How to pack R4 Hash Board - from Bitmain. kun.yu

1.     Prepare a carton. Specifications: Length 556mm * Width 126mm * Height 126mm

If there are more than two hash boards, please prepare a wider carton accordingly. There should be no more than four hash boards in one carton.

2.     Put the foam cotton inside the carton, and then put hash board inside the foam cotton. Make sure each hash board is wrapped around by the foam cotton as below.



3.     And then, fill the carton with more foam cotton until hash board cannot be shaken.



4.     Sealing and shipping.

can build all the miners who want to, if not change the material, and give at least 1 year of garanziasui products, it remains a product that shit in 3 months burns or card, or controller, or any miner, I stopped to buy these machines, too expensive, roi impossible, bad material, little collateral,
when bitmain then policy changes (perhaps come back to buy) but until you sell shoddy products if they can hold in china for me, I feel sorry for you who still buy this shit, but the thing I most regret, and that there are people they defend the bitmain policy, and is good that the card is burned immediately, the hard guarantee 90 days, out of fear that bitmain close the sale to the domestic audience. bhèè do steal the money instead to rebel, but then do not cry if the world goes to hell for our fault.

Yeah  I know what you mean.  I am still waiting for a repair and an rma.

Of six units.  I had 3 blades die and 1 controller die.

They have one blade and one controller in Colorado since Oct 6th  and I don't have  a bill or any info or date when I will get these parts.

I have spent more then 40,000 usd with this company since Dec 2013.

I have a 240 volt solar array at 19 amps used 38 amps idle.    thats enough idle power for 7 or 8 s9's

I just don't want the repair headaches.

I was in talks with a solar installer buysolar is his name here.
A banker.
and a guy with 40 acres.

The small solar array that buysolar and I have  (2 acres) was to be a test setup.
But the lack of reliability of the s9  has stopped all plans to expand.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I don't see how the R4 is at all profitable; I've done the math and at 10 cents a kilowatt this thing is really not profitable at all maybe just maybe a few bucks profit after over year of running 24 hours a day if prices stay where they are now.

That's the thing is priced too high. It was almost the same as a 12Th S9 when it was on sale.

Unfortunately, almost nothing is profitable at 10 cents a kW these days. Now if you do not pay for electricity, that is a different story, but those cases are rare.

Anyone know when the R4 will be back for sale?

Since its getting colder, I really would like to spend the $150/month on power the next few months as electrical heating in the house instead of my garage!

I emailed bitmain directly and was just told they had sold out due to high demand (duh  Roll Eyes ). No actual dates or even mention a ballpark of when/if they will be available again. I assume they are doing the same sort of thing to the R4 as they did with the S9....fucking up the firmware with auto-tune crap that doesn't work properly and takes 20-30mins to boot up and start hashing.

You'll be disappointed if you're hoping to get significant heat out of the device. I have it in my office with me and my office is only maybe 2 degrees warmer than the rest of the house because of the miner.

With today's difficuly and hardwares, it's hard to get profit from miners and especially from this antminer R4. It's only plus is that it's not as noisy as antminer S series but now who cares about that, many people prefer more profit with noisy antminer s9 than antminer R4. With free electricity profit is 140% in year and with 10 cents, it doesn't worth if you buy only one or two.

I think these are done for. They need a lot of chips to keep cool without having large fans, so they cost a lot more to make than a S9 does. At the previous price they were offering these for the ROI was terrible already and if they want to lower the price to stay competitive they won't make any money. I'd never expect to see another new R4 for sale.

For sure profits would be difficult on these R4 Miners because of the difficulty on bitcoin mining and its not really ideal to purchase one of these and you are right people would really tend to buy S series compared to this . Mining with only 1 mining rig  is worthless make it  5-7 miners it would be profitable for sure especially when you do have free electricity on your place just like mine Smiley

The issue of profitability is probably why there is a relatively low demand on R4 compared with S9.

I believe bitmain will address this issue in its next release.
