GTX 750 Ti mining - Page 20

post #191 of 1291
My Zotac reference 750 Tis perform better than my ASUS 6-pin models...Made me a sad panda...since the ASUS models were $10 more expensive. The ASUS MEM CLK's wouldn't OC worth a ****. The Zotac MEM CLK is much more flexible...just my experience.

BTW, Windows 8.1 x64 was causing my scalability issues...now getting 1740 kH/s on 6 750 Tis on the USB 3.0 x1 riser cable assemblies.

Is there a CLI for MSI AB? I need to automate my tuned over clocks for each card individually. I have all of the information in a spreadsheet, but still have to spend 1-2 mins manually setting and applying everything.

That's good to know. I went for the EVGA OC because of no pins, and because it's EVGA tongue.gif

Setting up Cudaminer on Linux sounds daunting though lol

it really does, people love to bash AMD linux drivers but setitng up OpenCL was alot easier than the guides i've seen to get cuda to work.

I will have to do it eventually though because I really don't like windows for production machines.
Thank god I can run BAMT for the dozens of 280x's I have.


Problem with linux is we need software to overclock or for someone to show us how to change clocks in bios for the 750 ti.

I had pmed that skyn3t guy on here that is an nvidia bios guy but he wasn't interested in helping us redface.gif

As efficient in mining as a 270
Dissapointment

Just saying they really aren't all that efficient for mining yet. No need to patronize me.

Clearly you should be mining something different than Litecoin aka standard scrypt.

I don't even use BAMT. I followed the Cryptobadger guide mostly and have been running Xubuntu on an old Athlon 64 system and Cgminer 2.11. Mining has been a breeze for the most part. I was just stumped when it came to Vertcoin and solo mining on Linux. I like doing all of that through SSH. With Windows as a remote machine I feel more "locked out" as it's not as simple to control them remotely.

For litecoin mining, which gpu's are more energy efficient than a R9 270 and a GTX 750 Ti?

Just saying it doesn't completely dethrone the 270 in normal scrypt, let's wait for cuda mining to get better.
post #200 of 1291
Well boys and girls, I've made some progress.

Currently here is my setup:

2x Zotac Reference 750 Ti
4x ASUS OC'd+PCIe-6pin 750 Ti
ASUS Z87-Pro
Intel Core-i5 4670k
4GB DDR3 1333MHz
1kW PSU
6x x1 USB3 Riser Cable Asemblies
Old Seagate 320GB HDD

I have identified two separate issues.

#1 PCIe x1-mode performance for Cudaminer
Cudaminer apparently has a high PCIe bandwidth utilization...thus when going from x16 mode to anything lower, as you get closer to x1 mode (risers or not), you're going to see degradation of performance (10-30 kH/s for 750 Ti in my experience). Cudaminer author is apparently going to be working to fix this ASAP since he'll soon be operating a 750 Ti rig with riser assemblies.


#2 Windows 8.1x64 + > 2 GPUs = scaling disaster: With six GPU's loaded, I could not get > 1400 kH/s. Seeing as how there has been anecdotal evidence of others having success at scaling GPUs in windows, this was perplexing to me. Additionally, the system felt realllly unstable with all of the cards at stock speeds...seemed like just having six cards running at once was asking too much for W8.1x64+Nvidia driver. I tried Ubuntu 12.04 x64...that seemed to scale OK, as I could get ~1600 kH/s, but I was stock at ~stock performance. I learned how to increase the MEM CLK with Kepler BIOS Tweaker, and that helped a little bit and was what allowed me to hit 1600 kH/s. Main issue with a Linux solution is abysmal OC capabilities. Ain't nobody got time for that. Finally it hit me...these guys on these forums aren't paying for Windows licenses, they're torenting Windows 7 off of BT. They, unlike me, don't have readily available MSFT product keys to throw away. That is what bit me in the ass. I installed WIndows 7 x64...sure enough...GPU's scaled, system is buttery stable, and now I could individually tune my GPUs with individual over clock settings ala MSI AB. This is how I now achieve ~1760 kH/s on six cards.

I've accepted that my investment in ASUS 750 Ti's was a bad choice, and I'm dealing with it. The MEM CLK's wont OC well at all compared to the Zotac Cards. Cooling is not an issue nor is availability of power.
