    I recently downloaded this update and it told me to download gamma so I did so like softminer but for some reason, The CPU usage was 20%. I'm not sure if it is working properly right now so I want to know what the problem is or if it is supposed to be like this. I read in the thread: Official Razer support forum that I should submit my log data but I don't know where the data is and how to submit it. So, If I can get some help with this, that will be great! Thank you!

    I tried it out last night. I could see that it ran something that took maybe five minutes. I'm willing to guess that it's not meant to be running at full all the time. Maybe it has something to do with there being no scientific computation jobs on the gamma server that need to be done.

    When I used softminer, I got 50% CPU usage on average. It used a cryptocurrency mining program called xmr-stak and I think it gives us silver instead of cryptocurrency based on how good our computer's processing speed is. I think I will put in a request for higher CPU usage and more widespread around the cores.

    I will try turning on boost mode in Razer Cortex to boost up CPU usage and multiple core usage.

    Updated: I turned on boost mode and I got better CPU usage for gamma (3% to 11% boost) and it got more widespread around the cores. Still, softminer used about 60% usage.

    Gamma PC installation is a threat to Windows 10. I am starting to lose hope on zsilver mining.
    Even when I had RAZER softminer, the mining just stops without explanation.

    What does it threaten Windows 10 with? (My computer said nothing, but I'm not a suspicious person.)

    I've noticed that if I leave it running, when the screen turns off from being idle, Gamma stops running. I have the auto turn on option unchecked.

    Attached is the warning message, when running the Gamma setup exe
    Depending on the Windows 10 version, older versions might not reveal the message

    But I certainly don't want to run any exe files with that alert

    @HeyChew You are right, even if the PC is on idle state, the mining stops without explanation.

    Auto turn on feature I think it's for starting up the application during start up

    Oh I turned that warning screen off because I need to run programs without certificates all the time for my job.
    There is that option, but in addition, there is also the option to have it start running when there has been no mouse movement for five minutes. That's the option I have unchecked.

    My option is to make or let Microsoft to decide whether Gamma is safe to use.
    I have bypassed those SmartScreen protection before, and the results were nasty and regretful

    @HeyChew keep us posted on your mining progress

    Both the Softminer and Gamma kept my CPU usage low at 5-10%, Gamma is a GPU miner so it should not use a lot of CPU. I did notice that my GPU usage was around 20% with Softminer and now it is 40% with Gamma. I was earning around 3 silver per half hour with Softminer. I start the Gamma miner but it shuts off after a short period of time. I don't think I have earned anything with Gamma yet to try and compare.

    Hear our voice!!
    Please give us optimistic results!!!
    GAMMA! I hope you find peace treaty with Microsoft
    Let us mine without facing halts! and do not overuse our GPU/CPU

    If you agree say AMEN!

    It will run if you have the automatic start stop option checked.
    I have a i9-9900KF and a GTX 1060. It uses all 8 CPU cores at 100% (but not the Hyper Threaded cores so it's only using about 65% of the CPU.) and the GPU runs at about 50%. This is all according to Task Manager.

    I let it run for a little over an hour and got 0 Silver.

    I let it run for 3 more hours. Still 0 Silver. Maybe I'll try it again in a month or two.

    Just earned 100 for playing daily games. Even that is too slow.
