Great! Post how you did it (include things like did you remove the old compound from the chips, what you put on, screw torque amounts, etc) so other people can do this as well.

The Ebay coolers are a bargain....

Would I be able to take the pumps off a working 400mhs Unit and install them on a 700mhs?


Probably. I did this once to test the problematic 700mhs unit I had, prior to getting the new units. I was never able to figure out the 700 unit I had that was hashing at 400 - 460. It wasn't cooling or power.

These units are very interesting. I'm impressed that BFL was able to produce such a decent unit (albeit hot-running and below performance expectations) given all of their failings.

I bought the bulk package for $75. I have extras now. They came with the compound on the HS and I removed what was on the units with alcohol. I screwed the back brackets on opposing ends until the flexion on the bracket was almost inverted. It's very similar to a GPU HSF. One issue I had was a bracket was missing the rubber standoffs, but I had some rubber I cut to put in its place.


Sorry, but I didn't take pictures and I sold the Monarchs I had.

I have two Monarchs that seem to have faulty temperature sensors and they stop hashing very quickly after bootup. Any way to fix the problem?

I have another with 15% HW error rate, any ideas on this?
15% error rate is not a big deal, a few engines are screaming but they don't really pull power. As long as it hashes well let it be.

As for the faulty temp sensors, are you sure the water blocks are running? Listen for the water at the radiator top, then check around to see if there are any signs of leaks around the water blocks/pumps.

I believe you are correct, sir.

I can hear fluid when I shake it, but I can't hear any fluid moving when I turn it on. I can tell at least one of the pumps initiates, but the copper blocks heat up immediately, some shares are accepted and then when the temp reaches 85 they shut down. Too little fluid perhaps. I have ordered new cooling units, I'll see if that fixes the issue.

Another issue, I have a 700gh unit that only hashes at 320gh with bfg 4.10 and 400 with BFL custom bfg 4.2. Could this be another cooling issue with one of the units shutting down?

I am having the exact same issue with my 700gh unit. What time s the other cooling unit u are ordering? Do you have a killawatt attached to see wattage draw? Mine seems to spike over 750 watt usage when I turn it on

Good news. Lightfoot was correct, the issue was the coolers. I replaced the two non-functioning units and the monarchs are now hashing along nicely. I am going to try replacing the cooler on the 700GH unit tomorrow.

I'm having major issues with my 750GH/s Monarch. When i plug my 500GH/s versions into my PSU, they work fine. But when i plug my 750GH/s model in, nothing happens. I have to turn the PSUoff and on again to get it working with my 500GH/s model. Please help!

I have a couple that are doing weird things as well, I will try underclocking based on Kuschelweich's post and report back.

Error rate is only this high with the custom BFL bgfminer 4.2. On 4.10 it seems better and hashrates are higher. However, I'm getting a "failed to find work for queue results" on one Monarch and the two with temp monitor issues do not show up at all.

I received one box yesterday and one today. The first 3 were packed well and are in good condition. They hash just fine. I haven't opened the second box but I anticipate the same.

Good price for these even if they are inefficient. Good seller and I would buy from graymatter again.

I used the BFL BFGMiner variant here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=759398.0



Were all 3 500gh or did you get some 700gh as well? Do they have 2 pcie power plugs or 3? The older ones have 2 I think.

Was seriously thinking about order a pack of these, but I'm kinda glad I didn't yet as the profitability took a huge nose dive down to like 15 cents a day  lol.

500GH, 3 plugs.

How do I run this without the GUI in windows? Is there a silent mode? TIA

You cannot do that at the moment.

For those that want to run this in the background, you can use SrvMan (link below) to create an automatic-loading win32 process. Set your settings in advance and make sure you check all the automatic mining options that you want so that the program just starts mining when opened. To change settings, force end the task, then run GGS and reboot.

http://tools.sysprogs.org/srvman/

Command-line would be nice, but I'm happy with this solution.

I am still running 1.1.7, it seems to work better than some of the later ones.

Thanks for the hard work Zawawa.

Based on your trust rating what stops you from reselling the source code?

You can search my posts and investigate why I was given a negative trust and I was given negative trust by some guy trying to blackmail my casino into paying him BTC.

I am now waiting for 1BTC from the buyer, if he changes his mind I would relaunch the auction.

False.

I am looking to buy about 1BTC for Paypal, already have a good trading history on here, traded with two sellers BurtW and cryptocap in the same manner before.

Willing to send the payment before receiving BTC.

Ignore the bad rep, some guy tried to extort money. Cheers.

False.
