Hey PiMPs!


It’s been a great year. We’ve had lots of parties here at the office (and lots of drinking, too!), but now it’s time to clear our heads, dust off our desks and get back into the game.


Today, we’ve come forward with our first big content update to PiMP. It includes the latest versions of:

  • Optiminer’s Zcash GPU Miner

  • Claymore’s Zcash GPU Miner

  • Nicehash’s Zcash CPU Miner


To update, simply stop your miners and open up a terminal window. In the terminal, type pimpup, followed by the number of the miner you wish to update.




Restart your miners, and that’s it. Now you’re ahead of the game and your rigs are PiMPed out with the latest updates!


If you run into a problem, or need some assistance, or even a friendly chat, find us on the freenode IRC server at #PiMP.


Happy mining!


  • The PiMP Team

Hello PiMPs!


So far everything has been running smooth - but they keep releasing updates to miners! Thankfully, you’ve got the PiMPUp Update Platform. This lets you get the latest miners sooner - and get a huge head start above the competiton.


Thanks to PiMPs coming for live chat support, we’ve pushed several great fixes for reliability with the miner.farm agent. We’ve got temperature, fan, and clock control for GPUs - and started on some of the framework for new features coming this year.


There’s also a major Optiminer Zcash update for stability - version 1.3.1, and you can auto-upgrade to it.


  1. First, be sure your miners are stopped with the pimp --stop command.

  2. Run pimpup. It will guide you through PiMP updates, if there are any.

  3. Choose Optiminer from the menu. Should get a big green Success after that.

  4. Run edit zcash-opti.pcfg to change your configuration. FLAGS= should NOT contain the --experimental-kernel flag, this was needed for 1.2, but will break v1.3.1 and newer. You should remove that if it is in there. This is near the bottom of the file.


There’s also been lots of bug fixing and improvements to miner.farm, so it is even easier to see your rigs at a glance. Visit the PiMP farm at https://miner.farm/farmer/PiMP/farmstatus for a look!


Now, for the numbers!


The new Optiminer on your PiMP OS is more stable and gives a nice bump in Zcash hashrate. In the picture below, 2 r360 cards went from 80 sol/s with Optiminer 1.2, to 100 sol/s in Optiminer 1.3.1.


Don’t worry PiMPs - we’ve got much more in store for you, and we’re just getting warmed up for 2017. It’s gonna’ be a great year for cryptocurrencies, and we’re glad to help bring mining to all!

Hello Pimpz


Lets first start off this post with mentioning that the price per license is 30 usd per rig, this has gone in effect on the april 3 2017.

The reason for the raised price is that the development of this OS and the Monitoring system had some major backend upgrades and this in turn made the 3 platforms currently in place to be much more stable and reliable. And all of your tools continue to get improvements and updates!


Our test/support team now has some new tools like a full q&a section and customer bug tracking to help you get the most out of your rig and into the crypto mining instead of constantly fixing your rig.



With this i would like to say thanks to all the contributors ,  helping hands and awesome feedback from the community  that make this project a success.

We from pimp like to give a special thanks to rverstar (russian translation ) , jadaking (france translation),seh (german translation) , n1ce (spanish translation) and dbct and his family in helping out with the dutch translation.

We will be implementing them soon.

If you see anything wrong or out of place in the translations please let us know we always try to offer you the best.


As you all know we love the creativity and spirit of mining!! So we are happy to say that there is lots more great mining content to come from our friends such as:

Yassien ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtsW5CD7utT9-0AI8ktoqxw ), Buriedone Blockchain (known from http://www.buriedone.com/ and https://www.youtube.com/user/BuriedOne ) made a PROMOVID https://youtu.be/kb6R5t3jee4 for you all to see   and chilledgamer for letting us know they are going to make some awesome videos for you all to make the PiMP/MinerFarm expirience the best crypto mining experience you will ever have. .




New easier checkout process! Just buy a PIMP OS from getpimp.org and then, all 3 versions of pimp are now in your account under the download tab once you bought a license.(one license is needed per rigg)

We done this to give you the freedom to choose what flavor is best for you .

