The Bumpy Road to a mining farm


#1

Wanted to creat this Thread for people with the idea of going big , or at least Starting


This Is the current status of my small Mining farm . Max Capacity 70 kw of power for future rigs.
8 x 1070Ti (ZEC)
13 x 1070 (ZEC)
24 x 1060 6 g (ZEC / ETH /UBIQ)
5 x 1060 3g (UBIQ)
4 x RX580 4g (MONERO)
8 x RX Vega 64 (MONERO)


Bitcoin Private - Pub Mining Pool
Simple mining. Rig Groups + miner options
HI @everyone I would love some help on GPU mining

This is my Newest Rig 8 x RX Verga 64 (Monero “Monster”)


And its a true Monster 1950 Watts of Raw Power :zap::sunglasses:


6 x Vega 64 new rig. Please help me to set up

soooo mannnyyy hashes! :star_struck:

Wow! Do you have a special facility, it’s probably noisy.

-------------------------RX VEGA 56/64 SETUP-----------------------------------------------------

For anyone who is interested this is what im using as software , Just follow the instructions from this great tutorial RX Vega Setup .
And P.S. dont toggle the memory , just deactivate the cards and reactivate again in the device manager of windows , you will save a lot of time , and some times you have to install the drivers several time in a row until the system figures out its life.:grinning:

The Room is not at home , I have a special room
With 70 kw of power reserves .

Didn’t you already post this stuff? How does this thread differ from the previous ones with your information in it?


#9

Yes i did, just i wanted to provide in one post all the problems , and solutions i went threw over time . also to help others with some information. ( Not OK ?)


#10

---------------------------------GTX 1070TI Settings --------------------------------------------
For the 8 x 1070 TI RIG im using the following

8 x Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G
AsRock H110 PRO BTC+
2 x Corsair HX1200

------------------------- Settings and Watts -------------------------------------------
Power Limit 65%
Core Clock +200
Memory Clock +700
Fan 60%

Total Power at the wall 1040 Watts

------------------------ Software ------------------------------------
This is the Mining Software im using , its a bit better than Claymor


#11

I mean sure if that is the route you are taking I would suggest providing that commentary with your pictures to explain the problems you had and the solutions. Right now it just seems like a picture and rig stat post which is covered in multiple threads.


#12

----------------------AsRock H110 Pro BTC+ Problem -----------------------------
One Problem that i encounterd was the shorting of the PCIE extenders due to the narrow spacing of the PCIE slots , as also mentioned in an other post so first i put tape on them , and then used a thread rode as a spacer, now everything sits tight and does not wobble around , or even get pulled out by accident.


#13

--------------------Wonky Cabels -------------------------
I dont know why but for some resone in one order i have a bunch of USB3 kabels that dont work.
All the Black cabels dont work , but the blue ones are ok.

-------------------------------Wonky Riser Diagnostics -----------------------

For people that are just starting with mining , and have problems that not all cards are listed in the device manager and you are trying to figure out witch card is not working, this is what i do.

1- When the system boots (just before it opens the desktop) look if there is a fan running on one of the cards(except Aero/Turbo/blower) If the card is not registered then the system can not regulate the fan witch means all cards that are ok , the fans will turn off when windows starts up (Before MSI afterburner or any other OC Software ) and the card that is not registered will keep running.

  1. If you are using a card (Aero / Turbo /Blower Fan) wait until windows and then MSI afterburner started .
    Then open up MSI Afterburner and toggle the fan speed from Max to Min , the card that does not change its fan speed is the one that is not registered.

3- Swap the cards between each other and look if the problem goes with the card
if it goes with the card , then there i probably a problem with the grafik card.

If not then try point 4.

4- Once you found the problem card , Check all cables , Power, USB and so on --> change the USB Cable --> change the Riser on the grafik card -->change the PCIE adapter .

-----------------VEGA 64 UPDATE-------------------------------------
So after a week or so of mining Monero with the Vega 64 I have to say im quite happy with the result , But there are a few problems , The main one being that every time the system hangs and you have to restart the system , you will have to Manually adjust all the parameters in wattman .
But luckally i came acrose this Youtube post .
And here are the results
1 --More stable it has been running until now ( 4 days) and going with out any problems.
2 – Less power (on a 8 card rig i shaved of 250 watts)
3 – Higher and more stable hash rates (constant 2000 h/s per card XMR)


#16

How often are you having to restart the system?


#17

Hi ImaginaryPi
Before I did the update like explained above I had a crash every 2 days , now I’m at day 6 and no restart , I used the 1100 register and I adjusted the Temperatur to 55 C


#18

Crashes every 2 days! That had to be a pain.


#19

O ja , it was a real pain also since i switched all my rigs over to simple mining os (except the vega rig) every thing is running alot better.


#20

Any reason you didnt go for ASIC’s?

Secondly, where do you get those racks? They look good for my needs.
