I'm quite new in mining and I am using a R9 290 to mine monero with wolfs miner and Ubuntu 16. This is my xmr.conf file:

{
"Algorithms":
[
    {
        "name": "CryptoNight",
        "devices":
        [
            {
                "index": 0,
                "corefreq": 1000,
                "memfreq": 1300,
                "fanspeed": 65,
                "powertune": 20,
                "threads": 1,
                "rawintensity": 1040,
                "worksize": 16
            }
        ],
        "pools":
        [
            {
                "url": "stratum+tcp://pool.minexmr.com:443",
                "user": "43CvTMvvjn5A5ZvfKRyNt8gkaL6SxRamnWyhx6BGy9mnGRYjPu2m2difVRDA54mqBHGUi5qsjBGWb4zRJvDvn5F6AQJGw9k",
                "pass": "x"
            }
        ]
    }
]

}

With this config I'm getting about 670-680 H/s. What i think is acceptable for this card. If i change the rawintensity things go down or up. But what is the limit? should I put more rawintensity? or should i put it down to prevent overheating the GPU or something? Should any other parameter be changed to improve my configuration?

Please help I'm quite lost. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance ;)

With rawintensity, you're really looking for an optimum. So when changing it a little in either direction gives you less hashpower, you will know you found the right setting. I don't think it will affect heating much, especially if you're running the clocks at stock settings.

  • Ok thanks, it helps. Anything about the other parameters? – Hugo May 31 '17 at 17:47

    Not sure, maybe someone else can provide a better answer. Fyi, my AMD GPU ignored clock settings on Linux, and setting fanspeed high enough was important to control the temperature, although I had to run it as root to let it access the fan control. – JollyMort May 31 '17 at 18:52