All miners included are updated to the latest known at this point.

The updates in pimpup have now been separated for Nvidia and AMD miners




Minerfarm has seen a lot of enhancements this month that will improve your experience and all round make it slim and fast.

Some of the front end enhancements that are made are:

      Email alerts for Agent Down!!!

Better support for sub Mh/s hash rates.

Updated Pool View and Alert View styled like FarmView now,

Coming Soon: better pool wide controls example ‘switch all to this pool’


And this is not all on the back end of miner farm there have been many code improvements for stability and reliability, hosting upgraded for improved performance.




2017 is off for a great start with more and more tools and features are implanted and released.

The feedback we had from our community has been greatly appreciated and we hope that we provide and keep providing you with the best easiest mining solution .

PiMP is still looking for people that want to help make this project a great success and asks you to take a look here https://getpimp.org/help/about/


personally i would also like to thank our test team and the devs for their quick testing and making all the adjustments so that your downtime will stay a thing of the past


Yassien and Heliox have been so kind in sharing a couple of rigg pictures for you to see get idea’s off and give you some creative vibes , more can be found here https://getpimp.org/pimps-corner/pimp-rigs/ or just to show you that it does not matter if you are a bigg or a small miner every miner counts

Hello Pimps  c74XYDXGmH0sxUS6ZlNuNlepAesjwSwAcCIH3VvN5q6L92zOrUa_ctWArJTo-Jr_Jn_v-JI_K36z0hGwfd341MQuhXQBd9jxTbsWQR6qm4JbcBZT9wTwi24RjhShc3zfzKYZ5_z8


Wow it has been a interesting month again and we see some pimps really pushing the envelope in tweaking and tuning their cards and using minerfarm to see their results.

This is a great thing to see as the enthusiastic home  /hobby miners have a great time with our product we are getting great feedback.

A miner came in the other day and asked for assistance. We provided what he needed and it turned out we got some great feedback so we had adjusted the guide and workshop content accordingly.

Another great thing is we see more and more miners using minerfarm and we have given our mobile friendly monitoring platform a great facelift.




Yes we have one.

As time goes on we from pimp sometimes leave some hidden easter eggs here and prize questions here and there all over the site.

Mr evilmrkipling18 congratulations with your 1 month free upgrade to farmer status on minerfarm.

This gives him more control of his miner or his farm from anywhere he has a web connection.


A quick reminder to check the guides, FAQ and videos for new information. Also a special thank you to all of the miners asking questions on the FAQ! We have put a ton of time into making the guides and videos and we have a lot more planned for you.

We have been excited to watch the #PiMP Live chat IRC channel grow! More and more miners have been coming in to discuss and help one another so come join us. We have a wide ranging Testing/Support team and are connected to other mining communities too!



PIMP: dugvcRf00t_u8bChtqRRyHqw4PcLBKXgzR6pQYXMgcXwiQjuWaZNeh8ZqJAmBTM5_08Enciy-tFRS25eWxNJRPPYk-825QZ_mW86H9djZ-KGlkGyhHI2E4eek2V-8_Jc-foW-Z2Z


This pimpup brings us the command line pimp --add , pimp --delete and the awesome pimp --test and pimp --debug he screen wrapper for easy troubleshooting.


We are also continually updating and working on the confs to make them easier to understand and manage.


Keep your eye out  for the pimpup or pimp news message on your screen when you login! This means our dev and test team have added something good! Usually an update of a miner or an update to pimp, we always try to get you the best as fast as we can so you can earn more hash!


The helpme was bolstered as well to make it easier for you, your fellow miners, and the support team to determine what is wrong and help you with the info you need to get back to mining as fast as possible.


MINERFARM: 0XqfG6eFuLlkrGmTqXIge4QXmxC4PCxSrv8dKsUhWOkjC9CVWLYHxR5mCjC5tDI1xA48FXwnoRxcVWjScCs10F8s9DIa1O_xQGT4pG_eEybyPBsmfLZSDxn4Gbg7xuhuppHf0joJ


Now that we have a super stable and reliable piece of software and service and worked hard on the back end our devs have started working on features to give you more.

