The bitcointalk.org forum is great and contains lots of info about the bitcoin, market, software, hardware, and so on. It’s a worldwide community and most people are sharing lots of info and help people who have some problems or questions.
Recently I bought 10 Hashbuster Nanos and today I took 1 board away from my tower and started to experiment with it. Try to get it hashing at a higher rate. Standard hashrate is bewteen 2.5 and 2.7 Gh/s. On the board you can play with the voltage which feeds the ASIC chip. Higher voltage means higher hashrate but also more heat! So (extra) cooling is essential. Bitcointalkmember XBOCT posted some very useful tips and tricks.
I did several tests with the board:
- 0.981 V -> hashrate: 2.5 – 2.6 Gh/s = stock / unmodified
- 1.025 V -> hashrate: 2.6 – 2.7 Gh/s = test run #1
- 1.050 V -> hashrate: 2.7 – 2.9 Gh/s = test run #2
- 1.124 V -> hashrate: 2.9 – 3.07 Gh/s = test run #3 going nuts
What the maximum voltage is for the ASIC-chip I don’t know, I have to find out later. Have the guts to nuts and just do some crazy experiments 🙂 Continue reading
