Hey BitcoinORama, can you ask KnC to not mount the fans?  Is that something we could do on our own?

It might help them build faster and less damages during shipping.

It should be fine now. The foam was apparently stuck to the fan housing as heat was a concern before they ran the units for a significant period. No they know there is no issue with heat, the case barely gets warm, at all, but there is an issue with the foam creating friction and meaning that in transit the fan housing works loose towards the side/bottom of the unit and coming free, the foam is doubles, stacked upon each-other and adhered to the heat-sink instead of the fan housing alone. This seems to have resolved the issue.

But if it hasn't by all means keep KnC informed. You're all well aware teething issues exist with a product that was essentially created last Monday with chips in hand 24 hours earlier, and feedback only just emerging. You all signed up for a product prototype that would be in your hands as fast as possible, for sure no one will be screwed, it's just a learning process due to the lack of the standard 12-18 months of product refinement. Hence business to business.

This is unrefined, but works better than anticipated on purpose. No one can dispute these guys are talented grafters, with a strong work ethic, and we know this forum is full of competent geeks capable of communicating, and resolving as, and when to ensure hiccups are kept to a minimum. So let's work together on this to make this more powerful and efficient for everyone.

Make my day! Say thanks if you found me helpful Smiley BTC Address --->

Whatever you say about foam + packing peanuts, KNC should be using double or triple walled boxes for $8000 machines - bare minimum and no excuses.

So let's work together on this to make this more powerful and efficient for everyone.

Speaking of this... a few weeks ago I wrote at KnC support, I'm waiting for a unit, order #2xxx, telling them that on their site, in the preconfigurable list of pools, HHTT, which is the best pool around Wink is not an option... they promised to have a look at the issue, but it was never added.

I know that they've been busy with much more serious things, but maybe now that the units are starting to go out in the wild you can remind this issue to the correct guy...

TIA!

Woohoo! Right on Phoenix!

I ended up getting involved with KnC via Group Buy shares for Rounds 5 & 6 in my Miners Cooperative. Our miners just arrived and -Redacted- is busy trying to keep the magic smoke contained *inside* of the box.

Too expensive to host on Kauai, these 2 Jupiters are going to be colocated in Missouri near Google Fiber with bobsag3.

So if the  order queue is so sacred,  Why did they give a miner away for free?  When there customers who paid months ago waiting for theirs?   Is there something i missed?

I could be wrong on this, but I think they announced their sponsorship of the Life On Bitcoin couple a few days before they opened the orders.

Plus, the conference was a set date, and they would be fools to miss the PR opportunity. It's just one unit, shouldn't affect the shipping queue in any way, and shuts up a whole load of naysayers in addition to promoting their product.

I would have done the same thing. It's just good business.

Triple walled boxes (at least double) will make everything SO much better!

Got my jupiter, opened it up and 2/4 fans fall off so attached them.   Attached all cables and powered up.

It appears to be running but pool doesnt show any info and I can't find it on my network anywhere.   I tried using NMAP which found all my 'other' connected devices but not the miner.  

Tried a hard reset then rebooted and now I'm in the same place.  No idea how to check if anything is working properly.

ideas?

Does anyone who owns a kncminer live near Kano or cklovas, that can work with him for a decent/improved/overclocked..  set of drivers? I'd be willing to donate to kano/cklovas for them to work on this...

it seems to remember then on knc forum or irc  someone (maybe asic-k, but I could be mistaken) offered his mercury to ckolivas for a few day. 

definitely a good idea and of course I'm too more than ready to donate.

Where are they located?

regarding Kano I don't know anything

but ckolivas is austrlian and a well known linux kernel developer:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Con_Kolivas


We're both in Australia, but different cities. Kano is in Sydney while I'm in Melbourne. Can't do anything without exclusive access to the hardware, the source to their existing driver and ideally their communication protocol documentation. If any of you have received one of these, I suggest you ask KFC to provide their source modifications to the GPL licensed cgminer source code and they're obliged to provide it within a reasonable timeframe.

Primary developer/maintainer for cgminer and ckpool/ckproxy.

Well they follow the theme of figure it out yourself, like all ASIC companies. Mine arrived today without a manual, so after searching I found the manual hidden away in a news post.

https://www.kncminer.com/userfiles/file/manual.pdf

There it says it just acts as dhcp client and takes whatever IP it can get. If you have a router, you should check the DHCP server logs. That's how I found it. From there on it's really easy. Very happy with the miner, it's quiet, cool, faster than advertised and cheap in comparison with the rest.

Hope you can get yours to work
