CPU mining. ... and I just found a local supplier that has 280X cards. Is the TOXIC at $380 a good price? I'll go order a pair.

ORDER IT NOW!

If you can get them sub $400(the over-inflated price almost everywhere in the US) you're at about 2kh/$, which is my target price point.  Solid buy at $380, mate.  I'd buy it at that price all day long.

Ok, I can get the following from my computer store:

Quote
Sapphire R9-280X Toxic 3GB GDDR5 384bit Video Card

ASRock 970 Extreme4
AMD Sempron 145 2.80GHz

Seasonic X-750 750W 80PLUS Gold (Modular)
Seasonic X-850 850W 80PLUS Gold (Modular)
Seasonic X-1050 1050W 80Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply
Seasonic X-1250 1250W 80Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply

Aerocool Strike-X 1100w PSU 80Plus Gold

Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 Memory Module



The first thing I'll do is get one or two GPUs, then install it in my brother's computer. The next thing I'll do after that is set up an open air rig with all the other parts.

How do I compute for power? 300 Watts per TOXIC card + 200 Watts for everything else? That Aerocool is significantly cheaper, but I've not seen it in any mining guide. I could get 2 of those, but if that's the case I might as well get 2 of the Seasonics. (Or just 1 of them, if it's good enough to power everything.)

I'd buy all those toxic's and resell them on ebay for 450 lol.

TO be safe I'd use 350w per toxic 280x. 100w for the system (mine is 55-75w, but 100 is good for buffer).

After several days the 5 card 270x system is stable with all of them running without issue. The trouble card I lowered to 18 intensity and it's been fine since. Power draw at the wall is 850w max for 2,350-2,450 hash/sec, that's pretty nice.

I have a box of Asus 270x sitting next to me I'll try sometime this weekend. I have one of them running right now, I couldn't get it past 415, I think it needs the infamous BIOS upgrade. The nice thing is these Asus models are silent, they have a nice cooling setup.

Dabs/others, my inbox has many messages. I will respond soon. I'm busy trying to setup stuff for some people we have over tonight.

FYI:

There is an issue processing the jackpot this week due to the orphans.  The script I use will not properly parse through the orphan blocks and is throwing countless fatal errors when I run it.

I am working on a resolution to the script issue, but if it does not work, there will not be a jackpot this week.  The jackpot fund will carry over to next week, and hopefully we can process the jackpot next week.

I'll keep you guys updated on the progress.

-Fuse

EDIT- I have modified the script code, and it appears to be working, but I need to break the rounds up into smaller processing groups(again orphans).  It will take a little bit longer, but I should be able to complete the jackpot today.

6th Jackpot

Alrighty folks, here's the info:

There were 368 total rounds for the week.  To be eligible for this jackpot, you would have needed to submit shares to 75% of those rounds, equaling 275 rounds.  There were 34(record) people who qualified for the jackpot.  This was out of... get ready...  614(another record) miners who mined on the pool this week.  The qualifying miners are as follows:

acrinfo666
AFKMPEG  (previous week win - excluded)
anchous
asdf
bobgbtc
Bodamn
buzz_1976
cccfree888
clxy
dermaxxx
FusesDad   (excluded from jackpots)
giltar
gorilla_warfare

jdlavaud
johndec
kubur

Sergik
sesamum
TagCoinDaddy
thbrd
Thekmartsheriff
therteen
tiger
vesperwillow
wgs520

xmwxw
zybqe177

Now some not so great news... frankly, the jackpot fund sucked this week due to the orphans.  Approximately 1/3 of the blocks we mined this week were ophans, and as such we made no coin on them. So...

This week's total fees and donations equal roughly 180TAG  Sad.  So half of that, the total jackpot purse, is 90TAG.  Like I had stated before, if the total jackpot wasn't 100TAG or more, I would pay in to make it 100TAG minimum.  So the total payout will be 100TAG.