As we are doing this to give you the best features be sure to don’t miss out and stay ahead of the wave.




We made a place for all miners who want more , well here it is you get more with pimp workshop https://getpimp.org/pimps-corner/workshop/ .

In the workshop miners like you that want more or get an edge  can request an article or make a article to help or get the info they need for their ultimate rigg.

Be sure to check it out.

Want to pimp out your personal webpage , now you can with https://getpimp.org/pimps-corner/op-pimp-the-world/  




PiMP Dev team has been hard at work testing hash and reliability using new linux kernel customization, drivers, and platform changes. We are proud to say we have had support from some of the biggest names in mining, and thanks to them we are going to be offering major improvements to PIMP OS.  We are about to put PiMP 2.1-amdgpu into final testing phase so you can get the most hash for your new cards!!! Stay tuned!!!



WE NEED YOU!!! pimp/minerfarm:


We have a great team and great community but there is always room for you to help us get even better.

We hope that you can spread a positive word and buying and subscribing to pimp and minerfarm are very great things to support us, there is also another way we also need to fill out some spaces to make the pimp team bigger please look at https://getpimp.org/help/about/ to see how you can help make this product even better.

We are trying to make a cool vid with pics and vids, in order to do this we call upon our great community to help us out with content of pics and just a short movie that we may use for this any content you want to share please mail it to [email protected]





Minerfarm and PiMP OS are doing great since the launch of the 1.8 back in october 2016 , since then we have more than 600 active users and ever growing. We continue to sell several copies of PiMP OS a day and have had very little support needed: We are extremely grateful for all of our Testers and also our “PiMP Power users” who have worked tirelessly on QA to be sure that you get the best tools we can give.


If that is not enough we still try to stay at our roots with 1 on 1 support via irc and the videos and guides.

So don’t miss out on our ever evolving programs and services and the hidden easter eggs we sometimes plant. Crypto is freedom and crypto is fun. Enjoy!

Hello PiMPs and non PiMPs


PiMP this month has seen a lot of new people as well as the usual regulars that always seem to know what is going on in crypto!

Thanks to your honest feedback, we went back to the basics. We have been optimizing, slimming down, and bug fixing to get the stability PIMP is known for.


Miner.farm has continued to grow in every way. The PIMP farm, the free accounts and subscribers have continued to suggest great ideas and improvements and the service keeps getting better thanks to you!

On top of that it is a awesome way to view control and manage your rigs from 1 rig up to a big farm

This brings me to the best stuff the getPiMP family has put up for all of you to help you stay ahead.

On top of this all we had the breaking may new release for you all and are getting great feedback on that aswell.







PiMP general:

-the new config are in full effect ( please run pimpup to get them the old configs will go out of date and be unusable).

-new cli commands like --add , --delete and --debug are working as a easyway and more stable then we could ever imagine.

-Special thanks to the help of our contributor iceman we have been able to make the images smaller and more secure.

-Special thanks to the help of our friends from SilentArmy we now have a special kernel for the 2.1 version of pimp as well as some other optimizations.



PIMP 2.1 AMD and NVIDIA Release:

  • RX 5xx series Support

  • New AMDGPU 17.10 Drivers

  • New Linux 4.11 Kernel

  • Optimized by Silentarmy

  • New, simplified and easier to understand Managed Mining Profiles and config files

  • More information provided during key validations

  • Created by a Professional Testing and Support Team, the first of its kind in crypto platform development.

  • Many small bug fixes



pimp 1.9 and 2.0

  • New, simplified and easier to understand Managed Mining Profiles and config files

  • More information provided during key validations

  • 1.9 rc16b released this is the proper rc16 release








The over 640 minerfarm users tell us that the system has a firm and solid foundation.

With more features coming out this year we are also working hard on expanding the way we present and view miner.farm

we have been testing the error reporting and the mailing so that you get the best we can put out for you.



