Ok thanks for explaining. My mobo has:
-2x PCI-e 3.0 x1
-PCI-e 3.0 x4
-PCI-e 3.0 x16

How many 1080Ti can I connect?


Anyone?

One on every PCI slot? Won't the speed difference be a problem?

Not for mining.

You can also adjust PCI-E lanes in most BIOSes

Did I help you? If yes, hit me up with some Eth!

Do you guys only lowering the TDP for optimal efficiency? Or do you actually change the voltage? If so, how?

My settings now are:

TDP: 75%

Core: +130

Memory: +100

Fan speed: 70

Temperature is between 55-65 for 3 cards mining ZEC, 730-750 sol.

Not sure how to messaure the watt usage since the miner I use don't show it.

I'm getting some disappointing hash rates, can anyone guess why? I'm using this miner - https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer - on Linux. With lyra2v2, I was getting 45 mhash with an intensity of 19, which seemed OK, but my system crashes after 2-3 hours of mining like this. Now mining with -i at 15, my mhash drops to 25. edit: setting -i to 18 seems to be going steady @ 50% fan/83c/190-220W/85%-90% volatile GPU-util = 50 MH/s. Better, but not $10/day better.

I tried skein, got about 340-345 mhash/s. still on the low end I think. What can I do? I've only ever overclocked on Windows before. And oh the coil whine on lyra...

 For skein, you want the alexis78 version of ccminer - I was seeing ballpark 500ish mhash/s on GTX 1070s as I recall (might have been on a 1080 though) - the ti should be a fair bit faster.

 83c is VERY HIGH for a 24/7 mining GPU (The old R9 Hawaii GPUs could handle that high a temp reliably, little else can), and your fan setting is very low - 50% on a MINING card is going to overheat and cause issues unless you're in a VERY COLD environment.
 Kick that fan up to at least 80%, or better yet put a fan profile into Afterburner that's all-in by 80C.

 $10/day for one card is probably dead, too many folks have jumped in over the last couple months with WAY too many cards + coins have had a drop the last week and change.
 It might come back, it might not, but it would take a large price jump on one of the major GPU mineable coins to bounce it back up to that level for more than a day or two.




Yeah, that's what I was thinking. It's more like 12/7 use. Was able to adjust the fan based on this - http://www.upubuntu.com/2015/05/how-to-controladjust-gpu-fan-speed-for.html

But now the wattage varies between 230-260. Is going over 250 watts semi-regularly OK for the card?

As I recall, the "official" TDP for the Hawaii cards was commonly 300 watts.

 My R9 290 cards have been pulling that much on a 24/7 basis (occasional outages for power failures or moving) for well over a year now.


 *TEMP* is the killer, though higher power tends to lead to higher temp if all other factors are equal.

Hi all,

I'm trying to divesify my rigs as I have 50+ 1060 and 12 RX.
I'm thinking on building some 1080ti's rigs and I wanted some feedback:
What is the hashrate on Skein: 1000Mh/s? How much a day are you guys making on 1 card: is 16$/day still a thing?
Are you guys mining anything other than Skein?

Thanks

16$/day on Skein is a dream. I'm trying ZEC from nanopool right now, its making about 5$ day with 1 1080ti, DGB is no longer a best option to 80ti when pass a treshold of 0.00000600BTC, above this we keep going on SKEIN. Now we can see a increase of DGB on market, but nothing so truthfull as ZEC, they have a stable price wich is very nice for us, making 5$ a day and have a warranty of high or medium price in comparison of BTC.
Now you must make a choice, start a bet on DGB (and pray to not fell to much untill you withdraw) or keep on ZEC and reduce your profit to keep your balance safe.

Can anyone recommend some good risers . I have several Ti 1080 and my motherboard can only handle 2, i want to add 2 more
I was thinking of this

https://www.amazon.com/6-Pack-PCI-E-Powered-Adapter-Extension/dp/B01N3UVJHM/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1495977463&sr=1-2&keywords=USb+3.0+riser&linkCode=sl1&tag=mylifegadgets-20&linkId=afdaa25f5896e84ca1440e63528d3407

but the reviews are poor. Are there any other risers? And since my power supply is 1000 watts is that all i need?

So guys, we still haven't decided what is currently the most profitable coin and algorithm for 1080Ti? Currently my setup looks like this:

miner: EWBF 0.3.4b,
mining algorithm: equihash,
average speed (1 card): 700-720 sol/s,
pool: equihash nicehash

My average profitability with EWBF miner with one 1080Ti is: 0,0020 BTC/day (reading taken from nicehash website), which translates to 5$/day. Seems kinda low to me...

