That makes no sense.  Why would KNC says "We expect to ship to Batch 1 pre-order customers this week and to Batch 2 pre-order customers before the end of the month." in their latest posting?

https://www.kncminer.com/news/news-94

So nobody knows a real situation with litecoing hardware from KnC?

Batch 2, October 30th. Expect it no sooner or you will be disappointed

 Because they're so used to feeding us crap as facts that they don't even care to proof-read their cut-and-paste lies anymore.  Classic.

i got screwed over with super jupiter, i want to do something about it please help

 You should try selling it to xstr8guy for what you paid for it.  He'll probably jump on a deal like that.


Excuse me? Do you think I'm a KNC shill or something? Of course I wouldn't pay $10,000 for 3THs now and certainly not another miner from KNC. There are far better options available today.

 No but you did say you were "quite satisfied" with your SuperJupe.  Thought you might be interested in bittawm's.  There aren't better options to get 3TH by Monday.

Ah, buyer's remorse. Sorry, but there's nothing you can do. I'm quite satisfied with my FrankenJup. Why do you feel screwed?

 And you are experiencing retrospective rationalization.  Why DONT you feel screwed?
 

I received an assembled FrankenJup and  18 bonus boards. I'm currently running 30 boards and they work just fine although I have them underclocked a bit and getting ~4.5Ths.

Yes, they were a hassle to get working properly and I do have a few bad boards. But I've been hashing with them for a couple months at much lower difficulty than the Neptunes will. I was very disappointed when they announced the bonus Neptunes after I converted my order. But I think I'll still generate more BTC than Neptune customers.

 After seeing the specs on the shipped Neptunes, I am sure you will make out better than the Neptune customers.  You got a lucky break, many customers just got broken crap they have to RMA.

can anyone tell me how loud they are?

is it, ridiculous loud like a cointerra box that sounds like a vacuum cleaner running 24/7?

or is it whisper quiet like the jupiter? or somewhere in between? like an avalon?

noise is going to be my biggest limiting factor moving forward...

It's very quiet: Noise is about the same as Jupiter (Neptune has one more Fan, so 20% more).

My new worthless prediction (I'm batting .000, lol)...

There is some very compelling evidence that supports this hypothesis. But the most glaringly obvious is the single PCI power connector. They're not so stupid to design it to handle 420w. But they were compelled to squeeze as much hash out of each chip that they threw away common sense.

Remember "under promise, over deliver"? Yeah, not to so much anymore. The new motto... "We deliver dangerous crap because we're cheap bastards."

1 month ago (after I saw the picture of the PCB with only one 6-pin power connector) I wrote an alarming email to Sam directly. Sam replied within one hour, and replied he would discuss the issue with the developers.  
My guess is that they have added a second power-connector (on the opposite side, so you cannot see it on the box photos), or.... they calculated that one connector was still appropriate, which would mean that only 200 to 250 watt is used per PCB.  If this last is the case then they have a rabbit-in-the-hat : one box gives 600 Ghs running 250 Watt gives 0.41 W/Ghs............

But my fear is that they didn't either add a connector nor have a 0.41 W/Gs.....



Huh?

A coincidence?

No coincidence (my order number is 1110x, so happened to be the very first.... And I guess I have one of the very first Titans as well, so stay tuned... just acting very fast when something new is released, and living in the same time zone as Sweden).

By the way: Sam didn't listen: the Neptune has only one Power-plug (so I will need to solder one additional on top of it, if I want to OC).

So obviously Elenelen has a man on the inside, lol.

No sadly not: if I had inside info: I wouldn't have ordered this hardware at all !!

There were some real disasters shipped to buyers, no doubt... boards with missing VRMs and capacitors. But I also think a lot of people received FrankenJups that maybe needed some minor fixes and then would work fine.

I'm certainly no DIYer but I can reseat a heatsink, swap out fans, reflash SD cards and reconnect cables. And that's the extent of my repairs to my FJ.

But of course, that doesn't excuse KNC for engineering such a terribly designed device and packing/shipping them so poorly. They are truly cheap bastards and will do anything to save a penny. For example, I ordered a couple extra controller boards and they refused to ship the IDC ribbon cables with the boards. Kurt said I could buy them at any electronics store.  Right! If you live in Shenzhen maybe.

  No there is no excuse for KNC did to Neptune customers who decided to opt for the early 3TH/s miners.  This is company who openly bragged about closing in on 100million USD in sales by June of this year who is running a datorhall that was raking in 450k USD per day in early spring this year.  They could afford to do better and chose otherwise.

whats the consensus on their there being 28nm chips in there?

not that i would put it past them scum but is that even feasible?

When they said Neptomb was 5 boxes and had 5 chips in each box, I was thinking the same thing  Cheesy

Not likely. It takes 18 Jupiter boards to get 3TH and they run at 900Mhz to get to that hashrate. Elenelen said her chips were clocked at 475Mhz...

Elenenene, did you get a tracking number so you knew what day to be home to receive it?



No coincidence (my order number is 1110x, so happened to be the very first.... And I guess I have one of the very first Titans as well, so stay tuned... just acting very fast when something new is released, and living in the same time zone as Sweden).

There are probably around 20 orders before you (1108x is the lowest), there are 2 users that I know for sure with lower ones, neither have reported any news so it's a bit strange but congrats on getting the first one and for updating everyone Smiley

Yes. But Track & Trace on UPS page said in first instance: sent from Sweden Thursday-13:00 expected arrival Monday late afternoon. But when I woke up Friday it said: Friday late afternoon : big surprise came at 11:00

Hi Elenenene,

can you post the advanced Menu for padrino, please?

I thing he has an idea how he can tweak the neptun. Is it also possible to copy the content of this file, if it exists:

/config/advanced.conf

open ssh and enter this command:

cat /config/advanced.conf

If you want, can you please post it here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=313978.1080

I will try (I like to push the clock beyond 500 Mhz to say 575, which would give a 4 Ths machine).
