if your going single tower or almost anything other then hyper212, if you want a quality air cooler that will last years to come and is worth mounting get a noctua or a phanteks.

If you want some real overclock power get a double tower otherwise you wont get over 4.5ghz if your lucky.

Something like this:

http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=34&lng=en

If you want to sacrifice and get the 212 it is cheaper and actually does perform better then most (of the single towers it will not outperform the doubles). But its IMO still not worth it. Id rather have something that performs slightly worse thats atleast a decent quality mounting system.

I recommended the 212 cause he said he wasn't overclocking. I only mentioned that you can do a mild overclock with said cooler. I understand there see better air coolers out there, but if you are not overclocking or only bumping speeds up slightly then the 212 it's hard to beat price/performance wise.

Also, how are you managing to power that CPU? 220W tdp iirc. The largest tdp I could find was 140W when I built this computer earlier this year. (The TA970 I have is a stellar board for the $80 I paid for it, just has that goofy 16x4x crossfire support, which blows)

EDIT: by largest tdp of 140, I mean, the largest motherboard tdp, not CPU

How is it cooled? It's a long story that started last April when I got this case. I have spent a lot of time in the air cooling forum learning what it takes. Basically it has 4 intake fans in front and a big gaping hole in the back. Then there is the Silverstone Heligon HE01 cpu cooler with 2-140x38 @ 140cfm fans. Think of it as a wind tunnel with some electronic stuff in it. And yes that is a large paper towel that got sucked into the front of the case while stress testing.




How is it powered? Well there is the 850w Seasonic psu, and the MSI 990FXA GD80 motherboard is rated for the 9590 with the later bios and runs nice and cool with all that air flow. And it is rated at 220w now.

Figured Id pass along my hours of tinkering and what I have learned about protoshares with you guys.

some of you im sure know already about cryptocoins as its going crazy but there are a few that are actually only mineable with your CPU. I have been mining scrypt coins with my 8350 for weeks and had no clue tongue.gif. PTS (and other cpu coins like prime [xpm] etc) are MUCH more profitable for your CPU then using it for scrypt mining,

After hours of using many different miners almost all of them performed at a worse profit rate then i was getting with scrypt. It took me atleast 12 hours of research and time with different miners/websites to finally find one that actually performed well with the 8350.

The only thing that kinda sucks is with PTS almost all the pools require there miners to be specific to there website. Luckily i found one that can atleast connect to multiple with backup support AND it works best out of all.

Maker is YAM and he has released many different copies of his miner which is a rebuild of jhminer from ypool.net.

I have taken the hours tweaking the settings to get optimal for 8350. Ran through the test cycles to find the best speed and set it to go. Yam has multiple versions for multiple platforms (linux, windows etc) but also has versions for different processors (xeon, core duo, bulldozer). I tried the bulldozer versions (he has like 2-3) and they were not nearly as good as the standard generic version (only tested on windows 64bit).

So after hours of tinkering I have decided to make this simple for anyone who wants to start mining PTS with there 8350. Simply get a protoshare wallet here:

http://protoshares.com/

Then you can signup at ypool.net (i would offer more pools but really this is the only one the miner works with (that i can find feel free to let me know of others) that has a low fee, good servers + it is the biggest pts pool). Same as any other cryptocurrency pool just setup your worker username and pass on the workers page. Then setup your auto-payout on the account page (minimum is 1 PTS which will take about 5-6 days solid farming with an single 8350)

Then all you gotta do is download the miner here:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/c336byq7ss1m25z/yam-yvg1900-M7i-win64-generic.zip

Yes this is my personal upload, I put my reputation on that it is 100% safe with NO viruses. It is simply a repack of the original files with the config pre-setup and the bat file already included. If you want to make your own config from the main mirror you can download from the main website off the ypool.net getting started page. Also its for win64 only.

Simply unzip, right click on yam.cfg and press edit or open with notepad. Insert your worker information from ypool and your walletaddress into the backup pool. The backup pool is pre-setup to mine ptspool.com.. theres no signup at ptspool.com and they simply pay you out based on your wallet address. So if ypool goes down your atleast still earning pts (ptspool has a higher fee [3%] but is one of the few pools that works with this miner and makes a good backup pool with small share sizes). The miner is very good at jumping back to the original pool after it is back up (similar to cgminer fail-over only)

After you finish editing config save and then open yam.bat to start mining! I will warn you a very small amount of your work is donated to the developer. It says everytime it does work for them its like 28 rounds every hour or so? I dont know but the speed that it delivers BY FAR makes up for the slight amount he takes (its quite literally 10 seconds he has a chance to get a share every hour or so im not sure of his actual amount but its very small).

I have tried this miner with beeeeeer.org which is one of the few other famous PTS pools but it would not work. So if theres any other good pools out there im open to suggestions but these seem to be the only that work with the miner and the miner seems to be the only one that works good for vishera.

Hope this helps you all start earning PTS and stop wasting hashpower! Just wanted to pass along what I have come accross to the club biggrin.gif.

