How many days passed between receiving your tracking number and arriving Friday?


48 hours



damn i'm in Minnesota so can't complain if it is that quick for me when the time arrives ..encouraged

Oh, btw.  When I received my tracking number it only took two business days before it was delivered to me in California.

Ok, I'm excited!!! Finally after several months of waiting I received my Jupiter tonight.  It's up and running steady.  The thing is a beast running around 550GH/s.  Just saw it shoot up to 590GH/s a min ago.  Thanks KNC!  

Best ASIC company!  Good luck everyone.  And if you're still waiting on shipment, it is definitely worth the wait!

It looks like multipool.in is down.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I just checked on http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ and it looks like a wide spread problem.

i compiled a short list of what would happen if:
miners would be delivered end of Setember and the difficulty will continue to rise 25% every 11 days (re-target time)


good work thanks :-)
 
Obviously I hope that the difficulty will not maintain the current growth rate, wishful thinking probably.

In any case, if we have our rigs in time we will draw a good profit notwithstanding the growth steepness


My bet is that this does not stay linear.  Nothing ever does.  The only way that this would continue to grow at the same rate is if more powerful mining machines continue to be released.  I don't see that happening in that short amount of time, therefore I expect the diff to plateau a bit.  Probably rendering the more common GH/s units, either the 5GH/s or the 50GH/s units, into the profit realm of 5 to 10 dollars per day just like what is the case with the HD7970 GPUs today.  There will definitely be a saturation point where people choose not to run their units because they don't make a profit.

Im sorry if this has been said before, I did use the search function on this thread to try to find my answer on shipping and import tax.  Just because I am a bit confused, rebelrat said that VAT doesnt exist for the US, another had said there was no import tax, but a solid number on the cost for shipping a KNC miner to the US is not established.  Is there any assumptions or speculation as to what the final cost would be to ship a Jupiter or Saturn from Stockholm to the US?  Thier site states that all shipping costs will be passed onto those who purchase. 

I have never ordered from EU before, so I am a bit unsure.  Thanks!

VAT doesn't apply to US orders, but you will need to pay a small < 1% import merchandise fee.

Ok, maybe a stupid question.

Does anyone know if KNC is charging us the importation costs associated with importing to the US, or will we have to fill out some form and send it to the docks so that our purchases will not be held up in transit?

890 machines or 890 people or 890 orders?

890 ppl ≃ 890 orders != 890 machines

> 890 machines

Great... Just hope that the majority was after you in the pre-order queue.  I am pretty sure that I am at the end of the list with a pre-order in the 1700s.  Sad

Just hope that manufacturing goes quickly as well as shipping...

Hio

The screen flipping on and off is normal when windows first sees the other gpus. If it continues to lose the signal, then its probably the psu.

Run the AMD uninstall utility, then try the 12.11 beta drivers. They have run every gpu mix I've thrown at them. Smiley

I'll try this next. 

My plan 'B' will be to create a virtual pc instance for the 7970.

I was curious what kind of power does your 5970 pull?

Well... I don't know how to check that.  Is there some software that will allow me to monitor the power usage of each card individually?

Ok, wanted to update everyone with an email I received from Sam about the confusion with the pre-order number versus the order number.  Looks like my place in line is, just like was being said before in this forum, based on the pre-order number.  Mine is 1700+ for a 1-500 Jupiter, but I guess there hasn't been a lot of paying customers so my order should still be within the first few days of shipping.

This will be good news for anyone who has a pre-order number above 1700 or didn't pre-register for the 1-500.

Even if you have the cash, debt is a very convenient way to mitigate risk.  I've watched many investors in the last couple years successfully mitigate risk with debt in the bottom of the real-estate market and they are now cash rich millionaires.

As with any investment, you have to weigh the risk.

$7000 dollars is a very small scale in comparison, but say you had 1 mil in the bank.  Would you risk the million or borrow from a bank with only 25% down payment?  Your skin in the game is now 250k.  Much more palatable than going all in.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 11:49:17 PM
Somebody quote me, I've the feeling they will say... First paid, first shipped. This thing is too messy, there are people with preorder ID 2700 who could order a 1-500.

