NiceHash QuickMiner 0.5.4.0: Download with full NVIDIA LHR unlock


The latest version of NiceHash QuickMiner (Excavator) is the first mining software to fully unlock Nvidia LHR graphics cards for Ethereum (ETH) mining. Please note that currently all Nvidia RTX 30 series GPUs with LHR v1 and v2 should be supported and unlocked to full hashrate for Ethereum mining, but LHR v3 GPUs, namely RTX 3050 and RTX 3080 12GB, are still not supported by unlocking. You need to download and use QuickMiner v0.5.4.0 RC (release candidate) or a newer version to be able to take advantage of the full LHR unlock. NiceHash recommends using 472.xx or the latest versions of NVIDIA GPU drivers with the miner for best results, older video drivers may cause problems with unlocking or proper operation of the miner. Also keep in mind that NiceHash QuickMiner only works on Windows, and you can only use it on the NiceHash mining platform!

Why should you use the NiceHash QuickMiner instead of the NiceHash Miner?

NiceHash Miner relies on third-party plugins and miners to work fully. In most cases, these are programs of unverified and unknown origin. The real names of the authors of these programs are unknown, or there is no company behind the software. We do not know why the developers of these programs keep their identity a secret. There could be a variety of reasons. Most likely, the reasons are not to hurt the miners, because they all charge the developer for using their miner. But we can’t be completely sure that they aren’t ever going to put anything harmful in their programs. Blindly trusting them would be a big mistake. That’s why if you want to use NiceHash Miner, you have to agree to it, confirm and acknowledge it, and if these unknown developers really do something stupid one day, NiceHash can’t be held responsible.

This means that if you use your computer for serious business, have important information or even coins or money on it, it is better NOT to use third-party miners of unknown origin. Fortunately, NiceHash has created its own miner in the past called Excavator. The code execution is completely in-house developed, and NiceHash can guarantee that there is nothing harmful inside. Another fortunate factor is that the speeds Excavator achieves in daggerhashimoto (Ethereum mining) are completely comparable to other devfee miners, and when you also count in devfee, Excavator can be in most cases even more profitable than third party miners.

But using Excavator on your own is not that easy – you need to configure the command files and get everything ready for your machine to work properly. That’s why we created another end-user product called NiceHash QuickMiner, which automatically does all the complicated and complex setup, so you just push buttons and don’t worry about too deep technical stuff. Since all of the Excavator plus wrapper code (QuickMiner) is created by NiceHash, there is no risk associated with adding anything harmful. NiceHash is a public service, run by a well-known EU – Slovenian company – H-BIT doo, which means that there are real people behind the software. It’s much easier to trust software of known origin because you know that if something malicious has been added to it, there are people who can be held accountable for it.

Now you know the difference between NiceHash Miner and NiceHash QuickMiner. In the end, the choice is yours. You have to ask yourself: do I want my computer to be fully protected when I install a cryptocurrency miner? If the answer is YES, you should install the NiceHash QuickMiner. If you don’t have sensitive information on your computer, if you really don’t care about any information on your computer being exposed one day, or if you don’t care that your computer can be used as a zombie client in botnet day or insulted for any illegal activity, you can use NiceHash Miner which installs all those risky third party miners of unknown origin. As a general rule, if you have a fully dedicated mining rig that is only used to mine cryptocurrency and nothing else, and you properly isolate it in your network, you should be fine with NiceHash Miner and third-party miners. In any other case, we suggest you use NiceHash QuickMiner. If you have AMD cards and want full security for your PC, we suggest using an open source ethminer or lolMiner, which is the only devfee miner that is not completely anonymous.

Supported equipment:

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1000 series <6 GB of GDDRAM,
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2000 series <6 GB of GDDRAM,
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series <6 GB of GDDRAM,
  • Intel CPUs AVX2,
  • AMD CPUs AVX2.

NiceHash QuickMiner contains the latest version of Excavator, complete with:

  • watchdog (NiceHashQuickMiner.exe),
  • autostart service (nhqmservice.exe),
  • OCTune and
  • (optional) XMRig CPU Miner (xmrig.exe).

Main features

  • It ONLY uses GPU mining excavator  and XMRig for CPU mining. Excavator is a proprietary 100% malware-free miner, and  XMRig is open source CPU miner . Several other open source C# libraries are used. Code running under NiceHash QuickMiner is either developed by NiceHash or sourced from public repositories, which means it is 100% safe and you don’t have to worry about exposing your PC’s sensitive data or getting infected with malware. NiceHash QuickMiner (in the future) will NEVER use any closed source software, software of unknown or unverified origin.
  • No tests, you start mining immediately.
  • No third-party tools for GPU overclocking is needed. NiceHash QuickMiner has its own powerful and fast overclocking and fan speed tuning tool called OCTune. Find the best overclock easily and quickly like never before with OCTune.
  • Watchdog, which will take care of restarting the mining process in case of failure.
  • Windows autostart methods.
  • No developer fees. With the PPS (pay-per-share) payout scheme, there is only a NiceHash fee of 2%.
  • Powerful and reliable one-click optimization for GTX 1660 and RTX series cards.

Disadvantages. Why is it better to use NiceHash Miner or NiceHash OS?

  • NiceHash QuickMiner mines only daggerhashimoto (ethereum). There is no algorithm switching here, so there is no chance of any additional payout above ethereum, which can fall out from time to time. The amount of loss depends on your GPU model, but currently it can only be a few percent.

    Multiple transfers of the transition of Ethereum to a new algorithm, which gave reason to believe that the event would never take place, still did not prevent The Merge from taking place. As a result, the possibility of mining ether disappeared. But its fork appeared, EthereumPoW, to which the community is currently very skeptical and even suspicious.
