This tutorial is intended for the FusionSilicon X1 which is a Lyra2rev2 miner manufactured by FusionSilicon. The FusionSilicon X1 is a mining machine that supports the Lyra2rev2 algorithm, all coins based on Lyra2rev2 algorithm supported, such as XVG, MONA, VTC. For Lyra2rev2 mining, its hashrate is as high as 12.5GH/s, whereas the power consumption is only 1040w.
We will take FusionSilicon X1 as an example to show settings and troubleshootings which apply equally to other FusionSilicon models.
|Hash Rate||12.50 GH/s ± 5%|
|Power Consumption||1040w ± 10%|
|Supported Coins||XVG, MONA, VTC etc.|
The following background knowledge would be helpful to use the miner:
- Lyra2rev2 on BitcoinWiki: https://en.bitcoinwiki.org/wiki/Lyra2REv2
- Lyra2rev2 Coin List: https://coinguides.org/lyra2rev2-lyra2v2-algorithm/
- NiceHash: https://www.nicehash.com/
You need to decide what currency you what to mine and what the pool you want to use. You need to choose one of the mining pools and create a mining worker account in that pool. Also, it is recommended that you have a look at the “Help” section of your mining pool.
In our tutorial, we will use the NiceHash for Lyra2rev2 mining.
- Connect the miner to the LAN port on the same router which your computer is also connected to. The miner is stand-alone, your computer is just needed for miner configuration. And a PSU > 1200w with 6PIN x 10 needed for the miner.
- This is how you will receive the miner from EastShore. Check if the cables on the miner are connected tightly (they could loosen up during shipping).
- There are three hashboards, each with three 6PIN ports on it, and a black 6PIN port on the controller for a total of 10 6PIN ports. All the TEN 6PIN ports will be used for mining.
- Get your PSU ready. There should be TEN 6PIN connectors on your PSU, all the TEN 6PIN ports on the miner should be connected to your PSU.
- Connect the ethernet cable and power cord, then, miner connection is DONE.
- Make sure you connected the miner properly. Then, power on your PSU.
- Wait for 1~3 minutes. (The miner needs about 1~3 minutes to initialize itself. Please wait patiently.)
- Scan the IP address of your miner: The “Network Protocol” of the miner is “DHCP”. The IP address will be different under different networks. You can refer to this blog for scanning instructions: How to find out the IP address of your crypto miner
- Log into the miner configuration page: Run your Internet browser, such as Google Chrome. and open the IP address you just scanned (For example, 192.168.1.82). The password is “fusion“.
- Sometimes, you may not be able to log into the configuration page immediately, please just wait for about 1 minute, then try to log again.
- Then, the “Homepage” of the miner will display.
- Click the “Miner Configuration” tab at the top of the page for mining account settings.
- Before setting your mining account, you should first take a look at the “HELP” page of your mining pool to know the mining URL of your pool.
- In our test, we used NiceHash for Lyra2rev2 mining. According to its HELP page, we set our pool URL of the miner as:
Pool URL: stratum+tcp://lyra2rev2.hk.nicehash.com:3360
Pool Worker: 32E……….XM (Your mining ADDRESS)
Pool Password: 123123
- After setting your mining account details, save the settings by clicking “Save & Apply“.
- Wait for 1~3 minutes, then the miner will reload the mining settings and start mining with the mining account you just set.
- You can check the mining details on the “Miner Status” page. The mining speed showing here will be refreshed every 5 seconds.
- You can check the working details of three hashboards in the “Miner Status” -> “Modules” page.
- If your miner works perfectly, you don’t need to change anything else(including other settings in “System”, “Network” tabs). If you don’t know what you are doing, don’t tweak it.
- Now, you are all set up. Let the beautiful machine work and earn money for you.
