    Worth it to start bitcoin mining with RPi now?

    I made ROI on my Antminer U2. I mined other SHA256 coins like P$ (Solomine + Pool) , Zetacoin, Mazacoin and even threw it on the BC Multipool for a tiny continued interest stake once a day. All in all ive made about double what the unit cost me, but ive mined a lot of coins and changed coins /...

    The Altcoin Thread

    I understand more now, but I am still, for lack of a better word... bamboozled! I'm no longer mining for the sake of converting all proceeds to BTC, im slowly building a portfolio of coins that I feel have long term growth potential looking forward. Ive always been interested in PTS, but my...

    The Altcoin Thread

    Thanks for this. I just started mining on YPOOL and I have to admit that im a bit confused. From what I understand, PTS are now one in the same with Bitshares, and that you could convert PTS to Bitshares during a certain timeframe / block. It would appear that that time is now over, however this...

    Most basic phone possible

    Hey [H], I realize this may not be the best place to ask but I thought it wouldn't hurt. I am looking to "downgrade" from my iPhone 4 and get the most basic cell phone / plan possible. I'm not looking for another smartphone or switching to Android / BB / WP et cetera. Ideally I would like a...

    At this rate I will have mined my 1st LTC by the end of the promotion! I'm totally serious here guys :cool:
  6. S double LTC rewards for 1 week

    Currently being at 1.25 isn't so bad. Clevermining has been between 105-97% LTC profitability today and I imagine other multipools are having similar issues. 2X was great, but 1.25 is still better than any other prospect that I can see at the moment.

    DedicatedPool - "We are not a bank" - Bye coins

    I mined BC there, and just like every other pool they have a signup page with a TOS agreement. Whether or not thats applicable here is irrelevant. For lack of a better analogy, that makes them like an employer to me. They provide a pool where I perform work at, they pay me based upon how much...
  8. S double LTC rewards for 1 week

    It was fun while it lasted. Rewards were halved after the 25 g/hs mark, and by this morning it didn't make sense to keep on mining. On the plus side of things, I now have 0.5 LTC!! :p

    The Altcoin Thread

    I really have a soft spot for DOGE, it was my first crypto and I made a great profit on it. I bought my R9 290 with DOGE from, even now the thought that I mined a new graphics card is kinda crazy. I cashed out some of my DOGE between 150-200 to invest in other coins and have some...

    stilts bios's are back

    Thanks for the info! Gaming is secondary to me, so I decided to give the Stilt BIOS a try.... Initially started with the V3C 1.17 BIOS. Flash was successful, but mining caused the driver to crash after a minute or so. I went to the V38 1.2 BIOS next and ive been running about 10mins now without...

    Are the Corsair CX series a risk?

    I just picked up a CX750 modular for $70+ tax at Best Buy last week. I had an older Antec that worked great, just didn't have enough juice for my new GPU. Since installing, its been solid. Ive been mining 24/7 and haven't had a single hiccup besides overclocking components too far, but that...

    What video card has served you the longest before upgrading?

    ATI Radeon 4850 512MB Sapphire brand, this was the best video card of all time IMO. I bought the card new at release (Late 2007/Early 2008) and just took it out of service last week in 2014! Ive went through so many different CPU's and Motherboards over the years, but the trusty 4850 never...

    New PC - video card not starting

    Try flushing out the BIOS by unplugging the machine and removing the coin battery from the motherboard. Leave it for 10 mins or so. If that dosen't work re-seat your components, especially your ram! I spent the last day going CRAZY trying to get my computer to boot with similar issues as yours...

    No OSD / FPS Counter Software Working - Radeon

    Did some more hunting around and found a solution to the issue. Apparently certain Catalyst driver sets after 12.2 may not contain a file named "atipdlxx.dll". If this file isn't installed everything will work fine, but programs like RP, AB and ATT will cease to function. The fix is as...

    No OSD / FPS Counter Software Working - Radeon

    Brent - Uninstalled and reinstalled all mentioned programs. I also tried installing with administrator privileges; same result. Luke - The 4850 is now a legacy product and because of this the card is no longer supported in the monthly driver releases. I double checked and 12.6 is the latest...

    AMD price cuts on 7900 and 7800 series!

    Not for nothing, but I feel that ATI / AMD has really played their cards well this generation. When the 7970 was released it was the fastest video card money could buy and it was priced accordingly. They were first to market, and with improvements such as the GHZ Edition and now the 7950 with...

    Best $50 budget card HTPC & light gaming

    I would look around for a used 4850 / 4870. You can find them all day for <$50 and they can still hold their own, even in today's modern games.
