    I'm just trying this new sorftware, but I don't really get it. When you start it, it just stays there, doing nothing else than the rgb circle thingy...
    It didn't even use the GPU in the 2 hours that it was running and active.
    Maybe it's just me?

    It does not use my GPU and thus I can't get any rewards.

    UPDATE: Contacted chat support, said that the service is not live workd wide and it may not work on some areas... Doubt it, but ok.

    STILL NOT WORKING 48 HOURS AFTER RELEASE.

    It works only if you afk, i tested like 15 mins open but i was doing stuff on my pc, so it didn't add any silver to my amount. And the amount you get depends on your hardware power, the more powerful the GPU the more you get.

    I disabled the afk option and enabled it manually.
    I have a 1060 3G, I think it's powerful enough to do something.

    It was running for almost 2 hours, did nothing. I monitored the GPU usage with afterburner and it was on 2-7% all the time.

    It's still a mystery to me the mechanics of this miner, but it should work fine if left alone and idle for a couple of hours. For download and more info check this link .

    Will it damage our software and hardware though? That's the main question lol

    I don't think so, just look at the crypto miners, tons of GPUs mining 24/7 for months or even years and they still work fine.
    So some hours of full work won't harm it, in my opinion.

    Well, for now I won't be using this software if it can't prove that it's working properly. Now more than 2 hours idle, no GPU usage and no rewards.

    For me this is just a failure.

    It will not damage your software or hardware but it definitely will reduce your GPU lifetime. Depends on how Razer configured those miner to run.

    Yup, same here :/ It crashes with no message after "checking" and I don't earn anything :slightly_sad:

    Mine don't crash but it stays like this forever, without any change. Does not give rewards.

    Remember to compare your bills this month with previous month too! Hahaha

    I have the afk setting disabled and manually on.
    Can you see your GPU usage going up? Because mine stays idle.

    Looks like a 50% power increase. to about 200w.
    With the OC and stress test the rig hits about 240w

    but yes. probably not worth the cost benefit analysis.

    yes my GPU usage goes up.
    My GPU fans are set to eco at the moment and start to spin when the GPU hits 60C
