0a) What to Expect (top)
The Prospero X1 by Black Arrow is a small, consumer unit that includes a controller and power supply. It is the only miner on the market that utilises just
one internal ASIC, and also the only miner to have so many ancillary features on a smaller miner.

Chips1x 28nm Minion
Hashrate~100GH
Rated Voltage12V
Rated Current8.3A
Power.Consumption100W

 

      
 
      


0b) What You Need (top)
You will need a few accessories to get started.


                             Click your flag to find everything you need to get started at Amazon!             
                    
                                         


1) Powering (top)
X1s come with an internal 140W AP187 PSU by Sunshine Electronics. Its an unusual formfactor which also uses a 20 pin output to power the miner. This
means you can NOT replace it with a conventional PSU. Please note that it requires a "Mickey Mouse" / Cloverleaf cable rather than the usual C13 - see
section 0b for links.

      
 
      


2) Cooling (top)
The X1 utilises a 200mm CoolerMaster MegaFlow 200 which is near silent during operation. Air is pulled in through the bottom of the case, drawn through
the heatsink and PSU before being exhausted out the top of the case in a negative pressure tunnel arrangement. The Minion ASIC itself features an
aluminium finned heatsink with four copper heatpipes distributing heat.

      
 
      

      
 



3) Case (top)
Each unit is full enclosed in a The S3 is entirely enclosed in an extremely strong aluminium case. I personally had problems with the screws holding my unit
closed, such that many had to be drilled out. This is not likely to be a common problem. Later revisions come with a touchscreen LCD display and full
Android device. A keyboard can be plugged into the miner via USB to help type so the miner can be standalone. Later revisions may also come with an
external Wifi antennae.

An X1 measures 222 x 205 x 80mm and weighs 2.1kg.

      
 
      


4) Configuration (top)
The X1 is standalone and does not require an external controller.

Wiring:
  • Plug in an ethernet cable from the X1 to you router.
  • Plug in the power cable from the X1 to the mains.

Configuration:
  • The unit will automatically power on.
  • The unit will ship with DHCP enabled, and so your router will assign it an appropriate IP address automatically.
  • If you have an LCD model, the IP address will be displayed on the LCD. If not, using a browser, navigate to your router and find the IP it has
    assigned the S3 and navigate to that IP.
  • Login using "user" as the username and "blackarrow" as the password.
  • Select "Prospero" on the left, and then navigate to the "Pools" tab.
  • Click "Add Pool" and enter your pool information in the below format.
  • If you have multiple X1s, you can then copy this pool information to all of them quickly using the "Sync Network" button.

Maybe you can help me.  I turned the X3 off for a couple weeks.  When I turned it back on, it's hashing just fine, I can see my stats on the pool site.  However, I can't access the login.  It used to be 192.168.1.60, but now it just hangs saying there is nothing there.  I just want to change the pool settings.

Any advice would be appreciated!

I am unsure what recovery options you have on an X3, but this is a common problem with the controller. Is there an SD card?

I'm checking into it.  In the meantime, I found a miner manager from blackarrow called Miner operator

http://ecointalk.net/topic/1761-miner-operator/

I'm thinking the software version is out of date.  I'll post here if I have luck with it.  Regardless, it's a nice little program.
