After that, when you turn the PC back on it should automatically detect each of them and it will install the drivers for all of them. Radeon Settings. Each GPU has its own bios, that tells it how it should work. During the mining of ethereum, you will only be using memory of the GPU, that means that the higher quality of the memory is, the better hashrate you can get.
Download a tool called GPU-Z. This tool allows you to see what memory type your card has as you can see in this picture. Now you have your original bios exported, make a backup before going to the next step. First you will need to download a tool for flashing the bios called ATIFlash. With this tool you can put the custom bios over your current one. Always make a backup for your current bios and store it somewhere safe, you can never know when you are going to need it.
There are a couple of different popular mining programs, depending on the algorithm they are working with, the most popular are:. This guide is focused on the Ethash algorithm mining, so the settings and the tutorials from this guide are not optimized for the other mining algorithms like CryptoNight. Even if you have expensive electricity the bonus profit is probably worth it.
All miner software have a developer fee, that is your miner mines for the developer as a fee for a few seconds every hour. Phoenix miner has a fixed fee of 0. How to setup Phoenix Miner? You may also download it from BitcoinTalk. Now that we have our miner, we need a mining pool to start mining. Until now, Ethermine was the most popular pool, however, they have recently changed the minimum payout to 0. Hence, I prefer binance pool over ethermine. Binance pool has a fee of 0.
To mine using Binance, create an account at Binance Pool Create a mining account username. In the directory where you have extracted Phoenix, create a new text file. Add the following line in the text file:. If you would rather use Ethermine, use the following line: PhoenixMiner. Unlike binance, that stores the mined coins in your binance account, with ethermine, you need to have a ETH Wallet address.
Replace the address above with your ETH wallet address. In the above command, we have used eu1. You may want to use us1. Visit ethermine. Double click to start the mining process. You may also add a shortcut to start. To do so, create a shortcut of start.
To view the statistics of your mining and unpaid balance at: binance , you may visit Binance Pool Stats ethermine , you may visit ethermine. Be c areful what pool you are using, it should be based on your location, it would make no sense to mine on an European pool if you are in America because of the high ping. After that you can write your own ethereum address which is used to collect your ethereum shares. For example using Nanopool:.
I use Binance to mine Ethereum I have explained the reason above , you can use ethermine or dwarfpool or nanopool also, but ethermine gives most reliable statistics. Go to Chapter 11 to see why some people prefer nanopool. Most easy way to create an ethereum wallet and keep it safe is to use the exchange sites like Bitfinex or Bittrex.
They will offer you high security and you can use the Two Factor Authentication which makes it very secure. For big amounts I would recommend to use offline wallets like Trezor Bitcoin Wallet. This gives a possibility to utilize the GPU core for mining some other coins in the same time as you mine ethereum without affecting its hashrate. The part before the -dwal is the same as for the solo ethereum mining described above.
The -dwal has the same representation as -ewal, it just is the mining pool of the dual coin. I would recommend to mine ONLY Decred as a dual coin, because it has the highest efficiency of all of them. For RX 5xx cards the best way would be to go with Decred. I use the Supernova decred mining pool. You need to create an account there, and the account name will serve you as a decred mining pool address.
You can create a decred wallet at Bittrex. I convert my mined decred to ethereum at a bittrex exchange site, and store my value like that. That means that the dual coin is set to mine intensively , and it shows how much GPU core is assigned for that task. The memory used for ethereum mining is almost the same on those cards, so there is basically no difference in the ethereum hashrate, but the big difference comes in the GPU Core. For RX series the optimal -dcri is around For some cards even lower as 13, this needs to be tested by yourself.
The proper way would be to start with -dcri By going up you will see the dual coin hash rate going up, repeat that until you can start to see the ethereum hashrate decrease, then, after you find that spot reduce -dcri by 3, so you are not pushing the GPU to the limit. Optimal for RX is around -dcri 19 , optimal for RX series is around -dcri I will explain it through the following picture:. The optimal value would be 60C. You can check this during the mining in Claymore, by seeing how much the current fan speed is in percentage.
