!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FOR ALL YOU NVIDIA MINERS OUT THERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we are ACTIVELY working on nvidia support. You can follow PiMP development more closely in our Livechat, #PiMP, by subscribing to our Assistant PiMP e-Newsletter on getpimp.org, following us on Twitter and Facebook, etc.
You can also see pimp2.0-nvidia rig(s) on the PiMP farm as we are creating and working on them, at any given time, https://miner.farm/farmer/pimp4
Early 2017 we should have a pimp-2.0-nvidia release for you.
It’s been a great year. We’ve had lots of parties here at the office (and lots of drinking, too!), but now it’s time to clear our heads, dust off our desks and get back into the game.
Today, we’ve come forward with our first big content update to PiMP. It includes the latest versions of:
Optiminer’s Zcash GPU Miner
Claymore’s Zcash GPU Miner
Nicehash’s Zcash CPU Miner
To update, simply stop your miners and open up a terminal window. In the terminal, type pimpup, followed by the number of the miner you wish to update.
Restart your miners, and that’s it. Now you’re ahead of the game and your rigs are PiMPed out with the latest updates!
If you run into a problem, or need some assistance, or even a friendly chat, find us on the freenode IRC server at #PiMP.
The PiMP Team
So far everything has been running smooth - but they keep releasing updates to miners! Thankfully, you’ve got the PiMPUp Update Platform. This lets you get the latest miners sooner - and get a huge head start above the competiton.
Thanks to PiMPs coming for live chat support, we’ve pushed several great fixes for reliability with the miner.farm agent. We’ve got temperature, fan, and clock control for GPUs - and started on some of the framework for new features coming this year.
There’s also a major Optiminer Zcash update for stability - version 1.3.1, and you can auto-upgrade to it.
First, be sure your miners are stopped with the pimp --stop command.
Run pimpup. It will guide you through PiMP updates, if there are any.
Choose Optiminer from the menu. Should get a big green Success after that.
Run edit zcash-opti.pcfg to change your configuration. FLAGS= should NOT contain the --experimental-kernel flag, this was needed for 1.2, but will break v1.3.1 and newer. You should remove that if it is in there. This is near the bottom of the file.
There’s also been lots of bug fixing and improvements to miner.farm, so it is even easier to see your rigs at a glance. Visit the PiMP farm at https://miner.farm/farmer/PiMP/farmstatus for a look!
Now, for the numbers!
The new Optiminer on your PiMP OS is more stable and gives a nice bump in Zcash hashrate. In the picture below, 2 r360 cards went from 80 sol/s with Optiminer 1.2, to 100 sol/s in Optiminer 1.3.1.
Don’t worry PiMPs - we’ve got much more in store for you, and we’re just getting warmed up for 2017. It’s gonna’ be a great year for cryptocurrencies, and we’re glad to help bring mining to all!
~ The PiMP Family
Totally forgot to mention we also have a great new landing page for the zcash miners

Hey there PiMP. I bought a license and tried it last night. Unfortunately I couldn't get it to work. I have a rig with 5 R9 290's on it and was trying to use sgminer for XMR. It kept telling me that "there is already a miner on port 4028".
What I failed to remember until today is that I have a Baikal ASIC mining X11 on the same network and they just happen to use sgminer on port 4028! So it was my own fault but it drove me F%#(ing crazy at the time.
I will try it again soon but currently EthOS running sgminer-gm-xmr or claymore-zcash is working fine.
Thank you for your interest in PiMP! This is likely a simple error. The rig will auto-start miner ID 1 by default on boot after about 60 seconds. Your 290's should work well with XMR as we have had customers mining with 290's from November on. Come grab some live support and we can help you check out the easiest way to manage your mining rig.
https://getpimp.org/help#irc is a link to our web-based irc client or you can use "livechat" command on a PIMP Rig. Looking forward to helping you out!
PiMP Platform Developer
Lets first start off this post with mentioning that the price per license is 30 usd per rig, this has gone in effect on the april 3 2017.
