I'm new to mining (haven't done it before) - I have access to a cluster of ~30 Tesla M2090 Fermis, and 8x Tesla M2050.
Is there a miner that works on this / will it give any amount of coins worth a damn? This is in a datacenter with proper cooling, so shouldn't be running too hot (averaging ~60-70).

If you're renting gpu solely for mining, you're probably going to lose money. Anyway, this thread may help (see OP) http://bitcointalk.org/?topic=7403.0

Not exactly your config but the Op does have 2 x NVIDIA Tesla “Fermi” M2050 GPUs. As for miner, you want a miner that uses CUDA.

I'm not renting GPU - it's free usage 24/7 for 6 months.

Any other suggestions ? :s

In my experience the 5830's have been the best investment ROI that I have seen. I have 8 of them and everyone of them is generating over 300 Mhash using the phoenix miner and a little overclocking. I got them from newegg for $109 apiece. You probably won't be able to find them that cheap now but I saw a few on ebay for around $130.


I've 9 5830's and a 5850 that I mine with at times. I also have a VPS and I am very seriously thinking about hosting a mining pool.

If you think that my posts are the best ones that you have read send me coins!

Nvidia is very bad for mining. 2 or 3 ATI 6990 would probably mine more than your whole Nvidia cluster...
