most virus protection (especially corporate setups) will detect the miner as unwanted and probably not allow this at all....

I would suggest looking at cpu's like Intel L5335... The TDP is quite low for being a quad core...  I even ran the CPU algos on my SLAED models (same as L5335, but 3.0Ghz and not an L-series) and they performed quite well, but the power draw went up quite a bit.


CPU mining is hard to be profitable when you pay for your own power.  The only machines that truly make good use if the power are multiple processor machines due to the fact that the overhead power consumption is less than if you has separate machines per-cpu.

Even the SOC type CPU's or ultra low power mobile CPU's just don't make enough alone to justify running them when power is paid for.  The figures just don't add up to anything but a negative....

if you are paying .03c/kwh, then by all means, mine with anything you can....

Great. Thanks for sharing your recommendations when doing CPU mining. As it would turn out unprofitable to mine any coin with a CPU, it is best to just do this task for fun and learning, rather than making some serious money out of it.

Unless you have an old PC lying around which still works, then I suggest that you mine all you can with it until it dies. In my case, I'm lucky to run the miner software at a college PC, without interference from antivirus software nor network access by doing so. Since I don't pay a cent for electricity by using the PC, then it can be seen as a way of making free money. Just my thoughts.  Smiley

Yep... I don't pay for my electricity at home, it's a part of my fixed rent.  So I utilize what I can by having my old Athalon X2 64 machines, and early generation i5/i7 laptops/machines running with extra forced-air cooling....   Typically I wouldn't do it.... but there are some scenarios.   It's nice getting a steady trickle of 0.00000015-0.000000105 all day on top of the bigger 0.000019 per block reward of the GPU coins my home miners bring in.

The secondary reason I run them especially in the winter is the heat =)

I use cpuminer-opt 3.4.11

There is a core i7 build that works well with those CPU's.

not a guaranteed profit, but mine many of the new coins that come out for a short period and then shut the wallet down, but keep it on the hard drive.  new coins, wallet, data and all, sit at less than 10-50 mb.  you can collect quite a few in short period and many newer coins can be mined for a couple days and produce 100,000 coins.  if any of these hit an exchange and hit even 150 sat, then you have made a nice small profit.

Winter is definitely the best season to mine any kind of cryptocurrency. You spend less effort and cost setting up cooling solutions, to keep your mining rig performing at optimum conditions. It is nice to put old PCs to good use, as you would be contributing to any CPU cryptocurrency's network security. I usually put up an old HP laptop I have lying around to mine CryptoNote coins like Bytecoin and Monero, as well as use the computers at college to do CPU mining in my spare time.  Roll Eyes

Yeah. Even though mining these coins are not profitable, they are still fun to mine and hold up for the long term, in case it spikes in price sometime in the future. Since CPU mining is accessible from within almost any PC or mobile device, it is very ideal to secure CPU mineable cryptocurrencies, while at the same time earning some spare cash along the way.

Good old PCs are very useful for CPU mining, in my own opinion, as you can put them up to good use to secure cryptocurrencies, as well as getting the most money out of it. Just my thoughts.  Grin
