Thanks I just did that rite before you answered and it seems to have picked up a little speed and stabilized some. Ill run it all night like this and see what happens. I think I may be pulling to much power off this breaker and that may be causing errors. I keep seeing the lights dim  Shocked Im going to move to another room.

while it's not very safe, it should not matter too much as most switched power supplies will adjust for a big swing in input voltage
After moving to another breaker and running for a few hours today Im still seeing crazy HW errors. I opened up the case and checked all my connections everything is nice and snug.

Avalon mini batch 2

Firmware 20130821
--avalon-auto
1h 20m 6s
60-53GH/s
2617 accepted    85 rejects  HW 850
Frequency 375 Fan1 4080     temps 27 49 47

32% HW errors is crazy high. Any suggestions?

Whats the difficulty setting at the pool your mining with? You are using the Diff1Shares as your total shares right? 850 might not be as bad as you think.

Mine is at 2538 HW with Diff1Shares at 388259 so 388259+2538=390797 and 2538/390797 = .65% if I'm doing my math right.

Well, you currently have 1.6% HW errors. Thats not horrible at all. You need to run it longer to be sure though. 23 minutes is not much data.


(HW / (HW+Diff1Shares))*100 is the formula to find your HW error percentage iirc

So I think, based on what you said, I have been calculating the HW errors wrong. Thanks for clarifying.

Its a huge thread. Buried back in those posts you'll find it. Smiley

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=254331.0

Might be useful. Its adds a HW error field to the stats. I have the tab open with that page but have never set it up yet.

Lol it really is huge I have been reading through it for a few days just trying to learn as much as I can. I just got the unit yesterday and because of all the great info here I have saved myself the embarrassment of asking a few simple questions (minus this one  Grin).

Again thanks for all the feedback. I have to say, this is one of the best forums I have had the pleasure being a part of. Everyone (for the most part) is so helpful. On top of that I dont think I have ever seen a thread that has someone spewing hateful/homophobic remarks.
Thanks again.

Later versions of the firmware include the HW% field, so my little addition is only useful for older versions.

My mini uses the exermax 850w Gold PSU can I push to 450mhz? 
I am getting low temps at night around 40c at 409mhz with 80% fans but Im wondering if its safe to push the unit that hard I am just trying to see the limits of this machine..
I am not seeing hash rates over 55gh/s below 400mhz on the firmware Im running (20130821). I have tried a few different versions but I do not see the same results that others post.
I would love to be running at 345mhz but I cant even break 55gh/s its more like 50gh/s. I tired this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=240810.msg2552362#msg2552362 with no luck.

At 409mhz I peak at 70~gh/s but its more like 65-60gh/s with HW <2%


This pic is with --quite not 80% fans. I have seen temp 1 as low a 7c but hovers around 11c mostly.
Sorry if this is not the place for this. I did see a post in this thread yesterday that had a few links to OC threads but I could not find it again today.

The only numbers that are important to you are the ones on the pool, disregard all numbers you see in the miner stats.
I think your hardware increase when heat goes up to much, and thats when you are reaching low results..
stick to 375 on --avalon-auto i think is best. (skip quiet).
I get 60gh on mines.. but i restart cgminer automatically every 4 hours. It keeps hw errors low. (0821).

Huh?  Are you serious?  Do you even have an Avalon?  or even a hat?  I am raffling my HashFast Sierra too.  only 0.1BTC for a chance to win!

P.S. The Sierra does not exist yet, but even if it does and even if I have one, I will just pretend to pick the name of a bitcointalk member that I created myself or a friend of mine who is in on this scam.

Ill give it a shot at 375mhz on --avalon-auto for a few hours. How do you scheduled cgminer to restart every 4 hours? Ill have to read back through the tread for that one. But the 65-60gh/s is what my pool reports at my current settings and at 1.5% HW. When I remove the --quiet the machine runs cooler so I assume my errors will drop with the temp.
Thanks for the feedback

Avalon mini batch 2

Firmware 20130821
--avalon-auto
1h 20m 6s
60-53GH/s
2617 accepted    85 rejects  HW 850
Frequency 375 Fan1 4080     temps 27 49 47

32% HW errors is crazy high. Any suggestions?

Don't use --avalon-auto on your mini.

I run the same CK firmware version
--quiet
1d 6h 42m 38s
63GH/s
47954 accepted 116 rejects HW 13643
Frequency 400 Fan1 2400 / temps 20 49 42

Stick the mini in a cool place, in your basement or a cold room (if you have one), or if you are like me and you live in Canada or Alaska put near a open window or door with the fan facing forward so it can pull the cool air through it.

System
Scheduled Tasks
Add these two:
0  */3 *   *   *     /etc/init.d/cgminer restart
0  20  *   *   *     /sbin/reboot

first one, will restart cgminer every three hours.
second will restart entire miner every 20 hours..
This way i have realised to keep some of my miners online better (those on wifi tend to lock and go m.i.a after a while).

Would you guys mind reviewing my miner stats? I have been a little concerned about the higher number of hardware errors. Is it too high?

Thank You

DH(%) is the stat to look at.  It is calculated as HW / (Diff1Shares + HW).  Given that --avalon-auto tries to keep it around 1.5%, I'd say yours is doing better.

Is there a way to set the fans to a minimum and keep it there regardless of the temperature?

I set fan at 40% but when the temp raises the fan starts to spin faster.

My goal is to turn avalon into a silent heater.
