Overclocking of video cards in mining is very important thing for miners. As a rule, at standard frequencies, the hash rate on most algorithms will not be optimal. But the main thing is the competent downvolt of each card, otherwise the power consumption will be unreasonably high. Roughly speaking, the hashrate will be the same, and consumption is 2 times less on a correctly configured card. MinerOs supports overclocking and downvolting of both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.
After installing MinerOs operating system on a USB flash drive/SSD or HDD you need to make sure that the configuration file, located in the root of the MinerOs, MINEROS_DISK:\auth.txt drive contains your email with which you are registered in the MinerOs system.
MinerOs installation is very simple and fast process for everybody, including non-linuxoids. First of all you need any USB-stick or SSD/HDD drive 8Gb minimum and mining rig with 2Gb+ RAM.
Modern mining farms usually make with cheap motherboards for socket LGA1151 with the cheapest CPU for this platform — Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU G3900 or Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU G3930. It is a 2-core processor with 2Mb of level 3 cache, supporting AES instructions and produced using 14 nm technology. Almost nobody uses it for mining, however, if you look at it, it has some potential!
Now are one of the most difficult times for the miners: the courses of cryptocurrencies are sagging, the competition has increased, and the complex mining is growing accordingly. MiningRigsRentals can be considered as one of the options to increase profitability for miners. The essence of this service is that you rent out your facilities (more expensive than you can find yourself), and when no one rents your rigs, they will automatically switch mining to your favorite pool. So there is a chance to earn more money than just miniature on your pool.
Starting from 2018, miners have to survive to stay “afloat”. If in 2017 to pay 3 dollars a month for the “popular service for rig mining monitoring” was easy, now it is much more difficult. Actually, for this reason, a new OS monitoring service with the price 3 times cheaper has appeared. But this is not what we are talking about now. Miners have become in so difficult situation that they have not only to save on software for monitoring but also to optimize their revenues. The days when miners put on the “air” and forgot about everything for months are gone. Now you need to search for the most favorable coins for a particular type of video card. But even here it is not so simple: even for one day the coin that was the most profitable can generally go into the minus by income, then you need to analyze and manually include another coin in the mining process.
If you are already using some kind of Linux assembly for mining and want to switch to MinerOs as fast as possible and without stopping the mining — it’s quite easy to do it by following the instructions below.
Mining, as a way to mine cryptocurrency, is an effective opportunity for investment and profit generation. High profitability from the results of the mining farm attracts professional miners and beginners. In order to receive passive income with minimum investments, rigs for mining are used. The rig is a device, represents a part or an element of a mining farm and serves for the production of the cryptocurrency. Rigs consist of a motherboard with an installed processor and RAM, power supplies and racks with video cards.
