I have a project I'm working on and basically I'm trying to get the most bang for my buck and squeeze the most power out of one of these thinkcentre M715q's or similar. It seems you can pick a decent one up for around $200 on ebay (with ~16gb ram and 512Gb HD!). I'm looking at the Ryzen 5...
I'm looking for a decent setup for my 1st upcoming Monero mining rig (Dual Epyc etc), but the results I've gathered are based on Google results from 2018-2020 and they vary - a lot! My budget is around 1000-1400€. Patrick's last thread about Monero is from year 2018 and much have changed...
Since we already did the NVIDIA Tesla P100 16GB SXM2 Monero mining speed, I figured I would burn-in the 8x Tesla V100 system for 15 minutes with this before benchmarking. Using the same Docker container for both. Here are the results.

I would like to build a home server, that will function as NAS + will run Bitcoin, Monero and possibly other cyrptocurrencies in Virtual Machines. I want to run full nodes - these are NOT minig, but they still verify the blockchaian and transactions signatures etc.
I am considering 2...
Starting a thread. Made a few edits today based on feedback from the beta testers on the new proxy. Once the new version is tested this will be the thread.
Why the proxy:
Ability to quickly and easily switch wallets/ coins/ pools
Minimizes external connections for easier NAT/ firewall...
Here is the docker image for ccminer. The docker image is built with CUDA 9.0 from the official nvidia/cuda image so you need to have CUDA 9 compatible drivers installed on the host system. You do NOT need to have CUDA installed on the host system.
This is also meant for nvidia-docker2 so we...
Doing a few quick tests since I have insomnia in London. 4AM and still awake. Mining using Monero / Cryptonight versus Aeon (AV1) for cryptonight-lite with the new Intel Xeon D-2123IT and Xeon D-2183IT for 4 and 16 core Skylake-D chips. Using the servethehome/universal_cryptonight
I would like to build a Monero mining computer with a great hash rate between $5-$15K as the budget or effectively produce a hash rate of above 3500 h/s
I've been looking into using a build with a EPYC cpu. Likewise, I have also been considering buying 10-20 GPU's and combining them...
Fairly new to the mining aspect of cryptocurrency so please bear with me.
I currently have excess servers (3) in my data center which i'm looking to utilize for Monero/Aeon mining but i'm not sure where to start. I currently have ESXi 5.5 installed on each server with multiple...
I just registered on STH because I want to pck up mining again.
In the past I have done some LTC and BTC mining with GPU's but that has been some years now, and all stuff has been reused or sold.
Now I have 3 nodes running with a load of spare CPU cycles and was wondering what I can...
I think many here will have seen that for the past few weeks I have been testing xmrig instead of Wolf's miner. You can check that thread for xmrig speeds and Monero Mining Performance for some Wolf's comparison data. Suffice to say that we are seeing some massive improvements with tying xmrig...
Since I am ultra tired today after a long workout, I decided to make a small resource for mining monero using Docker since I have a lot of requests for this.
It is a lot of text, but should take, at most 4-5 minutes to setup.
Step 1: Get a Monero wallet.
My suggestion: use an online wallet...
For Monero Mining Purpose:
I am interested in buying a server with 4x "AMD Opteron 6136 8-Core 2.40GHz" .
As I looked up this cpu doesn't support AES
On which features of cpu should I focus?
no of cores
Today we had a big occurrence on the STH forums. Two video cards were purchased and paid for using XMR.
Here is the post commemorating the event for posterity Q2 2017 STH Lab Cleaning
I did know the other party and it is a very well-known member of the STH forums which is good since there is...
i've posted this initially on bitcointalk and got redirected here so i guess you guys are the experts for monero...
I have received 2 of these machines,
CPU: 2x AMD Opteron 6174 12-Core 2.2 GHz (2x 6 MB Cache, 6.4 GT/s, AMD-V)
RAM: 16 GB RAM
HDD: 2x 146 GB SAS Hot Swap 2.5"...
Having dipped my toe into the world of docker with Patrick's Monero miner, I am now keen to try and deploy it across a swarm using Portainer. The problem is, I am having trouble figuring out exactly how to create the necessary service. It should just be a matter of taking the command...
I think I am going to have to make another image for this. FreeNAS Corral will not support Docker tags until an upcoming release.
But - Dockerized mining works!
I am going to make a new image but now you can use spare CPU cycles and earn a few dollars along the way.
Since this discussion was interleaved in the Monero Mining Performance thread I am pulling it out.
Discussion topics for this thread:
Wow/ oh no! - Did you see XMR Pricing
Ways people have found to use XMR to either get cash or goods. Legal goods only.
We have Monero as a payment...
Since I know we have a lot of Monero mining folks, I wanted to highlight a little build with a unique feature, it is based solely on using AMD CPU and GPUs for mining.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 with stock cooler
Motherboard: ASUS Prime B350-Plus
GPUs: AMD RX 480 (Gigabyte) and AMD...
