  6. NoDevFee - for Claymore`s Dual Ethereum and Phoenix miner ========================= Version 14.0.0 Beta features of the program autostart with Windows Commission for software developers (Claymore dual miner and Phoenix miner) returns to your wallet Simplicity in setting (You do not need to own any special features in order to customize the mining) cons of the program supports only ETH This is the first version of the program so there are possible bugs Since we are still developing and we do not need much money from the commission, we take 25% of the miner's wallet. So, you get a commission at the rate of 0.25% when you are mining with Claymore Dual miner. And when mining with a Phoenix miner 0.16%. in the future monitor farm without white ip Adding other Crypto-Currency Adding other pools Creating website Improve stability and increase functionality Suported pools Ethermine.org Nanopool.org f2pool.com dwarfpool.com nicehash.com DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - https://mega.nz/#F!nZ1wSKwJ!i6Q2HKNvJ4JhCCWqY55gqQDev Fee's - 0.05%FEATURES:- Supports applying optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly in Windows, without flashing VBIOS (currently Polaris, Vega, Nvidia 10xx cards only), up to 20% speedup. Best straps for Ethereum are included.- Supports new "dual mining" mode: mining both Ethereum and Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak at the same time, with no impact on Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is supported as well.- Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels.- Supports both AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed.- No DAG files.- Supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxies with all pools that support eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy.- Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining.- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Decred.- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin.- Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak.- Supports failover.- Displays detailed mining information and hashrate for every card.- Supports remote monitoring and management.- Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management.- Supports Ethereum forks (Expanse, etc).- Windows and Linux versions.This version is POOL/SOLO for Ethereum, POOL for Decred, POOL/SOLO for Siacoin, POOL for Lbry, POOL for Pascal, POOL for Blake2s, POOL for Keccak.For old AMD cards, Catalyst (Crimson) 15.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.For AMD 4xx/5xx cards (Polaris) you can use any recent drivers.For AMD cards, set the following environment variables, especially if you have 2...4GB cards:GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 1%, every hour the miner mines for 36 seconds for developer. For all 2GB cards and 3GB cards devfee is 0%, so on these cards you can mine all ETH forks without devfee, this miner is completely free in this case.If some cards are 2...3GB and some >3GB, 2...3GB cards still mine for you during devfee time, only cards that have more than 3GB memory will be used for devfee mining. Miner displays appropriate messages during startup.Second coin (Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak) is mined without developer fee.So the developer fee is 0...1%, if you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option.Attempts to cheat and remove dev fee will cause a bit slower mining speed (same as "-nofee 1") though miner will show same hashrate. Miner cannot just stop if cheat is detected because creators of cheats would know that the cheat does not work and they would find new tricks. If miner does not show any errors or slowdowns, they are happy.This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx, 2xx and 3xx, 2GB or more. Recent nVidia videocards are supported as well.CONFIGURATION FILEYou can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line. If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored. You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.If for Ethereum-only mining:ethpool:NoDevFee.exe -epool us1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F -epsw xsparkpool:NoDevFee.exe -epool eu.sparkpool.com:3333 -ewal 0xD69af2A796A737A103F12d2f0BCC563a13900E6F -epsw xf2pool:NoDevFee.exe -epool eth.f2pool.com:8008 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -eworker rig1nanopool:NoDevFee.exe -epool eth-eu1.nanopool.org:9999 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -eworker rig1nicehash:NoDevFee.exe -epool stratum+tcp://daggerhashimoto.eu.nicehash.com:3353 -ewal 1LmMNkiEvjapn5PRY8A9wypcWJveRrRGWr -epsw x -esm 3 -allpools 1 -estale 0Ethereum forks mining:NoDevFee.exe -epool exp-us.dwarfpool.com:8018 -ewal 0xd69af2a796a737a103f12d2f0bcc563a13900e6f -epsw x -allcoins -1FAILOVERUse "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files to specify additional pools (you can use "-epoolsfile" and "-dpoolsfile" options to use different filenames). These files have text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts. Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored. Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.You can reload "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files in runtime by pressing "r" key.Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list. If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt", "dpools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.You can also select current pool in runtime by pressing "e" or "d" key.REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENTMiner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.KNOWN ISSUES- AMD cards: on some cards you can notice non-constant mining speed in dual mode, sometimes speed becomes a bit slower. This issue was mostly fixed in recent versions, but not completely.- AMD cards: in Linux with gpu-pro drivers, the list of GPUs may differ from the list of temperatures. You can use -di to change order of GPUs to match both lists.- nVidia cards: dual mode is not so effective as for AMD cards.- Windows 10 Defender recognizes miner as a virus, some antiviruses do the same. Miner is not a virus, add it to Defender exceptions. I write miners since 2014. Most of them are recognized as viruses by some paranoid antiviruses, perhaps because I pack my miners to protect them from disassembling, perhaps because some people include them into their botnets, or perhaps these antiviruses are not good, I don't know. For these years, a lot of people used my miners and nobody confirmed that my miner stole anything or did something bad. Note that I can guarantee clean binaries only for official links in my posts on this forum (bitcointalk). If you downloaded miner from some other link - it really can be a virus.However, my miners are closed-source so I cannot prove that they are not viruses. If you think that I write viruses instead of good miners - do not use this miner, or at least use it on systems without any valuable data.TROUBLESHOOTING1. Install Catalyst v15.12 for old AMD cards; for Fury, Polaris and Vega cards use latest blockchain drivers.2. Disable overclocking.3. Set environment variables as described above.4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB or more.5. Reboot computer.6. Check hardware, risers.7. Set some timeout in .bat file before starting miner at system startup (30sec or even a minute), and try "-ethi 4" to check if it is more stable. It can help if miner is not stable on some system.

The previous CryptoNightXTL algo has been removed support for CryptoNight-Turtle (–algo=9) for the upcoming Turtlecoin (TRTL) PoW network upgrade (at block 1,200,000) Vega FE: option to turn –intensity up to 13 for “Fast” CryptoNight variants to gain 2% higher hash rates Cast XMR Version 1.6.6 (2018/11/30) – support for RX 590 GPUs added – fixes for detecting Compute Mode on Polaris based GPUs – support for CryptoNight-SuperFast (–algo=11) for mining Free Haven Protocol (XFH) – updated switch-radeon-gpu to version 1.2.0, which includes bugfixes for newer versions of the AMD Radeon driversCast XMR Version 1.6.0 (2018/11/07) – Vega 56/64: 0.5 to 1% performance improvement on CryptoNightV8 – Vega 56/64: 2 to 3% speed improvement on CryptoNight-Heavy variants (Loki, BitTube, Haven) – updated included switch-radeon-gpu to version 1.0.5 – support for RX 560 GPUs addedCast XMR Version 1.5.0 (2018/9/27) – Support for the Monero V8 Network Upgrade which introduces a new CryptoNight variant CryptoNightV8 aka CNv2. The Monero V8 update is scheduled for 18th October. In case you are mining Monero make sure to update Cast XMR before that date. Also make sure that the algo for Monero is not explicitly set to CryptoNightV7 but set to auto detect with –algo=-1 to automatically switch from CryptoNightV7 to CryptoNightV8 when the upgrade is happening. Please also note that the CryptoNight V8 algo has added complexity which decreases the hashrate up to 7% for Vega GPUs.Cast XMR Version 1.4.0 (2018/8/28) – 3% performance improvement for CryptoNightTUBE-Heavy when mining BitTube (TUBE) – support for Festival Coin (FEST) upcoming update which introduces a new CryptoNight variant: CryptoNightFEST. Use –algo=9 to continue mining Festival Coin after the network update happened – subtle performance improvements – Tested with Radeon Adrenalin Driver 18.5.1Cast XMR Version 1.3.0 (2018/6/29) – Performance improvement for job switches with multiple GPUs – Support for BitTube (TUBE) V4 Pow Update which introduces the new algo CryptoNightTUBE-Heavy aka CN Saber. Stay on –algo=5 to switch automatically from CryptoNightIPBC-Lite to CryptoNightTUBE-Heavy when the update is happening (approx. 