Off-topic - Fuse... how did Coinye go... I tried to get into two pools... could not connect... could not be bothered and went back to mining TAG.

It was shady to say the least.  The wallet was password protected, so there was a mad scramble at the time of release to get it opened and set up to mine.  The main site, main thread and twitter all didn't release the password.  Some guy posted it in the forums about 10 minutes after the first couple pools were mining at difficulty 1.  Obvious insider info.  So then once the majority of the pools got going, there were quite a few that were obviously skimming coins.  So by the time I was able to get miners pointed at a good pool, the difficulty was already 16.  I mined through the night without issue and banked about 530k coins.  I turned my miners back over to TAG less than 24 hours later.

But the shadiness of some of the pool ops was really sickening.  I called one of them out on it.  He was trying to tell people there were various issues for a couple hours, but still advertised the pool in the thread trying to get people to mine.  He had a period of about 40 minutes where there were no blocks being found, and the site was hashing at about 700MH.  So more than likely, he swapped the wallet out, turned off the cronjobs, and pocketed the coins for 40 minutes.  He claimed he didn't know what happened... yeah, ok.

I'll tell you... being a pool OP really opens your eyes to how things run and how other OPs do things.  It makes it really easy to know when an OP is scamming someone, because you know the symptoms of "problems" and what should and would happen when they are resolved.

So yeah... I've got ~530k Coinye.  You buying? lol

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Miner #6 came online tonight... pair of ASUS 280X's... wow... I thought the Gigabyte Rev 2 cards were nice... the ASUS cards are a whole different level... run about 10C cooler... and run 730Kh/s out of the box with no tweaking at all... so I am now a solid 9Mh/s with getting close to 11Mh/s with all the PC's online.

Next rig will be a trio of 270X's... but not for another week or so... got to make some money.

Off-topic - Fuse... how did Coinye go... I tried to get into two pools... could not connect... could not be bothered and went back to mining TAG.

Congrats man! I've said before, each card is a little different, and motherboard/bios combinations will sometimes yield varying results. With these new R9 setups, they have a lot, and I mean a lot, of personality between each card. With my MSI 7950's, my whole farm of them all mine at the same speed +/- 1kh. With my MSI R9 280X's, they vary by about 20-30kh on the same motherboard with the same settings. To my surprise the TOXIC yields the best results of the R9's I've tested. And in your case you get far better out of the box speed with a card than some others.

This is a good example of real-life results varying greatly with people with different hardware. With my testing, I've decided to move exclusively to 270X cards though. If my TOXIC order from Amazon continues to get pushed off, I'll just cancel it. If it comes through I'll likely sell the card at a profit. Either way, I'll use the money to buy more 270's.

As to coinyecoin, yeah I'm a little gruffed myself. I was setup with 3 pools prior to launch, ready to toss 11mh at it. It took me over an hour before I could connect to those 3 or ANY others. You can bet some of the large whales out east had some inside connections and were mining before others, and likely the pool ops were locking folks out. Some folks walked away with a few billion of the coin before I got my 1 million.

By morning I switched to another coin. I've got my million, so now once an exchange pops up I'll toss it. It doesn't look like an exchange is going to pop up though..

Maybe it's time for a graveyard exchange to come online for lots of the dead coins, especially ones which had promise. I dunno how it would be funded, but it would get lots of traffic I bet ...

I found some Asus AMD R9 270x 2gb ddr5 for about 13,000 PHP. / 44 = 295.45 USD. The 7950s I saw in late December are all gone.

Dabs, have you seen this thread yet:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=393218.0;topicseen

He's in Taiwan, so he might be able to do a cheaper shipping option for you and save you some coin/cash.

Nice. Thanks. Although with the shipping, unless I order a bunch (or more than 4 GPUs), it comes out about the same. At the store here, I can ask them to order the cards too, but I'll have to wait. I am guessing they also get it from the official distributor here, who gets it from the official factory.

I will have to consider between time / cost / availability. The new ASROCK BTC motherboards look interesting. Now, if only he had powered risers to go with it, we can buy a whole rig from him.

Don't forget most ASrock (and other brand) motherboards with 1x PCIE slots can be used to support a GPU, you just need a 1x riser for it. My Asrock 970-ex4's will run 5 gpus. Might save you some money if you have to find a lesser slot motherboard.

Fuse / 24Kilo, check out the Tag thread, my newest post. It regards my old BAMT post, which I made an update to. Remember how you guys tried my modified tahiti binary and it didn't do anything? I think I found out why; in my steps, I forgot to have you delete the original one. So the new one was never being used.

So is there any consensus yet on which is the best/most efficient 270x card?  Got my electricity bill today so I now know how much change I have to spend on cards..  Grin

PS: 24kilo. you have a PM.

