I'm surprised you haven't had a visit from the local PD or FBI, electric like that trips them off to grow lights!!

I don't think that happens as much these days because local PD and FBI especially are in cahoots with the NSA and have access to purchases made and websites visited.  They would know if grow lights, etc, were purchased on the web or else where through credit card bills and electronic bank records.  The 4th amendment is gone.  We no longer have privacy.

they just do a few fly bys with infrared  and you show as white on there gear.

They then will see you  do it 24/7/365 and they know you are not growing plants .

Now put your gear on a 13 hour on -  11 hour off timer and you will attract some extra attention.

Yes, you have a good point there.

Big plans, that's cool.  That's actually what I am planning right now, starting with a dedicated 200A next week and another 200A in a few months.  Then I'll see.  Electrician is coming next week but first I have to install some infrastructure (utility pole for the new electric line, underground wires, etc.) It is an exciting project, and with summer coming, wife, kids and friends starting to complain about the heat, I have no choice but moving my miners out of the 4 houses I'm using right now for all of them.   Wink


200Amps of miners will be crazy hot , i have only 60Amps and the heat is insane , my 2nd floor gets to 89 degress when its only 50-70outside

The two 200A panels won't be here in my home, the noise and heat would be intolerable.  I found a place that I rent on a farm, some kind of huge garage with no isolation and great ventilation, where I will install my little mining farm.  A farm within a farm, isn't it poetic?   Grin



Sounds great!!!

What are your electricity costs per kWH?

Around 0.07$ per kWh, which is ok but I wish it was 0.04$ per kWh like in Washington.  But up here in Quebec, temperatures don't get as high as down there.  Hydroelectricity is cheap and temperature is cool, ideal for mining.  Smiley

And women are hot.  Wink

There are places in Washington where power is less than 2 cents a kw/h.  I'm working on renting out part of an old fruit packing plant right now just to host my own farm, even with rent it'll be WAY cheaper than running them in portland where its 13 cents a kw/h

7 cents per kWH still isn't bad at all.  Much better than my present 10.5 cents per kWH in Alabama.  It will jump up to 12.1 cents per kWH from June through September here in Alabama.  I'm totally ready to move to Washington State.  I'm waiting for a couple of things to fall in line personally before the move.  They could fall in line in the 3rd quarter or may not occur until the 4th quarter.  The sooner the better in my opinion of course.

Yes, the temperature is nice in Quebec.  Hydro is a bit cheaper though in the 3 counties I'm eye balling in Washington State.  It's among the cheapest in the world.  I'm sure the women are hot in Quebec.  However, I'm marred with a 4 year old son.  I don't want to muck it up.

Yes, 3 counties are like that.  However, one of those counties has a moratorium on anyone requesting more than 1 megawatt at one location.  That would be Chelan County Washington PUD.  I'm looking at another county.

Yeah, its been a real issue, I got tired of dealing with the PUD in Chelan and Douglas and started looking for buildings with big power that were empty.  Old supermarkets, factories, packing plants etc.

Since you are a farmer on a farm you should be able to take part in the IRS tax cuts for farmers!!!  Cheesy

LOL!  I wish.  I actually wouldn't even try asking... Wink

New firmware came out

https://bitmaintech.com/support.htm?pid=00720140930114518599JXGHWWD80660

initramfs.bin.SD-20150415.tar.gz

add anti-DDOS function.
improve minerlink function.
MD5: 71CADFCA76E20A667CC740D5C81EBE5C

Does that mean the S4 has minerlink now? Any brave souls?

Anti-DDOS function?  Huh What the fuck!?

How about fixing voltage control and the J7 hashboard which is constantly overvolted to 0765 and completely uncontrollable??? That hashboard increases power usage by a lot, costing each and every S4 owner more electricity than a properly working S4 would and killing potential profits!

BitmainWarranty, can you please get us more details other than something something DDOS and improved minerlink? How is something improved that wasn't there in the first place, BTW? Guessing this FW adds it.

yes.. anything under 70C is pretty good.  Are you sure it's hashing at 55C?  Wink

What's your ambient?

Its in my house in an empty office so Ambient is about 65F, screen output (on the front) says 55C. Running latest firmware and the fans are of course at roughly the speed of light.

That's way too hot for such a low ambient temp. Check for dead fans, dust, etc. I had a unit that reported much higher temps than normal, I had to change the hashboards to keep the fans from running all out. It was a good 20c higher than an S4 sitting next to it at the same settings. You can also use --bitmain-homemode to reduce fan speeds.

I guarantee that if you have 4 working fans and it isn't clogged with dust, at least 1 of your boards are reporting incorrect temps.

Ok, re-imaged the SD card and the update worked this time. Firmware seems to run a few GH/s faster, and minerlink has been added.

Now to bust out the DMM to see if the voltage is "fixed".

But at least your S4 is safe from DD4BC?  After BMT's encounter with the ransom this year, I would assume that was put in for their own farm's protection, not ours.  Removing voltage control, well that was removed for our own protection  Roll Eyes They haven't learned yet that people cannot be saved from their own stupidity I suppose...

2cents /kwh sounds too good to be true.  We pay 10cents here in the midwest, god knows what it will jump to in the summer and I refuse to turn on cenntral air to cool the basement this year.

I would be making a killing at those electricity rates but im basically stuck here since I cant move.
