I have been comparing pools again since pegapool went down. I’ve mostly been on F2pool. I just got done with viabtc, which was a good pool and had marginally lower rewards over the course of about 30 days. It did seem like I got higher rewards toward the beginning of my signup and then the last week they seemed to have fallen off for whatever reason (when comparing against F2Pool). ViaBTC did have less hardware errors by 40-50%, which I like to see.
Regardless, this brings us to the next test. I am testing F2pool vs luxor. @The_Jackson_4 recommended Luxor, so here we are trying another pool.
My initial views after a few days is that Luxor is giving slightly more rewards, but I’ll post up my findings after 3-4 weeks or so. The hardware errors are either on par or lower than viabtc. Could luxor be the “sweet spot”??? Luxor also supports their own firmware, I believe. We will see how this goes. I would like to get some new firmware on my machines at some point. I may also just go with the epyc boards too, not sure though.
The machines on the two left spots have been up for almost 9 weeks and have been on F2pool. The two on the right are the ones just switched to luxor. They have been up for 4 days now.
Up almost a week on luxor and left side is about 9 weeks on f2pool.
Preliminary data for rewards is showing luxor definitely beating out F2pool each day.

Luxor yielding about 2% more in payouts. I would call that a tie. Luxor was up almost 2.5 weeks and f2pool has been up for 10.5 weeks. Here are the hardware errors. The two on the left are F2pool and the two on the right are luxor.
I THINK I will be switching to luxor from f2Pool based on similar rewards and less hardware errors. I will post up when I make this decision.
Just switched over the other ones to luxor. I’ll post up in a week or so to confirm the error rates on all machines.
Preliminary data after one day. Looking good.
It feels good to have the miners back at one place.
A week in on solely luxor with the miners and they’re still showing roughly half the error rates as F2pool.
