OMG?!! What is this?
Joking with that "OMG what is this" I believe in you all guys! I whis you Great success!!!
Was the nano overclocked? which gpu do u recommend nano or fury (not the furyx). or in other words which of these more high end gpu gets better results with decreds algorithm?
The 660ti will better than 750 ti In my impression
In gaming GTX 660 Ti(Kepler) is better than GTX 750 Ti(Maxwell) but in mining 750 Ti is way better in hashrate and it also needs much less power than GTX 660 Ti.
In general NVIDIA Kepler GPUs are a disappointment in mining but Maxwell GPUs are decent and they also have good power efficiency most of the times. I don't think that will change with Decred mining.
very good 6.4GH / s - 6.9GH / s on the AMD Radeon R9 295X2
Why do i have imac
in Brazil this ta costing almost 6k. A stab.
Does anyone have any idea how much it will be 1 decred market at introduction?
I found this note:
Decred cost will expensive than ripple ,because Decred is better than Ripple. XRP have 33Billion supply according to http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ripple/ , Decred only have 21 Million supply. Decred price will be start from $0,49 see https://blog.companyzero.com/2015/12/decred-rethink-digital-currency/ for more explanation
Thank you, I had not seen this topic.
So for nvidia i need to use cgminer for blake?
ccminer maybe better for nvidia
Having heard of bitcoin only a month ago, as I listen to the hum of my Antminer S7 while typing this request, GPU mining is not yet in my repertoire.
From the posts thus far, it appears prudent to wait to get a video card until additional data is available. In the meantime, for someone starting from scratch, would a veteran be able to post a recommendation for motherboard, CPU, power supply, etc. to get started with the build. I intend to run Windows.
I would hope to spend ~ $500 on the initial components and another $X on the GPU once the soon-to-be-available data is here. If permitted in the forum, links to newegg/Amazon/tiger direct would be helpful.
Thanks, in advance, for any support in this regard. Looking forward to contributing even a small piece to the network infrastructure.
So cgminer and ccminer for blake and blakecoin algo will work on decred?
You will need:
- any cheap motherboard with 4+ PCI-E slots (PCI-E x1 are enough). I personally like ASRock Pro BTC series and ASRock Xtreme4 series, though those are not so cheap
- a bunch of PCI-E x1 - x16 Risers.
- any cheap CPU for your motherboard.
- 4Gb RAM per rig usually is OK, 8Gb is overkill but fine too.
- Gold or Platinum rated PSUs with single 12V rail. DO NOT go cheap here - good and efficient power supply is critical for any mining activities. Buy 750W minimum. It is common practice to combine two 750/850W PSUs on one rig via special adapter, because single 1350+ PSU is usually more expensive than two 750s, and it's harder to resell in the future.
- good electricity wiring in your house. Be careful and do not overload it - you don't want to burn down your home.
And finally, of course, a lot of videocards. AMD ones preferrably. Best for price are used 7950 / R9 280 / 7970 / R9 280X. Hawaii (R9 290/290X) are good too. I wouldn't recommend latest Fiji ones, because they suck for mining concerning their heavy price.
As for time proven brands - there are many good ones, especially ASUS and MSI. But avoid Gigabyte at all costs - they go for cheaper price instead of quality.
In the end, don't forget to think where and how you will place your cards. You'll need some kind of aluminium or plastic open stand, with enough space to leave about 10-12cm between cards for cooling.
No Brasil facada msm
Regarding a psu I m planning to buy cooler master v750, good? Also what about xfx and sapphire gpus? Since the gpu i want to buy is from xfx.
Also a noob question, im going to buy an extra fan which u can just put it on the ground, does it matter which angle i point it towards the gpu?
CoolerMaster v750 is excellent.
XFX is shit, sorry: it's complete random whether your xfx's will work long or will break in first months.
Sapphires are OK: their cooler fans can die after about 1,5-2 years of non-stop working, but that is not a big deal at all - fans can be changed easily.
Extra fan should be placed in direction to blow away air from between cards. May be I'll post a picture if I find one.
Thanks, so i might go for sapphire.
Regarding direction of the fan, here is a picture i found. Which direction would i have to point the fan in this case? Note that my mother board is in its case layed down on the ground like the picture, only there is no roof. (cus i don't know how to make it a complete open case)
Thanks for the detailed reply, fRee_.
It sounds like to get started, I could repurpose my 5-year old Dell desktop, which has a free PCI-E slot, if I replace the power supply with a 500W and add just a single high quality AMD GPU? Any concerns?
