    People are really getting the Madmax plotter tuned now, getting sub 20 minute times with 5950x’s

    I'm still waiting for NVME to turn up so I can see how my old 3900x goes :lol:

    Express postage paid though now day 3 in transit

    Well the NVME rocked up, paired with a 3900X at stock that's 36 minutes per plot - damn

    So 40 a day with one system, not bad

    If you're using hpool you can plot normally and then use their client to farm right?

    Yes, you just can't have the regular Chia app open with those plot directories added - and synced / farming too - you'll get blacklisted

    So you'd use Chia via CMD, or a third-party plotter - and HPool to do the farming

    Stay on target.

    Have you been checking the debug log to ensure your plot lookup times are fast?

    Had a quick play with Madmax plotter and getting around 50mins in Windows with a 10700, 32gb ram and MP600. Haven’t bothered with any optimising yet. Will play with it tomorrow on Unbutu and dual Xeon. Having never used Unbutu before it has been a huge learning curve, I’m still not there but slowly picking it up.

    Many of the Discord channels are saying that pooling is imminent. With the combination of Madmax it’s gonna go mental :/

    A lot of people are giving up though as returns finish and the Chia prices keep dropping.

    I might have to check out madmax tomorrow! I haven't plotted in ages now.

    ^ This, I see a lot of YouTube videos recently quoting to check them, mine all seem to be perfect so I guess it's just a waiting game


    I'm still not keen on dropping tonnes of money into it, especially with the network size so huge - everything so far has been just on idle drives I had stashed at home, granted it's only about 50TB-ish worth. My Plex box needs upgrading so if I did splurge on some big drives I can move it to this after though

    575 for naught and almost finished filling up my storage.

    Hard drive prices are already far higher then when i bought them except the officeworks 4tb usb drives have dropped to $95 from $99

    Yeah I’m done dropping any more cash into it, Chia is speculative as it is, and the market in general is cooling off and with imminent pools etc it’s not really pointing in the right direction. I’ve just been using mining profits so not too fussed either way.

    I have enjoyed learning a bit more about Unbutu, servers, storage arrays and what not though.

    I learnt Ubunut back in 2014 i think it was when mining on 5850's before the big losing it all debarcle which stopped my crypto adventures :(

    99.99% of my block validation times are 0.2-0.8 seconds with most around the 0.3-0.4 seconds.

    i saw 1 or 2 outliers around 8seconds but i think that was whilst the drives were getting new plots written to them.

    So tonight I was able to conjure up a 128GB Kit of RAM out of the work stash to drop into one of the plotting rigs I'm using here - and holy bananas did it speed it up

    Intel E5-1650v2 6c/12t
    Supermicro X9SRi-F
    128GB DDR3 ECC Reg (120GB delegated to temp2)
    4* 600G SAS 15K Raid0 (via LSI Controller) (temp1)
    4TB Final Dump

    This thing using the SAS disks as a temp solely, the system could only push out around 6 plots a day (I'm using two systems, so "12") - it spends nearly all its time on Disk Wait (smashed @ 100%)

    With MadMax indeed using temp2 to handle 75% of writes (ie, primarily the whole first pass) - it's theoretically pushed the system up to 18 plots per day which is quite the bump for it

    Majority software either forces a size limit, or wants you to buy it (lmao) - I've used that one across Plex box for RAMdisk transcoding and no issues, it's unlimited and super easy

    I have gotten down to 2613 seconds just using 8 threads. So am going to try a 24hour sprint with a 4 powershell sessions going using 8 threads each. There will be some crossover on my big 2TB SSD as well as my 1TB AIC.

    Edit: 10 hours after starting, on track to write 5.1TB of plots! I have a 5950x with 64GB ram. Only appearing to max out the ram to about 22GB so far; most times hovering around 19GB.
