1  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitmain Announces the Antminer R4 and APW5 Power Supply, Designed for Silence on: Today at 02:28:46 AM
I see in the description and the manual for the APW5 that there is supposed to be an ability for the user to ďchange output lines and fine-tune the output voltage.Ē Any ideas on how to adjust the output voltage? Hereís what the inside of one of my APW5ís looks like:

sure there is a term pot on the upper right side.

but I think you will not get it to go to 18 volts

maybe to 16

also protect the negative and positive cables they are a short danger

Is that pot something I can adjust while the PSU is powered?

I would be very careful doing it powered up.

That unit  has lots of power in it.  It has short a short hazard in the six  power points.

You could mod it  drill a hole with access to the pot  and mount a nylon sleeve

then the screwdriver  can not hit anything but the pot.

Bitmain describes the APW8 power supply (which is the psu for S11, T11, S15, T15) as a 16 - 18 VDC power supply.
I think that this means the controller board is able to control the psu output voltage fed to the hash boards.

then  buying an s11  for  512usd    using a coupon

https://shop.bitmain.com/product/detail?pid=00020190104175252854y6zoVRs606E1

would be a decent way to have a backup  for s15's

1249

https://shop.bitmain.com/product/detail?pid=00020190118193941282ccNL1qbE06A6

just run the s11 at low speed

https://shop.bitmain.com/product/detail?pid=00020190104175252854y6zoVRs606E1
   
 "SHA256   s11
 Reference power efficiency on wall @25įC, J/TH

  Normal ........ ..................Hashrate, TH/s...........Power supply requirement..... Watt / Volt
_________________________20______________1400/220________________70.00 watts a th
Low Power
_______________________16.00~17.50_______1024~1120/220___________64.00 watts a th"

it would be pretty efficient.   cost would be around 600 if you have a coupon

Video quality not so great but good enough, very nice set up there, Solar is a great idea, but batteries are the greatest liability of the system. how do you handle such a problem?

This is grid tied we don't need no stinking batteries Wink


1000 x 300 watt panels = 300,000  kwatts or 300 kwatts.  we mine with 40 kwatts of that 300 kwatts   and sell 260 kwatts  each hour of sunlight

so 5 hours on average full sun   is  19 hours you need to buy back


so in a day  we sell 5 x 260 = 1300 kwatts    then buyback   19 x 40 = 760 kwatts

the power company charges  more for the buy back then the sell   so   the 1300 we sell  earns about 800 to buyback

we do a push or break even with the power company  that acts as the battery system.

the power company  gets a gain  of 1300-760 = 540 kwatts a day

we end up with 40 x 24 = 960 kwatts  at no cost each day


You need a lot of space  for 1000 x 300 watt panels this warehouse has them.  It is about 200,000 sq ft

I will do more post and photos over time.

This part of the buildout is where we create a power demand  to justify the 300kwatt roof top system.

we are pulling 47kwatts at power company price of 11 cents  that is about  47 x 24 x 30 = 33,840 monthly kwatts at 11 cents = 3800 usd

we need to do this for 4 months  for about 16000 in power cost.  This is part of the startup cost for the solar setup.

say the 300kwatts = $600,000

 then add 16,000  power
and add 10,000    mining gear
 and 4,000 wiring structure = 

 630,000 to build the system

then the federal and NJ incentives are based on that number

most of the cost is for the panels the incentives make it viable.

THIS DOES NOT WORK IN MANY STATES

it does work in NJ

6  Bitcoin / Mining / New buildout with buysolar has entered stage 2. on: January 18, 2019, 04:24:47 PM
Buysolar and I have been mining  together since  2014

He built a solar array back in 2016

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1369207.0


and we caught the big runup in fall of 2017 very well

So we have been trying to find locations to build a new array.

We now have a spot that will have 1000   300 watt panels

that is a 300kwatt array  when grid tied it is about 300/7 = 43Kwatts 24/7/365

first stage was putting in 200th worth of btc miners
second stage was putting in 200 more th worth of btc miners
along with 6 gh of ltc miners.

