We’re yet to post Ravencoin mining guide for beginners, however till now we’ve published around 3 posts and that’s regarding X16R Miners (Ravencoin). Links below.
Among those miners we prefer Suprminer 1.6 which seems to be faster and stable than any other miners out there. Also unlike enemy; Suprminer is open source. Even if the new enemy miner seem to be faster we’re going to stick towards Suprminer and the only reason is it being open source.
