A guide to mine ESPERS with a CPU or GPU

CPU:
Download a miner from
http://cryptomining-blog.com/7805-new-c ... m-support/

Extract the files to a folder on your desktop, and locate the RUN-AMD or RUN-INTEL file, (CHOOSE WICH CPU YOU HAVE)
Right click the chosen file, and edit it
Change after: -o stratum+tcp://stratum.minertopia.org:3747 -u YOUR ESPERS WALLET ADDRESS -p c=ESP -t AMOUNT OF THREADS YOU WANT TO USE
If you want to utilize your whole CPU, remove the -t part.
Run the .bat file you chosen (based on wich brand CPU you have)
Enjoy, you are now mining!

GPU (NVIDIA)

Download a miner from
https://github.com/tpruvot/ccminer/releases
Extract the files to a folder on your desktop
Choose one .bat file, right click it and hit edit.
it should look like this

ccminer-x64 -a HMQ1725 -o stratum+tcp://stratum.minertopia.org:3747 -u YOUR ESPERS WALLET ADDRESS -p c=ESP
pause

Save and exit, and run the .bat file
Enjoy, you are now mining with GPU

AMD:
Make the .bat like this:

set GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0

set GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100

set GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

sgminer.exe --kernel hmq1725 -o stratum+tcp://stratum.minertopia.org:3747 -u yourESPadresshere -p c=ESP

So yes, TUMPPI is right here. For AMD cards you just need to download Pallas' SGMiner with HMQ1725 and run a set of commands that would look more or less like:

set GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0

set GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100

set GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

sgminer.exe --kernel hmq1725 -o stratum+tcp://hmq1725.mine.zpool.ca:3747 -u yourESPadresshere -p c=ESP


Or for minertopia:


set GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0

set GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100

set GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

sgminer.exe --kernel hmq1725 -o stratum+tcp://stratum.minertopia.org:3747 -u yourESPadresshere -p c=ESP


Or you can combine both pools having one as main and the other as backup:


set GPU_FORCE_64BIT_PTR 0

set GPU_MAX_HEAP_SIZE 100

set GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1

set GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100

sgminer.exe --kernel hmq1725 -o stratum+tcp://hmq1725.mine.zpool.ca:3747 -u yourESPadresshere -p c=ESP -o stratum+tcp://stratum.minertopia.org:3747 -u yourESPadresshere -p c=ESP

Once you have it up and running, start playing with your intensity to fine tune and extract more hash from your GPU. In general, any R9 series AMD can go up to I=17 without troubles. Beyond that, you will get a lot of heath, power draw and computer instability. Most recent AMD you can mine HMQ1725 with would be an R9 390.

If you can find a watercooled 295x2 for a reasonable price, I encourage you to grab it. Two GPUs in the same card plus efficiencies at memory access level make those cards fantastic performers. Also twin watercooled 390s but those run expensive.
R9 Nanos are interesting and efficient powerwise but still expensive.
Also good old 280Xs are a good choice. Contained power draw, same hashing power than most 290s and best part of it: CHEAP!

Is this profitable to mine on nvidia? I have a 980

Yeah its profitable imo, the POW on espers still needs a fine-tune though wich is on the way. also thanks @mineru, i'll add those to the OP

great guide! Thanks. I've been mining Espers on my nvidia using ccminer basically this whole month and I have def. gotten a lot of coins. Not sure if AMD has faster/bigger hashes but yeah you can def. mine easily with ccminer, and I don't even have a ~great~ card (well, it's a GeForce 1080 [non Ti edition]).

I've found I can keep the intensity on 16 and use my computer normally (not gaming) during the day and then crank it up to 19 overnight. I might be killing my card but I've been mining with it for like 3 years and haven't noticed any degrade. But I also I have a beefed-up heatsink/fan system (no liquid cooling or anything that special though).

Mining the hmq1725 algo with ccminer on 17 intensity gives me ~750 kHs/s. Any AMD miners care to say what they're getting with comparable specs?

I have found you can run higher intensities with NVidias no problem. Most compatible AMDs don't like it over 18. I guess your 1080 is safe at 20. My own 1080ti is at 20 all the time while using the computer. Concerning performance NVidias are usually above AMDs at this algo running the last ccminer(and I was the AMD fanboy LOL). Not sure now of the exact figures. I will check.

OK. Just checked: 7500KH/s for a Gigabyte NVidia 1080ti X at i=20. micdvd was getting 8000 from his EVGAs.
