OK, I could not wait so I swung by home during lunch. Got it running with minera, check it out. The dip in hashrate was when I restarted cgminer so I could enable xnsub but otherwise it is right around 500Mh/s for me. Good job pinidea, I am very happy with this.



Also it is much quieter than the DM384M, I registered 68db at 1 meter. The DM384M was 77db at 1 meter. 9db is a huge difference. I can not hear it over the DM.

pinwc4 Thanks for the quick update, with the lower power usage and the design with PinIdeas ASIC should be easier to modify the cooling to make it run cooler and less noisy, much easier than with the four blades of the iBeLink and the 700W of power usage it has. The working temps also seem to be lower with the default cooling than the ones of the iBeLink ASIC.

Thanks. I'm not sure if you would have time to write something up for other users. If you can, that would be great, and we can add to our official documentation repo.

One more note, I am not sure if the hash rate here is sending from cgminer or not. If it is, it is probably not that accurate. As I mentioned in the release note, we observed larger hashrate reported from the mining pool than our caculation. So the real hashrate should be large than 500

Our miners are bit too fast for general central mining pools. Ask the mining operator to open a port with jobRebroadcastTimeout = 4 instead of default 55.

Please read the first page of the thread to find out. :) A lot of treasures are out there.
Sorry, it was really updated from the last time I've visited it :)

And some questions - the info says it needs external miner software + USB connection, but I see an Ethernet RJ45 port on the device - what is it for? And what about NiceHash support?

And - yes, from the specs it's much cooler than iBeLink :)

and what about solomining with NOMP/UNOMP or p2pool node?

Anything supported by cgminer is supported by this miner as well.
well... DASH was mining with SGminer, not CGminer all the time... Yes, for Scrypt it works - but there were problems with iBeLink software for the first batch and they were fixing it. So that's why I'm asking :)

We don't use outdated version which is apparently different from iBeLink. For your questions, other miners would be able to test it once they received the miner. I haven't got mine so far.

So - if I'm ready to buy (500DASH is not a problem) - what's the next step? And if some trouble with customs or something like that - is there any refund? Do you have successful customers from Russia or any guaranties from your shipment partner it will go smoothly?

If you really want to buy, please send message to [email protected] We can go from there, but right now we're still processing some other orders so you'll be in the waiting list for now. And we serve based on the timestamp for the initial contact of email

Well I did not accomplish what I wanted to tonight but for those who are curious here is what the power draw looks like. 315 watts, very nice.



I was hoping to have a minera image for other people done but I am not happy with it yet. It does not start the miner on boot for some reason and I made it on a 32gb card since that was all I had sitting around so the image size is wrong. I will work on it more tomorrow.

What is the English Translation of the error messsage? How did you run it? You're supposed to run it in a shell. It's a command line tool
I started it via Command line. I have posted an English translation already, but in details it looks like this:

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application".

http://freewisdoms.com/how-to-fix-0xc000007b-application-error/


Sure, that can be the reason, but a) it's an integrated Intel video, and b) I try to run cgminer with only "--help", so why can't it start?..

Okay, the issue was fixed. I thought it wasn't. So never mind. the speed is accurate for the current verison

try download from the release page again and check the md5checksum for your zip to see if it is broken

Soleo, great news and congrats on your new miner. I cannot wait to receive mine. It seems there are some windows issues running the software. I'll be running this on a windows 10 PC, that is also using NH miner with a 290 AMD GPU. I'll keep you informed on my progress once I receive the unit.

I was trying to download both .zip and .rar archives, both checksums were OK.

I'll try to run it on other Windows7-PC though in several hours.

First people just started receiving their units and some still haven't even got theirs shipped, so how do you expect to have a detailed review already available!

I expected that the manufacturer will make it before starting to sale. And now - it's just my impatience, 'cause I want this miner so much!..

My miner was damaged. Solarminer as well. They're working out shipping issues.

To be fair they packed it as well as they could. It was wrapped up in lots of foam and two layers of boxes. When I received it four screws were loose and one of the blades was floating so I suspect some damage must have occurred.

Bummer, but I guess since you got a video of it running it is working fine?

Mine had loose screws as well. Which reminds me of something important for people to know if this is the first ASIC they bought.

Always, always, check for loose screws when getting miners. I have ordered many ASIC's and for some reason they commonly arrive with loose screws. I guess between getting shipped around the world and thrown around by shippers things get loose. My DM384M had loose screws, my Avalon's have, AntMiners etc. Just give it a shake and make sure there are none rattling around inside.

One of my boards is dead. Something must have come loose. I don't see any problem with the solder but i dunno. Better to replace it rather than messing with the soldering since I couldn't see any issues from my naked eye but it was the same board that was floating around during shipping.

Pinidea has arranged to send me a new board asap :D

There's also a new binary out to tell u which boards are dead which is helpful.
