It's pretty obvious that Bitmain will eventually release an "S7+" - already did most of the engineering for it between the S7 and the S5+.

 Has anyone actually tried running an S5 hash board on an S7 controller yet, or a S7 hashboard on an S5/S5+ controller?

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

How would it be possible ? S7 is not yet shipped.

S5+ blade works with S5 controller.

The picture of the controller board for the S7 says on the silk screen S5+ so it "seems" that they are identical. Also it has been reported that S5 & S5+ controllers and firmware seem to be completely interchangeable. As to cables someone must know the part number of the plugs?

So a good chance they are the same, but we need someone to take delivery to confirm?

I have a day one order on the s-7 so with luck 10 to 15 days time I will have it.

they say first shipping = 21st of sept  which means  I get it on the 24th

sometimes they are faster  so maybe I get it between the 19-23 of sept.

Or Oct 12 -14

"Shipping may start between Sept. 21 ~ 30 (if shipped out 10 days later than it, it won't be considered as delay )."

Hi, if you have 3 S7, you don't need longer cables, try only to flip the 2 outside s7. The miners could seen like this:

F=S7 Front
R=S7 Rear

FRF
RFR

Then, you will not need to have longer cables, but you will need to switch the front fan to the rear fan ONLY ON THE CENTRAL S7 and ready to run!

You will still need longer cables.

It would seem to me you could lash together two S7's with a single controller if you were to lay the miners on their sides, so that the "Top Side" were facing each other. Kind of awkward to wire up, but it shouldn't take any "long cables" to accomplish.

It would be interesting to know if the S7 cooling actually requires that the blades be vertical to work OK. While it's obvious what the "expected" orientation is, does it still behave well if it's laid on it's side?

point them upwards top to top that allows for  vertical and hot air raises.

stack them on a box fan  which allows for more air to help fans.  also if fans fail the box fan may save the day.

all my 18 pins cables are sold.  Cry
some 16 pins ones left.

I didn't expect so much interest.
I'll take 200 more with my next order from this supplier, approximately 3 weeks delay.


Still got some 16 pins left ill take 4 , or just wait ?. ....  btw


 i ordered one of your PSU plugs with PCEI cables ends best thing  i ever did, I m gonna order one or two more  this week coming and found some new PSU's to match it on Ebay and  they are new with a year warranty,  it came to day for 20  bucks free shipping .



PSU on ebay  http://www.ebay.com/itm/111681971957?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT 

your thingly


http://holybitcoin.com/product/hp-1200-watt-common-slot-psu-bundle/



 nothing at all against holybits site  but shipping all most the cost of a PSU.


 but i love that site .

let us know when you get more of those extension cables in stock those can come in handy I had an S5 controller board blow and I had stacked 2 miners on top of each other on 1 board but getting the wires in was very difficult to do with those short cables

also if you have 2 s-7's you can pull 1 controller off line and run 6 blades on one controller giving a spare  backup controller.

If you have 2 S7s and they are laying at the shelf and mining for you, and then one controller will go down, you lose half of your hashing power. If you connect all S7's boards to one controller and it will then suddenly go down, you lose all your hashing power.

Think about it.  Wink

Better is to connect all S7's boards to remaining controller in case of one controller's failure as an emergency measure.

J4bberwock, I'm interested in picking up some cables too.

Since you indicated it will be about 3 weeks till they're back in stock, I'll ping you towards the end of the month.

Was I helpful?   BTC: 18wQtEDmhur2xAd3oE8qgrZbpCDeuMsdQW   LTC: LbqLtkZ6wTSpwHHuv1tG4J7tHajGdH5QFB   DOGE: D9R5ySAP2DARpxuNKd7hN7ANmqFiGwB9G6

4)full
5) blank
6)full
7) blank
8 )full
9) blank

2 custom long with 4 stock short  this allows for 1 cat 5 not 2 and 1 unused controller

Thanks for the feedback, my girlfriend posted them without tracking, so I was a bit worried some won't reach the buyers.

I should have 200 of the 18 pins cables delivered in 8 or 10 days from now, if there is still some interest.

I have 50 of the 18 pins cables custom made in stock, and also some 16 pins ones for early S5s.
12" long, they were like 1$ each. if I remember correctly.

There are/were for the S5 watercooled case, and some other projects, but it seems that they can serve other purposes.

Edit on availability and pictures





Anyone has the Digi-Key Part Number of the cable connectors?

I´ve been looking like crazy on this section without luck:
http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en/connectors-interconnects

I would love to build these cables myself. Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

I don't have the part number, but you'll probably end up paying more than the $1 I'm asking for each cable.
I'm making no profit on those cables.
To be transparent, I'm paying them $0.7 + shipping + 20% VAT on part and shipping.
I'm even probably at a loss if you add the time for packaging and actual packaging.
