@BigBear yeah everythign @HiDevin said i believe to be good info... i have had plots cut by power and windows updates.. takes a little configuring but they can be restarted where they leave off. 1tb plots are not an issue either.. it is reccomended to make them as big as you feel comfortable with. i use multiple 8tb drives.. one has 12 plot files the rest have either 2 or 1 .. i dont notice any real difference in read speeds. .. make sure to format your new drives into NTFS and use the biggest allocation of 64k ( you will see it in the format screen)
good luck and we were all new once ..keep the questions coming!
My post above I assumed the 8 core machine had 16 threads, thus more cores was better. Most CPUs pump out 800-1200 nonces/min/thread.
Depends on what "most cpu's are". My 3770k email@example.comGHz does 10-12knonces/min But thats with 7 threads enabled in the plotting option. I can go 8 but I would not be able to do anything on the pc ans it would lag.
If OP has the money to blow, get the Ryzen 1800X, board and memory and overclock that 1800x to the max, I bet you get 44k n/m or less
When will this end..........when we have a second layer of wallet security. 4pin code such as the ones in a MPOS mining pool. Doesn't the android wallet have that.
Lets take the time to update everyone wallet to the latest with additional security features.
@ZapbuzZ I tried to help, i just don't know how to help him because i never had a good GPU to try it, I plot with CPU only until I get a GPU better than what my 4 years hold laptop can offer me...
Maybe @haitch or @luxe can help him...
