CaffCast Tutorials – How To Mine Dogecoin Litecoin – CudaMiner 4th February – Latest Version Update!

hello guys and welcome back to another calf cast today we're carrying on with our doke coin series we're gonna be doing something a little bit different though we're not going to be doing the tips and gambling video today this is an update for the mining video that we did which has become so popular thanks to everybody who's watched the original so far and if you haven't I strongly recommend going to watch that first before this video and because that's gonna cover a lot of the basic stuff before we move on to some of the more advanced things that I'm gonna be discussing in this video I said when I actually made the videos themselves that I would be keeping them up to date with the latest information and now that there has been a new update to kuda minor which is again include improved performance by sort of 10 to 15% I thought it was a good idea to make a video for you guys using the configuration that I've got for my GTX 780 I've managed to get around about 600 killer hashes per second now so Nvidia is getting pushed up and up slowly but surely ati still obviously are outperforming us in terms of killer hashes / power what consumption but for anybody out there who has an Nvidia graphics card or just prefers a Nvidia then this is the video for you but do make sure you've watched the first one so to start off with as you guys can see we've still got the December 18th version of CUDA minor installed on this computer I want to do everything with you guys and also I've added a little kind of feature for where I click on the mouse if that is useful let me know if not I'll turn it off because it's just really to help you guys visualize what I'm doing so if you're going to Google Chrome here and we do the same thing as we always do head over to the CUDA minor conversation on Bitcoin talk that's where everything has kept these days this is the new version now looks like there's actually been an even more updated version that's been released here so we've got a set 7th of February so that was yesterday with a Stratham fix for Macs coin and then again for max coin launch they've got so they've got two separate versions for other coins which you might be interested in and if you're watching this video to try to learn how to mine a script in general and the script you're looking for is max coin then those are going to be the launchers for you but for us working on dogecoin we only need to worry about the 2014 February the 4th version that's what we need to run so if you click that to download it it'll take us over to the mega website where the files are kept from the Bitcoin Hawk website so we'll get that going and hopefully it won't take too long so I have to keep you guys for too long but whilst that's happening one thing to bear in mind the need these talk to you guys about anyway so there's ways we can do that now one thing to bear in mind is that any of the original configuration files that you guys have set up for your copies of q demoted before if you're coming from an older version of QT miner to this newer version now you need to make sure that you don't use the old configuration files the aqua figurations files for me didn't work at all they did a CPU could not validate and I will show you that once the new version has been downloaded but for a lot of people they're showing actually a decrease in performance there's a lot of configurations that we need to go through which I will do in this video so for now I guess because it's gonna take quite a while we'll wait for that to download and I'll be right back with you guys ok now we're back keep in mind I just and I did itself took a little bit of while I think the server load might be a little bit high in the at the moment I'm not quite sure but anyway you've got that now so we can close that window down the best thing to probably do if you are looking for configuration files law like I was talking to you about before is to go through this thread it's actually a really useful conversation that's going on there's a long talk about script J and some more advanced cryptocurrencies I say advanced I mean more sort of like power-hungry and consuming but for those who are watching this video for dogecoin or for litecoin or any of those sort of cryptic Suz then you don't need to worry about that but there is some good conversation about sort of configuration files and things that you can go through anyway the best thing for us to do now is to extract our kuda minor we've got here I'm sure you guys have your own software but when we're are tends to be the best for me anyway so we open that file up and same as before we've got a few bits and pieces there they're pretty much exactly the same as you guys can see here you've got the SRC license and Read Me the only thing that we're really interested in is the x64 section because that's the same as what we were using last time obviously we we have the the bat file which we which we need to use to set up the configuration bar so we can do that with by taking the old one and and dragging it across so what I'll do is I will take this file across directly this is actually not a pre-configured file this is a one that still sets up configuration for an auto-tuned now those of you guys who don't really understand what all that means if you go into the readme file that's actually in the 2014 February 4th so it's the latest version and you can find out a lot about the configurations that you that you need to run through here so it explains to you that if I open up the stress test file that we made in the last video you can see here that I've got these predefined things and we did talk about them last time but I'll just go through it real quick with you guys locates D as you guys can see here is for devices gives a comma-separated list of cue device IDs to operate on device IDs start counting from 0 what I've actually done with my system because I'm running on Haswell and the integrated graphics card on the