Out of 36 boards only 6 looked usable and of those only 1 is actually working, 2 power up but show completely dead dies and the other 3 do nothing but look good.

That sounds extremely worrying.

That is like taking boards from the trash container and shipping to customers...

Were the heatsinks only stuck onto the board by the thermal paste?

Yup, except now they can claim all of the bad boards as damaged in shipment and get reimbursed by the shipping co./insurance, All the while mining on the equipment they should have sent.

Brilliant.

Bullshit, that would never fly. No insurance / shipping company is going to cover stupidity. KNC will have to eat 100% of this loss.
bad thing is KNC loses nothing.....knc customers paid for the unit and the shipping.....and most units have probably been mined with so they probably paid for themselves 5x over, then they send us the bunk ones to kill time while the good ones are hashing away...then we they are ready they will ship out our BROKENJUP replacements. Weak KNC. WEAK!


Right they sent the non working junk for disorientation to kill time.

Smart, but evil.

That isn't true in my case. 13 of 18 ASICs work, albeit suboptimally. And with the carnage that was inside each case, it's amazing that 13 actually survived. I don't doubt that they were working ASICs when they were originally packed. And if they were used, they did a good job of removing any sign of dust.

These things were prevented in some degree in previous batches. What is happening to KnC? Did some employees left the company so quality control degrades so much?

Yes, rats were leaving the sinking ship, looking for new ships not sinking yet Smiley

anyway, I told them many times before that the heatsink mounting was bad, but this new design is basically a sabotage on the company.

What did you expect witha  company lead by a drunk?

And no, I'm not an abused KNC lover. Why do people feel the need to judge others on our decisions? I chose this option because it shipped fast and a refund was out of the question for me.

why is a refund out of the question for you? their ghs/btc is average at best.

The factory that produces the cards has been running over the weekend and we hope to have all the replacement cards sent out this week.

I love this, that factory has been running 7 days a week at least since January.  They've changed the board order page to allow for 500 per order and they show more than that in stock....

*** Latest news from KNC ***

All,

So last week we really messed up. We sent out products to our customers which arrived broken, damaged and quite frankly unusable.

So in order to fix this the best way we can. We are not asking for these products back from anyone who has received them already. We will simply assume that every card was damaged in shipment even if it arrived undamaged. We will send out to every customer who had a 3TH Jupiter or several already arrive, enough cards to replace their entire collection,

There is no way our customers should have to suffer because of our mistake in not properly securing the components during shipment.
Any effected box in transit is being cancelled by UPS and returned to us to be fixed by our teams,

The factory that produces the cards has been running over the weekend and we hope to have all the replacement cards sent out this week.

Rather than spending more time than is absolutely necessary on this we are going to take the approach of the famous Swedish Furniture maker and ship the box with minimal self-assembly. An instruction video is being made today and will be available later for all to see.
Again we are sorry for not delivering up to our own accepted standard,

Thanks

KnCMiner Team

Looks promising let's see how they go this round

If that's even true/real they are just stalling for time. How can you possibly know you've sent out all those boxes and not aware of parts and pieces falling off of everything. They are %100 fully aware of what's going on and what they are doing. Go ahead, be a KNC fanboy. Praise them, get that brown nose going!

IDK, as a someone who purchased a Neptune with freroll money, I am very happy with this solution.  Even though it is going to be difficult to set this up in my house, I really can't complain.  I'll make ROI cause I'll mine the shit out of some garbage alt and cash out proper (ala TAK), plus I get a spare rig to give to my friend or ebay.

Maybe taxes? I know I kept my Neptune orders because getting a refund wired to my bank account would have really messed up my tax situation.

So you worked for knc on the 3TH Jupiter and then quit after the shipping disaster?

Wow, don't even try switching that on, what a mess, there's no heatsinks on the chips either! Shocked
Maybe dropped by the courier? If the shipping box was damaged get pictures and don't throw it away.
If the box show no sign of drop damage the courier will probably refuse to pay for it.
You should refuse a damaged boxed item or at least sign for it as "damaged".

They could have given every customer a full refund, and triple the delivery, and there would still be complainers.
Some are just never satisfied no matter what the outcome.

BTW...  the cooling towers are pretty tough, and will cool just fine with damaged, bent fins and pipes, as long as the bottom plate makes good contact, and air moves through the fins. No way will you have to replace ALL of them, maybe 1 or two IF you have a working board for it.
A damaged one may cool a bit less, but remember, they like it better at 75C than 45C.
Those of you who have never had a KNC machine yet... Heating them to 75-80C will wake most dead dies...
and before you cry "bullshit" I'll say, I was given free equipment partially for this discovery by KNC, which is why there is such a large group of trolls that hate Phoenix so much. We also now have tuning suite which may help by LOWERING the voltage.
So, my advice is this: If you have a Frankenjupiter with dead dies; you have nothing to lose by trying.
Good luck.

Sorta. You'll get the second one months later, after difficulty has skyrocketed.

RoadStress says the difficulty isn't going to skyrocket and the SP30 will ROI in 2-3 months. Syke says the difficulty is going to skyrocket. KNC is now giving 3TH more free to all Neptune customers … they should receive it just about the time the SP30 ships.

What a bunch of whiners here.
