Got it, thanks.
I thought the ribbon cable had to be exact what is being used now. There are like 20 different variations of this cable and then it asks if you want 2 way, 3 way, 4 way, 6 way, etc.....how would I know. I wonder how Cyper ended up knowing which exact cable to get.

Thanks.

So there is no aluminum plate to go underneath?  Is what Phoenix said a concern?  What is safe to let the board rest on while hashing?



Well one would imagine that being an owner of a Saturn or a Mercury, i.e. the two purchasers these were directed towards you should have space available in your case...

I thought we could fill all 6 modules in a Jupiter?

Not officially...

Then I'll have some for sale if they don't work I guess.  Man communication comprehension around here is ass.

FTFY

#1 I have two open slots
#2 Their newsletter didn't say Saturn/Mercury only
#3 Their sales didn't deny me even though I never owned a Saturn/Mercury.

Should I repeat that?

Hindsight is 20/20.  I regret selling so many BFL's to raise funds for Nov.  I had no idea KnC was going to sell so many October units and take the diff as high as they did.  I've just made one mistake after another.  It's kinda depressing.

Should've just burned the BFL's, taken the Day 2 Jups and got out.  There is no self-control by the ASIC developers & resellers.  Everybody is out for blood squeezing everyone's nuts looking to see who they can take advantage of.  Only allowing payment in BTC, not updating news bits with proper info, not having a proper advanced RMA process, and not shipping when people say they will is icing on the cake.

At least KnC isn't as bad as BFL, Avalon, or ASICMiner.  I just wish companies were more open about how much they plan to ship.  That's the only thing I can give HashFast & CoinTerra credit for.

All you had to do was some simple math.

In one of my other threads we make educated guesses on difficulty increases, and so far we've been spot on.

If you think it's bad now, don't go look at the difficulty guess thread for the end of December lol..

Going along with what Phoenix said, does anyone have a module they're willing to part with for no mega markup? I have a mercury who would love a sister board.

The excel I made was spot when BFL was shipping.  There is no way you could've been spot on about KnC owning 70% unless you had inside info.

Anywho, I'm out.  I changed my mind about selling them here if I need to.  To ebay they will go.

I cannot remember exactly how many pins the control board connectors have, what is it 10 or 12?   All you have to do is look at what is currently in your miner.  That part is pretty straight forward.

The part that amazes me is the length of the cables that Cyper is using without signal loss. I'm no EE but I would love to hear how that works.

That's not a Jupiter. That unit has 6 modules, maybe he can call it a Venus or something.

If you look into the strings in the firmware, there's the name for the unit depending on the number of ASICs :
0 ASICs: 0_The_Headless_Horseman
1 ASICs: Mercury
2 ASICs: Saturn
3 ASICs: 3_Cerberus
4 ASICs: Jupiter
5 ASICs: 5_Five_Headed_Monkey
6 ASICs: 6_Hosted_Max_Speed

Aww, not a very cool name.

Bogart has 1 module reserved if I can't use it.

 Huh  Sad

If I were to make some extra 3-foot data cables (or other lengths), would y'all be interested in buying any?

But the whole thing is meant to screw thru the aluminum blank to the case it looks like.  Nothing to screw into under the board I guess...  Are those aluminum blanks hollow?  I'll have to be careful with the size of a bolt I guess underneath so it doesn't cross anything.

argh...  

You are better of selling them I think.  Phoenix or Special-K will buy them off you for sure.

Well if I can get them to hash I might as well try...

Lovely communication by KnC.
The KnC website is pretty well lacking, but the archive here goes back a long way, and it's all been covered multiple times. Just have to plop down and wade through lots of trollese!

No inside info, just lots of digging and putting pieces of the puzzle together.

Here's another capture of my mercury going at it. It spent about 10 minutes above 200GH, this was a capture about a minute into it.



These little buggers are amazing.

If those are two Jupiters, why not use them as is?

I see 2 control boards there.

I believe he said that certain modules are happier with certain firmware versions.  He has a different version running on each control board.

Some have the die0 issue and some don't.

Is that a doorbell on the table? Or fire alarm?

By using his head  Shocked
You just look at the original cables and make 2+2.

I don't know why, but it works and see no reason why it shouldn't. It's a data cable and we are not talking about 100m here, which again might be OK.

Correct. The 2 in front on the right are under-performing and are being exchanged in person on Monday.

Now the KNC units have been properly tuned ( i use to see over 400 on my kill-a-watt for a Saturn on 0.90 and now see barely 250), do you guys think we can use a CX600 PSU for a saturn with 4 boards, in other words a Jupiter ?
