If you are still using an NVidia 1080 Ti card, and are trying to compete with the 2080s and 3090s these days, you need to up your hash game. There has been a tool around for the past 2 years to help with this. It is specifically designed for teh 1080 Ti cards, and has increased my hashes in the area of 50% per card. I wanted to preserve the software on github, so I created my own fork of it. The fork will not be updated, or worked on by me. It is just there so we all have a place to draw from in the long run.

For my setup, I am running Ubuntu 20.04.01, headless, and an Nvidia 1080ti. My miner is T-Rex with the setup from this guide:

Back to the guide

On your miner, open a terminal
sudo bash
cd /tacticalware
git clone
mv ETHlargementPill/ ohgod
cd ohgod
chmod +x OhGodAnETHlargementPill-r2
screen ./OhGodAnETHlargementPill-r2

You will see the following message:

Your system is now capable of running at 50% greater speed.

Since you used screen you can close this connection and it will still run.
To reconnect to this screen you can resume it by opening a terminal again
Typing sudo bash
Then screen -r

All that is left is to start up your mining software, configure it to mine ETH or ETC and start mining.

Enjoy the extra hashes!

Since the latest teamviewer update, I have had to switch away from it altogether for a better alternative. Enter Chrome Remote Desktop… This package allows me to connect to my Windows computers, and linux computers in a similar manner, and also allows for me to connect to my headless mining rigs. The guide below details how I set up chrome remote desktop on headless ubuntu 20.04 rig.

sudo bash

apt update

apt-get install –assume-yes wget


dpkg –install chrome-remote-desktop_current_amd64.deb
apt install –assume-yes –fix-broken

sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive \
apt install –assume-yes xfce4 desktop-base

sudo bash -c ‘echo “exec /etc/X11/Xsession /usr/bin/xfce4-session” > /etc/chrome-remote-desktop-session’

sudo apt install –assume-yes xscreensaver

sudo systemctl disable lightdm.service

sudo usermod -a -G chrome-remote-desktop $USER


On a different computer
Open the Chrome browser
Go to
Sign In
Click Begin
Select Next
Click Authorize

Copy the code that looks like this:
DISPLAY= /opt/google/chrome-remote-desktop/start-host \
–code=”4/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx” \
–redirect-url=”” \

Enter in a six digit pin
Confirm the pin
Enter in your sudo password

Your installation should be complete

Open Chrome Remote Desktop on a computer, and connect to your headless system.
