This time we receive another product of Zeus which called 'Lightning X6'.

  The dimension of this miner:
  Name:Lightning X6
  Hashrate:42-44Mh/s
  Power Consumption:980W
  256 ZEUS CHIPS
  6/8 pin PCI-E 12V input
  1200W modular 80PLUS Gold or Platinum PSU(PSU not included)

1. Package:
The miner's package use a typical air shipment packing,ensure transportation safety.The box and the machine are clearly marked with Zeus logo.

The dimension of the machine:
height:18.3cm
width: 40.5cm
depth: 2.7cm
weight:16kg

 

There is a power line/a USB line/a network cable in the box.

This Lightning X6 asic miner has a power supply,but raspberry pie for the optional.

On another side,there are 3 of 12cm violent fan.

2. Installation:
   There are three ways to install:
   1.connect to pc.
   2.connect to raspberry pie.
   3.connect to TP-Link703 route.

U can easily connect it to the raspberry pi.First,you should insert the SD card(with firmware) into raspberry pie,then connect the miner and raspberry pie with usb line.After that,get raspberry pie and routers connected.
If u want to use PC,that will be simpler:just connect the asic miner and pc with usb line,then boot it.

 

 

 

3.Software setting:

After the power is switched on,the miner will get IP address automatically.u can modify settings through this IP address.

First of all,you should download and install the official driver
here:http://pan.baidu.com/s/1i3n7K7F

Then,open the windows'device manager to view the miner's port number, here I found is com 21.

Extract the downloaded files. Edit run.bat files inside.

Mining Status

During the miner is working,the average hashrate is 42M.

4.Power consumption, noise and temperature test:
Environment:
temperature: 33degree
humidity: 55%
environmental noise: 42dBA

The on wall power consumption of the miner with raspberry pie is around 1070w.(frequency:240).

Noise level at different location: On the side of miner is 80dBA.On the top of miner is 76dBA.

 

The hottest temperature of miner is about 45degree.

5.Internal structure
You can see 8 blades inside and 1050w power supply in the middle.

Each blades has 32 zeuschips.

12cm Violent fan wiht 2pin

6.Summary
No doubt, Zeus Lightning X6 has nice desgin,and suitable for guys who want to buliud their own workshop.Compared with the previous edition,Zeus Lightning X6 has less power consumption and has more hashrate.Lightning X6 power consumption is about 1070w(44M).Thunder X3 power consumption is about 990w(28M).

To be honest,the maximum value of noise is slightly high.But the noise sounds boring.Fans of Lightning X6 are as same as Thunder X3.
On the other hand,Lightning X6 has a big case(4 more blades inside),and lower frequency,heat radiation is at the same level as Thunder X3.

Need to be improved:

Firmware needs further improvement:in the test once we set frequency to 328,causing power overload and shutdown.We hope the firmware could identify the miner automaticly,and could self-regulation for safty.
we also remind that,you should pay special attention to the frequency setting and chip numbers setting,they must be corrected before you click save and run it!
