[Anorak.Tech] ETH Mining Pool - Month 3.0!


#101

Sooo close to breaking this block! I can feel it!


#102

Here blockie blockie!


#103

Hashrate is up 70%
We are 70% faster to breaking the next 20 blocks this week :heart_eyes_cat:


#104

My prediction is we get 2 blocks in 3 days. I haz the clairvoyance!


#105

I think we get 3 blocks in 2 days. Hopefully those two days will be this month :slight_smile:


#106

haaa share going to dev fee DevFee from anorak pool!! : ETH: 04/24/18-19:08:39 - SHARE FOUND - (GPU 0)

:frowning_face: one of my rigs power supply fried it self. I’m down one rig, will have to wait 4 days for a new power supply to be delivered.
Waking up to a smell of electrical burning.


#108

I’m going to give another try to getting ethos to do this.


#109

When you figure it out, let me know. Best to keep the mining in the pool


#110

I just watched a YouTube video by sonofatech about rigs catching fire / burning up. It had some useful info in it. Here’s the link if you’re interested.


#111

Don’t understand this… Does it mean that you also decided to remove -allpools 1 ?


#112

interesting, but the power supply cables are all 6 pin power that burnt out. I don’t have any molex pci-e adapter cables though.
My other rig had a few blown pci-e molex before.


#113

It’s a chinese PSU right ?
I am almost sure that :

  • the copper diameter doesn’t match the AWG mentionned on the cable
  • or the AWG value is misschosen for the current going through the cable
  • and that the plastic around the copper is not enough resistant to heat and/or doesn’t dissipate heat correctly.

Last possibility, your GPU draws much more current than the max supported by each cable of your PSU ?


#114

Yeah, its the PSU that came with the 8 GPU case.

Anyways, I bought a new PSU from ebay https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2000W-95-ATX-Mining-Power-Supply-PFC-For-ETH-Rig-Ethereum-Miner-S9-S7-L3-D3-AU/292424762689?epid=25013769637&hash=item4415dfc541:g:PncAAOSwSwVaco6v


#115

Or it could be the ants that shipped with the power supply finally got through the cladding inside the power supply. :slight_smile:


#116

Branded PSU are more expensive but that’s what I recommend.
I have one coolermaster V1000 and a EVGA GQ750 and they are good.
On the first one I run 6x RX570. The rig draws 750W at wall.
The second one is powering 1x RX570 + 2x RX470 + 1xRX560 and draws 550W at wall.

For higher power, if fan noise is not a problem (can be really loud) I would suggest server PSU based solutions (HP for e.g.). Most of them have better power efficiency (>=95%).


#117

I agree with you, but I need a PSU with alot of 6 pin connectors and for cheap urgently. Also I don’t want to run 2 PSU. My other rig is running 2 PSU (1200W Silverstone + 800W Thermaltake).


#118

I’m an idiot, but I gotta ask…how do you use that power supply without using a 2 psu connection or connection to the mobo? Just power fans and pci rider? Or will the computer regulate the power usage via the USB connection to the pci riser?


#119

You may consider getting this kind of “auto” extinguisher : https://www.amazon.com/Extinguisher-Suppression-Device-Safety-Product/dp/B01JVXFQ6E :slight_smile: (and a ant killer spray :stuck_out_tongue: )


#120

I see someone has added some big guns to the pool…
Here blockie blockie :bomb:
