I'm still having trouble wrapping my mind around how all that works.

 I really need to sit down and read about the tech behind this, but, well, life is pulling me in other directions right now.

 Trying to figure out why my 2080ti Windows bminer rig decides to reset the GPU clock and fan settings from time-to-time, and that's aggravating in and of itself, considering the other balls I'm juggling...

EDIT: Seems the 2080ti causes bminer to crash and auto-restart with a 200mHz overclock. The auto-restart seems to cause the fans to reset. Testing now with a 150mHz overclock, but glad I'm able to narrow things down. The Zotac 2080ti does not seem to recognize the fans with Afterburner, so forced to use some other tool to manage the clock/fans. Using EVGA Precision XOC to manage the Zotac, and first time I've used that suite of tools...

It's your clocks.
+150 would be the maximum.
Should be a lot more stable at +100.
Memory clock set to 0.
You are trying to find the fine balance between power consumption and G/s.
What is your G/s? Guessing ~ 20+ G/s for c29?

With NVDIA you should make it work with Afterburner.
Must try:

Set fans manual to 60%-80% always.
Temp?

Hello,
I've been mining GRIN for few days using GGM. GrinPro miner also seems to be working. However, I want to squeeze a little bit more hash power from the RX580 8G that I have, so I tried bminer (latest version 14.1).
I'm getting the following error:
" Failed to initialize the CUDA platform: CudaError: Failed to load nvml.dll "
It seems to be something related to the bminer software, as the mining works just fine with the other two miners.
I have tried searching with no luck. Any ideas what may be going wrong?
 

Cuda is Nvidia specific AFAIK (but they just open sourced it so maybe it's been adopted - I doubt it though). AMD uses a different Physics engine originally havok then renamed mantle now called vulcan which OpenCl takes advantage of .

Thanks for the tips ! Will check out the firestorm utility in the morning.

Just shy of 11 G/s for c29 on a single 2080ti. Fans set to 85%. I try to keep the card temps below 70C. Aim for ~65C usually, on both the 1080ti and 2080ti.

Just south of 20 G/s total between the the two cards, however on c29.

i dont believe bminer supports MW on amd right now...  but in case i'm wrong, take a look here for general instructions for specifying amd devices:

lol you got geu-west
replace with eu-west  Tongue
Probably typo, it's eu-west in the .bat file.
I have found few other people trying to do the same and it seems that the bminer does not work for AMD, at least for now.

Any time dude.

Optimal temp would be around 55C-65C. Need an open air rig for that.
Temp is very important obviously.
Above 70C things slow down.
Above 75C things start to loose stability.
Above 80C, well you get the picture, and that goes for mining anything.

Also for windows users I have found very useful:
- Auto rebooting the PC every 24h-48h (not that it needs it, redundant if stable).
https://sourceforge.net/projects/windowsreboot/
- Start bat file with system on boot, with a time delay (so that the OC software kicks in first).
Bat file needs to contain a timeout command before anything else:
Quote
@echo off
timeout 20
Place a shortcut of the bat on the startup windows folder.
- Making sure the miner is always running by a secondary 'watchdog'.
https://w-shadow.com/blog/2009/03/04/restart-on-crash/
- Use API for remote viewing.

Similar tools are available for all OS of course.

Under $1 Grin is wishful thinking imo, it's not gonna happen.
That would mean, that everybody would stop mining it. They would have to.
And that would be declaring Grin a complete failure - in a few weeks as you mentioned.
I don't see it.

Well... not everybody, just ~75% or so to push the diff low enough to make mining profitable again.
Miners have gone a bit crazy on Grin, I'm taking my and cards off it and putting them on something else in the mean time. I am however picking up more Nvidia cards as Grin and other cuckaroo coins will be popular for a while.

What coin are you suggesting is better to mine right now (w/ reasonable exchange volume on at least mid-tier exchanges.)  From what I see, this is by far the most profitable (esp on 31,) by an order of magnitude.
Not sure, and I may not be keeping my word too much on it, I want to expand my Nvidia holdings, it seems AMD is just a bit too weak at this, there are rumors of a flashing the Vega cards to a a FirePro bios which would enable DirectGMA  and make a vega comparable to a 1080ti since the memory bottleneck would be gone like with DirectGPU.


*You might just be able to flash pro series amd bios to mainstream but the Firepro software checks for certain on board things*

Out of curiosity, does anyone know / has tried running a 2080ti and 1080ti in the same rig, for mining purposes ?

Will this create a black hole and destroy my garage ?

Haha, at least you have them in the garage, I have them in the house upstairs screaming 24/7. Roll Eyes
Actually the fan installed in the mining room for circulating the hot air off the open rig cards, makes the most noise.
It's like a small airplane engine. Tongue

How can we be sure that Grin has not been exploited without any addresses? Someone could be instantly creating blocks to a single wallet right now and there is no way to detect

Good point, we cannot, any proof maybe?

From the little I've seen & read, double spending is next to impossible. Then again, that means shit.

I am not speaking of Double spending. Many coins have been exploited by the creation of false coins and caught by the community via the explorer showing an obscene amount of coins directed to a single address. How can we be sure that is not occurring as we speak? This is a glaring issue that requires far too much trust when cryptocurrency is meant to be trustless. This is the exact opposite of the purpose of cryptocurrency.

As for proof I have none, because it is impossible to know, that being the issue. We have to entrust that everyone is playing by the rules, when we know that everyone playing by the rules is very unlikely. This is the Schrodinger's cat of cryptocurrency. Grin is neither exploited or un-exploited because we can not see inside the box, this is virtually us entrusting in the government all over. Funny how things come full circle, eh.

I see no reason why they couldn't be taken together in the same rig.

Thank you for the detailed answer.
An obscene amount of Grin moving to a single address doesn't mean much though. Could be just a whale swimming.
Other than that, I tend to agree with your view point.

yeah pretty much this.

dont have a 2080ti to mix in but on one rig i have 460/2x470/1070/1070ti/2x1080ti. win10pro 1709  with updates locked out.

assuming your psu can shovel out the watts i cant see any reason they wont coexist fine.

I was speaking about an obscene amount of coins being generated by a single address, that would signal an exploit.

What are you wailing about? Obscene coins lol?? is there a pretext with hidden sexual meaning about these coins' nastyness? Look what that idiot says: Schrodinger's cat of cryptodumbency sits inside the blockchain and scratches its undergrid while uncertainty principle prohibits the existence of malign transaction cause these transactions and coins generated from unknown origins collapse into the possibility of multi-outcome function.
