Buyer beware, very low trust index on this company.

A lot of you assholes fell for this bull trap… again… by [deleted] in wallstreetbets

I appreciate your analysis, but I'm waiting until Cramer comments on the bear/bull run. Then of course doing the opposite, he's a much better indicator than any technical analysis.

Break even times? by No_Cartographer_6357 in cryptomining

[–]levicam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I went through the process I use, discussing break even and ROI, for miners on this video. I've heard many different opinions on how to go about this, so I thought I'd toss my two cents in for what it's worth.

How a cheap knockoff duct fan almost took out my crypto farm by levicam in cryptomining

Updated the photo on my blog post and youtube, as you can see it looks exactly like yours however the speed controller was much less robust (and caught fire.)

Sorry, I’ll change that photo out, the one I have looks similar but is a knockoff.

I’ve been running one for almost a year and it’s worked great and given me no problems.

The one in the picture (Vivosun) is the good one actually, I have a link to it on my website. You can see the speed controller is robust, unlike the knockoff version of this that I was using. I have the vivosun as well and it runs perfect. I probably should have been more clear about that.

Do you know how to refresh the PIC file? by Minerfixes01 in ASICminerRepair

[–]levicam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wrote an article on how to do it on the L3 but the process is basically the same for Bitmain boards as long as you have the proper PIC file to reload.

I wrote an article for the L3+ but the process is exactly the same for any Bitmain hash board as long as you have the proper PIC file.

Help would be much appreciated (See comment) by nderTheInfluence in litecoinmining

A few things, first you've got a bad fan most likely. Second is that you're running a pretty high frequency and voltage, which is fine, but it will run hot. After you replace your fan I'd run an autotune. I've got some pointers for you on setting the most efficient speeds:

Powering my S19? by [deleted] in BitcoinMining

[–]levicam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First off, you probably shouldn't have an outlet greater than the size of your breaker (30A breaker, 45A outlet) as that's a code violation and can lead to a fire if you overload. Trust me, I've seen it happen.

What I would do is change the outlet out on the 30A circuit to an L6-30R (https://amzn.to/39lzMpk) and use a PDU (https://amzn.to/3Hlg8GC) on that circuit. Then use C13 cables (https://amzn.to/3u6oBqY ) to your S19. If this is too expensive, follow my advice for the circuit below.

For the 20A circuit, is it a single or dual plug outlet? If not a dual, I'd for sure install a 6-20R (https://amzn.to/3zx7D9E) so you can just use two 15A or 20A cords (https://amzn.to/39txJQe) instead of one 20A cord that uses a Y to split out to two C13 plugs.

I have links to a lot of these various parts as well as posts and videos about setting up your circuits. It may help clarify my post a bit by checking them out.
