    I repurposed a few old computers, shockingly getting even 60khash out of some older cpus.

    Main effort is my aging 5770 that runs at about 190Khash when I go to itensity 18.

    Sheesh how are you getting 60kash out of old CPUs? 🙂 what software are you using?
    [/quote]
    Depends on their definition of old. I have some ‘old’ computers lying around for me too. But they equate to like 667MHz Intel Coppermine, Athlon 2.7GHz, Intel Celeron, etc… Although I do have a nice amount of dual core and above rigs ‘spare’ xD
    ( The only gripe is that the cost to run them way exceeds the shares they’ll make and earn from 😛 )

    Well if I wanted to mine with my CPU what would be the best software to use?

    Thanks will read through it when I get home 🙂 I was mining with a CPU before but I got such a low hash and I’m sure that I could get a much better hash with my current CPU.

    What parameters are you using for your 5770? I have 2 of them myself in my ‘normal’ pc and getting 120 ~ 140 max out of them.
    [/quote]

    New settings as of yesterday 🙂

    Core i7 860 @ 2,8 Ghz
    16 GB RAM
    64 bit Win 7 Ultimate

    Cgminer 2.11.3

    Fan 59%
    Engine 875 Mhz
    Memory : 1250 Mhz
    Voltage : 1,200V
    Intensity 16

    Currently hashing at 225 Khash 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Nice!

    You only changed Intensity to 16? Nothing with thread-concurrency, worksize etc?


  • | Tip Armandoke

    nope, all standard 2.1.1.3 settings

    nothing changed except for the intensity

    Maybe you have a version with less shaders than mine, I think you can verify this with CPU-Z

    And that’s a possibility, but I wasn’t aware there are/were two different models/releases of the 5770. o-o

    Well that was a certainly an interesting read, the more you know. 🙂
    A little curious as to why 80 shaders are locked down initially, it’s not like the sold this cards at a cheaper price. Hmm.

    Current setup
    None are headless atm though.
    Running cudaminer and cgminer atm.

    Machine 1
    [b]GTX 560 SE[/b] - 61 KHash/s @ 830 clock [i](get around 90 stable without anything else messing about (could probably get 110KHash/s headless))[/i]
    [b]HD 5850[/b] - 206 KHash/s @ 725 clock [i](get 300KHash/s headless)[/i]

    Machine 2
    [b]HD 5750[/b] - 108 KHash/s @ 900 clock

    Im only running 1x HD5850 @ 310 KH/s 😎
    [/quote]

    Same… I get about 380-390 if I set I18 but then I can’t use the machine. With cpu mining included I get about 410.

    depressing when you see pics of people who’ve just bought things specifically for mining. oO

    It is a little, especially when I think ‘why can’t I afford to do that’ xD
    That aside, I’ve just used my gaming rigs, not brought any hardware specific for mining really. (If I was, I’d of brought 3 x 7950s instead of 2 x 7970s =w= )

    I use minerd (pooler/cpuminer from github) on them under Ubuntu. Some old dual core cpus can even score strangely high, probably because they have a higher rate which these days get’s compensated with more cores (and lower clock speed). I run on an old toshiba Notebook, that’s at least 6 years old now with 26K hash even.

    These are speeds I read on the accepted messages from minerd, so they are the real ones, not some odd ones some pool s sometimes report on.

    Good grief, that threat and setup of Detritus’ makes me flail and want to do it o-o;


  • | Tip yeltz

    I’m hardly a hardcore miner, but my 7850 is pushing along at ~302kh/s.
    I’ve had it up significantly higher, but am pretty satisfied considering I’m only working at intensity 13.

    It means I can do other things on my rig… like read this pretty forum 🙂

    7850 @ 365 KH/s
