NVIDIA Quadro M4000 not being detected by Nicehash OS.

I recently got an NVIDIA Quadro M4000 With the intent to mine bitcoin with it. When I boot up my bitcoin mining PC, it says that there is an error on the slot where I have the quadro plugged into. then, when nicehash OS boots, and starts to mine, it doesn't detect the card and just mines with the other GPUs that are in the PC. what can I do to fix this? Thanks!

legality and mining method questions

hello,
So its been a long time since i touched monero and i really backed away when washington state became aware of the bitcoin craze.
So here are a couple questions and please tell me if there is some were better to post this question(s)
Sorry for the multiple questions im just trying to learn more before i get back into the mining.

Beginners basic guide to building your own PC as of early 2018
(EDIT: Sorry for being a MSI/Corsair Fanboy)
Heres a collection of thoughts to consider when building your own personal PC
As always Id personally use PCPartPicker.com to configure your parts and for further thoughts on compatibility.
First off building a computer is 100% based around what you plan to use the computer for.
Here are a few uses and generic ideas of what to go for. Audio Editing: Lots of small tasks that need to be completed quickly without lag. - Fast Processor( >4GHZ) - Fast RAM (MHZ) -At least 16 gigs! - Fast Storage, SSD manditorily - M.2 or PCI for best performance. - Shitty Graphics card, graphics card there only to keep the cpu from doing other tasks when working. - Can be a few generations or years old. - Many screens for lots of plug in windows to be open Video Editing: Lots of large to render and files to read. - Multi core processor the more the merrier - SSD for fast read/write of large video files. - Insane graphics card, AMD graphics cards are debatibly better but the nvidia Quadro series are specific for video rendering. Gaming: No more than 4 cores intense graphics card - 92% of games are not coded for more than 4 cores so why spend the extra money for it. - SSD for quick load screens - Nvidia cards, 10 series, the higher the number the better. Titan cards for MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE! Coding: quick processor for lots of small tasks. Ergonomic peripherials? - Dear god please dont use a mechanical keyboard so that your coworkers dont kill you. Home office: Everything can be a few gens behind so you can get the best power per dollar spent. - Sorry that Gateway doesnt exist anymore. I guess try Dell...

10 minute rule btc or all coins

i know bitcoin has a rule of 10 minutes you have to submit a share or you dont get anything i was wondering does all coins use the same 10 minute rule or is it just btc?
i am mining x16r and no matter what overclock settings i use it does not make a difference in the hashrate so i am wondering if x16r does not require overclocking because it does not have the 10 minute rule thereby you can get a share on some of the earlier cuda nvidia cards like the quadro 600 witch only has 96 cuda cores and is very unprofitable and would time out on btc.

Best GPU for CUDA applications?

I am interested in getting a new nvidia card for my desktop. I don't play games often so I am really more interested in using it WPA hashes using the program pyrit in linux, or maybe some bitcoin mining for giggles. Although I have chosen a card to go with since I have a limited budget, I was wondering what would otherwise be the best card to get? Would a Quadro card be better over a gaming card in regards to price and performance? Thank you.

What size farm would make CPU mining worth it?

I am completely new to bitcoin mining and know very little about it. I am sure I have not been the first to have an idea like this either, but here goes.
So after reading this article, I started wondering how feasible it is to do this at my workplace, since I am the sole Network/Sys Admin in the company.
It occurred to me that it would be trivial to deploy bitcoin miners via group policy to all 80+ of our workstations (most of which are decent machines: Core i7 with 8GB RAM is typical) and set them up to do hashing on a schedule...say, after business hours for example.
My question is, setting aside the ethics of this, would this setup even yield any coins within a reasonable time period to make it worth trying if I wanted to go solo?
I guess I could also invite most or all of the 20 servers sitting in our datacenter to the party, but I have no idea if that would make things better or worse in a scenario like this.
Thoughts?
Edit: I should also mention that many of the workstations have NVidia Quadro workstation graphics cards in them, though I'm not sure whether those would be more efficient than the CPU.

Issues with miners for FTC on Ubuntu 16.04

So, I'm recently getting back into the cryptocurrency game. Used to mine Bitcoin somewhere around 2013, didn't get very far and quit when the writing on the wall said that there was no more fun to be had mining BTC.
Figured I'd get into FTC seeing as the difficulty is low and if I make any reasonable result, I'll sit on it and see where it goes. Not looking for multi-figure yields, just trying to find something to make my CAD workstation do while I'm out and about during the day.
Now, I'm not one to qualify as terminal-inept; I'm quite friendly with it. But when you throw the myriad of miners, the myriad of coins, and the myriad of different build dependencies on board, it's hard to get an install that works correctly. On top of that, the computer is running a Nvidia Quadro GPU, and it seems like Nvidia anything is generally boo-booed, at least by all the tutorials and documents I've read.
So that being said, I'm not an idiot when it comes to installing software (I write plenty), but the stuff surrounding miners perplexes me to say the least, and I've given this an entire day to get this far.
I'm having issues setting up one of the varieties of CGMiner on a (fairly fresh) Ubuntu 16.04 installation. Or, at least, I think I'm having issues. I cloned down this repo (cgminer-neoscrypt) and configured it, currently running it at -I 20 on The Blocks Factory FTC pool.
the full invokation is (if it matters):
cgminer --neoscrypt -o stratum+tcp://s1.theblocksfactory.com:3333 -u **** -p **** -I 20 
It says that it's making about 41.6 KH/s average, which I'm not arguing with (being used to BTC hash rates), and it does indicate Feathercoin, but there's a few things throwing me off here:
Any idea what's going on here? A lot has changed since I last was mining. Is there something going on that's off here, or am I just perplexed over the thing operating as usual? The last bullet-point is what I'm particularly worried about - does The Blocks Factory have significant lag in reporting results? Once I see some numbers appear on-site I might feel a little better.

[US] Under $1500 15" laptop for graphics programming and media (not gaming). Lenovo ThinkPad W530, Dell Precision M4700, or other?

I'm looking for a 15" Ivy Bridge laptop that will last for at least four years, even under frequent use (torrenting or rendering when I'm not personally using it). It needs a dedicated GPU for graphics programming (and programming in general, for which CUDA/OpenCL will be useful) and for watching movies and anime. Any modern CPU and GPU are basically "good enough", and the RAM and hard drive are upgradable, so I'm judging largely based on display and keyboard quality.
After comparing laptops that meet these specs, I'm probably going to get the ThinkPad W530 with an Intel Core i7-3610QM, NVIDIA Quadro K2000M, and 1600x900 display. ThinkPads are known for their durability and keyboard quality, and they're very upgradable. Some questions, though:
(A while ago I asked /SuggestALaptop about the Dell Inspiron 15R SE and got some helpful suggestions, concluding that the Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 might be better. Since then, I've handled both at Best Buy and neither was comfortable to type on; the Inspiron flexes too much, and the short Backspace and Enter keys on the IdeaPad would be hard to adapt to. The ThinkPad and Precision are business-class laptops, more expensive than the ones I was looking at before, but if I have it five years later and don't need an upgrade, it's worth it.)
