After that scroll all the way down till you see your GPU’s, they are located at the end. Now after you found the GPU’s, select all sensors except “Memory Errors” and HIDE them (right click on the sensors and press “hide”). Ater that, you will have something as in the image below:
At the beginning of GPU-mining, ribbon cables were used as risers for PCIe 2.0 x16. They had little flexibility and were very limited in length. Now, you should definitely use USB 3.0 risers for PCIe 2.0 x1 slots, much more flexible and up to 1 meter without any loss.
Another interesting thing that doesn’t seem pointed out in the white paper is that the memory has to be FAST. Excessively fast. So standard DRAM isn’t really up to the challenge, which is why the RAM on GPUs take the brunt of the work in most mining today.
Motherboard – ASRock H170 Pro4/D3 Intel H170 S1151/4xDDR3/2xPCIEx16/HDMI/DVI/USB3.0/ATX Motherboard. $145. This motherboard has 2x PCIe 3.0×16 and 3x PCIe 3.0×1, takes socket 1151 Intel 6th generation CPU and dual Channel DDR3/DDR3L 1866(OC) RAM. This motherboard only has 2 PCIe 3.0 x 16 slots which are too close together, so choose a better motherboard if you can.
ASIC vs GPU debate. This debate has been going on since about 2013. While the debate is usually focused on the future of the blockchain, definition of “distributed computing”(many small players, or few large players) and how to best avoid 51% attack, I will focus on long term profit from a miner’s perspective.
Das Mining, welches also verantwortlich ist für die Verifizierung von getätigten Transaktionen, und abgeschlossenen Verträgen, wird durch alle Miner kollektiv durchgeführt. Wer allerdings die Ether erhält, die als Belohnung für diese Leistung vergeben werden, ist abhängig von Wahrscheinlichkeiten: Je mehr Rechenleistung ein Miner aufbringt, umso mehr Blöcke der Ethereum Blockchain wird er auch für sich verbuchen können. Denn nur jener Miner wird belohnt,  der einen Block als erster findet, und jener, der den uncle/aunt Reward erhält, der also knapp im Rennen war.
MEMORY – This works identically as the GPU core, except it’s for the memory. This is the holy grail, this is the most important part of GPU mining and it’s very RANDOM. There is no fixed values from which you can know that it will work 100% on your GPU. There is just one proper way of doing it without risking any problems. We will need to disable P0 and P1 by double clicking on them.
You could purchase a brand-new computer, but that will cut into your potential profits. Many home-based Ethereum miners choose to build their own systems as a way to save cash. If you like to tinker with hardware and have a lot of spare parts around your house, building your own system might make sense. If you have an older PC lying around, a less complicated option might be to upgrade your existing hardware so that it is suitable for mining.
Nanopool is the largest mining pool with around 130,000 active miners. Fee’s are 1% and they also payout uncle blocks. This means that if your miners were close to solving the algorithm that would have paid out the block, you’ll receive a bonus for that through nanopool.
IMPORTANT: The following info is taken from the manufacturers and does not take into account and custom configuration such as overclocking, undervolting and BIOS modifications. Actual results vary depending on your customization. AMD cards allow for greater customization while Nvidia cards are locked to certain configurations.
The main part of the mining hardware is the graphics processing unit (GPU). Here is a link to a site that allows you to compare the different GPUs – http://www.mininghwcomparison.com/list/index.php?brand=both . Type “Ethereum” in the filter.
If it’s not included in your driver software, you’ll need a utility that monitors overclocking and temperatures. (While overclocking is not intended for more advanced users, it may reduce the lifetime of your GPU, and certain minor alterations may yield significant hash-rate improvements.)
Never underestimate the power of the Radeon RX 400 series. The Radeon RX 480 is not only the cheapest GPU in this list, it is also easily the most economic GPU. This card has a hash rate of 25 MH/s while only drawing 150 W at max load. You’ll make over $700 USD annually per card! Comparitively to the RX 580, this card is an awesome Ethereum miner!
Carefull, as you can see in the displayed image in my case, I have on this mining rig 7 GPU’s enabled. The first one is an INTEGRATED GPU and it’s ID is -p0 , all others are mining gpu’s (p1,…p6). So if you have your integrated GPU disabled for some reason you use a motherboard that does not have it, then your mining GPU id’s start from p0, but you can see the GPU’s order as displayed in the picture below. The GPU’s order in OverdriveNtool is the same as in the GPU-Z and Claymore 11.2.
some motherboards like the Z170 which are used for Gaming have 6 PCI-E inputs, but if you connect all 6 of them and you have an Integrated GPU enabled on your rig, it probably won’t start or it will give you a poor performance. That is an error on your motherboard, and you have to disable the Integrated GPU to make the rig work, and that is not a good option. And it will for sure cause problems.
Due to the costs and logistical issues with ASIC mining, it inevitably leads to powerful mining farms taking over huge percentages of the hash rate. Bitcoin needs decentralization of mining to prevent a 51% attack on the network. However, you can take a look at some of the large-scale mining taking place in China, with buildings full of ASICs.
Our comparison includes graphics cards armed with modern GPUs: AMD is represented by Ellesmere, Baffin, Lexa, and Hawaii (that’s the Radeon R9 390, Radeon RX 470/480, and Radeon RX 550/560/570/580), while Nvidia-based GP106/GP107 cards include the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1060 3GB, and GTX 1060 6GB.
