GPU Coin

post #1 of 62
Thread Starter 
Just figured I'd post this to help people get set up for GPU Coin tonight

Launch is tonight at 10pm GMT or 5pm Eastern

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=469887.0

It's scrypt-n so you will need Vertminer

from - https://www.dropbox.com/s/5n70hj3izjj64y1/vertminer-0.5.3.zip

It comes with bat & config file already that you can just edit

for my bat I am using
Quote:
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1
export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100
vertminer.exe

for config I have
Quote:
,
"api-listen" : true,
"intensity" : "19",
"worksize" : "256",
"auto-fan" : true,
"temp-cutoff" : "80",
"temp-overheat" : "75",
"temp-target" : "70",
"expiry" : "30",
"nscrypt" : true,
"scan-time" : "1",
"thread-concurrency" : "20481",
"gpu-thread" : "1",
"gpu-engine" : "1020",
"gpu-fan" : "50-70",
"lookup-gap" : "2",
"gpu-powertune" : "20",
"gpu-memclock" : "1499"
}

These are settings for my R9 290 tri-x, adjust these setting as per your card (the bat for max alloc may also need adjusting to 200 if you're using a different card google search this yourself)

I'm currently trying to find out if adding
Quote:
"gpu-fan" : "50-70",
will be recognised in vertminer as I don't like my fans going too high, they get too loud for my liking

Also if you have issues get vertminer to work then revert all settings to stock in the config, apparantly it can throw hissy fits if you overclock in the config file and prefers being clocked via the in program commands

For Pools I've found http://gpu.poolerino.com/index.php which seems to be good, they also run PROP payouts so you don't have to stay a long time to get good rewards (PPLNS pays better the longer you're mining in the pool)

I'll update as I find more info

Update:

Gpu-fan setting does work, you can delete sharethreads if you don't want it (I don't know what it does but have been told it's fine to delete)

Also some settings for other cards
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Quote:
It works the same way as classic miners, input your info in the conf file or directly in the bat file.
CAUTION: the Vertminer on this page comes with a default .conf file, delete it if you put all your settings in the .bat file!

The settings are different than on classic Scrypt for most cards and you need 8GB of system RAM for best results if you have multiple cards. Here are some .bat settings that work for me:

280X at about 370KH/s (8GB System RAM):
Quote
color 0A
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 200
vertminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://yourpool.com:port -u nick.worker -p pass -I 13 -g 2 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 8193 --gpu-memclock 1500 --gpu-engine 1050 --gpu-fan 50-90

HD7950 at about 315KH/s (12GB System RAM):
Quote
color 0A
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 200
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
vertminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://yourpool.com:port -u nick.worker -p pass -I 19 -w 256 --thread-concurrency 19712 -g 1 --gpu-fan 60-90 --gpu-powertune 10 --gpu-memclock 1485 --gpu-engine 1080

Find another scrypt-n coin and mine it for a little while, you could try vertcoin wink.gif

What settings are you using ?

IF you're using bat + config then only put those settings for bat I posted otherwise deleted config file and put settings via bat file like you would cgminer smile.gif

I remember having the same issue weeks ago while using the AMD 13.12 drivers. As soon as I updated to 14.1, everything worked fine. I can't guarantee nothing else was responsible for the change, but that's just my experience. What driver version are you using?
