Chia Miner Upgrade Setup Guide
- Ensure you have a Chia Full Kit already running. If you don't have one, you can purchase and set it up from Bitcoin Merch Chia XCH Miner 9TB Full Kit.
Steps for Upgrading
Connect the Upgrade:
- Use the USB cable included in the upgrade kit.
- While your existing Chia Full Kit is running, connect the upgrade using this USB cable.
- Plug the extra hard drive into the additional port on the power supply.
Power Supply Capacity:
- The power supply included in the kit can support up to three additional hard drives per kit.
- After connecting, wait for approximately 30 minutes. This allows the system to recognize and integrate the new hard drive.
- During this time, the extra hard drive will become visible in the stats on your Evergreen app.
- It may take 1-2 days for the full size of the drives to be reflected in your Evergreen app. This is normal as the system fully integrates the new storage capacity.
- Monitoring: Regularly check the Evergreen app to monitor the status and performance of your upgraded Chia Miner.
- Expansion: Remember, you can expand your setup further, as each kit can handle up to three additional hard drives.
