why is there such a big difference between frequencies of the loops:

Code:
LOOP[0] ON TO:0 (w:149)
 0: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:636 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 54W  84A  38c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 710hz(BL: 710)   72 (E:193) F:0 L:0]
 1: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:638 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 53W  83A  51c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 690hz(BL: 690)   77 (E:193) F:0 L:0]
LOOP[1] ON TO:0 (w:140)
 2: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:638 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 57W  89A  63c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 770hz(BL: 770)   79 (E:193) F:0 L:0]
 3: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:638 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 65W 102A  71c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 820hz(BL: 820)   61 (E:193) F:0 L:0]
LOOP[2] ON TO:0 (w:153)
 4: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:638 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 57W  89A  38c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 740hz(BL: 740)   81 (E:193) F:0 L:0]
 5: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:636 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 56W  88A  52c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 740hz(BL: 740)   72 (E:191) F:0 L:0]
LOOP[3] ON TO:0 (w:163)
 6: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:638 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 61W  95A  59c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 790hz(BL: 790)   85 (E:193) F:0 L:0]
 7: DC2DC/1/:[vlt1:638 vlt2:642(DCl:794 Tl:794 Ul:642) 62W  96A  66c] ASIC:[ 85c (125c) 800hz(BL: 800)   78 (E:193) F:0 L:0]

the loops that get hotter (the back ones) get clocked higher and use more power

i havent tried the boot method yet this time. although it didnt seem to help the last time this one failed after a brief power cut.

as to replacing management board/emmc? i am confident if its relatively simple.

Give it a try

5 x SD recovery attempts

5 x 'xmas' alternating leds

0 x recovered

kinda sick of babysitting this thing - the SP20/SP20E didnt miss a beat, so wtf is wrong with the SP30.....again?!

Same problem here, but with an SP20E. It just disappeared from my network, stopped hashing & became inaccessible via ssh, gui or myminer.io. Tried the same as you above as well as the boot SD - nothing. Awaiting response from Barbara & tech support...... Sad

Well, I was more interested in having the pins come out on 16awg for a few inches, than having the three splice together into a single line. of a heavier awg.

I've done this before on some of our early prototype PSUs. It works okay. It's not worth the time it takes to put it together, though, in my opinion, especially if you find a decent source for 16awg PCIE cables that are long enough etc.

I thought the original spec from Molex for the pins in the PCIe socket was the same as the original ATX socket, and I thought that was 5 amps. Does anybody have a more accurate recollection or specification on that? At 240W, that's 20 amps split across 3 pins, and also 3 wires. That's just shy of 7 amps per pin/wire, assuming all is well balanced.

It was originally 8 amps per pin, limited by the Molex connector, for 288 W. More recent PSUs (since 2005) are required to use 11 amp connectors, for 396 W. This assumes 3 pins for each of ground and 12V. The PCIE spec only requires 2 of each to be connected; although many PSUs include a 3rd of each, it is not universal.
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/274631-28-power-spec-power-plug#2674391

The original PCIE power spec as a whole only specified 2 amps per pin, or 75 W total. The 8-pin revision of the spec specified 4 amps, or 150 W total. This is much less than the specifications of the individual components of the connector, which is why we disregard those limits entirely.

If you get xmas lights, this means that the SD card operational.
this means that you should be able to use the boot-sd (even if the mmc got corrupted) and run from SD-card
Even in the x-mass state the platform should be available via SSH.

SD Boot fixed it for me.

As i understand the SD card must remain inside the rig forever..?


For now.
Remo will contact you with experimental SD recovery to try to fix the emmc

Give an inch take a mile...

Having the ability to switch voltage settings by time of day is nice, but how about a way to automatically adjust voltage settings based on which pool connection is alive?  If I'm renting out my SP20 at a rate significantly higher than BTC (mining WestHash at a good time for instance) then I might want to optimize for more hash rate, but when I'm not renting out I want to optimize for power.

This is not essential; it is just a "would be nice" addition.  Yes, I know, feature creep.
