Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 8GB Mining Driver

158 ratings | 32098 views
Was able to get out of the 28Mh/s range and back into the 30+ range. It wasn't as easy as install and go as the new drivers take a bit different speeds. I had to drop my GPU core clock to stock (1200) and I could still max out the memory as long as stable. This new driver also allows for lower power consumption. I'm just shy of 200 W less overall on my 8 x GPU rig. 1stminingrig tutorial for upgrading driver with all needed links http://1stminingrig.com/ethereum-dag-hashrate-drop-fix-amd-official-mining-drivers-are-now-out/ Memory Strap Mod I'm using in this video (Hynix 8GB Only) 777000000000000022AA1C00B56A6D46C0551017BE8E060C006AE6000C081420EA8900AB030000001B162C31C0313F17 RX series timings txt file - thx to Mattthev. https://mega.nz/#!h7pn0aCL!GjwuT54g-bKFFXIXfyadvZjA0cp6-zBPdCKfx0d8uQY Bios File https://mega.nz/#!I2Yk2C5R!Oo21NYz2e1upnS_8kBKDoCO-eHHuXaFetL3i3XwnYf8 Thank you!

This work for Shappire Rx580 8GB special edition ? Micron cheap !
Corporateair (6 months ago)
What 8pin 6pin power cables are you using? you have link for that? Thank you
miningmadeasy (6 months ago)
I'm just using one 8 pin from the PSU. It gives it all the power needed for mining. These only pull about 150W a piece.
GRATON (6 months ago)
I have 6 saphire nitro+ rx580 8gb with micron memory on my rig...when I conect any card, it hashes little over 30mh, but when I connect more then 3 cards, total hash rate drops on 26-27mh per card...do you know what seems to be a problem? Motherboard is biostar tb250 btc
miningmadeasy (6 months ago)
GRATON I had a similar issue with this when running Windows. I had to start over. Wipe all drivers with DDU and then install one card at a time and check hash each time before moving on. Also, make sure bios setting are optimized (gen 2). If still not working try swapping risers and cables
Billy Pi (7 months ago)
Does the bios mode works for nitro rx 570 too?
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
I believe another user tried it and it did. If you open up that RX timing txt file you should see some 570 timings. You can always just try it out. If it doesn't work better just copy back your old bios.
DSC Kishari (7 months ago)
hmmm the GPU has 6 pin connector whic is not connected. So why is there a six pin connector? :D
Ryan T (7 months ago)
cheers dude, im following, im trying to snag cards as they come available for a decent price, so far 2 1070ti and 2 rx 580 on their way, giving myself an excuse to buy more amd and nvidia cards so that i have 2 complete rigs by summer lol :D
Ryan T (7 months ago)
ya im dealing with canadian prices, $700 for 1070ti's and $550 for rx 580's
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
Ryan T I have not been able to get a decent price in over a month. Glad to hear they are still out there. Good luck!
xcontentDOTnet (7 months ago)
I did download the BIOS and did install it on two cards. Both getting only 26MH/s and consuming around 95watts each. :-(
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
xcontentDOTnet 1% to get 2 more mh/s is worth it
xcontentDOTnet (7 months ago)
Ok. I thought ethminer is better. I can get 29MH/s from it without fee and maybe 31MH/s from claymore with 1% fee.
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
xcontentDOTnet I've only used Claymore not familiar with youth Miner give it a shot super easy to set up
xcontentDOTnet (7 months ago)
What miner do you use? Is it possible that the difference is coming from using ethminer vs. claymore?
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
I have found Windows to be the most efficient for the RX580s
Pascal De Ladurantaye (7 months ago)
With 729 watt for 4 card, can you use a 750watt PSU? Do you suggest to use a maximum 80% of the maximum output?
Pascal De Ladurantaye (7 months ago)
miningmadeasy thanks for your reply!
