That was sarcasm Mikey! Btw Marco was awesome bought a coupon off him. But yeah Wu is a little fuck head. But at the same time I like cheap gear.

He is on my what ceo died last night list Roll Eyes


Every morning I google   Wu and Cook


Bimain's Jihan Wu

Apple's Tim Cook

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

I know you know how it works, phill knows  and everyone who has been around long enough knows what bitmain really is, but that post was for the newbies who think bitmain are kind and moral for giving out coupons like that.

Marco is a trusted dude i bought a truck load of coupons of him last year, as for Jihan and the cheap gears i would love to hear from you next month or two when the gears you bought fall 30% in price   Grin

I would estimate the s17 pro can sell at 800 + shipping and still turn a profit.  I can see it at that price after 1/2 ing happens.

Re price after halving-depends on btc price.

For me, both S17e and T17E came from China, urgh.
Taxes were about $493 for S17e and $360 for T17e.

Compare with s17pro from MY at $52 tax.
Why not switch ALL assembly to MY?
Oh, well.

this uncertainty makes it really hard for me to order from them.

i think i may have ended my orders for 2019.

Yes, I am done as well.
Not sure if it is OK to say here that I might sell coupons.

My S17e arrived yesterday.   $492 tariff paid.

Up and running immediately, and looking just fine. I did notice it has no power settings for low power/ normal.  Just one set speed

IF you look at the bitmain site on the technical specs..they seem to be doing this now. I assume it is for the newer released stuff and ALL will go on this route now. I suspect it is because to get the performance and hashing out of the same chips but just making bigger and bigger boxes there is not slack now. Maybe I'm wrong, but I suspect this will be the case. Anyway, others on this thread may have a workaround on this whole one setting thing..I'm just guessing.

But is there a workaround? Or are you simply stuck with this one power setting?

There are no "power settings" per se. You just power it on and it works on default speed (auto detects best frequency and power draw (voltage), as far as I can see). In General settings you can only edit pool info. But as usual you can access Advanced Settings by typing:

Code:
http://192.168.0.12/cgi-bin/minerAdvanced.cgi

instead of:

Code:
http://192.168.0.12/cgi-bin/minerStatus.cgi

However, miner totally ignores any frequency you give to it and forwards with its auto-speed default setting.
Frequency usually ranges between 423 and 438.
Also as I said previously, it has this line near the end of Kernel Log:

Code:
frequency.c:161:get_ideal_hash_rate_GH: ideal_hash_rate = 66971

Which probably indicates it's target speed. So far after few restarts, it worked between 68 and 67 TH/s, however, after 24h or so, it would drop to around 66 TH/s which is still higher than rated 64 TH/s that is also indicated near the end of Kernel Log via this line:

Code:
frequency.c:180:get_sale_hash_rate_GH: sale_hash_rate = 64000

limiting the under/overclock is probably to sell binned chips for more as an (e/+) model

hmmm...

well, do you figure they maxed the puppies out to get more into a box? Or is that overkill and not needed? In other words are they reaching a limit on how these puppies are made size wise?

not getting any anyway..some people have hobbies... I sit in the ASIC bleachers and 'mope' about my ONE never to ROI Bitmain S9i on https://slushpool.com.

Ack! Far I have fallen from my ASIC Miner addiction and my 'glory' days. Well, hell, at least I can watch and eat popcorn!

the t17e is not much. one speed and pulls 3356 watts

gear like this is poorly designed and serves not much purpose.

as 3356/53th = not too good.

it runs hot in a very well vented room.

i do not recomend buying the t17e or the s17e.

the s17 and s17 pro are better since they have multiple speeds.

yeah i know run gear hard and fast seems good way to earn coins.

well the gear breaks and overheating happens.

if you can cool or vent gear ⚙️ properly it is okay. but lots of us don’t ac we only vent .

in the summer turning gear down is good option.  and the 17e gear does not have it.

How much do you wanna bet that they will add sleep mode and/or Low Power mode in firmware for 17e models as soon as btc halving happens?

[...]

Again, good to know, from those of us on the sidlelines I always wondered what the difference was between T17 and S17 and S17 pro was. I assume the S17 pro has the better bin'd chips and such? Perhaps firmware improvements besides speed settings?

(munches popcorn in bleachers..till 10c kWh mining comes back, I'm on the injured reserved list for ASIC mining! Smiley

the s17 pro controller will work on my s17. it will show the gear as a s17 pro.

it will do the lowest setting flawlessly.

it needs an occasional reboot on middle speed.

it does not do well on turbo runs very hot and shuts down.

but the low setting it is very good.

i only played around with one s17 as i only have 1 s17.

the s17 responds extremely well to underclocking/volting in testing, so far

yeah i can get good numbers with mine.

i purchased a s17/s17pro controller as a spare .

it can flash to either one so i made it a s17 pro controller.

put in place of the s17 and tested the mod.

very happy with low setting.

all this is in prep for 1/2 ing if needed i can go more efficient.

would be a nice option around halving. I only have the T17 variants and no S17 variants.
