miner-control-tool-package-update

Time for another update of the complete packages based on the Miner Control tool for Nvidia GeForce GT 750 Ti and AMD Radon R9 280x GPUs due to hte latest developments in the mining world. The latest versions you can download from the links below include some updates and it removes the YAAMP pool support as it has become a part of NiceHash and currently redirects to their stratum servers. The latest updates also includes the most recent versions of SP-MOD’s ccMiner for Nvidia Maxwell as well as the sgminer fork with increased performance for Quark and Qubit with pre-compiled Binary Kernels for 280X. The two Miner Control tool packages are based on the latest fork of Miner Control from KBomba version 1.6.4.

To be ready to use the packages you just need to update the account settings for each pool to reflect your BTC payment address. 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. The packages are ready to be used with either AMD Radeon R9 280X or Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti cards, but you can also us the Nvidia package for other GPUs or more cards – what you may need to reflect however in the config file is the total hashrate and power usage. Since the AMD packages contains not only specific settings for AMD Radeon R9 280X, but also pre-compiled binary kernels specifically for that particular card if using it with other GPUs you will actually be getting lower hashrate, though n problem to use it with multiple 280X cards.

yaamp-purchased-by-nicehash

After having trouble for quite some time, often being offline due to attacks and various other issues and even announcing that it will be shut down permamently it seems that the mining pool Yaamp has found a solution. If you try to open the official website of the pool you will notice a message saying that it has been purchased by NiceHash and the mining has been redirected to the stratum servers of the new owner. There is also a recommendation to switch to the NiceHash mining pools as after 2015-07-31 Yaamp will stop their stratum servers that are currently just redirecting to NiceHash. So if you are still mining at Yaamp you might want to consider moving either directly to NiceHash/WestHash or another mining pool.
