hi, 2 questions here:

can anyone share a link from where i can download that dev driver?

also, i heard that you need to plug some hdmi connector to make it work on risers. 

does ANY connector work? even this?

You’re not gonna find it on any legit site, only sketchy places, be careful what people link you to, as we’re a bunch of randoms and someone could easily sneak a virus acting like it’s the driver when it isn’t.


As for the hdmi connection, what it means is that the GPU needs to believe that it’s connected to a monitor, and there’s easier ways to do that, like just plugging it into a TV and leaving the tv on.

Just be a little careful, try asking on r/EtherMining for the driver.  


You'll want ones with a bit more of a casing, usually advertised as "HDMI dummy connectors", but the system still recongizes as display.

You need:

- the driver 470.05 (I have it and is using it, I believe it's very buggy because I've experienced some weird stuffs)

- pcie 3.0 and above connection to the GPU

- pcie x8 lanes or more to the GPU

- oh, and a dummy HDMI plugged in, or HDMI to VGA converter, I'm not sure if what you show will work

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)


none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general


Products I like:


Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:


Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)


be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:


Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:


Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
