My R4B3 shows 1 board running at 605 freq and one at 505. The 605 runs hotter (70's and 80's) while the 505 temp stays in the 60's and 70's. Will there ever be an option to overclock my underclocked board? Changing the freq settings on the advanced page does nothing

My B2 was set at 550 and then the firmware would then auto adjust.  When you ask to calculate the est. income, is that with both boards working or just one like so many of ours are?
LOL, funny because it's NOT funny!   Cheesy
 I wanted to grab another R4 today but didn't have enough coin ready to go.  Guess that's the universe telling me to wait until B4 gets back from warranty repair before getting another one!

Whatever you do, I firmly advise against buying bitcoin via Coinbase credit or debit card.
Not only they charge 3.99% fee on top of their ask price, but cc will also add a $20 foreign transaction fee to it.
I have no idea why, maybe because bitcoin is kind of foreign currency (and not a commodity) according to cc.
$ 640 purchase had $50 fees or 7.8% total

I assume you didn't use a USD credit card. The foreign exchange fees are charged by credit card companies. If your credit card is not based in USD, it's likely you were incurring an exchange.

The three month warranty is a deal breaker for me I will have to pass. If a year warranty parts and labor was offered no problem.

Keep hoping........

Bitmain has approximately zero reason to extend the warranty or otherwise improve their terms. Maybe they'll reconsider if/when a batch takes a week to sell out?

I tried searching myself: Who is mining with two R4's powered by a single APW5 PSU inside the United States?  I currently own a single R4 batch #2 and APW5 PSU.  I am interested in purchasing another R4, however I will need an electrician to install a new outlet for me.  I assume a 220V?  I'm curious what all is required.  I assume a C13 power cord to a specific outlet, but unsure of the outlet type?  I'm not sure where to search further.  Thank you in advance.  Ps. My batch #2 R4 quit hashing on one board after several days, but after flashing to a new firmware image from the bitmain website and rebooting, I have not had any issues since.

The warranty is now 180 days, which is a half year.

How can i confirm that? the sales page still reads 90-day.

Thank you. I might have stumbled onto the general sales page then. I was expecting 180-day, and will be disappointed if less otherwise.

Yeah, one might think that an increased warranty period would mean the company in question believes their equipment is more reliable and hence fewer returns...  Tongue

with coins shifting upwards I can get the 7.5 model including shipping for 1.111 btc

I purchased 2 coins last week at 800 each.

so 800 x 1.111 =   $888.88

pretty tempting .  Warranty is 180 days.

I think I will buy it.

One thing to consider is this gear will do .1 watts per gh  while the new t9 will do .121 watts per gh.

I put the order in a few minutes ago I have a bit of time to decide.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
