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.

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

@orama,knc or any other person able to get me two artic I30 on monday, anyplace between trondheim and stocholm...
I am driving monday to colect my uppgrade modules, but now my local suplier of that fan is unable to ship before 23.10 and shipping takes time here in norway...

I have two other coolermaster cpu chillers hyper 212 evo, but now understand only the I30 models will be able to be mounted.
Noob on both bitcoins, and hardware instalations.
If anybody could help me get fans on my way to or back from stocholm on monday, will be highly apreciated!

Than you all for a supportive comunity .)

go for the a30 instead
http://i.imgur.com/0NI2wpV.png (thx to kronut)

You can use either, i'll see if Sam'll part with any, but either the a30, or the i30 should be fine mate.

We have both here, I just checked. I know i'm still in the office at 11pm on a Saturday, lame.

The only difference is the location of the holes, they changed halfway through due to the fact they ordered they world's available supply of one or the other of those at one point. Anyway you be sent multi-hole blanks, there wont be the protruding metal pieces to secure the plate in place, the screws are more than enough. They were purely there so the heatsinks stayed in place during shipping (yes i'm well aware the fans themselves didn't). Anyway unless you're planning on taking your miners off-road on safari you should be golden. Wink


Well my Norwegian provider cant send neither a or i30 before mentioned date. If you can let me buy 2 from you at office tomorrow,  know alot of my stress would go away! You know what is the earliest time i can pop in office and colect my modules?  Thnx for all help, both now and before.

I can't officially recommend that as I've seen the Nov Jupiter pushed higher than 1000w (~1050w), but KnC are still using the Coolermaster v850 to do that, and your PSU is rated at 1000w for 80% load so...

Entirely your risk, I'm not making any promises, as they aren't mine to make and whilst I'm yet again in the office, the person who'll be pissed if I agree to anything isn't so only thing I can suggest is be charming, polite and hope they are around when you turn up.

Office is largely populated 24/7, but the two girls handling the pick-ups prob won't be around until 9/10am. The girls will leave 5/6pm

I would just get a 1050w or higher- why mess around with 20-30 bucks for the PSU when the miner costs 5k+. Seems silly.

I would be happy to help you out by shipping you one, but im sure you know how expensive that it.

They said it should work. That's what I plan to do, just use a couple of $30 supplies. Not sure if I will need to connect their grounds though.

@ Bitcoin'Orama

just 2 questions if you have a spare minute.   Cool

1.  The 5-10 day delay for November orders.  Is it just one particular part you are waiting for? for example heatsinks ect. or are you waiting on a supplier that has multiple parts for your machine and will need assembly time when the parts arrive.   In other words, are KNC ready to ship as soon as  these parts arrive?


2.  Do you have any news on a possible scrypt FPGA,  or is this something that has lost it's appeal to the guys at KNC?  I noticed "alpha industries" that claim to be close to a type of scrpyt ASIC that uses off the shelf AMD gpu's.  What is your view on this if (a big if) it's genuine?


PS don't let the trolls get you down, so far so good with KNC! they are light years ahead of the competition in terms of customer service and product delivery.

They said it should work. That's what I plan to do, just use a couple of $30 supplies. Not sure if I will need to connect their grounds though.

I know you need 12v on the controller board for the two front fans, don't know if it's used there otherwise.  Driving my one module with a 12 volt supply and a BBB wall wart to the 4 pin molex, I ran 12v from the PCI-e plug to the 4 pin molex but not the ground as assuming the ground between the module and the controller board/BBB were connected via the ribbon data cable and I'd avoid a ground loop, but the module wouldn't communicate.  I then ran a ground from the PCI-e in addition to the 12v and everything was hunky-dory.  My first attempt was so as to avoid ground loops as ground loops can allow spurious oscillations, noise.  

I would say tie the extra 12v supply ground in to one of the 4 pin molex grounds in addition to it going to the new module.

But for a Jupiter I'd use 4 360watt supplies and a BBB wall wart.

Ahh, I figured it out.  You guys are making fun of me, aren't ya.

No problem. There's nothing critical delaying anything, but there were a few crucial design iterations to make that had to be mutually agreed upon. Marcus always said production would start mid-November, I always stated production would start mid-November as Marcus is in charge of production. Sam took that to mean delivery apparently. There' no issue with parts, just the guys developing the final revision (hardware, and software) wanted to optimize it further, so it's more ongoing performance improvements. The PCBs were sent for production the week before last (if you count today, Sunday as the beginning of week as I do, and not Monday). That's pretty much when the final design had to actually be chosen as it's pretty much in cement now as the board layout was ordered and are now being made. In any case it's not anything to worry about these are the ASICS sans margins that were there to get the device hashing first time. That said these run hotter and noisier, so as long as you're not located in the southern hemisphere you'll welcome the additional warmth.


2.  Do you have any news on a possible scrypt FPGA,  or is this something that has lost it's appeal to the guys at KNC?  I noticed "alpha industries" that claim to be close to a type of scrpyt ASIC that uses off the shelf AMD gpu's.  What is your view on this if (a big if) it's genuine?


It's not lost it's appeal, it's just, and that Payonix scam is a great example impossible to run simultaneously to this at this current moment in time. We can't afford to split the team and manage two entirely unrelated product offerings. The Bitcoin ASICs require the undivided currently. That said we've discussed various ways of tackling the alt-coin miner with a variety of really creative solutions you wouldn't expect, but the value it brings to you w.r.t. to the cost to manufacture and sell is not there yet with Litecoin. FPGAs are pricey per unit, and the approach we have considered is novel to say the least. In any event this irrelevant as there just aren't the minds free to devote to that project currently and KnC as presently KnC are hiring engineers for the Bitcoin projects currently. We've had three more guys join the team this week alone, including one welcome surprise for you guys entry I had a hand in, who will be joining us in the coming months, but for now i'm remaining tight lipped. He's a v.smart guy though, and gels well with the team! Wink


PS don't let the trolls get you down, so far so good with KNC! they are light years ahead of the competition in terms of customer service and product delivery.
 

I don't, I'm just curious to their agenda, prior to joining KnC I never used the ignore button, I do now.
