In addition to QuickMiner NiceHash and NBMiner, which already have full LHR unlocking for Nvidia low-hash rate (LHR) GPUs, a third option is now available. T-Rex Miner comes with 100% LHR unlocking for Ethash and AutoLykos2 crypto algorithms on Nvidia graphics cards with LHR v1 and v2, only the latest GPUs with LHR v3 – RTX 3080 12GB and RTX 3050 are not supported yet. Note that the full LHR unlocker on T-Rex requires 512.xx driver version on Windows and 510.xx on Linux to work properly. Also make sure that T-Rex Miner is running with administrator privileges for the unlock to work.
Changes T-Rex 0.26.1
- (ethash, autolykos2) LHR 100% unlock (except 3080 12GB and 3050) LHR unlock requires 512.xx driver version in Windows, and 510.xx driver version in Linux
How to configure the T-Rex Miner
- Right click on the file, select Edit.
- A text document will open and you will see a list of program commands. The -u key is responsible for the digital wallet address. It needs to be replaced.
- However, for those who are interested in the full customization of the program, let’s look at the contents of the batch file in more detail.
- t-rex — the name of the program that will be launched using the .bat file
- -a bcd — the name of the mining algorithm. The list of available algorithms is listed above
- -o stratum+tcp://eu.icemining.ca —specify the pool address. The construction -o stratum+tcp:// is required
- :8433 — put a colon after the pool address and specify the pool port
- -u 1Go7d7C1EYQzmgbsDbTSdtW2g5H5G3gBCo — after the -u key, specify the address of your digital wallet
- -p c=BCD — specify the token of the mined coin. This is necessary so that the pool understands which coin we want to mine
- -i 20 — set the intensity of the program
To run T-Rex with the config.txt file, type in the console: t-rex -c config.txt. Use the config_example file as a starting point to create your own configuration. If the parameter is set in the configuration file and also through the cmd line, the latter takes precedence, for example: t-rex -c config.txt -w. You can also use environment variables: just put% YOUR_ENV_VAR% anywhere in your config file and it will be automatically replaced by the value of YOUR_ENV_VAR at runtime.
Run the T-Rex Miner
So, we set up a program for mining Bitcoid Diamond. Other coins on other algorithms are set up similarly. Run our BATK by double-clicking and see what the miner’s console window says:
- Program version
- Installed driver version
- List of video cards available for mining
- Pool address that you specified in the batch file
- Coin token or pool password. Pools rarely use a password, so in 90% of cases you need to specify a token
- The program sets up a connection to the pool
- Authorization on the pool
- Intensity is set to 20. We set it in the batch file with the -i parameter
- The current block and network difficulty of the mined coin
- The total hashrate of your farm.
- The hashrate of one video card
- The temperature of the video card
- Power consumption
- Fan blade speed
- Efficiency Kh/Watt
This completes the setup of the program, but we’ll move on to look at all the possible commands.

Watchdog is designed to monitor the state of the miner and restart T-Rex in case it crashes or hangs for some reason. Besides, Watchdog can additionally perform automatic updates if a newer version is available. We recommend to use watchdog to avoid downtime when mining and to make sure that your GPUs are busy 24/7. If you really need to disable the watchdog, you can do so with the -no-watchdog parameter.
To protect the miner from reverse engineering attacks, binaries are packaged using third-party software that distorts the original machine code. As a result, some anti-virus engines may detect certain signatures in the executable file, similar to those of real viruses protected by the same packer. In any case, it is recommended not to use cryptocurrency miners on computers where you store your sensitive data (wallets, passwords, etc.).
To maximize the hash rate, our software uses all available GPU resources, so it’s important that you check your overclocking settings before you start mining. Our general recommendation is to start with the default GPU settings (no overclocking, default power limitation), and then after making sure that it is stable, slowly increase the overclocking to find the “golden mean” where the miner works best and still does not work.

The Ethereum token, often known as EthereumPOW, ETHW or IOU, has undergone a split. Due to the hard fork, the currency first appeared on September 15, 2022. As some miners refused to accept the upgrade to PoS, the Ethereum network split and the ETHPoW coin emerged with a precarious future (IOU).
The cost of graphics processing units (GPUs) has risen significantly as a result of the semiconductor shortage caused by the 2020-2021 pandemic. Videocards are increasingly purchased by miners on the secondary market. Used GPUs are 30-50% cheaper than brand new ones. However, there is a chance of getting a faulty gadget that has almost used up all its resources. For this reason, you must learn how to evaluate the mining and performance of a video card. A processor that you buy on your own without first evaluating it can cost you money. The card goes through a thorough testing process that includes verification, document analysis, BIOS firmware analysis, and stress testing using specialized software.
Users are experiencing problems with configuring the GPU when mining cryptocurrencies. To configure video cards, software specially designed for mining is used. You have to connect many applications at the same time if the GPU farm consists of GPUs from different manufacturers (GIGABYTE Xtreme, AORUS Graphics Engine, AMD OverDrive, WattTool and others). As a result, MSI Afterburner is a widely used software among miners. The software allows you to set basic GPU settings.
