Bitmain Antminer D3 DASH Asic miner review

Bitmain Antminer D3

I got Antimer D3 ASIC miner and I’m really happy about the quality of this miner.

Setup was really easy and performance was even better than promised (over 20000MH/z). Power consumption is about 1200W from wall with Bitmain 1600W PSU.

Antminer D3 X11 hashrate

I’m using CoinMine.pl as pool and it’s reporting average speed over 20300MH/s. Profitability has decreased significantly after I got this because of increasing difficulty.

Bitmain Antminer L3+ Scrypt Asic miner review

Bitmain Antminer L3+

I got 2 new Antimer L3+ ASIC miners and I’m really happy about the quality of these miners. Setup was really easy and performance was as good as promised. Power consumption is exactly 800W from wall with Bitmain 1600W PSU.

I’m using NiceHash as pool and it’s reporting about 950-1100MH/s with these 2 units.

First miner was turned on 5. September and second miner day after.

There is 4 basic boards and 72 chips in every board. One of these chips is damaged in one of these miners and that’s why hashing speed is only 3/4 from maximum.

How to setup:

  1. Connect all 7 power cables
  2. Connect ethernet cable from router
  3. Turn miner on
  4. Search miner IP from network
  5. Open miner management console in browser
  6. Log in (root / root)
  7. Change root password
  8. Optional: Change miner IP to static
  9. Open Bitcoin wallet if you don’t have yet
  10. Generate pool stratum address
  11. Change pool address (all 3) and use your BTC address as username (no need for password)
  12. Monitor performance and reliability
  13. Enjoy profits!
