What hardware are you mining with?


#1

Hey guys, new to mining and zen is only the second coin I’ve started to mine. The team looks great and the concept sounds solid so I look forward to feeding hashes!

I’m running some old hardware in an old gaming rig but I’m curious what everyone else is running!

I figure a list is in order:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition clocked at 3.6GHz
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX r2.0
RAM: 16GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600
GPU: Sapphire 270x Dual-X OC clocked at 1150mhz core and 1420mhz VRAM

I guess that’s all the specs needed for mining sake. I want to know what everyone else is running and if I have the worst setup in town or not :joy:

Happy mining!

I bought a GPU specifically for gaming, but of course you end up mining with it when not gaming:

GPU: Asus ROG Strix GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti OC edition 11GB GDDR5X
Miner: EWBF CUDA miner 0.3.3b, no tweaking, latest but not the optimal NVIDIA drivers
Speed: 684-719 Sol/s (avg. ~700)

Edit: with 0.3.4b I’m getting solid 710+ Sol/s (with 729 Sol/s highest on a 10 minute time range).

Other gear is like 5 years old. There’s a new version of EWBF just out said to give a small speed burst.

Currently RX 480s. Next ut are RX 580s. I use Asus Strix OC cards with 8GB RAM. Rest of my hardware is old except the SSD disks.

I use Ethos mainly or Ubuntu.

And thinking to put my PC 2 work - CPU FX8300, 16Gb, UltraDurable mb (5slots - 3x16pin + 2xpciE) with maybe those new GPUs of Nvidia P106-100 MINER 6G but not sure about them…

For now try this>>> ASUS B250 Mining Expert
After update the P106-100 driver can support from 8 cards to 19 cards(for now only P106)
they build in 24 pins for 3 so you can operating 3 PSU at the same time

I was mining with ASUS Z270E Gaming+ 32G + I5-6500 +STRIX GTX1070*6 Leadex 1300W
And I will try P106 with mining expert
