    Using spare server CPU cycles for mining.

    As I mentioned earlier, I pay a flat rate for space & electricity. So while it is not free, it does not cost more than I am already paying.

    Using spare server CPU cycles for mining.

    I have 3 servers with 2 each of Intel Xeon E5-2678v3, for example.

    Using spare server CPU cycles for mining.

    If the labor means not watching 2 or 3 episodes of "The Bachelorette" what have I lost? I am paying a fixed price for space and electricity, I have at least 12 CPUs with at least 12 cores each. Over time if my other business does better, I will add more CPUs. This is in no way meant to be a...

    I am sure someone out there is doing this, but I couldn't find any good solid advice. I have a small rig with one GPU and I am trying to find other GPUs at a price which make sense. For fun I decided to install HiceHash on my desktop PC (I7-9700 w/24GB) which is running all the time anyway and...

    RX 570 performance reality check.

    I had already done all of that. In fiddling about, I forced NiceHash to re-benchmark everything, and Kawpow ended up benchmarking badly. NiceHash is now using one of the Daggerhashimoto algo's and I am getting over 26 MH/s. I did get a blue screen of death "Video TDR failure," however I...

    RX 570 performance reality check.

    I am new, and have begun mining with an RX570 8gb. Everything I read says I should get 20+ MH/s. However when I look at what NiceHash says I am getting it shows ~12 MH/s. When I look at the actual mining screen it seems to show ~8.7 MH/s. Since I am new, I do not know whether I am comparing...
