I have seen this a couple times, since I have bought several different type of non-refferent RX 580 OC cards. Tomorrow I am expecting the shiittiest, but I still think it will make 30MH, MSI Armor. I have played with MSI Gaming X, Gaming X +, XFX RX580 GTS 8GB black edition(carbon-fiber design ones), and all give above 30.sth on the newer claymores now. The XFX is not with flashed BIOS< only switching to the 2nd BIOS they have installed from XFX factory. I am also waiting for a Nitro on Monday, which I am told from seller does above 30 to 31MH/s on ETH. So after playing with some RX580 cards myself, I think this review is a bit wrong. This is really cool comparison, and I like the video, I like discussing the package, the heatsink and fans, especially the memory type, but why set the CORE to 1375 and say there are memory errors. Not sure if the core would affect, but RX 580 Core sweet spot is about 1150 core on 2150 to 2175 memory (the core varies between 1130 to 1169). These setting allow for a nice undervolt, which actually may raise performance on ETH additionally, so testing ETH on core 1375 is not the best result shown in my opinion. New Claymore 11.6 sucked a few KH/s more nowadays, but still.
This is amazing!! I just gotten $ 1,200 USD from the Gigantic British Mineradora of Bitcoin WORLD MINIG she's paying from 27% to 30% a month ... British-based mining company See the Saving test I won in just 5 days !! It's a show, it's bombing = https://youtu.be/8Ry7onkXTPs
Guys, I just get my Strix RX480 3 fan replace by asus because of fan failure for an RX580. As the one shown on the video. I try many time without moded bios , with moded bios. It all the time hashrate is 0. The power jumps to 50W and do not increase from that point. It never start hashing ... My old 480 was easlity 29.5-30mhs but the new one ... don't even start. Did someone has the similar issue?
Fantastic vid mate,
What was the exact bios flash configs you used for this card, ASUS ROG Strix T8G Top OC, and would it work for the ASUS ROG Strix T8G OC version?
Any info would be appreciated :)
Beyond The Routine hey mate thanks for the reply, do you have any advice for The same GPU - Asus RX580 OC Strix with HYNIX memory as it doesn't seem go work I have 3 and they all seem to unstably cap out at 23.5 using the same overclocks crashing the sytem. at stock they get 20.5 :( how can I fix this to get 29.3 like my other samsung memory GPUs. also the Hynix has an additional timing 0:2250 do I copy over the value to this field also?
Yes they can all work together without issues. If you flash the bios correctly (4GB and 8GB have different bios mods) then you should get 29+ MH/s from both 4GB and 8GB cards. Just remember to get the voltage/clock settings in whichever software you use (Afterburner, Wattman, etc.) individually.
I found 5pcs of these.GIGABYTE RX580 Gaming 8G DDR5. I want to buy this before they are gone. Also 3pcs GIGABYTE RX580 Aorus XTR 8G available to buy it now. Any opinion about these models based on performance, overclocking , undervolting hash rate to expect? Which one should I buy now?
Beyond The Routine sure but I rather pay 70% more and get 2x performance. I got what looks to be one of the last 480 today. 3 cards in my rig now. But it will be kind of a patch work later with 470, 480, next 3 cards will be 570 or 580. Depends on what your guide comes up with 😁
Thanks for being original and awesome
simple, copy the timing from the 1500 to the 1625/1750/2000 in the first set of timings. Save the modded rom file with a different name, then flash the modded bios to the card. And then give the following settings a try: undervolt by -96mV, set core clock to 1150 MHz and vRAM clock to 2050 MHz. You should then get about 30 MH/s.
it's Nitro+ and I am looking for bios settings that would take me from 24 up, in particular. But if you have any how to: bios settings tips or could make a video, that would be great! I know the process, that I need to back up my original settings and loading .roms but I don't really understand how to change the parameters to make the card most effective.
Hi man. I have 2 rigs. One with 5 x RX570 AORUS 4 GB. And another with 1 x 570 AORUS 4 GB and 1 x RX 480 MSI Gaming X. All have the bios mod. On the second rig with the 2 GPU (570 + 480) I can't install the drivers. On the first I have Win 10, on the second Windows 7.
So... how I can install and work with that 2 gpu on Windows 7 64 bits? Thanks.
The OS shouldn't have anything to do with your issues. We have rigs here running in Win7 as well as Win10. Try using DDU to remove your driver completely and install the driver again if you haven't tried that.
