Latest Optimized CGMiner Configuration for Gridseed Blades!

Well, just wanted to do a short update on optimizing the Gridseed Blades a bit more.

I found that you can actually run these Gridseed Blades at 850Mhz just fine, there’s some more hardware errors but hashing is a bit faster and getting around 2.879Mh/s per blade.

Here’s my cgminer.conf file:

How to Make Gridseed Blade Mining Rig! [Pre-Built CGMiner]

For this month’s Rig of the Month, check out the latest ASIC Scrypt miner, Gridseed Blade Mining Rig!

Based on 80 Gridseed chips, Gridseed Blades are ASIC Scrypt miners capable of 5.6Mh/s at only 100 watts of power.  These currently (as of April 30th 2014) cost around $1500-1600 with ROI of around 6 months at $15/day. (You can use CoinWarz.com to see profit at the moment.)

In other words, these are the best rigs to use to mine Scrypt coins such as Litecoins and Dogecoins “right now”.  My graphic card rigs a

How to Make Stackable Tower Gridseed Rig with Raspberry Pi! [Pre-built CGminer]

For those of you who are thinking about making your own Gridseed rig for Scrypt mining (for Litecoin, Dogecoin, etc…etc…), you may want to make them into stackable “towers”.

Initially, I’ve built my Gridseed rig using a standard motherboard and Ubuntu linux with a custom frame but I realize this is very time-consuming and tedious.  Besides that, when you have multiple Gridseeds running at the same time, the fans on them get pretty loud.  It was loud enough where the bass
