delivery date. Grin

I was given quite a specific estimated delivery date for the 1st shipment, so maybe he got it too Tongue

1st or 2nd half of month/s? That would be nice to know. Smiley

Yep still heard nothing from them.
So I guess main line cgminer support wont be happening ...

It would have been if at least they would have contacted you.
Pardon my ignorance and laziness to search but are kano and the other guy the only option for developing cgminer drivers? What about bfminer (if I recall the spelling correct)? Can't it be used instead? Not so efficient?

Well, if they took a commitment with Kano it would have been correct to tell him what they plans are in respect of HIS work.

Secondly, I do not think Luke-Jr has been contacted neither.
They contacted us to start with, as I said before, with plans and time lines.
None of their plans and time lines supplied to us have eventuated ... so far ...

Since they have the PCB's, now it is a matter of them slapping an FPGA on one of the boards and sending it over your way. Hope that happens very soon.

Considering October delivery, is it still worth it for me to place an order today for a Jupiter or Saturn? Will I at the very least see ROI?


Well if you got a Jupiter Oct 1 and you started mining right away ..(Roi 57 days)

http://mining.thegenesisblock.com/a/b90f2d07ff




If you got it NOV 1 then you wont see ROI

http://mining.thegenesisblock.com/a/8ab0181416


That's at the current bitstamp btc price approximately $112 not the goxed btc price. Of course its also guesstimating the difficulty climb.

Maybe someone else can chime in .. im a bit biased as i dont think its a good time to by a miner. I was once critical of KNC but not so much now.

They actually look good and as long as they can stick to the deadlines without hiccups they will have a good run at the asic space.



You are mistaking ROI and break-even (like most do in here).

ROI is the profit ("return") you get from an investment. You can have a low or a high ROI, but if you have a ROI you have reached break-even for sure.

Break-even means you recoup all your investment

Most of people in here uses ROI as a synonym for break even, which is nonsense.

I prefer using ROI over break even because it's easier to type and many people use it this way. I think the usage is also perfecty acceptable, because once you reach ROI it means you're making a profit. If there's no ROI, you are not making a profit on your investment and have not broken even. So although they're not synonymous, they can be used in a similar way to refer to the point at which you get your investment back.

To be honest, them not contacting you is my biggest concern at this point about the company as a whole. I have a day 2 Jupiter and while they could have other means of mining in place, I am worried if they committed to you and have not done any follow up. Since they're responsive via phone, I'm going to call them and ask about this--but before I do, has anyone else?

Hello Robert,
 
Yes, everything is on schedule, we are still on target to meet our expected delivery dates.
We already have CGMiner working and we will be contacting Kano shortly in regards to a development device.

BUT on the other hand, they didn't try to get at my money like a potential scam most likely would have....so all in all postive.

Answers? Only 15 bucks upfront!

Can't really fault him for that - it's nearly impossible to support hardware without having it physically, unless there is extremely detailed documentation available, then it become just "very difficult."

This is needed  Wink



Not for most PSU.  The quick and easy check is to look at the PCIe power cable.  Does it have two connectors one one "string"?  If so then using a splitter doesn't really do anything

Code:
           *
PSU ------------------- PCIE connector 1     <----- use only this connector
                     |
                     ---- PCIE connector 2            <----- don't use this connector, use another wire for a 2nd connection (wrap me with electrical tape)

The connector can handle more current than is needed so it is just a question of "can the PSU push enough current to the connector".

You could use a splitter to connect the connector 1 & 2 in diagram above but the same amount of current is flowing through the cable regardless.  If a board pulls 20A then at the point marked * it will have 20A of current regardless of if you are using a splitter or not.

So for four connections it would be something like this

Code:
|---|
|   |------------------- PCIE connector 1a     <----- Connection #1
|   |               |
|   |               ---- PCIE connector 1b     <----- Don't use me
|   |
|   |------------------- PCIE connector 2a     <----- Connection #2
|   |               |
|   |               ---- PCIE connector 2b     <----- Don't use me
| P |
| S |------------------- PCIE connector 3a     <----- Connection #3
| U |               |
|   |               ---- PCIE connector 3b     <----- Don't use me
|   |
|   |------------------- PCIE connector 4a     <----- Connection #4
|   |               |
|   |               ---- PCIE connector 4b     <----- Don't use me
|---|

Each set of wires is carrying no more than 1/4th of the total load. So 1000W / 4 =  250W / 12V = 20.83A / 3 conductors = 6.94A per conductor which is below the limit for both the wire and the connector.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This, this and more this!!!  Please be aware of which connectors you are using and use only separate 'lines'.

Too much current through those paltry 18AWG wires will burn them out!!!

Tired of substandard power distribution in your ASIC setup???   Chris' Custom Cablez will get you sorted out right!  No job too hard so PM me for a quote
