Hello Forums,
I have built my first mining rig, I went for a little bit cheaper option with 2 cards only because I wanted to see how it goes before I blow more money into this. I ordered 4 more of these cards, along with 6 risers.

Rig

- Asrock Fatal1ty H270 Performance,
- Kingston Hyperx Fury 4GB DDR4,
- Intel Celeron G3920 Dual-Core,
- Radeon SSD 120GB
- ASUS GTX 1050ti Expedition 4GB x6 + 6 Powered 1x -> 16x Risers,
- Corsair RM750i 750w 80Gold

Total cost: 1650$

Set Up

BIOS Settings
  • Update BIOS using EZ Flash
  • Above 4G Decoding - Enabled
  • Top of low usable drain - 3.5GB
Unless you set the settings like these there is a high chance your RIG wont even boot.

Windows 10 - Low Hash Rate, around 2.2 MH/s per card. Maybe I should've updated Windows, but gave up on it quickly.

Windows 8.1 - Installing windows 8.1 fixed the low Hash Rate for me. Setting the EthDcrMiner64.exe's priority to Realtime in Windows Task Manager, my Hash Rate stabilized to "maximum possible", never dipping below that even when playing games (using Intel's HD integrated GPU for games, of course).

NVIDIA Driver - Install the newest driver from NVIDIA website. Current newest is: 384.76 for 1050ti. Any driver does the same so don't worry. If you want to update your driver, first download DDU to uninstall previous driver with it. It is highly recommended.

Links
Claymore's 9.7
DDU

Miner config
Code:
-mode 0
-dcoin dcr

-epool eu2.ethermine.org:4444
-ewal wallet.worker
-epsw x

-dpool dcr-eu.coinmine.pl:2222
-dwal coinmineUsername.worker
-dpsw coinminePassword
-dcri 60

Overclocking
- Power Limit: 100%,
- Temp Limit: 83*C,
- Fan Speed: 10*C = 10%, 20*C = 20%... N*C = N%

This is all that I've found out so far about OC-ing the cards for mining.
  • In case you are mining ETH / ETC only, pull the Core all the way back to -400 (Lowest), and Memory to +1000 (max) on each card, but on the last, 6th card. I've found out that all of my cards actually work fine with max OC on the Memory (even though it's Micron), but the last one crashes the entire system if set above +850. Core clock has absolutely no influence when you mine ETH / ETC only, so lower it down to minimize W drain and cards temperatures.
    ETH ONLY: 94 MH/s (15.5 MH/s per card)
  • In case you are mining ETH / ETC + DCR / SC... You need to up the Core high now. Maximum stable I god today is +225 to the Core, and +1000 to the Memory (except the last card which is at +850 Memory) Core clock seems very significant when dual-mining.
    ETH + DCR: 82.5 MH/s (13.8 MH/s per card), 1650 MH/s (280 MH/s per card)

Thanks for reading, have a nice day Smiley

Hi,
how many ETH did you earn a day  Grin? I am planing to build a cheap system like you before starting with more expensive ones.
Thanks.

I started 19 hours ago at stable 30MH/s with both cards. 0.01202 ETH is my current balance as of right now, thats 4.5$. I hope to hit 6$ a day.

OP you have some realllllly cheap power at $0.04/kwh to $0.01kwh.  Wow!

Yeah that is maybe reason #1 why I started mining. Cheap electricity = faster ROI

Judging by the picture, he gets around 70 degrees for the first card and 60 degrees for the second card, but the fans seem to be set at 50%(at least for the first card).

Just tested, my 1050ti 4GB goes unstable after +700 memory clock, core clock didn't change anything, so i left it at +650.

Stable at 13.63 mh/s it seems at a very low temperature.

Decent boost.

Set Up:
I first tried Win10 with latest NVIDIA drivers, but GPUs worked at around 2.5 MH/s each, which is pretty darn terrible. I downloaded each driver available from NVIDIA but NOTHING seemed to move it above 2.5 MH/s.



I have this same problem with a fresh install of Win10 and claymore dual miner.   I've been working on this problem for a couple weeks when i have time.   It only happens with a fresh install of Win10 with only nvidia 10x0 cards.  Do all the updates and everything and still only 3 MH/s per card.

I run into the same issue days ago and followed this post to resolve it, have fan:

Hey. How do you mean it gets unstable? Which GTX 1050ti do you have? Asus, MSI.. .Which model?
Also (for Win 8.1 & 10), try to open Task Manager, go to details, find EthDcrMiner64.exe, right click it, and set priority to realtime. Not only this set my Hash Rate to absolutely stable 30, but I can now also play League of Legends on this rig without ANY dips below 30 whatsoever.

What temps are you getting with this cards?

I have set the fans to 100 now, the first card runs at 60*C, second at 50*C. The second blows the hot air into the first so it's not surprising. I will order 4 more of these cards tomorrow maybe, and 6 risers for them to make a better airflow. But 60*C at max Memory Clock is beast if you ask me, I never had a card run this cool

That's pretty good.
No idea, i get a weird command in the miner -something something and it stops mining.
ASUS PH-GTX1050TI-4G - this is the exact model from Asus.

Wanted to ask you, what are/were your exact earnings for a day on ethermine? I am mining on nanopool right now so i'd like to know if i should switch.
Thanks.

That's hard to determine in dollars because of price shifts. The miner has been running for 2 days straight now and I earned about 0.03 ETH. I had the same wierd error like you when overclocking. Do you use windows 10? I had that problem on Win10 but on Win8.1 everything is working smoothly

Could you please run the claymore miner benchmark up to DAG 180-190? Wondering if these 1050 ti will be the same as 1060's (wont loose hashrate over time).

All the RX cards have this issue but so far no pascal cards seem too.

Yea, i am on windows 8.1.

And yea, i meant the earnings in ETH*, pretty good for that build to be honest!

To be frank i won't be trying to OC it anymore over what i got, my score was to only get an OC in general, at least for now simply because i was determined to leave the card non OC and anything over stock mh/s i get is a worthy bonus for me!

The only thing left for me is to test if my earnings are the same as the ones for people on ethermine. Doing a 24 hour test now on nanopool to measure compared to you if i get similar/more earnings based on mh/s (i use 3x different cards).

Not sure what this means... I'm all new to this, could you explain what I should do exactly?

I use claymore's 9.5 miner. Do you use MSI Afterburner for OC-ing?
Please do report if nanopool earnings are better. I just ordered 4x more of these cards I want to maximise my earnings, because my dad also started giving interest into this and wants to invest into another 6x GTX 1070. That'll be a beast

have you tested it on other algos?

Not really, because I only want to mine ETH. Maybe I test this on zcash today just to see how goes, I will post when I do what I get out of it.

I mine Ethereum with 1050Ti : the hashrate is not so bad but i'm a little bit anxious with the diificulty grows.

Yeah, difficulty is rapidly increasing. But so should the ETH price, too. It's not that of a big deal tbh. Just keep on mining and saving, and one day we all might get rich $$$$$$ ^^

I do not intend to be rich with crypto currencies, but thanks for showing us yours 1050 Ti mining rig experience, I 've been always a huge nvidia miner fan, since the beginning of cudaminer / ccminer.

Nice temps, btw.