Lets see.

I sent them an email 24 hours ago with this question.  When they respond I'll post on here.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 11:32:21 PM
Have you heard of anyone not being in the 1-500? Pretty much everybody could see that on the Web regardless of their order number, right? Or I'm mistaken?

As an experiment, I created a new account with a different email.  The products page does not allow the new account to order a 1-500 unit.  So only people that pre-registered back in April can make orders for the first batch.

It could be that I'm blowing this out of proportion, but IMO this is a big deal especially for a company charging $7000+ for their products.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 11:30:38 PM
if you could pick the 1-500 item then you are in the first 500.  your order number doesnt mean a whole lot unless you are not in the 1-500 and hoping to get into the 1-500

There is more to it than that.  Everything about my order says that it is one of the 1-500 Jupiter units, but the pre-order number does not reflect my order within the first 500.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 11:27:57 PM
It certainly is messy and I think having pre-orders like #17xx is confusing people, and I can't see how a 1-500 could have one that high.

From what I've read, they said they would match up pre-orders with email addresses so you retain your place in the queue

The pre-order number is the highest you will be, any numbers below you that don't pay within 7 days move you up

So
If you have pre-order #100 and 50 people above you don't pay you move to #50
If you have pre-order #1700 and 500 people above you don't pay you move to #1200

If you haven't pre-ordered, then you go to the end of the queue, so if there are 1000 paid pre-orders paid you are #1001


Right, this is exactly how I'm reading it too.

The product that I think I'm paying for may later turn out to be not the product I paid for.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 11:19:00 PM
I agree..  but they would of had to actually hire a real web dev crew to hash up some code to maintain two order flows.  Nothing too hard; the 1-500 would retain their original place until 7 day toss out and all the others would of started at 501.

they didn't anticipate how anal everyone would be over this which is a mark against them for not really knowing their customer base  Undecided

Hey, I'll be as anal as I want to be, jk.  Lot of money at stake Smiley.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 11:17:01 PM

I think I explained this 10 times already

they had two queues.   the pre-reg and the current placed orders.

you get a 1-500 by your place in the first queue

the second queue started as soon as they took orders.  anyone can place orders. after 7 days, they will sort out the 1-500 customers that placed orders..  if there are any 1-500 customers that didn't use their orders, some of the regular orders will go into the 1-500


This still doesn't make sense.  From my knowledge only people who signed up during the pre-reg can put in an order for a 1-500 Jupiter, but they allowed more than 1700 people pre-reg.  So I guess this means that since I am number 1700+, there is a "chance" that I will not receive the 1-500 Jupiter and the only way to find out if my order of a 1-500 unit is really a 1-500 unit is to pay and wait on them to sort this out.

I guess there is no way to tell then if I will be in getting a 1-500 Jupiter.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 10:56:57 PM

The order numbers being generated now are new.

Once the 7 day window has expired for people to purchase the 1-500 pre-orders then the queue will be sorted so you retain your original position

So if your pre-order is #200 that's the highest it will be, if people with lower numbers don't order you will move up the list

Ok, so if this is the case then because my origional pre-order number back in April is 17##, then I will not get one of the first 1-500 units if everyone pays?

This just seems really odd, why would I pay then if my order for a 1-500 Jupiter will not be fulfilled.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 10:52:59 PM
I guess the preorder ID is worth nothing.  The order numbers of the time they opened the payments are clearly different.


Well the issue goes both ways, trinsic has an order number +1000 for a 1-500 unit.  Would that put you in a back-up status until +501 units go unpaid?
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: June 06, 2013, 10:50:12 PM
Found this statement in the KnCMiner Newsletter:

"Once the 7 days are over we will provide everyone with their final shipping queue placement."

So that must mean that even though my order number is sub 500, since my pre-order number is +1700 that I will not get a 1-500 unit if at least 1200 people before me pay for their units?
