Re Neptune (and Jupiter):  I haven't read through all 780+ posts in this thread, but does anyone know if you can take one of the neptune boxes and wire it up to a standard host?  Windows, Linux, etc?  Are the connectors between the boxes and the controller board USB, or something more esoteric?

I have a few boxes/cards from neptune's and Jupiter's at home, and if I could hook them up to random machines at work and control them using someone else's power costs, I'd love to.  But, trying to get the controllers to work on a corporate network would be a pain.

Thanks.

Short answer, no. The Neptunes and Titans had chips with hundreds of cores per die. So something has to go out and poll those cards and do lots of work.

For that, there's the controller board: The Beaglebone on it is just housekeeping, the real work is done by the FPGA on the side (this is also what blows out). It goes to all the cubes, all the dies, and does the get nonces and pull data from the engines.

So you need the controller, at which point you might as well plug it into the ethernet at the wall. Which if you are trying to do this at work is the #1 way to instantly get fired and another job (it's pretty easy for an admin to see you connecting to a mining pool)

that's why the admins ARE the miners

Hi Blake!

PM me an email address and I'll send you a link. I need to find a hosting site that will not just roll over so I can put this up, anyone got any ideas?

I don't know ...gen tarkin may allow you to move your stuff with his site for a fee...hell, he may even tweak it ..if it sits around and stares at him on the site for a bit

probably a dumb idea..but all i have

Does anyone know where one can still get a controller board and a power supply (that's probably the easier part)?
I have one Titan cube, but the rest is missing.

I wrote you a message - you did not answer.
I need a controller working card for Neptune.
How much does it cost, including sending to Europe?

My question here is if anyone is actually using their Jupiter right now. Can you show me a picture of its controller board please? Is It really the same as the neptune controller board?

I own 3 Jupiters, 1 Neptune and also had 1 Titan.  the Titan controller board died so I replaced it with one of my Jupiter's controller board, and recently the Neptune's controller died and again replaced it with one of my other Jupiter controller boards.  All controllers are same.

If you still want pictures let me know and I can take some for you, but they're all going to look exactly the same.

the only difference is that some have 4 ports and others have 6.    Not sure if all have the signatures of the dev team printed on the bottom but that was a thing too.

Fantastic!!! I'm so glad that knc did that. Well that really opens things up for me, thanks for sharing. No need for the pics, thanks again.

HEY LOOK AT THAT! WE'RE IN THE ALTCOIN SECTION! NOW WE CAN TALK ABOUT ALTCOINS AND LITECOIN!

WE'RE FREE!!!!

in the meantime, we're back on the air here. If you need help fixing your Titan or fixing your Neptune (as long as you promise to only mine altcoins, I won't tell....) feel free to post!

Cool ...not sure you how you did that...now for your next trick ...see if you can get permission to move SWEDISH ASIC MINERS for the same reason from the moderators in that it is a DEAD AND NO LONGER CONTROLLED BY AN OP THREAD....make a case

likely shot down, but worth a shot imho


anyway, thanks for your efforts