2nd July). Please note that the hash rate will drop as it is a switch from a Lite to a Heavy variant.Cast XMR Version 1.2.5 (2018/6/19) – Support for CryptoNight-Fast introduced with the Masari (MSR) update. Set –algo=8 to mine Masari (MSR). CryptoNight-Fast will produce higher hash rates than classic CryptoNight, typical hash rates are: – Vega64, 1025 Mhz MemClock: 3630 Hashes/s – Vega56, 945 Mhz MemClock: 3700 Hashes/s – VegaFE, 1025 Mhz MemClock: 3900 Hashes/s – RX 470/570, 2250 Mhz MemClock: 1550 Hashes/sCast XMR Version 1.2.0 (2018/6/12) – Fix for “unauthenticated shares” pool error – Support for the upcoming Haven (XHV) V3 update. In case you are mining Haven set –algo=7 now. Cast will then automatically switch to CryptoNightXHV-Heavy when the network update is happening.Cast XMR Version 1.1.5 (2018/6/7) – Fix for mixed up device order – Support for Stellite (XTL) V4 Update. Add –algo=6 in case you are mining Stellite. It will automatically switch to CryptoNightXTL when the network update is happening. – Stability fixesCast XMR Version 1.1.0 (2018/6/1) – All new –intensity option to specify the memory allocation in the range of 0 to 10, upto 12 for Vega Frontier Edition.

For Vega cards the “HBCC Memory Segment” has to be disabled in the Radeon Settings to use the option. Disadvantage is a higher risk of hash rate drops when the –maxmem option is used.Cast XMR Version 0.9.6 (2018/04/17) – CryptoNight-Heavy fix for very low hash rates when HBCC Memory Segment is enabled – HBCC Memory Segment performance hint for Vega64 when mining CryptoNightV7 – Improvement for 4GB versions of RX 470/480/570/580 when mining CryptoNightV7Cast XMR Version 0.9.5 (2018/04/14) – 0.5% performance improvement for the CryptoNightV7 kernel – support for CryptoNight Heavy set –algo=2 to mine: – Sumokoin (SUMO) – Haven (XHV)Cast XMR Version 0.9.2 (2018/03/29) – Improvements for RX Vegas that achieve 99% the performance of the Blockchain Compute Beta driver with the latest standard Radeon Driver 18.3.4Cast XMR Version 0.9.1 (2018/03/22) – 0.5% overall performance improvement for Vega based GPUs – –ratewatchdog experimental option to monitor the hash rate, in case an occasional happening drop of the hash rate is detected the kernel will be resetted to restore the optimal hash rate – fully tested CryptoNight variant (CryptoNightV7) for the Monero V7 Network Upgrade PoW Change which is now scheduled for the 6th April. – In case you want to mine the Graft coin use the –algo=0 option, an automatic detection of the used CryptoNight variant is not possible for this coin. For all other known CryptoNight coins the hash variant seems to be detected correct – In case you are mining with nicehash.com or any other automatic coin switching pool that has the Graft coin in the mix the –algo=0 option is advised to prevent invalid shares on the Graft coin. Be aware to remove the option when the Monero V7 network upgrade is happpening otherwise it then will clash with mining Monero!Cast XMR Version 0.9.0 (2018/03/08) – support for the Monero V7 network upgrade. Read more about it here – the Monero PoW switch will be automatically detected, no restart of cast XMR is required. Only make sure to update cast XMR before the network upgrade is happening and that the used Monero pool supports the network upgrade – no decrase in hash rate for other currencies was introduced by the change – CryptoNightV7 will run at the same hash rate as CryptoNight – for any case there is the new –algo option to force which CryptoNight variant to use: – -1 = autodetect (default) – 0 = CryptoNight – 1 = CryptoNightV7 (Monero V7 network upgrade)Cast XMR Version 0.8.5 (2018/02/07) – 1% performance gain for Vega Frontier Edition with Blockchain driver (fastest GPU around) – 1% performance improvement with current stock driver (18.1.1) for RX Vega 56/64 (40% to go to reach Blockchain driver performance) – fix for random blocking console output – GPU now always logs with its device id not the order they are listed in the -G argument – –log option to log console output to a file – remote access includes CORS support in HTTP headerHow Tocast_xmr has a command line interface.

