Anyone here ever try Gigabyte 1GB 7850's?

You'll get 350 out of them, so a little more than 2kh/$ with what Newegg is selling them for.  The 2 fan design isn't as killer as the 3 fan design, but they're good cards.  However, if you can find them(they pop up every now and then), you're better off buying 5850s in the forums at half the cost.  I've been able to find used 5850s for < $75.

But the 7850s are stellar.  And Gigabyte is known for a trade up on an RMA when the model is discontinued(7950s are getting 280Xs in return right now).

Was that the 1GB or 2GB model, for speed?

1GB model.  Consider it the new 5850 at a higher clock speed.

Here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=317408.0 is a (so far) 94 page thread about TAG. 

To summarise it, you can mine and sell TAG just like any other coin or you can use TAG as a reward for your website/business/crack house/ whatever..  Shocked  I recommend you read at least the first few pages of the above thread.  The developer of the coin really has some big plans for it.

LMAO... I should take a trip out to Colorado and try to sell the new recreational marijuana shops on using TAG rewards lol.  It would make the news instantly.

Cograts Fuse.  As they say, "From little things, big things grow".  For those that don't know, Fuse found the first block on the pool.  I couldn't believe it because at the time as I was the pool "whale" with a massive 1.5MH/s  Grin  From memory, I think I found the next 4 or 5 blocks but I can't take away his claim to fame!!

Ahh, memories..  Wink

That first block was painful lol... the worst luck ever.

I have a question for you guys... do any of you mine enough to be able to quit working if you wanted to.  I don't make a whole hell of a lot at work, and I did the math to figure out that I could make more mining at about 8MH a month.  I'm not much of a mine and sell kind of guy, but that's really tempting.

Any input from anyone?

4th Jackpot

Alrighty folks, here's the info:

There were 358 total rounds for the week.  To be eligible for this jackpot, you would have needed to submit shares to 75% of those rounds, equaling 268 rounds.  There were 19 people, my 2 accounts, who qualified for the jackpot.  This was out of 156 miners who mined on the pool this week.  The qualifying miners are as follows:

ahczbhht1989
anchous
Andrewgaven
Bodamn
clxy
Eukaluis
flywin
FusesDad  (excluded from jackpots)
johndec
kubur
ny2cafuse  (excluded from jackpots)
Sergik
TagCoinDaddy
vantaggg
vesperwillow  (previous week win - excluded)
weatherman12
wgs520
xmwxw
zybqe177


This week's and last week's total fees and donations equal roughly 240TAG, about the same as last week.  So half of that, the total jackpot purse, is 120TAG.

This week's winners are as follows:

1st place -  Eukaluis              60TAG  -TXID 0273a9b79a8ed5bd4c4e69130e8ec755a646a6b875738df540a78161a046f7d0
2nd place - Andrewgaven   36TAG  -TXID 6abbaaaf1203a22a743d964da5d5bd86b0301c74f93314734ed5122a9548dbee
3rd place -  wgs520             24TAG  -TXID 7b7273b491bfb143e3a91467a9c601a0efb178ccdf63840c65edaf2a9d9b07a0


Payments will be sent shortly, and TXID numbers will be posted above.

Congratulations, miners!  Good luck to everyone next week!

I just posted 70TAG on the tagbond exchange for 0.00096BTC each.  Cryptsy price ATM is 0.001BTC.

Have at it.

Congrats to the winners!

I don't make enough to replace my job, that would be nice. Maybe one day.

I figured out why one of my miners died, PSU has given up the ghost. It has run non stop for awhile now, and I had to shut it down the other day for a few moments. That's all it took, something gave. It was a Raidmax 1000AE, supporting 980watts.

It'll power up a motherboard, but the 12v rail can't take a load.

That sucks, Vesper.  Almost sounds like what was going on with Johndec not too long ago.

I'm surprised no one has found a way to modify industrial power supplies to drive mining equipment.

Hmm.. That's strange. 6 orphans in the last 10 hours and they were in three lots of consecutive blocks??  Anyone got an explanation.  Seems unlikely that it was random bad luck.

Wouldn't be hard in my mind.. 12VDC is 12VDC, anything providing 30 amps per GPU would work.

As to the orphans.. who knows.. maybe nobody is using tag? lol

I posted up the question in the main coin thread... it's happening on all the pools.  I'm a bit confused about it, as it only really started in the last week.  We did have an orphan about a week and a half ago, but it was one.

I restarted all the services and checked the cronjobs thinking it was just the pool, but then I started checking other pools.

If I had to put money on it, I'd say we're going to see a wallet patch coming out soon.

So I let some of my systems mine netcoin for almost a whole day. I check my account.. I have like 500 some coins, out of an estimated 3,500. I was like, wtf. I checked the block logs.. just my luck, the pool I was on had like a 16 hour marathon on one block, and shortly after I left they started hitting them hourly. Roll Eyes

Couple of cards which were having issues, I put the prolimatech on them, they're more stable and not having issues now. GPU0 has always run hot, even when I first got it. Now, it's not doing too terribly at all. It's sitting above the PSU fan exhaust right now which accounts for a couple C* of heat, but I'm happy it's below the mid 80's it usually wanted to be at.



Yay for reviving GPUs. GPU0 has 2 of the 140mm Prolimatech Ultrasleek Vortex fans. Silent, and each run 98cfm. The other GPU has the normal Vortex fans, 87CFM. This is why the RPMs are different. When the fans are set to 100%, GPU0 drops into the 60's.

Figured I'd share. I'm just happy the cards are running again. Happy Mining.

I am not mining TAG at all at the moment... just could not keep up the grind over at TAG.cryptopool.IT.. we had a 24hour block... and I have 9.5Mh/s hitting it. I don't think we have any orphans, but then we have only been getting 4 to 5 blocks per 24 hours.

Sorry to hear about the bad luck on both netcoin and the PSU... hope that you are back and running soon.

I am making it my goal to get one of my miners on BAMT... but the whole process is wrecking my brain.

I have all of my 280X's running at 700Kh/s or better... average of about 725Kh/s over 12 cards.

Has anyone here ever flashed a GPU BIOS... been thinking of flashing one of my Gigabyte Rev 2 cards with the Rev 1 Bios.

I flashed my Gigabyte 7950s to an earlier bios so I could undervolt them.  Worked fine.  Do your cards have a switch on them so you can use the 2nd bios if the flash fails?

I did a F43 flash on the Gigabyte 7950s I had.  Easy peasy.  Just make a bootable usb, put the ATIflash utility and the bios bin file on it and run the command.  IMO the F43 bios is stellar on those WF3 Rev.2 cards.

The WF3 have a little switch by the crossfire ports... you'd never know it was there unless you looked.  You can run two bios versions on those cards.  Flip the switch, flash the bios, and you've got a backup of the old bios if needed on switch position 1.
