2 gridseeds gathering dust
1 antminer s5's (was going to buy another but the price jumped up)
2 antminer s3's (i want a few more, pm me if you have some cheap)
3 Zeusminer Thunder x3 (these drink power like crazy)
2 Zeusminer Blizzards (these are what got me interested in mining)
5 loose hashingboards+ heat-sinks and fans ziptied over them from a damaged GAW war machine i think

i pay around 0.04 cents kwh on average for commercial power on off peak hours
I turn everything off during peak hours except today with my scrypt miners because whoa! Shocked

Mine at Jonny's Pool

Correct me if I'm wrong but if 5 usb miners find a block on CKpool don't you have to mine the block first. Wouldn't that take another longtime do solve it.
If you've found the block, you've already mined the correct hash to add it to the blockchain.  There is no more mining that needs to take place on that block.  Of course, finding a solo block with 10GH/s... well, at the current difficulty, you would expect it to take nearly 673 years.  That hasn't stopped me from pointing my 5 U2s at ck.'s pool, though.  I've got a 1 in 245579 chance of finding a block today Smiley.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.
