Looks like it is hashing, but there is no information and I cant tell if it is working correctly. Is this a modified cpu miner?

Asiabtc's ASIC review, part 1


I received the unit today and unpacked it, only to discover that I do not have the proper equipment for the connections. Lucky for me, I managed to figure out an easy way to power the unit by using one of the PCI-e to molex connectors that comes with video cards (I have several of these around because of my rigs).


Unpacked the equipment, nice box/shipping container!









The power cord requires +12v and according to the documentation if using for scrypt mining it only takes 8W, small enough for my PSU so I rigged a PCI-E to molex connector to work with this. (Notice I have the picture of me holding a fan in the first pic for reference, just to double check which wires go to what)

Me holding fan wires for reference (the yellow wire is REALLY hard to see, look closely)



The alterations I made to make the connection. NOTE: Need yellow molex to red wire and black molex to white (also make note, the connector I used had 5 wires. I wrapped the 3 extra individually then wrapped all 3 together)




Last picture of it connected to my rig




At this point, I re-reviewed the documentation. As soon as I plugged everything in and powered it on it asked me to instal a driver (win 7 64 bit). I instead went to this site and downloaded the appropriate material.

http://www.diffpair.com/lightningasic/


The instructions were hard to follow, but I managed to get the driver installed. At this point in time I couldnt update the firmware because it was not working properly. I instead decided to try to start mining with cpuminer (the one in the link above, it seems to be a modified version) and it looks like it is working. However I can not see any hash rate on cpuminer (or at least this ver) and from my testing from pointing it towards pools it is not working properly yet.

At this point in time, I dont think it is working properly. Maybe the firmware needs to be upgraded? I'm not sure. I will continue to work on this and post results back.

Part 2

I managed to get the firmware update working. It took some fiddling with the hardware (was a restart at first, but I think it took a unplug and plug back in of the ASIC), but it looks like it is working now. Here is the new results after downloading the firmware.





Notice that is seems to be accepting shares, but it is showing 0 kh. Will post back in 20-30 minutes after keeping it pointed towards a pool to determine is it is really working.

Got results sooner than expected, and it looks promising (removed some personal info from the pic).





So far the only issue I have is that since this apparent modified version of the cpuminer does not show hash rate, and pools are a poor indication of hash rate, I have no way of telling the true hashrate of this item. I will leave it on overnight in the pool I am pointed too and hope that I can get hash rate over time and get an average amount. Other than that I dont know how to test hash rate.

Depending on what The Mage comes up with, I'm proposing a USA-based group buy of these units.  I guess we'll have more info tomorrow, but we should act quickly after that.

TheMage, you overcame the power problem without the use of USB hubs or power supplies as shown in asiabtcs pics, but you may encounter issues with the single USB miner without the wiibox .  I am not sure if you can dual mine without the wiibox plus the relay box ( http://bbs.diginforce.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=51&extra=page%3D1 ).  It makes it difficult to do a full review without all the pieces, but you are doing a hell of a job.

Good luck.

I spoke with AsiaBTC last night, and he said 10x units (including all hardware, PSU, controller, cables, etc.) would cost $2600 USD, plus another $150 for shipping.  Basically, it's 3000 Khs at $0.91 per Khs.
