Hey ASIC miner chummers. I found something really cool. Custom firmware for the Antminer S9 miners. It will let you overclock your miners. I can only go to 15 TH/s with the factory Bitmain 1600W power supply. Apparently, you can go as high as 17TH/s with a 2600W power supply. Screenshots say it all…
I just selected “Light overclock ~ 15TH” in the overclock profiles and clicked on Save & Run. That easy.
Requires the Bitmain APW5 2600 Watt power supply to overclock at 17 TH/s.
Adjusting the frequency on each individual chip on all three boards is something a person on Adderall might want to do one night. Not me, I’ll pass on that shit.
Set and forget. Autotune takes care of it for you.
Here is a screenshot of my miners. I labeled the miner types in red. The S9s with the custom firmware get 15TH/s consistently.
I’m getting just over 80TH/s now. I’m trying to beat my record of 0.01 BTC payout in two days.
If anyone is still using an Antminer S9 and is interested, holla.