I still haven't decided if it's more profitable to mine ZEC directly, deposit it to poloniex, trade it for BTC and then withdraw it back to bitcoin wallet. There is 0,15/0,25% sell fee on poloniex if you want to exchange ZEC for BTC and 0,01 % withdraw fee, if you want to withdraw BTC from your poloniex account to your BTC hardware wallet. So 0,26% fee is the highest fee you're going to pay if you trade your ZEC to BTC and then withdraw it to your BTC wallet on poloniex. Of course that is if you mine on pool without fee (like slush pool) and also excluding 2% dev fee for EWBF miner.

On the other hand nicehash has a total fee of about 4,16% (in my case). On pay day I had 0,0408828 BTC and payment fee was 0,00163531 BTC, so in the end I received 0,03924749 BTC to my bitcoin wallet, which translates to 4,16% payment fee. In case you are wondering 0,00163531 BTC is 4,1$, so I have to mine for nearly one day a week (with one card) just to pay for payment fee on nicehash. But what makes nicehash special is no worries about transferring coins between wallets, trading them and then withdrawing them back to your BTC wallet.

Your thoughts?

Do you guys only lowering the TDP for optimal efficiency? Or do you actually change the voltage? If so, how?

My settings now are:

TDP: 75%

Core: +130

Memory: +100

Fan speed: 70

Temperature is between 55-65 for 3 cards mining ZEC, 730-750 sol.

Not sure how to messaure the watt usage since the miner I use don't show it.
Lowering the power target does reduce the voltage.

I run 60-70% power target which is 150/175w. Anything more than that you are using a lot more power and heat for a small amount of hashing power.

For me I was running 60% power target 150w and doing 640 sol. @ 730-750 sol I bet you are pulling in 300w. Double the power for just 100 sol.

Anyone expert enough to put in a formula or calculation on taking in the future estimated difficulty to meassuare if it is worthwhile to pay double the electricity in exchage of lesser difficulty for maybe higher zcash output?
Will the extra 100 sol pays off when factor in next three to six month opportunity cost?

What i think right now is, let's think of a coin that's gonna make a boom after the fork. Pick a coin then mine it for a month before the fork, hardware wallet it. Then if you dont want to play the game just use nicehash? Let's forget about the math right now for the upcoming fork. what'd you think?

I didn't say it would be more or less profitable I just stated facts. Obviously make your own choice whether you believe the extra sols would be worth more electricity.

if you dont need to take profits from mining right away then i think its good to mine for speculation's sake ie aim for much larger potential returns by mining smaller cap coins such as hush, zencash, vert which have way more room to grow 10-100x in 1-2 years compared to eth or zec.

It's always easier to reach a market cap thats been previously hit by another coin compared to an unprecedented one.  And even if a big coin like ETH grows 10x by next year that rising tide will bring even bigger returns to the smaller cap coins provided they stay in the game that long, which i think is very likely considering the immediate mining profits of small coins are on par or even better than bigger coins.

i just think youre leaving a ton of potential gains on the table by mining larger coins where you make fractions of a coin every day. Mining is worth it when you mine 1000 bitcoins before it was worth anything and wait for it to boom. The great news is this is happening now with other coins frequently. But only if you play that game will you profit from it!

For 3 cards you are getting 730-750 sol? each or altogether?

I'm currently at 1873 mhz core , 5103 mem , 95% tdp, and 72C speed is 703.

I hope you know just because you have the core clock +400 doesn't mean it'll run at additional 400 core clock just because you have it there. You need to have a higher tdp as well otherwise it'll run at lower frequency because power isn't going in.

So everyone who posts here with +190 or what not and then 75% tdp doesn't mean they are running at that +190.

I'll give an example. I had mine at +205 and power at 100% tdp and it never went over 1900 mhz but as soon as I raised it to 120% tdp I started hitting 2037-2073 mhz, but card started staying at 77-78C

Now I'm mining at 1847-1860 mhz with 95% tdp and temp is at 72C , fan at 75% speed 690-700 sol

What about MonaCoin, Vertcoin or LBRY? Currently mining these three coins is more profitable than mining ZEC (according to whattomine) and if one of them blows up, then you have hit a goldmine.

I learned later about Nicehash that transferring to external wallet won't be done until balance reaches 0.01 -so my $20 is going down the drain that I mined with them because I had the address of external wallet and now it won't transfer fund into internal wallet either.

I've stopped using nicehash altogether now because of this very thing and add to it, that now a day it shows avg/day $4-5 lol
I mine Zec now, and it goes to Poloneix. I have money, so just collecting and fingers crossed for the day it blows up lol.
I also have DGB in the same account waiting for that to blow upwards as well haha
