    Dude I would have shat my pants! Good troubleshooting on your part.

      Why did you flash an AMD card? I don’t get it. AMD hasn’t needed a flash since I think 9700 and X800XT days or something. Maybe I am out of touch.

        BIOS flashing 5600/5700 cards is a thing for ETH mining and has been for a while. Gains at least 4 MH.

        Far as what happened with this reference card best guess would be that it did take the flash correctly but at some point the BIOS became corrupted, probably the last time the miner crashed. When the rig rebooted after that, it was trashed.

          Damn, that's some high risk flashing. What hashrates are you getting on AMD cards?

            And the 5700 is better than the 6700?

              For ETH yes, the 5700 > 6700xt. This is due to memory bandwidth.

              GPUs I have in the pool and their hash rates:
              2060maxQ - 25 MH
              5600xt asus tuf - 41 MH
              5700xt powercolor - 55 MH
              5700xt amd reference - 51 MH
              6800xt sapphire - 61.5 MH

                  Eth2.0 delayed to end of 2022 at earliest. What a shocker. PoS delayed. Now miners can mine longer...by miners I mean ASICs

                      you think it will bounce around for a few months and continue, or be shat for a year?

                      Mining profits are still okay. Stacking my sats until then

                        I think 30K will be the new 40K.

                          So far if you look at the grand picture, the trend is slowly down. I think we're in the bear market for quite some time now.

                            Good time to get in at low prices. Free $$ from mining should turn into 10x sometime in the future.

                              For those in Ontario, Canada fyi Binance and a few other exchanges have been banned. You will no longer be able to trade/buy but it says you should be able to withdraw any coins until end of the year. This is coming to a province near you.

                                Wow. What’s the point of banning an exchange if you can still use electricity to product coin. I think it must be more important to review electricity consumption and then go after those nubs. Also Leper if you want to sell cheap cards let me know.

                                  I wouldn't touch Binance with a 10ft barge pole anyway. I've heard many dodgy stories about that place.

                                    I'm on a few exchanges, but I'll just use the decentralized exchanges for my coins.

                                        Dunno KAC, $ergo looks like a new mining contender. Might be mining well into 2023 and beyond. You can have the 3090s in a few years when they're bottom of the barrel.

                                          EIP-1559 set for August 4th, with up to 2 weeks delay. So Aug 4-18th ish.
                                          Otherwise I'm still just stacking my sats.

                                          The word is don't expect video card prices anywhere close to MSRP for another 6 months.

                                              Aug 4th is confirmed. Unfortunately the 2nd hand cards are sold in bulk to other Chinese miners. Probably the gov't approved ones.

                                                    Crypto is still much higher than it was last year, Paypal offers Crypto, VISA has just made it so you can use Crypto with VISA.

                                                    So yeah Crypto is far from death .

                                                    Also I'm still making like 40 USD every 3 days, soooooo what can I say?

                                                    Also they should have recycled those, steamrolling them is such a waste of resource.

                                                          That is quite impossible. I am doing 6 bucks a day w/ a 3090 at 105 MH/s rate. Unless you have the 3080 clocked past that I still don’t see 40 bucks in 3 days.

                                                            I'm making less $ relative to a few months ago, but still the same amount of coin. That's all that matters

                                                                    Also it's about 30-35usd depending on bitcoin, now? No more like 30 as. It's just dropped some more, otherwise past few. Weeks I was making a lot as the price kept fluctuating.

                                                                        Comment

                                                                          As a base example, tweak from there.

                                                                              Me memory. Is around 86'c, sometimes more or less depending on ambient temp. (also changed thermal pads)

                                                                                Also my memory craps out at 950 in benches so most I will clock it is possibly 650-700 MHz.

                                                                                  3080 from 68-75%.
                                                                                  3060ti/3070 I have at 55%. I've heard it can go lower but not in windows.

                                                                                  I also find what max mem OC is for all the cards and back waaay off. I don't need the 2mh/s extra just to kill the card