We will have 1 profile per GPU on your mining rig. I'm having this same problem on one computer but not the other. Sorry, something went wrong. I got the same issue here. Trying to start up the miner to mine MTP Firo immediately hard reboots my rig despite my cards running at stock settings. I shut it down a couple years ago. No I shouldn't have Thing is, this is a known stable hardware build, with high end hardware. No reason the hardware won't support the activity. So if it's crashing, I'm looking at the software.
Am willing to help test or I can move to a different software, but I am motivated to get this running. I have the same problem on Linux Debian , Driver Version: Skip to content. Star 2. New issue. Jump to bottom. Copy link. T-REX 0.
Same problem when as high as GB. Reducing GPUs doesn't solve this.
Default value is "dcr". You can also specify values for every card, for example "-dcri 30,,50". Default value is 5 seconds. Default value is 30 minutes, set zero if there is no main pool. Default value is "-wd 1", it enables watchdog, miner will be closed or restarted, see "-r" option if any thread is not responding for 1 minute or OpenCL call failed. Specify "-wd 0" to disable watchdog. For example, "-r 60" - restart miner every hour or when some GPU failed. So you can create "reboot.
After restart, miner will append new log data to the same file. If you want to clear old log data, file name must contain "noappend" string. If missed, default file name will be used. Reduces mining intensity, useful if your cards are overheated.
Note that mining speed is reduced too. More value means less heat and mining speed, for example, "-li 10" is less heat and mining speed than "-li 1". You can also specify values for every card, for example "-li 3,10,50". Default value is "0" - no low intensity mode. Supported values are 0, 1, 2, 3, more value means lower intensity.
Example: "-lidag 1". You can also specify values for every card, for example "-lidag 1,0,3". Default value is "0" no low intensity for DAG generation. For example, "-tt 80" means 80C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tt 70,80,75".
Specify zero to disable control and hide GPU statistics. Specify values Note: for Linux gpu-pro drivers, miner must have root access to manage fans, otherwise only monitoring will be available. You can see current Decred intensity coefficients in detailed statistics "s" key.
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-ttdcr 80,85,80". You also should specify non-zero value for "-tt" option to enable this option. It is a good idea to set "-ttdcr" value higher than "-tt" value by C. For example, "-ttli 80" reduces mining intensity if GPU temperature is above 80C. You can see if intensity was reduced in detailed statistics "s" key.
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-ttli 80,85,80". It is a good idea to set "-ttli" value higher than "-tt" value by C. For example, "-tstop 95" means 95C temperature. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-tstop 95,85,90". This feature is disabled by default "-tstop 0". If it turned off wrong card, it will close miner in 30 seconds. You can also specify negative value to close miner immediately instead of stopping GPU, for example, "-tstop " will close miner as soon as any GPU reach 95C temperature.
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmax 50,60,70". This option works only if miner manages cooling, i. Default value is "". You can also specify values for every card, for example "-fanmin 50,60,70". Default value is "0". If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cclock ,,,0". Unfortunately, AMD blocked underclocking for some reason, you can overclock only.
You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mclock ,,,0". If not specified, miner will not change power limit. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-powlim 20,,0,10". For example, "-cvddc " means 1. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-cvddc ,,,". Supports latest AMD 4xx cards only in Windows. For example, "-mvddc " means 1. You can also specify values for every card, for example "-mvddc ,,,".
Specify negative value to enable monitoring get statistics but disable management restart, uploading files , for example, "-mport " enables port for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked. You can also use your web browser to see current miner state, for example, type "localhost" in web browser.
Default value is "1", use "-colors 0" to disable coloring. You can use "config. If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config. 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. Use "epools. 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. 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.
