Updated ccMiner 1.0 beta with Improved Performance for X11 Mining

14 May


The ccMiner software miner for Nvidia GPUs has received another update of the source code with improved performance for X11 algorithm mining, so you should be getting higher hashrate when mining crypto currencies such as DarkCoin. We have compiled a binary for Windows that you can find below and try on your Nvidia GPU. The performance that the current optimized code for X11 offers on our test GeForce GTX 780 Ti GPU is almost 4.7 MHS (non overclocked) and with the previous 1.0 release of ccminer we were getting hashrate of about 2.8 MHS when mining DarkCoin. On a GTX 750 Ti you are probably going to get pretty much the same performance that a Radeon R9 280X currently has for X11 mining or about 2 MHS or slightly more. So now Nvidia clearly has the advantage in X11 mining in terms of performance over AMD.

Do note that the windows binary you can download below is compiled for Compute 3.0, 3.5 and 5.0 cards (32-bit version only), so it will not work on older cards. It is also compiled with Visual Studio 2012, so if you do not already have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 you will have to download and install it, otherwise you may be getting error for a missing DLL library.

Thanks for always provide the binaries.

Thanks for this… GTX 750 TI up from 1580 -> 2250 Khs!


May 14th, 2014 at 22:25

i only get 1700-1950khs on gt750ti, Is it need special config?


May 14th, 2014 at 22:48

conky606 try overclocking. On my MSI TwinFrozt I put +135MHz core clock and +400MHz on memory clock and I’m getting ~2160


This ccminer version did change something. With the previous version I was able to watch youtube, vimeo or video files and the miner would adjust itself so it wouldn’t lag.
With this new beta it lags badly (with or without OC) :( Any idea why? CPU usage is reduced so I guess it’s not that?


May 14th, 2014 at 23:09

Proposal, the previous version was not fully optimized to utilize the hardware available, this one is… where do you think the extra performance comes from… :)


May 14th, 2014 at 23:15

Ok thanks for the explanation. I guess I’ll keep the old one to keep on mining will I watch a movie


May 15th, 2014 at 02:20

Thanks for this! I was about to swap out my GTX770 for a R9.

When running I never get accepted… just keeps listing new detected blocks… what am I doing wrong?

I am running a GTX770 (if that makes a difference)


May 15th, 2014 at 14:47

energy, make sure you are using ccminer30 and not ccminer35


May 15th, 2014 at 15:30


Thanks to you I have a GTX770 up an running at about 2.6 ~ 2.8 MH/s… but I tested many different pools before I was getting accepted threads. The one you recommended that is working for me is: tcp://stratum1.suchpool.tw:3335

And to think I was about to sell this for an R9 280x!

Time to get another GTX770

A huge thank you to: Christian Buchner, Christian H., the contributors to the CUDA implementation of ccminer. Donate to them… I will!!


May 15th, 2014 at 16:36

It seems that some of the pools are having trouble handling the additional load caused by many new miners, we are have been using this DRK pool with ccminer without problems so far: https://www2.coinmine.pl/drk/


May 15th, 2014 at 16:54

I noticed a 500Khs increase for both stock 750Ti cards (two different manufacturers) for a total of ~4Mhs. I also noticed a 5 watt total decrease in power consumption. A really nice update.

I’m using blackcoinpool and nicehash without issue.


May 15th, 2014 at 23:53

Is this also able to run the Groestl algo?


May 16th, 2014 at 00:53

didit, yes it does support Groestl as well.


May 17th, 2014 at 22:55

How many card u can have on 1 rig? how can i set up does it need driver mod like amd??


May 19th, 2014 at 21:45

Very new to mining, just trying solo darkcoin with new ccminer xll. 2 gtx 750tis (evga geforce), not overclocked.

\ccminer30.exe -t 2 -a x11 -s 1 -o -u user -p password

Is there any chance this is actually mining? And, how are the hashrates so high?? Started out in the 1200 kh/s range yesterday, now today up in the millions.


please help


May 21st, 2014 at 20:27

Ronael, apparently something went wrong as these values are way to high to be normal. We would not suggest to solo mine for DarkCoin as the difficulty is already way too high and you will have trouble finding a block solo with just two 750 TI cards.

Noob miner here….just to say a huge thank you to the article writer/binary compiler, subsequent posters and of course the two Christians …. I’m now getting ~4.7Mh/s combined on my two gtx680s (Who says they are obsolete :p)

Quick tips for fellow nubs:

Specify your GPUs in the batch file with e.g. -d gtx680#1,gtx680#2 . I found without this it used the first two cores of my CPU.

Also don’t make your worker passwords too complex, I found that including special characters (e.g. {,[,~) caused stratum authentication errors.

