Thanks for all the info guys.
I am banging my head against the wall right now, have gone through so so many configs, mining software versions and flavors, different controllers etc. literally everything I have been able to think of and even underclocked by 10% my Fury is consistently giving a 30% -40% error rate with 20% of them HW errors. At the suggested 328 freq I get 60%-70% errors. I can not at any freq get a hash rate above 1.2 (and that is fleeting , never lasting more than a minute or so) even clocked at 344 I get a hash rate around 900 khs (although it fluctuates wildly with readings showing from 6.8 MHS to 30 khs) on the poolside I never get above 1 mhs, ever, no matter what my config.
Adding the --nocheck-scrypt lowered my error rate from the 40%-50% range but still its too high to use.

About ready to RMA it. Any thoughts?
Did I just get a bad one?

Have you tried different pools?  I've found that with these Zeus chip devices you really have to find the right combo of pool + miner software.

Is your OS Windows?

This BFGMiner 4.2.2 https://litecointalk.org/index.php?topic=20477.0 as noted by jekv2 can work really great on some pools.  I can get 1,600 kh/s average on Litecoinpool (straight LTC) with my overvolted Fury.

Dmaxl's first windows cgminer build also works well for me: CGMiner v4.3.5.beta1release  I managed to get one Fury to 1,588 kh/s average on Litecoinpool so almost as fast as BFGMiner 4.2.2.  Cgminer 4.3.5 seems to be compatible with more pools though.  I'm running 1 Fury on CoinKING with Cgminer 4.3.5 beta 1.  I couldn't with BFGMiner 4.2.2.

I tried Dmaxl's second windows cgminer build -> CGMiner v4.3.5.beta2 release on CoinKING but switched back to the first release because it looks like I was getting a few more errors.  It might work better for you.

The options are set differently in BFGMiner 4.2.2 and CGMiner 4.3.5

CGMiner 4.3.5 --zeus-clock 328 --zeus-nocheck-golden --zeus-chips 6 --scan-serial //./COM4
BFGMiner 4.2.2 --zeus-cc 6 --zeus-clk 328 --zeus-rc 300 -S zeus:\\.\COM4

Edit: dmaxl's CGMiner v4.3.5.beta2 release might make it to 1,600 kh/s for me.  My 24 hr avg poolside is heading up.  1,591 kH/s right now.

I'm using dmaxls beta 2 and am getting 1.68mhs on nicehash (381mhz clock).

I like your numbers!

I downloaded and burned the Starminer image yesterday.  I haven't mined with it yet - just booted up the Pi.  I think I'll end up using it.

Dmaxl's beta 2 is pushing the 24hr avg up for me.



I think it was 1,586 kh/s when I started using it 4+ hrs ago and now it is 1,601 kh/s.  WU is at 1,542/m after running 4+ hrs.
I was going to switch pools but I think I'll let this run 24 hrs just to see what it peaks at.

more interesting would be what you get on pool side. The miner/GUI can talk much but the accepted hares are counting Wink

Which RPi GUI image do you recommend the most?
I love BFGMiner but I want a Pi image I do not have to compile and mess around with that I can still overclock and such.  I need this to give a miner to a friend who is not technically inclined at all.
Any suggestion out of everything here?
I would just give him a ZenOS controller but I want it to be independent so he can learn as opposed to just clicking.
Thanks again for the great work.  I use your BFG release with MultiMiner.  So sweet.

8 gridseeds + 2 Fury's on Nicehash.  You can see the large dip in the graph where the 2 fury's were offline (I was using bfgminer but took things offline to flash the new release of starminer and clone/compile the latest dmaxl cgminer), take note of the Minera hashrate (last tab in Firefox) sitting at 3.5Mhs.  I'd say the 2 Fury's are more than pulling their weight...and from the looks of it dmaxl's cgminer work is catching up to the speed of bfgminer.


and btw....I had been using your builds of bfgminer up until this latest release of Starminer (6/27) for mining on Nicehash (you can see the first peaks in the graph - that's bfgminer 4.2.2).  It seems to have some problems with the other pool I use so I have always had cgminer on the sidelines for mining at my other pool.

really nice. so it is good to see that cgminer is now on the same hash level. This solves much pain points in my bfgminer build.

