IV. Testing

In the test, the temperature is 21 degrees and indoor noise around 39dBa.

Besides of necessary input, we use the default setting of configuration.

The average hash rate is about 6.6-6.7T, the curve of hash rate is stable and there is no big fluctuation.

V. Summary

1. The Lightningasic miner is low weight and it is only 2.8 kg. The compact design makes it deploy and delivery easily.

2. Easy to install and configure.

3. The operation is stable for a long time and the curve of hash rate is stable.

4. The power consumed is about 778W at the hash rate at 6.6-6.7T. The performance is at the leading position of the industry.

5. With two air cooling fan, the noise is slightly higher and measured at 71 dBa. As the fan speed is adjusted by the temperature, if the room temperature is lower, the noise will be lower accordingly.
