Installing your CPU miner A handy piece of software called cpuminer is the easiest way to start mining, but does require the ability to use the command line on your computer. At for bottom of afterburner GUI litecoins overclocking at system startup". If you still require assistance please feel free to drop by our Pool Chat or raise a Support Ticket. All Windows versions have C: Although, using 3 AMD R9 cards you're not going to have a separate platform per se. Please coins your config give for cgminer cgminer batch file or command line.
If your graphics card is detected, you should be good to go. This assumes you're mining Litecoin. Michael Guest - Guest Guerster. Minerd appears to start straight in scrypt mode which is handy given that is really all you would be using a CPU to mine if at all: How Do I Use Ethereum? To check which version of windows you have in terms of system architecture , right click computer and select properties.
Writing your script So, how to set up cpuminer with litecoins parameters needed for your mining pool?

Tue Apr 22, 2: Sat Mar 26, 3: Fri Aug 05, 4: Tue Nov 28, 8: Hoping to use solar panels.. Really think it would be a fun project with the kids! Using pooler's CPUminer 2. To give perspective, a quad-core i7 3. The only real way you can increase this is to use GPU scrypt miners, or maybe asics when they come along.
If you really want to get ltc using a pi, go to one of the faucets once a day. But I'm working on a rig currently trying to use the pi.
I will absolutely make a tutorial. The trick is using the gpu with the pi. It may not be feasible. If not I will make a tutorial on how to build a miner with ease and affordability.
I run my system at a lower setting if the same gpu is driving my monitor so the display stays responsive. Try this command if running with a monitor and see what happens. This came from the config for a from gui-miner scrypt. It might work with your card. Copy and paste it. You would have to customize your gpu-platform and device number.
The -T option allows the output to be one long series of text lines, which can be useful for debugging. If you want a screen where the status updates repaint in the same space, take off the -T. Executing cgminer --ndevs or cgminer -n will show the devices, and device numbers, on your system. If the gpu is NOT driving your monitor, you could try this command and see what happens.
The is not capable of huge hash numbers, but should do better than 16 KH. If you still have trouble, upgrade to the latest AMD drivers and upgrade to cgminer 3. Hi Neoaix, Glad to help where I can.
On the series card, you could try bumping intensity up one number at a time to see if you can get more hash rate and still have a responsive monitor if it's driving the monitor or still have stability and few rejects if it's not driving the monitor. I don't generally exceed 19 for intensity at all.
For the , you could try this: Try this command if the card is driving a monitor and see what happens. I've never done anything with nvidia. You'll have to get help from someone else on that. I don't know if you can simultaneously do amd and nvidia although you might if the drivers don't fight.
This sometimes happens when the pool servers are busy. Make sure you're worker names and passwords are correct. You could try this website to test your connection speed to the internet and make sure that's normal for your connection.
I only use the speed test, not the system scan, etc. If you cannot connect to the net quickly and consistently, cgminer cannot get and send work. I had a few times when I was getting really low hash rate, so they may have been having problems. A few times, cgminer shut down and said no servers were available. Try stopping and restarting cgminer several times. After each restart, wait a few minutes to let the hash rate maximize. You could also try the other servers.
This assumes you're mining Litecoin. Other coins use different servers. Server list from here: I haven't done that though. Neoaix, Not sure exactly what your question is. Do you want to buy or build? The following thread talks about a generic parts list for a new rig and some basic costs.
It does not talk specifically about model numbers. If you have more questions, please elaborate a bit. Hey guys, i'm having an issue with CGminer whenever i use the --gpu-engine flag. For other noobs out thee.
If you get the error "ValueError too many values to unpack" Try lowering the length of your worker's password. My password was 19 characters long hey, this is good practice in the rest of the world. Brought it down to 6 characters, and the error went away and I'm mining.
Please post your config file for cgminer or batch file or command line. You haven't provided enough data.
How does it crash? Does it freeze solid? Does it get sluggish then freeze? Does the display distort? Is there any kind of error message? There could be a problem with one graphics card. Remove one and try that. Try thread concurrency and intensity 12 on the graphics card that's driving your monitor. Try running with no overclocking at all.
I couldn't find what the default clock speed for your card is with a little googling, but try setting it to , which may be a bit of an underclock. You must have enough horsepower left to drive your display without cgminer taking all the gpu cycles. Do some more testing. Give us more data to munch on. Then we may be able to help. PS, this thread talks about how to manage gpu engine and fan speeds, how to determine which command in the config file is driving which gpu, how to manage heat and temperature, and provides a sample config file.
Disclaimer, I posted the thread, so I'm biased, but I think it contains good and relevant info. If your run Windows 8, there is a free app in the store! After installation you put your password and worker name in and voila! Imafia, that's a very,very slow card, practically impossible for you to get credited..
You'll be better off hashing with your cpu.. I have installed Windows 7 64bit, cgminer 3. There is a 64 bit version of the miner. Dos but right now, my PC scan said there's a problem with my minerd. I have seen minerd used in malware to hijack a computer and make it part of a mining botnet. You will have to make an exception for it in your anti-virus.
