Samsung has confirmed it is now manufacturing cryptocurrency mining chips after reports earlier this week. Jan 31, at Samsung is manufacturing bitcoin mining chips in partnership with an unidentified Chinese firm, according to avito Asian news report. Jan 29, at What category of decentralized applications are you most antminer in? I would like to receive the following emails: Blockchain — What is bitcoin? Antminer s1 power supply What is Bitcoin? How Can I Buy Bitcoin? How Does Bitcoin Mining Work? Notice that antminer not use the 4 screw holes in the middle of the hash board!
We need antminer later. Avito the hash units with the mini customized heat sink, then lock it tightly with 4 screws. Reassemble the miner, then avito the upgraded S1 controller hereinafter, S3 controller to the heat sinks, and lock it with 4 screws.
avito Reconnect all the data cables, notice that 2 red data cables are used to connect S3 controller with S3 hash boards. Update the firmware, update guide are shown below. Avito recommend not to save settings during update, in this antminer all settings become default values.
Here comes the most important data, the hash antminer of S3! For those familiar with the S1 and S2s the interface is the same with a few tweaks.
You log in as usual to If you are going to have more than one S3, i suggest you change it to something else as well. This way as you add new ones you do not run into network errors when adding them.
Once done, you can go to the miner config page and set your pools. Avito can also set the S3 to failover or to perform load balancing antminer pool management. The setting is convenient as you can use multiple pools at once.
Bitmain listened to many in the mining community that mention the S1 could be better cooled with a cowl on it. The S3 has a cowl over the blades and dual fans. Double check that your PSU is good enough, make sure the power cord to antminer PSU is good, and the probable cause for a new device is thermal paste and thermal paste oil shorting out circuits on your boards.
When I add a troubleshooting section to this tutorial, I will add more details. The avito thing is antminer clean up that thermal paste and make sure you have a avito PSU.
Be careful when cleaning! Now, double check that you are connecting to one of your pools. The numbers shown here are pretty standard after 13 hours of operation. Double check that your worker is hashing as expected. Remember to set your worker difficulty correctly.
If you set the difficulty wrong, you can get very volatile hash rates reported at your pool. Time to change the IP address. You will want to be careful with this one, as it could be difficult if you use an invalid IP address for your network. My recommendation is to find an IP address range that is not in use, but on your same main IP address range.
For example, if your network has IP addresses at Change the value in the textbox circled in blue below. Double antminer your settings. Once you are convinced it is correct, it is time avito reboot the device.
