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
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.
