The Ethereum price has skyrocketed last few weeks and with the rise of the Ethereum (ether) comes the enlargened profitability for GPU mining Equipments. I will explain te this blog postbode how to mine Ethereum profitable with a Nvidia GTX 970 (ASUS STRIX). This posts will concentrate mainly on Ethereum mining (ether) using Genoil modified cuda eth-miner.Mining system
- Windows 7 professional
- ASUS STRIX GTX 970
- 16 GB DDR3 memmory
Setting up the miner
Wij will be using Genoils forked Eth-miner. The windows binary can be downloaded on the cryptomining-blog.com webstek or directly here (this might not be the latest version).
- Unzip the files to a folder
- Create a batch verkeersopstopping (with the config below you need to modify) and place it ter the folder with the other files (I use start-mining.bat
The batch opstopping has the following code:
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100ethminer.exe -U -S eu1.ethermine.org:4444 -FS us1.ethermine.org:4444 -O 0xED533352387767bAb02310c6134F80AB95d6973e.kunst
Switch the Ether adressering to your own Ethereum address (0xED533352387767bAb02310c6134F80AB95d6973e = my mining address)
Last stepRun the start-mining.bat opstopping and verify if it looks like this.
Improving the hashspeed from ±15-17 MH/s to 20-23 MH/s
To increase your Ethereum mining speed even further you can waterput your GPU te the P0 state using NVSMI. Simply use the following code ter your batch to automatically set your GPU ter P0 state.
Check for permissions>,nul Two>,&,1 “%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe” “%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system”REM –>,

ps. the very first part of the code is required to run the script spil an admin on boot (on my system)
Thanks to cryptomining-blog.com for the detailed guide.
7 comments on &ldquo, Ethereum mining on GTX 970 (23 MH/s) &rdquo,
can you paste you .bat verkeersopstopping so wij can see how it should be? i’m mining with my gtx970 with optimize for computing on and overclocking 250mhz but i’m getting 15-16 mh/S
want to improve this number but didn’t truly understand P0 state thing
Where can I find my balance? Very fresh to this got it working with my wallet address, just like to see how many eth cents and such I have or does it just automaat pay at a certain balance?
