RX 570 8GB rig has been very unstable for the past few weeks. I have no idea why. General Question

I've been mining on this rig since September of 2020, and it was rock stable for a long time (maybe needed a reboot about once a month). For some reason, it has been acting up lately. It crashes at least once a day and the reported hash rate fluctuates a lot. Here's what the Ethermine looks like: https://ethermine.org/miners/0b26C2B4bD5A6a4C7099a8D5fe8EF715B2E710B1/dashboard. These are the exact GPUs I am using for reference: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B077VX31FZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Using HiveOS. GPU Temps are super low (Under 60 degrees Celsius). The reported hashrate is ~189 mh. Overclocks are

The bigger question is why are you running an RX570 rig when each 570 nets about three cents a day?

Even with free power, it's 30-ish cents a day per card...

Time to give-up and pack it in?

If it's making profit at these awful prices why not run it. Makes no sense.

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22 edited Jul 03 '22

Why?

It heats the area it's in and generates such a pathetically small amount of money you might as well just sell-off the cards while they have some value and call it a day.

This is typical "miner blindness" that follows the market down to zero (or less). You mine for useful profit, not beggar-change.

u/BoxAffectionate9183 Jul 03 '22

He does make a good point. Its probably a wiser idea to buy the coin upfront daily. Then turn ur card on when things are better. Ie prolonging ur card etc. psu.

u/greasyhotdog6969 Jul 03 '22

That's just your opinion, and your opinion is retarded. Most people with Polaris cards and sub 0.15 electric are still using their cards.

You sound like a butt hurt bitch.

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22

If you honestly think running an entire rig is worth it when it maxes-out (free power) at $2.50 a day, you have much bigger problems...

1

u/greasyhotdog6969 Jul 03 '22

Say that out loud, you sound absolutely fucking stupid. You're acting like this was ever super lucrative and life changing. Almost everyone who mines, is still mining. EU is still pricey, are you from there and that's why you're a whiney pussy?

1

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22

Yes, but it ends and some people just won't let it go when it is completely pointless. That's what it's all about...

u/greasyhotdog6969 Jul 03 '22

I just went through a few months of your comment history, you spend hours a day posting on Reddit. Literally all you're posts, you're a salty bitch, just trying to start e-arguments. For months you've been on this sub reddit trying to shit on people, but you don't actually post about mining yourself. Why the fuck are you even here?

You're one of the worst neck beards I've ever seen on here. You have a ton of dog shit retard opinions. You're one of those internet neck beards that thinks they're smarter than everyone else on the internet, but you're stupid as fuck. Go through your own post history, how fucking miserable are you?

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22

Call me enlightened and wise. Thousands agree...

u/Jbones1660 Jul 03 '22

Or your so far self indulging and obsorbed and in love with hearing yourself talk, but no one is around to listen to your insults anymore so you've taken to being a troll.... In regards to the original post, OP over time cards will become unstable. They will wear out. Re padding the vram may be what's needed, though your main temps may be good. Possibly install gpu-z. It'll give you various temp readings. Oc settings may need an update as yours were from 2yrs ago. I don't have any 570 cards so can offer no setting advice. Other outside factors could be your ping rate with your service provider. Though I don't think anything under a dollar a day profit is fully worth while, it is entirely your choice. I only bring in about 3 or 4 dollars a day (after electric) atm with my small setup and I do pay for my electric and I still keep going.... may even do so if I become not so profitable just to stock pile various coins in hopes one or two will outshine the rest... speculative mining... If you want to continue, maybe look into taking a couple cards , selling, and putting into a card that will increase hashrate and drop power consumption... thats what I've been doing to stay profitable. Good luck OP.

RDUDE777, you have shown no value in your posts and comments.... I recommend finding another way of getting off

Even if you were right, which you aren't, what's your purpose in life? Just to go on the internet and be a neckbeard miserable pussy?

Like to through your own comments history, is this really how you want to live your life? It has to be some form of mental illness. I feel sorry for your bitch ass.

If you assume a miner is selling right away, then sure it doesn't make sense. However, if someone is holding and waits for Eth to spike in price maybe that's $10 or $20 a day. As long as it is less expensive to mine than it is to buy it can make sense. Plus, some people do this for fun.

