    Thank you buddy!!! Extremely easy and complete guide. I made LTC only mode
    work with a 12V 1A supply, I’m planning to connect it to my pc psu to try
    the LTC+BTC mode, but for now, it works great. Also, at the moment of
    running minerd.exe I got an error saying pthreadGC2.dll is missing, I just
    google it and put it inside cpuminer folder and everything work ok.

  3. avatar Eyeboot says:

    Yes sorry everyone it is upside down. Mentioned this before. Please make
    sure that you have them on the side so as to not block airflow. Also at the
    moment you have to create bat file for each miner you run. Unless you use
    wii box to controller to control the miners.

    Also bfgminer support has been added. That is great. It is better software
    than cpuminer for sure.

    it says on he wemineltc website that gridseed users won’t get any shares,
    is this fixed with the modified version of CPUminer?

  14. avatar Kloud says:

    Hey man, this video was really helpful, I just have 1 Question, I’ll be
    going on vacation soon and I got myself a few of these, what frequency
    should I set it to If I plan on keeping it on for a long amount of time?

  15. avatar Hikari says:

    that hash rate wont be accurate no matter how long you run it… normally
    wemineltc’s ‘worker hash rate’ is a few HUNDRED kilohashes over what is
    actually the hash rate… never go by the pool’s stated rate for it can’t
    properly judge speed cause its always ‘estimated’ of which it even says ON
    the worker’s page. . . you can only tell what your real hash rate is by
    looking at your mining program -.-

    Is there a version of VCP for Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit?

  17. avatar aldo guzman says:

    You have the product backwards. The fan can not get air from a flat table,
    it needs to be on top. 

  18. avatar Matthew Goerke says:
