In this guide, we will explain the process to install a custom firmware on Antminer D3. The process involves flashing of a new firmware image.

About Antminer D3

custom firmware antminer d3

Antminer D3 is a product from Bitmain for mining X11 algorithm coins such as MUE, CANN, DASH, DPC, and ONX. It gives a maximum hash rate of 19.5Gh/s for the power usage of 1350W. 

Antminer D3 Specifications

  • Manufacturer: Bitmain
  • Model: D3
  • Hash Rate: 19.5Gh/s
  • Power Consumption: 1350W
  • Dimensions:130 x 190 x 320mm

Furthermore, Antminer was released in October 2017 and currently, it is not profitable to mine with this ASIC Machine. In addition, if power consumption reduces and hash rate increase this device may be profitable. So let's make it profitable by installing an Antminer D3 custom firmware.

What is overclocking?

To receive extra utility and performance from a CPU or GPU the process of overclocking is performed. Overclocking is the process of configuring the hardware components of the CPU and GPU. Generally, this process is done by increasing the operating frequency of the device. It includes some other components such as RAM which makes this process more heated up. So one must take some precautions while performing this process. Furthermore, overclocking is very risky and should be done with a proper knowledge and in the worst case, your device may destroy.