Testing/Support Team Corner:


New Testers:



Special thank you to thesmokingman and SEH for extensive nvidia development work. Thesmokingman has gone above and beyond what we ask of PIMP Testing/Support Team and we are very thankful.


SPOTLIGHT ON QUALITY: % of Copies sold that required support:

JAN: 1%

FEB: <1%

MAR: 3.5%

APR: 2%

MAY: 4%




Dev Teaser:


We have been working on the nvidia overclocking scripts overclocking support for amdgpu coming soon.  


Feature Spotlight:


pimp --test this is a awesome way to see if your setup works like a well pimped out machine. It will show you the start up miner command that it uses, starts the miner and then attaches to the miner screen automatically. This allows you to see more information about what the miner is doing on your rig.


Quick Tips:


Why do we check sgminer -n in the helpme? You can get right to the point. If the miner can see the GPU, we are pretty much good to go. Beyond this, is just editing the conf file, add miner, start miner. Problems? Probably your conf settings, pool or network issue, or hung GPU.


DBCT question of the month:


Because we value you as a miner we are constantly working on new things but we could use your help.

What feature are you missing in PiMP ?

mail me at [email protected]



To wrap it up for this month:


Crypto mining is getting more traction as it gains more support from the public every day.

With BTC , ETH, ZEC and others reaching for the moon many people turn to the cryptoworld as a great way of making money and having fun and a great time with tweaking and getting the most out of there system.


As the first original professional mining OS we are proud and excited about this.

We encourage new miners to try PiMP and start mining and using crypto


Stay tuned for more stories and case studies from our friends and supporters and even our competitors, as we dig into what makes a successful mining operation, so we can all grow and learn together with PIMP.


Break Break

In a firework moment the pimp dev team made a great breakthrough at the last moment  for all you nvidia users , the EWBF now shows almost all the info you wanted in minerfarm.

This is not the end of the feature and pimp and minerfarm  will keep working on the fans aswell this is still a very significant breakthrough.

PiMP 2.0 is now retired: In other words, you can now have a 390 and a RX-470 in your PiMP 2.3-amd rig. You can also have 7xxx and 2xx series cards in the same rig but they may underperform on the amdgpu driver.


TO DOWNLOAD: Go to your https://getpimp.org/home-landing/my-downloads page.

PIMP OS for NVIDIA: nothing major here, just incorporated all of the previous bug fixes, features, optimizations and updates since v2.2.2-nvidia (v2.2-rc2-nvidia)

Crypto Mining and PiMP have had ROCKET growth in 2017:

In 2017 so far, PiMP received several major version releases: 1.9/2.0 were released as a set supporting legacy and modern AMD GPUs (See: Which PiMP is right for you), followed by 2.1 released supporting NVidia. During this time we saw record numbers in growth, as the preferred mining platform to support nvidia users for Linux! In the meantime we had some major growth in NVidia mining needs and we addressed those needs with the 2.2-nvidia release.

During this time, some of our users experienced difficulty with stability due to explosive growth based on our features and performance. In response, we expanded the team with more subject matter experts, redesigned and deployed our infrastructure, and have been experiencing smooth sailing since.  

Alongside this rocket growth, Miner.Farm has seen great improvements in fixes, structure, and setup. Improvements have streamlined the product to be able to handle even the most hardened miners out there. Sign up for a free account with Miner.Farm and capture realtime graphing of your rig’s performance! 

Highlighted infrastructure updates:

Miner.farm code has been getting multiple overhauls at each component to provide more network robustness, security, and accuracy.
We’ve upgraded our server fleet to handle the 100+ rig farms we have running simultaneously online.  We are constantly evaluating, testing, and improving the infrastructure.
The download servers have been upgraded and scale with demand to ensure swift download and install. 
We are evaluating and working with a number of payment processors such as Coinpayments, Stripe, and Coinbase to improve the sales and subscription processes.

Highlighted new features:

 `gputool` has been completely rebuilt, and now will set clocks and fans on both Nvidia and AMD cards. If you were using other scripts or other methods to set fans or clocks, switch to `gputool` for the latest feature support. (For details how to use gputool, Check out our gputool post in forum.getpimp.org’s Overclocking section.)

