Offer the controller board for sale on Ebay or something. With my Lightfoot code it can run Titans.

(Just a data point: I think I got one donation for writing/promoting that code. Fixed a lot of people who had Pi's blow up, just noted)

Did you only get a donation from me? Damn, that makes me sick!

I tossed him a titan controller. a split between me and longsnowsm...but yeah, hardly worth the effort..if just us....and you.

Did you get a l3+ 462m is the magic spot, fyi.

That's true, I did forget about those. More to the point though I did get a lot of satisfaction in solving the whole Raspberry Pi problem. That would have stopped a number of titans in their tracks, so getting it working was a good thing.

And now I'm working on another code mod for someone. Bitch on wheels, working on it between fixing other titans. We'll see.

Did you get an l3+ 462m is the magic spot, FYI.

They work. I have 3 L3+'s yet to go up this week. They all seem to work ok prev to this, unsure of settings I have had may/july/oct batches of them
approx 7 equiv (with l3's) L3+'s up till now..these $1650 3 L3+'s will put me at 10 equiv all work at the data hall w/o issue..up to this point

I guess it will all shake out in the wash...I do know we I will need about $100 buck LTC (as a guide) by Jan 2018 for me to keep the KNC Titans up at

around $5 a day...and that is VERY OPTIMISTIC with difficulty and that price etc

anyway, just to keep it on topic...if I make $5 bucks on titans say I make like $5.75 on an L3 and $11.50 on an L3+...so the diff between a Titan 300mh

and an L3 falling off the world .....mining scrypt wise is not that much...we need some price pump or difficulty will run both over ...again imho and optimistic

the scenario above in my view

the scenario above in my view



I wouldn't count on L3 making a lot once all these batches land.

Thus my point...the L3 is 75c a day ahead at $5.75 vs my $5 per day KNC Titan. Thus when/if the Titans go 'doorstop' the L3's will not be far behind....the L3+'s
at that point in time would inherit the $5 a day claim....

We need a 100 buck price pump, say in LTC, by Jan 2018 to keep things more or less where they are now profit wise...not real hopeful Sad

Will really, really suck if all the above units I mention...all miss say a price pump too far down the line to help the difficulty wise...would again suck

if we saw say 100 buck LTC too late to make any difference to the above equipment as 'doorstops'.....would be a 'so close yet soooo far' deal

 I fully disagree, I have at least 1 L3 from every release they have done and all run fully stable at 475, some higher. You say 462, so be it, but the sweet spot is 475.

Disagree with what? "Lets call it 462m is A magic spot."

Really this isn't the thread but im curious how many hw errors are you getting in 24 hours abouts with that setting? @462 i get about 100+ im betting 475 you're getting thousands if not tens of thousands. Im willing to eat my hat though.

Hi guys.

Two questions.

1. my beaglebone board died a horrible death. Can I just buy another board from the beagleboard.org website and use the RC6 firmware to flash it? I haven't seen anything on YT about doing this.
- I think KNC might have given a hosed second miner (first time I turned it on...I know I know) it came with OS 1.0.2 on it when i tried to update to 1.0.6 its been nothing but problems to the point were it's completely useless now. Not sure if there is anyway to resolve booting issue? I tired the microSD card with RC6 to only find out it made it worse.

2. My miners, the ribbon cables does it matter how they go on? I put them on the easy first, 3 of the 2 miners were working but now none of them appear to be working, even on my good controller which I have from my first Neptune. I haven't tried with my old ribbon cables yet.

Thanks,

I'm surprised this thread is so dead, now that Neptune is profitable again, which is just wild!

smoothrunnings, Yeah that info is buried somewhere in this thread.

1) You can replace the beaglebone with a newer one, if you're sure it's not the controller board, but I don't know if the newest one is still compatible. Safest bet is getting an older one off of ebay or such. I have one board that has started acting glitchy with the latest firmware, but otherwise I haven't had problems with it.

2) Yes the cables have to go on the correct direction, with the red or blue stripe facing the exhaust side of the cube and facing port 1 (JP7 on the board, aka the LCD screen port) on the controller. A faulty cube, or cube connected to a bad port on the controller, will cause the whole thing to mess up. Try one cube on each port to narrow it down.

I was able to get the board working again, however I noticed the 2nd batch of Neptune's are garbage. The 4 run without any issues but when the get hot the dies stop working. With my original cubes I don't have this problem and wonder if its a couple of things. 1. the fan isn't working well since someone mentioned the 2nd batch of Titan fans were garbage and weren't the same KNC fans that came with the first batch, and 2. I should go the same route Titan owners have by replacing the part that attaches the heat sink with smaller part so I can put heat sinks on all the VRMs? (this is more of a question).

Not sure what I need to check on the cube that won't work, would be nice to know if there is any thing I can check, I have a meter, maybe I need to bake the board a bit? IDK.

Then again cubes are cheap. I could buy one from Ebay but I don't or won't know if its a a batch 1 or something else.

Thanks

Check to make sure the heat sink is snugged down enough. It should not move if you try to rotate it on the chip, if it does it's too loose. For that go to the hardware store, get very small washers and put one washer under each screw for the sink. Also take the board off the frame and move one of the rubber things between the front two screws to better provide support under the board. Then put the screws on, heat sink on, and make sure it's snugged down tight with the washers, just till the sink will not rotate.

I have a Neptune and a Titan sitting around. Not sure it is worth firing them up though understand they will be marginally profitable. Thoughts?

It will depend on your electric rate, but the titan should definitely be profitable (here it's $0.16kwh and after deducting that it makes about $10 a day)

Heh...KNC miner ...wise move taking all that investment money..and then *gasp* stating that the "halving' was coming...(boy, we are surprised) we just can't make

any money with this bitcoin mining anymore here in Sweden etc...due to the Chinese...

https://news.bitcoin.com/knc-miner-bankruptcy-shutting-down/


truth be told, these clowns (ex-bankers some of them) never believed in crypto or BTC...thus took the money and ran with it...leaving investors in the lurch....

The funny thing is IF they had waited 4 months IMHO, they would have been golden and wracking up the cash yet.....

serves them right, when the money hit on their first batches of ASIC units...it was like all that cash turned them from Nun to Porn Star in a period of 6 months

this was around January 2014......and they went full evil from there, again in my view.....

Anyway, just an aside for the thread.....serves them right thou Smiley

I agree KNC should have stuck to making the hardware and not double dipping and they MIGHT still be in business today.

As another aside I got one of the very first titan's, and pointed it at litecoinpool.org, and I was ranked at #3 on the pool

Now down to #7510  Grin

You got to admit though, they made some pretty good hardware with the Titan. The fact that it's still profitable is quite frankly amazing....
