Hi everyone. I have perfectly functional Icarus FPGA mining board for sale. As you may or may not know you can trade these in and get $299 credit towards the purchase of the new 'Avalon' ASIC mining systems. So I am selling it for their trade in value. The item will be shipped from within Canada.

Payment will of course be in BTC at whatever the BTC/USD exchange rate is at the time of sale (mtgox price).

PM me if interested.

So far I have one person who bid 12 BTC and another who most likely bid the full $299 price but I am trying to figure out shipping arrangements and he hasn't decided yet to commit to buying it. Thus so far the 12 BTC stands as the highest bid.

Posting this for the public record.

I don't know how but I somehow managed to kill this board as I took it out of the mining cluster. All I did was shut it down, yank the power and usb cables and take it off the "motherboard risers/spacers" and put in an anti-static bag. I assumed that the board was working so I shipped it to PsychoticBoy. Unfortunately I had wasted his time as when it got there it was non functional. I promptly refunded his 12 BTC and he sent the board back. He can confirm that I refunded him.

So now I guess I'm left with a dead board. Or maybe it's fixable? I am not an electrical engineer and I do not have the proper gear to test it out fully so if anyone wants the board let me know.

In light of that has anyone else had one of these Icarus boards fails on them, and if so what was the cause? What is the most common way for these to die? Static? Blown VRMs?
