Hi guys,
This may seem like a strange request but I'm looking for the faster CPU and GPU miners for mac OSX.I noticed that RPC,the only GUI miner I know of,is incredibly inefficient compared to other CPU miners on OSX (ok I know CPU is worthless for BTC mining but I mine other currencies with the CPU which I trade in for BTC). Whats the best CPU miner for OSX that can be setup easily (installs and runs easily)?

Next is the GPU side of things.Is there a GPU miner for OSX that is the fastest and can be easily setup?
The ability to use performance enhancing flags or OC'ing within the app would be a bonus (as I found out the GPU on MBP mid 2010 model is heavily underclocked.stock speed should be about ~500MHz not 370MHZ like now.I found this out on a site that specs hardware for MBPs)

I know that mining on an MBP is next to pointless in the current climate but as I use free elec at work (and VPN to mask my activities) and mine alternative currencies as well as BTC it is worth while and is a net gain for me.85W of power use from an MBP is nothing compared to a heavily kitted out desktop with 3 Hd6990 cards (where the substantial power use could get you into trouble at work more easily)

Thank you

There isn't that much of a "multiple" trading other currencies for bitcoin.  I believe at most you can make ~20% more mining other coins to trade for bitcoins.

If a CPU is useless for bitcoins it is useless for alternative currencies also.