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
Pascal De Ladurantaye for long term I would stick to the 80% rule. But 750W PSUs are cheap enough it might not matter if it fails a year or two quicker. If you watch my other video of this rig today I'm running 750W PSUs
Ahmed Mohmed (7 months ago)
Need your help I will bulid my first rig I have 3 nitro Rx 580 8 gb. So how I connect them to the power supply using the 6 pin or 8 pin or both and how mush power the 3 need I have 850 watt power supply
Ahmed Mohmed (7 months ago)
thanks for you replay so i have one more question so can you help me if one card do 30 mh with free electricity so how much can i earn per month
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
Ahmed Mohmed you only need the 4 pin connector connected. 850 watts should be enough to run 4 RX 580s
1st Mining Rig (7 months ago)
Nice video :) btw the power consumption is still the same? Let me know if need help to reduce it more! thanks! :) Ciprian (real name, male, haha)
1st Mining Rig (7 months ago)
Switch to DCR then :) if you haven't tried it yet use -cvddc 850 -mvddc 900 in your .bat file, let me know if you get better power consumption.
miningmadeasy (7 months ago)
LOL! Yeah I was really new to your site back then. Thx! for all the help. When dual mining still have the same consumption. Here is the updated video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gJ1_YLfCoM . I just stopped mining SC due to the recent ASIC caused difficulty hike. I am getting about 575-580W on each PSU now that brings me to a total of just under 1200W
Elvis Ourfali (8 months ago)
One question sir!. Sapphire Nitro+ has 2 power connector. a 6pin and an 8pin ... which one do you connect to use them? I know for usage in a gaming pc you'll ned both but how is it with a mining rig?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
You only need to connect the 8 pin power if you are running this less than 100% power. Anything more I would connect both.
Kerim Emurla (8 months ago)
Hello, miningmadeasy, great videos and I've learned a lot from you. I have a quick questions, I'm running 6 RX 580 Nitro+ and getting around 180 mh/s, but the other day my Windows complete broke and the rig shut down. Do you have any clue, which can help me what is causing an issue like that? I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks and keep up the good work!
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
Does your machine keep rebooting? Or does it no longer come on at all? If completely dead I would start with your PSU, then mobo. If rebooting try unplugging all your cards and see if the problem persists. If not, then it is a riser or bad riser cable.

Working un Samsung? No Hynix?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
The GPUs you see in the video are using the Hynix mem strap. I have tried Samsung and other mem straps but I get errors. This strap has worked the best for these Nitro+ cards.
Philip Wicker (8 months ago)
This is a very similar build that I am in the process of putting together. I noticed that you've only used the 8 pin power connector for your Sapphire GPUs . I've read lots of different opinions on weather to use only the 8, or the 8 and the 6 pin combined to power the card. Any thoughts on weather to use 1 or both? One concern I read was that if you're overclocking and only using 1 power connector, then you could run into issues without having the second.
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
If you are pushing these more power than stock, yes I would suggest using both connection. I'm undervolting these to where each card is only pulling around 75W. One power connection is totally fine. If you get above 150W pull then I'd suggest using both connections. It has been running since July just fine with one connection.

Gabriel Giampietri (8 months ago)
Samsung?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
Hynix and Samsung. In Polaris bios editor both types show depending on what part of the memory you have selected. I am using a hynix mem strap as GPU-z shows Hynix as the memory type.
Volkan Toksöz (8 months ago)
I really like your system at the same time it looks beautiful visually. I have a few questions. Did you recommend a this motherboard and did you ever get a problem? Some users say they are having a lockup problem. I am thinking of using 2 pieces of 850 watts fsp G850 as power source for 7 cards. Will that be enough? (Sapphire rx580).Finally, what are you using ram and cpu? Thanks for the video and sorry my english :))
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
Yes. The Asus Z270-A is one of my favorite boards. It also runs 12 x GPUs very well. 2 850 PSUs should be enough for 7 cards. I will be posting a new video on this rig as I have since moved this into my mining room. If you have yet to subscribe and hit the bell. I'll be posting it here in the next few days.
