The average window AC unit uses a similar amount of power as an average ASIC miner, or 2 6-GPU riser rigs.
Miners tend to have more then two rigs though and they're on 24/7 where a window A/C unit is rarely on 50% of the time over the course of a day even on the hottest days.
 
The BIGGEST Window A/C unit I'm aware of uses about 1.5 times the power draw of a Bitmain S9.
 
It's not ALL power companies that care - it's the ones that are in very low cost electric areas that are getting a LOT of cryptocoin miners relocating for the low power cost (Chelan County Washington being probably the FIRST) that are doing the "mining specific rate" stuff, as it's having a MAJOR impact on their planned "growth" budget and power availability.
 
The various documentation on just how MUCH power folks wanted to add to Chelan's grid in just a one year period is an eye opener - and makes it understandable that the PUD decided they "needed to DO something about it".
We're talking requests totalling HUNDREDS OF MEGAWATTS in the appx. 1 year before they imposed a "moritorium" on new large projects to research the issue and figure out what to do about it.
 
I don't like the result they came up with, but I can understand WHY they did it (and what they don't realize is that it CAN be worked around easily by small mining operations, fairly easily by medium, and even the LARGE operations could work around it with some effort).
 
 




Hi QuintLeo, sorry, I know this is not related but I see that you are crunching on distributed.net, was wondering if you can help me out here. I've a few amd gpu on a mining rig all connected via risers, can't seem to get dnetc to run on Windows 10.
Do I require to at least plug 1 of the gpu into PCI-E slot as primary gpu while keeping the rest of the cards on riser in order to get the dnetc running?

I don't use 10 at all any more - suffered through it on my main gaming rig for about 3 months before I ripped it back out and rolled back to 7 - and at this point I refuse to even look at 10 period.
I can't think of any reason why dnetc would require a GPU on the motherboard though - several of my mining rigs are all risers but run dnetc on the APU just fine.
Are you sure you're using the correct version (the very first entry, Win32/OpenCL, is the one you want for use with GPUs on Windows)?

Re: Help can't seem to get dnetc to run on Windows 10 2018/11/17 06:13:21 (permalink)
Hmm.. yes, I'm using the Win32/OpenCL version.
 
OS: Windows 10 64-bit (1709)
AMD graphics card driver: Win10-64bit-radeon-software-adrenalin-edition-18.6.1-june13
dnetc client: Windows 32bit [x86/OpenCL] v2.9112.521
 
Rig Setup:
Intel iGPU enabled as primary display
2 x AMD RX580, 1 x Vega56, 1 x R9 290 - connected via PCI-E 1x risers
This is a crypto mining setup and I wanted to switch over to dnetc to crunch some stats but getting the below errors when running the dnetc client on Windows 10. Seems like the crunching is only working for the Intel iGPU.
I wonder if this is OS issue and if the same setup would work on Windows 7

It's picking up your on-CPU gpu and trying to use it but you apparently don't have openCL drivers installed for that - which throws everything else off.
If you can get OpenCL installed for that, it should start working correctly.
Workaround if you can't is to run one client per GPU pointing it at each specific GPU, running each copy of the client in it's own subdirectory.

Kinda lost now.. not sure if this is driver related.. should I install older AMD drivers for dnetc?

You can't go too old on the AMD drivers or you lose support for the Vega entirely.
I'm also not sure how far back support for your Hawaii card goes - they stopped support for at least a year possibly 2 after the 15.12 version before they added it back in again.
What driver version are you running?

Now that vorsholk has stopped his abuse, I'm returning to folding.

I prefer 16.9.2 in general for a machine that is just crunching, but that version does not support Hawaii at all.
I'd suggest trying a version newer than your current one, in the hope that AMD actually fixed Hawaii support - I remember them adding it fairly recently but not which version.
A better overall idea would be to split the Hawaii (and your "older than RX and Vega" cards) into it's own machine, run LINUX and the 15.12 drivers on that machine.

Re: Help can't seem to get dnetc to run on Windows 10 2018/11/21 22:59:16 (permalink)
I thinking it may not be hawaii issue cause by disabling the r9 290 the rest of the cards still can't start crunching w the dnetc client.

Sounds like an plan. I'd probably run nix on usb thumbdrive and see if the cards would work with dnetc client else remove r9 290 and try again.

Thanks :)

Actually, I was getting Hawaii (R9-290/290x) and Tahiti (R9 280/280x) confused again.
It's Tahiti they took forever getting support for in the drivers, not Hawaii - Hawaii just took a while.
 
On the other hand, mixing generations does tend to cause issues - and adding that Intel into the mix just makes it worse.

Finally, dnetc recognizes all of the cards and crunches without any issues under Ubuntu.

Begone Win7/Win10, nix still rox.

Thanks :)
