Hello All,

I am fresh to the whole alt coin thing, i did bitcoin mining years ago back in 2014 with Antminer S5's for a while tell those devices died and stop functioning. I got out of the mining because they never really lasted long enough to pay themselves off. Since then i have pushed into investing in multiple other ways like real estate and twitch streaming and have been going through a bit of stagnant profit, so i started looking into new ways to invest and i somehow ended back in crypto-currencies.. because of all the issues i had previously with my ASIC miners, i decided to look into GPU/CPU mining because the equipment is more easily accessible from trusted places with warranties and such. So i decided to use my NEW Gaming rig i recently built to mine when i am not using it for Twitch streaming of gaming and i setup with NiceHash Miner v1.7.5.12, because while googling mining with the GTX1080ti, most of the results i came across mentioned NiceHash as a decent miner, but many of those posting trashed talked saying AMD is the king over Nvidia in mining..

So my question is what are other options for me to check into using my Nvidia gear i ALREADY own to mine with to basically learn how all of this stuff works tell i decide to invest into more dedicated mining resources...

My Rig:
ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero
Ryzen 1700 @ 4.0Ghz
2 x MSI Armor GTX 1080ti's (not overclocked)
EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W G3
Phobya 1080mm watercooling external mounted CPU/GPU loop


Current NiceHash numbers over last hour of mining
1288Sol/s on Equihash for a return of $12.96/day
Lyra2REv2 it runs at 121MH/s for a return of $16.02/day

One thing i have noticed since running the NiceHash is that it tends to favor the Equihash a lot more, not sure if there is a way to force it to mine the other instead... $16/day seems far more profit than $13/day.. not sure why it decides Equihash is more profitable... if the program is suppose to switch between the most profitable returns at the time...

equihash is not more profitable, skein is , the 1080ti really shine on skein, and i noticed lately that it shine on JHA algorithm, but it's used only by the new launched sweep coin, amd is good now because ETH increased a lot with the last pump and with dual mining you can earn much with a cheap gpu

If you are earning $16 on Lyra2REv2 go with that - MY Skein numbers for yesterday was $14 for 2 1080TI's so you're earning $60 more a month on Lyra2 than Skein.

You can disable it from switching by going into settings then just uncheck the algo's you don't want it to run; in your case everything except Lyra2

1288 sol/s??? how did you get that? my Zotac Amp Extreme 1080ti only shows with Nicehash with 685 range and with EBW is 705 range.

Amazing!

Have any pointers on accessing the ability to mine Skein? i am not coming up with much in my searches...

To be completely honest with you i have no clue, im just telling you the numbers the program states.. in regards to your numbers.. i have 2 x 1080ti, so if i double your 685 number.. your actually performing more than me.. you would get roughly 1370.... and i have no clue how to mine EBW on this software. to give you that number

Ok now it is clear. Its the sol/s with 2 cards.

Yes the miner sol/s may nit 100% same as NH website actual. It varies.

What are your temps on your GPU, this is the first time i have seen my water temps above 40c on my gaming rig, lastnight i left it on to mine the entire time i slept and its currently mining and my temps on my rig have stabled out at 41c with the house a/c set at 25c.

Also have you found any better mining routes for the GTX1080ti? like is their better coin to mine from your experience?

Hey bud, could you throw me some info on how to mine for Skein, i would like to look into it and see how my actual setup deals with it.. after mining with nicehash for 12+ hours now with it set on the auto change settings, my 12+ hr profitability according to them has leveled out at $14.03/day, my profit levels dip to about half rate at random times i noticed throughout 12hrs of mining..

Also im curious if Skein could be added to the Nicehash program, in the setup instructions it mentions if the Recommended (Stable) list is unable to mine any coins, the miner will default to any custom list or custom list are able to be created for customized mining. If this is true, maybe the Skein can just be added to the rotation to be mined when profitable.. have to read more into this.

You made more  than me mining on Skein then. My last 24hr avg is at $12.46 for 2 1080Ti's @ 900MH/S

Maybe some used rx 470 or 480 has better value if you hv space for more unit.

Good cards I use might as well sped $30 more for 6gb memory https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-ZT-P10600B-10M-Compact-Graphics/dp/B01I5O5AP2

Nice. Can it be any brand? Would you buy any of this?

- Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Turbo 6GB
- Asus GeForce GTX 1060 Dual OC 6GB
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WF OC 6GB
- Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 9Gbps

Yes sure these cards mining performance is near equivalent to the GTX 980

Could you PM me some info on how you got Skein working, it may not be the most profitable way to go about it now, but i want to learn how to mine all the currencies, so in the future i can decide the best route based on the GPU i go with, which will be based on which route is best to mine basically..

I honestly think that the watercooling is really helping with 1080ti's, because i helped one of my good friends out on setting up his 1 solo MSI Armor 1080ti on Nicehash today after showing him the profits i so called made so far.. his is on OEM fans and Nicehash is only running at 571SOL/s @ 84c temps on his rig.. which is only like 80ish% of the rate im getting per card. We bought our GPU's together i bought them with bitcoin on Newegg and he just payed me cash value in return for his.

OP, check the batch link in my sig.  Lots of info and resources to get you going with lots of options.

Theres also a link to the original batch thread with lots more info and stuffs.

If you need any assistance past that getting started, just drop me a PM.   Should be relatively painless though.

I used to be on Lyra2v2 24/7... but the block difficulty on MONA and Vert... were just too damned long, and payouts were pretty inconsistent.  I felt the "bad days" a lot more than I do on skein.

Honestly based on my lack of knowledge and just going off experience im seeing.. i would have to say no... because i have my pair of 1080ti's going on Nicehash and according to MSI Afterburner im using between 10-11GB of RAM on the GPU's with nothing else running on the PC... so going with something like 3GB, im assuming it would run super hot on VRAM, because its having to use 100% of the 3GB and constantly shuffling things around due to lack of space or it may just throttle your return on mining, because you dont have enough VRAM to utilize mining at 100% rate fully.. Honest i dont know for sure, but just telling you my results based on my GTX1080ti's

That is the parts im wanting to learn, ill look into your link...

Also, Im a littler confused on the Lyra2V2, it seems to estimate the HIGHEST returns for me when its actually mining it, but when i check my nicehash status, it shows a unpaid balance on the right side as if i mined the coin properly, but its the ONLY coin that does not list an accepted speed on the left, its just all 000000000's
