{Troubleshoot}

Q: The hashing speed is lower than usual(eg. 100MH/s for ETH). / There are only 7 (or less) GPU works, not all the eight.

A:

  • First, please make sure if all the video cards are working. 
    • Right-click on the desktop, click “Open Terminal” on the pop-up menu.
    • In the pop-up windows, input command “lspci | grep -i vga
    • There should be EIGHT Nvidia GTX1060 video cards details shown in the windows

  • If there are not EIGHT Nvidia GTX1060 video cards shown, then maybe some video cards in the case loosened up during shipping.
  • In that case, power off the miner first, open the case of the miner to insert those video cards properly and tightly. 
  • There are some screws on the case of the miner.
