Hello Miners and welcome to x11

X11 is the new revolutionary, that you will totally fall in love with when you try it out.

X11 offers around 50% less Watt usage compared to Scrypt. Except from cutting your electricity bill in half it runs around 30% cooler which is great when summer is just around the corner.
There is a lot of other perks to x11 but nevermind that at the moment and let us get you up and running.

First of you want to sign up on a pool (most likely found on the first page in Bitcointalk.org/cointhatyouwanttomine . After registration is done you want to edit your account and click on ’My Workers’. Here you can add new workers which means an instance where you point your rig to. Arguably the most common worker name is ’1’ and password ’x’ which will give you
’–u Username.1 –p x’ in the config later on. You would be best of creating one worker for each rig.
For mining x11 you want to use the SPH SGminer. From 4.0.0 version there has been some updates and this is the latest 4.1.0 SGH miner that will give you an extra 100-300Kh/s by default compared to the 4.0 version;

https://mega.co.nz/#!6ExQEIZR!skZC-GTW2ESXdue4R7DwF0CfbkzhoFq3qhLRkfbX_WI

For more versions check: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=475795.0;all (Official SPH-miner Bitcointalk thread)

(There might be some detection from your virus program but everything in here is harmless and any threats should simply be ignored.)

As you extract the folder to the location of your choice you want to open a .txt document and start editing it right away.
Example for 280x cards your input would look something like this;

setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
sgminer.exe --kernel darkcoin -o stratum+tcp://pooladress:port -u Username.Workername -p Workerpassword --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 --lookup-gap 2 --worksize 256 -g 2 --gpu-engine 1160 --gpu-memclock 1450

Save the .txt file as ”name.bat” (note that this file has to be in the SGminer folder but it is perfectly fine to add a shortcut to your desktop if wanted. Now simlpy launch the the .bat file and enjoy!
When you start to fiddle with the config it mostly comes down to your coreclock/memclock settings.

A lot of people who paste their config settings from Scrypt-configs might experience a lot of HW errors. Simply turn down Memclock until you find it stable. So what you want to do is raise the coreclock to closer to 1160 for most 280x cards. You should be able to start around 1050 and work your way up increasing 25Hz. If it crashes I would suggest you do not lower the coreclock and instead try to lower the memclock even further and see if it runs without crashing – if not, turn down coreclock.

Compared to scrypt, x11 has increased hashrate so what you want to aim for is;
290x ~ 2.7Mh/s
290 ~ 2.5Mh/s
280x/7970 ~ 2.3Mh/s
270x/7950 ~ 1.4Mh/s
What might get you confused is the low number of accepts. This is normal and your WU should be around 0.015 / Mh/s.

Example settings:

6970 1,6 Mh/s -I 20 -w 256 --lookup-gap 2 --thread-concurrency 8192 --gpu-powertune 20 --gpu-engine 970 --gpu-memclock 1400
7950 / 270x @ 1.358mh/s - I 20 w 256 tc 32765 eng 1150 mem 1425
7970 / 280x 2.2Mh /s --thread-concurrency 8192 -I 13 --lookup-gap 2 --worksize 256 -g 2 --gpu-engine 1160 --gpu-memclock 1450
290 2.5 Mh/s  –I 20 -g 1 --shaders 2048 2 --gpu-engine 1000-1100 --gpu-memclock 1250-1300
290x 2.8 Mh/s - I 21 w 256 tc 32765 2 --gpu-engine 1050 --gpu-memclock 1500

Good luck miners!

proceed with caution with new programs like this, recommend opening in a sandbox first, try sandboxie or something similar.

it is the 22March release of SGHminer. It is rock solid Smiley

Same version of AVG on all my (4) rigs only one gave me notice.

Here's a link for the scan.

https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/a0386dc5c496200421beb3bd7764b1af45276d600c07cffcf9ae126d092d9ff8/analysis/

And as mentioned before feel free to use any SGminer v 4+.

How about instead of another fake algorithm that uses "less energy" and generates "less heat" lets work on the false positive in the virus warnings. Call me stupid but I'm almost 100% sure its a rootkit and if it's not those false positive warnings are telling you and everyone else that you are opening your computer to more vulnerabilities.

We need legit programming we don't need more hex edited shit with a rootkit binded to minerd ty men.

Clearly this post is not about downloading this SPHminer version. Scan any miner and you will find the same files as in this one.

This is just the one I am using and so many others too and it's the latest update that supports most coins.

On the other I hand don't like to googleing for Miners.  Scan your miner on that site and post me back with your findings, I bet you be surprised Smiley

I agree though Smiley

..you forgot to use the MAX font size Roll Eyes

2 clicks, and about 1 minute of time is enough to find out that this is from the official thread of sgminer on bitcointalk.. sorry mate, but i don't think this community needs posts like this

your examples for exspecially the 7950 is very wrong

you state you should aim for 1.4 mhash but they can all do 1.75 easy

you state the 7950 and 270x should get the same ammount of mh/s ?

my 270's non x do 1.3 mhash, and all my 7950's do 1.75 mhash

tc 8192 g2 i13 w256 gpu 1070 mem 1250 , this is for the 7950
