Has anyone got a good tuning for an Nvidia GTX 690 with sgminer?

Don't mock me, it was a gaming rig before I started mining!

Nvidia rigs are not compatible with the SGminer, it will not work, and Cudaminer has not been adapted for X11 as of yet.

A question on using R9 290.

The hardware list has I20. That's nearly full on using cgminer for scrypt and would generate a lot of heat, noise and power draw.

Does Darkcoin mining still run cool with I20?

Mining dark with SPH-sgminer is cooler and thus less noisy. Using between 30%-50% less power than scrypt. This coin is a whole 'nother animal.

I added new info to the Hardware list and combined the GPU and CPU lists to one link. There are tabs on the bottom to switch between the two.

@HammerHedd, I'm not aware of anyone mining DRK with NVIDIA.

I'm mining with a pair of GTX 690s (4 cores) with SGminer. I get about 370k/HS per core with -I 18 -w 256



I think cudaminer would get a lot more, but ...

It currently gets unstable above intensity 18 with 335.23 drivers. They are water-cooled and sit right at about 50C after an hour of mining.

I get a solid 3.15 mh/s with my 6990, and another 550 kh/s with my i7 4771

On Win8, I'm using a very basic command line input to get those speeds. Also the 6990 is clocked at 880 and 1250 which is the factory OC. The more I tinkered, the worse my hash rates were... so in the end I just went with KISS and let it run

Temps are ok, haswell runs hot. 69-75c for the CPU and 58-63c for the GPU. I have them WC'd on a single 120x80 radiator in a SFF rig (b/c why not?).

GPU:
Code:
--xintensity 100 --gpu-threads 1 --no-submit-stale

My Gigabyte Radeon 6850 runs at 880 kh/s with GPU clock at 800 mhz (775 mhz on stock) and memory clock at 900 mhz (1 GHZ on stock). Settings: -- I 18 --w 256 -s 1

Hi all .. Been mining for a while now with 2 7970. I just recently got a 7770 ghz edition of a mate to add to my miner . I'm getting 650k does any one have any better speeds with this card. I can't seem to find anything relating to the 7770 ghz edition for the x11 algorithm..

Many thanks

2.15mh out of each 280x Vapor-X

On my late 2013 13" Macbook I couldnt' manage anything over 50kh/, but what is really shocking is getting 230kh/s from a VMware Ubuntu with 3 cores and 2gb ram. The Mac is left with 1 core and 6Gb ram, and I dont feel any difference at all in performance!

2180 khash/s (yay!!!) from an EVGA Nvidia GTX770 SC dual bios (04G-P4-3773-KR) on second bios with ccminer on 2009 Mac Pro with W3520 Xeon, OS X 10.9.3, no setup.

Hi guys!
So I've been messing with my gpu miner and I haven't found the right settings for my card. This is why I want to offer a bounty to the first guy who manages to write a bat file for me with reasonable hashrate. What I'm offering for this task is 1 week (not continous, PC is turned off when AFK) mining of any sha-256 based coin @ 5.8 GHs/s.
GPU: Sapphire Radeon 7870 GHz edition with dual-X cooling. OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Use any suitable miner program/kernel.

Can someone explain me how much Mhash/s will i get with Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz? I will use only CPU for mining, because graphic cart is very very bad :D This pc will be only for mining under Linux. I`m newbie in mining cryptocurrency, please help me.

CPU/GPU mininig is not profitable for x11 now. With Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz you will have around 0.01MHash/sec. You profit will be around 0.001 DASH per year minus electricity power and other costs.

You can find different types of online mining profitability calculators, like https://whattomine.com/ or other. Than define how many you can invest to hardware and what currency you prefer. Calculate your OPEX and ROI and make a best decision. Also, do not remember about risk of changing of networks difficulty and exchange prices.
