Rigel: How to Set Up and Download

Rigel is a popular cryptocurrency miner for Nvidia GPUs. It's available both on Linux and Windows.

Rigel has the following features:

- Temperature, clocks, fan monitoring

- Built-in GPU overclocking support with an option to apply different settings for ZIL

- Temperature limits and fan control


Rigel Supported Algorithms

Below is the list of algorithms supported by the Rigel mining software. Each algorithm indicates the program fee, which is usually just a few percent. Software developers use it for their product support, enhancement, and development of new features. The fee works in such a way that every hour a program mines for a short period of time (usually less than a minute) to the developer’s wallet.

Rigel Sample Settings (bat file)

The mining software launches through the command line in Linux and through the bat file in Windows. Below are sample bat files for each cryptocurrency that you can mine with Rigel. Make sure to replace YOUR_ADDRESS with your own wallet address, and RIG_ID with your own rig name. You can name it however you like, but the name must contain only Latin letters and symbols “-” and “_”. The wallet must correspond to the cryptocurrency you are mining.

You can find additional settings for the mining program at the end of the page. If you have problems setting up Rigel, feel free to ask for advice in our Telegram chat.

Rigel Extra Settings

Sometimes you need to take additional steps to set up a mining program. For example, you may want to disconnect a GPU or set the GPU operating temperature limit. We prepared the list of the most popular Rigel settings. To use a setting, add it to the standard launch line indicated above. As a rule, you can’t control GPU overclocking through the mining program settings. You can find a detailed guide on GPU overclocking in this article.

stratum+ssl:// is for mining through SSL. To use SSL, replace the standard pool address prefix stratum+tcp:// with stratum+ssl://. Please keep in mind that the pool address with SSL is usually different from the pool address without SSL. For example, stratum+ssl:// (2Miners Ravencoin pool for mining through SSL).

--devices Must be a comma-separated list of device indices. If not specified, all detected devices will be used. Devices are ordered by their PCI bus addresses. First GPU has index of 0. To display all available devices, use --list-devices. For example, GPUs in a rig of six graphics cards are numbered from 0 to 5. --devices 0,1,2,3,5 launches the mining software on all GPUs except for the fifth (indexed as 4).

--temp-limit Sets GPU thermal limits. Sets the temperatures of GPU core and memory upon reaching which the miner stops the overheated GPU and waits for it to cool down before resuming. Comma-separated list of values can be used to set values per-GPU. To skip a GPU, set the corresponding value to underscore `_`. Examples: --temp-limit tc[60-70] stops the GPU when its core temperature reaches 70 degrees celsius and resumes mining when it cools down to 60 degrees. --temp-limit tm[105-115] stops the GPU when its memory temperature reaches 115 degrees celsius and resumes mining when it cools down to 60 degrees. --temp-limit tc[60-70]tm[105-115] enables both core and memory temperature limits.

--log-file Enables logging output of the miner to the specified log file. If the log file already exists it will be appended. The miner uses log rotation keeping maximum of 5 log files, size limit is 5MB. Supports the following template parameters: {algo} - algorithm name, {ts} - timestamp in the format "yyyyMMdd_HHmmss" (note when using this option the miner will be creating a new log file every time it is launched).
