I would also be looking for kits, initially probably 20 x K1`s and a few K16`s to see how I get on. I will probably get most of my chips assembled by a third party to get mining quick then play with some K1`s, if a K16 works well I shall do all my own from kits with future chip orders.

Looking at the pdf`s and terra`s photo of populated board https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=198489.msg2487159#msg2487159
Is probably enough to get me going so dont waste too much time on it..

So even a complete newbie should be able to use/set these up effectively even with the board-only option?


Its hard to comment on the intelligence of a newbie, I guess if you can install a graphics card and get it mining then ur probably be ok.

Boards & parts alone are about $35,then a heatsink/fan,not sure how much,maybe $10 ??

Full K16 boards & thier chips are currently 1.99 BTC=$200 approx as of today.BTC @ $100 now.

http://terrahash.com/product/4-5-ghsec-module/

No case,PSU or cables. Pretty good deal  Wink

Yes its a very good deal, enough to make me question why I bothered with the group buys..

and it does seem terrahash has most of his ducks in a line, except of course the first one - BKK has not tested his own pcb yet.

Now I have great faith in BKK and am sure he will get us there in the end - I just wish terra would hold back from pre-order until there is a hashing psb. Mostly because I promised my wife I would not spend any more until there was products shipping..(i`ve already broken that promise twice now i think) shhh

P.S.  Terra that board is f##kin sexy well done,  can`t wait to see it populated and tested - Good luck

Just checked out your site and unless my maths is $hit
you are selling the chips at cost and assembly and board for .75 BTC

This seems way to cheap, are you gonna review these prices?

Not your maths, but your eyesight is shit. 0.75 is for assembly only, where you provide the chips.


Ok maybe I should have better punctuation.

You are selling the chips at cost. =  Why outlay 800 BTC and not make some profit?

Assembly and board for .75 BTC   =  Very reasonable price.

If Assembly and board were .75 on a group buy then fine. This just seems some tight margins for a business.

NOTE : on further investigation I must note it appears this only works with laser toner printers ( if you don`t have one then print with an Inkjet then photocopy it).

Some report printing on glossy magazine paper works best and i have read passing the stencil and print a few times through a laminator instead of an iron.

I might have a play with this shortly if someone can point me in the direction of the relevant file on github and suggest the software I would need to open it ?

The basic maths being Ohm's law. Anyway, you need to pay attention to wiring and plug amperage capacities if you use a lot of splitters to feed your boards from a high amp/watt rail. You may have to modify the psu.


For those who dont know this may help...


      V                  W
----------        --------
   I   X  R           V  X  I

W= Watts        V= Voltage     I= Current  R= Resistance

Therefore:

V = I X R  :  I = V/R  :  R = V/I

Example

If Voltage = 24V and Resistance = 1.2 Ohms  then

I=   V/R      I=   24/1.2   I =  20 A

W= V x I    W= 24 x 20  W= 480 W

sorry one more question? if we buy on website does the chip money still go to the escrowed address and i guess the board coin to another address??
993  Bitcoin / Group buys / Re: [Group Buy] 0.081 - Avalon Chips - Escrow by John K. (Europe / RO) + PCB on: June 09, 2013, 01:08:12 PM
Websites lookin good steve!

1. Have you also considered doing the K1`s if not how about a K1 kit, I would love to have a go at these babies.

2. For those of us in first batch do you require us to order board on the website at this stage ?

3. Will you be donating any test chips to Burnin and Bkk ?

1. Not yet, i have planty of work to do even with only the K16. But you could ask around (if you wish to help) and if there's enough demand, i'll create an offer for those too.

2. Yes, now would be a good time to oder batch 1 PCBs. You can place the order on the website, it's simple and easy.

3. No, because i also need to test the boards myself. I will create them from schematic, right here in Romania. I will be donating a fee to BKKCoins for every PCB assembled here, though. Already talked to him and we made a verbal deal.

ref 2
Just watching the price of coin dropping - have you allowed for this on your pcb price? I dont want you out of pocket after so much hard work. Am waiting on a transfer so will be able to purchase boards in the next couple of days/ or more chips, damn chips or boards Huh chips or boards Huh

Okay, this is news to me. I have 6( or was it 7? ) group buy's worth of chips ordered, and so far there's not even a chirp from them.




I hope the group buy i am in, is not the one you can`t remember !!!

 Cheesy
996  Bitcoin / Group buys / Re: Avalon ASIC CHIPS Groupbuy AUSTRALIA on: June 04, 2013, 02:20:02 AM
Hi people of Australia. I understand you want your own group buy, but I have one in Asia, in the Philippines specifically. Is that too far away or you just really want your own? (because you are your own continent or something).

We'd get orders faster if we combined them.

Philippines is too far to hunt you down if you run with a big bag of chips  Wink

Seriously, i`ll look into your group buy for smaller amounts thou.

Am most interested in local when things get going as it would be easy for repeat bulk orders and I could pick them up if needed.

I know you dont have time to read all threads so :-

https://forums.butterflylabs.com/announcements/3014-butterfly-labs-announces-bulk-chip-sales.html


Grade A: 16 Engines - $97/chip
Grade B: 15 Engines - $93/chip
Grade C: 14 Engines - $89/chip



If you have a clone maybe you could set him to work on this, otherwise stay focused on the x16 Smiley
998  Bitcoin / Group buys / Re: Avalon ASIC CHIPS Groupbuy AUSTRALIA on: June 03, 2013, 09:14:22 AM
I have already committed elsewhere also. However once I see a working unit and chips being released I would be looking to invest more (maybe 5% of order) is there 19 other like minded here in aus??
999  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Klondike - 16 chip ASIC Open Source Board - Preliminary on: May 23, 2013, 12:07:27 PM
Bkk, Perhaps if you could put an address up we could all chip in for that scope/test boards

+1 on the firmware idea

BkkCoins is receiving a percentage of every miner produced through me. I sincerely hope everyone who is planning on using the Klondike design understands the amount of talent, expertise, and labor involved in producing a mining solution from the ground up, and gives credit (and coin) where it is due.

We as a community would not be in the position we are if it were not for people like BkkCoins who are willing to contribute to the network.

Remember ladies and gentlemen: Those who serve best profit most.
I've added a fee for BKKcoins for every board that will be processed trough my PCB and assembly service.

I think everyone should give at least there first 24 hrs of mining direct to BkkCoins address as recognition for his efforts (on top of fee on board).

BKKcoins - would you please post a list of approved distributors when things are final so we know your receiving you share of credit for the g8 work your doing.
  
Keep up the good work.

Easiest way to do that is having a mining pool set up so 100% goes directly BKKCoins. I would definitely do 24H on the pool for testing the units before I allow them to be purchased. It could be a CLOSED invite only pool for those who are contributing directly to BKKCoins Klondike board development. If many board makers agreed to this maybe BKKcoins might be interested in keeping development going into Klondike II with the second gen chips? Bonaza!

Am sure no reasonable person will mind there shipping delayed 24hs whilst its put through its paces and if they can see it hashing away even better..  Lets face it when you`ve been waiting for months for BFL who cares about 24 hrs..
