    How didn't it work ?
    Did you pass the benchmark test or does the program run but nothing happens ?

    For those of you experiencing some issues, here are a few tips:

    SoftMiner will only work its magic and mine fully when your PC is on idle. This means you should not be using your computer and running SoftMiner in the background. You're essentially nerfing its ability to do what it does by taking away processes.

    Do not skip the benchmarking when prompted to. It may cause your SoftMiner to not work properly preventing you from earning Silver and waste your cpu cycles.

    Lastly, you can always submit feedback and logs through the application itself by clicking on your profile image in SoftMiner and selecting Feedback.

    Happy mining!

    Is it open worldwide? T&C seem to be silent about that.

    The FAQ seems to confirm that it's available worldwide.
    • Which countries is Razer SoftMiner available in?
      Great news! This program is available to download and utilize globally.

    @Dekades how can we force the benchmark to run? Maybe delete a config file or reg key. I don't recall it ever running on my system. And it had run a week with 0 change in silver.

    As it is for any machine, using it at full power for a long time may reduce a bit its durability.
    But it will really be felt if you're doing it 24/7.
    And that's quite a debate because some videos like this one say that it's not true.

    In my own case, i use afterburner, a MSI software (even if my GPU is from another builder), to set the temp limit and the frenquencies a bit lower. This way it makes way less noise and it puts less strain on my card.

    Try to uninstall Softminer with a program like Iobit uninstaller and delete residual files with it.
    Then reinstall it, it solved this problem for me.

    Does not appear to work... In my Log after reinstall I do see this:

    09:01:33.028 PM ***** Start Benchmarking *****
    09:01:33.037 PM ***** Benchmark Progress: 0 / 0 *****
    09:01:35.058 PM ***** Start Mining *****
    09:01:35.068 PM Check for optimal algorithm.
    09:01:35.500 PM [WARN]:No suitable miner algo combo found. Stop.
    But the other log file does show I've been logged in, guess that puts me in the contest?

    i see, you try to mitigate the effects if any by lowering the performance the miner can use.
    maybe i'll just try this on my spare rig using an old gtx970.
