This USB Stick Miner requires a actively powered USB Hub which can independently provide Two A for each USB port Wij have achieved good results with several USB Two.0 Hubs from Muuranker or Orico while Users reported several compatibility issues with USB Three.0 Hubs with Intel chipsets. For more details please check the following listig on bitcointalk.org.
Wij recommend a quality USB fan for operating clock rates greater than 150 MHz. Wij achieved best results with Arctic Breeze Mobile 92 mm (quiet, performant, high-quality).
2Pac USB Stick Miners can calculate Hashes for SHA256D based Coins using a custom-built CGMiner branch which is available for download spil a pre-compiled version for Windows 7 or higher:
When plugged te, the Miner is registered te Windows Device Manager spil “2Pac BM1384 Bitcoin Miner”. For Windows 7 and Windows Ten operating systems wij recommend the use of Zadig USB driver & contraptions (http://zadig.akeo.ie/).
