I like Slush Pool and BTCguild, but only you can figure out which pool is right for you.

Bitcoin-QT

Bitcoin-QT is a terrible pool if you have ASICs Tongue

If your a low end ASIC miner, like me, may as well solo mine on a machine that is running all the time anyway and forget about it for a couple years and see what happens.  Power consumption is low enough to not worry too much about power costs.  Many of us have a machine, or two, that needs to run 24/7 anyway.

That's what I'm thinking of doing anyway.

Low end ASIC would be okay.  The problem comes with trying to solo mine against Bitcoin-QT with a a lot of hash rate.  It doesn't keep up with high speeds (unless bfgminer has been updated to do its own extranonce-rolling when solo mining against Bitcoin-QT).

I jump around between BTCGuild and Bitminter trying to catch lucky streaks... sometimes it works sometimes... not so much.

Yep, I'm going to wait and see how things shake out before investing in anymore hardware.

The point .85 version of Bitcoin-QT actually works pretty good for solo with my BE's.  Now to see how long the BE's will actually last.

I've tried all the big pools - BTCGuild, EMC, Slush's, and P2Pool.  I always end up back with Eligius, though.  They're the most reliable for me.

P2Pool was OK, but variance is high due to a low hashrate, and you really need a decent machine to run it on.  Running P2Pool needed an i3 3.3GHz running 24/7, where just mining with Eligius means I can get away with running a tiny TPLink 703N micro-router running OpenWRT which uses less than 2W.

I use http://mmpool.bitparking.com/pool

It's little with just ~11 TH/s, but the winning margins with nmc and the other alts are nice.

Also if more people jump in, would be much better

I'm not sure what i mean either. If you find a block the 25 BTCs goe into the QT wallet you are mining with? how do you know it will work?

It depends how you define best. Everyone will have their own reasons.

I like in order:

1) Reliable
2) Cheap
3) Big (Smaller pools have more variance.)

So I use Bitminter.

Good Ddos protection.
1% fee
Current hash rate gets average 10 blocks a day.

Yes BTC Guild is bigger but they charge a 3% fee.
