Would certainly solve the airflow problem.

And and since the control board has them tantalizing unpopulated pads for data connectors, filling them, getting some long data cable and then reuse old s7 cases for 2 s9 blades each...

I'd consider buying an S9LN, and then take it apart.

With the old S1s, you could take them apart and put a 200mm fan on each blade to cool them effectively but silently:

Do you think the same trick would work with the S9s, or would the boards cook themselves? The fans on these suckers are unbearable.

I didn't take apart my S3, but I did hack up the block erupters, the AM Blade (that one took all of 12 hours from landing in my mailbox to hashing at 35% over stock clock), AM Cube, S1s, S2 (I bought the kit, not the preassembled unit), AM Tube (Novak and I were finding proxy workarounds to its broken stratum before most people in the US even had theirs yet), New R-Box, U3, Gridseed pod, Garden AMV2, Avalon1, Avalon2, S5, X1, X3, S4, S4+... hm, I might be forgetting some. That's actually why I got into mining was because the hardware was fun to mess with.

Of course, almost none of those were bought new. A lot of it was gotten dead for repairs, or for the museum shelves.

Got my 2 s9s today, but one is not working Sad

Cannot find a manual on the website, was trying to do a factory reset so I can make sure it is defective.  Came on for 15 minutes, then went offline.  Temperature was fine, now just a flashing FAULT light.

Does anyone know how to do a reset on this model so I can try this before requesting a RMA?


Thanks in advance.

Wow that really sucks.  Have you tried a different power supply?

Yes, sir. That's the truth. I started back in the late 70s hacking on an Intel 8080A stuck on a breadboard, and just recently have come back to messing with hardware. The 8080 had a feature minimum size of 6um (6000nm), and to think that the S9 has a feature size of 16nm.

Yep, needed to make sure it wasn't the PS, then tried the method for the s7 to reset but doesn't seem to do anything.

I've just got to put this out there before writing anything more about the S9 I picked up today.
I dunno much about sharing audio clips but this deserves a listen:

That's a Batch 1 S9 as it ramps through unknown RPM levels partway through its first startup. 0:03 to 0:06 --- =|

Holy crap.  I work near Luke Air Force Base.  That's sounds like an F-16 on takeoff.
EDIT - that's why I have someone else host my miners.

Now I understand what some S7 owners were talking about - none of mine exhibited this behavior. Yikes.

Small bug if you change DHCP hostname through web interface without rebooting:

Code:
root@S9a:~# ps
PID   USER     TIME   COMMAND
  172 root       0:00 udhcpc -b -t 10 -A 10 -x hostname antMiner -i eth0
10046 root       0:00 udhcpc -b -t 10 -A 10 -x hostname S9a -i eth0

Toomim Bros received five Batch 1 S9s today. Three of them are hashing away happily at 650 MHz with no issues. They report 13.69, 13.85, and 13.82 TH/s.

The other two ("m6" and "m8") gave low hashrates when run at 650 MHz, around 8 TH/s each. Dropping the frequency to 625 MHz increased the hashrate to 11.5 TH/s for m6 and 11.7 TH/s for m8. Optimal hashrate seems to be at 600 MHz and 12.6 TH/s for m6 and 575 MHz and 12.44 TH/s for m8. Looking at the individual hashboards, it appears that m6 has one weak hashboard (#1) and m8 has two weak hashboards (#1 and #3; note that there is no #2, so the third hashboard is #4).

Power consumption at the wall is 1.37 kW (0.099 J/GH) for the S9 with 13.82 TH/s and a total of 5.06 kW (0.096 J/GH) for the other four totaling 52.58 TH/s. Power supplies used are a mixture of the 90% and 93% efficiency DPS1200FB types, with two hashboards per PSU on all but the 13.82 TH/s unit, which runs exclusively on one PSU without issues. The 1.37 kW is on a single 90% efficiency PSU, whereas the 5.06 kW is half 93% models, which should account for about 0.015 J/GH of the 0.03 J/GH gap in measured efficiency.

I will edit this post soon to add screenshots.

Did not get a full 24 hours on F2 as I wanted but close enough to show.   S9 worked great on yet another pool with it and had good hashing rate.   It is a very large photo for the site graph so not picturing in thread instead a link - http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m25/notlist3d/S9/f2_zpsqkffyf1z.jpg

So again all things looking good for the testing I have done so far.

from everything I have read so far (Phil @ NFW), the winning combo will probably be S9LN, IF they make it.
Should be 6.75-8.6 Th at 700-850W-would be a best seller by far.
Something like B2, but with less premium should be OK as well.

 8.6ish at more like 900w - just take 2/3ds of the TH and watt spec of the S9, then add a few watts 'cause you still have the controller and fans eating the same power.



 Anyone remember what process the 4004 used?

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!
