The web page of the hub that you are using does not specify the current of the power adapter.  This is probably your limiting factor.  You may just try the software overclocking and see if it works for you.  In most cases it is possible to replace just the power adapter with one of a higher capacity (I have done that with very cheap 10 port hubs that came with 2A power adapters which tended to die very quickly). The fan could be powered from a free USB port on your PC, or from a separate 'USB charger' adapter.

In regard to Slush reporting of hashing power, it is correct if you are hashing steadily from or before the start of a block, but as it is based on the 'shares so far' tends to be quite inaccurate if there are any changes in your hashing.  You may try another pool such as BTC for a short period of time just to check out your hashing 'on the air' if that concerns you.  Both cgminer and bfgminer provide good reporting of the hashing rates, so you can rely on that.

Cheers

I really don't think its my hardware. From the way things look in bfgminer all is normal and the antminer U1's have the one light on and the one green light flashing like they have from day one.

I'm starting to think it might be time to cut my losses with this pool and move on. Just to make sure if it's or isn't my hardware I'm going to mine a different pool and see wwhat the stats show for it.
Your hardware is probably fine, as your mining software reports the expected 'default' hash rates.  I meant that if you want to overclock the Antminer U1's, your power adapter maybe the limiting factor.

Argh!... will people stop whinging.
It's a pool.
Sometimes things take time to fix.
They ALWAYS are, always will be.
It's not a 5 minute metric here, check in every few days.
It'll always be what it is.

It's fine by me.
If people don't like it, then please sod off.

No, seriously, sod off.

Go whine somewhere else. You'll be no better or worse off...

And FFS stop whinging here. Luck is luck, tech is tech. Give it up!

Never ceases to amaze me when people feel like they need to tell others what they can/can't say and how they should say it. .   Far as I can tell you're British - and Brits support free speech as well, so not sure where that comes from. .  If you don't like, you can always not read it. .

Maybe you take after the Lego song

Everything is Awesome,
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is Awesome when you're living out a dreams
Everything is better when we stick together,
Side by side you and I gonna win forever?
Let's party forever
We're the same unlike you, you & me we are a working in harmony
Everything is Awesome,
Everything is cool when you're part of a team
Everything is Awesome when you're living out a dreams

But hell, if I was to follow your path, I would be whinging and bitching about you bitching and telling you to sod off with your whinging about other people whinging. .. .

Okay. I misunderstood you. Without being able to put a fan on the one I'm not sure I want to over clock them. I have thought about it from time to time.

I just hooked up a couple cubes a few hours ago and shares are being submitted, reward is being calculated but on the stats page it doesn't show how many shares I have submitted for each round and on the account page the unconfirmed reward is still at 0.00 after a few block have been found. Is the site having issues or are my cubes not configured properly? I am running the stratum mining proxy.

I just had a heart attack. I looked at my account and my miner said "0 shares, 0 score, last receved 8 hours 40 minutes ago"  Thought I missed all the rounds since the 12 hours one!

It just took a few minutes to show its on a new block!

Phew


Edit: thats wierd, still shows 42 minutes into current block. But I looked a my account 10 minutes ago and I had 100,000 or so shares for this round.

The cool thing is, for those of us who waited, is that now that so many people have left the pool the rewards are, at least for me, significantly larger. I could stand a few days of this.

Just another dust miner... Enquiring Gnomes want to Mine!

Yep.

Anyone else noticing very inconsistent rewards? I'm trying to tell if its my new miners or the pool.

From the past few blocks its varying as much as 20%

My own are pretty consistent over the same range.

You haven't mentioned another possibility: that it might be network congestion somewhere, perhaps restricted to your ISP or even your locality.  Even though I'm on cable broadband, my own reported hash rates tend to slow down in the evening (from around 17h00) as everyone gets home and turns their computers on, which sometimes has a small intermittent impact on my mining for five or six hours - typically up to 10%, which is about what you are seeing.

I also see a significant difference if I switch from cable to ADSL (different ISP), when I get as much as a 25% reduction.

notice the time differences in those? the way it was explained to me is basically you didn't have enough time for your miners to get the average amount of shares you normally would have on blocks that take a bit longer

Lot's of theories floating around these days about the pool.

One fact is that the old timers (well if 6 months mining is an old timer) are lying low and by looks of the cluster performance the preponderance of evidence says those big rigs the "old timers" have are staying connected to the pool. Now if I were a betting man I'd put my money on the old timers knowing that things are ok in a general sense and problems will sort themselves out in time.

To look to the pool as the major fault when you still have training wheels on your rig is probably looking in the wrong place.

The "old timers" used GPUs , all this is brand new. Huge ASICs, massive difficulty, all new, always will be now. Work with evidence and facts not with mystical witchdoctor of bitcoin mining theories. I could spend all night quoting really fucking stupid things that "old timers" have said about mining and bitcoin, but an obvious one was the recent poll where the majority on this forum thought that XBT would hit 5k by the end of 2014, or Google / Paypal / Apple adopting bitcoin...none of which look likely now if you go on actual evidence.

Here's some more "old timers" predictions involving tech. http://www.techhive.com/article/155984/worst_tech_predictions.html Fuck old timers, use your logic. Wink

Assuming that you had steady mining at your side (ruling out the peculiar time effects of Slush's unique exponential 'anti-hopping' algorithm), you are at the mercy of fluctuations in the total pool behavior.   Looking at your results, without doing any calculations, they seem fine. 
You can calculate your share as a proportion of the total shares (deducting the 2% pool fee)
For block 21711  25.09469911*46065/186595076*(1-0.02)=0.006071262  your actual reward was 0.00587115, which is quite close.  Note that the pool total share does not include the 'score' which has some time domain effects due to Slush's exponential thing.  You may repeat this calculation for your other blocks, but I don't think that you'll find anything alarming there either.

Just noticed a dip in my Estimated reward on the Account page, it dropped to something like 0.0056 of the calculated reward based on my hash rate (no problems at my end with either mining rigs or internet connectivity).  This looks like another 'hiccup' at the pool end, similar to what we had recently causing incorrect reward calculations that took a while to be 'readjusted'.

I'd probably have slightly less rejected shares if I moved my various miners onto the same router as my proxy but I'm not putting all the whirring S#$t that runs the backend squarely into the middle of the man cave for a few bucks lost profit. I see some stale shares but the rejects aren't a high enough percentage to alarm me and I'm not convinced that extra hop in the house makes a significant impact.
