First off if you have this problem you have to make sure that your motherboard bios supports and you must selecte PCI-Express Generation 2 (Gen2) as default for all PCI-E slots. Motherboards with only Generation 1 PCI-E may or may not work depending on the video card manufacturer. If you have setup Generation 2 PC-E then make sure all risers are not damaged at all, check the 1x PCI-E connector from all your risers as well. Make sure all your components are powered on correctly and that your PSU has enough power on the PCI-E rail for all the connected componenets.Read more...
Why do I see (rev xx)
This is the revision number of a certain component, specifically video cards have different revision numbers when they are produced and thus some small settings may differ from one rev to another and small performance differences. Although some of these revisions have differences between them, it will not be a huge impact on the component performance.
A rig can disappear only in 2 scenarios:
- you have manually deleted it from the list
- the rig was not found online for the past 30 days in which case it gets pruned by the system
The speed that you see in the rigs table is the one reported by the miner and it may not be the same speed that you see on the pool because of different pool implementations.Read more...
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:
If you have not opted for a prepaid solution in favor of a fee based one you are probably asking how is the fee calculated.Read more...
The answer is very simple, every 24h the system will choose random from your components and will mine the equivalent time with your package % fee. The process is totally random and automatic. Depending on the amount of components you can see one or more components fee mining at any giving time.
Every 24h cycle all the components will be chosen for mining
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. -
