Stock Hashrate for Multiple GPU's
Hello Reddit I'm hoping some people here could post me their Stock Hashrate's and Power Consumption for the cards listed below. I have looked around multiple forums and found multiple answers so I'm trying to collaborate up-to-date information that others will also find useful! From this information, I can work out the Hash per Watt to find the most efficient card for you all. Please post with (if possible): Card > Manufacture and Model (with Ram) > Ethereum Hashrate (Mh/s) > Power Usage > Other Info
Resurrected my old Bitcoin rig for some dedicated LTC mining, FINALLY got it running stable after some serious procrastination studying for finals -__- Evidence!: http://imgur.com/a/K3nYt GPUs: 2x XFX Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition (FX797GTDFC) flashed with this Gigabyte BIOS - http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/127156/gigabytehd7970-3072-120905.html cgminer config: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=s072rzFF Don't listen to anyone who says XFX GPUs are junk; maybe their firmware is, I won't argue that... but using the Gigabyte BIOS above I was able raise my hash rate to ~700 on each card @ 1000/1375 using around 450 watts, vs. ~550 on each card @ 1200/1500 using around 650 watts on the stock firmware!

Instead of a hdd and an ssd i will use raid to speed up the drives. It is cheaper and a friend who uses it told me to do it. I will OC when games no longer run well. Got the i7 for bitcoin and some 3d modeling. 7970 is for games. edit: I will get this http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=614941 mobo paired with the 4770k for 425$ @ microcenter. edit 2: just bought the cpu and mobo and RAm and hdd and ssd @ microcenter. ordered all other parts. Changed the monitor.
I took the plunge - 2x 7970's on their way for potential rig - I have no idea what I'm doing - Help appreciated!
So since this past Spring break, my brother in his all powerful insider knowledge on this strange thing named BitCoins introduced me to this bandwagon. I've since joined in and bought all I could muster with the funds in my bank without ruining myself and have thus far reaped a beautiful profit that my wife deems pleasant. This is, of course, something EXTRAORDINARY. Ahem. So I decided to wager my trust I've earned with her with said investment, and have decided to use a few more funds to build a mini miner. Obviously this won't be the mega tank that you see all over Youtube, Just a simple machine that may have the potential of 1.6GH/s is my hope. So this is what I've bought so far:
Total thus far after Rebates & Selling Games: ~$1300 USD Estimated 1.6GH/s with profits beginning in ~85 days (Before crash, of course XD - Now who knows!) Great thing is if all this goes kaput, I'll at least be able to resell it all! :D I have a monitor around for initial setup, and all the other obvious peripherals. What I am in need of are some tips or links in setting these 2 guys up. I'm somewhat new to Building a PCI-E Rig, but I'm sure its just as simple as plugging it all in, which I've done countless times before. I know that if I'm on Linux I won't need any dummy plugs for the DVI outputs on the other cards for it to be recognized by the OS. Can it be run purely all on a USB drive? That's one thing I'm a little unsure of. Mostly my questions consist of:
Physical Setup, if there's anything special about it all. Obviously I'll need some cooling going on. Would fan-cooling be sufficient? Or should I look into Watercooling? All I know is that if I do watercooling, I'll have to get specific water blocks for my cards.. But where to get them?
Any particular settings while using the miner program on linux to max out the performance on my 2x 7970's and 3x 7770's
Do you gain parts of bitcoins when you SoloMine, like you do in pooled mining? Or do you only reap a benefit when you hit a block of 25 bitcoins?
I don't care much for people bantering about how difficult it is now to mine, or how ineffective this might be, I've read my share about that. I plan on just having this run in the corner of my little apartment for a few months while I go to school/work/walk the dog/etc... I would like tips or any insider info on other fellow 7970'ers on how to maximize my performance with these two cards at my disposal. And of course those who do help me in my time of need and once it's all beautiful and vampiric-sparkly like will get Brownie Points in the afterlife. Last computer I built was back in 2004 so that I could play Half Life 2. And I was on a budget back then too. So I'm not too savvy with all this new cooling hardware and techniques as I've never had to deal with things that exceeded 4x AGP. I'll post pictures and videos of all the fun I have with this adventure :D Update Thus far I have only received my two 7970's and boy do they look beastly. I've never held a card that manly before. 2nd Update Everything came in! Goodness it's difficult to do a headless Linux Box! for sake of time, I think I'm just going to buy a cheap sata harddrive. 3rd Update So here's the final photo of it running with 2xx7970's I'm still waiting for the riser cables to come in to mount the other 3 cards. I haven't uploaded the videos of me building it all just yet (btw I sucked at putting it all together XD)
Sapphire 3dMark 280x XFX 3dMark 7970 I bought a used 280x to sli with my 7970 off ebay and was expecting it out preform my 7970 slightly. Was disappointed when it benchmark lower. Is it slightly defective or is anything wrong or its just something that might happen?
