There is a perfect income opportunity for businesses that custom-assemble PCs.

The more reputable ones "burn in" these systems for 48 hours to check that everything is working properly. The "new" way to "burn in" a PC is to have it mining for those 48 hours. Suddenly the cut-throat custom PC business became more profitable!

Would be nice to know things like what PSU it has exactly (mobo could also be nice). And talking about PSU - because you configure it, do you provide some warranty so I can be sure it won't burn within given amount of time, when running only on software prepared by you?

PS. Configured water cooling solution with some kind of warranty would be something really outstanding.

Variance is a bitch!

How much would you charge to assemble a rig with the following specs?  http://bitcoind.org/mediawiki/index.php/MinerHardware

And, what is your warranty policy?

You should consider just putting a 5970 in that low-end rig. It'll be much better than three 5770s.  Also, how are you addressing the card cooling issues with 3 cards in any of these boxes?

More detailed specs will be coming soon. Watch the web pages for updates.

That depends on your view of "better". 3x 5770 will still cost less, especially considering that 5970s are out of production and are going to be hard to get at a decent price very soon.

Also, how are you addressing the card cooling issues with 3 cards in any of these boxes?

Good cases with several fans.

That will not handle the issue of putting the intake fan from one 5970 up against the hot back plate of another 5970.

Sure it will cost less but 3x 5770's do not equal 1 5970...

3 5770s = 2/3s of the power of a 5970. You can go by the number of stream processors they each have. 5770 = 800 stream procs. compared to a 5970s at 3200 procs.

Why is it that your prices are not in BTC? (...with the option to buy in fiat, of course)

We're just starting out, and we're not backed by a large investor. We have to buy all our parts in fiat. Once things get going we can add BTC as an option.

Sure it will cost less but 3x 5770's do not equal 1 5970...

So for someone who doesn't want to spend as much money, 3x 5770s is a better choice.

As a wildly enthusiastic fan of bitcoin with hardly any understanding of the technical side of mining I am interested in this offering.
But I would like to see some 'estimated payback' or 'expected generation' rates presented and open for critiquing by other members of the community.

movies, pictures, anything really. I mine all the time on my computer but I surf the web and do things too, just because it's good at mining doesn't mean you cannot touch it.

Well, I guess that's true but I would imagine most people would just install CLI linux, plug it in the back of a closet and call it a day. At least that's what I have done. I can use another more energy-efficient computer for surfing and I don't have to waste a monitor on the thing.

I don't see someone who is interested in a pre-built mining computer having the knowledge to run gui-less linux on one of these. I think the market for these exists with those who have little knowledge of how to build a computer, which mostly goes hand in hand with not knowing cli-linux. Smiley

Will your machines automatically reboot and start mining again after a power failure?  I think this is an important feature.  Because of the huge power draw (my modest setup is pulling 2 KW continuously from the mains), it isn't practical to run a UPS.  At the same time, you don't want to have to run back to your mining installation if there is a power loss.  The Ext4 filesystem can take it all in stride, but you need to modify a standard ATX PSU if you want it to power up without pressing the power button.

<shrug> After years of building my own computers, I learned the value of pre-built computers with warranties and support.  Plus, my own time has a cost.
