Here we adopt 12 graphics cards and TB250-BTC PRO for this crypto mining hardware installation.
Don’t connect any graphics card to motherboard before finishing OS installation; just install OS with onboard graphics.
Note: Or install OS with only one graphics card connected to PCI-Ex16 slot, other steps are same as below.
Please update BIOS to B25DF710.BSS or after version where mining mode default is enable.
The BIOS Download Page as http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=884#download
Follow Windows instruction to finish OS installation.
Turn off the computer; install all graphics cards properly (please refer to the hardware installation page).
Change video output to the graphics card connected to PCI-Ex16 slot (This step is for installing OS with onboard graphics only).
Power on and install motherboard drivers and graphics card drivers.
Reboot and start to mine.
Please install every graphics card into the riser cards (as the picture below) respectivelly.
**The power cable for riser card and power cable for graphics card must come from same power supply uint.
**The USB cable of riser card must not be connected to any the USB port on motherboard.
Connect 8-pin power connector and 24-pin power connector to the power supply-1.
Connect 4-pin 12V AUXPWR 1 and 4-pin 12V AUXPWR 2 to the power supply-1. Also, connect SATA cable to HDD or SSD.
* These two AUX power connectors are BIOSTAR unique design of graphics card power enhancement.
Connect PCI-Ex16 riser cards with graphics cards installed properly to the PCI-Ex1 riser cards installed on motherboard by USB3.0 cables.
Connect power cables to graphics card and PCI-Ex16 riser card. 6 graphics cards powered by power supply 1, another 6 graphics cards powered by power supply 2.
Follow the instruction below to establish a short circuit between No. 15 pin and No.16 pin on the 24-pin power connector of Power Supply 2.
And the last step, turn on the power supply.
**The instruction is designed with 6 Nvidia GTX1060 and 6 AMD RX470 graphics cards as example.
Get ready to make money with BIOSTAR Crypto Mining Motherboard!
To keep the mining rig operating stably, please install the system in an environment where there is a sufficient volume of air available to cool your rig. To top it off, you can use two industrial fans to make the air convection much efficient.
*The graphics cards connected to PCI-Ex16 slot must be powered by power supply 1.
*Each power cable from power supply is limited to be connected to 2 graphics cards or 2 PCI-Ex16 riser cards.

• Exclusively compatible with all BIOSTAR Mining Motherboards* & select BIOSTAR Gaming Motherboards*.
• Converts one PCIe x1 slot into four USB 3.0 PCIe connectors, so you can connect up to four USB PCIe riser cards**.
• Gives you the flexibility to use existing hardware to start Crypto mining, or increase the number of graphics cards in your current mining rig for maximum profitability.
• Powered by 1x 4-pin Molex Peripheral Connector.
The Cooler Master Riser Cable PCIe 3.0 x16 Ver. 2 – 300mm comes revised for maximum flexibility and durability. High quality plastics grant increased cable flexibility and strength for the tightest PCI card installations, while the heavy-duty shielding prevents electromagnetic interference from degrading signal quality. A stainless steel PCI slot adds extra rigidity to the riser to support even the largest and heaviest graphics cards. The IPC4101D compliant PCB provides the best in class performance under high thermal loads and cable flex than any of the non-compliant competitor riser cables in the market.
The IPC4101D compliant PCB provides the best in class performance under high thermal loads, cable flex, and moisture resistance than any of the non-compliant competitor riser cables in the market.
EMI shielded 28/30 AWG copper wires ensure minimal signal delay and electromagnetic interference-free operation.
Gold PCI pins allow maximum electrical conductivity with a rated 110g of insertion force per contact pair for high durability.
UV resistant ABS casing protects cable connection points from rough handling.
