We try to answer all your questions.
It may be impossible to anticipate every question you could have but we have some questions and answers listed on this page.
We will attempt to continue adding to this page in an attempt to make it the most complete question and answer page about mining. .
Set-up & Troubleshooting
Your account is already set up at HiveOS, and your rig is configured in your account.
Your Ethan starts mining automatically when plugged into internet and power.
Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Zcash, Zencash, VertCoin, Komodo, Hush, and many more.
Coins that have GPU algorithms like Equihash, Ethash, LyraRev, LyraRev2, and NeoScript are candidates for mining with Ethan.
The best way to describe the sound: if you're 10 feet away you won't know if it is on, or if your main AC is making the sound.
A standard home air filter device makes much more sound. If the TV is on you will not hear it at all from 6 feet away.
We use HiveOS and all mining is pooled.
Ethan comes ready to mine after booting. We start you with Zcash and you can experiment with different coins as you prefer.
Yes, definitely. We strive for robust performance, not riding on the edge. Minimizing downtime we feel, is better, than having cards crash when the room temperature rises.
Regarding cooling, when doing our tuning, we expect that the rig will be in an air-conditioned space of at least 74 degrees F.
We use Intel Celeron. The CPU is not overclocked.
We rate Ethan at 960 Equihash hashes per second. You will experience at least that. Most customers report more. Each GPU is different and your operating room temperature will limit the GPU speed if it is warm (over 75 degrees).
Not as we ship it. You could install a hard drive and install Windows 10. You would need to use different mining software than we ship. We don't have the expertise to support that kind of device.
It would be rare that you would need to use ether with your Ethan. They are not included to keep the price affordable.
We hope this list helps and we also added a link for each product using our Amazon affiliate program.