I will post a youtube video soon.
7  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitmain will be releasing S15 and T15 on 8/11/2018 on: January 18, 2019, 04:17:52 PM
The real question is does the s15 psu fail a lot at 240+ volts

the m10 so far seems bullet proof.
the s15 does not seem bullet proof.

My new build out with buysolar is the biggest yet.  I could do 40kwatt "free"  plus 50 kwatt "pay"

So  right now we are up to  48kwatt and I want to continue to add more units.

3 to pick from  
S15
T15
M10

If I knew what the 240 volt psu issue really was about I would get s15's.

I don't know yet.

I will say  Apw3++  can run  with zero issues at 243 volt for months  been there done that.
8  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: (Review/Guide) WhatsMiner M10 33.0 Th/s, 2145W Bitcoin (SHA-256) ASIC miner on: January 18, 2019, 06:05:46 AM
Yeah
My gear is :
131 th are m10s
 40 th  are Avalon
 20 th are innosilicon
 230 th are used s9s most purchased from bitcointalk members some from eBay and just 3 from bitmain.

We will let it sit for a week and then tweak it. I think we need to add 4 more m10s . Slowly but surely.

All the s9s I have are set to middle speed at 1280 watts.  If I drop them to ultralow
They would take 780 watts I have 18 of them so that is a 9000 watt drop. Or 500 x 18.

That means that 4 m10s added net   9200-9000 = 200 watts

I lose 18x3.5 = 63 th dropping the s9 power
I gain. 4x 31 = 124 th adding the four m10s

 A 61 th gain and power cap goes up 200 watts.

So in two months we will be near 480th

Then
Drop the 2 a721s   Add one more  m10  a gain of 20th. 31th-11th = 20th maybe 100 more watch.

We would then be at 500th.  That brings us to April which is when the solar gets installed.

oh misunderstood you.  
good thing I always use same address.

just finished the second stage of out build out in Clifton NJ.

27 units doing  btc

420th btc

13 units doing  ltc

5.3gh ltc  maybe more like 6.3gh as I think I have  two units pointed wrong.

The 4 M10's are beasts  right about 131th and 9200 watts
10  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitmain will be releasing S15 and T15 on 8/11/2018 on: January 18, 2019, 03:57:27 AM
yeah it could be
a shitty switch
a crappy router
a bad wire

may not be the s15's

Do you use fios?

I just got back from a 60 rig build out and fios is a pleasure to work with compared to cablevision/optimum/altice

Fios seems to always do Dhcp up the line   ie
1.1
1.2
1.3
1.4
1.5
right to 1.256  Super fast to search it with angry ip, advanced ip etc  please to do a build out if it is Fios served.

I had an issue with the shipping address with Pangolin...

So you gave them an address say 123 Main Street.

You then said make the address 333 Broadway .

The first address you gave
The second address you gave.

I am asking because almost every seller wonít change addresses.
At least bitmain would not change
And Avalon would not change.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: My Avalon A921 is on the way on: January 17, 2019, 04:13:36 AM
Well i've tried so far both MM and Controller versions 01-03-19, appear to work, but miners randomly shut off and turn back on. Also they're not hashing anywhere near the 20th mark... I've also tried previous versions of the controller firmware no luck, just get connection refused with all of the others versions. Any suggestions? 4 hours so far trying to get the miners to do 20th... or something near that..

Dont bother.  Just use -1 setting and stop busting your own balls.

These simply are not that good.

I am pretty disappointed with them.

No one has them doing really good numbers.

I moved on. You should set -1 and look into other gear.

14  Other / Off-topic / Re: Suicide? on: January 17, 2019, 02:26:28 AM
Many years  ago in 1983 I took a lot of pills. Woke up the next day and was fine. I had been sick for two years and thought being dead was better then my life at that time.

