Weird. The one that was throttling was loaded with the 864 firmware (arrived that way from BFL).

EDIT: and it works beautifully with the 832 firmware! yay@!@

After heatsink mod and fixing dried out white paste on the chips I was able and am able to hit 864 at a 75F room temp, my intake temp is slightly lower at 74.8F.
Increasing the baudrate on the com port (shouldn't matter) got 860.4 with an 864 bitstream. I would say it seems to make a small difference as I had shown 858-859 before.
Interesting the one I got that had three fans (Two internal, One external) and was running an 816 firmware. Now it works great.

I appreciate donations at ( 1NwkQdmomQPLtdes5KuZhB1D22p7ZGRy4p )
If I am helping in the CGMiner thread give it to Con or Kano. They do the work there.

How difficult of process was it to do the heatsink mod (and what did you mod?) and change the paste?

I had a dead bottom fan on one of my singles. That small POS that makes the singles whine. I was trying to sleep when the single woke me up with that nasty rattling sound. Got rid of the housing, turned the top fan and added a spare 120mm fan to the side. Mission accomplished !

Weirdly enough when I touch the case of my single wrong (particularly on the underside) it starts making a wretched rattling noise. I'm not sure where that bottom fan is interfering but I have been trying to figure it out. I ended up just placing it out of the way and have been avoiding moving it  Undecided

Same exact problem. case noise related to the bottom fan on rev 2 unit. time+vibration=noise I guess. not defective, just inconvenient.

This happens because the poor mechanical design of the Single leaves too little space between the case and the fan, so the blades sometimes touch the case.

I fixed 2 of my Singles exhibiting this pb by adding 4 washers between the 4 bottom standoffs and the PCB, pushing the bottom side of the case further down by another extra 1mm.

If there weren't already 10x too many BFL threads, I'd propose one on the most bodged/warped/dremeled cases.

I'm feeling so loved today.  First, copumpkin, and next, pir8 gives me +1s.  Can I spend these?  No.  Put BTC in my account if you agree so much. Tongue

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Didn't Butterfly claim they don't mine with our equipment? It looks like they still make up 8% of eclipse.

FeFox,

I am hoping this doesn't become an issue (17 vs. 18 units).

Seems they are deciding based on the performance of each board.  Some hit 1315 +/- and others hit 1493+/-.  So long as they are delivering the >26 Gh/s they have revised the specs to I am indifferent.

Troubling part is your client showing 25.03 Gh/s -- like it should have another unit...

All the rigs I have seen have 17 units in them. Are you saying there are some 18 unit rigs out there?

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

All of the rigs shipped to date contain 18 processor cards.  Some of the cards run faster than others, so if we end up with 17 fast cards, we'd be able to ship just that in a spec met unit.  However, the averages indicate 18 will be the number.

The devices run on the USB chain which can take some time to be recognized by the host computer.  If the mining application is started before they all come online (depending on the software), some lesser number will report for duty.  It's also important to consider the USB hub count in the chain up to and inside the host computer.  For example, you can plug a mini rig into a host computer's USB port A and see all 18 devices, yet plug it into USB port B and see fewer.  (We've only seen this in one case).

Hmm... just got my Single today in the mail (excited!!). Easy miner, however, only lets me choose the radiobubble for "Administrative Options". All the others are greyed out. I can, however, mine with BitMinter, and firmware upload works great. How do I enable mining straight from EasyMiner?

In addition... I ran diagnostics, and kinda surprised at the results. 34 throttles (my room is cold... 68F), and 5 errors on the 100 test :/. Did I do something wrong? Sad
