As long as you keep a clean pc free from dust and plenty of air flow everything should be fine. I got my laptop mining, problem is the case holds the heat. I got a house fan on it and been ok since June. Again keep it clean as well, if your handy take it apart every few months and clean heat sinks with alcohol, especially homes with smokers. Also new thermal grease could go a long way. I use this stuff. www.innovationcooling.com A little expensive but work very well.
Could you please tell me the cpu you are using? cuz i'm running an I5 3570k and with 3 threads and am only getting 17khs so im guessing something is wrong... cuz thats certainly not enough to get 15 to 20 netcoins...
I'm running exactly the same CPU as you :-) But I run with 99 threads which actually just means that the CPU performance is running at 100% capacity all the time.. but the mining hash rate just drops if I'm using another program.. so either you can let keep mining at 100% with about 40khash or do something else and let it drop accordingly.. Go into task manager and see the performance tab.. if you're using 3 threads and the CPU is running at around 40% - 50% constantly, then you know why it's only showing 17khs.. ;D also.. you'll have to wait a short while for it to raise the intake of coins.. It might show +1.x in the first hour, but just let it run on 99 threads for a few hours and see if it isn't running on 40khash with aproxx 7.x coins transfer at a time :-)
the thread count is how many cores you have so if your a 4 core, set it to 4 threads and it will use 100% of your 4 cores. setting it to 99 would make a lot of small threads and in general slow down your hash rates. Also adjust your scantime down a bit if you get a lot of rejects, hope this helps
AMD 6300 6 core.I'm mining at ypool with 3 cores takes about a week for 2 xpm i guess.Alot of the mining i do is not what it is worth today but long term.I beileve xpm will grow so since 3 cores dont slow nothing down surfing and gpu mining i just let it run.Funny thing is my son has a 4 core and it shows it's mining but never got a share.His is 32 bit win 7 and mine is 64 bit win 7