I am NOT new to ebay even though I have no feedback. I am simply starting a new account because I am selling some things for a friend and I want to keep it separate. Thanks What I have is a slightly used graphics card. It was used for less then one week and comes with everything including the box. They were used to bitcoin process. I have about 15 total of this model. Sapphire Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 DVI-I/DVI-D/HDMI/DP Dual-X OC version (UEFI) PCI-Express Graphics Card
If it's a big discrepancy from what it should be, should i try to return?
Building a new computer, is it worth it to leave it on to mine while I'm away?
I'll be building this tonight once all the parts come in, I'd heard a 7970 could do some damage at bitcoin mining and I was curious if it's worth getting into bitcoin mining with this rig or if I'd only be paying for it's power consumption. The plan would be to let it mine while I sleep and work, but it'd be a gaming rig the rest of the time. Any help is appreciated.
[Build Help] my first built PC: bitcoin rig two 7970s with occasional gaming
I'm building mainly a bitcoin mining rig with occasional gaming, and would love your help. I've never built a PC before but look forward to it! Two 7970s have been purchased for a total of $900 including tax because it was good sale. Now the rest I'd like lots of input to decide upon. I want it to last as long as possible. Am Canadian (in Toronto) and a student. Willing to put additional $600-$1100 max into rest, nothing else bought. The main thing is it will be running 24/7 at max settings, and would shut down mining for occasional gaming. A very knowledgable technician at TigerDirect gave me a great start but now I need to get more feedback. Looking for advice what to get, from where, and why.

Run down: • COOLING? - air or liquid? - liquid is ruled out due to expense, since it's been explained to me it costs ~$600 for the assembly to liquid cool the cards directly. Seems pointless to get CPU cooling for the 1-10% time I'd use it for gaming. • MOBO? - this is the biggest part want help with. I have no concept how to select between the suggestions Sabertooth Z77 (Intel) or Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 (AMD). My understanding is the bus capacity is 16X for two cards is good just for gaming I'd do, otherwise wouldn't matter for bitcoin. I'm willing to invest an additional $100 above these if the quality of the parts will really last longer, but I don't want needless expense. • CPU? - i7 ruled out as unnecessary expense, I'd get i5 if Intel. AMD is more power-efficient, but for at least the next 6-12 months I won't care, my rent includes electricity. My understanding is any performance difference of i5 vs. i7 would be A) neglible at 15% improvement, and B) only for video editing which I'd only do a few hours per year max, or never. If I were to get an AMD, an AMD FX 8320 was suggested. It's 3.5 Ghz for $160. Need help choosing between AMD or Intel. OVERCLOCKING - Also note my friend is considering overclocking speed of cards, underclock memory, and overclock the core for me. • CROSSFIRE - desired. don't know much about. • POWER SUPPLY? - my understanding is Corsair is a good reliable brand, for a few bucks can get 3 years warrenty for over-the-counter. know there's 4-6 tiers like AX HX TX CX, was planning on getting cheapest CX unless I understand the expense is really justified. i'll stay away from no-name brands, but don't know others. Also dunno exactly about power consumption or margin of error. • CASE? - a case that fits, so please note the massive size of these cards, consumes 2 slots. Want lots of air cooling to mitigate costs. Aesthically also highly considering a plain white exterior to be painted... but the whole case is lowest priority for now, I want it mining bitcoin soon exposed directly to air for a short while, then can leisurely acquire case. • MEMORY? - 8 GB was suggested, Kingston, Hyperx 1600Ghz. no clue what matters here. • HARD DRIVE? - I want SSD, Samsung's 250 GB for $230 was suggested. I can use a spare regular harddrive to begin with to get started, add after. Have looked at TigerDirect and NewEgg, can also look at NCIX.
