    Hi, any chance to add support for RX Vega (56\64) gpus?

    • miniZ says:

      Hi GeodE,
      Thanks for your message.
      These are old GPUs, at the moment it would not be easy for us.
      We’ll think about it.

    Having an issue where my reference AMD 6700xt is shown with 0% fan in the miner screen. This is within HiveOS. However – the dash does show the fan at 60%. I can also say the fans are spinning on the card. This appears to be a graphical glitch within the miner software. Miniz v1.9z HiveOS 0.6-219@220906

      Hi David Szczesny,
      Thanks for letting us know.
      Could you paste here the output of ./miniZ -ci?
      We’ll have a look at this.

      • David Szczesny says:

        Any idea how to do that in Hive?

    Hello, I think there is a issue with the clock reset on exit. I find that if I update my flight sheet in Hive, it restarts the miner without overclocks applied. This could cause problems with power draw on undervolted rigs with PSUs that cant support the full load.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Dizzle,
      Thank you for your message. We see now the issue.
      miniZ only resets the absolute clocks. On exit, it restores absolute default clocks.
      If you modify the clocks as offset with HiveOS, there should be no problem with miniZ.
      We’ll see what we can do to resolve this.

      • Dizzle says:

        Thanks for looking into this. I use absolute clocks in Hive for efficiency and get better results than using offsets. If possible to add a command line argument to disable clock reset would be great. I’m just worried about the miner crashing/restarting, resetting clocks and frying my rigs.Also, your 2080 ti overclock settings are perfect! Thanks for that, hope to see some overclock settings for 2060 and 3060 cards!

        • miniZ says:

          Hi Dizzle,
          Could you try the new version v1.9z2?
          We removed the ‘automatic’ reset, on exit. Except for the cases when they are changed on the command line.
          We may look into this in the future and make a few changes or options.

    There is an issue where bat files that worked with last version do not work with 1.9z

  5. Robert P Ringstad says:

    Linux binary works fine, but Windows binary does not even error, it just fails to execute at all. Not even –help will work on Windows. I have tested multiple PC’s with different driver versions and GPUs, same result.

    • miniZ says:

      Hi Robert P Ringstad,
      We’ve just managed to reproduce this behavior with the v1.9z (Windows).
      We’ll work to fix this asap.

    Hello I tried conflux it is working but no hashrate.

  7. Robert says:

    Hello the –fanspeed does not work it says the driver does not support it. I have tried driver 512.15 and 472.12

  8. LeBeDa says:

    I have problem to mine i my one node. Trying with HiveOS to configure in miner stratum+tcp//nodeIP:port// give me error

    • miniZ says:

      Hi LeBeDa,
      Thank you for your message.
      miniZ is suitable for pool mining.
      Could you let us know which algorithm are you trying to mine?
      We’ll have a look.
