Mining on and off since late 2011, now with 3 mh/s on scrypt altcoins. I'm pretty confident this time, lets see how its going for the next few weeks... good thing with mining: You can always make a huge portion of your investment back with just selling the hardware  Grin

Oh no. khash obviously.That was a typo.

Alright I'll try it again. That was a pain in the butt. But It finally loaded to where you can see them. The first image is with the patcher in the back ground hashing along at mid 400s. The second one I've turned the patcher off and it slows down to 180s. I turn it back on in the third and it goes back up to 400s. The only changes made to the computer between screen shots is the patcher being turned on and off no other programs or settings were touched. This doesn't work on my laptops NVidia 460m card.

Just Doge and LTC at the moment. Tried getting in on a couple of new alt coins during launch.

Using my gaming PC which has a 7950, which I run between 650kh/s (max range without crazy temps)  and 550kh/s (normal range, really undevaulted)

Not really serious about mining though, just using it as a way to get a hold of some coins, so I can play around with trading.

I just started learning about cryptocurrency and mining about a month ago, mostly for fun. I don't have a lot of mining capacity, but I bought myself a new Radeon R9 280x for Christmas. That, I hope, should make both games and mining a LOT better.

So far, I've mined LTC, DOGE, QRK, and now, OFF.

Oh, and I'm a CG artist by profession.

I am not a total newbie but just heard about btc's few months ago. I am mining with CPU therefore XPM since it's one of the few coins you can mine with CPU.

I almost got into mining a year or so ago, but never quite got around to it - wish I had since BTC has gone up massively since then!

I finally started mining just before Christmas, on a couple of Nvidia 780s, an R9 290 and some CPUs.  I've been mining Quark on the CPUs until today, now I've switched them all over to Particle so fingers crossed that one takes off!  On the GPUs I started off with LTC, then switched over to Hashcows / Middlecoin with a couple-of-days foray into OGC when it launched, as much so I could be involved at the launch of a coin (and do a little solo mining) as anything else.

I'm hoping that Quark picks up in value this month, as I've converted the 0.3 or so BTC I've got from the switching pools so far into Quarks.  Not big money, but a reasonable chunk of what I "invested" at the beginning (I already had the Nvidia GPUs but bought the 790 just for mining).

I've been mining on a small scale for about 7 months and made a r9 290 rig (4 of the GPU's) as of a few months ago. So far so good. Although LTC difficulty skyrocketed and middlecoin has not been paying out as well as I would like. So I'm looking into alt coins to see what other options there are.

I was initially playing about with a few block erupters and got interested enough to buy one of the Technobit 24GHs miners.  Neat little piece of specialised hardware really - I get the feeling that something delivered on schedule and performing as advertised is something of a rarity so I was satisfied there.  Might even ROI which is more of a bonus really.

Also have a 7950 running along at about 700KHs - should have bought more when they were available I guess.

According to https://litecoin.info/Mining_Hardware_Comparison you should be able to squeeze out some more khashes using the right settings.

I have two rigs with:

3 x XFX 7950 each. Doing about 550kh/s per card. Sometimes on new coin launches, when diff is still low, I also setup some DigitalOcean droplets to mine at the start.

For a tutorial on that: http://dogecoin.ga/dogecoin_mining_cloud_servers.htm

Doing this about 1 month now.

Newbie here from the Philly suburbs. Just started mining scrypt coins a couple of weeks ago at around 3.2 Mh/s. Wishing I got in a lot earlier but having fun building rigs, mining and trading altcoins for BTC.

I am very sad because heard about crypto world too late.
My top grafic card that i bought in 2010 - now not so strong for mining, hell, i wish i knew about mining in 2010-2011.
however, i am started mining some day ago and i hope to upgrade my pc with moneys from mining, hope that my pc doesn't die from 24/7 mining. lol
don't have extra money to do upgrade immediatly, so only hope old card will work until i get new card.
Old card will help me to buy new card? unbelievable ))
only must choose right coins to mine..
