“Ethereum Mining-Rig plug and play”

A: This guide covers using Windows 10 (make sure it’s 64 bit).  There are also various distros of Linux that can be used (not covered here).  But Windows is the easiest to configure and get up and running fast.  There is no Mac version at this time.  
2. You say that “You can also change the memory clock. However, this has a smaller effect”. Is this for real? Everywhere I read about it has been said that the memory increase increases your hashrate. The core clock also increase it, but this affects the power consumption.
-cclock   set target GPU core clock speed, in MHz. If not specified or zero, miner will not change current clock speed. You can also specify values for every card, for example “-cclock 1000,1050,1100,0”.
Ein zweiter, und vielleicht wichtigerer Grund für die Difficulty-Bomb ist jedoch der geplante Wechsel von Ethereum von PoW zu PoS. PoW bedeutet “Proof of Work” und meint, dass die Miner um den Block-Reward konkurrieren, indem sie beweisen, dass ihre Computer Rechenzyklen verbrauchen. PoS hingegen bedeutet “Proof of Stake” und meint, dass die Miner nicht echte Computerleistung investieren, sondern lediglich Ether, mit denen sie simulierte Miner kaufen und mit diesen um die Blöcke konkurrieren. Anstatt Miner heißen sie nun Staker.
Ich bin der Ansicht, dass man nur mit PoW ein wirklich dezentrales System erreichen kann, allerdings mit Algorithmen, die so weit wie möglich ASIC resistent sind und möglichst vieler Hardware ermöglichen am System teilzunehmen, wie z.B. Cuckoo Cycle (welcher auch weitgehend Poolresistent ist). Das war eigentlich auch die Idee von Bitcoin, dass jeder Nutzer (Node) nebenher mit seinem PC mined. Aber ich bin gespannt auf die weitere Entwicklung von Ethereum, denn wenn es funktioniert und (unendlich) skaliert, wie es sich Vitalik vorstellt, ist er wahrlich ein Genie.
There are two types of mining hardware: CPUs and GPUs. GPUs boast a higher hash rate, meaning they can guess puzzle answers more quickly. At time of writing, GPUs are now the only option for ether miners.
Each block must have the proof of work of the given difficulty if it is to validated in consensus. The algorithm for validation is called Esthash. It has to do with identifying the nonce input to the result in such a way that it will be below a threshold that is determined by the difficulty. If the outputs are uniform in distribution, then the fact that the time required to find a nonce depends on the difficulty is guaranteed. In this case, simply manipulating the difficulty will allow a miner control how much time is required to find a new block.
Cryptography is an art, not a science. And the state of the art can advance over time. Advances in code cracking, or technical advances such as the development of quantum computers, could present risks to cryptocurrencies and the Ethereum Platform, which could result in the theft or loss of ETH. To the extent possible, Stiftung Ethereum intends to update the protocol underlying the Ethereum Platform to account for any advances in cryptography and to incorporate additional security measures, but it cannot predict the future of cryptography or guarantee that any security updates will be made in a timely or successful manner.
Ethereum plans to switch to Proof of Stake in 2018 which will eliminate mining slowly over time. But even if Ethereum is no longer mined you can find a new coin to mine, we recommend checking out whattomine which will keep you in the know for highest ROI coins to mine.
Apart from being one of the most affordable GPUs available on the market today, it is also one of the most economical. While only consuming 150 watts of electric power, this CPU presents a hash rate of 25 MH/s.  When compared to Radeon R9 295X2 and Radeon R9 HD 7990, the cost of power for this GPU is relatively low, at only $0.4320. Its cost per MH/s is $7.96, which is quite impressive compared to most GPUs that are currently on the cryptocurrency market. The return per day for the Radeon RX 480 is $1.21, while its return per year is $440.91. On sale at Amazon now, you will have this GPU and begin mining Ethereum without many problems.
It can be remembered that around April of 2017, the cards for AMD Rx 4 & 5 series totally sold out leading to a significant rise in price in most markets. Most miners opted to use this GPU, which was affordably available on the market back then.
As a last note, make sure to keep an eye on your temps as you don’t want to accidently burn your cards or cause your rig to shutdown. Once you see your temperatures stay flat for a few minutes it should be alright. Just stay vigilant when trying out new settings and don’t assume that the first thirty seconds are the temps your cards will run at for all time. OpenHardwareMonitor is a good tool for plotting your temps and visualizing them if you need something to watch while you test out new settings on a rig, snag it from http://openhardwaremonitor.org/
More specifically, the miners will run the block’s unique header metadata (including timestamp and software version) through a hash function (which will return a fixed-length, scrambled string of numbers and letters that looks random), only changing the ‘nonce value’, which impacts the resulting hash value.
Essentially, you’ll be letting the blockchain backed by Ethereum use your computer resources when you aren’t using them to solve mathematical equations and strengthen the blockchain network, and in exchange you will be rewarded with Ethereum currency.
This guide shows you the basics of solo mining, it should give you a good idea of how everything is connected, if you would like to use a mining pool instead you can try our How to connect to an Ethereum mining pool guide.
Experimentation with various GPU selections in the calculator will reveal a card with the best price to performance to power consumption combination (expressed as MH/s per Currency Unit). Keep in mind that AMD cards outperform NVidia for cryptocurrency mining purposes.
Custom BIOS. Custom BIOS’ are trickier. While it’s easy to use a tool such as AtiFlash to flash your GPU, bare in mind that it is risky. You will also need to find a BIOS that is suitable for your GPU unless you’re proficient at tweaking it yourself with a tool like PolarisBiosEditor. However, this can have the largest gain. For example, for the RX480 a custom BIOS can raise its hash rate to 30Mhs+ which is a considerable 30% improvement!
Windows 10 introduced forced updates as a pretty controversial “feature”, and not having control over when your mining rig is rebooted to install OS patches could be frustrating. We’ll be setting things up so that your mining rig automatically begins mining any time Windows boots, so leaving automatic updates in place certainly wouldn’t be disastrous if you want to skip this section. But if you’d prefer to retain control over downtime, here are some workarounds:
Hi, great artical. I’m currently learning all about this and am about to build my rig. I’m planning on using Ethos and have 2 x RX 580 8G and 4 x Nvidia 1070 8G (I’m planning to add more cards over time on my Asrock h110 pro BTC Mobo). My question is this: Can I run this mixture of cards altogether on the current version of Ethos? And will Claymore handle this mixture of cards too?
-tstart   set start temperature for overheated GPU that was previously stopped with “-tstop” option. For example, “-tstop 95 -tstart 50” disables GPU when it reaches 95C and re-enables it when it reaches 50C.
After you have installed the driver restart your PC. If you’ve  already modified your GPU’s before, there might be a possibility that you won’t be able to see them anymore. That is most likely a problem with the RX 570 series and it’s very rare with some RX 580 models. The problem comes from the bios mod, because it changes how the GPU’s work and you  will need to Patch your drivers to make them work properly or  the driver will just end up disabling  or hiding the GPU’s (Error 43). This is only needed if you can’t see your bios’ modified GPU’s in the Windows Device Manager. Download the Pixel Clock Patcher. Run the program, it should give you a message that the values were patched. After that restart your PC and you should have proper working modified GPU’s.
Prices of products on the site are in a USD value. The price of bitcoin mining machines has to be adjusted frequently in accordance with variables such as BTC value and market circumstance. Refund requests based on price changes cannot be honored. The payments for orders are accepted through the Bitcoin (“BTC”) payment network and other options such as wire transfer. In the event you choose to pay in BTC, the site will calculate and convert the USD value to BTC amount according to our chosen exchange rate (which is a weighted average from major Exchange sites around the world). Later changes to the exchange rate of USDBTC have no effect on the amount to be paid for your placed order.
Der letzte wichtige Faktor um mit Ethereum Mining Geld zu verdienen ist der Wert von Ethereum. Dieser ist in letzter Zeit rasant gestiegen und damit auch die potentiellen Einnahmen durch Ethereum Mining. Experten glauben zudem, dass Ethereum, auf Grund seines großen Potentials, auch in Zukunft einen guten Kurs beibehalten wird. Eine solche Kursentwicklung, würde Ethereum Mining auch weiterhin zu einem sehr lukrativen Investment machen.
GPUs were the next available option for miners after noticing that the CPUs were becoming slower with each given day. They realized that the energy consumption of graphics cards was quite high, and so they could be used to mine Bitcoins. AMD GPUs are actually the best in this regard.
damage or loss of the product caused by undue physical or electrical stress, including but not limited to moisture, corrosive environments, high voltage surges, extreme temperatures, shipping, or abnormal working conditions;
Once you start mining, if you find a block ethminer will output a smiley face and say “Block submitted and accepted!” and geth will output “Mined block #xxxxx”. You might also see geth say “Mined stale block #xxxxx”. Unlike other coins you could mine, stale blocks are actually worth something, so if you see stales that just means someone found the block before you did (but you still contributed). You’ll still receive a partial block reward in this case.