The most common is Monero.Get a wallet, that’s a ~95 character long identifier. If you don’t have one yet, you can create itChoose a pool to mine on, and its port. For example Pool pool minexmr com and port 4444Edit the start.bat that’s shipped in the .zipChange the example POOL by yoursChange the example PORT by yoursChange the example WALLET by yoursYou can leave the default password x(Optional) If your coin is exotic, maybe you also need to change FORK=0 to another number. See the list in the start batRun start batBasic topicsNeed .net 4.0 and >Q. Is it free (as in beer, as in freedom)?No and no. It has fees, and is not open source. But the program itself is free to distribute.Q. How much cost the fees?Current fees are:2.0% when using at least one mining thread with non-AES architecture, or 32-bits0.5% when using only 64-bits AES architectureThe fees are twice higher in non-AES mode and/or 32-bits because JCE offers a huge performance gain here.Q. Will it work on my computer?Minimum is Windows Vista 32-bits, or Linux, with a SSE2 capable CPU. 64-bits is faster, prefer it.For best performance, Large Pages must be enabled, JCE will try to auto-configure them, but it may work or not depending on your Windows version and security configuration.Q. What currency can I mine? On which pools?You can mine any coin on any pool.If your coin is listed, all is automatic.Run the miner with --coins parameter to get the up-to-date list.

Is there a Linux version?Yes, starting from version 0.29Q. Is there a GPU version?Not yet.Q. Is there a 32-bits version?Yes, both 32 and 64 are always in the same release, for both Linux and Windows.Q. How many threads can I setup?Maximum is 64 threads on 64 CPUs.Q. Do I get a discount on fees if I use SSL?I’m not Claymore.Q. What is that value logged when I find a share?The amount of hashes your pool will credit you. This is not the amount of crypto-coins.Q. Can I plug it to a stratum proxy?No, it must mine on a real pool on Internet.

