ZCash: ethOS w/ Silentarmy – 2x Speedup Hashing On All GPUs (important)

Are you mining ZCash (ZEC) with ethOS ? Good.. there is a new update that will increase your hashing speed x2 times, how ? ethOS implemented silentarmy miner and everyone can upgrade to that and i am about to show you how to do it. If you are not mining ZCash you should consider this (for now),  right now it is much more profitable than ETH, double the profit.

This is how i increased my hashrate from 150H/s to 270H/s for my 6x R7 370 4gb rig

Follow this steps to upgrade ethOS 1.1.4 with silentarmy (due to the speed of incremental improvements of the zcash miner, you can insert the new miner into ethOS 1.1.4+.)

  1. Reboot your rig
  2. Once booted login with root by typing : “sudo su” and use your password or default password “live“, if you are remotely when asked “logins as” type “root” and then your password.
  3. Enter the following command in terminal: cd /usr/local/bin/ && disallow && minestop && rm silentarmy && rm sa-solver
  4. Then wget && wget
  5. And chmod +x silentarmy && chmod +x sa-solver && allow && show miner
  6. The miner will start automatically
  7. If you encounter any errors during the upgrade use this command sudo ethos-update reupdate
  8. Done.

Here you can find the difference based on my Asus Strix AMD Radeon R7 370 4GB rig
