Need help :/
« on: July 24, 2013, 04:10:47 PM »



What I would like to know is:


1. What's the best operating system to run mining on?
2. What's the best software to run both cards at the same time? or is running two different pieces of software for each card better?
3. Are there any hints/tips for these cards to run at the fastest they possibly can with the least power draw?
4. Is anyone willing to help me along the way? (Obviously if it pays off a reward will be issued)

System Spec:


Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R Version 2.0 Motherboard
i7 930 @ 4.2GHz on H100i Water Cooling
PNY GTX670 2048MB Nvidia Graphics Card
XFX HD5870 1024MB AMD ATi Graphics Card
6GB Corsair Dominator 1600MHz 7-8-7-20
Corsair TX650W Power Supply

If you look on the various boards you will find the exact answers to all of your questions. 

I will tell you this though:

There are no "right answers" to some of your questions....it comes down to your level of knowledge with *nix operating systems and how much time you want to spend tweaking and tuning.

Altough I will say that I think the general consensus is that the best mining software is cgminer.

Google "litecoin mining hardware comparison" and you will see a ton of info on tuning different cards...that's how I got going and all my cards do between 620-670kh/s

Good luck
