I highly appreciate 4 BTC offered by KnC as a compensation for late hosting (not for me - I don't use the hosting). It is very honest and makes customers loyal.
The late shipments (some by 6 days already) should be compensated similarly.

Where did you see them offer that??   I have two hosted day 1 units and have not heard anything except what they said in the news update.   I have received my day 1 shipped unit.   I've asked for a refund on the hosting or what my options were and on Friday they said that I can't get a refund and they are working on resolving the problem, but now we can directly associate loss of bitcoins to the delay especially since I have received my shipped unit prior to the others going online.

Thanks, I was starting at the latest post and moving backward and eventually saw the posting about the news...  If my 2 units get online today and they provide me 8 BTC,  that is fair.   Hope to see the machines running today!

Two things I noticed:

1. The miner does not support multiple pools by default, so you have to manually edit the /config/cgminer.conf and add 2-3 extra pools, I also added a line:
"failover-only" : true,

2. The miner does not have cron service installed, they rely on a service "monitordcdc" to frequently check the current for 8 VRMs on each board, if the current is too low they will restart the cgminer process. I'm not sure of the effectiveness of this approach, but my miner has been restarted by this service this morning

Order#12** "in progress" paid June 5th.  Are they giving btc to reg orders?  Meaning non-hosting customers?

No, if you read the news update, they are giving BTC to the hosted customers that were delayed in getting their rigs up and running.  People received their devices on the 3rd / 4th have already made about 4.5 btc (at least thats about what i've made)

I dont think replacing those artic cooler fans is going to do anything for preventing those caps or VRMs from burning out. Maybe adding or reorienting case fans may help if those components are overheating (are they?)

HUGE DISCLAIMER  I'm going by pictures posted not my own eyeballs looking at the PCB's personally!

I am just guessing at a possibility, let me repeat, I am just guessing at a possibility.
(^^ this will not prevent a tangent but I tried ^^)

The latest pics show the explosion seems like it happened on a secton of bare PCB right next to a chipcap.
The component looks intact.

How could this happen?

A FEW of the possibilities are:
Loose metal on PCB.
Poor PCB etching. (why would it wait to explode if so?)

Metal contamination could also account for performance issues and failure seen by others.
The explosions might only be happening at locations where there is high current.
The performance issues might be happening in low current locations.

Where could the metal come from?

A problem with the solder paste or application process.
A solder reflow problem. (cold solder joints)
Metal dirt on case leftover from manufacture.
Metal dirt on heatsinks leftover from manufacture.
Self tapping case screws or standoffs might create metal shavings.
A serious mechanical problem with a machine that makes the PCB's.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE OPEN THE CASE JUST TO LOOK
But if someone has a unit and already has the case open:
They could use very bright light and a magnifying glass to look.
Move the light to view with different light angles and shadows.
Look at the heatsink and edges of the case for metal shavings.

Up until I saw the last pics I was thinking faulty component issue or a programming quirk overloading good components. Now I'm not so sure. A spark away from components is usually caused by foreign objects.

Did I mention that I am just guessing?
I think I did mention that I am just guessing at a possibility at least once.

I'm not sure of the effectiveness of this approach, but my miner has been restarted by this service this morning

many thanks this is very valuable info.

johnyj can you provide simple steps on how we can add "failover-only" pools to our cgminer.conf

that would be a great help for those who are not familiar with linux.

I just spoke to KnC on the phone. They said that one of my Jupiters marked as "shipped" since Friday means that it is ready at the factory but has to be sent to the office for pick-up. I was wondering about the status since I got no tracking # or email from them.

Regarding the offer of a free month of hosting and 4btc per Jupiter, I can only imagine how another company might have handled this.   Roll Eyes

just got my Saturn in the door 30 min ago. no apparent damage. fans were where they are supposed to be.
started it up and only one board was working. fan was also stopped. I switched the connection cable to another slot and reconnected all the other cables and it seems to be working now.
cant change the pool details from the interface. everytime I press apply, it just reverts back to the original.
using firmware 0.91 for the moment until the fire treat disappears

I consider last week highly unprofessional, and told them so. You can't state in your ToS that it is a b2b model and then deliver more than a week late. And I think a kind of compensaton is in order. Not only in form of a few bitcoins or cashback, that would be pretty much pointless. I want a voucher for 50% off on the next gen devices/november units for every unit which should have been here by Thursday/Friday last week.

actually,  I will see your unrealistic gripe and raise an insanely mad request and demand that KNC give all of us DAY 1 customers our own ASIC mining company for our troubles

it is the only compensation that seems fair at this point
