Dash Antminer D3 19.3 Gh ASIC Miner Review

Dash Antminer D3 19.3 Gh ASIC Miner Review

Dash was born in 2014. Compared with Bitcoin, it has the characteristics of higher anonymity and faster transaction speed. In August 2017, Bitmain officially launched Dash Antminer D3, a new ASIC miner launched by Bitmain for a single encrypted digital currency after the Bitcoin and Litecoin miner series. Here ZEUS MINING has conducted a comprehensive evaluation of it, and then let's take a look at the performance of D3!

Appearance and workmanship

The outer packaging of Antminer D3 is packed in an industrial carton. When you open the outer box, you can see that the miners are protected by shock-proof and anti-collision bubble wrapping pads, which ensures that the miners will not be damaged during transportation.
miner package
Antminer D3 adopts a dual-fan, three-hash board miner design; the body is integrally formed, a precision die-casting design, and aluminum alloy material, which provides robust protection for the hash board chip and improves the overall heat dissipation efficiency of the fuselage.

Looking down from the top of the miner, you can see that D3 has three hash boards, each of which has three PCI-E6pin interfaces, and you can also see three data lines from the hash board to the control board.

From the front of the miner, you can see the IP address feedback button, network cable interface, reset button and status indicator, and other configurations (as well as the Antminer D3logo and QC label). In addition, the fan with a diameter of 12cm can be seen on the front, and the air is fed from this side.
From the miner's back, the miner's cooling fan can be seen, and the air is released from this side.
D3 uses Bitmain's self-developed chips, and each hash board has 60 BM1760 chips. The overall structure of the miner is very compact. However, the interval extension between the hash plates brings a larger heat dissipation area. The interval also forms a unique air duct inside the miner, which can maximize the use of the fan and the structural cavity to push the heat dissipation effect to the extreme.

Installation and debugging

The power supply for this test uses Antminer APW3+, and the mining pool uses Antminer Pool under Bitmain. For the connection of D3 miners, please refer to the AntMiner D3 Manual.

Heat and noise

Antminer D3 adopts PPLNS mining mode. The test site is a conference room with an area of about 30 square meters. The room temperature is 28 degrees. Heat and noise tests are performed after the miner runs for 24 hours.
At a distance of 10cm from the air outlet of Antminer D3, the measured noise of miners was 88dB, but the noise dropped to 70dB at a distance of 1 meter. After closing the door, there was no more obvious sound.

After running for 24 hours, the temperature of the D3 hash board is 64 degrees, and the chip temperature is 84 degrees in the miners backstage, which are all within the normal range.

The official hash rate of the Antminer D3-19.3G version is 19.3G. The actual test's average hash rate is around 19.41GH/s, which is higher than the nominal value. The power of the Antminer D3-19.3G version in the actual test is 1278W, and the power consumption per G hash rate is 65.8W/G.
As of January 2022, according to the PPLNS revenue model of AntPool, the revenue of a D3 24 hours a day is $0.70, the daily electricity cost of D3 is -$3.89 and the daily revenue is about -$3.19.

Overclocking test

The default operating frequency of Antminer D3 is 537M, the miner's frequency is set to 650M, and the overclocking operation is performed. After running for a while, the D3 hash rate increases to about 22.7G. At this time, the hash board and chip temperature are higher than that of the default state high; the hash board temperature is 74 degrees, the chip temperature is 97 degrees, and the power rise is 1589W. Under overclocking, the power consumption per unit hash rate is 70W/G, slightly higher than the default operating frequency. Therefore, long-term overclocking is not recommended.

Summarize

The overall performance of the Antminer D3 is surprising. The power consumption per unit hash rate is as low as 65.8W/G, and the hash rate remains stable under long-term work. D3 also shows good strength in overclocking.
Antminer D3 continues Bitmain's quality of fine craft, the product runs stably, and the installation is very convenient. The actual runtime hash rate will be slightly higher than the standard. D3 is not very noisy. After closing the door, there is no noise. It can also be used in civilian rooms.

How to use Antminer BM1387 tin tool to replace damaged chips?

How to use Antminer BM1387 tin tool to replace damaged chips? In the repair work of the h ash board, the most common problem is to replace the ASIC chip, which  is the most easily damaged part of the h ash board. In this article, I will use A ntminer as an example to show my friends how to use Antminer BM1387  tin tools to replace damaged chips?  Although there are many chip models, most of the pin positions and sizes are the same. ASIC chips are usually small in size and the pins are arranged closely, which brings great difficulty to maintenance and replacement. Because when replacing a new ASIC chip, it is necessary to accurately apply solder paste on each tiny pin, then heat it to melt, and finally fix it on the h ash board. For how to solve this problem, after various attempts, we finally chose a convenient and efficient way: making professional tin tools (ASIC tin tools). Its principle is to fix the chip on the base, then use a special steel mesh to align the pins of the chip, and

What is the Antminer BM1489 ASIC chip?

What is the Antminer BM1489 ASIC c hip? Antminer  BM1489 ASIC chip is an ASIC chip on the Bitmain Antminer L7 hash board for mining Litecoin and Dogecoin. In the integrated circuit industry, an ASIC is considered an integrated circuit designed for a specific purpose. The characteristic of ASIC is to design and manufacture special integrated circuits according to user requirements. The chips used for mining are called ASIC miner chips. Compared with general-purpose integrated circuits, ASICs have the advantages of smaller size, lower power consumption, improved reliability, improved performance, enhanced confidentiality, and reduced mass production costs. In terms of mining hash rate, ASICs are tens of thousands of times or higher than contemporary CPUs and GPUs, so ASIC chips on the market are also more popular than them. Image courtesy of ZEUS MINING For example, Bitmain Antminer L7 , which is currently sought after by the market, is a standard ASIC miner, and it is the best choice f

What are the common procedures for repairing Antminer L3+ hash board?

What are the common procedures for repairing Antminer L3+ hash board? Common repair process 1. Routine inspection: First of all, visually inspect the hash board to be repaired to observe whether there is any displacement, deformation, or scorching of the small heat sink? If any, you must deal with it first; if the small heat sink is displaced, remove it first, wash off the original glue, and re-adhesive after the repair is passed. Secondly, after the visual inspection is no problem, the impedance of each voltage domain can be tested first to detect whether there is a short circuit or an open circuit. If found, it must be dealt with first. Thirdly, check whether the voltage of each voltage domain reaches 0.8V, and the voltage difference of each voltage domain shall not exceed 0.05V. If the voltage of a certain voltage domain is too high or too low, the circuits in the adjacent voltage domain generally have abnormal phenomena. Need to investigate the reason first. 2. After the routine te

How to check and replace ASIC miner cooling fan and PSU cooling fan?

How to check and replace ASIC miner cooling fan and PSU cooling fan? Miner fan or PSU fan is almost the most vulnerable component because of the continuous work of miners. High-strength and high-speed working methods can easily cause damage to its bearings and internal coils. When the fan is damaged, the miner or PSU will lose heat dissipation and cannot work or damage the chip. Therefore, regular inspection and replacement of bad fans is an essential job of maintaining miners. Both ASIC miners and GPU miners use a large number of cooling fans. Depending on the device model, the fan specifications used are also different. Normally, the most common fan sizes are: 4cm, 6cm, 12cm, 14cm. The standard voltage is 12V, the current is 0.27A to 7.2A, and the power cord is 2 to 6 pins. The specific size of the fan to be selected needs to be determined according to the device. When these fans fail, it isn't easy to detect from the appearance because one piece of equipment is equipped with 2 t
