1) Make sure all of the parts are included in the box including: A power supply unit, Ethernet cable, USB cable, screwdriver for assembly and setup instructions.

2) Mount the miner on a piece of wood or something similar (this will prevent vibrations from damaging other things).

3) Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to your router or modem and connect the other end to port 1 on your Antminer.

Connect one end of a USB cable to your computer and connect the other end to port 0 on your Antminer. (If you’re using Linux, we recommend installing the cgminer driver for usbserial first).

Plug in power supply unit into an available outlet near where you plan to set up your miner. Do not plug in until after it is fully assembled! Connect power supply cables from PSU to each board at rear of miner, then push them down tight so they make contact with boards – do this for both left and right side PSUs. Make sure all connections are secure before proceeding any further!

Follow instructions that came with machine or use online resources if needed 🙂

Connect power supply cables from PSU to each board at rear of miner, then push them down tight so they make contact with boards – do this for both left and right side PSUs. Make sure all connections are secure before proceeding any further!

(Make sure you have the appropriate ethernet cables and power supply unit on hand before starting.)

Once you’ve assembled your miner, it’s time to plug in our first connections. #Plug in a network cable into the Ethernet port at the back of each board. These ports will be labeled “ETH” or “WAN”. You do not need an internet connection for this step! This is only necessary when setting up cgminer software later on.

You want to have two PSUs. Plug in one PSU into the “Left” and one power supply unit into the “Right”. Next, you’ll need to plug a network cable from your router or modem with internet access into each miner’s Ethernet port labeled ETH0 on both boards at the back of the miner – these will be located next to each other.

To help stabilize airflow, attach included rubber grommets near all four corners of front panel (just under where blades are). This is important for cooling!

Next up: connecting wires that come out of rear left side motherboard connector labeled PWR_SENNDATA+PWR_DATA-, connect them together by matching black wire/red wire to black wire/red. You should now have two cables coming out of the same connector, one red and one black with a yellow stripe.

Next up: connect wires that come out of rear right side motherboard connector labeled PWR_SENNDATA+,PWR_DATA-, this time you will be matching white wire to white wire (ignore blue). Then plug these into opposite ends of same PSU on your rig – you’ll need to use included power splitter for both PSUs if they’re not already being used elsewhere in your setup.

Now it’s time to attach miners’ GPUs! To do so, first assemble GPU bracket onto each miner board by inserting long edge first followed by short edge then locking them together with included thumb screws.

Next, find the motherboard with a PCIe x16 slot and use provided bracket to mount it on top of this setup (notice how front edge is overlapping GPU bracket from before?). Then plug power cables for both GPUs into connector that’s right next to your rig’s PSU – remember they go in one at a time to avoid any possible mix-ups!

Finally, attach miners’ risers by screwing them straight onto miner boards via long side first then turning clockwise until you feel resistance or hear a click sound. You can now lock these down using two small black screws found near where each riser attaches to board. Do not over tighten as doing so may damage metal threads inside connectors!

Main points: Setting up your Antminer, attaching GPU risers and screwing them in place.

You’re now ready to plug in your Antminer, and then power it up!

Connecting a GPU Riser Card to Your Mining Rig’s Motherboard or CPU (to allow for more than one GPU)

Step-by-step:

Connecting On Windows

  • First, find the PCIe slot on your motherboard that you want to use – most motherboards have several PCIe slots available but make sure you pick an open one that isn’t being used by anything else such as USB ports and soundcards. The next step is connecting a riser cable from your PCI-E 16x slot on the rig’s motherboard directly into graphics card slot number two which should be at the top of the long row of cards (see picture).

Next, screw in each GPU individually onto its own risers using two small black screws found near where each riser meets the board itself. Make sure they’re tightened down tightly with just enough pressure so that there will be no movement but not so tight as to bend the card’s PCB board.

Now you need to connect your monitor out from the video cards into one of two graphics card ports on your motherboard (see picture). To do this, take a DVI cable for example and find where it has an open end that plugs in with no connector plugged in next to it – usually at the top or bottom edge of each GPU card slot. Take that side by side plugging both ends together until they fit snugly without any extra slack and gently push them down into their respective slots.

Then turn on power switch located below rig (this is called ‘powering up’ antminer) by flipping lever to “ON” position then wait while system boots up.

