kopiemtu

KopiemTu is an Lubuntu Linux-based mining distribution for Nvidia GPUs that has been available for quite some time already. The latest KopiemTu 3.0 that was just released however brings support for the latest generation of Nvidia Pascal-based GPUs – the GTX 1000 series. It comes with CUDA 8.0 support and GeForce GTX 370.28 driver, including support for overclocking or underclocking some GTX 1×00 GPUs. The whole mining distribution should fit on a 16GB USB flash drive making it easier to deploy and use without the need of a dedicated hard drive for the mining rig. There is a simple yet convenient web-based monitoring of your mining rigs activity available, so it is easy to keep track of them without the need to connect to each and every one of them. The distribution relies on ccMiner and the default version is apparently compiled for Pascal GPUs, though you can apparently easily configure it to be used with older Nvidia GPUs.

nicehash-control-tool-111-nv

We have updated our NiceHash Control tool package with ccMiner for use with GeForce GTX 750 Ti to the latest NiceHash Control version 1.1.1 that adds up some new useful features (it is possible to be used on other Nvidia-based GPUs with at least Compute 3.0 capabilities). The idea for this tool is to sell your hashrate at the NiceHash service making the highest possible profit by switching to the most profitable mining algorithm all the time. Our ready to use package supports the X11, X13, X15 and NIST5 algorithms as we consider that these are currently the most profitable ones as well as the ones that will use less power and generate less heat. The update introduces support for backup pools for each algorithm, so that when NiceHash is down you will move to the TradeMyBit pool as a backup (you need a registration there and to setup the backup pool’s user and password to your own).

What you need to do in order to use our GeForce GTX 750 Ti mining pack is to edit the config file and set your BTC address, edit the backup pool settings in the MINERS.bat file and then just start the AUTOSTART.BAT file to fire up the software. What is left is to monitor your earnings on the NiceHash website, and you can check the log.txt file for information what algorithm was switched to and when. This version of the package does provide a simple, but nicely working way for backup pool as the ccMiner software still does not have official failover pool support built-in. If you like this tool and our GeForce GTX 750 Ti mining pack based around it, don’t forget to send a tip to the author of the NiceHash Control software.

NHC Version 1.1.1 has introduced new way of killing the miner window, however we have been getting occasional errors for access denied using the new version and when this problem appears the software stops switching the algorithms and the last mining session continues. If you do encounter similar problem on either the Nvidia or AMD packs you might want to replace the executable with the previous version 1.1.0. We might revert the NHC version in the packs to it if we are not able to figure out what is causing the issue.

nicehash-control-tool-104

We have updated our NiceHash Control tool pack for GeForce GTX 750 Ti miners for selling your hashrate on the NiceHash service with maximum profit. Our mining pack comes ready for mining rigs using GTX 750 Ti cards, with a ccMiner fork supporting Windows XP or newer and Compute 3.0 cards or newer. We have preset the hashrate for a single GTX 750 Ti card for the various algorithms, though this pack supports only X11, X13, X15 and Nist5 as we believe that there is not much point in adding the others as they are not very profitable or mine on Nvidia GPUs or on GPUs in general. You can use the tool on mining rigs with multiple cards or with different Nvidia GPUs as well, but then the automatic calculation for the expected profit for the various algorithms will be off.

In this update we have used the latest version 1.04 of the NiceHash Control tool. Also we have made a simple solution to include a backup pool in case NiceHash does have some problems, something that is useful as ccMiner does not officially support failover pools. Do note that the backup pool will kick in after a minute of the miner not being able to connect to NiceHash and it will mine there until the software switches the most profitable algorithm or if the backup pool connection fails for some reason.

What you need to do in order to use our GTX 750 Ti mining pack is to edit the config file and set your BTC address, edit the backup pool in the MINERS.bat file and then just start the AUTOSTART.BAT file to fire up the software. What is left is to monitor your earnings on the NiceHash website, and you can check the log.txt file for information what algorithm was switched to and when. If you like this tool and our GTX 750 Ti mining pack based around it, don’t forget to send a tip to the author of the NiceHash Control software.