As cgminer sometimes causes issues on my PI (freezes and lags) I am currently stay at bfg and look if I could do something to the community if same issues are recognized.

Hate sometimes my lack of programming such drivers Sad

I am having a problem.

My WU is declining and has been.

This is with cgminer and bfgminer.

I hot plugged the miner in and think I fucked it up. Not sure. Ever since, WU decline below 1.2Mh/s after 12 hours and keeps declining. Never picks back up or increases.

I have it overclocked to 350 with diff of 2048. SHouldn't 350 get me 1.3-1.5?

After hot plugging it. 8 hour run. @ clevermining.


Bout to chuck this thing at the wall.


Somewhere ind the Litecoin-Zeus thread Terry stated that WU has to be multiplied by 1.09 to get the pool side speed. But nevertheless it is really under performing. I also have such a dives...same config but is constantly performing 150kH behind the others Sad

350 might be too high.  Try 340 or try a different build.
Your rejects are high:
A: 593920 R: 26624

Mine look this after approx 12 hrs.
A:1067162 R:7752 WU:1507.6  Beta 1
A:1134848 R:1536 WU:1489.2  Beta 2

That's two different pools.  Beta 1 or 2 will work on one pool.  The other pool get a lot of rejects with beta 2 so I use beta 1.
Are you getting what people are calling a wall of rejects once in a while?  That's what I got on one pool with beta 2.  But beta 1 works on that pool.

Beta 3 was released last night: - Dmaxl's CGminer-4.3.5 Beta 3

I don't set diff on either pool.  The pool adjusts automatically based on my miners.

Get a copy of beta 1 too.  You might find it works best on some pools.

These are harder to get running the way you like right away than Gridseeds for example. (my opinion)
But, once you find the right combo of pool & software they run well.

I'm using CGMINER 4.3.5 with 3 stock Fury's on Clevermining and am averaging 1.42 MH\s each miner. With only 1.2% 'R' and about 5% 'HW'. This is running at 328MHz with a diff of 512. The Fury's have been running solid for 48hrs now.

I have been very happy with my Fury's!!!

Alright peeposss i am back.

Well i did some calculation and i realize, buying 17 sets of Fury = 1 set of Falcon

And it consume less power, cost cheaper.

Cheaper by $500++ and u save 350++W on power.

Do you guys think this is a good plan ? Was planning to do this.. seeking opinion

Personally I wouldn't spend another dime of my hard earned money to support Zeus after their treatment of Batch 1 customers.

However, lets put my history/bias against them aside for a moment....

If you have the money, and you're interested in mining then it seems reasonable.  Did you run this through any kind of calculator to see if/when it could break even?

I think the challenges with that many Blizzards will be the fan noise, cable mess, and if a RasPi can handle that many on a USB hub.

Don't forget 4-5% is the diff today -- However, in Q3/Q4 tons of new hardware coming from KNC, Fibonacci, Alpha, MAT, etc.  So that diff will jump up even more...I'd say we'll see 4-5% through mid-July...and after that we'll start to see some real increases.

Honestly, if I could use 20/20 hindsight to go back to Feb when scrypt-asics first came out with Gridseed hardware -- I would never have bought any ASIC hardware.  Just not worth it.  I would have bought coins instead and just sat on them.  Not as fun for sure but way better investment (in my opinion).  Don't get me wrong, I love mining, tinkering with my miners, learning a bit of linux on my RasPi...but the arms race is only going to get worse...we saw this pattern in BTC and its going to happen again in scrypt: from hobby mining --> small-timer farms --> asic mining --> industrial operations only.

So if you do buy mining equipment, you need to be "ok" with not breaking even or making any profit at all.  If you can't accept that as a very real possibility then just buy the coins and sit on them.

Hotplugging it lately? Screenshot with time. PROOF.

I doubt i can get a fucking refund.

This is a waste of money...

Paid shill.

I am flipping my fury.....
