best mining software and config for gtx1070


  • | Tip sabre

    hey guys still trying to get my rig working right, any help would be appreciated, need software and config file,


  • | Tip shadow1117

    @sabre for nvidia cards i always recomend ccminer
    https://github.com/djm34/ccminer-sp-neoscrypt/releases/tag/1.5.79-djm34-edition

    and for your config where do you want to mine?


  • | Tip sabre

    @shadow1117 well i’d like to try solo mining for fun, but i have pool accounts on give me coins as well as ,multipool
    give me coins for ftc and multi pool they are using a multi coin deal where they change the coin depending on profitability but the address is us-west.multipool.us:7777 and i believe it uses stratum+tcp at beginning
    any help would be appreciated,

    @sabre Sorry I posted in the other thread about… well, everything else.

    AFAIK all the algo’s supported on multipool.us are ASIC enabled now, and almost all the coins aren’t profitable with GPU mining, at least the algo’s they support (scrypt, SHA-256, X11). DigiByte is multi-algo and does have 3 others you can run on GPU, but not through multipool.

    So, to do FTC on give-me-coins using ccminer, first create a worker on the website, then a bat file on windows, which would look like:

    ccminer.exe -a neoscrypt -q -o stratum+tcp://ftc-neo.give-me-coins.com:3336 -u <username.worker> -p <password>

    This bat would have to be in the same folder as ccminer.exe, otherwise put the full path to the ccminer executable if you want to put it somewhere like your desktop.

    The -q param limits the miner’s terminal output to only showing accepted/rejected shares and hashrate.

    @bluebox cool that’s good to know, now i was running guiminer at one point and was howing me a hashrate of like 500mhash which i thought was amazing, and it was showing accepted shares but of course the pool wasn’t showing it.

    any ideas why


  • | Tip bluebox

    @sabre Guiminer is for mining Bitcoin, which is the SHA-256 algorythm, not Feathercoin, which is neoscrypt. Bitcoin is un-mineable with GPU’s today. Who knows, guiminer may be set up with the dev’s bitcoin address and a default pool unless you change it, so you may have mined 1 or 2 satoshi worth .002 cents in a day’s time for the developer.

    So, again: ccminer supports your nVidia based card, and sgminer or @ghostlander’s nsgminer support AMD cards. All have support for neoscrypt.

    @bluebox yeah i read that about guiminer but downloaded it to play with it, you can actually make it call up different miners, point it to different pools, and port numbers run it via cpu which it does detect my cpu and you can also choose the gpu to mine it detected my old rx480 but haven’t ran the program with my new gtx1070
    funny thing is it seems to detect the devices perfectly and connect to pools even solo mining wallets per settings, i was originally hoping i could download it and maybe tweak it to work for my purposes because i like the gui and the features… i also loved the fact that it detected my devices with no problems, might be a good idea for someone more advanced than me to download it and check it out and maybe repurpose it for current needs, looks like it has the capability to use different algo’s and can be configured to run with different miners, has cuda and opencl support… as well as cpu just an idea…

    so i guess i’m mining right… is there a way to check my gpu stats with ccminer (fan speed, usage, temp etc…)


  • | Tip bluebox

    @sabre Yep, you’re mining FTC.

    To see fan speed, power and temps, open another cmd and run
    C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI\nvidia-smi.exe
    without any arguments.

    @sabre nice hash rate! would you mind sharing your overclocking settings for the gtx1070? I only get around 800 KH/s with mine.