Zihelmet (8 months ago)
i got 15 mh/s straight from the box and 21 after bios 23 after oc , can someone tell me why?
Lucas Antollin (8 months ago)
Did you common ground the two power supplies?, I mean the negative dc voltage
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
Lucas Antollin no
Andre Blanc (8 months ago)
Nice mining rig there! Would you mind sharing how did you manage to get 8 GPUs running on your Prime Z270-A motherboard?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
Andre Blanc I'll post a video on it. I'm building a 12x 1070ti rig with it right now
Andre Blanc (8 months ago)
12 GPUs? This sounds fantastic! Do you have more detail / extra resources on how to proceed? Are the GPUs RX 580 as well ?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
Andre Blanc using an m.2 to pci-e adapter. I have another z270a running 12 GPUs. It has 2 m.2 pci-e adapters and a pci-e splitter
cycobee (9 months ago)
seriously thinking about buying 4x of the same brand/model 580 8gb cards in your video. is that as good as it gets? like 729 watts for about 120 MH is some serious power draw (current get 220 MH for same power on nvidia). was hoping that could get around no more than 500 watts for 4 card or am I dreaming? is it possible to mod these to be anymore power efficient . i dont mind going to 28mh per card, only if could mod them down to way lower power? price of these card make more sense over nvidia (cannot keep buying nvidia, price to high), but price per kw is super high where i am. let me (anyone) know if super low power can be done?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
you can buy a power meter for like $25 on Amazon and do the calculations or you can use GPUz to look at the Wattage draw per card.
Amazing Funny Videos (8 months ago)
miningmadeasy hi, can you show me how to check to Watts the GPUs and the system used?
miningmadeasy (8 months ago)
cycobee AMD just draw more power. They do this through the riser. 150W GPU+riser has been the lowest I've been able to manage. I was able to get this rig of 8 cards down to 1100W total since this video was posted.
Masz Tos (9 months ago)
Thank you for the video i went up from 22,5 to 31,9 ! and my power consumption dropped from 998w to 887! thank you again. Good job
Bec Kalaj (9 months ago)
Nice video man, i have 3 rigs with 6 RX570 8Gigs each, i only get 146Mhs per RIG, i don’t know why. Once i got 180 MHs and can’t find that mV again to play with clock’s a bit. Anny sug.. will help here. Thank you
Billy Pi (7 months ago)
With only changeing the memory straps on 570+ you can get up to 30.8-31 Mh/s With +10 Frequency +2200 Mhz Max (SAMSUNG ONLY) Consider When the Dual Minrr will start you will press "-" untill you set second mining from 30 to 1 WITH OR WITHOUT USEING IT SE IT TO 1. it gives you +0.500/0.800 Mh/s more
miningmadeasy (9 months ago)
You just need to download Polaris Bios Editor, you can find the download link at 1stminingrig.com in the description. Once in there replace the mem stratp timing with the ones that match your card from the txt file I provided and drop the max voltage for mem and core to 950. Download ATI WinFlash (same 1stminingrig link) to flash your bios (make a backup first).
Bec Kalaj (9 months ago)
miningmadeasy i used 1750 to 2000 I’m using 4.4.0 beta 16. I dont know how to overclock RX cards, just by using some tuts found in youtube.. if you can please make a video on RX570 4GB elpida and 8GB hynix cards. Thank you so much :)
miningmadeasy (9 months ago)
Bec Kalaj what memory strap are you using in you bios mod? Are you on the Aug 23 mining driver? Using MSI Afternoon 4.4.0 beta 19?
