Maybe we could start a team and encourage other overclockes to join lol.

It would be like BONIC and FAH, except more selfish.

Wow LTC... $16 lol

c'mon LTC follow BTC... skyrocket!

Now I need another GPU.. at least one more, maybe 2 if it holds this price or goes higher. biggrin.gif

I'm on give-me-coins.com

LTC is sure on a roll lately...

Makes the profits more decent even for a single GPU system before difficulty rises.

Don't stop there... I heat my entire house with mining rigs.

Hi all! Long time lurker, first time poster here. smile.gif I am looking for info on mining, and whilst there is a plethora of data on the subject, there's many conflicting views that I'm hoping someone can straighten out for me. For the most part, I'm interested in Litecoin & some sort of cpu mining which can run concurrently for the two systems I have at my disposal. Both are reasonably good overclocker's, and likewise, I have a pair of decently oc'ing gpu's to use with them.


The faster of the pair is a water cooled 4.8 Ghz 3570k with a 7950 TF3 that pops off a 24/7 stable 1290/1740 oc. Unfortunately, the mobo lost it's pci-e slot during a UEFI reset, and I'm waiting on AsRock to complete the RMA at the moment.

The secondary is a 4.3 Ghz 1090T under water, that hits 3200+ NB with a decent FSB oc, & an unlocked 6950 @ 925/1500 on the factory HS.



My questions are:


1.) Which is the most efficient o/s for mining? I have at my disposal win 8.1 x64, win 7 x64, win 7 lite, XP x64, XP x86, and a bunch of Linux distro's. Both are currently dual booting, soooo... Additionally, I can slipstream a win x64 install if you think it will help.

2.) How much system memory does cpu mining need, & does it benefit at all from running very fast memory?

3.) Disk I/O speeds, any difference overall? I have several ssd's, a velociraptor, a sshd, and some plain Jane 7200/5400 rpm drives to use. What's the best/most efficient configuration?

4.) Which mining & pool is the best in your opinion for cpu (I'm aware of beeeeer being the best for Primecoin, but if there's any other type of cpu mining that's of greater viablity that can run concurrently with gpu mining...). Also what have you found is the best pool for Litecoin?

5.) Since I am down one mobo at the moment, can I run the 7950 simultaneously with the 6950, and should I run separate instances of the gpu miner program for each? Secondly, if so, how can I oc both cards independently? Never tried that before, so I'm a little in the dark on that.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

6.) This is specifically directed at IvanLabrie. I've dl'd CgiMiner 2.11.4 as you recommended, along with the Catalyst 12.8 driver. My question is how it compares with Reaper? Although, I suspect that I already know the answer based on your earlier recommendation, I would just like confirmation if you don't mind.



Thanks for any help you guys can give, and have a great day! smile.gif

i agree with this !

I'm gonna fill my basement with GPUs. When my dad asks me to pay him the electricity, I'll ask him to pay me the heating (natural gas).

Here's a thought: The wprld is a better place without logs. (I'm not talking about fire wood).

Edit: So what's the best pool for mining litecoins right now? Let's all join one pool and see how much of the total pool hash power we can generate.

I get a constant 730 out of my 280x's (7970's)

Sorry for double post!!!

At what clocks?

with those settings im maxing out at ~660kh/s with 950/1800

Try bumping your core clock up. I was getting 750+ @ 1080/1800. I always multiply my memory clock by 0.6 to get the core clocks for my 7970s and have always gotten good results.