The reason for the raised price is that the development of this OS and the Monitoring system had some major backend upgrades and this in turn made the 3 platforms currently in place to be much more stable and reliable. And all of your tools continue to get improvements and updates!
Our test/support team now has some new tools like a full q&a section and customer bug tracking to help you get the most out of your rig and into the crypto mining instead of constantly fixing your rig.
With this i would like to say thanks to all the contributors , helping hands and awesome feedback from the community that make this project a success.
We from pimp like to give a special thanks to rverstar (russian translation ) , jadaking (france translation),seh (german translation) , n1ce (spanish translation) and dbct and his family in helping out with the dutch translation.
We will be implementing them soon.
If you see anything wrong or out of place in the translations please let us know we always try to offer you the best.
As you all know we love the creativity and spirit of mining!! So we are happy to say that there is lots more great mining content to come from our friends such as:
Yassien ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtsW5CD7utT9-0AI8ktoqxw ), Buriedone Blockchain (known from http://www.buriedone.com/ and https://www.youtube.com/user/BuriedOne ) made a PROMOVID https://youtu.be/kb6R5t3jee4 for you all to see and chilledgamer for letting us know they are going to make some awesome videos for you all to make the PiMP/MinerFarm expirience the best crypto mining experience you will ever have. .
New easier checkout process! Just buy a PIMP OS from getpimp.org and then, all 3 versions of pimp are now in your account under the download tab once you bought a license.(one license is needed per rigg)
We done this to give you the freedom to choose what flavor is best for you .
All miners included are updated to the latest known at this point.
The updates in pimpup have now been separated for Nvidia and AMD miners
Minerfarm has seen a lot of enhancements this month that will improve your experience and all round make it slim and fast.
Coming Soon: better pool wide controls example ‘switch all to this pool’
And this is not all on the back end of miner farm there have been many code improvements for stability and reliability, hosting upgraded for improved performance.
2017 is off for a great start with more and more tools and features are implanted and released.
The feedback we had from our community has been greatly appreciated and we hope that we provide and keep providing you with the best easiest mining solution .
PiMP is still looking for people that want to help make this project a great success and asks you to take a look here https://getpimp.org/help/about/
personally i would also like to thank our test team and the devs for their quick testing and making all the adjustments so that your downtime will stay a thing of the past
Yassien and Heliox have been so kind in sharing a couple of rigg pictures for you to see get idea’s off and give you some creative vibes , more can be found here https://getpimp.org/pimps-corner/pimp-rigs/ or just to show you that it does not matter if you are a bigg or a small miner every miner counts
Wow it has been a interesting month again and we see some pimps really pushing the envelope in tweaking and tuning their cards and using minerfarm to see their results.
This is a great thing to see as the enthusiastic home /hobby miners have a great time with our product we are getting great feedback.
A miner came in the other day and asked for assistance. We provided what he needed and it turned out we got some great feedback so we had adjusted the guide and workshop content accordingly.
Another great thing is we see more and more miners using minerfarm and we have given our mobile friendly monitoring platform a great facelift.
Yes we have one.
As time goes on we from pimp sometimes leave some hidden easter eggs here and prize questions here and there all over the site.
Mr evilmrkipling18 congratulations with your 1 month free upgrade to farmer status on minerfarm.
This gives him more control of his miner or his farm from anywhere he has a web connection.
A quick reminder to check the guides, FAQ and videos for new information. Also a special thank you to all of the miners asking questions on the FAQ! We have put a ton of time into making the guides and videos and we have a lot more planned for you.
We have been excited to watch the #PiMP Live chat IRC channel grow! More and more miners have been coming in to discuss and help one another so come join us. We have a wide ranging Testing/Support team and are connected to other mining communities too!
This pimpup brings us the command line pimp --add , pimp --delete and the awesome pimp --test and pimp --debug he screen wrapper for easy troubleshooting.
We are also continually updating and working on the confs to make them easier to understand and manage.
