Thanks for the detailed info dmwardjr! I plan on trying this weekend.

You mention "This is an S3+ [I have 13 of  them].  All of them are clocked at 193 MHz and 0625 volts to achieve 390 GH/s and 238 watts at the wall [fan speeds are very low with 37 Celsius temps].  This also comes out to approximately .61 watts per GH/s."

What was the efficiency of the S3+ prior to reducing frequency and voltage?

Hot time, summer in the city, back of my mine getting hot & gritty!!!

The last 2 firmware updates do not work with my S3's.  Even after doing the updates in order.  F/W 5 & 6 create a 500 error on the miner status page and although the lights flash and they belch hot air there is no mining.  Reverted to F/W 4 and mining happily again.

It is well documented in the S3 thread that the latter firmwares rarely work well, if ever. It seems you have to install them in a certain way, and use them in very particular ways, akin to the iPhone vulcan grip!
I am dumb-founded to see a post in a pool thread about firmware updating for a particular rig ... surely the best place for that must be in the rig thread where it has been discussed widely and other users have shared their experiences. That is quite aside from polluting this thread with "show and tell" type images ..... I am sure there are threads dedicated to that!

Phew! Last block out of the way ... 20hrs!

It was a long block .... but yes, you have to be in it to win it!
And having peaked at about 11 Ph/s during the block, it ended when we were at 10.2 Ph/s .... rich pickings ..... sorry you missed out and have a nice day too!

Didn't miss out.  Got 0.45858841 from that block.  The f/w issue was with a small rig that's running on Betarigs.  Oh no!  Another thing not related to the pool.  Your miserable little head will probably explode.

I see you are excitable .... and given up moving your rigs whence the pool hits 10 Ph/s or the block is over 9 hrs ..... well then, pick a number of what you may have earned, any number!

Lets get back on-topic ... pool is now 10.44 Ph/s ... is that some thresh-hold to behold?
PS. Did you notice the pool was, for a while yesterday, not setting diffs and did a longer than usual sync?

Didn't notice the diffs but did notice the sync.  Might be coincidence but it looked like others were going slow too.  Maybe a network thing.

11 hours followed by 20 is crippling.

Yep, network was definitely slow(er) too (or at least it seemed so to me), but I think we also had issues of our own. Saying that, we've popped another one .... and that just as I was rebooting one of my rigs!

What was the efficiency of the S3+ prior to reducing frequency and voltage?

Prior was [on average] 455 GH/s with 351 watts at the wall [Corsair AX860 PSU's] with same temps and all rigs at factory frequency default of 218.75 MHs.  I could not adjust the voltage on them at the time without the January 9, 2015 firmware update.  This comes out to ,77 watts per GH/s

Wow!  Very odd!  You mentioned you installed the last two updates.  Did you have the August 26, 2014 Firmware update installed prior to installing the last two?  If you had August 7 and August 26, that may be the reason for the 500 error code.

Not sure.  Going down the "If it's not broke don't fix it" route.

I understand.  That was the same way I was thinking.  However, I decided to take a chance with a batch 8 S3+ for the sake of saving on power costs and it worked out for me.  Then, I decided to risk an older S3 [not S3+] purchased off of eBay and it managed to work out for me as well.  So I was able to save quite a bit on power costs.  Power costs are a big factory these days with bitcoin at it's present price.

When I replace them it will be S5, SP20 or whatever new units they've released.

I'm not sure when Bitmain will release the S5 again.  Or even if they will release it.  They seem to be pushing cloud mining with the S5 pretty hard at the moment and the option to buy the S5 at approximately $430 + shipping if you choose to have it shipped to you.  That is rather high in my opinion.  I jumped on a 15 unit package of the Spondooliestech.com SP20's while Bitmain was on their new year holiday.  I'm happy I did.  The SP20's are great rigs.

There are rumors that Spondooliestech will only sell their next generation rigs in bulk and they will be large form factor rigs [About 12U in size, which is very large].  They will also have an efficiency of .05 to .03 watts per GH/s.  That low of efficiency would be a miracle and would change mining BIG TIME!  I believe that low of efficiency is another reason why they would only sell in bulk.  Otherwise, the difficulty would go up astronomically.  That low of efficiency is phenomenal!  The Bitmain S5's efficiency is .51 watts per GH.  Spondooliestech is shooting for .05 to .03.  WOW!

I just started mining but been adding S3+'s, S5's and Sp20's to my rig. Still a baby setup compare dot you guys though. LOL

I do have to chime in though, I don't see the possibility of a 0.03-0.05 watt / GH possibility. Even if it's in a 100Th setup. No way, no how, with today's technology.
Only way is to do a hybrid of alternate Energy + grid power.

I'm pretty sure he was talking about the supposed next gen 16 nm or smaller technology as per the efficiency quote.

Still. I somehow doubt they have more efficient engineers than Intel or ATI/AMD, IBM, and even they have not reached such low power figures.

I just don't see it.. This next gen releases will probably be in the 0.30W/GH power figure, maybe high 20's if they really get some good dies made.

Besides if that becomes true. It will highly impact the BC Mining world and I don't think in a good way for smaller miners.  Grin