Start "EthMan. Check "Help" tab for built-in help. What is dwarfpool proxy eth-proxy? It causes less profit because of delays. Proxy is connected to the pool via Stratum protocol so it has small delays too. Currently most pools support Stratum and you have to use HTTP-to-Stratum proxy to make official miner work with pools properly.
So you should connect it directly to the pool at Stratum port and it will work a bit faster than official miner via proxy because there is no proxy between miner and pool. Why miner does not stop overheated GPU immediately? See question above about wrong temperatures. Also all command line options must be in same line in. No way. It is Ethereum miner with extra bonus coins. To mine extra coins only use other miners. Why Ethereum hashrate in Dual mode is higher than in Single mode?
Hardware feature, accept it as an extra bonus. Is Usually latest drivers work well. But there are some reports of people where they don't. So Usually no, but it depends Check for yourself. Why miner does not show temperatures for RX cards? Why miner on Linux with stock card settings gives a bit lower hashrate than on Windows? This probably is the difference in time calculations on both platforms. In reality the accepted hashrate is usually the same. Sometimes they do not work.
Use Afterburner or Trixx on Windows, atitweak and other tools on Linux instead. This is a price for the extra work done. It also consumes more power, so make sure your PSU has sufficient power. How can I undervolt my cards on Linux? Unfortunately, no standard way of doing so.
Why pool shows less hashrate than miner? Also, from my calculations miner loses about 0. Usually I use "ethpool" pool for tests. I see only one card via Remote Desktop Connection. Miner works in ETH-only mode but crashes in dual mode.
How can I get stats from miner as EthMan does? Skip to content. Star 1. This commit does not belong to any branch on this repository, and may belong to a fork outside of the repository. Branches Tags. Could not load branches. Could not load tags. Latest commit. Git stats 15 commits. Ah eth an lbry perfecto. Non the less it definelty condenses the unyeildly origional post about the miner so thanks.
As on Thursday one of my friends told me about Eth, we attempted to set up geth, parity and geniol a number of times, on saturday morning after trying overnight to get it to mine I gave up. And as if by chance maybe only 30mins after telling my friend I saw this post, and got it working straight away, one spooky coincidence, do you have an Eth adress? I would be happy to mine it for a couple cycles. Mist is still downloading blocks and will probably take a week so Mists Address will obviously not work jet.
Just for testing i used my poloniex deposit address and still only rejections. I also tried myEthereumWallet web client thingy which yielded me the most success so far. Only DCR rejected me all the time. The pool should be an EU pool too so there shouldn't be a reason to reject me either. I've been back and forth on getting in on Bitcoin with an Antminer, but I worry it's already as high as it'll go so there's no point. But I know that's not the topic here.
I have a Clevo laptop with a gtx and k. Worth it to start mining? I'm not currently paying electricity. I have been using my poloniex wallet to mine right onto from a pool. It depends a bit on the coin, but your deposit address is static and is linked to you, but with poloniex there is a minimum amount that needs to be deposited before it shows up.
Still mining directly to a local wallet is the safest, one think I suggest when using a local wallet is to open GETH with CMD and using the -fastsync command so you don't have to download the entire blockchain, which takes a lot of time and space on your storage.
Nobody can stop you and it can certainly mine, it just isn't suggested. Feel free to try it though if you want to learn a bit about how miners and crypto works. Return to Level1Techs. In this thread I'm going to explain the hows and whys of mining alt coins for yourself. First thing one ought to do is to get the wallets for whatever coin you're thinking about mining, local wallets can be very slow to sync with the network They have to download the entire blockchain to your storage You can also mine directly to whatever you use to trade with Example Poloniex To set up Claymore's dual miner you first download whatever is the latest one from one of the links in the main thread.
These are the minimum commands you need to change to get your miner working. Does this forum have a preferred Ethereum Pool? Crypto Mega-Thread [A. A Cryptocurrency mining isn't for hobbyists and Ethereum's terrible]. I want to learn about Mining, where to start?
