploaded the initial release of rxOC (the amd version of this OS)  There is a link to it in my signature.

xleejohnx came up with the name: which I thought was better than amdOC as it is more accurate.
