hello everyone,

ive got myself a powered usb station and i have two 2 pac miners. one is green one is black.

my question is will multiple sticks work under one 'worker name'? or should each stick be somehow given its own worker name in my start command line?

currently i connect to slushpool like so:

cgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.slushpool.com:3333 -u zbw123.worker1 -p x --gekko-2pac-freq 150

I am pretty new to all this but it seems like one worker per cgminer instance is standard.

Sidehack FYI.

I ran two of the TTbits at the standard freq. of 100 (zombie if you raise the freq.) on their software with one Gekko at 100.  All run, but not flash acceptance of shares.  Mostly said stale share, then a bunch of acceptance & then back to a number of stale shares.

Set up the Gekko on another computer & ran at 150 on your software.  Outperformed the TTbits by 2:1 with no stale shares.  Think their software is one issue with the almost constant 'stale share' bit & the other issue is the marginal actual working performance.  The (A) readings snapshot is: 

Gekko A; 6640

TTbit (2) A; 2965

Conclusion is that the difference in performance indicates the TTbit should sell for less than USD$25.00 based upon performance, power/hash & poor software.

Comments?   Other test I should try?   Cheers Vezpit.

You probably selected a port with a vardiff (variable difficulty).  If the pool offers a fix diff port you need to select that port & set your diff to reflect an optimal diff.  This  would require some experimentation. 

All that being said, unless you have a specific reason to set fix diff, most pools operate with a very good variable diff & will yield the best results.

hello everyone,

can anyone help me with the voltage setting?

i'm struggling to get stability with anything over 100 on one of my sticks. my black one runs at 175 no probs. but my green one will only just at 175 for a few hours. they are both nicely cooled and i'm using a 3amp Orico USB powdered 7way.

I have tried turning the little voltage key a little bit in both directions but that doesnt appear to make any difference. maybe i should turn it more? i didnt want to over do it!!

ideally i was hoping to max these out at like 275 or even 300 but that now seems very unlikely.

any help much appreciated.

thanks
zac

Are those seconds sticks, the ones sold at a discount because they're pretty much guaranteed to be not as good?

Pounds? How did you get a green stick in Europe? Who did you buy them from?

The "official" place to buy anything GekkoScience, basically, is from me. Unless you're in Europe in which case you talk to bitshopper.de (MacEntyre on this forum)

What are the device serial numbers you see in cgminer (GSD 1000xxxx)?

GSD 10022394
BSD 10014358

I'm in UK.

do you have a website cus i'd rather buy direct. i just ordered three more so i probably wont need anymore of these but i'd be interested in whatever else you might be bringing out.

unless you have super deals on for these.... maybe i'll have some more   :-)

Any black stick with a BSD serial is a proper stock stick sent to bitshopper.de for resale. The green stick, serial 22394, is not a seconds stick but I don't know how you ended up with it in UK unless you bought it second-hand. Either that or I have a reseller breaking the rules.

Let me ask again, who did you buy them from?

ahh ok i see. well the sellers name on ebay is: sottime

the three that i have on order are also from the same seller and they are also green.


while i have you please can you explain a little about the voltage adjuster? what is the home position of it and is it clockwise for more volts?

thank you

this is gekkoscience thread, any questions regarding the ttbit should be directed to their btctalk thread or at least back to your seller

Yes agree,  this was the conclusion of a previous discussion with 'Sidehack' & relates to the differences between the two sticks.

I bet nobody's speaking up because there's references in the first post.