  17. TL;DR: A too long post on how to get more hash and less power draw from your GPU's, while saving $20+ per GPU on power costs per year, and maybe increasing hash speeds up to 20%. If you are still interested, keep reading. If you think, BS! my rig produce max hash, then its your loss, max hash doesn't mean u earn the most possible $: you are just making a lot of heat. RX550 2GB ITX doing 520 - 530 h/s @ wall power draw of 76 - 77 Watt, or ~ 11.5 h/s/W (max possible hash = max earnings) RX570 4GB ITX doing 860 - 890 h/s @ wall power draw of 85 - 90 Watt, or ~ 9.5 - 10 h/s/W (for best possible earnings, max hash would be 900 - 960 hash, at <= 8 h/s/W) Thanks: First some important thanks to the guys from codpool (I am not affiliated in anyway btw), providing a lot of insights and help setting up my miners: CODpool, which runs various CryptoNight pools (Monero, Graft, BBS, and 20 others or so) with limited pool fees: Central pool page: https://codpool.com/ Combined Discord and Telegram chat (thanks to the awesome chat bridge from Bencey). Here you can find me too if you have any questions, suggestions, or want to share your thoughts. If you like this post, just say hi in the discord or forums, and mine for a bit on a codpool pool, into your own wallet, and maybe add them as fall back pool for when your pool might be down. No need to send me coins or whatever (but maybe send me an other card to test 🙄, as I out-tested my cards for now). Lets start with why this long-read: Power costs money (at least for most of us): 10 Watt power reduction at $0.10 per kWh will give you: 10W / 1000 * $0.10 * 24h * 365.2421875... = $8.77. For a RX570 4GB, lowering default voltages, flashed, and overclocked and stable memory, you can cut 40W easily. 20W more is also possible, as you will see below. Saving you $52.59 on a single card, per year. Power brings heat (nice when its cold outside, but lower heat is better for your cards, ears, etc.): Above saving of 60W will give you: 60W / 1000 * 24h * 365.24... = 525.95 kWh. With that amount of power you could make 525.95 / 0.444 = 1184.57 * 1 liter cans of boiling hot tea..., each year.... ( 1 liter = 0.264 US gallon btw). Starting tips: Get a Power meter between the plug and the PSU cord (~$10 - $20), so u actually know what power you draw or are saving: I got this one, which seems to be rather good: brennenstuhl-pm-231-e Software tools like HWi, GPUz, etc DON'T give you the correct power draw, and are way off. Maybe get 2, so you can add one on your main rig, and use the other one while testing. Power draw is a good way to spot if something is wrong with your miner (with focus on clocking resets, hanging miner, etc) Make some simple test setup: Motherboard with PCIe connection and onboard video (so hash is not affected by the monitor), maybe use a PC-case for power buttons, otherwise use a screwdriver (only if you know what u are doing). PSU that can handle the TDP of the CPU and GPU, so something like 300W - 500W. Temporary monitor, mouse, keyboard for installing Windows, and setting your bios right with video output via internal graphics. Later on I prefer to use remote desktop. Preferably SSD (fast, as u will be rebooting a lot) or old 2.5 inch HDD (they both use not much power, and cause less power fluctuations), although I used an 3.5 inch HDD but that costs a lot of time for rebooting and reading out average power draw. Download the following software: I have provided only 'official' links to the pages of the developers of the actual software, don't go for tools that seem to be more recent, but not from trusted sources. Windows 10 latest Autologon this will make your PC login automatically, even when Remote Desktop is enabled. Just double click the file, and provide your credentials. This helps starting your Miner and other tools to start automatically after a reboot, without the need to login. (if your miner does start, but not continues after a bit, you need to mess with internal graphics in your BIOS, maybe attached a fake monitor dongle, or a turned of monitor). Often preferred AMD driver, or some recent AMD driver, which I use and seems to give way less memory errors on bad cards. I don' like the AMD GUI, it is slow, annoying in remote desktop, etc. So I extracted the package, canceled the actual installation, went to Windows Device Manager, chose update driver for a AMD card, selected the C:\AMD folder to be looked into for the driver, and voila. Compute mode can easily and fast be set via SRBminer, no need for the GUI. Copy the original start .bat file, and make the last lines look like below, and run it as admin: SRBMiner-CN.exe --setcomputemode timeout 20 HWi, for monitoring memory errors, voltages, clockings, temp, fan speed