Has anyone had any experience with the "Optiminer" optimization software for the Antminer S9 / T9 series? This is different from the Optiminer Zcash/Equihash GPU miner.

I wasn't able to find much information about the software online, except that it is produced by LSJ, LLC. I think it's supposed to make the miners more power efficient.

Any thoughts?

Use original firmware made by the company who created the miner you use.

Modified/Hacked firmware is not verified to or guaranteed to find blocks by any of those who create them.

If you lose a block due to their hacks or lose shares due to their hacks, their answer is "bad luck, you lose"

If you want to run some other than original firmware, then go mine solo to your own wallet, and don't risk these firmware hacks on mining pools and affect the other miners on the pool.

That is good advice, kano. I might be testing this software on some miners, mining solo so it wouldn't affect any other miners on a pool if it were to withhold block solves.

I just wanted to see if anyone had used this specific software before, since there seems to be so little information about it online.

Or use an opensource one like I did for the community XD

Doesn't mean it will find blocks ...
... or that you'll guarantee that if they lose a block due to your code then you'll make up for it ...
