If you want a brand new installation with new partitions and formatting of the disk click on `Custom: Install Windows only` 15. Delete the old partition of the disk on which you want to install the windows. Be careful if you have attached more than one HDD disk. They are named drive 0, drive 1 etc. On the second disk if you are having some important data and you don’t want to be deleted, don’t clear
the partition on it. Or just detach it. 16. Click next and wait for the first restart after beginning of the installation 17.After the first automatic restart is very important to remove the flash drive, or the installation of the windows will start from the beginning.

When the windows starts the first thing you should do is to install the drivers of your computer parts.
1. Make your wallet
Go to https://zcash4win.com/ download zcash4win and install it. After you done and program run for the first time the blockchain synchronization will start. While the synchronization is running and before reach 100% your CPU will be used and may slow your windows process. After reaching 100% the CPU process will be back to normal. On i7 4790 processor took me around 6 hours.
3. Mining pool
Go to https://zcash.flypool.org/ and follow the instruction “How to connect” below. In your extracted miner you will find a couple .bat files. Choose one of them and set your configurations. You should write –server address, –user which is your wallet address given from the zcache4win(click in ‘own address tab’ to find it), pass which is not required just enter some random text and some additional parameters. See the How to connect section. Full example:
miner.exe –server eu1-zcash.flypool.org –user t1NF6yLUxAAttibU8mzfX86o8aWLcqF38DX.rig1 –pass x –port 3333 –cuda_devices 0
After that save and run the .bat file and after 10 second you should see the running mining proccess. If you want to check your statistic go to https://zcash.flypool.org/(your wallet address)
4. Video card settings
If you want you can overclock your video card to mine faster or you can down your video card power consumption and core clock to save power. You can down the core clock but you can increase the memory clock for example. It’s depends of what you want to do exactly. I advice you to test different setting and choose the best you can get comparing sols/s, card temperatures, card clock, memory clock and power consumption.
This is my home server and i’m trying to make it completely silent. Currently the only spinning fan is on my processor cooler. I have connected the fan with a fan controller to reduce the RPM to 1000 and it is incredible silent.
My power supply is completely silent. I broth the Corsair RM 650x and by the specification of this power supply the fan isn’t spinning at all, when the power consumption is below 200W. My entire configuration does not exceed more than 60 – 70W. The model of my processor is Xeon L5420 and by the specification the max TDP is 50W. That’s make my system super low power consumption.
As you can see further in my video the max temp of my CPU fan cooler with 1000 RPM is not more than 67 degrees and I will test the temps with that cooler which doesn’t have fan and I will try to make the system complete silent
The Stock clock of the Pentium E2140 is 1600mhz. Without any problems and issues it can be clocked above 2000mhz. In this video I have clocked and tested the processor at 1920mhz and 2140mhz. The game that I have tested is League of Legends and I don’t know why but the overall performance in the game was better when the processor was clocked at 1920mhz. You can also compare the fps in the video and write a comment what you think. Also I tried the game with more ram, but I couldn’t find any difference in the gameplay.
I tried to change the GPU with RX 560 and GTX 1070 just for fun but the mainboard didn’t recognize the video cards.
Operation system windows 10.
Installed windows 10 driver for the GPU X1650