I believed I would stay sick the rest of my life. I was only 26 and thought I could stay sick for 40 or 50 years.  So two days later those pills got me really sick I had to go to emergency room for treatment.

I was lucky the shots in the ER FIXED the overdose.  

In 1985 I meet my wife married her in 1986. Still married to her and happy my act of desperation back in 1983 did not kill me off.

I am close to 62 a few weeks more to my birthday and happy to be alive.

So my advice is do not try suicide,  find help make a phone call talk to a priest or a rabbi or a cleric.

Try finding a doctor.

One more thing I recovered from my illness in 2003.  Took 22 years for it to leave.  It is nice to be meds free and still in love with my wife.

KYC  
they have my home  address  
they have my home phone
they have my Social Security Number
they have a copy of my drivers license

my name is rare so rare  that I have never found any one in the world with my name going back to 1900.
lastly they have sent 50 packages to me since 2013

that is enough for KYC.

I placed an order but did not pay and I think they would have shipped to me.

I am considering buying a T15 maybe a S11  I will hold some money aside for  a S15  from someone you and I both know well. Wink
16  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [∞ YH] solo.ckpool.org 1% fee solo mining USA/DE 251 blocks solved! on: January 16, 2019, 11:40:25 PM

Ha-ha. You are serious? 100/100
What about 6000/100?
Once upon a time antpool find 1 block with 1 share
Randomnesss
I think luck increases significantly when -ck connect 60GH Avalon Cheesy

 what's funny? luck is by default is 100/100 aka 100% aka flat aka not random !

randomness and luck decrease as your shares increase, why do you think many pools are able to pay in PPS? simply because they know that in the course of x period of time ,every share you submit has a luck of 100/100 therefore they afford to pay you flat for every share. small pools can't do that as their 100/100 could be months/years and they can't afford to pay you till they hit a block. while large pools say those who have 33.333% percent of the total hash know for sure they will get something very close to 33.333% of blocks per day/week/month/year.

just because antopool found 1 block with 1 share does not mean you have the same chances.

every single hash can win = true

but it should take  5,883,988,430,955 shares on average if you gear has a diff of one

and most people just don't understand how fucking big that number is.
17  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: This is a reliability thread may not keep it open long. on: January 16, 2019, 11:18:57 PM
We donít have a lot of info yet but it looks like the psu prefers under 210 volts vs over 235 volts.

This could be a problem for USA SETUPS on 240 volts. As I type I am at 241 volts in my house.

Anyone with numbers for t15 s15 including volts feel free to post.

I looked at last night discussions and I am absolutely confused why there were still only some snippets of info and innuendo from SQRL. They almost feel offended that people are asking about dates and are, perhaps, upset(edited)

SQRL_LimsToday at 8:34 AM
No one is offended that people want an ETA. It is perfectly understandable why people are upset at the delays. They are working on getting a firm ETA.
Sadly Meat and I are not devs so we don't have the knowledge to provide better updates than we do, we are just support staff. The people who can provide a bit more info come in every now and then and some interesting information comes out through the flow of conversation and the search bar is an excellent function to keep on track of what GPUHoarder has been saying.

Yea, hoping to get something soon. My link clicks ----> purchases are sparse now in this market. So lots put off. I'll probably be looking at cooling prep for summer or just get one efficient unit or two if I'm able. Just a tough time after holiday and car issues.

M10 is top of the list, since the db's are pretty low on LPM/efficiency setting from philipma's reads. 

I am going to the Clifton solar build out on Thurs or Fri this week.

when we are done we should be at 400-425th  btc and 6gh ltc

All the s9's will be at the 1250 watt setting
the 4 m10's top speed
the t2t 24th turbo at balanced speed
the l3+ at stock speed low volts setting
the a921 at -2
the a721's at -1

I think we will pull about 46kwatts
we need to do 56Kwatts for 4 months
we will then do the solar and drop to 40 kwatts

I most  likely need 10-12kwatts of gear

say 5 more m10's

it will be nice to have  40kwatt free and up to 90kwatts if mining takes off
