If you are still using an NVidia 1080 Ti card, and are trying to compete with the 2080s and 3090s these days, you need to up your hash game. There has been a tool around for the past 2 years to help with this. It is specifically designed for teh 1080 Ti cards, and has increased my hashes in the area of 50% per card. I wanted to preserve the software on github, so I created my own fork of it. The fork will not be updated, or worked on by me. It is just there so we all have a place to draw from in the long run.

For my setup, I am running Ubuntu 20.04.01, headless, and an Nvidia 1080ti. My miner is T-Rex with the setup from this guide:

Back to the guide

On your miner, open a terminal
sudo bash
cd /tacticalware
git clone
mv ETHlargementPill/ ohgod
cd ohgod
chmod +x OhGodAnETHlargementPill-r2
screen ./OhGodAnETHlargementPill-r2

You will see the following message:

Your system is now capable of running at 50% greater speed.

Since you used screen you can close this connection and it will still run.
To reconnect to this screen you can resume it by opening a terminal again
Typing sudo bash
Then screen -r

All that is left is to start up your mining software, configure it to mine ETH or ETC and start mining.

Enjoy the extra hashes!

This one is quick and easy guide on how to Disable the GUI, for those of you who are like me, and do not want the extra processing cycles wasted on a gui…Here you go.

Log into your system

Open a terminal

sudo bash

systemctl set-default multi-user

Reboot your computer

Voila…headless mining rig

Installing Teamviewer on Ubuntu Server

How-To guide for installing and running Teamviewer on your Ubuntu Mining Rig

This is the quick and dirty to get it up and running.  I find that running Teamviewer on my Ubuntu Mining Rigs helps me manage them on the fly.  For this guide you will replace the home directory named tacticalware with the name of your home directory.  The rest of the commands will work as they are listed.

From a command prompt run the following commands:

sudo bash

mkdir /home/tacticalware/teamviewer

cd /home/tacticalware/teamviewer


dpkg -i teamviewer-host_amd64.deb

The installation will fail

Now run:

apt-get -f install


After it installs then run

teamviewer setup

Enter your username

Enter your password

Log into your email, and find the Teamviewer email

Allow/Add the device

And now you can log into your server using Teamviewer


Mining with the Z270X Ultra-Gaming Motherboard

How-To Enable all 6 GPUs with the Z270X Ultra-Gaming Motherboard

I use a fair amount of the Gigabyte Z270X motherboards in my rigs, and have run into an issue where only 5 of the 6 GPUs will be seen by Microsoft Windows 10.  To get the 6th one to display there are a few steps, that I can list below.  The good news is your system will see the GPUs…Windows just doesnt know how to allow the OS to access them all.

First thing….install the latest BIOS for the motherboard.  You can get this from the Gigabyte manufacturer site.

Next, configure the bios by performing the following:


Press DEL

Enter Setup

On the M.I.T Tab, navigate to Miscellaneous Settings and select it.

Then select Max Link Speed

Scroll down to Gen 2 and select that option

Next you want to Navigate to the BIOS tab

Scroll down to Windows 8/10 Features and select that option

Make sure Windows 8/10 is selected, not Other OS

Scroll down to CSM Support and select that option

Set it to Disabled

You can now Save and Exit your Bios, reboot your rig, and all of your video cards will be functional.  If you find that you cannot boot your Windows installation, it may be that you need to install the OS using UEFI support.  If that is the case and you do not want rebuild at this time, simply undo the changes above and you are back to where you began.
