Could someone help me out here. I’ve got a R280X that should run around 290 h/s on equihash. I runs great guns on Cryptonite 485 h/s but when I start Claymore Zen64 miner it starts out at 275 h/s and then starts to throttle back to 150 h/s. It drops my clock speed in half and I have no control over setting thru MSI afterburner. It mines along but at half the speed 500mhz.
For AMD mining you might want to head on to the Coinsforall mining pool that uses its own different protocol and has an OpenCL and CUDA miner. Earlier today Genoil has posted an OpenCL miner binary for Windows with stratum support, however it seems that his miner is still not ready for major use as most people are reporting issues making it work properly. We have tried his miner and also had trouble making it work properly, so if you have AMD OpenCL GPUs just go for Coinsforall for the moment and use their miner.
The only drawback is that the miner currently only supports connection to NiceHash, so you cannot use it with other pools. While this might nit be bad during the slow start of ZEC mining, after that you might still want to go for mining and keeping Zcash instead of immediately selling it for profit. Hopefully in the next few weeks we are also going to see more development happening for Nvidia users and that goes not only for Linux, but for Windows users as well.
hi， bminer also faster than other miner around 10-15%, but reject data it’s so high, i using on nicehash to mine, reject data around 3% to 5%, i will try direct to mining zecoin later and report of bminer.
Zcash mining is getting pretty popular but solo mining can get pretty lonely. Come test the waters on a Zcash pool! All you have to do is follow this guide! We are going to use the NiceHash open source miner, which allows us to mine for BTC or for ZCash. Since we want to keep our newly mined ZEC, we’re using the second option.
Hey guys, thanks for the fantastic guide. I have a windows 10 system with two nvidia GPUs. One is gtx 960 and the other is gt 710. I am using escavator for mining zcash. I m getting 127 H/s if i use only my gtx 960 GPU. When i added the second GPU, escavator does not read it, ( windows does), still getting 127H/s. How do i increase this? Any ideas pls.
The latest NiceHash EQM Zcash 1.0.3a is available for both Windows and Linux and promises up to 320 Sol/s on a stock GTX 1070, and up to 370 Sol/s on overclocked GTX 1070 (you need to use two instances per GPU for maximum performance). We can confirms hashrates that are very close to the ones claimed on the GTX 1070 and of course the miner also does well on other NVidia GPUs. Do note however that it does require SM 5.0 GPU, meaning Maxwell or Pascal as it will not work on older Nvidia architectures…
As you can see, pricing has some fairly wild swings. As another example, this article was written Saturday, 20 May 2017 when the price was $104 USD to 1 ZEC. On Sunday 21 May 2017 the price hit $123. At the time of this publication (9AM Pacific 22 May 2017) 1 ZEC is now around $248. Prices fluctuate, a lot.
HVAC is a serious additional expense when used to cool a mining or folding rig, it will add rough ballpark 40% to your electrical cost (somewhat less if you have a VERY high efficiency unit in the 15+ CEER/SEER range as opposed to common units that are typically 9.3 or so)
If you’re reading the newbie’s guide to Ethereum mining and have a GPU that’s powerful enough to make it worthwhile, we’re going to assume you’re running Windows, so we’ll focus on mining Zcash on that platform.
Replace “eu” for your location, “ZEC-ADDRESS” for your zcash wallet address (transparent address), replace “-t 8” for the number of threads you want to use, and lastly replace “-og 0” for the number of GPUs you’re using (as in -og 0 1 2 if you’re using 3 GPUs)
6. It is recommended that you install applications such as MSI Afterburner in order to control the card’s fan. In its default mode, the power is low and it allows the card to reach a temperature of 70-80 degrees Celcius (normal when playing occasionally but not healthy when it comes to a machine running 24-hours a day).
GeForce GTX 780M, GeForce GTX 770M, GeForce GTX 765M, GeForce GTX 760M, GeForce GT 755M, GeForce GT 750M, GeForce GT 745M, GeForce GT 740M, GeForce GT 735M, GeForce GT 730M, GeForce GT 720M, GeForce GT 710M, GeForce 720M, GeForce 710M, GeForce 705M
I would recommend EWBF miner for Zcash, but Claymore dual mining is just as good. Just in case anyone doesn’t know you can dual mine any coin you want, your not limited to just ETH and Decred or ETH and SIA. Just need to read the “Read Me” Text doc in your miners folder. I made a short explanation video, mind you I am not a top end Content creator… but should help..
By default the EWBF miner should extract to a folder named “Zec miner 0.3.3b” unless you changed it. I would recommend placing this folder somewhere easy to get to, such as the root of your C drive, your Desktop, or somewhere you can easily locate it. For this guide I extracted it to: “C:\Zec miner 0.3.3b“. Open up the Zec miner 0.3.3b folder and you should see files similar those those below:
Replace “stratum.zcash.nicehash.com:3357” with your pool’s server. and replace “t1RjQjDbPQ9Syp97DHFyzvgZhcjgLTMwhaq” with your zcash wallet address. Optionally, replace “YourWorkerName”. If you want, you can also replace “x” with your password.
It is advisable to put the fan regularly on a certain percentage so that the heat of the card is about 60 degrees (note that during the day the house is warmer and the temperature will rise accordingly).
Encryption the process by which information protected from others and only accessible to those who have authorization. That is not to say that authorization may not be gained through unintended ways, but that is all dependent on the quality of the encryption.
As you can see, Flypool offers quite a bit of information on your progress. At the top we have Hashrates which show your current (2 hour) and long term (24 hour) average hash-rates, your Immature Balance (which is simply the coins not yet fully confirmed on the network), Unpaid Balance which is you confirmed coins waiting to be paid once you reach the payment threshold, number of active workers, and a summary of submitted shares in the form of valid/invalid.
I hope you’ve found this guide useful! In the video, I quickly cover overclocking and turning down your power consumption via MSI Afterburner, so make sure to watch it as well. If you run into any issues or have any questions, comment here in the blog or in the video comments, and I’ll try to help as much as I can.
The next step is to download the EWBF Miner. Only download miners from the official threads in BitcoinTalk. If you scroll down, you’ll see a couple of different download options. We’re going to use the Mega download link.
Zcash mining is very simple and it is good news for beginners now they need not to download full Zcash block chain. They need not to manage clunky command line miners with manual instructions. If you are a beginner you can go for Zcash mining directly.