CPU is good enough to do most tasks and play most kind of like games that I that I tend to play these days and I'm actually running my 780 exclusively without anything plugged into it the way that I imagine Eve this was to set the graphics card to be on even if nothing's plugged into it in the bios of my motherboard you results may vary but it has meant that I can do a couple of things which I'll talk to you guys about a little later on but of d-0 for us here actually chooses my GTX 780 so chances are if you're owning one graphics code on your PC I even if you're using your monitor on your integrator codes card it will still be d0h is the hash parallel as you guys can see here the best thing to do with that is to run it on one I've found that to be the most efficient because it enables multi-threaded hashing on the CPU it doesn't just dumping everything on GPU so your cuticles can spend time doing what they need to do in actually hash rather than half are to worry about the parallels we've also got I equals one now that one is the interactive mode this is the one that I suggest for anybody who's still running on their main graphics card and it wants to still be able to use their computer one is what you need to use if you're running like me with your graphics card actually not doing anything apart from mining exclusively or if you're running a second graphics card and your second graphics card you are talking to – exclusively then you want to run i0 because that means that the computer will recognize that if you guys are are looking to to run as as basically as balls to the walls fast as you possibly can on your graphics card then I 0 is what you want to do if your computer only has one graphics card and that's also powering your motor then one is what you need to use the final configuration that you need to worry about is the launch configuration now the best thing to do for this is to actually go back to the website and find out what what you need to run in terms of your launch configuration now the new version of CUDA minor is actually really really good for auto-tuning your graphics card so chances are if you just want to get it running the best thing to do is just have this set up so choose d0 if your graphics card is in the zero position if it's not you'll probably know about it so if just if it were cells d0 h14 hash parallel I won for your interactive mode so you can keep using the card otherwise again you'll know about ten you'll put a zero and L Auto that's the best way of running that o is for your stratum U is for your username and P is for your password if you run that configuration it will automatically detect everything for you and and hopefully run normally what we'll do is we'll actually run that excuse me and we will find out whether or not that's going to configure probably properly it should do so here we go so the graphics card itself it has been detected on device zero as you guys can see here it tells you a couple of bits of information about the card itself and it starts to perform an auto-tuned now as we discussed in the last video as well you can do some overclocking but it really isn't necessary unless you really know what you're doing and if you do know what you're doing then there's no point in me going over it in too much detail but the I find that the best thing to bear in mind is that you want to keep your frontside bus usage at around about 80% anything lower and your hash rate suffers and anything higher you don't get an increase in hash rate for but you do get an increase in in voltage so that's kind of pointless really because you're just using more power to get the same amount of hashes so yeah I strongly recommend against that and also the important thing to do is to make sure that your fans are kicking in as well if you guys are finding this all a bit too complicated don't worry there's going to be a CUDA manager tutorial video going up very shortly CUDA manager is a piece of software that will configure these things for you automatically so if you're not okay with computers and you'd rather just sort of get a chance to offload all the details and the configuration and stuff – way to a piece of software then I'll show you guys how to do that in another video so keep yourselves tuned in on the CAF cast and don't forget to subscribe so you're the first to know about that video so just to finish off on the video today we're going to just quickly go through to the Google Docs spreadsheets here now this is the best place to go for your specific configure and this is actually what I'm running to be able to get my graphics card to run at the 600 kilo hashes I'm sure you guys can remember when I first started these videos on the the mining system we were running around about I think it was 460 or 450 something like that to get a 150 kill in crease in less than a month on the same card is absolutely crazy at least I think so anyway so what you can do is you can go through to find it find your cards and then check to find out whether or not your system matches up to what they've got here so for example I'm running 64-bit version of Windows 7 I'm not running the EVGA classified overclocked card I'm running the Zeus one but I am running a soft overclock of myself they're able to achieve a 650 hash rate on the 214 Oh 202 which is the same as the 402 the we're running and you guys can see that it has all the information in here that you need to worry about so we have the driver version we have the GPU core clock offset we have the memory clock offset everything so you can see him as I said to you guys before most people are lowering their memory clock to keep the frontside bus around 80 percent which is which is what you want to aim for but if that doesn't make sense to you then don't worry about it it's not it's not too much of a concern and then finally you have the launch config this is what I was talking to you guys about before now if we go back to our system here you can see that on my card right now which is not running an overclock it is running at