etc. AMD/ATI flash for flashing your GPU bios with better straps. AMD/ATI pixel clock patcher (needs to be run after flashing GPU bios, or your GPU wont be recognised). OverdriveNTool, for changing clocks and reduce voltages, (note that for recent drivers, you'll need a recent version of this tool, or even a beta, otherwise some options might not work!) SRBPimp for making custom straps (to get higher hash rates), use the 'pimp my straps' option, or make straps with some other PolarisBiosEditor. (I used this RX550 mod to get just a bit better hash than using SRBpimp: MSI AERO ITX RX550 2GB Lexa hynix elpida mod. Various miner options: TeamRedMiner, claims to be great for Vega, and is great for RX550s, not yet for RX570s as I tested it extensively. SRBMiner, easy to use, stable, lots of features, gives good hash speeds for my RX570s, and voltages can be set extremely low, meaning less power draw. XMR-Stak, more difficult to configure, atm limited hash speed compared to options above ... DDU for total removal of GPU drivers if needed, and a clean install, or when you want to update drivers. Just deinstalling drivers won't remove them completely, maybe causing issues Make some spreadsheet to log all your tests and settings, because after 5 setting changes you wont know what u did before, and with 100s of possible settings, you will get lost, So log the following: Most important: Power draw (Watt), Hash/s, Memory errors, test duration (say 10 - 15 min each). With the duration you can calculated memory errors per hour (MER/h). Values set for Core Clock (CC), Core Voltage (CV), Memory Clock (MC), Memory Voltage (MV) Maybe also actual CV, MV, reported by HWi. Basics on GPU power draw: Power companies bill on kWh power usage, which means using 1000 W for 1 hour = 1kWh Power (W) = Ampere (A) * Voltage (V), and for GPUs (and CPUs) we can only easily lower the voltage, so by lowering voltage, we lower power draw, and therefore costs. GPU voltages are set well above stable values, to always guarantee good operation under any load. For a RX570 the Core Clock (CC), the Core Voltage (CV) is about 1150 mV, while I run those for mining on 800 mV or less, meaning ( 1150 - 800) / 1150 * 100% = 30% less power draw by the core. Memory voltage is by default around 900 mV, and can be lowered to about 800 mV too, saving only (900 - 800) / 900 * 100% = 11% power draw by the memory. Luckily the core is the largest power consumer, so can we reduce the power draw by about 30%? In the results below I will show you I reduced power from 155 W (stock voltages, CC at stable overclock) to 86 W, or by 44%, but resulting in more hash loss than power gain. Optimum hash vs power usage for me resulted in 90 W power draw instead of 155 W, or a reduction of power usage by 42%. To measure your GPU power draw, build your rig without GPU attached, boot it, let it run idle for a couple minutes, and read out the power draw at the plug. This is your base power draw, which should about 15W to 30W. Write this down as you later will be needing it. (idle GPUs draw about 10 W to 20 W) The most interesting part of this post: In short: LOG EVERYTHING, especially Hash and power draw, I made this: Example OC Log AMD video cards Optimize on earnings = $/h * h - W * $/W, not on just hash or h/W. Use SRBminer as this seems the most stable miner while testing odd stuff, and get a quick and sufficient understanding of your cards behaviour. Max out MC, lower MV, (CC CV MC MV) start: (1244 1150 1925 900) = 887 H/s @165 Watt Use default CC, lower CV until just stable. end: (1244 887 1920 775) = 913 H/s @111 Watt Lower CC by a 50 or 100 Mhz step, then smaller steps (eg do something like 1250 1150 1100 1075 1050 1025) With each step also lower CV till stable, for less power draw Got free power? or just don't believe lower CC will earn you more, up it, and if needed power too. (and don't forget to read out power draw) best: (1075 762 1920 775) = 866 H/s @90 Watt Hash will drop, but power draw will drop faster till a certain point, upping your hash/W, just log al those points, so you can put them in a chart: click for larger image: Some explanation on above: This is just data for a typical RX570 4GB ITX + SRB, so don't blame me if you get better data, just be proud you got better cards than me, or can tune better! Maybe drop your plots below. Al cases where I got more than 4 MER/h are left out of the chart Al runs are like 10-15 minute ones (some are way longer, just to see if I am right) Chart is based on ~150 test runs, showing you only need a couple of tests. (maybe 20, even just 5 - 10 if you have a set of similar cards) Results: A little bit more max hash, costs a lot more power (= more heat, more MER/h btw) Lower MC doesn't allow for a lower MV, no h/W gain here for lower MC So just max out MC, and lower MV till stable, no need to test for other MC than max. (MV draws limited power, so no worries to set it a tiny bit above the lowest value) Biggest h/W gain comes from lowering CV, this may require lower CC. Those angled dotted straight lines show the Hash/Watt, so dots more to the left, the better h/, but they also cost a little total hash If power costs are low, or h/W is high, it could mean almost max hash at best voltages, without lowering CC, might be the best spot. For me this is at about 11 h/s/W, so my RX550s are ~maxed out, while my RX570 produce ~60 h/s less than maxed out With a lot of details: Flash your GPU BIOS with SRBPimp + ati flash. (make sure you save the original BIOS per card (yeah, even for the same brand/type/series/serialnumber/etc they might differ, I have 3 identical cards, bought at the same time, each with different original BIOS) Choose your miner, and apply possible best miner settings: SRBminer, use defaults as a good start, (my first choice for testing to get good base clock and voltage settings) TRMminer, use defaults as a good start, or read here XMR-stak, defaults suck, you need to google for this, stroll on reddit, check xmrstak.com, read through all open en clossed issues Make some spreadsheet to log everything you change, and the effects on hash and memory errors of it. example log: Vary only 1 item for each test, otherwise you don't know what is causing the changes Start with defaults, or known OK clocks. Make runs of say 10 - 15 minutes each, if too many errors, or miner doesn't work OK, just go back to the last setting that worked, and end the run. Apply new settings just before reboot. Always reboot. Why those long runs? I make the miner start directly after reboot, so Windows and other stuff will still be starting Max hash can take a couple of minutes to be reached. I want a sufficient duration to get a good view of the amount of memory errors per hour (MER/h), as I accept 1 - 4 MER/h max, as long as it doesn't cause errors in the miner. A limited amount of errors does in general not affect your hash rate. Having some MER over time, indicate that you are actually on the maximum possible for a card. If you don't get any, you havent maxed out your card... In the mean time, you can do something useful, like writing this crap, or do laundry... Why always reboot? Crash and/or settings reset in general cause lower hashes Closing miner, and restarting in general won't bring you back to max hash Disableing + Reenabling GPU via device manager (or script) is not (even a 80%) guarantee the GPU is back how it should work Changing GPU settings often needs a reboot, especially when it has been under load before. Changing GPU settings while mining will not give you the results you need, or crash your miner, etc. In the end it saves you time making runs that are actually bogus. (Maybe tune a bit with the default miner settings, but discussing that here is not the goal) Every GPU will have different best settings, not one card is the same, but similar cards, will have close to similar settings. Find your max possible hash based your GPU properties (stable hash) (log each step/change): Set / change GPU clocks and voltages using OverdriveNTool, (ODNT) for RX5XX atleast, leave Core P1, P2 and P7 active, (deactivate others by a click on the PX). First 2 postions are locked in register anyway, and provide a stable, low power draw for when your card is not mining for some reason, and therefore not pulling tons of power. For the memory, deactivate position P2. Use all default clocks and voltages, maybe cut core clock already back to 900mV - 950mV Increase memory clocks in steps of 50 Mhz if you are in a hurry, and do 25 Mhz step back if you notice too much issues , otherwise just use 25 Mhz increases. (Memory clocks are the biggest factor in maximum hash) For each increase, run for 10-15 min, log hash, power draw, settings, MER/h, and possible other notes like miner settings, BIOS flash etc. Get some MC with little to no MER/h, and a bit more Mhz will increase the number of MER/h a lot, then you got your max MC on your card. Cut down your memory voltage in steps of 25 mV, and if needed use smaller steps of 12 mV (use values like X12, X25, X37, X50, X62, X75, X87, X00), till you notice a loss in hash, a crashing miner, or a increase in MER/h. (what I noticed, is that the MV lower limit is basically the same for all realistic MC for a typical GPU). Tips on miners: TRM miner needs in general like 25 mV more MV and CV compared to SRB, while the power draw won't increase much. A little more (like 12-25 mV juice here can also improve hash by 10%). SRBminer is great for all its features and simplicity for tuning. Stak is on that part a disaster. Tips on rig components: Use a decent PSU, 80Plus Golds are definitely worth it if you tend to run it for a year or longer. 