I have 5 of these running, on a rpi3, but I can not seem to get these to run anywhere near the 17th's. I just restarted again, and I usually use nice hash.  I have moved the newest firmware I could find unless that is a bad idea. Any suggestions would be great and if this wrong topic i am apologize I am still new to this.

Hello,

I am looking for some input. I am using 5 Avalon 6 miners with rpi3 with following:

[Firmware Version] => Avalon Firmware - 20160726
    luci: ba1ef5b
    cgminer: e3b2bb9
    cgminer-packages: e4fb5c3

Using HP 1200 watt PSU Plat hooking up 220, and the avalon 6's using MM ver Ver[601608-6dffde40]

I am no sure upgrading those was a good idea, but I am sure keeping them all on the same is a good idea. I have no idea how to turn off this smart speed or if its  a good idea.  also If you have any suggestions to get get higher than 14th or so that be great. I have cooling going outside with ac so that doesnt seem to be the problem :/

I tried posting a link to a photo and I cant seem to find a way to attach it.. The board out my hyperlink and board ate it.

The 14THs isn't very far out I don't think from what a processor/miner would be expected to run from without overclocking using 5x3.5THs devices. If you have a manual with them, you might want to look at instructions on overclocking them if you want to get them closer to the 17.5 limit but you may damage your miners by doing that for extended periods of time.
