Add ability to tweak CPU and GPU usage
Bitcoin Miner has been discontinued. Please see https://www.groupfabric.com/pool/ for shutdown information.

based on my results and watching system task manager I only using my gpu, not of my cpu. I am considering adding a second gpu ( older than current to see if will increase the sat I can make since I barley gotten 2500 in a week.

tim can you explain to me how,I have intel I7 6700 and geforce 1080
and max speed is 360 KH/s
how can I increase more gpu speed,I already using ASUS gpu tweak 2

The only time the Bitcoin Miner should try to use your camera is if you click the scan button in the Payout Address screen (so the app can scan in a payout address QR code).
If it is at any other time, we recommend immediately denying any camera permission dialogs.
Likely it’s because a bad advertisement on Microsoft’s advertising network – we have a thread going with Microsoft right now over why their ad network is delivering ads that are requesting this permission.
Another option is to deny the camera permission to Bitcoin Miner in the Windows 10 Settings –
1. Start Menu
2. Search for Settings
3. Find A Setting -> Camera Privacy Settings
4. Bitcoin Miner -> Off
This will disable the QR code scanning functionality in the Payout Address screen, but is probably the best workaround until we can get a fix from Microsoft.
Mining performance was also partially degraded over the past week due to connectivity issues, but we implemented several fixes over the weekend that should boost overall yields. Even at low hash rates users should be able to mine 300-500 Satoshis/day at the moment.
Well it only pays cents on a week.... now you get 0.1 satoshis on difficult 1 to 10, but it pays. It used to pay 0.5 satoshis on difficult 1 a few months back :/
So no it's not a scam BUT there is no way this method is profitable if you are using your machine just to mine... the app will feed you lots of ads and you have to "tweak" the cores and priority affinity to get a balanced resources usage out of your machine and still be able to use it as a workstation. But because it still pays, and if you do want to use "spare resources" it is a nice idea... so far the only complaint is the lack of in app option to configure how much resources it uses.
Short answer: It pays so i don't see any scam BUT its not profitable as a standalone miner.
im farming at 603 kh/s with the 1080 ti and i5processor. can it go faster
1: noup .. tried everything i know.
2: Yes. i get about 5k to 6k a week BUT i have an HTPC running 24/7 plus when i'm on my workstation i have 3 VM's running with the app (it actually has a lot less impact on CPU usage this way for me)
3: no idea on how to help you...

1. Does anyone know if the custom opt will allow me mine faster? If so what so I need to use that feature?
2. Is anyone achieving 5,000 Satoshis a week if so how?
3. I am doing the max and that helped up how do I get more?

I like to have an option to adjust the speed of gpu mines is overheatin when i use maximum and gpu use so tweakin down the speed on the gpu would help me alot
With my devices I get about 17000 satoshis, no matter if I use several i7 CPUs. it does not come much more together. with which hardware can I create 1 BTC per month or how many computers are needed?
I would like to see a option to combine cpu and gpu power
the abillity also to let it work while i am on the settings menu

The comment about the preference of GPU vs CPU makes sense. In fact when my GPU is not overclocked then roughly 90% of the CPU is used. When I increase the overclocking both GPU and GPU memory the CPU drops to 20% as described. The one thing I see different is that the KH/s drops or is not as high when the GPU is processing and the difficulty of the hash is much lower than when the CPU is running higher.
GPU - 20 - 30 Difficulty
CPU - 50 - 275 Diffculty
Is that expected behavior?
i think adding GPU support to enable load configuration would help people fine tune and find a good optimized settings i can run my system overclocked and give this program realtime priority and still not have any noticeable change in hash rate oc specs : 1060 SSC 2.1 ghz , memclock 4ghz, intel skylake 6600K 4.6ghz , cache 4.4 ghz the good news i guess is that my system doesnt slow down either but still
my laptop overheats after 5 minutes if I use my gtx 880m .. it doesn't have good fan controls ..so I disable it , thus forcing btc miner to use the internal intel gpu ..which is twice as fast as using the CPU .. it would be better if we could detect / select the graphics card to use in the preferences ;)
Most definately,I'm using Minergate which has this function.Yes Please
I dont get it, the CUDA cores could do 600 MH/s there is no realy hardware support here.
for tweaking gpu's individually, you can use Auros Tweaking Engine, available here: https://www.gigabyte.com/Support/Utility/Graphics-Card. It doesn't matter if you have a gigabyte gpu or not. You can also use Asus Tweaking Tool. With these tools you can overclock your gpu as well as make adjustment to fan speed to correspond with the gpu temperature to cool it down. just don't know if they work with radeon's. but i think they do.
I rather like this idea. I turn on Maximum with my gpu selected and my cpu temp jumps up from 37 celcius to 69 celcius. 128 kh/s isn't bad, but I'd like to not tax my gpu quite so hard xD A slide bar between the minimum (power saving) and maximum (maximum, duh) wouldn't he a bad idea, and shouldn't be that hard to implement.
