How Can Possible FTC Coin Mining With Only CPU, Without any Graphic Card?
use a program called GUIMINER to setup up a proxy then download minard and point it to that proxy made with GUIMINER that is pointed at Give me coins. hope this helps.
minerd has stratum support. instructions are on the getting started page of the website.
use the Windows program cpuminer. Very easy to set up . https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55038.0
Hi,Using cpuminer (minerd) with Intel I5-4670 at full speed (4 cores at 4.0GHZ)) , I only got 70KH/s using 350W. Using one Radeon HD7950 without OC on old motherboard, I got 640KH/s using 350W.CPU mining is not a very good choice
Depends on how you figure.
It's about ROI for sure, but if you have a machine and can spare some cycles, it's a good exercise and potentially profitable to experiment with something frutiful like FTC mining. That said, it's much more cost effective to simply buy outright.
of course it's all about ROI. But in my case, my "mini rig" has cost 1 radeon + 1 old motherbord + 1 usb key (for smos os). I've paid 400€ ( 540$), and I got 640KH/sI've paid 400€ for my I5 + his motherboard + hhd a few month ago. I got 70KH/spower use is similar, cost of harware is similar. So GPU minig is better in my case.
