Okay. My unit showed up the other day Monday the 20th.

I get about 17500 th at 1450 watts.

This is close to 82 watts a th.

It is a good number

So what does the firmware do?

Optimize hash. Does not mean optimize power.

So. Will hash go up and power go up? =  not what I want.

Will hash go up and power stay the same = very good

Will hash stay the same and power drop = best

I have only made one purchase from you this unit.

I don’t want high power use

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I agree, more specific notes on the updates would be nice. For me though if it was working well why touch it but then you're proposes and skills are a lot different. 

Others, be careful as we're talking T2 and T2T in here, so watch what firmware you're using on which unit.

yeah  part of doing these reviews is so that others don't take the risk of shit firmware upgrade.

so I did the up grade to this one

For your better user experience, please download onto:
http://www.innosilicon.com.cn/download/t2t_20180814_092800.swu

and my balanced is now at 20.49  but the power moved to 1876 watts so 1876 / 20490 = 91.5 watts a th  which is not as good as the numbers before  which were 89 watts a th.

I will check efficiency  setting  next.

and fans are faster but unit is cool.    57 c

so  about 1 more th and 110 more watts  for balanced.  this is all fine and good  if btc jumps higher.  but  instead of  giving less watts and the same hash better watts per th

it is more watts and more hash   worse watts per th exactly what I did not want.

I will test balanced next
I will also attempt to roll back firmware after that which may not be possible since I don't have that file

And @ Inno_Asic  give me a link  for original firmware  not the newest.

For your better user experience, please download onto:
http://www.innosilicon.com.cn/download/t2t_20180814_092800.swu

For your better user experience, please download onto:
http://www.innosilicon.com.cn/download/t2_20180814_100830.swu

So I have the two above
give me the first one  that came with  the machine

Note T2Turbo is what I have

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Can you or anyone else read decibel level or give a general opinion on noise level?

Can you or anyone else read decibel level or give a general opinion on noise level?  

well  the firmware  upgrade fucked up the noise level  since it boosted fan speed.

It was far better then an s9

fan speed  was 50  and temps  were 63c  for efficiency

fan speed was 73 and temps were 63c for balanced

now  

fan speed is 90%  and temps are 50c  for efficiency
fan speed is 90% and temps are 56c for balanced

so typical innosilicon BS  which is why  I never purchased a unit from them  until  I got this one from you.

I will keep this one and if I can not roll back  firmware I won't be buying anymore.

I will also mark all innosilicon products with  neg feedback  if I can not  roll back this upgrade.
and mark all innosilicon  reps with  negative feedback  if I am unable to roll back this firmware.

Only because I asked a specific question  and was given what I suspected was a false fake answer.
my question:

Okay. My unit showed up the other day Monday the 20th.

I get about 17500 th at 1450 watts.

This is close to 82 watts a th.

It is a good number

So what does the firmware do?

Optimize hash. Does not mean optimize power.

So. Will hash go up and power go up? =  not what I want.

Will hash go up and power stay the same = very good

Will hash stay the same and power drop = best

I have only made one purchase from you this unit.

I don’t want high power use

I just did a factory reset.

we will see if it rolls back firmware.

it did not roll back the firmware.

and while this firmware works  it uses more power per th
and has 90% fan speed.

I now burn 1500 watts at efficiency
I used to burn 1450 watts at efficiency

my fans were 50%
my fans are 90%

I don't have the original link to roll back to.

So I will wait one day for an original file then mark negative everywhere that I can.

Why even bother releasing the update. . ..

They should have the firmware posted for roll back. Philip, not to poke the bear but a basic reply is all I might expect from their forum account. Hopefully once they get to business hours over there they'll update and list the original firmware. We'll give them a chance to help us out.

Is there a "back up existing firmware" option, where someone with the original build can archive it?

yeah  I will wait  but  as for now the new august 14 update is unacceptable  garbage  90% fans  vs 50% fans  85 watts a th vs 82 watts  a th.

100 watts more power for 1th more hash which is not what I wanted for efficiency setting.

I would have preferred 0 watts more power  for .5th hash

or 100 watts less for 1th less

which would be 1350 watts and 17 th  or 79 watts per 1th

I sent an email to support.   I will wait to see if they reply.

My Mr Johnson will be well protected.

Once I get the fans down to 50%

I will tear down the psu.

I will try to get it to be cool but quiet.

I have some high quality fans.

I would love to swap the stock fans and run them at 50%.

Along with the psu mod.

I think it will be okay and not that loud.

I find it odd my I missed such a deliberate set up. Or was I playing the straight man?

Do people even use that phrase anymore? Could be found derogatory to hetero males some. .. Oh and a T2T or something.

Naw, playing the straight man has nothing to do with sexual preference. If someone tries to take it otherwise, that's an opportunity to educate someone on a historic staple of comedy.

Oh yeah, still haven't heard back from Inno about chips. Might buy me one of them miners though, you know, to mine with. Definitely not to take apart.
