When files downloaded, extract them and open folder. There you will find start.bat file, press “Right” click and “Edit”.
Change your file content to:

setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal Your_Ethereum_Address.RigName -epsw x

Don’t forget to change . to your ETH address what you can copy from jaxx.io Wallet. RigName is your miner name like “miner”.
Example:
setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0
setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -ewal 0xbfb5e20e58cb7fa67fbbf3f193ba349d71b276ef.miner -epsw x

Nvidia Miner

DGB mining

To setup Nvidia miner you have two choices DGB-Skein algo and Zcash.
Currently highly paying is DGB.
We suggest to use this pool: https://digibyte-skein.miningpoolhub.com/, register a new user to there and setup worker from “My Workers”.

To setup DGB mining you first need to download CCMiner-Alexis. You can find this file from: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1777336.0 Download “NemosMiner-v1.7.4-ZPOOL” and extract it. Inside folder create new file like: “skein.bat” and open it.
Insert this to folder:
ccminerAlexis78 -a skein -o stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:20527 -u nokia555.3 -p sd=1.024 --api-bind=0.0.0.0:4068

And change “Nokia555.3” with your own user and worker name from the pool. Now when all changed just start the “skein.bat” file and it should be connected.

ZCash mining

For ZCash mining we suggest to use pool: http://zcash.flypool.org/
ZCash for Nvidia can be mined with EWBF miner from here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1707546.0

For ZCash wallet address you can use also Jaxx.io.

Setting TDP, core and memory for mining

First of all, this is a risky thing and we are not responsible of any damage made when you change your settings.

For AMD/Nvidia cards you can change Powerlimit, Core clock and Memory Clocks to get lower power usage and better performance. For that you need “MSI Afterburner“.

MSI Gaming 3X GTX1080
These are example GTX1080 settings for DGB-Skein mining. We get 750mh/s with 180W from wall.

Inno3D GTX1080 TI
Does about 915Mh/s for DGB-skein @180W from wall.

5. Name for your rig like “Miner”
6. Type – This depends on software you are using. Claymore dual miner, CCMiner-Alexis or EWBF miner.
7. Now press add host, it should pop up on list.
EthMonitoring
8. Now press “Start monitoring”.
9. If it says “OFFLINE” then you should check the host address or check if you have enabled API access for your mining software. EWBF requires enabling by command parameter.
10. If data is seen go to monitoring website, there you will see your miner listed with data.

11. Now you have two different notification services to use. One is Telegram (FREE but requires internet all the time) and one is SMS Service (SMS costs to send like 0.016$).

Profit monitoring for miner

Currently only supports: ETH, ZCash and DGB from WhatToMiner.com

Tips and tricks for miner software API

— Claymore’s miner v9.4 needs to be enabled in firewall, v9.3 doesn’t have this problem.
— EWBF needs to have –api 0.0.0.0:42000 command line parameter added to enable API access.
— CCMiner-Alexis 1.0 needs to have –api-bind=0.0.0.0:4068 parameter in the command line for API access.

Always remember to support the software developers for hard work 🙂
