I still am having good luck with my unit.  It has been a week since I lost power for electric company upgrade.  And unit has ran solid ever since then:


Very low amount of hardware error's.  And over a weeks worth of mining.  The interesting thing is no longer does HW errors show a neg number which was impossible.  So maybe it was just a glitch that once or it could have been from running 20+ days without issue.  Guess we will see depending on what this hw error shows in a week or two.

Still working great.   I am up to 16 day's.  Something interesting is once again it hit neg HW errors which is impossible.  So something with the math of HW errors goes neg if you run it LONG term without any problems, and have low hw errors.

I really do love this machine.  Hit 30 day's again.  Set it and forget it... that is a nice concept in mining.

That is really impressive, especially given all the problems people reported with the S5.  It's like they brought back the S1 bullet proof-ness for the S5+.  I hope their S7s run as smoothly.

Now if only my electricity was priced such that I could run any of these new machines...  Cry

I don't know if I got lucky or the ones that posted with bad results got un-lucky.  But this is honestly a rock solid rig.  I was worried with all the PCIe cables, and the warnings they give you.

But I have been able to hit a month of running multiple times in this thread.  It really does just keep running, I wish the power company did not turn off power for my reign for upgrades or I likely would have 60 day's on run time without issue.

I would not give my S5+ up right now.  I'm having amazing luck with a lot of hash for 1 miner.   If you get a good one this miner is highly recommended.

And I have hit over 40 day's of running and no issues.  Really is a great miner if you got a  good one very stable:


So far this is my record on the S5+ we will see how much higher I can go Smiley.

How come, with over 7Th and 40 days running (impressive!), your best share is only 592k?  My little 2GH nanofury sticks out perform that in a day!

It could possibly be a display error.  Some stats seem to show up wrong after around day 20.   They just did not intend for this machine to be on this long without down time I don't think.

It's not showing it now but if you have very low hardware errors and can get around 20 day's it's possible to get a negative HW errrors... which is impossible.  So I suspect some of the equations or display of status after long times of running can go wrong.

But I won't complain Smiley.  This miner just keeps on going which makes it easy as I have had to do nothing to help it mine in over a month.

I will second the statement the S5+ has been a solid performer so far.
The hashrate on mine runs 7.64ish.



I have never seen anything which displayed hashrate stay as close as this S7 does.
485x on the dot every second.


Transaction fees go to the pools and the pools decide to pay them to the miners. Anything else, including off-chain solutions are stealing and not the way Bitcoin was intended to function.
Make the block size set by the pool. Pool = miners and they get the choice.
