Is there any coin worth mining with an i7-7700?
I looked into Monero, but it doesn't seem profitable. I am mining SIGT with 2xGPU, but I thought I might aswell put my CPU to use when I'm not using it.

Cheers,

If your primary goal is profit, don't expect to make much, if anything (depending on your electricity rate and if you're willing to shorten the life of your hardware).

You could try NiceHash to run a variety of benchmarks to see about how well your i7 performs on various algorithms. The benchmarks are generally good guidelines, although NiceHash sometimes skips out on mining software that could perform better. (For example, EWBF's Zcash miner gave me significantly better results than whatever NiceHash has for CUDA devices mining Zcash.) I would definitely not recommend actually using NiceHash for what you're trying to do, though. Only using a CPU would mean you'd have quite a long time before you reached the minimum payout threshold that they require.

I'd stick with GPU mining, but it's your hardware.

Ok thanks for the advice. Perhaps I will just forget about it. Better to have a working CPU for a long time since the profits are so small.
GPU is better cuz they earn their cost back faster and is easier to replace.

Even in GPU nowadays there is a risk you will not ROI or make their cost faster as their performance has decreased a lot. Now the ROI for one card has gone from 2.5 -6 months was a few months ago to 11-13 months ROI so during this time the card may become faulty.

It is hard to make profit with low ROI now. But if you do not want to let you mining rig's CPU idle. Then you can use it to mine some potential coins to keep, which you think the coin had future.

Any small coin you thinking about? I don't really know the CPU coins available.

You have to search it yourself. It's not like there is recommendation for coin. What your goal is to look trough some coins that can be mined with CPU, chose one that you think will have price increase in future and mine it, sell later for profit. Otherwise you won't be seeing much money.

Exactly! We can't suggest you any potential coin to mine because any coin that you mine with CPU  won't make profit now. You have to decide which coin that you think the price will rise in future, then mine it and keep it.

Unless you have a die from a distant future, forget about it. Better leave your system flawless and cool.

Hi, if it's not for profit, perhaps you could try the smart mining feature of Minergate software ? It automatically chooses the best profitable coin.

My i7 6600K mines with Nicehash and returns ~0,2 EUR/day. I have reduced max CPU output to 70% in Win10 to keep it cool - it runs at 43C, but keep in mind that at the same time it also mines 7TB Burst plots with its IGPU, runs 4 StorJ nodes and ~20 apps for my work with documents.

I looked into Monero, but it doesn't seem profitable. I am mining SIGT with 2xGPU, but I thought I might aswell put my CPU to use when I'm not using it.

There are enough CPU-only coins. Try ZOI, MAGI, VRM, HEXX. You can check your possible profitability by using YIIMP Bench web-page. I think CPU-mining is a long term investment so choose a coin, mine it for 2-3 month and forget about it for 2-4 month and The profit can be good.

Thanks for your information, I know only MAGI cpu only coin (although it is no longer cpu only). I will check others later.

How can I mine these CPU coins? Never heard of them?

You can search for them. But most of the coins so called to be CPU-only are in a short time realized to be minable with other computing graphics cards with some tweaks. So, the CPU mining profit works only with the new coins.
Use your hardware for your choice of coin, trying new coins from your CPU. Who knows, what coin will be the next hit.

Monero Price is skyrocketing last few days. I have been mining it for 2 months with CPU's that are liquid cooled. So might have been worth it.
Minergate has ability to set CPU intensity so you can have the CPU mine at lesser intensity so it doesnt load CPU 100% all the time.
But really a long term thing if you believe in a coin like Monero which is showing promise

Always do your best, what you plant now, you will Mine Later.

I put my CPUs on IntenseCoin -- it's had quite a few hiccups but it's interesting & also very new so has upside potential.

i did plan doing this before using those cpu from my small computer shop but after seeing the result which is not profitable if electricity included
and the harmed that it will cause to my computers so i did forget about it dont know if someone can tell us here if they can still getting profits
with cpu mining.
