BFL has more exeperience creating ASIC devices? I call BS. Smiley

They're a market leader in microprocessor design.   It says so right on prweb.

what does:

Reference Design 5870(dead)FAN works fine. 5830(Dead) Fan works


You're including 2 fans that work? are the dead gpus included?
Are both cards reference or just the 5870?

I've seen you mention the $10 - $600 figure, which I think comes in reference to issuing 1099's.  Out of curiosity, how are you planning on handling the IRS reporting?  What 1099 are you going to file?  How are you handling the valuations?

Doing some cursory research it looks like the commodities 1099's (1099-B) are supposed to be issued by your broker, who tracks your USD value when you buy or sell your commodity through said broker.  You are not a broker, and any such 1099 would not come from you, rather, it would come from the exchange used when gigaminers buy or sell their commodities.  (BTC<->USD)

Being a commodity, trading BTC for other commodities = bartering.  When bartering, you are responsible for reporting your own income, unless dealing with a bartering exchange, in which case they will give you a 1099-B at year end.  See:

None of the other 1099's seem to have any relevance to commodities?  And as far as I can tell there's no way you could be privy to how your users make use of their commodities?  Thus any dollar values you report on any 1099's are going to be inaccurate, and worse, could end up screwing your customers.  (eg, you report a value of $12, but when the customer exchanges it they exchange at $6)

Is your lawyer a tax attorney?

The more I read, the more worried I get that your lawyer may be barking up the wrong tree here.  You should not be on the hook for any 1099 reporting.  That responsibility falls on the exchanges.


Edit: I think I figured out the answer.  Giga has to become a barter exchange (threshold is 100 barters in a year) and track current FMV on every barter transaction.  Then at the end of the year he issues a 1099-B with the FMV transactions all added up.  Crazy.

My guess would be a 1099-MISC,-Miscellaneous-Income-

Any plans on getting BAMT updated for future use with BFL SCs or any of the other ASICs miners?

You can add it via cgminer, I have several rigs with both gpu/bfl on bamt, but I doubt there will ever be a fully integrated version like with the graphs/stats. Some notes below on how to update/install. Caution though. You might want to install a fresh bamt build and don't install fix #20 or it will fubar a current build of cgminer, something about "mother" not talking to it correctly after some revision changes or something like that.

I'd suggest these instructions:

will try it also. hope it cannot solve the network connection problem on my current Asus mobo.

if you don't need wireless wifi, remove network-manager

I think luke-jr must have stopped looking in that thread.
No, I just continued ignoring known trolls such as yourself.

The question is also irrelevant.

Uhm, a "little" over the top.  Don't you think? I'd say Graet is pretty well-respected. Calling him a troll brings your credibility into question.

Hi everyone,

i'am having troubled with my 6870 overclocking setup on BAMT.
Configured my rig this morning, i'm used to linux so was pretty easy, and btw thanks to aaronwolfe for his incredible work.

Well i am mining actually but with stock params.
73.0 c   94%   263.57 Mh/s   47 / 0   0.00%   6800 Series42% (2751)   900 Mhz   1050 Mhz   1.175v

I would like to lower mem clock and improve a little bit core clock.
 I changed those params in the bamt.conf file but they arent applyed as you can see on the line above (from Munin), here is a link to my bamt.conf ==>

If you have any suggestions tell me, i can reward you with my little amount of btc!

Have fun mining

i assume this is the only gpu on the rig?  if so, type "atitweak -A 0 -m 1000"  then so a "atitweak -s" and see if it changed.  if, not, then the card won't let you change mem clock.

Windows or Linux?  I was able to set it up on windows okay, you just have to load the WinUSB driver as opposed to the one Windows installs automatically.  It was able to autodetect after that.  My linux rig is on ubuntu 11.04, which doesn't appear to work with BFGMiner, so I haven't tried on linux yet.

windows.  used the driver luke suggested.  bfgminer sees the x6500. Sometimes. bfgminer will program the x6500.  Sometimes.  I've tried running it a whole mess of times, but never does it get far enough to actually start mining.
491  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: X6500 Custom FPGA Miner on: December 01, 2012, 06:26:43 PM
In case anyone here missed it:

BFGMiner now has support for the x6500.


haven't been able to get it to work with mine.

I was wondering if it makes any difference in which pool you join with your Asic as the MH/s will be high?

bumping this because no deals ended up going through

remember these are good for $600 of trade in value for new bfl products and they can mine in the mean time so if ordering anything from bfl why not mine until then?

Interested in all 10. $450 each. Shipped to Chicago.
Escrow only.

@ ssateneth

I would do 7 BTC + shipping costs, but I'm only looking for payment in BTC as I was otherwise going to buy some anyway.  How long would it take you to procure the BTC?  I'm looking to sell quickly, so if someone else jumps in with a higher offer, I might be swayed to sell to them if they are willing to make payment immediately.

@ abracadabra

I'm in the western suburbs of Chicago.

depending on how far west you are, and if you are willing to meet, i'd do 7BTC
496  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTS] 5870 with loose fan on: November 28, 2012, 02:29:31 AM
Hi. I live in wisconsin, so cheap shipping. Is the card reference or something else? If non-reference, got a brand/model? Also can you describe the fan symptoms? Does the fan scream/squeal, or is it a rattly sound? Does the fan tilt on its axis or can you only (lightly) pull it straight up and down? Just need to know if I can fix this or have to replace it. One of my reference 5870 fans has disintegrated on the inside. It almost feels like the metal axle has separated from the fan itself, but I'll found out soon when my fan from china arrives Wink

The card looks like this 

I think it's a reference card?  I can adjust the voltage and drop the mem to 150...please correct me if I'm mistaken, but isn't that a sign of a reference card?

The fan does not scream or squeal, but it does make the rattly sound as if the fan is nicking the heatsink or something.  When I took the card out and gently spun the fan manually with my finger, I could feel it was very slightly loose.  It seems as if the fan can be pulled straight up and down a very tiny bit, and the fan can be pushed from side to side an even tinier bit.  As soon as I heard the noise, the card was out of my computer within 5 minutes.  When the card runs, it would be quiet for a second, then get loud for a few seconds, then quiet again, then loud, then quiet, etc.  It seems to be shifting in and out of it's central position when it spins.

Hope this helps Smiley

uhm.. where in illinois Wink  I'm there too

498  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: 2 PSU's How to connect? on: November 26, 2012, 04:18:37 PM
Usually switching power supplies don't work or work very bad if you connect their + pin(s) together (if they work, one will win the war, unless you connect their bypass/whatever feedback pins together). You should have only ground (black wires) connected, anything yellow/red/orange should never meet in same board ( you said partly ).

Yes, from the beggining both psu's was connected with + , now when the minuses is connected, everything works fine.

This would have extremely helpful to have known earlier.

Quote from: abracadabra

I'm pretty sure you have connected something incorrectly.

A picture would  be worth 10000000000 words.

Florida, people would probably buy them here. Not much in the way of very old furniture or fixtures down here.

My main buyer for tubs was in Florida. Want to know who? His business has been off though for the past couple years, but still a kickin'.

Hmm.. shipping a claw foot cast iron tub to FL would probably run me more than $100, not sure.  I often have claw foot tubs pulled from bathrooms I do rehabs on.
