All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
We have compiled an updated version of the cgminer 3.7.2 for Gridseed 5-chip ASIC devices with some small fixes and have an option to try and overclock the device over the previously available maximum limit of 1000 MHz. Now you can try running the device at 1050, 1100, 1150, 1200, 1250 and 1300 MHz, though these in our experience going past 950 MHz will most likely produce only hardware errors, you are still welcome to try. So far 850 MHz operating frequency for Scrypt only mining mode seems to produce the best results with most devices, though you are welcome to experiment with yours. For a guide on how to install and use the Gridseed 5-chip ASICS with this cgminer. Also note that cgminer 3.7.2 for Gridseed does require you to replace the standard virtual USB to COM driver with WinUSB driver with the help of the software Zadig in order for cgminer to be able to detect and use the GSD ASIC devices.
