Is there an option I can pass when running the miner? ( CGMiner / BFGMiner )

How does one get the temperature of a USB Miner? ( In my case BitFury )

  • Have you considered using an external device such as an infrared thermometer? Feb 4, 2014 at 7:49
  • @GregHewgill to my understanding this USB Miner has a temperature sensor already, I just wanted to know how to access it Feb 4, 2014 at 14:29

If your device has a temp sensor it will show in the API output and in the Text User Interface that is default when running at the command line

  • I don't see it though, is there an option to pass to display this information? Feb 4, 2014 at 17:41

    if you don't see it your device probably doesn't have a temperature sensor - most usb stick miners do not
