62  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How hot are your Erupter Blade running? [temperature!] on: June 01, 2013, 05:16:00 PM
Just dropping a fan on the heatsink isn't optimal. I haven't monitored the temperature yet, but in my experience you should create a push and pull effect for the airflow (also got some good feedback from members here telling me to do the same). My blades are pretty cold at the touch, so I'm confident.

I could take a picture, but I think the following illustration will help you more.



This is a top down view of a standard rack case in which the blades can fit. The airflow shield is pretty simple, I reused the foam, but it could be some plastic as well.
I used two big fans that normally operate under 12V, but they do the job just as well under 5V with a bearable noise level.

I don't know whether I got my Push and Pull terminology right, but the arrows should make it clear. Correct me if I am wrong. And I am by all no means an expert, other people could have better solutions.

Am I too optmistic too think that difficulty will not rise as dramatically as in the past? Sure it spikes in the beginning, but it will be a long time until they can ramp up to production at the same pace as GPUs or CPUs. I don't really think it is comparable to the boost it got when switching to GPUs, since those were already established technologies used for a much broader market.

One can onky hope, I suppose.

Added some ASIC hashing power to this pool. Seems like a pretty good deal. Currently nr 2 and planning on dethroning nr 1 in due time Smiley

What about tolls and VAT when receiving a product in EU? Any experience?

Last time I payed something less than 50 EURs tax for one. But it varies a lot, don't think I've seen anyone pay more than 50 EUR though.

2, if still relevant to bid anymore

I have migrated my asic miner from its wine box into an old G5 case taking the airflow notes into account. It remains pretty cool and has 99.38% efficiency (13GH) at slush's pool using stratum proxy. Still using the original foam as surface materials. Not gonna touch it any more yet so far. This time I did succeed in reducing electrocution and fire risk.

Great work form the Asicminer team. I hope everybody got theirs up and running.

Did anyone start plotting the regions yet in which Asic Miners are running? Would be nice to see where all this hashing power is travelling to.
70  Economy / Auctions / Re: ASICMINER Auction: 50 Block Erupter Blades CHECK OP FOR PAYMENT on: May 07, 2013, 06:53:02 PM
Mine seem to max out around 11.5GH each.. i checked the voltage and they're all at ~1.20-1.23V, clock setting: High

For the people that are seeing 13GH, have you done anything different or tweaked anything in your setup?

is that 13GH on the web blade web interface? or as reported by your pool?



I also noticed a serious difference between slush pool results and bitminter with getwork. Former goes up to 13 GH/s the latter 3 GH/s, while bitminter does report 10 GH/s. So try with a stratum proxy and different pools.

I don't want to fiddle with the overclocking just yet, I'll let a braver man lead the way there.

I put mine into a salvaged mac pro cage. It still needs some work, I would'nt trust that running 24/7 either Smiley

omen, for the love of bitcoin, PLEASE pop off a side of that box and move the fans. the way it is now is horrendous airflow. it hurts to look at.  Cry

Yes, sir. Still a work in progress Smiley

Crappiest asic miner wine box ++


I should move the unit to the front as well, but that's a bit too risky with this joke. Gonna get something decent soon enough.

For fellow alcoholics that bought this to support their habit. In a half-drunk moment of clarity I rethought my design, under pressure from wife due to concerns for fire and electrocution. I didn't really do anything about those problems, but this works great! And it fits perfectly. Now this has perfect reason to pay for a new box of wine every now and then.


75  Economy / Auctions / Re: ASICMINER Auction: 50 Block Erupter Blades CHECK OP FOR PAYMENT on: May 07, 2013, 04:28:16 AM
Man, you're like MacGyver. Clever setup!
76  Economy / Auctions / Re: ASICMINER Auction: 50 Block Erupter Blades CHECK OP FOR PAYMENT on: May 06, 2013, 05:39:17 PM
I don't even dare to show my current setup Smiley
Congrats!

It was pure hell today, had to pick up from DHL myself. Total traffic disaster. 2 ATX PSUs I assumed to work were dead (thankfully I could sacrifice a third). Total heart-attack after boot failure (fans went on for one sec and then system shut down again). Tried again and now it's running at slightly less than 13 GH/s without overclocking.

It's pretty easy to assemble and easy enough to configure. Using a custom PSU is quite stressful, even though it works like a charm.
78  Economy / Auctions / Re: ASICMINER Auction: 50 Block Erupter Blades CHECK OP FOR PAYMENT on: May 06, 2013, 10:22:47 AM
They finally called back. I need to pay around 55 EUR if I recall correctly. Now I must speed towards DHL like a maniac and get this baby up and running to at least make back the taxes! Smiley

It could be a lot worse... just a pain that I need to go and get it myself.
79  Economy / Auctions / Re: ASICMINER Auction: 50 Block Erupter Blades CHECK OP FOR PAYMENT on: May 06, 2013, 06:41:35 AM
Bastards. Shipment on hold and waiting for payment. I called and need to wait for the accounting department to wake up and tell me how much import tax I will need to pay. I need to go pay in person and get the parcel myself if I still would like it today. Credit card could take at least another day.

So if you see that status better call them up. Could be different in your country.

So, a hardcoded magic number has been made configurable. Except most do not like the new default magic number. Technically I see that as an improvement. Developers are giving you more control. If it is such a big issue, won't the market decide what the best configuration is?
