Nice case and fans. BFL was at this stage almost one year ago.

BFL redesigned their cases in April when the chips actually arrived, after blowing money on stocking cases that didn't work.



Yup, KNC is not at this stage yet.

BS, the one I use will. Stop trying to spread FUD, an ATX supply is just a power brick with a fan, you are just use to people putting them inside the case for neatness.

KNC offer professional hosting of their miners at a local data center as a payable service.

Sam's been arranging datacentres and has a total understanding of their requirements, hence no liquid cooling, as liquid cooled miners are not welcome in datacentres.

Dear KNC,

Sorry that lots of people in this thread are giving you grief because BFL and Avalon have fallen short of expectations.

Thanks for your work, looking forward to delivery.

     Sincerely,

     ~The people here who realize that one company's failings do not automatically mean others will disappoint

P.S. Keep up the hard work, and thanks for the update.

BS indeed. In addition to KNC there is another option for hosting the units in Stockholm, so that makes at least 3 data centers that will host these units.

#1 - External power supply is completely stupid.
#2 - Data centers allow water cooling.  Less than 10 years ago I had to deal with decommissioning a water cooled mainframe from a data center.

Apparently the ones in Sweden won't, they tried. They don't want to deal with it. Ask them.

Also ask whether the psu's are external. There's been no confirmation, only assumption.

The largest data center in Los Angeles... wait for it... does not allow water cooling in their facilities. Huge risk. Maybe you can find some that will allow it for who knows what reason but I doubt the main-stays will.

The small slot at the front is to accommodate one 5V and multiple 12V power connections from the external PSU as well as the RJ45 for Ethernet and a USB.

Seems pretty clear to me.

I'm sure they do allow it, just not cobbled PC water cooling.  Level 3 in SF had a 2 rack Cray T3e running in a cage until 2006.  Not two f**ks were given.

It looks to me like those cases may not be aluminum. Possibly they misspoke, they seem to be thin-steel, possibly 22 gauge steel or thereabouts? Most aluminum is rather soft for this application. Something about the color--I'm usually pretty good at calling metal content by physical appearance and color, though obviously it's difficult to say for sure from a mere photograph.

I'm sure they do allow it, just not cobbled PC water cooling.  Level 3 in SF had a 2 rack Cray T3e running in a cage until 2006.  Not two f**ks were given.
I'm sure they'd make an exception for a goddamn Cray too.

external PSU is such a non-issue, I removed the PSU from my avalon after three days to place it outside the case (and got a couple degrees cooler performance by doing so)

I just hope those edges are very well rounded or they include some kind of rubber grommet for that access slot. I have visions of shorted wires when I look at that thing.

The metal for the case is platinum.. That is where all the pre-order money went

Cooling case material and appearance aside.  Here is the real issue.  These were supposed to be professional mining machines.  I have yet to see a 4U machine with an external power supply.  Further, in an average cabinet, where would you put said external power supply and be able to close the door?  Do we just have to eat rackspace and deal with cable management for 3cm bundles per machine?   Seems like a nightmare.  I have to be honest, I've got a fairly sizable order with them and at this point I'm debating asking for a refund and/or selling them.  Their product is starting to look more and more like the cobbled stacks of FPGA boards on stand-offs with fans zip tied to them and USB hubs taped everywhere, not that they're doing this, but it has the design and foresight of.