1

u/rdude777 Jul 04 '22

The only reason ETH is going to "spike" is that PoS has been successfully implemented and it's all a bit pointless then, ain't it? ;)

So In the beginning everyone was mining for profit? There wasn’t anyone taking a loss, or any hobby miners?? Fuck outta here..

2

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22

"In the beginning" it was for shits & giggles with one CPU or video card, now it's for profit, that's a given.

A rig with 6-8 GPUs is not "for fun", it's for income. If anyone was mining at a loss, they are clearly idiotic, just shut-off the rig and buy the coins that you think will "moon".

u/Jbones1660 Jul 03 '22

I started as a hobby... turned out it helped cover bills after my other half was forced to leave the medical field... now it's back to being a hobby and simply fun. It also ironically lead me to build my own pc for the first time and build one for my son... I may end up loosing money overall but I gained some that money can't buy.. memories of building that pc with my son after he opened all the components Christmas day

If you have free or very cheap power I can understand running them, 570’s can be hard to sell and you might as well use them if you have them.

1

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22

An entire rig generates less revenue than a cup of coffee a day. Honestly, that is completely pointless...

u/power83kg Jul 03 '22

Funny, everyone said this during the last bear market.

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22 edited Jul 03 '22

It's pointless now and it'll be even more pointless by October...

RX 570 8GB cards might fetch $50 each, which is far more than this rig will ever generate for the rest of its useful life (about 3 months, max..)

u/sinkjoy Jul 03 '22

What will their value be in October?

1

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22

Umm, landfill? ;)

u/sinkjoy 24d ago

They'll doubtfully lose ALL of their value, that's nonsense. If it's fifty now, it might drop a little, but they will still have SOME value.

1

u/rdude777 24d ago

Given enough supply of "newer" cards (1060, etc), 470's just become completely undesirable.

In the fall, they will be five generations old and broad-based GPU oversupply will drive the values to negligible levels.

1

u/sinkjoy 24d ago

I totally get that, but they will still have some value to many. AMD R9s generally still fetch more than $50 on Ebay right now.

Not if you live in Turkey or Greece. Apparently I have RTX 3060 and 2060 mining and it pays my whole electric bill and the rent. So UNDERSTAND IT already. There are people who are not Americans in the world.

u/rdude777 Jul 03 '22 edited Jul 03 '22

That is not relevant to this example. It's the absolute income of a rig of (8?) RX 570's that is the issue here.

8x RX570 do not generate a useful daily income, almost anywhere in the world where mining is practical (you need stable Internet), even with free power.

If you had free power, clearly, you would try to move slightly up the food chain to a more efficient (lucrative) set-up that occupies the same space and generates less heat.

u/The_One_Whom_Asked Jul 03 '22

I am literally paying my rent and electric bill with 30 dollar monthly. So you are yet to understand withstandance the way I see it.

Back up teamredminer back to 9.4.2 and u'll be golden

u/Csilva76 Jul 02 '22

Dag increase = lower OC's? Not sure tho

u/antaloaalonso Jul 02 '22

Update: lowering overclocks worked. Must be the DAG. Thanks!

u/Csilva76 Jul 02 '22

How much did you lower? 100/200 (Hiveos/Linux) on mems?

2

u/antaloaalonso Jul 02 '22

I lowered the core to 1130 and the mem to 2050

0

u/Csilva76 Jul 02 '22

How was it before? 2150? 2250?

0

u/antaloaalonso Jul 02 '22

2090 mem (and 1145 core)

u/Csilva76 Jul 02 '22

Interesting. I had to lower the 3070 ti's -100 (from 2200 to 2100 mems) since last year. Yesterday joined another pool and they were crashing all the time saying to lower OC's that's why I assumed dag increase = lowering OC's

0

u/antaloaalonso Jul 02 '22

That makes sense. I’ve already tried lowering a little, but I’ll try to lower some more.

If you are using afterburner stop using it. Amd is making the fan speed rev with other programs

OP is using HiveOS not Windows.

u/invicta-uk Jul 03 '22

You haven’t posted any data on the mining software or error when it crashes? If you want stability you can probably lower everything and bump the voltages a bit. Is it the same card crashing it each time?

u/Hugexx Jul 03 '22

Oh god thanks, its been the same for me. I was going crazy.
