    Do the numbers at the top of this post still hold true? Trying to determine what I should expect our of my RX470's at this point I was aiming for ~800H/s from each card. Thread says 550 h/s and I am already getting more than that.

    CPU numbers are good from a relative standpoint. On the GPU side, I think things have gotten much better.

    I get about 725H/s on my RX480s, so 800h/swill Be a Little out of range :)

    Added EPYC 7351P preliminary numbers. Fairly awesome 177W results.

    Almost all of the EPYC 7601 XMR mining performance since it has 64MB L3 as well, but at only around $800.

    It's xmr-stak-cpu-dev on my dual E5-2667 V3 es cpu's running in "low power mode"

    It runs faster and cooler on 16 threads than xmr-stak-cpu on 32 threads.:D

    Plus the desktop is still SUPER responsive because I still have 16 threads running at 2.9 GHz or greater to run what ever I want.

    I just mine 24/7 with it and you can't even notice it using the desktop, I run all my regular programs with zero issues.

    Added 1P EPYC 7301 - very close to 2P 7251 results but with lower power consumption. ~7.5H/s/W

    Have some confirmed stats from my most efficient server thus far:

    floureon energy meter model ts-1500

    supermicro motherboard:
    Mobo model: X9DRW-3F PCB Rev 1.02 BIOS Version 3.2
    Supermicro CSE815TQ-R700WB
    removed existing power supplies. added 1x PWS-504P-1R (500 watt 80+ platinum)

    dual e5-2660v2 cpus
    6 cores enabled in bios
    8x8gb pc3l-10600r
    ssd boot drive

    reported stats from "ipmitool sensor":

    cpu1: 43c. cpu2: 47c
    fans 1,2,3,4: varies from 5800-6300 rpm

    reported power from "ipmitool dcmi power reading": 146w
    reported power from power meter:

    watts: fluctuated from 132-144w. usually below 140w
    volts: 203-204v measured
    amps: usually 0.695a measured (fluctuated up/down a small amount)
    volt-amps: typically 142va measured

    last 15 minutes: 868h/s -- this seems quite low, going to restart miner and see if it improves.

    edit: restarted stak. 1 minute average 902 h/s. still below expectations.

    All cores seem to be at the full turbo of 2.6ghz. 24 threads active which is ideal for the l3 cache. Just not seeing the performance I saw when I first fired this up with these settings 4 days ago.

    Either way, easily the best power use of any dual e5 I've set up thus far.

    Put the EPYC 7601 into a 1U 1P system that is fairly barebones only the BMC + a 10Gb SFP+ port connected. DDR4-2400 to lower IF speed.

    1786H/s at 179W using Wolf's in Docker. @Klee and @Marsh - first 10H/s/W CPU?

    Restarted the stak miner a couple more times until I got the results I expected. Did not change any configurations. Did not reboot server. Did not edit bios settings.

    New 15 minute average performance: 970h/s.

    ipmitool dcmi power reading: 145w.

    so probably the same 142va measured on the power meter previously (sorry, already had it disconnected at this point)

    great results : )

    thanks for sharing.

    have two more data points:

    ====

    Another X9DRW board with e5-2660v2
    this one has 2x8gb low voltage ram
    it also has one fan removed (3 fans total not 4)
    pretty sure it's the same chassis as my last reported result

    on the more efficient 500w platinum psu, "ipmitool dcmi power reading" shows 133w and 989h/s (1 minute average)

    from recent tests, at least with this motherboard, the ipmitool readings report very close to the "volts * amps" readings of my 208v power meter.

    i.e. they seem to be spot on if you care about your circuit amps usage, but strictly speaking seem to report a bit higher in watts than my meter shows.

    anyway, I'm happy to accept (at least for this chassis + motherboard) the ipmitool watt readings are not erroneously low.

    so... 989 / 133 = 7.4 H/W pretty good

    ====

    second system. same 500w platinum psu, same motherboard, 4 fans this time, 8x8gb lv ram, dual e5-2680v2, 6 cores per cpu enabled in bios, mining on 24 threads

    power meter shows 0.81 - 0.83 A @ 205v (166-170 VA) and 0.95 - 1.00 power factor.

    Power meter shows 162-165w. ipmitool reports 177w.

    1184h/s. Using the ipmitool number of 177w, that's 6.7 H/w -- not bad.

    this same system was at 0.88a @ 205v (180 VA), ipmitool reporting 181w, power meter reporting 172w, when using a different psu: PWS-704P-1R (750w 80+ gold)

    looking just at volt-amps (the more relevant metric in the datacenter), you drop by about 12 VA going to the better PSU (more efficient and more correctly sized to the task at hand). In a datacenter this psu upgrade should pay for itself inside of a year, even if you threw the old one in the trash.

    E5 v2 H/s per watt is pretty good and H/s per dollar value is better than E5 v3.
    For E5 v2 , we don't need to invest in higher cost DDR4 ram and new system board.

    I like E5 v2 CPU. Just hoping price starting dropping soon.

    @funkywizard how are you reading power using ipmitool? Can you log as well?

    the command is:

    "ipmitool dcmi power reading"

    works on some motherboards when the smbus cable is connected from the psu to the motherboard.

    may not be accurate on all systems -- the fat twin I tested for example excludes chassis-level power usage (such as fans) from the measurement.

    best to verify that a particular chassis / power supply / motherboard gives accurate numbers before relying on these. aside from the fat twin however, the numbers it gives out have been pretty close.

    for logging -- probably, I haven't looked into it. the command gives an instantaneous power reading, a minimum, a maximum, an average, and a time span. I'm not sure how to reset the time span. Personally, I run the command a few times and look at the instantaneous reading, and either pick the value it stays at most of the time, or a range that it fluctuates within.
