    How much can I make mining crytocurrencies? 

    And which coins are the most profitable?


    FYI, for one of my CS classes I am taking in college, I am given free credits for Google cloud. Except when I am debugging, my servers sit idle most of the time. I have 20 instances of servers equipped with xenon processors and 32 gigs or so rams for me to play with. With these compute power, how much money can I make from mining? 



    I do not think you can earn anything worthy with those CPUs but I might be wrong.

    However, mining on GCP is forbidden in their ToS.

    WCG doesn't have any GPU compatible projects right now so you just have the client running without it doing anything?

    Oh God... I totally forgot it is WCG and not collatz... My GPU is crunching but CPU is idling.


    Actually, I just added WCG to my BOINC manager 4 days ago but I haven't done a single WU for it...  No idea why I got that email and notification.

    Only guess I can give you is either you finished your first job of a new project or it was a legitimate glitch. The African Rainfall Project showed up not long ago and even for my 5960X @ 4.5HGHz each job takes about 12hrs. Maybe it was one of those?

    Hardly possible. I stopped using CPU on BOINC almost a week ago.

    Could be your first badge with them.  WCG bases badges off total compute time done.

    Yeah, that could be it...

    I just broke 100D per day run time. Is that a lot?.../s



    I'm afraid you may be the only one my dude. None of my machines got that message. Unless you're new to WCG then yeah everyone got that.

    Yeah, I am actually new, started not even a month ago. What does it actually mean?

    I completed "the first task" way before today. However, I am not sure what they mean by "Research task".

    Has this been sent to everyone or just me? 😀

    Ah, that ambient temperature is probably helping out a lot.

    The Maxwell and Pascals really like when the core temp can stay low.  Not sure how Turing behaves, as I have yet to mess with one but those probably behave similar.

    Well yeah, ambient helps but it's still a monster of overclocker

    damn nice,

    don’t know, but my VII hates OC when folding.


    BTW: is that one GPU with you 17mPPD? 😮

    hahha, hell no. I have 1070 and that 1080 Ti 24/7 and one 1080 Ti in main rig is going on and off through the day, about 6-7hours daily crunching

    Update, just notice Collatz is doing maintenance on the website.  So, the servers for WUs maybe down as well for maintenance.

    Yeah, noticed as well.

    Darn, that clock at that voltage.  Yeah, I say that is golden one.  49C temp too.  Water cool or air cooled?


    Re-looks at pic, ok, how high of a power limit does that have?  I see it at 90%, but it looks like it goes pretty darn far. 

    Ah, sorry. Forgot to mention. I use 90% only while doing collatz as it pulls around 100W less than when it is max overclocked and adds maybe 5-10 seconds per WU so this is a sweet spot for it.


    While folding however, I just put everything to maximum and that is when it achieves 2063 Core Clock.


    120% is maximum PL.


    Also, this GPU is sitting in open case in relatively cold place (CNC machines are located there but they are currently not working so ambient temperature is between 15C and 25C, but usually closer to 15C) and one corsair fan is sitting on top of the card and pulling out hot air. I'll try to make some photos tomorrow morning.


    And yeah, that is truly one golden card there... My watercooled Aorus 1080 Ti is nowhere near that level of OC... Maximum I can put on it is +60 which yields around 2025-2050CC but it pulls around 150W more than usual.

    Holy moly, what model is that other 1080Ti?


    Hmmm, 3 slot cooler.  Is that a ZOTAC?

    I had a 980Ti ZOTAC AMP that was a gold GPU (it OC to 1600MHz on stock BIOS on its air cooler).


    So far what I manage with my FTW3 model:


    Power limit of 70% with clocks at 1650-1683MHz.  It is doing WUs around 4:11-4:13 mark.

    The OS is W10 LSTB 2016 with 436.15 Nvidia drivers. 

    I know, the OS is quite due for an update.  But heck, it is still getting security updates.