Are your stats wrong? Are you getting 0mh/s but the miner is running? Does it say screen is terminating without starting the miner? Does the miner not run? Does the miner screen exit? Here is how to fix it in 4 quick steps:

1. Run the command `pimpup` in the terminal and update both the PiMP software, as well as the miner you are running.

2. Does this profile run fine with the defaults? For example, profile 2501 uses ewbfminer and you can restore the default config with: del nvidia.ewbf.zcash.pcfg and then run it with: `pimp --test 1`   (if it is miner id #1 in the `pimp --list`).

3. If `pimp --test 1` does not show you the right information you can go a step further and run without stats and without the screen. This is just for testing: `pimp --debug 1`

4. If you run fine with the default conf then you know it's your conf that is the problem. Double check it with checkconf command.

If you’re having any other problems, come join us in our Discord Channel!


You can now add and remove miners on the miner.farm website! To add a miner, the Agent Settings panel now displays the GPUs in the agent host, and allows you to add miners using the profiles on the rig. Miners can be removed from the Miner Settings panel. (See the miner.farm section on the forum for an easy guide.)

Check out more hardware details about your rigs on your miner.farm panel by clicking the Miner Settings button on a rig in your Farm view.


PiMPUP reminder - stay on top of the latest updates by entering “pimpup” in your terminal screen. 


Chat in real-time with other miner.farm members from around the world and the dev team by joining our Discord Channel! 
We are pleased to have created a new PiMP Beta team to increase the quality, stop bugs, and streamline testing and releasing of updates and new images. So far we have had a nice range of miners from relatively new hobby miners, to large garage pimps, to the largest megawatt datacenters running hundreds of PIMP rigs!
blackice has been promoted from Beta to Testing/Support team and has been helping pimps on the forum and the discord with a great attitude. Special thanks to blackice!


With being one of the first platforms to support Linux users, and the explosion of the Nvidia market this year, we’re excited to see lots of new great miners with great ideas for how to use our tools to optimize your mining experience.  In the future, you can expect to see us feature cool new rig designs and some awesome workshop articles.

Thank you for being a part of the PiMP community. We appreciate each of you and we cheer for your success.

This release Added NVIDIA/AMD Combination rigs support! (Nvidias before AMDs!!)

Yes, This is the best image for ALL AMD & NVIDIA & Mix-and-match GPUs!</b> (Except some people with AMD R 7000/200/300 series may still get better hashrates with the old 1.9 fglrx distribution.)

Other Big Features in PiMP OS 2.4:


  • Added PolarisBiosEditor Visual Video BIOS editor for AMD GPUs to local GUI/RDP desktop. Save, Edit, Replace AMD BIOS from a GUI or the console.
  • Custom PiMP kernels and drivers for extra mining stability and performance.
  • Made key validation easier to understand and what may be causing a key problem.
  • Updated firefox homepage and shortcuts in GUI for easier support.
  • Added atitool for more amd tweaking ability.

Major infrastructure overhaul! We continue to build the new platform and migrate to more powerful servers and codebases every day.

And that means lots of people helping each other make more money with mining.


Support Team Shout Outs:

We would like to welcome a bunch of new beta team members as well as some veterans such as ldemorgan4 and Zamasu that have been helping other pimps this month! The community is our main focus and we appreciate all those who make it the best place to swap ideas and have fun mining!

Improvements have streamlined the product to be able to handle even the most hardened miners out there. Sign up for a free account with Miner.Farm and capture realtime graphing of your rig’s performance!


Forum Highlights:

Category: Unsolved is a new "Unsolved" button right at the top so you can see questions that were asked and still needing some help, or ongoing concerns and investigations! Any information can help, and you might see your question there too, so you will want to check this often. 

Also there are brand new 1080p video guides for both New pimps getting started, and helpme / troubleshooting, check those videos out on the forum: Getting Started -> Quickstart topic, and the Troubleshooting -> How to troubleshoot your rig topic.

