Averaging 3,200kh/s with 2 Fury's.  382 Clock, 300 Read Count.  Using current Darkwinde build.  31 hrs running.

I haven't tried different RC settings yet.

60 watts per Fury after putting all of the four fans on a separate power supply.  I had an old fan controller that lets me control RPM to cut down the noise.  One of the extra fans I'm using is a Delta that is (was) very loud.

happydaze, is that with just cooling and new thermal paste?  Or did you also do the volt-mod?

That's volt modded.  Approx 7.67k resistor value. 1.4v to the chips.  And extra fans for cooling https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=644921.msg7354916#msg7354916

My fury is gonna be here today. Is there a Darkwinde Windows binary?

If not which is best to use atm off windows OS?

Anyone have a default settings config for the fury? For windows binary. For scrypt. bfgminer.



OP has a link to DW's thread where he's got binaries linked.

yup. thanks, got it. Got the driver installed. Got bfgminer 4.2.2 on my desktop but no conf or bat.

Now I need a .bat or .conf default settings for the fury for scrypt.
https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=20477.0

bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://SERVER:PORT -u WORKER.NAME -p WORKER.PASSWORD --zeus-cc 6 --zeus-clk 340 -S zeus:all --no-submit-stale

I will use this.

Code:
{
"pools" : [
        {
        "url" : "pool:port",
        "user" : "username",
        "pass" : "password"
    }
  
]
,
"zeus-cc" : "6",
"zeus-clk": "333",
"zeus-rc": "300",
"api-description" : "cgminer v3.1.1-zm",
"api-listen" : true,
"api-allow" : "W:127.0.0.1",
"api-port" : "4028",
"api-mcast-port" : "4028",
"expiry" : "120",
"nocheck-golden" : true,
"hotplug" : "5",
"log" : "5",
"queue" : "0",
"scan-serial" : [
        "//./COM0",
        "//./COM1",
        "//./COM2",
        "//./COM3",
        "//./COM4",
        "//./COM5",
        "//./COM6",
        "//./COM7",
        "//./COM8",
        "//./COM9"
]
,
"scan-time" : "1",
"scrypt" : true,
"shares" : "0",
"verbose" : true
}

Now how would I run this?

Like cpuminer uses config.json. What would cgminer use?

Edit:
I am already so frustrated with this.

Like for cpuminer "minerd" in the folder I would have minerd-gc3355.exe, config.json, start.bat.

start.bat has a cmd in it

Code:
minerd-gc3355.exe -c config.json
pause

That directs minerd to use the config.

How would I do this with bfgminer?



bfgminer.exe --config someconfigfilename.conf

No, but there's instructions over on the Litecointalk thread here:  https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=20477.0

Should be easy enough to follow and modify stock minepeon and add in the precomplied bfgminer.

i was able to use that tutorial for 4.2.1 however the first pool i put is regardless of eaht pool it is always shows "dead" i tried compiling 4.2.2 and i couldn't get it to switch to mining with 4.2.2 it just stayed at 4.2.1 i also couldn't get decent poolside hashrates with minepeon 4.2.6 and 4.2.1 . after about 45 mins my poolside hashrate only show 4mh/s, my miner side hashrates are over 7 mh/s. guess ill wait till the nect revision to try again.

or just -c file.config

also --help often show up interesting things Wink

just test with one miner per instance and also without any failover pool. Currently seems that is the most stable configuration now with 4.2.2

That's awesome.  I read that darkwinde was testing at rc of 270 but haven't seen results.

I would use that version but it doesn't work at all with manicminer pool which is where I usually mine at so I'm stuck with dmaxl's build of cgminer.

I'd like to get one miner that works for both gridseeds and Zeus hardware.  In tried building bfgminer with support for both last week but had no luck.  It would see the gridseeds but not the furys.

Seems to have no real effect on the miner as this parameter only enables the miner not going out of work, so think this will never happen in our cases with a counter around 300 Smiley

Independently I am currently looking into an observation that a clock 349 an rc 270 seems to be more stable (less HW error) on my blizzards but this can also be related to a better lower air temperature with the room. I will report if I found out something worthwhile but as I stated first, think RC has no real influence at the current stage.

how do i run 5 instances on minepeon 4.2.6 and your bfgminer 4.2.1? i cant find and condig settings to run 5 separte instances?

The current web ui does only support one miner at port 4028 so if this is ok for you can do to create for each miner a separate screen instance and a dedicated config file like this:

/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus0 /home/minepeon/bfgminer --scrypt --zeus-cc 6 --zeus-rc 300 --set zeus@/dev/ttyUSB0:clock=347 -S zeus:/dev/ttyUSB0 -c /opt/minepeon/etc/miner-zeus0.conf

/usr/bin/screen -dmS zeus1 /home/minepeon/bfgminer --scrypt --zeus-cc 6 --zeus-rc 300 --set zeus@/dev/ttyUSB1:clock=346 -S zeus:/dev/ttyUSB1 -c /opt/minepeon/etc/miner-zeus1.conf

You can also place this commands at the web ui under Settings -> Miner Startup as part of the bash

Impressive...I wish I had the tools and skills to do a volt mod and the extra fan.  I think I may just setup a copule of spare 120mm fans I have laying around to blow on these from the end over the chips and see if that helps.  I think with having wires connected on both ends of these it makes it harder to find a way to arrange 7 of them to best optimize airflow without having to buy fans for each one.

Im using bfgminer 4.2.2 and im mining in GHash.IO but my stale, reject and HW error is kinda high to me, is that normal ?

this is my setting

bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://multi.ghash.io:3333 -u Worker -p Password --zeus-cc 8 --zeus-clk 329 --request-diff 128 -S zeus:\\.\COM4 -S zeus:\\.\COM3 --no-submit-stale




Anyone able to tweak my setting ?

Is there a Hashra image with BFGMiner for the Fury's? I can't stand CGMiner, currently using ZenMiner.

Thanks.

Zeus have 6 chips, You can't write something else than 6. Try --zeus-clk 338.

Ahhh thank you. Now i get this. Am i right to say, you cant write anything more than the chip they have ?
Would it be better for the miner if i remove all the casing and run them without it ? cooling measure  Tongue

You could write anything you want...BUT Blizzard / Fury device still HAS ONLY 6 (SIX) hashing chips, soldered on it's board...which are used for hashing...nothing more...or less...
