Possible to mine ftc with ccminer Alexis?


  • | Tip FLAMER283

    Hi

    I’ve been mining ftc for a few months now and saw that ccminer alexis gives a better hashrate but I get the error “Does not validate on CPU” not sure how to fix this.

    Just want to know if anyone managed to get it working.

    Agreed, ccminer alexis gives a better hashrate. Please let us know your CPU/GPU. And can you tell us which guide you followed?

    I have a gtx 980 and my cpu is i5-3570k. I did not follow a guide just used my config from ccminer.

    @flamer283 I’ve seen this mainly with tpruvot’s ccminer, and alexis is a fork of it. it might be something in the code that’s more sensitive to 1) overclocking of main clocks and/or memory, 2) cpu processing power/throughput, 3) miner intensity value set too high (or auto setting choosing too high a value). I don’t ever recall seeing a thorough explanation. 😕

    If you’re not overclocking, don’t have a wimpy cpu, and aren’t trying to set intensity too high yourself, you can try setting intensity to a low value like -i 10, and work it up until you see the error again and use the last value that worked.

    @bluebox My gpu is running on default clock my cpu is i5 3570k and I cant change the intensity in the miner. When I add -i 12 it just ignores it and prints a line that says intensity set to 15.92