NEW! Beta Team Business Tips:

Autoswitching is something that a lot of new miners ask for. The pro miners know that this seems great but it is not. The pros want you to know that the goal is to keep as many rigs mining as much as possible. Any automatic switching or changing when you manage many rigs causes loss of profit due to downtime. They say: Calculate your profit based on the numbers and don't forget to factor labor costs, payout schedules, etc. in when you are making decisions about your farm.


Post your rig in the Rig Showcase on the forum with photos, settings, and hashrates. We will be giving out prizes for some new categories in the coming months!

For more great information about mining, come join us in the PiMP Discord!!

Beta Team Business Tips
One of the most useful features is our `pimpup --auto`. You can set up auto resets of the rig on a regular rotation (we recommend weekly). 
Other things you can do:
  •  reboot the box after it's done pimp'ing up with `pimpup`
  •  `pimp --stop 1 && pimpup --auto && pimp --start 1` can be used to update pimp and the current miner(s) in use (make sure to stop 2,3,4 if you are using those, as well.)
  •  Remember: pimpup only updates the software during the "Updating PiMP Software" part. Then it brings you to a menu to update your miner. After you've updated your software, don't forget to update your miner!

The Future of PiMP: To 3.0 and Beyond!


The PiMP platform is evolving quickly along with the changes to the AMD drivers and their relationship with the Linux kernel. Here's what to expect under the hood over the next few months:
  • PiMP 2.5.1 releases in April using CUDA 9.1 and the PiMP 4.15 Cheesesteak kernel.
  • PiMP 2.6 is in the works for June, and will be based on Linux 4.16.
     Keeping on the latest technology means being the first to support new GPUs, coins, and miners, as well as squeezing every last hash from your cards.
     In addition to this amazing kernel work by the PiMP developer family in moving toward PiMP 3.0 generation, there are some headline features to be announced in the coming months. 
    PiMP 3.0 is going to give you much more control over miner versions and PiMP packages using the apt package system. For instance, you will be able to choose among versions of a miner and pick the one that works great for you. And the ability to provide more updates via pimpup instead of requiring a reimage, this is something that everyone loves. 

Support Team Shout Outs


This month we wanted to focus on our favorite PiMP command tool: helpme
     We've tapped our shiny red rigs together three times and the PiMP team is excited to announce that after consulting the man behind the curtain, helpme is getting a brain!
     Getting smarter, faster, and easier, the next generation of helpme is going to look at the logs and tell you if it sees any problems.  This will help you keep your rigs up and running smooth. And less troubleshooting time is more profit for you.

Miner Highlights


With future changes coming to your favorite coins, you'll need the functionality of a miner that can switch to other coins. Let PiMP come to your rescue because we have lots of examples for how to quickly adjust to changes in the new market with new miners and regular updates. Since we are by miners, for miners, we fulfill as many feature requests as we can. Check out the posts in the product news section on the forum for the latest changelogs, release notes, and coin announcements! This month we added updates for claymore dual, bminer, dstm, ethminer, and over 12 new coins! Don't want to wait for releases? Go to getpimp.org/beta to sign up for the Beta team.

Website Updates


    We are underway renovating our entire web presence, and integrating all things PiMP and Miner.Farm into one site, built from scratch using up to date tools.
    This means that using PiMP and Miner.Farm will be easier than ever; all your account information will be in one place for both PiMP OS purchases and Miner.Farm subscriptions, and you will be able to manage them from one place. With this comes a much improved interface, with far more flexible tools to manage your rigs and farm. 
     Phase One will give you a unified account; all your purchases and subscriptions in one place for both PiMP OS and Miner.Farm. We want to make sure this essential piece is working perfectly with payment providers and our internal accounting so the rollout is not in the immediate future, but it is first on the list for release, and we will be certain to let you know as the day approaches! 

Beta Team Business Tips


We have a weekly customer support call that is now open to all PiMP users! Come for insider updates, hear the latest support developments and get facetime with our developers and extended family.
