Zvi, I am still having an issue with my SP10 running with intake temperatures at or below 0c. Technical support suggested that I update my firmware to 2.5.13, however it is unavailable in the web GUI.

I found the following kb regarding the issue with low intake temps, http://www.spondoolies-tech.com/blogs/technical-blog/15824368-version-2-5-12

That support article seems to indicate that it is for SP20. SP3X. Is it even possible to apply that firmware to an SP10? If not is there a manual workaround that can be done to get the unit hashing with lower than 0 degree intake?

"Version 2.5.12 became the official, 2.5.6 removed and 2.5.13 is the latest experimental.
2.5.12 - different handling of BIST and Murata flow - improves stability.
2.5.13 - sets default (after factory reset) values to 1275/288 in SP3x/SP2x. Redirection bug fixed. Handling of ambient temperatures lower then 0c added."

2.X.X are for SP2x and SP3x. Update to latest version (I think it is 1.5.Cool - you might need to update FW twice (till it says that you have the latest image).
I am at 1.5.8, I just reapplied it to see and it didn't make any difference. Once the intake temp drops to 0 or lower it stops hashing. I'll get about 100 shares processed and then it stops mining. After several minutes the entire unit will reboot and go through the same sequence.
Zvi, support is not responding to my email requests for 3 days now. Can you please let me know if there is a manual workaround I can apply to get my SP10 working under 0c? I'm down for almost 2 weeks now and hope there is a solution other than selling the gear.

Lurker here  Wink also from Canada thought I would chime in. You need to be a bit more reasonable with electronics outdoors methinks. Other than Panasonic Toughbooks operating at -18 outside, not much else. However I ran a 4 GPU mining rig outside last December in -25! most of the winter. But I gave it a chance. This outside on a patio exposed not even in a garage. I covered the rig with a large cardboard box and modified that (vents / fans) to give the rig a chance to warm up and operate. I would suggest you do or try the same; improve the miners immediate surrounds with such a carton or cardboard box, or even some a/c venting or tubing from the exhaust around to the intake to let it take in some warm air. A quick check of that miner's PSU operating temp. states -10 C upwards. That may be your issue. Try a shipping carton, cardboard box over the miner then monitor the running temps of that enclosure once up and running and modify that. -17 bare exposed electronics like even warming up your car sitting overnight in those types of temps will always be difficult regardless of software / firmware other updates.

Good luck!

I'm very happy with my SP20's performance with p2pool, it's steady and to spec. I do have a couple of questions though, if someone can help me out:

I want to experiment with the -queue setting, as from my experience p2pool likes this set to zero & reduces the DOA/stale rate. I presume that as there is no flag in the cgminer command already - it is using the default setting of 1? When I add the command "queue":"0" to cgminer via ssh & restart the miner, the queue flag is displayed on the cgminer pools page, but with no value stated underneath, instead of showing 0. Is this a bug, or am I unable to use the queue command on the SP20?
You can change params in /etc/cgminer.conf. You can also replace cgminer in /etc/bin/ with custom cgminer, or with script that will call any excecutible with any parameters. I am not experienced with cgminer in p2pool to help beyond that.

Also, on the asics stats page, am I correct in thinking that board 0 corresponds to loop 0, board 1 to loop 1, etc? I've noticed that loop 0 & 2 are running at a lower temp than loops 1 & 3 - so was wondering if I can increase the watts to those loops/boards via the settings page? Or do the watts have to be the same for all 4 boards (power units on the settings page)?
There are 4 virtual boards in SP20, and the back boards (1/3) are throttled more in temp over 17C because they are not getting cool air. Increase fans or decrease ambient temp, if possible.

Thanks in advance  Smiley

Inline.

Hi zvisha,

Inline? Does that mean the watts must be the same for all 4 power inputs?

Thanks again  Smiley

PatMan, you problably have figured it out by yourself already, but "Inline" means here "The answers were placed inline as bold text".

Order 3242. I don't have a ticket number, but have sent 3 emails through your contact form on your website.
Found the ticket. Your miner will be shipped on Sunday and we'll compensate for the delay from the 18, as written few pages back.

Guy

Great, thanks for the update.

Guy, my SP20 finally shipped today and I won't receive it until Monday, December 1st. When can we expect compensation for the shipping delay?

Yeah, I worked that bit out eventually... Cheesy Thanks. But I still don't know if it's OK to set the boards/loops at different settings or weather I have to keep them all the same......

The SP20 is again like the past Spondoolies-Tech miners and simply an excellent miner. SP-Tech has also cut the prices recently to $795. The lower price to performance level makes them an excellent buy as well. They are also going to have a Bitcoin Black Friday special that will bring the price down to $695 and run through Cyber Monday. Guy says they will ship from stock as well: Meaning it is not a preorder sale.

I was specifically referring to barabara, who in the emails where i asked for a discount neglected to mention any sale and in fact advised me to buy asap...

would it not THEN have been logical to mention there is a sale starting imminently...?




OK, so will you (SPT) honor the 100USD discount seeing as my order is still    'pending & unfulfilled'   $940.00   ?

if you bought via my link i'm willing to put $100 of my own earned commission to ensure you get that discount Ed.

Well I couldn't help myself.

Buying another SP20 using the proceeds of old miner sales that have more than made their money back Cheesy

In return getting the same output but much lower power usage.

Now.. for big boys toys.. seems to make sense to get the SP31 with immediate delivery right? Compared to the extra 500Gh but maybe 1 month later delivery of the SP35?

meh. and here's me with every faith in you. /s
to be totally transparent now: I don't promote spondoolies because i want to get rich from folks orders.
I'm not a 'paid shill'
I do it because i truly believe in the company and their ethos.
I don't get paid cash with my referral earnings, i get a small commission which goes towards Sp-Tech products, which I mine with myself and do not sell on.
My BTC is held in cold wallets and put safely away for my children's futures - apart from a small amount each month that I use to rent other mining rigs p2p from other miners to sustain the pool on which I mine (mmpool.org).
Having been in contact with SP-Tech from the very beginning, I will continue to uphold their integrity that they are committed to the decentralisation of the bitcoin network and the promotion of smaller miners like myself.
I'm not a super-genius tech-savvy electronics guru... I like to be able to switch things on, and they work, when they don't work, I come looking for you lot to help me.
...and i'm an insomniac  Embarrassed that's why I have so much time on my hands to do this sort of thing.
I want to make sure everyone knows about bitcoin and everyone benefits from it.

so... on this occasion only, i'll take the $100 hit from my referral earnings so that you can have that discount Ed. If Gadi or Guy can confirm this is OK, then i'm sure we can make sure you are content. As long as you recognise you are taking that $100 from my kids inheritance  Tongue

respect.
