Do you know if there is any way to under-clock with the newer auto-tune firmware's?

People say no but when I change my browser adress on my autotune S9 from http://192.168.1.102/cgi-bin/minerConfiguration.cgi to http://192.168.1.102/cgi-bin/minerAdvanced.cgi  I do get a secret page where I can change my frequency.

In case I want to underclock I would not worry too much and could try the 550 setting..

But If I would like to overclock to 675 frequency, and I don't like the heat and noise it creates, how do I change it back to the original autotune setting?

Anyone tried to overclock using this trick of the hidden advanced page , and how did it work out ? And how did you get back to the autotune mode?




Did u try it?
Did it work for u?

I tried this on my new ones (order oct del dec) and it did not work, I could not find such a page, even loaded an img of flash and tries to dos list directory's, could not see anything on my units :-/

interested to see if some are coming out unlocked

anyone explain me what means that ?

connectors are required, with three going to each of the three hashing boards and a further PCI-E direct to the controller. While you can use two smaller PSUs

is it necessary connect to correct?

i can't get it how to connect exactly

Hi all -

Received a batch of 14TH/sec miners recently - had a few observations:

1)  Fewer chips on one side of the board.  Chips running at 687Mhz, so suspect they hit a power limit.
2)  Most came shipped with the July 2017 firmware, not the August 2017 release - although a few have a November 2017 release
3)  I bricked one while doing firmware upgrades - got distracted, and somehow managed to open two web pages into the same box and managed to start the firmware upgrade twice.
4)  Much to my surprise, some of the APW++ (the cheaper $105 units) are temperature sensitive.  I'm cooling with outdoor air now, and some would not power up miners until they were warmed up.  Had a few start at 40F, more at 50F, and a couple that required 60F+ to boot up a miner.

Question:  I have a 32GB FAT32 SD card, and tried unpacking the s9_fix_upgrade.tar.gz files to it and power cycling, but no joy.  The unit remains unpingable.  Reset has no effect either.  Any suggestions?  Bitmain Parts does shows the controller as out-of-stock.

When using two power supplies, just make sure that each hash cards is powered by the same one.  e.g.  Hash card 1 & controller by power supply 1, hash card 2 & 3 by power supply 2.  Do NOT mix power supplies on a hash card.

Not their APWs... the paper clip trick generally only applies to generic PC power supplies, not specialty ones.

Only Bitmain knows that.  Watch their twitter feed, sometimes they give a few hours notice.

Holy SCHNIKES!  The secret frequency page URL is true!  I just added "/cgi-bin/minerAdvanced.cgi " after my s9s IP address.

However you get a pop-up warning.  Hence, my question is... what does that "It will take about 3 hours on search frequency before mining!  Are you sure?" I have never seen this before.

This is my 1st brand new factory sent Antminer - on any of the half-dozen used ones I have had, I understandably never had such issues, due to others having already over/underclocked.

Please advise.

Same here.
I can get to the advanced settings page but I don't want to touch it as there's no "Auto" in the drop down list to change it back to.
My frequency in the drop down list is set at 550.00M and with that setting the boards themselves are at 631.95, 639.50 & 640.36 freq will all hashing at about 4.6 Th/s.
