Glad to finally see a review!  Now I need to decide if i replace the 4.1's with these, or just get 1 A6 to add to the bunch.

It's all going vary by person.  There are some big factors like electricity price.  The A6 is a very nice upgrade on efficiency, which means cheaper electricity bills compared to older gear at same speeds which is always great.

I don't think you can go wrong upgrading.  I still do have my 4.1's I will admit I will have a hard time parting with them, but someday I will.

So if you just lower freq it won't lower hashrate unless you also drop voltage? Or will it lower hashrate keeping same efficiency and lowering voltage is only way to gain better efficiency on underclock?

Trying to figure out if I can run these on my 900w 110v (1200w 220v) hp server psu's on 110 outlets

Also have a couple 1000w atx psu's laying around

You can also drop hashrate from changing chip frequency.  Seeing what it can do via frequency is on the list of to-do's.  Below shows it being set on miner:


As far as PSU as far as stock settings I would not use a 1000 watt PSU as it's pushing so close to that when running.   They recommend 1200 watt or more as far as default settings and I would agree with this.

But yes freq changing is on the to-do list for sure to add to this review.   Which has a video of sound, and a little about the free heat just added to 2nd post.

Yeah let us know.. I'm curious what kind of hashrate it can pull around 800-850-900 watts with just dropping frequency

Thanks for the video. It seems that A6 is a far better choice concerning sound levels. Did you have a chance to check dB from perhaps a android app?

Your welcome and I did try a few app's I did not list it in 2nd post as I have no way to verify how accurate it is.   But from 3 foot away I am reading around 58 DB.  Going to front of miner (side without fan) very close i get around 80 DB inches away from it.  And around 91 DB inches from back with the fan exhausting air.

So those are what I got but keep in mind that is with a Iphone and not confirmed on accuracy.

Question : to anyone that gets just miner does it come with all the plugs needed to plug into my own PI or do i need to buy one of there USB converters when i buy this miner ? .i have three PI's one banana pi and cubieboard pi . why spend 75 $ for another kit, when i have all i need but the miner Smiley .



@  Notlist3d  I load up both images one from your link and there off there site i changed  my Pcs address  from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.0.1 loaded it up then changed it and even tried your image i wanted to see both, the soft ware, hocked me in to wanting one more then anything , because all the freedom i have with there non-water down version of openwrt ) .btw to anyone with a openwrt router that's wants to use the router over the pI, there is a .bin for it on there FTP  Roll Eyes .I load it on my openwrt router i wanted to test it . it as nice as image for the PI .

The spending would be if you need a Raspberry PI model B or B+.  It is a very nice plug and play if you don't have a RPI.  BlockC did a great job on the fresh image with dhcp making it easy to setup.   

If you already have the Raspberry PI model B or B+ then you are set.  I uploaded the image so you can load it and have a very quick install.  With miner comes the usb adapter that connects to the Avalon6.  And if you are running more then one you can use the wire to go from one Avalon 6 to the next.  So it essentially can make a chain of them which is a nice option.

Hit the advanced button twords bottom left I beleive on main screen.  It will say switch to advanced mode or something like that.   It is shipped in like that I'm guessing to be pretty easy to install even for a new user.  But with one button click you can to go advanced mode.

But after you hit that advanced button you will have a lot more options, and the "non-watered down" version.  For advanced users you can do a lot more in this mode.

I meant it's not like bitmains watered down or striped out version,  my bad,  by non watered down it not watered down or striped out, after i hit the advanced button i couldn't think up a better way of putting it, sorry .

well  i can't wait to get it, but have to, i can see im gonna have some fun once, i buy one .

Nice review, will look forward how efficient it can be when underclocked, but out of the box it is weeker than S7's. How long have you waited for your miner to be delivered ?

Batch ones have started to ship i don't know numbers or any special information.  If your wondering how long it takes I would contact BlockC for majority of people, if in China it's Ehash to ask as far as shipping date with new order.   Those are the two official channels.  

As far as 3rd party or re-sellers I can't give you a good estimate as so many.  But again batch 1 is shipping which is good for those people looking to order.

Thanks for the video but the sound levels are impossible to believe. You sure you weren't blocking your microphone in the video.

It sounds silent. Its probably the world's quietest miner. It sounds like it makes less noise than an Antminer S3 and yet it has 3x the heat output.

And yet the miner only runs at 32C according to your screenshot.

32C seems more like the room temperature.

How long after your powered up the miner did you make this video? Maybe it was cold and quiet.

No I'm not blocking it at all.  It has been cold here though so not sure how much that effects it with it at 20 percent fan it shouldent.  I would describe it as two levels one is almost silent, and the other has a little noise to it but considering I have surround sound all around it has not really been as huge deal.   And I have enjoyed it's heat that is for sure.

Right now I'm testing a few frequencies it's taking a little bit longer testing to get more accurate numbers.   I might come back to sound after this.  But right now frequency to power is what I'm working on.

Depending on number looking at them I would suggest a possible group buy from BlockC and get it from the source so to speak.  They really do have good service so a group buy is not a bad idea on them.  Most of the re-sellers are getting from here and splitting up.  China is only different market.

The fact that warranty transfers if you sell them is amazing.  The good thing about BlockC is you know it is at start of 90 day warranty.  But there are some resellers also out there selling these that would come with a warranty and that is great compared to bitmain killing warranty if re-sold.

I bought one here from from this re-seller  http://zoomhash.com

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1256877.0


1x 3.65THs Avalon 6. Batch 2
Discount (code: Weareback): $-100.00 USD
Subtotal  : $1,349.99 USD
Shipping  : $49.99 USD
Total     : $1,399.98 USD   + 20% VAT in EU

I want to see  can it re-build for water-cooling or not.

interesting discount code. curious where you got it. i bought 5 and they wouldnt knock off any money. told me they would take 100 off shipping on the 2nd order or 5.

that and the new shipping means i overpaid $575.
