There were some requests from readers to provide a compiled binary for windows of the latest cgminer 3.7.2 with Gridseed support based on the jmordica fork, so we have compiled it. The most notable difference from the previous compiled version of cgminer we have posted with support for the G-Blades (also present here) is the addition of support for NiceHash service where you can now also use your Gridseed ASICs to sell your hashrate. The supported frequencies range from 700 to 1400 with finer grain selection available, for the complete list of supported frequencies you can check the readme file. Below you can download the windows binary, you can change options by editing the config file.
We have updated our windows build of the cgminer 3.7.2 with support for Gridseed 5-chip GC3355 ASICs to properly support the new 80-chip Gridseed G-Blade miners, this release is based on the (girnyau source) with the fix for more than 8 chips (up to 256) from dbartle’s version. Previous releases did not properly reported the local hashrate of the new Gridseed G-Blade miners that consist of two 40-chip PCBs, though they were working just fine with the hardware and poolside everything was Ok. Now if you set the chips value from 5 to 40 in the BAT file for running the cgminer you should be seeing the correct local hashrate for the G-Blade, it should work just fine though we haven’t been able to test it as we do not yet have a G-Blade in our hands. Other than that the updated version is compiled and packaged with the latest OpenSSL libraries with a fix for the the Heartbleed bug. You can download the windows binary below and the source folder contains the files modified from the original source should you want to compile it yourself. Check the Readme file for more information on the list of supported frequencies and how to set individual frequencies per device for overclocking your Gridseed ASIC miners.
We have updated our windows builds of the cgminer 3.7.2 and cpuminer for Gridseed 5-chip GC3355 ASICs and you can download them below. Both versions include the latest official releases (cgminer source and cpuminer source) and in the source folder you can find our modified files for adding additional frequencies for overclocking if you want to compile from the source code yourself.
Both the cgminer 3.7.2 and cpuminer with Gridseed 5-chip GC3355 ASIC support the following frequencies that you can set to find what works best for overclocking the devices you have:
250, 400, 450, 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 706, 713, 719, 725, 731, 738, 744, 750, 756, 763, 769, 775, 781, 788, 794, 800, 813, 825, 838, 850, 863, 875, 888, 900, 913, 925, 938, 950, 963, 975, 988, 1000, 1013, 1025, 1038, 1050, 1063, 1075, 1088, 1100, 1113, 1125, 1138, 1150, 1163, 1175, 1188, 1200, 1213, 1225, 1238, 1250, 1263, 1275, 1288, 1300, 1313, 1325, 1338, 1350, 1363, 1375, 1388, 1400.