default it is running on default stock settings and the card has been auto-tuned itself it's still able to achieve 470 killer hashes per second that's just on its own standard but I'll show you what happens if we if we modify this for our system specifically I'm gonna run the overclock that I always run on my system here I have to add it in manually every time I restart the computer don't ever go past one 200 on the GPU voltage the these settings obviously are not the the standard ones that everybody uses I would strongly recommend not just flicking your card into these settings just like that because it can taken serious damage or TPU if you don't know what the your GPU is able to handle I do know what my GPU is capable of so I know that I can come I can flick the the GPU boost right up I can flick the memory clock right down like that and I know that my computer is able to handle those settings so I'm going to apply that to my card and then I'm going to go over into our configuration file which is just here and we're going to change this just slightly so we've got H which was our hash parallel is one which is what we want i we're going to change over to zero because I know that card is not being used for anything else and then my launch configuration I'm actually going to run what this guy here has recommended which is Z 1224 now for argument's sake the best thing to do if you go onto the back onto that thread again in to hear this conversation thread there is information about which letter you should be using for which card and I believe there might also be some information in that readme file as well if you can't figure it out do feel free to leave a message on the on the video and I'll try and help you out as best I can but I do know that the Z also stands for tea and the tea is the the Titan series ghost card so the 7 Series and the Titan cards all run on T which is the same as running on Z actually it's pretty obvious as well if you look in here because you can go through and you can see right so K series graphics cards that's the six series and then F that's the Fermi card some you know the Fermi cards are the other four series so it's it's pretty straightforward to find out you know what you should be running but if I run this setup here there are a couple of other things that we can do to modify it slightly and I'll just talk to you guys about those really quickly before we finish off the video because obviously everybody wants to get the maximum they possibly can out of their Great Scott texture cache is another one that is probably quite useful too I have found personally that C tends to get them best out of what what my car is able to run to that is C 2 sorry 1 is what I tend to run as you guys can see here one uses a 1d cache whereas to use a 2d texture cache layout so I mean well if we try running 2 just for an example here I'm gonna save that file you can look up other sort of options here that you can play with I mean feel free to you know mess with these the good thing is that obviously your your card itself is going to look after itself in terms of fan speed and you know safeguards are built into your computer so that if you reach a certain temperature it should shut off automatically but I really can't be held responsible for you blowing up your computer so as long as we're clear and feel free to go nuts and mess with that so if we go back into here and we go into our graphics card here running the stress test dot bat file that we've just changed didn't run now is this is something that happens to a couple of guys it just sort of like does that and just comes up really quick and that's it it says JSON decode of two failed and sure to do that quite a few times so that means that this is not compatible so that's probably why I was running it in c1 I was trying I think why don't you see one rather than see – and that doesn't work either that's interesting so what we're gonna do is we're gonna change actually I think I know why that's happening it's probably because that's not a capital Zed but because I know that I'm running T for Titan I'm gonna change that over to a tee just because I want to try to get this working for you guys as quickly as I can here we'll take out the C command for now and we save that and try again there we go right so the cecum and there was causing some problems with my system not quite sure exactly why that is we'll have to look at that in more detail but it's probably because I made a stupid typo or something and that's what you guys need to bear in mind is that can happen quite a lot and I see people commenting on my videos that they are having those sort of problems if the thing just blinks up but try deleting a couple of commands then you can work out which one is not working very well but as you guys can see today I am running at least a 600 kill hashes we've got a small one there which obviously was accepted early and we'll let it run too for a little bit too so you show you guys that I do have an average of 600 kilo hashes per second that's an average of 600 conacher's per second with a soft overclock of 1046 megahertz with a lowered memory clock of 5000 and that's only due to the fact that we've upgraded the software and that's it so thanks very much for watching guys I hope this video has made things a little bit clearer for you if you are still unsure feel free to leave a comment on the video and I'll try my best to help you out if you feel like this video is a bit over your head don't worry there will be another video going out very shortly which explains to you about kewda manager and how that is a bit more straightforward and easier to use so until next time guys thanks so much for watching and I'll see you all very soon take care you've been watching the cast we don't for get to check all the videos be sure to subscribe to us if you like what you see that's why I'll know to make more and that you really like me so you've been watching the calf cast we hope you have enjoyed our show don't forget to check our own above all videos
