All About Bitcoin and Litecoin mining and other alternative crypto currencies
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.
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.

There are people that are so much into crypto currencies that they follow all new launches and try to mine what they consider will bring them more profit, and then there are the people that just want to take it easy and get a good profit from mining without too much work required and risk. If you are in the second group and are mining with Nvidia GPUs such as the GTX 750 Ti, then you might want to check out a tool called NiceHash Control that can track what is the most profitable crypto algorithm to mine and to sell your hashrate at NiceHash. The tool does take into account your hardware and what hashrate it provides you with for each algorithm, as well as the current price for the various algorithms supported by NiceHash and starts and stops specific miner software to mine the most profitable algorithm at the moment. In the end you are getting paid for your hashrate in Bitcoins directly and you make a nice profit, without having to track exchanges and exchange rates or follow new coin launches all the time.
All of this however does take some tweaking and tinkering in order to configure the software and miner to work with your hardware, and since we already did play with it we have decided to give you a package already configured for single GTX 750 Ti card mining and that will mine the most profitable algorithm choosing between X11, X13, X15 and Nist5. We don’t believe that mining for Keccak or Scrypt-N on Nvidia GPUs will be very profitable, let alone if you are going to be using Scrypt or SHA256 where ASIC miners have already taken over. If you have more than a single GTX 750 Ti card just multiply the hashrate set for a single card in the config file by the number of cards in your rig. The good thing is that this tool actually does take into account the hashrate you get with various algorithms, so even if the NiceHash website says that X15 is the most profitable algorithm for the moment it may mine X11 or X13 on your system. The reasonis that while X15 might be more profitable in general, the higher hashrate you get mining X11 with the bit lower price for it might still turn to be more profitable in your case, as even with higher price the X15 hashrate will be lower than the one you get with X11 or X13 for example. We have included the latest ccMiner fork with X15 support, so all that is left for you is to set your BTC payment address in the config and run the AUTOSTART.BAT file, unless you have to do some hashrate changes in the config as well based on your GPUs that is. You might also want to check out the Readme file for some extra information about the NiceHash Control. So far the tool is working pretty well, though it needs some more polishing, unfortunately it is only available for Windows, so Linux users are not able to take advantage from it.