Once system has booted up, you will see the default Antminer screen on your monitor. To get onto Windows login prompt type in “admin” for username and leave password field empty to enter it (you may need to refer back to your motherboard manual if not sure how to do this). Then press Enter key after entering admin as user name.

Then click on Start button located at bottom left of window and choose Control Panel from menu that pops up then go to System and Security section. Once there select Change settings which is located under User Account Control icon – make a note of slider bar with red text saying ‘Do Not Show This Message Again’ so you know where it is when we return here later.

Now click on Change settings, under “User Account Control” section select ‘Never Notify’.

Under the Security category click on Action Center to bring up a window with security alerts for your machine.

Now go back to User Accounts and then make sure you have Administrators group listed in Group or user names list on right hand side of window. If not add it there by clicking Add button at bottom left of screen – type in administrator as username if given one. Now enter password when prompted (again refer back to motherboard manual for assistance). You can create an account but we do not need this because we are going straight into Windows OS from booting CD so skip that process altogether now and come back later before logging out of current account.

Next you need to make sure you have Administrator privileges in User Accounts and Groups. To do this, click on the Manage button above the list of users or groups and select Properties. The window that opens will show a large blue area where we can add administrators by clicking Add next to it. Now enter administrator as username if given one and type your password when prompted – then press Enter key twice (once for each time).

Next go back into Action Center tab again under Security category from Control Panel-Windows Update section look at Important Updates – there should be none listed with exception of Windows updates which is out of scope for our needs now so uncheck everything else before proceeding with setup process below after completing all previous steps first.

Enter BIOS Setup by pressing F12 key at the post-boot screen.

Select Advanced tab and then select Integrated Peripherals – there should be a list of different devices in alphabetical order which starts with Audio, Keyboard/Mouse, Mice & other pointing devices and so on. Highlight your network card (usually one will have Intel or Realtek logos) from this list by left clicking once on it to highlight the whole row for it before proceeding further below after completing all previous steps first.

In Overview section under IDE Devices set Primary Master Hard Disk Drive as IDE0 – if you don’t see any such option listed please refer to motherboard documentation for how to enter BIOS Setup Mode and proceed following those instructions instead while disregarding anything mentioned here for IDE Devices.

Under SATA Operation set Primary Master as AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) – if you don’t see any such option listed please refer to motherboard documentation for how to enter BIOS Setup Mode and proceed following those instructions instead while disregarding anything mentioned here for SATA Operation.

In MISC section under Intel Virtualization Technology configure Enabled with VT-x/EPT or Disabled depending on what’s supported by the motherboard. If in doubt disable it, then boot up Windows that way and proceed checking your CPUID information from Control Panel -> System where Processor Name should be followed by a list of numbers separated by commas which are most likely xx sequence of CPUID values. If VT-x/EPT is supported by the motherboard, re-enable it and then restart PC to have BIOS Setup Mode automatically load after POST from now on.

*Enter your login credentials for Windows in Boot Menu section under Other OSes so that you can boot into Linux Subsystem at any time if desired without having to enter BIOS setup again or use one of many other tools available online which provide this functionality with less effort than entering BIOS every single time when needed.

*Under SATA Operation set Primary Master as AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) – if you don’t see any such option listed please refer to motherboard documentation for how to enter BIOS Setup Mode and proceed following those instructions instead whilex065C: Install Windows operating system with the same SATA operation mode you want to use for Linux Subsystem.

If your motherboard supports Intel AHCI then set it as such and otherwise under CSM (Compatibility Support Module) disable “Launch Legacy Option ROMs” by putting a checkmark next to Launch legacy option ROMs .

Connecting On Linux

Install Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or later version of Linux distribution on that computer using one of two methods: either via DVD installer which can be found without any additional help online like in this guide, or alternatively install from an external USB drive if not already installed on internal hard drive at all by following instructions provided here starting from running `sudo apt-get update` command up until installation is finished.

