Hello,

sorry i am newbie in mining coins.

I am running a small system with 2 x RX480 4GB Cards, 128 GB SSD, Intel G4400 CPU...  and have some questions.

1. is it better to use claymore or ethminer, what is the difference?
2. if i run the 2 cards in separated computers the fan speed is max 60% if both cards in one systems with 2 extra case fans, the gpu fan of the first card runs hat 95-99% is this normal?
3. at first i used ethminer with coinotron but i can't find how to setup coinotron with claymore, so now i use claymore with minergate but it is not possible to mine ETH with? which pool is the Best?
4. where i can see which coin is today the best to mine?


sorry for my newbie questions, i tryed to find an answer with the search funktion but there are so many posts...

thanks for your help

1. The difference is claymore's is faster and has a 1% devfee. Claymore is the one I prefer.
2. More then likely it's heat related. Fan speed will ramp-up the hotter it gets. Also you can manually control fan speed with software or bios. Claymore's miner allows you to do this with the -tt command.
3. Coinotron is fine: ethdcrminer64.exe -epool coinotron.com:3344 -ewal username.workername -epsw x -esm 2 -mode 1 -allpools 1

1. I would suggest Claymore, it's stable, has build in watchdog and allows you to dualmine (ETH+SC).
I totally agree with tanoury when it comes to 2, 3 and 4

Fan speed 90-95% is too much if you don't need it i mean if the card is not high in temp, i prefer to control the fan and gpu temp from an external software like afterburner or so. You can stable your temp. between 40-50 i think this is good i had this temp. On 60%fan with hot running pascal algo.

If you're mining i reccomend an open rig, a case has very little ventilation and relies heavily on fans

Just bump up the fan speeds. Go to like 70-80% and stay there. Looks like you are in some hot area. Currently with my RX 470 (Nitro+) I mine and temperatures are about 54°C at 28% fan speed with 4 other cards. But my, well if you can call it a case, is open rig have good ventilation.
