Can you mine using your CPU and GPU? When I am running ccminer GPU for nVidia, the program is only using the GPU to mine.

Thank you,

You will most likely need to run two mining programs at once. (this isn't really a big deal, you will just need to open another command prompt to start the other one)

The ccminer-cryptonight that you are using was forked from someone elses code that originally WAS a cpu-miner but after reading the README.txt it doesn't look like there's a way to specify you want to ALSO use your CPU.

I haven't used this specific CPU miner for XMR but claymore seems to know his stuff for everything else he's written (if its a he) https://github.com/nanopool/Claymore-XMR-CPU-Miner
