number of cores for mining

  • Hi all,

    so im new to this but i have everything running smoothly. im cpu mining verium at the same time as burst mining my question is if im just hdd mining burst and not plotting how many cores do i need to leave open to mine the most efficiently? im on a entry level gaming laptop with a i76700hq im currently running 6 cores for verium and have the other two cores open for burst. can i safely run 7 cores verium and one burst or is 6 cores to much and i need to open more up for burst?

    thanks for the help

  • just run 1-2 less core than ur maximum cores, and the computer should run fine
