Hello all. I have a computer with 4x Geforce 1080 that I used for work purposes with CUDA. I'd like to mine when it isn't doing anything. I don't pay for electricity so I'd like to know the top 5 cryto coin to mine, rank from most profitable to least on a Geforce 1080. Thanks

I'm pretty sure Ethereum is the most profitable right now.
awesome rig, should do well mining for ETH.

Only in Linux it would seem to make sense:

I do not think that gtx 1080 is a good choice for mining because it is very expensive and you will cost a lot of money to build a good mining place with gtx 1080. more than $800 for 1 gtx 1080 is not worth for mining

How much you are getting now ? I saw nubers like 3.5$ per day on card. Is that true ?
and it takes 100W so you ned to count power in nubers too.
How your earnings looks ?

1080 does not cost 800. They're much cheaper than that. If that was my rig if be mining zclassic.

I understand that AMD is superior when it comes to mining. My post is that I already have a rig of 4xGeforce 1080 on an Asus P10WS Xeon board for work [running CUDA apps]. I just want it to do something and not sit idle with all the computational power haha.

I tried mining ethereum on my 1080, and it's only hashing 2.5MH. Sad

Between ZCash and Monero, which would would be better for my 4x Geforce 1080?

Any equihash or groestel coin rocks on the 1080, should be close to $20/24hrs uptime.

Blimey that's lower than I'd expect - was getting 2.1MH/s on my 970. Upgrading to a 1070 this week so by that token (see what I did there?) I should get 2.3MH/s, which is a crap increase. Will see.

Zcash, Zclassic or Zen. I get 585 Sol/s @ 3.30 Sol/W mining Zclassic on a single 1080 GTX.

Would you kindly share gpu brand/model, mem/ gpu clocks, miner software and pool? Thanks.

you are wrong my friedn the 1080 and the 1080ti are very good at mining now, they earn a lot mining skein lbry or zcash, and have not bad consumption compared to little brother 1070, they are expensive yes but the roi is fast enough

Hi, I can currently get a 1080 for 500usd brand new. Which I am planning on building a 7 gpu rig with them. what OS/miner should i use? I was initialy planning on using simplemining but for maximum profitability I should be mining Skein which isn't in there. So what should i mine?

P.S. I was thinking initially of getting 7 1070 but for 70usd and you get a 1080 which will have a higher resale value... So i am not really sure which path i should walk.

If you are looking strictly at Ethereum mining then go with the 1070's.  All other mining I would go with the 1080's as you get better hashrate for about a better cost ratio and the resale will likely be much higher.

I'm currently running 7-1080's and 1 1080Ti and make on average about .023 BTC per day doing auto-exchange at Zpool either with their built in multialgo or using Multipoolminer.  You might be able to do better on specific coins, but only if you are willing to deal with trading them on the exchange yourself.  Life for example when Digibyte spiked I was pulling in about $120/day for all my rigs, but that was only if I dumped the coins at the high point.   You have to decide if you're taking your profits today or holding the coins you mine until the time is right for them.

Here is example hashrates for a 1080:  This is a single 1080 Zotac AMP edition

https://i.imgur.com/hwuXWIT.png

This is my 5 - 1080 rig - 2 Zotac Amp Extreme Edition, 2 ROG Strix, and an EVGA 1080

https://i.imgur.com/ghunKhp.png

There is quite a bit of variability in what hash rates you'll get out of each cards including power draw.  I notice those Zotac Amp Extreme Edition pull about 15% more hash, but also consume like 50W more in power.  The 1080Ti gives roughly about 40% more hashrate for about 25% more power consumption and 30-50% more cost. You have to decide if that is worth it to you.

Pure ethereum mining I'm seeing roughly like 20-25Mh per 1080 usually with no overclocking and setting a Power limit of 80%.  Setting power limit to 100% gives like 3% more hash, but consumes like 20% more power.

Damn this is perfect and exactly what i was looking for thank you so much XD
Can you elaborate more? As to what OS and miner you use to mine with those 1080?
Also i wasn't planning on mining ethereum but more like you said a multi algorithm on zpool or something.

Also i wasn't planning on mining ethereum but more like you said a multi algorithm on zpool or something.


Those benchmark outputs are from Aaronsace's MultiPoolminer.  The most recent commits to Github have the stuff to run on zpool, but not without some modifications as to what algorithms you want each of the miners to launch.  You can see in the picture on the left it lists which miner is associated with which algorithm and the hashrate that I'm seeing from it. 
https://github.com/aaronsace/MultiPoolMiner/releases

I used to say the easiest way would be to use the batch script method that Nemo's Miner pack offered, but he's taken it down and replaced it with a zpool version of Multipoolminer.
Here is a link to his old pack that includes the miners:
https://mega.nz/d772a928-82f0-4a77-a7e2-bcc334843571

Not sure how long that will last though.  Otherwise the easiest by far is just download nichhashminer and use that since it is set it and forget it.  Although my experience is you lose about 25% of your potential earnings compared to other methods.  I prefer zpool over multimininghub at this point only because it seems like MHP penalizes you quite a bit for hopping around on the algos.

Hi, i also have 3 gtx 1080 founders edition and i have some questions:
1: all 3 gpu's are currently running at temperature 82 c and they make about 9$ per day, Is the temperature 82 ok ?
2: if i keep them running 24h, aprox how long will they last ?
3: does overclocking has effect on how long the card will last ?
Thank you for help

82c is pretty high. I would recommend undervolting to lower that to 70c at least. 60c-65c is best.
At 82c the cards will last a year maybe.
