My 3080 finally arrived. I'm mining with 2 3070's and one 3080 now, running at 216 mH/s.
The 3080 clearly produces more heat than the 3070's.
I switched from converting the ETH's to RNV and I'm now keeping the ETH.\
Slowly working on a HODL portfolio

Looking forward to the effect of EIP 1559 on the mining fee. Whatever the effect is, I will mine whatever is most profitable.
In january Ravencoin will be halving. That might be interesting considering what the halving has done with bitcoin.

I found out about Helium mining a couple of days ago. I really like the concept behind it and saw that Helium miners are out-of-stock currently Does anyone have experience with it?

Hey all

I think I am at my final configuration for a while. Currently have 8 GPU's listed below. Added Server power supplies. Currently at 625 MHs. Upgraded to electric to 20 amp circuit to handle the power. Had to upgrade after I put the Christmas lights up and kept blowing the fuse.

I have enough bandwidth to add a couple more cards however, this would require ventilation to handle the heat. Actually saved on heat this winter by keeping the basement door open. The AC should keep it in check this summer.

Robert


Rig GPU's.
  • 3070 TI x 1
  • 3070 x 1
  • 3080 TI x 3
  • 3080 x 2
  • 3060 TI x 1

Couple of updates on miners for ETH.
  • Nicehash relased a new version of QuickMiner which unlock's 100% of LHR cards. The downside is it only for Windows. You can read about it in their blog : https://www.nicehash.com/blog/post/100-lhr-unlock-at-nicehash-its-here
  • T-Rex latest version .025.15 unlocks 80% of hashrate. I updated my rigs today and it increased by 45 Mhs. If your using HiveOS then its recommended you update to latest version. Nvidia driver needs to be updated to at least 470.103.01. See instructions below on how to update. T Rex needs to be updated to .025.15. This can be updated from the Flight sheet.

If your using Windows are Linux then the latest version can be downloaded here: https://trex-miner.com/

The overclock settings had to be updated after the update. I suggest watching this video at the bottom of this post. He has all the settings for the different Nvidia cards. Applies to all OS versions.

Updating the Nvidia driver in HiveOS: see screenshot below; Once you have the Shell in a Box open then run the command nvidia-driver-update --list. Type in the version of nvidia driver to update and hit enter. Sometimes it looks likes its not doing anything.. especially if your booting from a USB. Just let it sit and it will eventually finish.

Robert

***Edit: after doing further reading it appears all the developers know how to bypass the LHR. Nicehash was the first to the finish line. The rest are working on stability. This is great news!

@DavidHP

Congrats on the breaking ground! Keep us updated on the progress!

I hit breakeven a couple a months ago. I made some speculative buys in some alt coins and did very well. I am paying for electricity out of pocket. Right now its all profits. I am tempted to buy some additional cards but with ETH 2.0 I am just waiting to see what happens.

T-Rex has released a full unlock of LHR with ver 0.26.1. Upgraded my rigs and have added 170 mh/s total.
