Just Plain Mean
- May 18, 1997
Finally go off my lazy bum and got some cards back in action after Sparkpool went kaput with the rest of the CCP action.
I’ve used Ethermine, 2miners, Hiveon and Flexpool and I think I might just move back to Flexpool soon and pay for HiveOS.i've tried hiveon, ethermine and flex. I feel ethermine and flex have been the best. Have you visited miningpoolprofits.com?
No, and honestly I do not pay much attention to this. I asked someone I trusted on this, and they told me what they are doing and I followed.i've tried hiveon, ethermine and flex. I feel ethermine and flex have been the best. Have you visited miningpoolprofits.com?
Started yesterday with nicehash using an EVGA FTW3 3080 and I've made $5.57 from 5 payouts(4hour intervals) with the optimizer on medium. Tried high twice and it crashed instantly. I have a hybrid cooler for the GPU I wonder if that would help much?
Thats about what I'll be getting after I pay the utility bill. Not to bad either way. What program do you use?You have to tweak the settings. I have a 3080 that I run at ~230W tops and nets me right around $5/day. The program I use lets me tweak each individual setting for each algorithm.

Cool, I'm gonna look into thisNicehash Miner Legacy Fork Fix.
It does everything that the regular NH program does except it throws back in a couple miners that NH doesn't like anymore like Phoenix and T-rex. It adds autolykos as an algorithm which isn't in the regular program. And it allows you to manually adjust each specific miner/algorithm with its own settings in afterburner. I can also go in and replace the miner files with the newest ones (NBMiner and T-rex) so I get higher hash rates than the included ones.
I have much better results with T-rex than with NBMiner for ETH mining, but NBMiner is much better at autolykos than T-rex. I can enable only the algorithms I want and then tweak the settings to get maximum efficiency.
I'm wondering if that one card is being used for a different algorithm right now. Pretty sure Nicehash pops all around depending on what people are buying.Are you using nicehash? It sounds like the 4th one isn't getting the same hashrate as the others for whatever reason. I hear nicehash does a pretty good job of setting overclocks but Asus 1080TIs are weird when it comes to overclocking. Your 3080 should be getting more than double your 1080TIs if it's setup correctly.
For income, look at the bars on this graph. Difficulty is currently increasing and price has been decreasing for ETH, so you should expect to see income & profits drop steadily.

If all you're doing is mining eth, you should have moved to T-Rex ages ago. Personal opinion, sure, but I found I was able to do about 10% more per day.so all my 1080s are on NHQM. I need to start getting them off QM into the normal one so it can start algo switching to whatever is best but I haven't had the time and almost don't have the will power to figure out all the settings to use. I'm thinking of switching them all to T-Rex or NBMiner.
My 3080 is an LHR card and the LHR unlock works well with it.
All my cards are daggerhashimoto right now. the quick miner ONLY runs that. my 3080 does jump to octopus also but when it does, it seems the profits plummet even more than if it just stayed on dagger. its like it benchmarks higher, switches, and the benchmark was just way off. I haven't figured that out.

Even with my 3080 LHR I was able to get 71. Not near the 100 the FHR gets, but better than the 64 I was getting before.
I ran on whatever was newest at the time. Definitely wasn't the 471 driver.that is what I'm learning. I can't seem to get my 3080 past maybe 66. it doesn't seem to like to OC. Probably just a bad card for it. I'm in the process of getting Trex working again in NH on my 3080 computer. I need to downgrade the nvidia driver also back to 471.whateveritwas.

I was able to overclock the memory to 1000, while some were able to get 1300. I wasn't able to touch the core though, iirc.
I *think* the power slider was at 55%, but I could be thinking about my 2070 cards.
The only reason I know it wasn't 471.xx is because when I used that driver on my 1080, Fortnite would always warn me that the 471.xx driver has known issues, on every bootup. I never saw that message on my 3080.yea with LHR cards, there a specific driver that does a little bit better than the newer ones. I have to look it up again. it s 471.something.
a 1080TI doesn't hit 65MHs, so that doesn't make sense.I swapped my 3080lhr to t-rex ( through NH) and it runs exactly the same as everything else. i guess I just have a dud of card. it maxes at 65/66 no matter what OC and LHR settings I use. The first pump says like 75 and immediately it just drops to 65ish after. Its profitibility, according to nicehash, is like way worse that a 1080ti which I still don't get.
its running close to how much a 1080 is making.
It's going to depend a lot on what happens then when all the GPU miners start looking for a new coin. That will likely impact the current profitability of those coins as their difficulty increases.anyone explain to me a bit more how the profits work on mining cards?
So my profitability has been dropping and what I'm seeing is just a weird spread between similar cards.
so 3 of my 1080tis can be at like $2.30 a day, the 4th one, running the same hash rates gets 1.70 a day. At the same time, my 3080 at a hash rate more than 30 more than a 1080ti is only getting like 2.60 cents a day...
My average daily for a very long time was in the .0004xx range BTC and it has been dropping, I'm at like .00031xx average now.
Also, what are people going to do if/when ETH stops being minable? I'm lost at this point. I want to expand, I can only do so slowly but what the best move with the ETH mining ending, possibly, middle of the year?
a 1080TI doesn't hit 65MHs, so that doesn't make sense.
My experience in trying a half dozen different pools is nicehash is the easy button and profits are darn near anything else. I have eight cards mining. The 3080s are launch units and they hit 100MHs, the 3060TI and 3070s all hit 58-60mhs. They are all reliable. The rig just runs and runs and runs - almost a year now with hardly any maintenance, troubleshooting or down time.
Ya profit is not the best thing to monitor, all I really watch is my reported hash rate but I mine on a pool and don’t use nicehash.
my thing is where do I go to have an easy way to manage all my hodge podge cards in one place? that was reason I was on nicehash plus the QM just worked. I've spent the last 4 hours trying to tweak cards to not use the QM and some of them I got to the same hash rate using T-rex. It was not enjoyable. I still have 2 cards to do.
Some how excavator in QM can get the same hash rates with less power and I can't figure that out. I can get them equal at about 215-220 watts, QM was like 195. Sick of messing with settings for now
So at least of 5 of my 7 cards they are all on the same miner now so if I get away from nicehash I at least know what cards settings to use. I do wish I could find an explanation of the --MT parameter. it tweaks memory timings, you give it a value of 1 to 6 but I can't find anything that says what it actually changes. Doesn't seem to change the hashrates regardless of which value I use. The --MT command is supposed to be like using the EthPill.
