My .stick address hash rate is going to drop by half for a little bit, I have to swap out its Y-cable and the new one isn't here yet.

I tried one of these (5V) to power a hub with a single stick+fan. With rare exception, couldn't get the stick to mine. http://www.meanwell.com/mw_search/SP-150/SP-150-spec.pdf
Went back to the 3 amp wort that came with the the hub and everything fired up hungrily.
Is there something about this power supply's specs that stand out as to why it 'may be inappropriate' for this purpose?



What specs are on the wall wort?

If it is 3amps. And 12 volts you need a 12 volt psu not a 5.

The hub comes with a 5 volt 3 amp wall wart. Measured no load DC output voltage 5.23.
The meanwell PS is 5 volts 30 amps. Measured no load DC output voltage 5.35.
Seems the hub just doesn't like the power supply. I'll keep playing with it.


Did you use a barrel plug or solder wires to the hub? If you used a plug, could it be the wrong size? Like using a 2.5MM on a 2.1MMplug.

Then again, if the hub has some type of over voltage protection, it may see the 30 amps as being to much over 3 amps and kick in the protection.

It looks like you mis-spelled earlmostick.  Wink

Postie came bearing gifts.  Man alive these things do not like USB3 ports--nothing but "no valid hashes for over 10 secs, attempting to reset" garbage.  No issues with USB2.  The 'y' cables are on the slow boat so nothing exciting for a while.

.earl

I have 6 running at freq 240 on  USB3 (Orico A3H10 hub) with Y cables,
waiting on "usb doctor" to tune them more.

a power supply can always be rated more amps than whatever it is youre powering. it will only draw what is needed.

I'm wondering if it has to do with my USB3 ports not belonging to a hub, but being part of the PC.  Possibly the PC is expecting signaling to put the port into charge mode, whereas the hub is dumb and just does it regardless

I am going to try to add this to crytoglance's link as I have limited access  he is added and is the fortieth member.

I was under impression we had him added already.

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.

I have 2 compac sticks in a usb3 hub that is plugged into a usb3 port and I don't seem to have any problems.  It's running on a Win7 machine.

same here.

5 sticks in a USB3 hub (using Y cables so that helps at 240Mhs).

the default 0.9A of a USB3 port should be enough to get you to 230/240Mhs.

All of you guys with multiple sticks. I feel like I should be increasing my amount to > 1!

At least I have a 7-port powered hub (2A to each port).

Has anyone else found running less sticks results in higher shares?

When running 2 sticks @ 300MHz initially I had a 1B share and several 10M+ shares. This was for about 2 weeks.

Since running 6 sticks @ 250 MHz best share I've had has been 3M. This has been for the last 2 weeks.

Has anyone else found this?

I'm wondering whether its because my internet speed isn't great (only 2MB) and the hub is connected to an old dual core DDR2 PC with 4GB ram. Also whether the MHz would make any difference?

I had an 11.6M share in 24 hours to win the highest share competition running only 1 stick @ 300MHz the weekend before last. I haven't had a share near that with 6 sticks since Undecided.

It's 100% chance/luck, there is no correlation.

More sticks = more hash = more chances at a higher share.

Thanks for reply and sorry for delay, I've been tinkering Wink. Yes that's what I thought, what's happened doesn't seem like that though Huh.

I'm now running a test. I have 3 sticks on old DDR2 pentium dual core 4GB system with Anker USB 3.0 powered hub and 3 sticks on newer DDR3 i7 quad core 8GB system with Orico USB 2.0 hub.

All are running @ 300MHz.

Let's see how they do Smiley. I'm guessing the faster pc should help the sticks to a higher share because of data transfer rate but could be wrong, I usually am Cheesy.

I wish I would have kept 1 Orico usb hub back in the day.  They really were amazing quality and not a ton of hubs are metal.

Right now I'm using powered hubs I had in project area.  They were low priced and good for the money.  So I cant complain to much.  I would highly suggest looking into a RPI.  The fact of running on almost no electricity is nice.  Also they hold price pretty decent so one day you can sell the RPI if you needed money.  Just a lot of projects use them so keeps market up.

Out of curiosity what is our current percentage of hitting a block? On average?  I'm just curious I realize it's low but wondered in overall scheme.  But nice compacs are great running on low electricity.

I completely forgot about this! I'll have to remind myself to setup a stick or 2 to this pool.

Now since this is a monthly thing, do I have to restate I'm connected? or can I set'n'forget?
