Main View Rig Buttons
It shows the current temperature state of one ore more components. If it turns red, one or more components are overheated. This button shows if the rig is up to date. It will turn red if there is a pending update. It presents the state of the rigs drive. It will turn red, and it will display a message (on mouseover), That "There is not enough space, and should consider upgrading". If this appears on your rig, it means that you should use a bigger drive for the Operating System. (Using a 32GB+ drive is Recommended). It shows if the OS files are in working order. If there is an issue with the OS, it will turn red. For this, it is recommended to format and rewrite the OS on the drive. It presents the state of the RAM memory (Swap OK). If it turns red, it will display a message (on mouseover), that "The rig is swapping, and consider adding more RAM". Using 4GB+ of RAM is recommended, depending on the GPU count. This is for rebooting your rig remotely. Also there is an option in the Setting Menu, that activated will Automatically Reboot your rig for you, if it detects a problem. Clicking this, will display the status of your rig, if it has errors or not.
It lets you know if you are Dual Mining or not. If you press it, it will turn red, and you will block Dual Mining for your current rig.
Also you can block Dual mining on separate components, of your rig, without the need of blocking Dual Mining for your entire rig.
By clicking this you either allow your rig to get updates, or block it from getting updates, just by a simple click. Pressing this, DELETES a rig from your account.
The red "Core Speed" button shows the current frequency speed of you core. You can manipulate the Overclock or Downclock of the core, just by clicking and sliding it up or down.
Same goes for the "Memory Speed" button. It show the current frequency of the memory, and you can manipulate it as you wish.
With this button you can decrease the Power Consumption of your GPUs, just by clicking it, and sliding it up or down.
This button allows you to undervolt your GPU. It is only available for AMD GPUs.
You can increase or decrease the GPUs fan speed.
It presents the temperature of the GPU. It turns red if it overheats.
You can enable or disable Dual Mining for a GPU.
The "Miner Output" button, shows you Live and a more detailed view of your GPU output. (ex: Speed, Temperature, Fan, Total Shares, Accepted or rejected shares, DAG Epoch, Pool Diff, etc).
You can block or unblock your GPU or CPU from mining.
Overclock Profile. You can create an overclock profile for a specific rig, or for more rigs. The OC Profile will be automatically added to the specific rig or rigs, or to the rigs that share the same GPU vendor or model.
It appears only if a component is faulty. It also shows up on the component. Rig Information. By clicking this button, you will be shown all of the info/specs of the mining rig. It will turn red if there are miner updates. It is an automatic process, it doesn't need any exterior actions to be taken.
How to bring the GPUs to a stable Overclock.
To bring the cards to a stable overclock, it is important that they are part of the same model if the cards are from AMD.
1. You can start by blocking the cards from mining and leaving only one to make the overclock settings, until it is stable.
- Once stable, make the same changes for the rest of the cards, and unblock them from mining. -
2. Start the rig with one card. Make the overclock settings until stable.
- Once stable, add the rest of the cards, making the same OC settings as the first card. -
To learn about the interface buttons see here.
When the GPU count is orange, it means that there are still PCI-e slots available and GPUs can still be added, until the limit is reached. GPU count limit reached.
This is how you define a pool for mining on Nanopool.org:
- Add the name you are going to mine (ETH Nanopool);
- Choose the algorithm you are going to use (ethash);
- Add your wallet address;
- Add the hostname of the pool (eth-eu1.nanopool.org);
- Add the port (9999);
- Choose the protocol (stratum+tcp);
- Add a password only if the pool requires it. On Nanopool.org you do not need a password.
- Click Add New Pool.
Using the steps above, you can define pools for other coins too. Example SiaCoin.
This is how you add a pool if you are mining on Suprnova.cc:
- Add the name of your pool (Decred Suprnova);
- Choose the algorithm (blacke14r);
- Add the username you signed up on surpnova.cc followed by a random word, or the coin you are mining, in our case Decred (Adrian_D2705.Decred) That will be the name of our worker.;
- Add the hostname (eth.suprnova.cc);
- Add the port (3252);
- Choose the protocol (stratum+tcp);
- Click on Add New Pool.
In the Menu panel, select Dual Mining option. There you can pick what algorithm (coin) can be mined in dual mining.
As you can see there are:
Once picked, you will see 2 hashrates on the GPUs.
For mining Ethereum and Decred, you need to create an account on Suprnova.cc
Once created you will add the username in your wallet section in the pool defining seen above.
On the suprnova.cc account, in the My account menu, you will add your worker.
(In my example Decred and password: x ).
After adding the worker, or workers, it should look like this.
The coins that can mined along with Ethereum or Ethereum Classic are:
For best performance we recommend using the following system specifications:
CPU must be minimum dual core (preferred Quad Core or up if you plan to CPU mine as well)
RAM memory should be at least 4GB for optimal performance. More ram may be required if you have more than 6 gpus or if you are mining algorithms that require more ram.
For storage is highly recommended to use a SSD of at least 32GB or a regular HDD. If you use a USB flash drive be sure it`s a high speed USB 3.0 and at least 32GB of storage, even thogh we do not recommend using USB drives at all
Be warned that if you use a USB Flash drive, data is likely to get corrupted after a while, thus forcing you to reflash the img file again using the provided guides.
Be sure to choose either a SSD, HDD or USB for you mining rig. You cannot have more than 1 drive per rig.
