I moved to RVN over the last few weeks. Cards are making as much there as they were on eth. Will be interesting to see where it goes when Eth goes POS and inevitably climbs in price causing RVN to follow.
Whattomine says RVN underperforming ETH. That not right?I moved to RVN over the last few weeks. Cards are making as much there as they were on eth. Will be interesting to see where it goes when Eth goes POS and inevitably climbs in price causing RVN to follow.
I had a few thousand in RVN before the drop and by some miracle sold it 2 days before it plummeted.
I stopped looking a the shuffle.Not setting the world on fire, but the cards are already paid off. Stacking and holding. I’ve lost interest in acquiring more cards because of summer heat, and LHR version cards now being the norm. I’ll sit on what I have. If I mine for a couple years on these cards I should earn a BTC. If the BTC is worth $60k when I sell it, it’s a great investment.

So I have 3 different brand 3080s that require different settings, a 3060 that needs a specific driver to get full hashrate, and a 6800. Is it possible to run it all or most of them on a single rig? All Dagger hashimoto? I have all the hardware finally, risers PSUs etc, I just don't know how to make them all work together in nicehash with individual settings. Right now they are all running in separate PCs
Were you using the overclock settings built in nice ass or were using MSI afterburner etc?As long as your are not running the NH quick miner you can control the clocks / fans / power on each card individually using MSI afterburner or similar. You can even run both AMD and NVIDIA cards in the same rig running the same algorithm, but I have found that mixing AMD and NVIDIA in the same rig can sometimes make things a bit less stable so i generally try to avoid that and make my rig either all AMD or all NVIDIA.
I had a miner going for a while that had several 1080ti's a 2070S and a couple 3070's . This was no issue even though these are all different generations and use different overclock settings. I experimented with throwing a Radeon VII in the mix and it worked sometimes, but was more prone to crashing I found.
Just make sure you don't "link" the cards in Afterburner and then you can set each one individually as needed.

If you're using afterburner is it able to select different GPUs to overclock individually?
I can run to AMD card on a separate PC.
I think i heard somewhere when doing multiple GPUs on a single PC you have to attach to one by one rebooting between them?
Great! I was hoping MSI was able to select cards individually.No I do not use the built in nicehash overclock or the quick miner. I use Afterburner. Yes it lets you select each GPU to overclock individually.
I would assume your card is under warranty, but waiting on that is money lost in terms of mining profits. I would pull the bad fan and search for the model online and buy it as that would be the cheapest method other than pulling the whole shroud and zip tie a few 120MM fans on there. As long as you don't modify it in a way that would deny warranty you can always use it like that for now and then put in a claim sometime later before the third year of warranty is up.
I do have it installed, but this is a defective fan. When I took the GPU out of the case to look at it isn't free spinning like the others anymore.Have you installed Precision X1 with the EVGA card? Some have third fan issues and X1 fixes it. My XC3 still has issues in Hive OS where the third fan doesn't run but it is fine with X1 in windows.
Honestly, with just one 3070 I would give ravencoin a shot. You're not risking much money and it will get you used to handling your payouts, wallets, etc. a lot sooner than ETH would. You'll probably get daily payouts to your ravencoin wallet and that'll let you play around with crypto without wasting a lot of transfer fees or stuff. And if you screw things up, lose your keys, etc. it won't be a huge deal.I started mining yesterday. I just have a single 3070. I'm mining on the ethermine pool. a month ago when I checked whattomine it was like $4 in profit a day, now its less than $3. and ravencoin is climing the chart every day. they changed the payout structure yesterday for ethermine. I'm wondering if I should switch to raven after I get paid, if I ever reach this new threshold. I'm pretty confused lol.
You are only under 7 at current exchange rates.I'm getting to the point I may have to just shut my ghetto rigs down. My profits are at like 7 to 8 bucks a day. this is using nicehash. Maybe I need to use somethng other than nicehash but it is just stupid easy to setup. I need the idiot version of mining. I don't want to jump through hoops, just download something and click go.
Torn, if it goes any lower I might as well sell off the gear while the prices are still inflated. i'd make all my money back and then some.
edit: i'm under 7 right now
rvn is lower today on whattomine, so I guess it depends on the day. eth is up to over $3 today. farming rvn apparently uses another 30 watts on a 3070.Honestly, with just one 3070 I would give ravencoin a shot.
