CGminer ended up being the best miner for the job so far when it comes to using these chips. You have to use a modified version of it, however. It can be found here. http://cryptomining-blog.com/tag/cgminer-3-7-2/. The some of the usb drivers will need to be reinstalled as well. The post is quite clear and specific about that. Zadig program seems to be working well. Starting up the rig : Power down the rig. I use a surge protector and just flip the switch on that. It powers down the usb hub and all 10 miners with their respective power supplies. Start up cgminer. The cgminer .bat file should have this line of commands in it: " d:\cgminer\cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://sea.snicter.com:9327 -u USERID -p PASSWORD --gridseed-options=baud=115200,freq=750,chips=5 --hotplug 30 --usb :10 Pause " "Freq" option sets up the frequency of the miners. I found anything between 650 and 800 MHz work well. I almost feel that 800MHz is kinda greedy, so I'm being cautious right now and run it at 700-750MHz. Still gathering data to see which mode produces the most WU and the fewest failures. "--hotplug 30" means that cgminer will scan every 30 seconds for new mining hardware. "--usb :10" tells cgminer not to scan past 10 usb ports. You don't want it to scan and rescan your mouse. I just set this number equal to the number of the mining units. "d:\cgminer\cgminer.exe" is the location of the miner executable: it is wherever you have your miner installed. Once cgminer screen is up, flip the switch on the rig. Because cgminer scans for the new hardware it should have no problems detecting and spinning up all the miners. If you have to quit cgminer (to switch to a new pool or coin) you'll have to restart the rig again in the same fashion. Otherwise the software is likely not going to discover all of the miner units. Pretty much, if all of the units are not discovered within the first minute or two, you'll need to restart your rig - they're never going to get discovered. However, starting up the rig the way I described has never yielded anything but all of the mining units getting online and working practically immediately.
