I’ve got a bunch of root servers with i7-2600k CPUs which come with free electricity. I want to let them run some zcash miner, just for the sake of fun. I know, the hashrate can not be compared to GPUs anymore, but still a few more Sol/s is nice.
I was browsing the forums and Google for a while now, but I can’t find any good details on CPU miners.
Which ones are available right now that perform quite good?
My servers are running on Linux btw.
So I downloaded the latest windows builld of nheqiminer here. After extracting it I run the benchmark and after it starts the program just crashes. I am on an i7-2600k only. Any know what the problem is?
Could you advise me, when building a rig like your 6 rx 470’s with Z97 Gaming 5, if I can’t afford to get Intel Core i7-4790K for simultaneous cpu mining (while trying to get something relevant for future), would it be worth $180 to get Intel Core i5-4690K or should i just save the money and get a Intel Pentium G3258 or Celeron G1840.
Thanks for all your info!
