    1600X can do 540h/s at stock, make sure you're running 4 threads per CCX, or 2 normal threads + 1 low power thread per CCX.

    I'm getting 484h/s with config :

    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 1 },

    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 3 },

    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 5 },

    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 7 },

    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 9 },

    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 11 },

    But after one or 2 hours , I get 500h/s

    I'm getting 545 with a gtx980 strix, minergate with no tweaks whatsoever (also watching youtube at the time). My clamp on shows approx 250w total system usage at the panel. I might quit Eth for this.

    What's a 1700X pull? That's pretty impressive out of the 1600X.

    You're only running 3 threads per CCX when you could be running 4. The rule of thumb for maximizing efficiency with XMR CPU mining is to run one thread for each 2MB of L3 cache. Ryzen has 2 x 8MB L3 cache, so the best strategy is to run 4 threads per CCX. Running 2 threads on 2 logical cores that belong to the same physical core has good enough efficiency to be worth it, so you could run threads on core 1,3,4,5 for the first CCX and 7,9,10,11 for the second.

    With 4 physical cores per CCX instead of 3 your win a bit in hashrate, probably between 10-20% depending on whether it runs stock or overclocked, so we're probably looking at something between 580-640h/s.

    FYI the Monero community considers Minergate is a scam.

    What kind of system power delta are you looking at between idle and full load after 2 hours?

    I will test for 24 hours.

    Thanks. I might point my 1800x at XMR mining if the results are good enough.

    at AMI Bios : 165w
    at idle mode in Win10 : 135w~144w
    at working with setting 1 2 4 5 7 8 10 11 : 190w~212w
    Hashrate : 510h/s , Hasharet after 30 minute : 548h/s

    Here settings for config.txt xmr-stak-cpu :
    { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 1 },{ "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 2 },{ "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 4 },{"low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 5 },{ "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 7 }, { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 8 },{ "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 10 }, { "low_power_mode" : false, "no_prefetch" : true, "affine_to_cpu" : 11 },

    With XFX 290 double Dissipation ( 980Mhz/1250Mhz ) = 694 h/s , 384w~412w
    With XFX RX480 GTR ( 1338Mhz/2000Mhz Bios mode strap 1750) = 781h/s , 528w~539w
    AMD Driver Blockchain.

    Okay so you're looking at an average delta of ~61.5W, not too bad. What's the efficiency on that PSU in the 200W range?

    Interesting efficiency curve in the 80+ report. But I digress. Looks like you're in the 92% range at that load level. Not bad at all.

    Below are my mining stats

    2 x XEON E5 2696V4 - 2100 h/s
    XEON E5 2696V3 - 750~800 h/s

    GTX 1080 ti - 900h/s
    GTX 1070 - 750 h/s
    GTX 1050ti - 350 h/s

    Dude, Monero ---> AMD.
    An R5 1600 beats the 1050ti, a 580 beats the 1070, AND the 1080ti if you do all the mods, and any vega should match all three COMBINED.
    For those cards, mine vertcoin or dash or something else. The CPUs will probably only be good for XMR though.