    GTX 1080 Ti Gigabyte 11GB Gaming, cost me 350 euro and here you can see my current settings:



    Max CC was 2063 while folding.

    Hahaha, do not worry. 80% of my computing power is currently on BOINC, soon to be returned to folding after cleaning and reshuffling some systems components.

    t10 is a long way off for me and i can't afford the power upkeep

    Yeah, but my current rank is not too far for you.

    Interesting the difference your 1080Ti acts with power limits.  Makes me think it is the difference in boost.


    My 1080Ti at 70% power limit been averaging around 4:15.  Its core temps staying around 60-61C.

    Currently where it is set.

    I figured it would act like that since it is power limited all the way until 130PL, after that it is voltage limited. Didn't try moving CC above my usual as I like them here. 

    Mine on 70% drops CC way too low to be viable.

    Nice job!

    i am currently still figuring out how much I can push without doing Igors more power mod (I know the card can handle it, but I don’t want a 1kW PC) and now I am sitting at ~3:45 per WU. I’ll see if that’s stable and tomorrow I’ll try to dial in something reasonable 

    I will lose approximately 1.2M (10% loss in PPD) (11.76M is maximum and 10.56M is with current settings) per day but I will save 0.5$ per day (38% saving).

  12. Also, looks like I found a sweet spot for my 1080 Ti while crunching on collatz


    Adding every 20% of Power Limit, adds about 50W to power usage.

    1. 150 PL - 360W PU - WUs of 3:40

    2. 110 PL - 275W PU - WUs of 3:55

    2. 100 PL - 250W PU - WUs of 4:00

    3. 95 PL - 230W PU - WUs of 4:05

    3. 90 PL - 220W PU - WUs of 4:10

    3. 85 PL - 210W PU - WUs of 4:15

    4. 80 PL - 200W PU - WUs of 4:20

    5. 75 PL - 190 W PU - WUs of 4:30

    Ok interesting... as soon as I OC my mem on the VII (even +50mhz) Core clocks go way down and I am loosing considerable amounts of time/WU.

    therefore I’ll stick with 2,1G on core and leave mem stock

    Well, AMD is not same as Nvidia, and Memory OC for AMD helps in Folding as far as I know. But I am not sure for BOINC.

    Also, I have only used AMD GPUs that are from GCN 1.0 architecture up to GCN 1.3. I've never had experience with GCN 1.4 (Vega and above).

    Do you guys also OC the Memory on your cards or only the core?

    i am not sure if memory would be beneficial because collatz is using verry little mem on my VII

    I OC everything. Memory is always +200 on my 1080 Ti. Gaming/Folding/BOINC.

    However, I do not think that it helps that much for Folding and BOINC.

    For gaming I can push it to around +500/750 for less memory intense games and for Folding and BOINC, I think it worked fine even on +1000. So I just pulled it back to avoid crashes/artifacts and it is a fine clock overall.

  15. I am not sure why and how, but threads=7 seem to work better than threads=8 for my 1080 Ti as it finishes WUs around 10-20 seconds faster.

    Threads=6 however is same as threads=7, and as usual threads=9 crashes WUs instantly. And any less than threads=6 is BAD (timewise).


    lut_size=16 is bad

    lut_size=17 is better

    lut_size=18 is best

    lut_size=19 is awful

    lut_size=20 do not even try this on 1080 Ti


    sieve_size=25 destroys my ears due to coil whine and it is bad timewise

    sieve_size=28 is good

    sieve_size=29 is almost same as 30

    sieve_size=30 is best

    Anything above 30 is instant crash


    Other settings do not seem to affect speed.

    I had a 980Ti ZOTAC AMP that was a gold GPU (it OC to 1600MHz on stock BIOS on its air cooler).

    No idea, I bought that other 1080Ti only for folding month... It came without box and it cost me 350 euro. I'll have to check tomorrow as it is in remote location near my ASICs.
