I have been running my Antminer Z9 mini overclocked at 700M for five days and it hasn't had any HW errors. Still running quiet and cool at 58 to63 degrees,  this seems to be a much better miner than my last Antminer. Averaging 15.3k sols, which is mining 1.5 Zencash a day on supernova.

After a week I am going to crank it up all the way to 750 M.

Anyone else running it at 750 without errors?

These don't have error reporting implemented  regardless of how high a frequency you set. You will start seeing a degradation in sol rate from what you *should* be getting at higher frequencies.

Been running on 750 with 0 HW errors since day 1, average hashrate is usually around 16.75k - 17k as reported by the pool. Some folks are reporting better hashrates at 725 for some reason, though I haven't tested that personally.

I've cranked it up to 750 and it hasn't had any HW errors. I did set the fan speed to 50% just to make sure that it stays cool. 50% is 3,480 rpms and that keeps it right at 56-59 degrees.

It's been averaging 16.4 KSol/s for 2 days. Which equals 1.6 Zencash a day. Pretty happy with this little guy.

Hope it stays this way, at least until September when the big brother Z9s start shipping.  Smiley

Update:

Still running errors free at 750M. Hashrate stays even but Zencash mined per day has dropped a little to 1.35 Zen a day. Probably due to new Z9s coming online. Getting closer to ROI.

Which pool are you mining on? i'm only getting around 1.05/day zencash on Zhash.pro while cranked to 750.
Also I think there's supposed to be an upcoming reward decrease for ZEN soon if it hasn't happened already

It would be interesting and helpful to the community if one of these days you report to us if and when your Z9 ASIC dies. I would certainly find that useful information and reward you with some merit or some other way if possible.

Knowing the limits on these machines and why bitmain only shipped with lower default settings is a intriguing.

I'm fairly sure they underrated the mini's capability to not steal thunder from the big brother. One of the guys on this forum did a hardware/tech breakdown of the mini and suggested it likely has even more overclock potential than what Bitmain allows. I have a very strong suspicion that the non-mini is essentially just 2 mini's glued together with an increased stock clock speed. If true this means anyone expecting to get that same additional +60% OC will be disappointed

1 of my Z9 suddenly died, it was running at 750 MHz for weeks. It is now not responding after power up, no LED activity or fan spins. Tried with different working bitmain psu with no luck.

What were the chip temps?

What were the chip temps?

Anywhere from 68-79 C depending on the time of the day.

To keep it cool I am running at 50% fan speed fixed in programming, the chip temperature is 57 to 60. After reading that yours was so high I am hoping mine will last..

I ran at 650 out of the box, bumped up to 750 a couple weeks ago.

I abused it about as much as I could with daytime ambient temps that hit over 50°C in the mining room and a worst chip temp of 86°C, with chip temps no cooler than 77°C on the coolest of recent mornings.  Average chip temps are 78°-80°C in an abusive environment and it's still chugging away.

The stupid high ambient temps I was experiencing are over now that I resolved exhaust heat issues, but I'm comfortable running these chips up to 80 all day long.
I suspect the guy that blew his up was also comfortable running at 80.

YMMV

This is a marathon not a Sprint. Especially in this bear market. No need to overclock it too high and risk getting 0 hash rate.

I had one time issue at 650 overclock at mid 70 temps. Would not hash or connect. kept going into jet engine mode. After a few hours it would hash again so I keep it at a conservative 625 overclock in 85 degree summer weather.

I decided to test the mini 1 last time before sending it to Bitmain. I tested 1 hashboard at a time and and it turned out 1 of the board was causing the PSU to trip. After opening it up, found the burned hashboard. Mini is hashing fine with 2 good boards now. 3 other Z9s and 2 A9s in the same server case are running fine.





Server Case, it is vented on top with a 1500 CFM QC-ES-1500 fan.

Hawkfish007 that is a nice setup!

 What do you think about running my fan @50% constantly to keep the temperature under 60 degrees? I see that everyone else seems to let them run much higher closer to 70.

My Antminer A3 always ran hot, and wouldn't run overclocked at all. It's temps were always above 73 degrees. Where my L3s ran much cooler.

What is a comfortable temperature when running overclocked?
