please use molex connector.

the pcie connector is very limited per psu.

What?
The "molex" connector (i.e. peripheral device connector) is only good for about 35 watts, if I remember correctly. The PCIe 6-pin connector is good for 150 watts, however.

Both wrong. Molexes are good for 60 watts 12v and 25 watts 5v. 6 pin PCI-E is good for 75 watts 12v, and 8 pin is 150 watts.
OK, I wasn't sure about the first one, but I know the 8 pin doesn't have any additional current carrying conductors, so technically the 6 pin can handle 150 watts. The 8 pin just has 2 additional ground pins that tell the card that the correct connector is connected.


You're half right. Yes, they both have 3 12v lines, but the extra two grounds on the 8 pin plug signal that the wiring is lower gauge (ie, higher current) and that there is also sufficient grounding available. Putting 150w on a 6 pin PCI-E connector is a good way to fry shit.

This looks like its going to be an awesome expedition. Will you, or your company rather, be in possession of the most BTC?

I would like to say yes, but in the end, its up to the investors.

I think I found a possible alternative to ZTEX quads here

http://www.btcfpga.com/index.php?route=product/product&manufacturer_id=11&product_id=50

Anyone try one yet?

That's too expensive. Why not try this one https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=78239.0 almost half of what that one will cost you, and is still a quad board.

Around $1/mhash isn't expensive, thats the going rate for 45nm FPGAs. Trying to get cheaper than that usually ends with a product that won't last long. $640 for 800 mhash sounds rather impossible.

That said, I'm not going to do business with someone that hasn't proven themselves to the rest of the community. Does anyone even have any of yohan's boards yet?

So when is the 8x version coming out that uses a PCI-E 6 for the power plug.

Edit: actually, since this is all modular, why not a 16x that uses a PCI-E 8, it would really reduce wiring overhead and other bullshit.

And now back to our regular scheduled vote thread.

Yes I see the client I was using mIRC requires 20 dollars before its activated.

I actually downloaded IRSSI when I set up i2p but never got a chance to get it running.

I will look into setting up an IRC channel today.

I will be sure to keep everyone posted.

Thanks for your support!

mIRC is a scam. Just use silverex's build of xchat (not xchat upstream). http://www.silverex.org/download/

Put a channel on freenode, thats where the rest of the community is.

What type of company do you operate? LLC? S-Corp? Sole proprietorship? Does it function alone or does it have a feeder structure? In what jurisdiction are you domiciled? Are you registered as an investment company? Do you issue shares? If so, what is the share structure? Do you have internal by-laws under which you operate? Have you calculated your beta, Jensen's alpha, Sharpe ratio, or other metrics that quantify risk? What benchmarks do you use in your arbitrage? Do you use stop losses? What are some examples of margin rates/requirements you typically deal with? What hedging strategies do you employ?


I operate using bitcoins which is not yet a currency according to the law. I do not operate as any kind of company and I am not registered as a investment company as all my investments are in bitcoin and not in fiat. I do not issue shares or have any kind of share structure. Both the arbitrage and margin trading is not done by me but by a bot coded by someone else, to be honest I do not know most of what your talking about. I am not a professional investor and I have never claimed to be one. I am self taught and am planning to continue to learn and improve as a investor, perhaps you could help me Smiley
Me and my investors do not act under any kind of contract or company/fund. I take it opon myself to invest on the behalf of the investors and I return their profits, my fund is never in fiat and I don't plan to make it fiat due to the legal issues.

That... doesn't answer all of his questions though. It raises more than it answers, really.

We currently have the IRC client downloaded and are operating under the free 30 day trial period.

I definitely plan on registering my account and then I will absolutely set up a channel for future advertisement discussions.

That... was a joke, right? IRC is free!

Did a video helping build interest in your venture as well as the success of the mu ipo.

Check out my post here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=70592.120

Watched the video. Does Deathbylolipop have an IRC channel anywhere?

Yes, he clarified that. Much to my disappointment.

A 51% attack doesn't make much sense, anyways.
That's why it's called an "attack". Derp. When are we going to be rid of the big-government provocateurs and apologists? Sheesh.

Well, hows this. Everyone wants me to do a 51% attack? Fine. Get a share majority, pass a motion. I know you anti-Bitcoin people out there have money, put it where your mouth is.

The server software fucked up and is now letting everyone view the results and it won't let me shut it off.

The only way to fix this? A new thread. Goddamnit SMF.

The previous poll, should I start DMC, ended 49 for, 64 against. However, most of the people who voted against this liked the plan but considered 1m impossible (although they gave no evidence to back up their claims).

So, we're back to voting again. No one can see the results until after the 7 days are up.

I find this strategy far from optimal, spending so much for FPGA is not wise, with such an amount of money you should develop your own ASIC...?

It would cost about $10 million just to get to the first ASIC run unless you want really shoddy chips and/or SASIC (which isn't particularly much better than FPGA). Plus, shitty ASIC or the best SASIC designs at >=45nm is going to be pretty hard pressed to beat 28nm FPGA at mhash/$ and they'll be in the same ballpark for mhash/watt.

So, given that, I'd rather be the first major ASIC customer, and although I'd love for that to be my first gen hardware, I'm not seeing it happen.