And while you could certainly purchase Ethereum at any point in time with cold hard cash (or BitCoin, for that matter), a lot of people have started to mine their own crypto currency and Ethereum – putting their computers to work and earning a tremendous amount of crypto currency along the way.
I though that developing Ethereum ASIC would be unprofitable because of their plans to switch to PoS, but it seems like Bitmain has calculated otherwise. Maybe it will be usable to mine other coins with the same algorithm. But since it won’t be able to mine all GPU algorithms, GPU mining will still be around for a long time, so if this ASIC will take over ETH mining, current ETH miners will just switch to other coins.
RED – this part shows you the real GPU’s core clock rates and its voltages. In other            overclocking tools you will only see the last one, in this case 1340 Mhz. As you noticed there are 8 of them (P0,P1….P7) and that are the GPU’s core states. This means the GPU switches automatically to default between those states, depending on how much you use the GPU. From all those 8 states, we don’t want the GPU to switch between them, we want it to run stable at the fixed clock rates we put it on. To do that we will need to DISABLE all  the GPU’s states except the last one (P7). You can disable every state from P0 till P7 simply by double clicking on its name (just go with  the mouse over “P0” and doubleclick), you will know if you are successful if that state changes colour.
Samsung’s foray into the cryptocurrency mining space has a number of ramifications for the mining community. It signals the arrival of a mainstream, global electronics conglomerate to the cryptocurrency space. Samsung has established itself as one of the top global producers of high quality electronics, and its looking likely that its ASIC chips will be highly efficient and powerful.

There are also Ethereum Mining Contracts such as by Genesis Mining. These companies provide you with your own dedicated mining rig, and you have to pay for this up front. Again, unless you’re speculating heavily on the pricing, these don’t tend to be worth it.
From a security minded engineer: How can I trust someone sharing Windows executable via Google Drive and using WinRar? The guide is nice but it raises lots of security concerns. There’s no auditable open source code and stamp by security experts. Not long ago we had WannaCry spreading in the wild.