Thank you for being such a loyal audience, we hope your patience will be rewarded. Since this is a competition between 6 of the top model RX 580 GPUs, we are merely saying the results from the ASUS card was less promising. From our experience, ASUS makes great gaming GPUs but not always the best mining GPUs.
one time that happened to me and it turns out I forgot to plug the power to the video card lol. That is strange, the only think I can think of is that your CPU probably has built-in graphics, like many Intel CPUs do now days, and somehow in your bios it is set to be the primary, so try to plug your monitor into the video I/O on the motherboard and see if you get any video signal. If that's the case, then just change the bios setting to auto detect on the graphics source or set it to PCIe.
What's confusing is that i recently bought this new RX 580 gaming x+ from MSI. And my PC turns on, the only thing that doesn't was my monitor. I have:
16 GB DDR 3
CX 500 PSU
G1 Gaming sniper B6 Mother Board
And of course the VGA itself, so why doesn't my monitor turn on..?
Decided ASUS PRIME Z270-A, 7 PCI (need downgrade the PCIs speeds to accept 7 cards) I think I saw one of your videos you saying about one card did not work in the Rig, did you tried downgrade the PCIs speed on Bios?
I mean graphic board.. mother board I'm planing to buy AsRock H81 Pro BTC Motherboard, but I will certainly consider your suggestion, this is a good idea to do videos ... same graphic board different mother boards, put on the list :)
Awesome video! Asus disappointed me a little bit, as I was expacting ~31MH/s. Also it would be super cool if you create sheet (eg. google docs) with all the results, pros and cons at the end of series. I hope to see more video, keep it up!
Good afternoon excellent video I follow him for a long time and recently acquired some 6 xfx 580 could tell us which are the optimal values to reach that mine and how much power the graphic consumes. thank you very much.
Let us know which software you would like to use to make the adjustments and we will either make a video on it or point you to the videos or guides available. The general goal is, regardless which tool you use, you want to achieve the highest stable hashrate where the core clock is the lowest and the vRAM clock is the highest. We usually start the core clock at 1050 MHz and go up from there until it's at the point where you are no longer gaining any hashrate. For the vRAM, we start at 2000 MHz and go up until the GPU becomes unstable and then set it to just under that. We also try to undervolt the core as much as possible. The combination of lower core voltage and core clock will reduce the power consumption and temperature, while increasing the vRAM clock will do the opposite.
have you been able to get them to mine at the 31 MH/s hashrate stable? Generally, the hierarchy of XFX RX 500 series goes like this: RS<GTS<GTR<GTR-S. However, these are ratings for how well they game, not how well they mine. Manufacturers do put better components into building higher end GPUs, like bigger heatsink or higher bin chips, however, because Ethereum mining is heavy on the vRAM and not so much on the GPU core, it mainly comes down to how overclock friendly the RAM in the video card is.
I recommend doing the most you can with them, try different core and vRAM settings, and find that sweet spot for your batch of GPUs. If you need help, message us :)
Thanks for your feedback, we will work on boosting our volume. The 30.3 hashrate is for the MSI RX 580 Gaming X+ we tested in Part 1 of 7. The setting to get to that is as followed: Core clock to 1200 MHz, vRAM clock to 2200 MHz, and we down-volted the core by -96mV to 1.031V. And yes, we did mod the bios by copying the 1750 timing to the 2000 timing. Hope that helps.
Hi Bro your videos are very helpful. I need your help I want to built an ethereum mining rig please help me which cards I should chose, where from I should buy with lowest cost (good performance) including all hardware. I need a complete video tutorial how to fix it and which software works for ethereum, Zcash, Pacal etc. mining. I want to start mining help me out bro & It'll helpful for others too. Oblige please.
I think what you are asking for already exist on the net. Almost all of our rigs are different because we shop for the cheapest parts which meets the minimum requirement of running a 6+GPU mining rig. We can make a video tutorial outlining the bare minimum you need to build a rig if that would help?
In regards to bios modding and flashing, there are so many great videos on YouTube already, we won't want to over-crowd that space. We like using Claymore as the mining software, but people have great success with others like Simple Mining, ethOS, etc.
you think this worth "pre ordering" :( only freaking rx580 i can find man, and idk how good hash rate is on it, cant find no videos on these powercolor 580s :( (no eth mining videos with them) :(
So I thought I was finally going to be able to build my first rig I started ordering and apparently I cannot find any Red Dragon RX570S. Complete downer. But enough about that I'm staying optimistic let's see what this beautiful card can do!
