I think the 4-chip pod is a more logical target. It should be possible to make a single board which fits both the Gridseed and U3 heatsinks; I'll have to get ahold of an RBox pod to see what it'd require but I know I can hit the other two for sure.

CanaryInTheMines used to sell them on Eligius iirc, maybe they might have one or 2 (dead/alive) to spare?

if not, I will look out for one or 10 for you, if I get my hands on one I'll PM you.

I have to applaud your designs.  If you could make one to fit in greedseed and U3 heatsinks that would be a very very nice product.  The good thing is there are A LOT more gridseed pods then new rboxs.  So much this cheaper price for equipment to put it in.  Although I do see why some want R-box it has merit as the amount of chips.

I personally would enjoy playing with a 4 chip modded gridseed pod.   If you go though with this design I think it's a great idea.   Either way you choose though best of luck.  I have been playing with the 1 chip usb model still and has been fun, and still working good. 

like you I am still working with the 1 chip sticks   they are very nice gear. I get the felling they will run very well for a long time.

There are probably a lot more of the pods around than the GBlades - a board that would fit both would strike me as a very good idea, even though I have no pods.

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!

I know someone selling R-boxes for about 20-25$. I could have one shipped to you as a last resort. I think someone above said they'd send one as a donation though.

I mentioned sending him one. I can send an RBox if you want one sidehack.

I bought 2 R-Boxes from this guy to serve as permanent lottery players.

So, Novak and I did some discussing and it makes more sense to prioritize a pod miner over NRB boards. That said, unless we can get more chips (either in this generation or the next), neither are going to happen. I'm gonna close this thread since it's really no longer relevant.
