All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
Just like we have recently prepared a Miner Control 1.5.5 Pack for Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti that can be used for other Nvidia-based GPUs as well it is also time to update the NiceHash Control Tool version for Radeon R9 280x to the new Miner Control. Do note that you can use this package with other AMD-based Radeon cards, however to ensure proper calculation of the actual profit and to use the most profitable algorithms for your miner you will have to edit the configuration settings for the supported algorithms.
So here it is, a Miner Control package with the latest sgminer 5.0.1 development version along with the OpenCL libraries from the AMD drivers 14.6 to ensure proper support for NeoScrypt if you are using newer drivers. The package is configured for a single Radeon R9 280X GPU with the settings for each algorithm based on a reference non-overclocked card and is configured to work NiceHash, WestHash, TradeMyBit, Yaamp and Wafflepool, supporting only the more profitable X11, X13, X15, NIST5 and NeoScrypt algorithms.
To be ready to use the Radeon R9 280X package you just need to update the account settings for each pool to reflect your BTC payment address and only for TradeMyBit you would need to set your account worker id and your API key for the current prices (inside the configuration file). Do note that the default configuration that we have set is mining from time to time for the author of the software (Miner Control) as a donation alternative, but you can change that setting should you wish to.
