While it is no longer stocked by Bitmain itself, the product continues to circulate via other sellers and as second-hand wares from members of the mining community. Operation The Antminer S5 will automatically look for IP addresses that are available for use. This is done via a DHCP function that gets straight onto your actual network and bypasses the typical issue that some miners have of using a box static IP address. The device comes fitted with an intuitive control panel that is easy to use. You simply need to start by logging in with your root username and password, the latter of which you should change as soon as you can. Then, you simply need to enter your pooling information through the IP address login and you’re good to go. It’s a very brief setup process and once you’re done with the pool configuration panel, you’re ready to mine.
It is fairly simple to use and operate the S5. You can check on the conditions of the miner easily and set automatic shut down times for when the miner hits a particular temperature, or easily alter frequencies. You can also use it to upgrade firmware for the miner. Power and Power Supply As with most mining hardware, you will need a standard power supply unit to run the Antminer S5 properly. The miner draws up to 590 Watts at around 115 Volts and can run on virtually any ATX PSU that can supply enough power.