Wow you got 730KH/s out of the ASUS card without tweaking any settings? That's impressive!

I spent forever trying to get mine to push 700 and I've tweaked a bunch.  It only ran at like 550-600 right out of the box. Do you know what settings it's currently running at to get that high?

Here is a screen-shot of my batch-file...



A pair of ASUS R9280X-DC2-3GD5 running an identical 735Kh/s... 1.470Mh/s average over the past 24 hours.

John,

Got PM... I am figuring nearly $30 per day... so will be pleasantly surprised if it comes in at $20.

I am going to start with ASUS R9270X-DC2T-2GD5  or Sapphire R9270X-2GD5-VAPOR...  these are only 2GB cards... not sure if it worth spending an extra $30 for a 4GB version... Vesper has the scoop on 270X.

I am hoping to build a 3x270X miner in the next fortnight... then I am done... that puts me at 10.5Mh/s  in dedicated miners plus another 2Mh/s in PC's... I am going to spend time learning Linux and all that good stuff.

EDIT - I completely passed on Coinye... probably missed a chance to make a quick BTC or two... but so be it.

Yep. Vesper is probably our go to guy for all things 270x... Which leads me to my question.  I've had a bit of a hunt around and can't really find any useful info on the 4gb 270x.  No reports here: https://litecoin.info/Mining_hardware_comparison In theory 4gb of GDDR5 memory should make it a killer budget miner.  BUT.  I read one obscure reference somewhere that the architecture of the card doesn't really allow one to use the extra 2gb and it is just a bit of a marketing gimmick. 

Vesper, got any info on this card?  I'm guessing if it was a better bang for buck card you would be buying the 4gb versions not the 2gb versions??

I've had a few people ask me that, and unfortunately I have no on hand experience with it because I can't get ahold of one and refuse to pay the ripoff prices some places are charging for them right now. They're on my amazon hotlist though, so if I can get one I will try it out.

Thanks man, I'll try that out.

I actually recently just built a rig that's a trio of R9 270s (non x version). I was reading that the 270x hashrate is around 475 KH/s, and the 270 can get to 475 as well.  Currently, all three of mine are hashing at a consistent 470 KH/s each, so I'm getting the same hash power out of a cheaper card!. I got three gigabyte ones from Newegg for $180/each, and it seems most of the 270x's are going for $220+. Something to think about Wink

Thanks for the tip. I've been wanting to try a 270 out just for giggles. I got my 270x's at $200, so I was pleasantly surprised with the hashrate. 492 on one right now. 4 more to be tested tonight.

Will look into the 270's now haha.

I should have 2 x Sapphire VaporX 270x cards on the way plus stuff to assemble two more rigs.  I just need to populate them with cards which will be challenging.  I am thinking I'll try to get one filled with 270x and one with 280x. 

I have two stray Sapphire DualX 7950 cards that don't have a home atm... they didn't play well with other 7950 cards.  Interestingly, this morning as I was shopping for the parts, my wife said she wants me to show her how to build a miner and set it up.   Shocked  So, I think I'll help her pick out a regular computer case, etc to put those two cards in.  (I expect my monthly board game quota will go up though.  LOL)  But how cool is that.

What do you play, Frank?

I've been really into card games lately... Fluxx, Munchkin, etc.  I've been debating really geeking out and getting the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.  It sounds like a bunch of fun for someone like me who loves RPGs but never did pen & paper.

We have Munchkin but I have not played yet.  Dutch Blitz, Rack-O (card games), Sequence (card +board), and Zombies!!! (board game) are currently our favorites but we have a closet nearly filled with various board games and card games.  I tried a pen&paper RPG once, but as it turned out all of my friends were a-holes as dungeon master so... probably wasn't as much fun as it could have been.  That Pathfinder Adventure game looks pretty cool.  90 minute game time (I assume for scenarios) isn't bad at all for a fun evening.

Yeah, supposedly it plays like pen & paper, with character sheets and whatnot, but the cards tell the story.  So no real need for a DM, which is what my circle of friends would suck at doing.  We can roll dice and bash on baddies all day, but we'd be horrible story tellers.

If you ever get a chance, and you haven't already, check out TableTop on Geek & Sundry's Youtube channel.  Will Weaton, from Star Trek / Stand by me, hosts a tabletop game with friends.  Different game every time, and every episode is worth a watch.  The wife and I watched them all via our Roku, and it sparked our desire to game more.  The dragon age dual episodes was one of my favorites.

Some days I feel like a complete computer idiot... I cannot even burn a copy of BAMT to a USB that works!!!

Frank... any power readings for a 3x270 rig... wondering if it runs cooler and more efficient than a 3x270X rig.
