    You don't say what hardware you're using.
    Rough guide, in 24 hrs with a good graphics card hashing at 6 meg,you might get 0.2 Dash per day(.03 dash per mega hash per day)
    With a cpu only running 8 threads giving 0.3 megahash, you will get around .01 Dash per day (0.0033 dash in 8 hrs)
    check coinwarz for various estimates.

    NVidia meant to getting better on power consumption and more optimized but I only use AMD, my best card is a R9 290 tri X, and I get around 8.5 megahash speed with that.

    Edit: I like how I can undervolt it, be careful to get a card that is unlocked otherwise you can be running high temps and wasting power for nothing!
    My XFX R9 280X is voltage locked, and its really annoying, I even flashed the ROM but it will not unlock, I think the regulator is missing off the board, so buy better makes and check em.

    hang on ...

    I crashed after that demo above, btw.
    Good tip (which I don't follow) is gradually change your clock speeds/voltages rather than steam in there, whacking everything upto 11 in one go :rolleyes:

    You are always 1 step ahead, Wolf,
    btw hope you got your little tip alright, I was mentioning you to someone (again) and I felt it courteous as they were using your work.
