Monero client sync

Speed up the initial blockchain sync with these steps:

# WINDOWS: Create a new folder with Windows File Explorer, and use your web browser to download the following two files to the new folder
https://downloads.getmonero.org/win64
https://downloads.getmonero.org/blockchain.raw

# WINDOWS: Double click the Monero zip file that has been downloaded to extract it. Then open Command Prompt. Use the 'cd' command to naviate to your new folder
cd monero
monero-blockchain-import.exe --verify 0 --input-file ./blockchain.raw

# WINDOWS: Delete the raw blockchain download as it is no longer needed
del blockchain.raw

BIOS Tuning

<in progress>

 

Miner settings

Since the Equihash (Zcash) algorithm usually prefers a higher core timing than does the Ethash algorithm that is used for Ethereum mining, I also ran a second test run with the core clock set a bit higher to 1300 MHz. I then needed to increase the core voltage to 1050mv too, so it does come as a trade-of between hash/sec versus power consumption. On the plus side, Zcash is not as memory bandwidth dependent as Ethereum, you can lower the memory clocks a bit, or to default in this case, to save a bit of power.
