    Sorry to jumpo in but looking at mining Ombre.

    My CPU hash rate has been slashed, does Crypronight Heavy kill the CPU mining capability?

    Yea, CN heavy is intentionally brutal on CPUs to lessen the affects of botnets

    Ah OK, thanks for that. Thought there had been a big change...is it V7 the only CPU friendly one?

    V7 and lite/litev7 are all CPU friendly

    I've been getting 'Memory Alloc Failed' errors in XMR stak the last few days, anybody else? Coincidentally the problem appears to have started after the latest big Windows 10 update.

    You may need to change the page file size again, did you have to do this last time?

    Nope! I never changed anything, it simply worked from the off. I'm pretty sure mine is windows managed, is it best to set it manually at a specific size?

    edit: current settings

    Sys Managed
    Min- 16MB
    Rec- 1912MB
    Curr All- 8192MB

    Yeah I had to change mine again...off the top of my head I cant remember what I changed it to. A quick google of pagefile size and mining will help out though.

    Im assuming our hashing power is split MSR and SUP? Only 23 miners on MSR at the moment and 16 on SUP so wondering where everyone else went? SUP looks more profitable but i see from here that selling it can be a pain?

    Still on the MSR here. Finding some blocks still getting paid - can't really complain :) I'm not rocking massive hashes on ocuk pool but its doing well enough :) People will return when they realise the cool kids are still here :D

    Still on MSR and pleased with the returns and easy selling on the exchanges. Difficulty has been dropping as well which helps balance our lower combined hash rate.
