If you have some spare CPU power for mining various GPU mineable algorithms along with the GPU mining rigs and use the generated heat to keep you warm at home this winter, then you might want to check out the new cpuminer fork from Tanguy Pruvot (source). This fork has support not only for the common ASIC mineable SHA256d and Scrypt algorithms that you don’t need to bother with on a CPU anyway, but also for many other algorithms such as X11, X13, X14, X15, Cryptonight, Fresh, Blake, Neoscrypt and others. The performance you can get from a single CPU is nowhere near that a GPU can generate, but still if you manage to mine enough to partially cover the electricity used and use the heat generated from the CPU to keep you warm in the winter it might not be that bad… especially if you use the available CPU power of any GPU mining rigs that you are utilizing already.