Keep your eye out for the pimpup or pimp news message on your screen when you login! This means our dev and test team have added something good! Usually an update of a miner or an update to pimp, we always try to get you the best as fast as we can so you can earn more hash!
The helpme was bolstered as well to make it easier for you, your fellow miners, and the support team to determine what is wrong and help you with the info you need to get back to mining as fast as possible.
Now that we have a super stable and reliable piece of software and service and worked hard on the back end our devs have started working on features to give you more.
As we are doing this to give you the best features be sure to don’t miss out and stay ahead of the wave.
We made a place for all miners who want more , well here it is you get more with pimp workshop https://getpimp.org/pimps-corner/workshop/ .
In the workshop miners like you that want more or get an edge can request an article or make a article to help or get the info they need for their ultimate rigg.
Be sure to check it out.
Want to pimp out your personal webpage , now you can with https://getpimp.org/pimps-corner/op-pimp-the-world/
PiMP Dev team has been hard at work testing hash and reliability using new linux kernel customization, drivers, and platform changes. We are proud to say we have had support from some of the biggest names in mining, and thanks to them we are going to be offering major improvements to PIMP OS. We are about to put PiMP 2.1-amdgpu into final testing phase so you can get the most hash for your new cards!!! Stay tuned!!!

Minerfarm and PiMP OS are doing great since the launch of the 1.8 back in october 2016 , since then we have more than 600 active users and ever growing. We continue to sell several copies of PiMP OS a day and have had very little support needed: We are extremely grateful for all of our Testers and also our “PiMP Power users” who have worked tirelessly on QA to be sure that you get the best tools we can give.
If that is not enough we still try to stay at our roots with 1 on 1 support via irc and the videos and guides.
So don’t miss out on our ever evolving programs and services and the hidden easter eggs we sometimes plant. Crypto is freedom and crypto is fun. Enjoy!
We have too much news for you to wait until June and we want to get you the latest mining tools as soon as we can, so here’s BREAKING MAY NEWS!!!
First off… thanks for all your feedback and support that you give to this project.
This has not gone unnoticed and let me be the first to tell you about this awesome new edition to the pimp family line of products.
We have made great improvements to the foundation but stuck to the roots of stability and testing everything thoroughly to make sure that you have a good mining experience with profits.
On that note we would like to welcome a new testing/support team member garretthaae, he has already been hard at work helping the team get new features working smooth.
Another Special thank you to our volunteer translators who have been helping us put the community pages on the site.

We value your feedback here to make our product better for you https://goo.gl/forms/VSuwIGUhjGXE2vid2 please fill this one out completely anonymous to directly help making the product better.
Can't wait to try out the new versions @pimpdbct !! I'm loving miner.farm btw as it makes managing my AMD and Nvidia farm so much easier. A big plus for PIMP vs others in my book as any other of the available solutions only offer AMD or Nvidia support but not both. Anything that makes my farm life easier I'm all for it lol...
@pimpdbct I'd like to try your product however first I need to know if it includes MSI z170a M5 and M7 network drivers - I've ran into issues with operating systems (particularly Ubuntu 14 and lower, even an old copy of W10) that did not have network drivers for this motherboard. I ended up having to either use Ubuntu 16+ or download a newer release of W10.
I'll be purchasing this immediately if it is supported, please let me know!
First of all thanks for your interrest in our product
We have seen users with that type of mobo using pimp therefor i am sure your rigg will work on the pimp OS.
We try to keep it as update as we possibly can so that the miner spends less time trouble shooting and more time mining and enjoying the crypto world.
I for one would be looking forward to see you in our pub chat on irc.
we got great pimps helping ,chatting discussing with pimps and non pimps.
hope this answers your question
with kind regards,
Awesome, good to hear. A couple more questions:
Does it have options for controlling GPU fan speed (specifically for nvidia GPU's)?
Is EWBF a supported miner?
