I have two brand new units of this power supply.  I'm using one on an AntMiner S5.  I've read that voltage should never read below 12 volts for the AntMiner.  If I run it at default 350 Freq I am reading 11.97 volts at the DC connectors with the AntMiner running.  Is this close enough?  The reason I ask is that I tried the other new power supply on it and it has the exact same reading 11.97 volts.  If I drop the frequency to 300 both power supplies read 12.01 volts with the AntMiner running.

Here's the readings I'm getting:

AC input to power supply (with the Antminer running as the load) 119.6 volts  - Kill-A-Watt meter shows about 5amps AC being drawn and I believe about 600W.
DC Output at 350 Freq: 11.97v
DC Output at 300 Freq: 12.1v

So would the 11.97v be acceptable since both supplies give the same reading?  Or should I be looking for another PSU?

Thanks!

you are close enough.

what it means is freq 350 is a little too much  but not enough to really fuck your numbers up.

-5%  or 11.7 is too low.

there is a really good support thread wait for link.

this has lots of info on voltages for an s-5

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.