Hope that helps somebody, and once again thank you all o7

Hey, I’ve been running 750tis (Gigabyte and EVGA) and haven’t been able to get this to run. Keep getting an error like “GPU #(0-4): result for nonce $00000000 does not validate on CPU!”

What is it I’m doing wrong?


May 23rd, 2014 at 00:47

Does anyone know if there is a auto profit switching pool specifically for x11 coins that is mined only by x11 not script?


May 23rd, 2014 at 11:07

Hi, I am pretty new to the whole crypto thing and have been looking at dark for a while, but didn’t think I could run it with my GTX 760’s. I downloaded your ccminer and am running the 3.0, right now I am getting combined with both cards @ 3.3 mh/s, my problem is I have Power limit set to 100%, Core Clock set to +102 and Memory clock set to +102, but I am getting a VRel power cap which is only letting me get @70% power consumption and is causing my GPU usage to dip and spike like crazy..

When I run Cudaminer on Scrypt.. I can run at 100% power with core and memory clock at +192 and 99%GPU usage all day long, without the VRel cap..

Is there something I am doing wrong? Is 3.3mh/s good for (2) GeForce GTX 760’s? Thanks for your help!!

Has anyone got a compiled x64 version for Windows of this Version 1.0?? the 32bit versions fails on Windows 8.1 – I have tried to compile it but cant get all the dependency’s

I have tried running the ccminer 1.0 version on an old Dell 32 bit machine running XP. I keep getting “ccminer35 is not a valid Win32 application” Same with ccminer30 and ccminer50. Any ideas? I thought this was a 32 bit app.

Hi there, I have the same problem as Murphy1138. I can’t compile this version of ccminer on Windows 8.1. I’m quite a noob to mining, I’ve got a 750 ti, downloaded the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012, I think i did everything right but still I can’t get there. Any suggestions? Thanks


May 27th, 2014 at 00:24

Anyone using gtx 780? i wonder what difference is with the 780ti. Difference in mh/s worth buying the more expensive 780ti card? ^^


May 29th, 2014 at 05:39


I was getting around 2 – 2.5 Mh/s with my 780 if I remember correctly.

Wondering if anyone has tried dual gtx 780 Ti and what hashrate you could expect? :p


June 10th, 2014 at 13:56

I am running a evga gtx 760 “superclocked” . Overclock settings at gpu clock +130mhz, mem clock + 775mhz. 1700-2000kh/s now , Any tips? Have heard these can do 2.3/2.4


June 18th, 2014 at 23:01

how to set core clock directly on ccminer like for sgminer via command line


June 18th, 2014 at 23:41

Toplel, unfortunately this is not supported yet on ccMiner, so you need to use other software such as MSI Afterburner for example to set the GPU frequency.

I had recently been using a different version of Cuda miner and getting about 300/350 khs with that version. Once I downloaded this version I am now getting around 500/550 khs. A boost of over 60% to a preexisting vid card. Is there any way to change the intensity, mhz, ect on these cards? Im running 740m and also can I run my cpu miner while mining with a gpu. Thanks.

Once last thing, I am also looking for someone to team viewer my linux miner and find out what the problem with it is. I am getting nothing but rejected shares that state low difficulty share. The current difficulty it auto starts out with is between 200 million and 300 million.. I am a newb when it comes to linux and can’t fighure it out :( Please someone help me out on this. Illl let it mine for you for a couple days for your work if you can get it going.

You can email me at convicted2008@live.com or convicted2008@gmail.com

CCMiner crashes at start

Bat config: ccminer35.exe –algo=x11 -d gtx760M -o stratum+tcp://ispace.co.uk:XXXX -u username -p x

I double click on ccminer30…crashes at start… I reinstalled a lot of drivers over and over again… nothing…

question 1: Do I need “pause” at the end of the line?
question 2: Do I need to write anything else?


February 23rd, 2015 at 13:48

at Bat config, I changed to ccminer30.exe…. still….same crash,,, and i did used a username and a port…

go to task manager, ccminer still running, endtask it. then follow this command;
ccminer35.exe -a quark -o stratum+tcp://stratum.weminebtq.com:6010 -u okane81.w2 -p x it works fine for me.

does this support neoscrypt on a gtx 760, compute 3.0? if not, is there a ccminer out there which does?


February 18th, 2016 at 10:28

For NeoScrypt support you can try some of the latest releases of ccMiner’s tpruvot fork compiled for older GPUs like this one (use the 32-bit version): https://cryptomining-blog.com/6619-updated-ccminer-1-7-2-fork-by-tpruvot-with-vanillacoin-and-decred-support/
