What's the secret to find lowest dead line???
have optimized plot???
or there are other settings to fix, to find lowest dead line???
For sure, is not the disk read speed who give you lowest dead line...
So, what can help us, find lowest deadline?
@ItalianMiner72 More & More TB is the key :-)
plottin right now...
going fot 28tb...
hope to increase in a few days..
were to buy cheapest hdd in EU???
@ItalianMiner72 In order to find the lowest DL you can only do 2 things: increase your mining power or increase your luck LOL
Optimizing plots only give you better reading speeds because instead of you read every "nonce" you will read every "scope" (groups of nonces or to be mathematically precise scope = nonces / stagger (RAM used to plot))
You can think of mining as a lottery (that always pays to only one ticket), and every nonce is a ticket to that lottery, with the DL being the ticket number. So, if you get more tickets, you have a better chance to win the lottery...
Hope this heps you understand how mining works... ;D

https://geizhals.eu/?cat=hdx&xf=5588_HDD~339_3.5"~840_USB+3.0 (wait for special offers)
@luxe great tips!!
ther eis a special section to check for special offers????
or maybe there are some special icons???
@ItalianMiner72 no sometimes there are offers below 25€/TB on e.g. 4TB or 5TB drives ... i'm for example waiting for 8TB PMR drives at ~220€ ... that seagate 8TB listed there is surely SMR Archive drive inside ... the last i got was WD MY BOOK @ 220€ 2-3 Weeks ago. https://www.servethehome.com/wd-book-8tb-5400rpm-wd80ezzx-benchmarks/
only way to find more deadlines is to add more TB's witch will up the % chance one of them will be a lower winning deadline. the thing you do have control over via tweeking stuff is how fast you submit your deadlines, just because you found a 20 sec deadline does not mean you will win if it took you 2 min to find it. optimising plots fixing choke points as you hit them via switching from CPU to GPU mining using SATA 6g connection internal and adding more USB 3.0 so as not to have to many drives connected on one port. using powered USB 3.0 hub's ... and in my case geting a bigger power supply lol 400w is a bit low to run everything in my setup including 2 gpu's and 7 HDD's + normal PC usage.

Wasn't one of the positives of Burst or POC mining in general supposedly the low power consumption for mining, what has happened ????
@rds it is but i run nicehash on my comp as well just because i have the equipment to do it... just burst mining yea my 400w PSU can handle it + me using the comp for daily use even playing video games.
@luxe many thanx for the reply luxe!!!
but after you get USB HDD, are you using that like USB HDD, or do you open it, extract hdd, and you use it like SATA???
like in STH review???
@ItalianMiner72 depends ... i use some USB3 and some (warn: lose warranty) i extract and use as internal sata.
@luxe i'm thinking, to use a USB3 disk, you need a USB 3 HUB...
but with 4 or 6 or 8 hdd in the same usb hub, who mean in the same usb port... how are you able to compleate reading under 120secs????
it isn't too slow?
@ItalianMiner72 It is not about the hub ... it is about the usb3 controller ... do not attach more than ~6 drives to one controller ... you can use extension card with dedicated controller per slot ... so one of this, combined with 4 hubs should enable you to attach ~24 drives ... and still be fast enough to stay much lower than 120sec ... maybe around 30sec (depends on your system).
@luxe THIS IS GEAT TIP!!!
goin to amazon to check price!!!
@ItalianMiner72 should mention that on pc can handle a lot of controller but not unlimited ... but 1-2 extension cards should be no problem.
