Claymore's Dual Ethereum + Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak AMD+NVIDIA GPU Miner.=========================Latest version is v14.7 - Supercharged Edition:- now the miner driver does not require switching Windows to Test Mode. If you want to turn Test Mode off, use "-driver uninstall" option (with admin rights) and reboot, then start miner with admin rights to install new driver automatically when necessary (or use "-driver install" option directly). If you have any problems with signed driver you can use "-driver install_test" option, it uses old approach: enables Test Mode (reboot is required) and installs unsigned driver.- added "-showpower" option for stats about GPU power consumption, press "s" to see it. Both AMD and Nvidia cards are supported, except Linux gpu-pro drivers and Radeon7 cards.- updated Remote Manager to show total power consumption.- fixed issue with "-logsmaxsize" option when "-logfile" option is used to specify directory for log files.- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.DOWNLOAD LINK: MEGA - https://mega.nz/#F!LQ1WRIbK!M4rh7maZb7crTJ_QkPa1Owversion is v14.6 - Supercharged Edition:- now "-rxboost" option also supports old AMD cards (Hawaii, Tonga, Tahiti, Pitcairn), use "-rxboost 1" to improve hashrate up to 5% by applying some additional memory timings.- now "-rxboost" option supports all AMD drivers.- now "-strap" for AMD cards also supports AMD blockchain drivers.- some changes to further reduce stale shares a bit.- added "-minspeedtime" option.- added statistics for shares accepting time (min/max/average), press "s" to see it.- updated Remote Manager to show shares accepting time.- a few minor bug fixes and improvements.FEATURES:- Supports applying optimized memory timings (straps) on-the-fly in Windows, without flashing VBIOS (currently Polaris, Vega, Nvidia 10xx cards only), up to 20% speedup. Best straps for Ethereum are included.- Supports new "dual mining" mode: mining both Ethereum and Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak at the same time, with no impact on Ethereum mining speed. Ethereum-only mining mode is supported as well.- Effective Ethereum mining speed is higher by 3-5% because of a completely different miner code - much less invalid and outdated shares, higher GPU load, optimized OpenCL code, optimized assembler kernels.- Supports both AMD and nVidia cards, even mixed.- No DAG files.- Supports all Stratum versions for Ethereum: can be used directly without any proxies with all pools that support eth-proxy, qtminer or miner-proxy.- Supports Ethereum and Siacoin solo mining.- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Decred.- Supports both HTTP and Stratum for Siacoin.- Supports Stratum for Lbry, Pascal, Blake2s, Keccak.- Supports failover.- Displays detailed mining information and hashrate for every card.- Supports remote monitoring and management.- Supports GPU selection, built-in GPU overclocking features and temperature management.- Supports Ethereum forks (Expanse, etc).- Windows and Linux versions.This version is POOL/SOLO for Ethereum, POOL for Decred, POOL/SOLO for Siacoin, POOL for Lbry, POOL for Pascal, POOL for Blake2s, POOL for Keccak.For old AMD cards, Catalyst (Crimson) 15.12 is required for best performance and compatibility.For AMD 4xx/5xx cards (Polaris) you can use any recent drivers.For AMD cards, set the following environment variables, especially if you have 2...4GB cards:GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100This miner is free-to-use, however, current developer fee is 1%, every hour the miner mines for 36 seconds for developer. For all 2GB cards and 3GB cards devfee is 0%, so on these cards you can mine all ETH forks without devfee, this miner is completely free in this case.If some cards are 2...3GB and some >3GB, 2...3GB cards still mine for you during devfee time, only cards that have more than 3GB memory will be used for devfee mining. Miner displays appropriate messages during startup.Second coin (Decred/Siacoin/Lbry/Pascal/Blake2s/Keccak) is mined without developer fee.So the developer fee is 0...1%, if you don't agree with the dev fee - don't use this miner, or use "-nofee" option.Attempts to cheat and remove dev fee will cause a bit slower mining speed (same as "-nofee 1") though miner will show same hashrate. Miner cannot just stop if cheat is detected because creators of cheats would know that the cheat does not work and they would find new tricks. If miner does not show any errors or slowdowns, they are happy.This version is for recent AMD videocards only: 7xxx, 2xx and 3xx, 2GB or more. Recent nVidia videocards are supported as well.CONFIGURATION FILEYou can use "config.txt" file instead of specifying options in command line. If there are not any command line options, miner will check "config.txt" file for options.If there is only one option in the command line, it must be configuration file name.If there are two or more options in the command line, miner will take all options from the command line, not from configuration file.Place one option per line, if first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored. You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.

