Holy WOW! This is such cool. I'm hooked! What do I do now? Where to start? OMG to the moon. Yippie Yippie
Hi Shibes.... I just found out about doge coin and I'm so pumped....WOW....SUCH....THIS IS AWESOME. I had no idea you could mine coins on a PC. LOL.....to the moon. Awesome! Guys....I can't even think straight because I feel like I've been reborn. I have a new life with doge coin! God dang it....this is such cool. Where do I start? At the moon? (lol joke) No serious though....I'm pumped up and wanna started mining. How do I do it? I'm using a 2010 Mac Pro desktop. How do I get this thing mining? God dammit...I can't think straight because I'm so excited. This is my new hobby you guys. I'm so happy to be apart of this community. Whats the best way to contribute here? Shibes? I was looking on ebay for a "acis miner" and I found this. It's a miner in my price range. Should I buy it shiberinos? Thanks for all the help. I finally feel like my life has meaning. This is so dang awesome. Yeeeahhh baby.....I'm back in the saddle.
Link to Part 1 Continuing in my attempt to overclock an Antminer U1 to 2.8Gh/s I acquired the replacement resistors, new heatsink, thermal compound, and some Chip Quik to make removing the old SMD resistors a simple task. Heatsink: Enzotech CNB-S1 Thermal Compound: Tuniq TX2 3.74Kohm Resistor: Panasonic SMD 0603 resistor 10Kohm Resistor: Panasonic SMD 0603 resistor The first step was to remove the 1Kohm resistor in the R1 location. After wiping the board down with an alcohol pad, adding flux, and a little dab of Chip Quik on one side of the resistor kept the solder molten long enough to heat up the other side and slide it off the board. Antminer U1 with R1 removed Next step was to clean off the old flux with another alcohol wipe, inspect the board to make sure I hadn't lifted the solder pad, apply more flux and solder in the 10Kohm resistor, followed by the 3.74Kohm resistor. I ordered a bunch of the 10Kohm resistor as they were really cheap, but the tolerance is 1%, so I went through a few resistors on the multimeter before finding a 10.01Kohm resistor. As there was already solder on the pads for R2 it was just a matter of using tweezers to hold the resistor in place while applying heat to one pad. After that it was trivial to just apply heat to the other end and get a good connection. The 3.74Kohm resistor is 0.1%, so I ended up settling on a 3.72Kohm out of the few I ordered. Adding the R1 resistor was as simple as the R2, though I had to add a bit more solder on the side that had been Chip Quik'd. Another clean and inspection resulted in the following. Antminer U1 with replaced R1 and R2 The final step was to chop off the side mounts on the heatsink and drill two holes to mount the Antminer to it. A quick bit of metal cutting with a Dremel got rid of those, and also smoothed off the rough edges. I ended up having to position the Antminer at an angle on the heatsink to get it to fit nicely. A 2mm bit drilled the correct size holes to accommodate the two screws that held the old Antminer heatsink in place. I didn't have to tap threads into the drilled holes as the screws were strong enough to cut into the copper on their own. A small application of the thermal compound to the gold plated area on the back of the Antminer (refer to Part 1 images) and I attached the Antminer securely to the heatsink. Top view of Antminer U1 attached to heatsink Bottom view of Antminer U1 attached to heatsink Bottom view of other side I apologize for the awful camera potato pictures, I'll attempt to get a proper camera and take nicer ones at some point in the near future. Now for the moment of truth, after unplugging all the other USB miners I slotted the modified Antminer and started up bfgminer running the ASIC at stock frequency. After letting it run for about an hour without anything catching on fire or exploding it was time to up the frequency. I slowly upped the frequency to 350MHz to try reach 2.8Gh/s, though at 350MHz I ran into what I'm assuming are power supply issues and the hash rate dropped to 0.8Gh/s, but didn't throw any HW errors. At 300MHz it hashes away happily at 2.58Gh/s with no HW errors, so I'll leave it at that speed for 24 hours and see what happens. Thanks for reading, hope this helps other people overclock their Antminers.
I just did a 12 year stint in federal prison for sexual assault on a minor. I've been rehabilitated and I'm looking for a nice clean hobby. This mining thing looks cool?
Where do I start? Whats a good miner to get? I'm using a 2005 e-machine that my brother gave me. Can this computer work for mining? Also...I was looking at buying a asic miner. Is this a good one to buy. Thanks so much.
Bitmain AntMiner U1 1.6GH/S USB Miner: Worth getting?
Hi all! I'm relatively new to mining and wanted to ask if the Bitmain AntMiner U1 1.6GH/S USB Miner was worth getting to mine some btc, given the difficulty right now, do you guys this 1.6Gh/S is enough to consider getting one? I've heard you generally need more than one to mine anything significant, I'd really appreciate some advice before I get one. Also I can try to mine something else and convert it to bitcoins if that works but the asic miners can only mine SHA-256 I think. Thank you!
How do you get started with USB ASIC miners? Is it worth it?
I see the AntMiner U1's and the Butterfly Labs 5GH/s rig and I wonder if these are good investments or not. What is the best USB stick for bitcoin mining right now? How long will ASIC miners be useful?
