    You have to apply certain serx commands. Search for my recent posts you will find a zip file with everything in it. Edot bat file with your wallet and rig name and start hashing.

    you can use this ready made package, all you have to do is unzip, edit bat file to inser your wallet and rig name and start mining. the .bat file has setx commands in it that will fix your hash rate from 0.

    @lee363 You get an error - "GPU can't allocate the DAG in a single chunk". If your card have only 1GB RAM you cannot mine eth, but if it's 2GB version, you should add these commands at the beginning of your .bat file:
    setx GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0 setx GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100 setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1 setx GPU_SINGLE_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

    @lee363 It seems that the Minergate miner has a nice GUI for their pool
    https://minergate.com/downloads/gui

    I heard that NiceHash has a bundled miner for their pool too

    There was a question about how to check your balance but it did not get answered. So I ask again, does anybody know how to check ethereum balance ?

    I think i got an answer from a user here. So if you are using a pool then you go to the pools website and enter your wallet address on the website. It currently doesn't show anything except the hash rate, but I hope it's only due to the fact that i've only mined for an hour.

    EDIT: Disregard my last, everything should be showing up on the pools website in about an hour so, something might be wrong.

    I am going to get new mining software and try a fresh start.

    Guys I am trying to set up the following rig:

    Asrock H81 pro btc
    16 gb ram DDR3
    6 x XFX RX480 8gb
    6 x PCI 1x 16
    SSD external memory
    Intel Pentium G3260
    1200 w PSU
    WIN 10 64 bit

    I would like to install the latest version of Claymore's dual miner on it, the problem is that the PC can not even run the 6 GPU's all the same time apparently, without anything installed on it yet, but Windows (I am helping which is setting it up and we are about 2000 miles far from each other, so this doesn't help).

    Now we have managed to start 5 out 6 GPUs, so probably the last one is having some riser problem, but still when trying to install the drivers (latest version of crimson) at 50% the pc shut down and restart.

    What I have done so far is:

    - lowering pci to GEN1 in BIOS
    - remove any possible interfering software
    - visrtual mem. to 16 gb
    - pci connected to both GPUs and mobo

    Is there any specific setup to do on win10 before installing the GPUs?
    Anything that needs to be uninstalled, etc.?

    Or maybe in the BIOS?

    Please help