Al Watts (9 months ago)
Do you think the memory strap in your comments should work for a Sapphire Nitro+ 570 8GB (Hynix memory) card as well? Thanks.
miningmadeasy (9 months ago)
Give it a shot. Worst case scenario is that is will blue screen. Most of the time the miner will just crash. I just added to the description a download link for some timings that are really good to pull from when trying to find a good mem strap. I think the mem strap I'm using was actually from an old 470 or 480 thread.
crizzan izzan (9 months ago)
Sir can you guid me how to undervolt rx570 4gb red devil hynix memory Or i can use this. Please help me. Thanks
miningmadeasy (9 months ago)
crizzan izzan I'd just use MSI afterburner. Must use the latest beta to unlock voltage control though
Peter (9 months ago)
2 Nitro RX 580 4Gb. Together mining at 59.6 Mh/S and power from the wall is 307 W ;) Happy mining )
Liam Sevier (10 months ago)
How did you unlock the core voltage control in Afterburner? Can you share what you selected in the AB settings config, and/or provide a few screenshots? Thanks.
miningmadeasy (10 months ago)
I would uninstall it completely and make sure you install the RivaTuner version that came with the 440beta version of AB. I have never had any issues.
Liam Sevier (10 months ago)
Yes. https://s7.postimg.org/8lzfo0mjv/2017-11-15_16-27-50.jpg
miningmadeasy (10 months ago)
Liam Sevier you do have to enable voltage control in the afterburner setting first. Did you do that?
Liam Sevier (10 months ago)
I've been on that version since it was released. I've seen this as an intermittent problem. For the longest time, I was never able to unlock the slider. Then, out of nowhere, it was unlocked. At some point between now and then, it has locked itself again (despite being on the same version). So that's why I was interested in seeing any screenshots and/or config details.
miningmadeasy (10 months ago)
Liam Sevier you have to download the 4.4.0 beta 16 version.
Wajdi Echi (10 months ago)
how much power consume 6 sapphire rx 580 4gb rig? and what do u think about power consumption of 6 msi rx 580 4gb rigs?
miningmadeasy (9 months ago)
Wajdi Echi I have been able to achieve about 83W on an RX 580 (150W total with riser). Not dual mining like I was as SC is worthless now a days. I am able to get away with -100mv from 950mv bios mod.
miningmadeasy (10 months ago)
I"m at 1500W with 8. You would probably be around 1000-1100 W. But that is only if you are dual mining.
Gold Brick (10 months ago)
Do you thing when I switch the pool the hashing numbers may improve?

Thiwanke Rajapakse (11 months ago)
Did you under-volt the gpu by modding bios.??I'm looking for solution to run all my gpus under lower voltage on simple mining os??any suggestions???
miningmadeasy (10 months ago)
Yes. If you pause on my bios you can see that I undervolted to 950. I then took it down about another 50mV using afterburner. I'd start at 950 and see how low you can go with your specific gpu.
Riccardos Santos (11 months ago)
hi, nice video and good looking numbers. how did you get the 8 GPUs running on Windows 10?
miningmadeasy (10 months ago)
Use DDU and remove all drivers and then plug one in at a time. Make sure you wait 10 minutes or so between each one to make sure it fully installed. Windows can support up to 8 x AMD and 8 x NVIDA. So at most 16 GPUs but only 8 of the same architecture.
Gold Brick (10 months ago)
I will try this myself. this weekend
miningmadeasy (11 months ago)
Riccardos Santos Fresh install of windows 10 and plugged one GPU in at a time. I have a mix of 8 GTX 1070 and 1060 cards working in win 10 as well
mmohaki (1 year ago)
Is this bios file you gave gonna work with Gigabyte RX 580 8GB ? Wanna order 580 cards but still dont know which cards have same memory type, as i know your cards have samsung and gigabyte hynix..
miningmadeasy (1 year ago)
My cards are Hynix memory. My bios is only for Hynix 8GB RX 580. You can usually search what memory type your card will have but sometimes it will be different even with the same brand.
umar farooq (1 year ago)
plz sir give me your bios mod thank u very much
