I would just need someone to tell me the syntax to use and such. I want 2 settings. One where I can use it during the day in backround, and one all out when I sleep.
Windows Cgminer compilation can be downloaded from the author's website.
cgminer -u worker_name -p worker_pass -o http://pool_address:pool_port -k diablo -v 1 -w 256 -g 1 -I d --auto-fan --auto-gpu --gpu-engine 700-925 --gpu-memdiff -150 --temp-target 80

, and pool_port
are pretty self-explanatory, right?-k diablo
selects DiabloD3 mining kernel which works well with GCN cards-v 1
tells the kernel to use single-width vectors-w 256
sets the work size to 256. Both this and vector width are fine-tuning parameters-g 1
sets the number of mining threads per gpu to 1-I d
sets the intensity to dynamic; this should allow you to work without desktop lag-I 10
sets the intensity to 10; this should boost the hash rate nicely at the cost of introducing significant lag --gpu-engine 925
sets the GPU clocks to 925 MHz. You can easily overclock the card by specifying a higher value. If you're using the factory-overclocked version of 7970 DCII use 1000 here.
These are only a few of the available options, enough to get you going. Everything is very well documented in the README
Mind you, there is a much better way of managing your cgminer configuration - you can create a single config file which will take care of all the settings.
In cgminer's window you need to press s
(settings), then w
(write config) to create a configuration file populated with the current config.
Alternatively, you could write if by hand, of course.
It isn't important what CPU you have, you won't be using it anyway.
