I think it is necessary to overclock Antminer V9 in 2018. Since Antminer’s are running in losses we have to make changes in this cheap device from Bitmain. Antminer V9 is a Home ASIC machine to mine Bitcoins for $160. It is used for mining the SHA-256 algorithm with a maximum hash rate of 4Th/s for a power consumption of 1027W.

Let me remind you that overclocking will void your 6 MONTHS WARRANTY FROM BITMAIN. In the worst case, your device may destroy due to overheating.
Overclocking is the process of configuring hardware components to receive extra performance from a CPU or GPU. The process gets heated because of other components such as RAM and increasing frequency of a component will frequently increase its thermal output in a linear fashion. Furthermore, One and only demerit of overclocking is heating which can be cured by increasing less amount of frequency and using external fans for cooling purpose.
Bitmain is a private company based in Beijing, China founded by Jihan Wu and Micree Zhan in 2013. The company manufactures high-grade ASIC chips and bitcoin and altcoin miners. They also operate one of the largest pool known as ‘Antpool’. Bitmain is criticized because of dominance over cryptocurrency mining. Last year in 2017, Bitmain generated $3 – $4 billion in profit.

Instructions to overclock Antminer V9
Let’s get started with overclocking Antminer V9 4Ths
- Note down current hash rate and temperature for security purpose.
- Go to advanced settings if your model does not support it then go to the link http://192.168.x.x/cgi-bin/minerAdvanced.cgi(use your device’s IP)
Advanced Setting Tab.
- Now increase frequency by 200M
- Select options available for frequency
- Furthermore, See the change in hash rate and temperature
- Lastly, If it’s stable and working then Enjoy.
