Ran sniffdog miner for a week. (Give or take 8-9 hours) Made around 0.00413077 BTC - I have 1x1080ti currently. lol this is horrible.

I am not saying the miner is bad or card is useless just saying- just mining whatever is bumped up in sky doesn't mean you are being efficient.

I'm sticking with Mining DGB and ZEC and then switching them when they go up 20-30% -so far with that tactic I've maintained 6-8$ a day.


Also, I rather not compare things into USD because that's a losing game lol

Which pools did you use?

Flypool /nano pool for -ZEC

the blockfactory for DGB -since I just cannot seem to configure Supernova. I'm a noob.
With sniffdog it's automatic- MPH , hasrefinery, zpool
I meant with sniffdog

Ok, I bought MSI Gtx 1080Ti Seahawk X for 900 bucks, used one, 2 months old, 2 years 10 months warranty left.

It was cheaper then normal GTX 1080Ti that are new in stores. New ones are like 1050$ lolz.


What clocks do you guys use and which intensity? Right now i have 21.0956 intensity, read somewhere that some guy gets good numbers with it. My power limit is 85%, mem clock is -500 and core clock is +125.

I get 52.5 MH/s with this card.


Any suggestions how to boost this numbers? This is my first Ti so i still need to test things. My other 20x GPU-s are Gtx 1070. Now i slowly upgrade my rigs with Ti's.

Also important question, how do i control my Radiator Fan, how do adjust it on % i want?

I have Asus Rog Strix Z270 Gaming F mobo

Cheers!

MSI afterburner app open that then there is a button on it that looks like a gear lever -click on it and then go to "Fan" tab and then adjust the curve according to your preference.

To all of you who own a 1080ti - can you share your performance mining Vertcoin? Interested in taking a deeper look into it in the future.

Thanks in advance.

That is already active, but isnt that for fan that's on GPU? There are 2 fans. 1 is on GPU, like regular graphic cards, and 1 is on Radiator for cooling liquid. And that one is attached to Motherboard via small cable. Like CPU fan.

Ok I finally managed to put my one 1080ti card rig together at the weekend and kicked it off on SniffDog for simplicity while I look for other potential better options. It's only mining skein and nist5 at the mo even though I put a bigger list of algos in the startsniffin file. It didn't seem to benchmark the others for some reason. Anyway I'm in the game now and trying to talk the wife into letting me buy more cards! ;-)

As I only had one card I just plugged it into the mobo. Is this ok? Heat doesn't seem to be a problem as it's running at about 68 degrees. If I want to add another card I use risers? Anyone got a link to where to get them from? My mobo can support 6 x GPUs and the PSU is a 1200W one so good for another card or two.

Thanks

No problem plugged direct in mobo, but i think the gpu should get power from the same psu than your mainboard! If its there is enough place for air/cooling you could plug more than one Wink

I had 1080ti above a 980 direct on mobo in a closed case, there was basically no clearance between them, air flow sucked and they both overheated. The ti's are quite fat, should use risers if you have more than one or have at least 2-3cm clearance between cards.
Most i've seen the ti draw was 300w, I bet you can run 4-5 ti's on 1200w psu.

Zpool was down for most of Saturday - which meant any algo that attempted to benchmark against zpool will have benchmarked at 0 because it couldn't connect. It happened to me. I had to delete the benchmark files and run the miner again to benchmark properly when zpool came back online

Ideally you want your PSU to only draw around 60-75% of it's power rating. So say around a target of 800w for a 1200w PSU. Normally you'll be pulling around 60-70w before any GPU, so you could probably run 3 Ti's with minimal power restriction fine. But you wouldn't reasonably be able to run 4 in my opinion unless you capped them to about 75% TDP or less.

In Sniffdog is better the 3 pools(Hash, Zpoool, MPH) or is better one (for example to Zpool)?

My settings for 1080 Ti Seahawk X (liquid cooled Ti card) is

i=26,
mem - 500
core +125
power limit 90%

I get around 53.5 Mh/s and card temp is around 58-60 celsius.


What you think? I am still noobish with this Ti cards, dont know what clocks are safe, how is their performance etc etc.


Any suggestions / tips?


And about fan cooling the radiator, i think it's running 100% all the time, as it cant be controled, it's 3 pin fan. It runs on 100% all the time.

3 pools are better than one! Switching is very quick so you lose very little hashing power during the switch.

By the looks of the stats I guess you are mining Signatum? or at least using the skunk algo.
You don't normally need to set the intensity - also 26 seems a little high to me. 24 is usually good, but I've also managed okay in the past with 22.
The best Ti clock settings are usually:

mem -500
core +200
power: 70 - 80%

You lose very little hashing rate by dropping to 80%, so it's definitely worth doing. Also it allows you to run your fan slower - so between that and the lower core temp, your card will last longer.

The hashrate doesn't change whether my memory is set to 0, -500, -1000, -2000, etc so why -500?

Any recommendations for an auto switching pool where you keep the coins you mine rather than having them auto traded you BTC?

@RSO_ - I'll delete the benchmarks and try again later. Thanks

Yeah i am mining Signatum right now. Skunkhash.

Thanks, i will test it out. Btw, i tried 26.5 intensity, it boost up my hashrate with same clocking and power limits. Is maybe higher intensity wearing my card more compared to lower intensity?
Should i keep it lower or it doesnt matter if i use more cuda cores?

Without needing to fiddle much (just need to modify pools) you could use the sniffdogminer with only one pool: https://miningpoolhub.com/. The default setting for the pool is to keep the coins.
Sniffdogminer will be used to change to the most profitable coin. The only drawback is, the pool doesn't have skunkhash algos listed atm. The other algos should be quite fine for 1080ti.

That is correct.  You actually do not want that fan to dip below 100%.  I have 2 EVGA 1080 hybrid cards and I ended up replacing my radiator fans with Noctura ones to cut down on the noise

And about fan cooling the radiator, i think it's running 100% all the time, as it cant be controled, it's 3 pin fan. It runs on 100% all the time.

With my evga 1080ti hybrid water cooled I run these conserverative-moderate settings for my $0.15 cent per watt energy bill

mem -502
core +125 or +150
power limit 70-80 percent.
temperature readings : 53-60 degrees average
Fan speed 60 percent
open air rig with 12" exhaust vent and a box fan blowing on them

I am not maximizing it's efficiency/performance but just trying to get it in the general ball park.  Since I am not home to watch it all the time I think it's more important to have conservative-moderate settings that are reliable 24/7.  Down time can get costly, so i think it's more important to have something reliable and focus your time on good trading skills and not overly focus on just efficiency per watt best clock settings possible.