These files have text format, one pool per line. Every pool has 3 connection attempts. Miner disconnects automatically if pool does not send new jobs for a long time or if pool rejects too many shares.If the first character of a line is ";" or "#", this line will be ignored. Do not change spacing, spaces between parameters and values are required for parsing.If you need to specify "," character in parameter value, use two commas - ,, will be treated as one comma.You can reload "epools.txt" and "dpools.txt" files in runtime by pressing "r" key.Pool specified in the command line is "main" pool, miner will try to return to it every 30 minutes if it has to use some different pool from the list. If no pool was specified in the command line then first pool in the failover pools list is main pool.You can change 30 minutes time period to some different value with "-ftime" option, or use "-ftime 0" to disable switching to main pool.You can also use environment variables in "epools.txt", "dpools.txt" and "config.txt" files. For example, define "WORKER" environment variable and use it as "%WORKER%" in config.txt or in epools.txt.You can also select current pool in runtime by pressing "e" or "d" key.REMOTE MONITORING/MANAGEMENTMiner supports remote monitoring/management via JSON protocol over raw TCP/IP sockets. You can also get recent console text lines via HTTP.Start "EthMan.exe" from "Remote management" subfolder (Windows version only).Check built-in help for more information. "API.txt" file contains more details about protocol.KNOWN ISSUES- AMD cards: on some cards you can notice non-constant mining speed in dual mode, sometimes speed becomes a bit slower. This issue was mostly fixed in recent versions, but not completely.- AMD cards: in Linux with gpu-pro drivers, the list of GPUs may differ from the list of temperatures. You can use -di to change order of GPUs to match both lists.- nVidia cards: dual mode is not so effective as for AMD cards.- Windows 10 Defender recognizes miner as a virus, some antiviruses do the same. Miner is not a virus, add it to Defender exceptions. I write miners since 2014. Most of them are recognized as viruses by some paranoid antiviruses, perhaps because I pack my miners to protect them from disassembling, perhaps because some people include them into their botnets, or perhaps these antiviruses are not good, I don't know. For these years, a lot of people used my miners and nobody confirmed that my miner stole anything or did something bad. Note that I can guarantee clean binaries only for official links in my posts on this forum (bitcointalk). If you downloaded miner from some other link - it really can be a virus.However, my miners are closed-source so I cannot prove that they are not viruses. If you think that I write viruses instead of good miners - do not use this miner, or at least use it on systems without any valuable data.TROUBLESHOOTING1. Install Catalyst v15.12 for old AMD cards; for Fury, Polaris and Vega cards use latest blockchain drivers.2. Disable overclocking.3. Set environment variables as described above.4. Set Virtual Memory 16 GB or more.5. Reboot computer.6. Check hardware, risers.7. Set some timeout in .bat file before starting miner at system startup (30sec or even a minute), and try "-ethi 4" to check if it is more stable. It can help if miner is not stable on some system.FAQ- Miner works too slowly when I mine ETH/ETC but works fine when I mine some ETH fork.Check if you enabled "Compute Mode" in AMD drivers, also you can press "y" key to turn on "Compute Mode" in AMD drivers for all cards (Windows only).- I cannot mine ETH/ETC with Nvidia 3GB card in Windows 10.Windows 10 internally allocates about 20% of GPU memory so applications can use only 80% of GPU memory. Use Windows 7 or Linux.
MSI Afterburner 4.6.2 Beta 1 download - Guru3D and MSI have been working hard on AfterBurner, today we release an updated this revision of Afterburner, this application successfully secured the leading position on graphics card utilities.MSI Afterburner is ultimate graphics card utility, developed by the Guru3D RivaTuner team. The Beta releases sometimes have an expiration limit, the stable and final build releases do not. We recommend using a final build. We have written a GeForce GTX series 1000 and newer overclocking guide right here as over time a number of things changed like Curve based tweaking as well as automated tweaking. Not just that, we have also updated RTSS, our statistics server that enables the overlay with MSI AfterBurner to offer DirectX 12 overlay support. Please read the full release notes for all changes (as there are quite a few of them). Have fun tweaking. Does your overlay not work anymore after an update? Please perform a full uninstall of RTSS and AfterBurner (with profiles removal) and then perform a CLEAN install of it.Download MSI Afterburner - https://mega.nz/#F!fxMQiARQ!Nsxe33NJ3HIIjzrmqqowTQVersion 4.6.2 Added new MSI Steampunked skin by Drerex design Improved skin engine: Optimized skin rendering performance for skins using multiple overlapped animated indicators Added position smoothing support to skinned indicators Now skinned applications can forcibly disable indicator animation if necessary Skin format reference guide has been updated to v1.8 to document these changes Notes on Animated Steampunk Skin - 4.6.2 is optimized to improve performance of background animation rendering of new Steampunked skin, however, skin animation can still be rather performance hungry on old slow CPUs. So keep your eyes on CPU usage when using this skin, and if it is too high for you, you may try to do the following things to reduce it: Set skin composition mode to "layered with colorkey" (the fastest one) if you were using "layered with alpha" mode. Layered skin composition mode with alpha channel is the slowest one and the most CPU hungry due to using per-pixel transparency Reduce skin scaling factor in UI properties of MSI AB, higher skin scaling values cause higher CPU load Disable animation completely, currently there is no dedicated option for it in GUI, however you can do it via editing the config and setting EnableAnimatedIndicators to 0 Version 4.6.1 Added new MSI Touch of Modern skin by Drerex design Added asynchronous dual fan control support for reference design NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20x0 series graphics cards. Please take a note that only 100% NVIDIA reference design dual fan control implementations are supported, third party proprietary asynchronous