Hi, I have been interested in crypto for a while now, and finally got in on with the doge frenzy in March, and am now mining VerusCoin. All of my mining has been with phones, a bit weird I know, but it has done the job. Well I have at this point been mining Verus for about 1.5-2 weeks, and all of a sudden, my temps are up 5°C and my hash power is down over 50%. Before my hash rate was about 4.6-5.2Mh with about 54-56°C, now it’s 1.8Mh with a temp of 58-60°C, plus it gets there a lot faster. When I mine single core (just for testing), I usually get about 750Kh, well now I’m getting 1.2Mh, with similar temps to before maybe plus minus a degree. I have shutdown and let it rest off for hours, restarted it multiple times and it doesn’t change it. It also doesn’t display any warnings, the only thing that’s wrong is it all of a sudden has worse performance and is running uncomfortably hot for me at full load. I did give it a occasional break for about an hour a day when it was in service.
Have I fried one or more of my cores or has the OS maybe done something fishy or something else entirely? Bad RAM or poor allocation maybe?
Here’s some info about my setup,
Samsung Galaxy S10 (Android 11) as my rig
This is what lscpu says it is:
CPU op-code(s): 32-bit, 64-bit
Byte Order: Little Ending
On-line CPU(s) list: 0-7
Thread(s) per core: 1
Core(s) per socket: 2
Vender ID: Qualcomm
CPU max MHz: 2841.6001
CPU min MHz: 300.0000
(The rest is vulnerably warnings)
Flags: fp asimd evtstrm aes pull sha1 sha2 crc32 atomics fphp asimdhp could asimdrdm lrcpc dcpop asimddp
A 16x4 inch heat sink that I scraped out of a old audio receiver that quit working, as my cooler
It’s not plugged in all the time and the battery is allowed to cycle.
I use VerusMiner9000 on LuckPool NA
Let me know if more info is needed.
