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).
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

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...
