I just bought this with 2 delta.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HG9AB1G/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Will see the result soon!  Wink

it says it can do 30 watts the deltas use around 15 watts at top speed.  So as long as you run the fans a bit slower it should handle 2  deltas.

Oh my bad. Didnt even take a look at the watt  Shocked

Thanks philipma1957

Just use 2 fans and back off a bit on the power should run 24/7/365

If you try doing 4 fans it will melt.

I was wondering will it be possible to modifie one file to modify the fans setup.

I mean, the fan go full power at 50. Could we change it to 60??

That will gave us less noise for better result.

You can try that :
https://mega.co.nz/#!ZJEjFJRY!awxh5ae_tf48FjAHukaLycifwRxjJjL-vCQ2ILBDi94
(I didn't test it)

To use it see my post here it is the same manipulation for the S5 :

Stock S5 is 74 db, its a lot! You need to change the fan to drop the sound.

Delta seems to be the best one!  Wink

Holy cow, one fan makes that much noise. I was a little interested in picking one of these up, but a constant noise that high is a problem. Technology will take care of the electrical problem (how much they hog up), but what's going to take care of cooling these things silently. Whoever makes something like that will have a winner!



the solution or solutions were posted on multiple threads, if you want to spend money on one or two extra fans (anywhere between $20 to $40). I went with Noctua 3000(push)/Scythe ultra kaze (pull)-good for at least 1100GH at ~58-59C and ONLY ~46dB;powering Scythe through molex directly off the PSU-piece of cake because it comes with an adapter; Noctua connector fits into the same slot as the stock (you have to clip one rail off the connector because it gets in the way). Phil likes two deltas because he found a good deal (two for $20 now, but you have to use an external additional power supply with voltage regulation or it will be louder than I like PLUS these have an unconventional connector).

I am going to show a different way to power it. using a four pin molex I should be able to do 7 volts and directly connect to the psu on the  4 pin molex connection.

this should allow for freq 350 and sound at 56db 

 compared to stock fan freq  350 and sound over 70db

  i  will post a few photos  later today

New mod photos.  First off I use a evga 1300 g2 I plugged in a molex connector to the psu.  I made an adapter that provides a constant 7 volts.  I then spliced the adapter to the pair of delta fans.  very good sound results and very good hash results.     about 52db and about 1100gh at freq 331.

I did a separate thread for my fan mod
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=927941.0

Mr Teal inspired me to use the  atx psu's with a 4 pin molex cable.  I used the evga 1300 g2  ATX-psu which comes with

1)a trick stating plug.
2) a molex 4 pin cable
3) a floppy disk adapter

the psu is on sale at new egg for  169
a rebate for 30 drops it to 139

Hey guys, i ordered some S5 miners and i got them finally.

I have the fallowing question.
Since i have a lot of PSU's left from my alt GPU mining rigs i will be using them. But since i had a good offer back in the day, all my PSU's are Corsair 1200w Platinum.

Yesterday i tested and at clock 375, one S5 is drawing about 565w of the wall.
So my question is, would it be okay to connect 2 S5's to the one Corsair 1200w Platinum PSU ?

Thanks !

The load will be closed to 93%, but yes it's will work since the psu is platinum.

That would load the AX1200i to 86% which makes it around 91% efficient and leaves you with a 14% headroom.  That's really up to you if your comfy with that.  However, you do have a Platinum PSU.  I'd try it out and closely monitor it for a day or two and see if something is unusually heating up.

Edit:  Sorry...I got dyslexic there for a bit.  It's 84% load with 16% headroom and not 86% load with 14% headroom.  Grin

If I were you I would connect 2 at freq 343  run 6 hours .
  IF ALL IS WELL
 clock the  two at 350 run 6 hours
IF ALL IS WELL
clock the two at 356 run 6 hours
IF ALL IS WELL
clock the two at 362 run 6 hours
IF ALL IS WELL
clock the two at 368 run 6 hours
IF ALL IS WELL
clock the two at 375 check every 6 hours.

Thanks for the answers, i will try it out then Smiley

And one more question about the fan, what if i do no care for the sound ( they are in e different place ).
With what fans could i replace the stock ones for better cooling ?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=927941.0;all


links are in it.  the deltas allow  for fast clocks  and lower sound then the stock.    but this post spot interests me


https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=902305.msg10296057#msg10296057

he has an older dead fan gutted attached to the s-5 then the stock fan without a grill (watch your  fingers)  he has good sound results

No the silverstone is 4 pin pwm it is the pull fan.

I will order this as the push

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KFCRATC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

these two as push pull should work
Looking at the description of the Silverstone 141 there is no mention of it being PWM, only that it has a "PWM header" (ie. 4 pins).  Looking at the fan wiring, I only see three wires -- again indicating not PWM.

So what convinces you that it's PWM?

I installed  and used about 10 of them they run as pwm. you need to doctor the plug a little to make it fit. (shave a small piece of plastic and it fits on the s-5 4 pin header.

I have another thread about final fan mods. I will look for it.

An s-5 with a silverstone 141 pwm fan as the pull and a delta 1212 pwm fan as the push is pretty good for sound and cooling. I just gave up on the entire s-5 line due to pricing ups and down along with the need to do a fan mod or 2 to keep them quiet.

So, you're saying there actually are four wires going to the connector?  Or are you saying the controlled speed of a PWM push fan has the effect of modulating the speed of the pull fan?

PS. A fan can't be PWM controlled without both a sense wire and a control wire.  If less than four wires, no fan can be PWM.

this is a four pin pwm fan. it will scale up and down with your clocking of the s-5. used as a pull with a four pin  delta the s-5 is a nice miner.