If anyone decides to use my config let me know how well it works for you. Also a side tip. Run the ptsminer BEFORE you run gpu miners. Its pre setup to 7 threads which can be decreased in the config file but my PC had no problem running both miners (cpu+gpu) with 7 threads. The reason I say to run ptsminer first is it does have a "huge page" function. that only works if there is alot of free memory. You will see an error if it does not work (right when it starts) and your CPM (similar to kh/s or mh/s but for CPU mining they use CPM) will be lower. It will still work fine without huge pages but it will work a little better if you get it to start correctly. Usually I just restart my PC and run yam.bat first then hwinfo64, cgminer etc.

Also you can increase amount of memory used in the cfg aswell. If you have more then 8gb of ram you should increase as you will likely get more cpm (in the cfg it says m=512 change to m=1024 to double memory use). Also if you have 4gb of mem or less then it likely wont work at all. may need to decrease to m=256

I am currently at 4.6ghz and getting 275 CPM on 7 threads, about 240 CPM on 6 threads. Let me know if your mining PTS with your 8350 and what CPM you get. biggrin.gif

I have no interest whatever in bitcoin mining. I despise that fact that you bit coin miners have driven up the price of AMD gtraphics cards from ther 7950 280 , the 7970 280X, the 290 and 290X. Pitch your bitcoin bs somewhere else.
post #28675 of 67351
seriously os what is going on with your bad mood ? it is a free market, and if bitcoins have allowed prices to stay high, good, time to make something that does it better so you can make monies too !

I'm going to make an educated guess here, but I'd say probably 225-250w under load. Depends on what voltage you're able to run on it as well I think. Anyone have a screenshot with power draw information to back that up?

its entirely about 8350 and pertains to 8350 specifically. I pitched nothing none of it has anything to do with me. I dont have any sort of address to send donations to included in the file i uploaded (as its not my program i would not take from that). I trried not to promote a specific pool but theres really not another option out there.

Also it has nothing to do with GPU mining. Also bitcoins came out years ago and since have switched to asic. scrypt coins now ruined the prices.

PTS coins that are mined with your CPU are not mineable via GPU or ASIC. So this does nothing but help sell 8350 since they are cheap and do a decent cpm tongue.gif. Which could in-tern drive up 8350 prices. But thats good for AMD and gives us better processors in the future. + more members biggrin.gif.

Nothing bad coming from me i assure you just trying to help others get the most out of there 8350's thumb.gif

My goal is to help others who are poor like me make a few bucks off of what we got. Its taken me almost a month to get $150 worth of bitcoin and i was planning on buying a 7950 for $200 but because everyone does it now its not gonna happen. So im not happy the prices are up either tongue.gif. not only did i need it to mine more coins but i wanted to upgrade i thought id never have the chance and now because of mining i do! Time for this poor guy to get a little back tongue.gif. Can you blame me?

understood sorry i jumped in too late havent been on in a bit didnt feel like going through the masses, my apologies. For something cheap and stock clocks its atleast reasonable and quiet. But theres still better options for just a few bucks more IMO Id rather spend a couple bucks for almost anything else. Decent performance is about all that it has going for it. which i dont know how it even accomplished that tongue.gif. I didnt like the blademaster fan either mine started ticking as many others i had seen happen with. So i just wasnt impressed across the board.

But for stock and for a cheap alternative to stock its still a decent possibility. I guess tongue.gif. I regretted it everyday until i found a few bucks to buy a used noctua tongue.gif.

It's cool. Like I said, I know there are much better air coolers out there. Especially when it pertains to cooling these FX chips. That's a big reason why I'm not reusing my 212. I'm going with a closed loop aio. Figured I can get at least 4.8 with it if not higher. But I won't be trying to push it more than 5 GHz. Honestly, I'll be happy with 4.5 for 24/7 use.

Odd I've never come across those two before. I'll research them, but I've kinda fallen in love with the Gemini S524.

Yeah. I know it may seem ironic, or maybe contradictory, that I'm not overclocking, given the site I'm posting on. biggrin.gif But I'm here cause it seems to be one of the best collections of people who know what they're doing.

I'm not overclocking, and I'd prefer everything at stock, to be honest with you. I can put together a computer, but anything beyond that I get nervous (though I do have some friends that can help me in that regard).

With the computer I have in mind to build, I'll use it for surfing the net, video editing (I'll use programs a few tiers below Vegas or Adobe, until I can afford Vegas or Adobe), watching movies, and video games. I'm obsessed with the Diablo series, but beyond that, emulators and Plants vs Zombies 1 and 2.

This may all point to something LESS than an 8350, but, I don't know I just kinda always wanted it.

It's not ironic at all. Everyone is entitled to their own personal tastes, views etc. And the 8320/8350 may seem like a bit overkill now, but you'll be thanking yourself later. For what you listed, either cpu will serve you well for years.

As far as this community goes, I have relied on OCN for all of my tech inquiries ever since I discovered it 5 years ago. I have learned a lot and enjoy passing on that knowledge to others.

Good luck again with your new build and the brotherhood/sisterhood I know as OCN will assist you in any way we can!