After Ubuntu installation is finished, follow these instructions to install cgminer and configure it to start automatically at boot time by editing the file `/etc/rc.local` with your favorite text editor like in this guide on how to edit startup programs for systemd-based Linux distributions or alternatively you can use any other method that’s more suitable for what type of distribution you’re using instead:

sudo sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y install cgminer && cd /home/$USERNAME*/cgminer && su $USERNAME -c ‘./configure –enable-submit_stale; make appendto.uname # xtargetboard’&&exit 0

In case you’re using a system with systemd, you can use the following command to configure cgminer to start automatically at boot time:

sudo sudo apt-get -y install cgminer && cd /home/$USERNAME*/cgminer && su $USERNAME -c ‘./configure –enable-submit_stale; make appendto.uname # xtargetboard’&&exit 0

In case you’re using a distribution that doesn’t have systemd support or wish not to use it (such as Debian Jessie), then please see this guide on how to edit startup programs for various Linux distributions instead. You’ll need your favorite text editor like in this guide and follow instructions there on editing `/etc/init.d/cgminer` or `~/.bash_profile`.

Linking A Bitcoin Wallet

In order for you to use the bitcoin that you mined, you’ll need a wallet. There are many different types of wallets and they each have their pros and cons so we won’t go into too much detail about which one is the best because it really does depend on what your needs are in terms of security, anonymity etcetera but there’s always some sort of tradeoff with any cryptocurrency. For example if you want maximum anonymity then obviously using something like Tor will help protect your privacy but keep in mind this also means that transactions may be slightly slower than without it.

You’ll need to download and install the wallet of your choice on a computer that is connected with internet [Anonymity] or directly on your desktop, mobile phone [Security]. There are different versions available for every operating system so you might want to consult some tutorials online first before installing it if this won’t be your first time using bitcoin.

Once you have the wallet installed, it’s time to load up on bitcoins. This can be done by either buying them from a bitcoin exchange or accepting them as payment for goods and services. If you are looking to buy your coins then there is a big list of exchanges available with various pros and cons so make sure that you do some research before deciding which one suits your needs best [Security].

– Now that we’ve got our coins loaded into the wallet how will they actually get mined? That’s where mining pools come in handy: miningpools allow miners (people using their own hardware) to work together improving their chances of finding blocks while also receiving regular payouts.[Anonymity] You just connect your miner to the pool, and it will start making money for you.

– Great! So all I need is a miningpool? Not so fast – there’s still one more step: you also need software to help run your miner.[Cost] Luckily these can usually be found in free versions that are just as good as their paid counterparts. This information might change over time, but at this point we recommend CCMiner [Hardware].

Security Of Your Wallet

Security of bitcoin exchanges varies greatly from exchange to exchange based on location or type of currency used with many exchanges having no custodial protection whatsoever (i.e., the user protects themselves by storing private keys offline). There have been instances when bitcoins have disappeared off wallets through security flaws in the code.

If you are trading bitcoin, then it is an excellent idea to follow general security guidelines and use a strong password with your account credentials as well as having two-factor authentication set up for withdrawals. This information might change over time, but at this point we recommend Coinbase [Security] and Circle [Security] exchange services (see above).

Basically every other day there’s news about another big company or government getting into cryptocurrency. With so many people jumping on board there will be plenty of opportunities for any investors who get their timing right – just look at what happened when Amazon announced that they were accepting Bitcoin earlier this year! But if you’re looking to invest now in something less risky, there are plenty of other options for you.

Bitcoin’s Price

Bitcoin is notoriously volatile and the price can be affected by seemingly small events, but if you’re looking to invest money that you might need in a year or two – bitcoin could still have some good gains ahead of it!

Аs more financial institutions start taking an interest in cryptocurrency, it’s natural to worry about regulation. But regulators aren’t necessarily on the side of investors either: they often want to protect consumers from risk and harm regardless of whether those risks come with potential rewards. So when will we know what type of regulatory framework cryptocurrencies fall under? There’s no easy answer; instead, this is just one question among many which will only become more pressing in the coming months and years.

The good news is that more people are now aware of the benefits cryptocurrencies offer, which means they’re a lot less likely to be put out of use by overbearing regulation – though if regulators do clamp down on them too hard then it’s possible some communities will split off and try to find new ways around existing laws. It’s also worth noting that there may be many different regulatory frameworks for cryptocurrency depending on where you live: at present Japan has been heavily focused on developing its own digital currency while China just banned all ICOs as well as crypto exchanges; Russia has said it wants to regulate Bitcoin but not ban it altogether.; South Korea has expressed an interest in discussing regulations with other countries, including North Korea, to determine what sort of regulations would be appropriate.
