CGMiner is downloaded as a zip file, which contains files that must be extracted to a directory on the computer. In this directory, the user then needs to create a. BAT file that contains the following text:. The default value iswhich corresponds to a speed of 1.
Users can increase antminer speed to 1. The user can then save this BAT file, then overclock on it to start the mining process. The problem is that the higher power consumption leads usb more heat and can also result in less performance when overclocking. Have in mind that USB 2. Have in mind that USB 3. As you can see from the results above hitting 2. Moving to USB 3. Your email address will not be published. Leave this field empty.
Tests and Overclock Tags: Mez March 13th, at DssTech March 21st, at Andrew May 1st, at DinkoS1 May 2nd, at Now it sits in a pile with other defunct usb. If they ever come up with other antminer for these besides crypto currency, I am sure I will put it back into overclock. Following the instructions the setup went ok. The fact that you have to download two separate generic drivers was not newbie friendly. Anyhow, I connected to a pool usb standard 1. Initially saw a few invalid nonce HW errors, but after the thing warmed up I no antminer see any errors.
By warm, I mean hot.
No fan or forced air cooling. Seems like active cooling or lowered clock rate will be needed in the summer. They chug along reliably and consistently. I strongly recommend only making a purchase of these through Jones Gear they are a seller here on Amazon. Jones Gear always comes through.
Stay away from the vendors who have "goofy" or "unprofessional" or "foreign sounding" business names. This product usb perfectly! I have had it running now for 24 hours overclock no problems, but it does get quite hot. I would defiantly suggest getting a USB fan or something to cool it in addition.
I had a bit of trouble being a noob at this so I am going to include the link to the specific cgminer build that will run the miner at its antminer speed.
If you are running on Windows download: I would also suggest creating overclock batch file: I am not responsible if you change the bmsc options and you break your hardware. That should get you started. Item quick and easy to start and usb with current cgminer version. Happy with my antminer U1 purchase. If your getting into ASIC mining, pick up at least 6 of these to start your mining rig with.
I currently have each of antminer cards over clocked to 1.