80Plus Golds are about 5% more efficient than 80Plus Bronze. At say a power draw of 800W, or 800W / 1000 * $0.10 * 24h * 365.24... * 5% = $35.06 savings per year. So you can easily spend that $70 more on a great PSU instead of that crappy $30 PSU that probably will burn your house down too. Dont run your PSU at 100% power, but stick with about 60% load. This means 3% better efficiency on Corsair PSUs (so not even for the cheap ones), or about $21/year gain based on above, making it worth to just get that bigger PSU! Buy your PSU based on 90% of total TDP, as with undervolting you can bring it back to ~50-60%, and wont overload the PSU when all your GPUs reset to defaults, under full load. Plus side of those more expensive PSUs, the come with overheat, short-circuit and what not protection, and it probably will save you a new motherboard for wrong made connections etc. Current SSDs use about 5x less power than a current HDD, older ones can easily go up to 10x, maybe saving you $4/year. Recently I got an 120GB SSD for $25, while the HDDs where larger, and more expensive. As you will be using large page files, so memory not only on the RAM but on the disk, the drives will be loaded continuously. CPU, get the new cheapest ones, mining on CPU is not profitable in general. Newer CPUs use easily 10W less power when idle than an old one of 5 - 10 years ago. Risers and cables, don't go for the really cheap ones, and get some spare items too because you can count on it some will fail...

    Using a proxy

    I've had a bitch of a time managing just 4 rigs. For each of them, I created batch files to switch coins which made things easier, but I would still have to change things manually on each rig. Now I'm using SRB Miner and the Auto Algo Switching capabilities and the CryptoNote Switching Relay Proxy. Made life much easier... just click a button and all my rigs switch to whatever coin I want from wherever I am. https://github.com/bruceleeon/cryptonote-switching-relay-proxy

It runs under Windows x64 and Linux x64 and has a developer fee of 0.65% (the lowest in the industry). This means that every 90 minutes the miner will mine for us, its developers, for 35 seconds. The speed is generally faster than Claymore's Ethereum miner in eth only mode (we have measured about 0.4-1.3% speed improvement but your results may be slightly lower or higher depending on the GPUs). To achieve highest possible speed on AMD cards it may be needed to manually adjust the GPU tune factor (a number from 8 to about 400, which can be changed interactively with the + and - keys while the miner is running). If you have used Claymore's Dual Ethereum miner, you can switch to PhoenixMiner with minimal hassle as we support most of Claymore's command-line options and confirguration files with the notable exception of the dual mining feature (yet). Please note that PhoenixMiner is extensively tested on many mining rigs but there still may be some bugs. Additionally, we are actively working on bringing many new features in the future releases. If you encounter any problems or have feature requests, please post them here (in this thread). We will do our best to answer in timely fashion.

    FEATURES: Supports new "dual mining" mode: mining both Ethereum and Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal at the same time, with no impact on Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is supported as well. Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels. Supports both AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed. No DAG files. Supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxies with all pools that support eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy. Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining. Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Decred. Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin. Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak. Supports failover. Displays detailed mining information and hashrate for every card. Supports remote monitoring and management. Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management. Supports Ethereum forks (Expanse, etc). Windows and Linux versions.

    Claymore's CryptoNight AMD GPU Miner. This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 1% if you use secure SSL/TLS connection to mining pool, every hour the miner mines for 36 seconds for developer. If you use unsecure connection to mining pool, current developer fee is 1.5%, every hour the miner mines for 54 seconds for developer.