fan control solutions (e.g. EVGA iCX series asynchronous fans) are not supported and will not be supported in future versions. The following asynchronous fan control functionality is available: Added new “Synchronize fan speeds” button, which is allowing you to switch between synchronous and asynchronours fan control modes. Please take a note that new fan speed controls are available in v4 skins only, v3 and v2 skins are deprecated and no longer receive new functionality When fan speeds synchronization is enabled, MSI Afterburner’s fan control functionality behaves exactly like in the previous version, i.e. both fans are running asynchronically in default hardware automatic fan speed control mode but become linked synchronically if you enable manual or software automatic fan speed control mode When fan speeds synchronization is disabled, you may select and adjust each fan speed independently. For software automatic fan speed control mode independent temperature curves are also adjustable for each fan Improved hardware monitoring module: Inverted hotkeys handling approach for multiple selected hardware monitoring graphs. Previously single graph settings mode was active by default, but you could apply some settings (e.g. “Show in On-Screen Display”) to multiple selected graphs with <Ctrl> hotkey modifier. Now such settings are applied to multiple selected graphs by default and <Ctrl> hotkey modifier is used to apply settings to single focused graph Group operation notifier has been moved to hardware monitoring graph properties header Improved backward compatibility with monitoring profiles created in the previous versions of application. It is no longer necessary to recreate the profiles having monitoring settings without On-Screen Display layout It is no longer necessary to click <Apply> button inside the On-Screen Display layout editor after changing current layout, now the changes are applied properly on closing the editor The progress of saving multiple graphs’ settings is now displayed in the caption of the application’s property sheet Optimized handling of “dirty” flag for settings decreases saving time for multiple graph’s settings when using multiple subsequent group operations Added new “Hide attached monitoring panel” command to the context menu of hardware monitoring window. You may use it to toggle visibility of monitoring window when it is attached to the main application window Now you may press <Ctrl> + <M> hotkeys to toggle monitoring window attachment Improved voltage/frequency curve editor for both AMD and NVIDIA GPUs: Now you may hold <Shift>and press left mouse button on initial desired horizontal position in the editor window to begin fragment selection, then drag mouse cursor to desired final horizontal position and release left mouse button to select a fragment. The following functionality is available for selected fragments: You may double click the editor window to reset fragment selection You may adjust the offset for any point inside the selection with mouse cursor to apply the same offset simultaneously to all selected points You may adjust the offset for any point inside the selection with keyboard cursor keys, <Enter> or <Shift>+<Enter>keys to apply the same offset or specify the same target frequency or voltage for all selected points Improved skin engine: Skin engine no longer crashes when switching between the skins having the same site with and without alpha channel Added thumbless skinned slider controls support Added alpha path threshold support for skinned slider controls Improved skin cross-compatibility layer: Extended list of applications supported by skin cross-compatibility layer Various compatibility fixes for third party skins supported by cross-compatibility layer Fixed issue with GUI stopping responding during adjusting skin scaling ratio on the fly in high DPI mode when skin composition mode was set to layered mode with alpha Updated third party hardware database: Added new third party voltage control capable graphics cards to the database Added new third party graphics cards with multichannel GPU, memory and VRM temperature sensors to the database RivaTuner Statistics Server has been upgraded to v7.2.2

MTP require graphics card with at least 5Gb memory. Latest GeForce driver 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended). Some algorithms such as NeoScrypt require the virtual memory (swap file) with the same size as all of the GPU's memory. Internet connection Windows Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit versions) Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 Linux Ubuntu 14.04+, Debian 8+ (64-bit versions) Package libc-ares2. Installing libc-ares2 package is as easy as running the following command on terminal: apt-get install libc-ares2 Notes Antivirus Software Reports CryptoDredge is not a piece of malicious software. You may try to add an exception in antivirus software you use. Rejected Shares There are many reasons for rejected shares. The primary reasons are: high network latency overloaded mining server aggressive graphics card overclocking Watchdog If you are using a third-party watchdog, you can disable the built-in watchdog by using --no-watchdog option. Example: Code: CryptoDredge -a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<POOL> -u <WALLET_ADDRESS> --no-watchdog Several Instances After a While It seems that you are using an own restart mechanism of CryptoDredge (see the Watchdog item). Crash Reporting If the built-in watchdog is enabled then CryptoDredge will generate and send us the report. You can disable error reporting with --no-crashreport option. Allowing CryptoDredge to send us automatic reports helps us prioritize what to fix and improve in the future versions. Crash reports won't include any personal information about you, but they might include: Operating System version Driver version Miner configuration Application crash data MTP Algorithm System Requirements: GPUs with at least 5 GB of memory There are no special CPU and RAM requirements, 4 GB must be sufficient In comparison to other algorithms, MTP requires transferring large amounts of data to the pool. This may be a problem for limited and slow connections. The miner has to do some extra work every time that the pool sends a new "job", so an average hashrate will be a bit slow. Developer fee is 2% for MTP. Argon2d (NIM) Algorithm If you encounter many "invalid share: invalid pow" errors from the pool, set --hashrate option to calculate the start difficulty.
