Yes, you can overclock your Antminer E3 but we haven’t tried this method of overclocking on Antminer E3. I think the method would be similar to other Antminers such as Antminer S9 and D3. Bitmain provides settings to change the frequency of Antminers under Advanced settings which is available in Old versions.
Why overclocking is very dangerous?
Overclocking is a very heavy process which triggers main processor or graphics controller where systems such as RAM are also involved. This process goes very heavy resulting in more power consumption, fan noise and increases the amount of heat produced by your ASIC miners. ASIC miners are very efficient but they lack in cooling, mining with ASIC miner requires more power due to this heat increases. After overclocking it may not be possible for Antminer to handle that amount of heat and may result in losing your device.
- Increase the PSU.
- Use External Fans or AC to cool your device while mining.
- Increase limited Frequency.
WARNING: OVERCLOCKING CAN VOID YOUR WARRANTY
But still, if you have decided to test this process on your own risk then let’s get started with the process of overclocking Antminer X3 220kh and increase its profitability.
How to overclock Antminer E3
We can access advanced settings directly by http://192.168.x.x/cgi-bin/minerAdvanced.cgi ( you have to change the IP address to your miner’s actual IP address). Increase your frequency by 100HZ/s and see results.
Before starting with your process of overclocking you should be aware that overclocking is not safe, it will void Warranty of your device. Overclocking is the process of speeding up the performance of the CPU or GPU by configuring hardware, and this process involves other components such as RAM which increases the amount of heat produced by Antminers. So, take care of your PSU purchase higher Watt PSU.
