...annnnd it's paid for itself, USD-wise.  33 BTC earned in just 91 hours.   Shocked

A bit more to go to break-even BTC-wise yet.

Well, I just earned 50+ BTC last night solo mining.  Smiley



What did you use...
Oh and congrats...

Are you just using a computer running the bitcoind server for this or do you actually have a pool software (like stratum-mining) going that only you're using? I didn't figure the bitcoind server would be responsive enough to handle the requests from the ASIC's in a timely manner, but I don't really know much about that system.

Tomorrow the machine will be put on balcony, which is -15 degree for the moment, is there a way to remote login to web interface?

Do you update the firmware while mining? If you stop the cgminer, how can you make sure it will not be activated again by scheduler?

Not a good idea dude. Air will condese and turn into eatter inside your avalon  - too big temperature difference

Sadly, mining to bitcoind directly does not work well.

I use eloipool with bitcoind.

on which lucky pool you are?

Well, uh, I didn't mine BTC the whole time.  Some of the time I was [solo]mining TRC, which I then dumped on an exchange for BTC.

Could you explain what about it doesn't work well?

You can mine any coin that use double SHA-256 for hashing.

I achieved OC by modifying /etc/init.d/cgminer.  Look for the --avalon-options argument.  The last number in the string is the clock speed.  Default is 282, I changed mine to 300.

--avalon-options 115200:24:10:45:300

At 300 it gets around 71.6GH/s, the fans get a little louder, and Temp3 rose from 42 to 43.

For you the easy way is probably to use an SFTP client like filezilla to download the /etc/init.d/cgminer file, edit it locally, and then upload the modified version.

http://filezilla-project.org/download.php

The trick to activate SFTP mode in filezilla is to enter sftp://192.168.0.100 for the host address (or whatever your Avalon's IP is, the sftp:// prefix is the important part.)  Login is the same as used for the OpenWRT WebUI.

thanks, i found another way around.
i went to system/startup
i disable cgminer process and gave my modified cgminer command to local startup window and i reboot Wink
i get the OC, BUT
6m 48s
70164.06
0
11
6469   <-- accepted
211     <-- rejected
11       <-- HW fault



rejections and HW faults are too high!

update: i use --avalon-options 115200:24:10:42:300
and i get:
8m 44s
72245.02
0
13
8870   <-- accepted
0        <-- rejected
12      <-- HW fault

this is better!

Hmm, I see better efficiency when using those parameters too.

Do you know what the 4th parameter is, and what made you decide to change it to 42?

The network hash rate is REALLY picking up this weekend, we're at 10 blocks per hour almost.  If this keeps up we'll see 6m by next difficulty change.

Where is a good place to follow the hash rate?

I try to be respectful and informed.
