I'm running on a linux server (ubuntu 15.10) that is an old repurposed desktop with a 7-port superpbag hub using y-cables to three sticks.

Each stick is set to about .77 and I see this error with freqs from 250-350 (i don't touch the voltage in between).

The original compac stick has always run on this hub and it never has a problem.

Stick 2121 never initializes in cgminer anymore - the light goes white then green and then stays there.  Tried dropping it into a windows machine and no difference.  If i take my original stick (268) and toss it onto that same windows box - works great.
Stick 2125 generally plays nice but HAS gone off into the weeds once or twice.
Stick 268 has never had a problem on any machine / setting.

I have taken 2121 and put it directly into another USB port on the server and jacked the freq WAY down - nothing.  I've tossed it onto a windows machine - zadiag and all.  Cgminer never can detect it.

such a weird issue.

i had linux close to perfect for more then 4 months now the one stick.  When I mail it maybe sidehack can find out issue.
some eye candy  here is a block won  by me .  yeah it is an alt coin yeah it is worth about 25 usd a block but still it is fun.


I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Wasn't there going to be a no-holds-barred over clock contest?  The first OC contest was fun, I'd participate in one of those again.  I don't have the know-how to compete in an "ultimate" OC contest, but I'd like to see what other people can do!

So how about a Week to get ready. Single Compac / entrant, no holds barred on PSU, Heatsink Fans etc. Picture of Miner to be posted in this thread.

Mine to the old address so that Phil get's the benefit of the Blocks we hit  Smiley

24 Hour Run, Highest total Hash is the Winner.

Let's shoot for Friday, I think that would be plenty of time to get ready.   Wink

I think the contest should run 24 hours but the actual runtime needs to be limited to say 5-10 minutes.  Hard to do a 24 hour run with extreme cooling

yes, might be some modification, say, 8-12 hr continuous run and average speed reporting as a mark.
Somebody (AJRGale?) already reported some extreme readings for a few minutes.
I tried it before...compac gets tired of abuse after ~12 hr, but it could take it (to a degree) definitely longer than 10 min.

EDIT: OR, we can split the competition into two parts: sprint (10 min) and 5000 meters (>8hr, <12hr)

Since the TDP on these things is so low, why not put the stick in your freezer? Would'nt it work? If so i dont see why the stick could not run stable super overvolted indefinitively if the temps are kept low?

Hello! I received my 4 units today from the latest batch and just got set up following the gekkoscience.com/misc/cgminer-gekko-win32.zip provided in the OP. Settings are just running at the default 150MHz clockspeed and balancing between two pools. 

I'm running into an issue where one of the Compacs simply refuses to start mining- the green light comes on, I'm able to see it in Windows Device Manager and install the drivers using the zadig tool, but that's it. I've tried connecting via USB ports directly on three different machines (Win10, Windows Server 2012 R2, Raspberry Pi B with Minera + Compac mod) and two different powered USB 2.0 hubs with no luck. The other three Compac units work fine with any combination of machines/hubs, so I am thinking it may be something with this one Compac unit.

I noticed that the white light also doesn't come on with this unit anymore, although I'm pretty sure it did the first one or two times when I first plugged it in.

I have one of those USB Charger Doctor gadgets (in-line voltage and current meter), and I notice on the stubborn Compac that it reads 5.04-5.05V/0.06A upon being plugged in and idle/not mining. The other units that are working fine read 4.96-4.99V/0.19-0.22A when plugged in and are idle/not mining.

This is as far as I can get in cgminer:


Any suggestions?

Download this and install the driver  Wink

Or even better would be to run Bfgminer on a Mac and not deal with the WIndows crap

Check the voltage on the reset testpad. There's a resistor and capacitor in the right corner immediately below the heatsink, make sure they're intact.

What is the highest frequency that i can run these sticks at 24/7 without using a fan?

Since there isnt a temperature sensor on chip, any pointers on "safe" heatsink temperature range? Thanks.