This week's winners are as follows:

1st place -  cccfree888        50TAG  - TXID 742ce25be002345a348eed4bfa72e68b5d8de9835e3dd62f44ce5418857f376f
2nd place - giltar                  30TAG  - TXID 77aef5d9fcddfdccd0c07ac5703f517375e95991309a4447b3c2272aad56f931
3rd place -  sesamum          20TAG  - TXID dd693ea5fa1a8157c58368eb80f1243a92d0eadece5b0959d317f13c8c834fc6


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

Congratulations, miners!  Good luck to everyone next week!  Let's hope the orphans don't kill us again this week.

Announcement regarding this week's jackpot:

Chofoe had brought it to my attention that there was an error in the fact that he wasn't listed in the eligible miners for the week, even though he actually was eligible.  Like I had mentioned earlier, the script I use to calculate the jackpot decided that it didn't like all the orphan rounds and crashed about a billion times.  I had worked on it a little, and I thought I had it squared away and working properly.  However, this obviously isn't the case.  There is a possibility that there could be miners besides Chofoe that weren't included, but should have been.  However, I can't go back and re-run the eligibility again, as I have already paid out the 3 miners who won.

There is no excuse for the fact that it wasn't working properly.  It should have been rock solid, and it wasn't.  I'll be looking at how to fix the issue and improve the code.

I am truly sorry to Chofoe, and also to any other miners that may have been left out of the eligibility this week because of my error.  It wasn't intentional, and I promise it will not happen again.

Fuse, if you can find out who those others were, compile a list and let me know. As a goodwill gesture to all in that list, I will gift them some TAG. If it's only Chofoe , I will gift just him.

Now, that is truly something.

Here are my stats:


Dabs, 14, 0.046, 1

I think that's KH/S, TAG per day, and shares.

Can someone quickly point out the difference between a 280X Vapor-X and a 280X Toxic? Aside from the price. If you have both or have seen the hash rates of both. (Sapphire brand.)

Power usage and clock speeds are higher on the toxic.  Also the 3 fan on the toxic vs the 2 on the vapor provides a hell of a lot more cooling power.  And kind of a neat little aesthetic thing, the toxic cards light up "SAPPHIRE" on the top side of the card.  Looks cool when you have a farm of them(which Mark does).

FYI: DOWNTIME.

We will have about a 5 minute downtime for the new update shortly.  You may or may not notice it.  I may also update the stratum protocol to a newer fork which adds more customization through the config.  If I do that, mining will be down for about 10 minutes.

-Fuse


EDIT: Tagcoind updated to version 1.3.  Stratum left untouched for now.

Downtime again.

Stratum is throwing errors left and right in the log files after the update.  I'm going to try a stratum update, and if it does not fix the issue, I will revert back to tagcoind version 1.2 until I can find out what's going on.

-Fuse

Stratum updated.  Pool is operation correctly again post wallet upgrade.  GET SOME BLOCKS!

@vesper, have you gotten the ASRock 970 Extreme4 to mine with 5 280X Toxics? (or 6 GPUs)? And did you use more than one PSU? That's the motherboard I plan to get for my dedicated mining rig.

If I do a 5 Toxic rig, using your computation, I would need 1850 watts. So I can get the following?

Quote
Seasonic X-750 750W 80PLUS Gold (Modular)
Seasonic X-1050 1050W 80Plus Gold Full Modular Power Supply

But I'm still missing 50 watts, maybe I should get the 850 and the 1050 instead.

Well shit... there's an orphan.  Let's hope it was a freak occurrence.  If I see 15 in a row, I'm going to cry.

Hey Fuse,  I'm needing help with my account.  I have been getting the message, "account is locked" ?  I had gotten my password wrong a while back and figure this is why I'm seeing that.  I would like to get back to Tagmining.  Can you provide me with a link for contacting support or let me know what's up with this?  Thanks!

Oh yeah... I guess I need to read things, huh? lol

I've got a million things on my mind right now.  If I start making more money with pools and mining, I'm quitting my job to run pools.  I'd rather work on pools as a job than work on them as a hobby.

TagThePinkPanther, sent PM.
