They have basically overclocked it a bit, something most people do anyway as the l3+ is a great overclocker


L3++ factory overclocked L3+ ?

Mine does 15% happily, maybe I should eBay it as an L3++ ?  Grin
Is overclocking easily done?  Are there instructions on how to do this floating around out there that someone would be able to share? I’ve looked but without success.

Simply change the frequency under (Miner Configuration -> Advanced settings). Higher frequency = higher hashing speed and higher power usage.

What "Hardware Version" are you on from the System/Overview screen?  I was just looking at mine and realized one of the newer machines I got is at 1.0.1.3 where my original (batch 2 I think) from May 2017 is 1.0.1.1.  The thing I noticed is that the newer machine is running at chip temps of ~48-50 and the older machine is running at chip temps of 60-63.  Both are set at the same out of the box frequency.  Made me wonder if my newer box already is a L3++ and has plenty of room to over clock.  Will be interesting to see the hardware version on the new ones and what the frequency is set to.

the real question is if/when bitmain MAY toss the supposed 1.5gh 1,300-watt units and mine them over the summer


I suspect they have already deployed initial units to Hashnest to start replacing L3 / L3+ units there, but it was probably a small batch mostly for engineering/testing purposes to validate the design and to get the software calibrated.




Speaking of hashnest.. I hope they re up the stock of the miners (or for new miners) sometime!

Can you tell me your frequenzy as well as voltage?

I tried to tweak around but it did not make a lot of change to it. My one miner is running again (bitmains firmware suddenly stoped working and a re-flash did nothing)

Bu I get 900W or so at the same Mh output

There's been no miner release since the L3+ IIRC on Hashnest, and nothing much has been happening there as of late, never mind miner restocks. It's a shame they price their units so high compared to buying directly from the Bitmain shop while they're for sale usually- it's a pretty big premium to pay for cloud mining, but at the very least they're reputable.

at one time you could make close to 40 a day with one miner then it went down to 20 and when they first came out i think it was even more .

he had it 8 months ago when difficulty was much much lower....I also got my L3+'s last summer...thus no issue on ROI then Smiley

I need some advice,

I was going to order some L3+'s when they were between $450-505 but now they have have increased to $652 and likely higher I am starting to look at S9's again as an alternative before Bitmain raise the prices again on next batch. I could also consider Baikal X10 or Dragonmints but they are significantly higher priced.

What would you guys do or recommend given current market conditions and pricing? I am looking to double up the size of my farm and so timing of equipment purchases are vital; I was hoping to take advantage of the L3+ fire sale but couldn't get my power upgrade approved in time to comfortably order a lot of them. I guess with the increase in LTC price the profit ratio stays about the same; Bitmain sees to that. It just hurts to pay about 50% per unit from what I could have a week ago and the concern of an L5 release. Should I bite the bullet or look for a different ASIC? I also could wait a few months and hope to score new Nvidia GPUs but that's very speculative.

PS: I wonder if $350 coupons apply to L3++ again with the raised prices; that could change things, its not quite half value though. Anyone confirm?

I suggest buy slowly over time as miner prices are very volatile these days. The avalons dragonmints and S9 can probably get cheaper as the asic war intensifies.

Don't worry. The market is being flooded with this legacy technology. Within 3 months you will buy L3+ at $300.00 and S9's at $600.00. They will make $1.50 per day once the new machines launch. Unless you have sub .055 kwh rates you should NOT be falling into this trap. Don't listen to me though. I'm the ONLY guy on these forums that said S9's would sell for $1,200.00 when people were paying $4,500.00. Jump in...the water's fine.

You only live once....if you do it right, once is enough.

i think we might see a bitcoin miner before a litecoin miner. with the constant changes to prices and stocks by bitmain I feel we are very close to a new release