Yes you're able to control fan speeds and ewbf is supported. I have 3 Nvidia rigs that are a mix of 1070s and 1080ti's and use a bash script to change my core/mem/powermizer/fan speeds upon boot utilizing Nvidia-Settings CLI commands. You can also use the desktop GUI to edit Nvidia-Settings that way
I run EWBFs miner on all 3 rigs. Hope that helps!
Hello PiMPs and non PiMPs
PiMP this month has seen a lot of new people as well as the usual regulars that always seem to know what is going on in crypto!
Thanks to your honest feedback, we went back to the basics. We have been optimizing, slimming down, and bug fixing to get the stability PIMP is known for.
Miner.farm has continued to grow in every way. The PIMP farm, the free accounts and subscribers have continued to suggest great ideas and improvements and the service keeps getting better thanks to you!
On top of that it is a awesome way to view control and manage your rigs from 1 rig up to a big farm
This brings me to the best stuff the getPiMP family has put up for all of you to help you stay ahead.
On top of this all we had the breaking may new release for you all and are getting great feedback on that aswell.
-the new config are in full effect ( please run pimpup to get them the old configs will go out of date and be unusable).
-new cli commands like --add , --delete and --debug are working as a easyway and more stable then we could ever imagine.
-Special thanks to the help of our contributor iceman we have been able to make the images smaller and more secure.
-Special thanks to the help of our friends from SilentArmy we now have a special kernel for the 2.1 version of pimp as well as some other optimizations.
PIMP 2.1 AMD and NVIDIA Release:
RX 5xx series Support
New AMDGPU 17.10 Drivers
New Linux 4.11 Kernel

Many small bug fixes
pimp 1.9 and 2.0
New, simplified and easier to understand Managed Mining Profiles and config files
More information provided during key validations
1.9 rc16b released this is the proper rc16 release
The over 640 minerfarm users tell us that the system has a firm and solid foundation.
With more features coming out this year we are also working hard on expanding the way we present and view miner.farm
we have been testing the error reporting and the mailing so that you get the best we can put out for you.
Testing/Support Team Corner:
Special thank you to thesmokingman and SEH for extensive nvidia development work. Thesmokingman has gone above and beyond what we ask of PIMP Testing/Support Team and we are very thankful.
SPOTLIGHT ON QUALITY: % of Copies sold that required support:
We have been working on the nvidia overclocking scripts overclocking support for amdgpu coming soon.
pimp --test this is a awesome way to see if your setup works like a well pimped out machine. It will show you the start up miner command that it uses, starts the miner and then attaches to the miner screen automatically. This allows you to see more information about what the miner is doing on your rig.
Why do we check sgminer -n in the helpme? You can get right to the point. If the miner can see the GPU, we are pretty much good to go. Beyond this, is just editing the conf file, add miner, start miner. Problems? Probably your conf settings, pool or network issue, or hung GPU.
DBCT question of the month:
Because we value you as a miner we are constantly working on new things but we could use your help.
What feature are you missing in PiMP ?
mail me at email@example.com
To wrap it up for this month:
Crypto mining is getting more traction as it gains more support from the public every day.
With BTC , ETH, ZEC and others reaching for the moon many people turn to the cryptoworld as a great way of making money and having fun and a great time with tweaking and getting the most out of there system.
As the first original professional mining OS we are proud and excited about this.
We encourage new miners to try PiMP and start mining and using crypto
Stay tuned for more stories and case studies from our friends and supporters and even our competitors, as we dig into what makes a successful mining operation, so we can all grow and learn together with PIMP.
In a firework moment the pimp dev team made a great breakthrough at the last moment for all you nvidia users , the EWBF now shows almost all the info you wanted in minerfarm.
This is not the end of the feature and pimp and minerfarm will keep working on the fans aswell this is still a very significant breakthrough.
Any chance you could walk through the bash script? I've got an nvidia rig running 2.0 but haven't been able to figure out how to modify the card settings. The are mining zec stock with EWBF.
