Lol I meant to say PSU cost is off-putting (not outputting) compared to a normal plug.

Sure you can get cheap PSU's, but I always hear nightmare stories.

If you're not pulling too much wattage from them they'll last. I have a couple machines with cheap PSUs and they run fine 24/7. If you're too concerned you can go for a used 80+ PSU or an EVGA (20 bucks refurbished on Newegg, pretty sure it's less) and they work fine and won't be too expensive.

Yes, you hear nightmare stories about people trying to put 100% load 24/7 on a POS PSU. That is not the usage case being talked talked about.

Yeah, we get PSUs much cheaper here in the US and they're often on nice discounts (got a 500w 80+ new for 20 once). I get a few every now and then, UK always seems to have higher pc part costs.

Pretty decent I reckon. Had a few days last week to just almost finish up the BM1384 Terminus redesign. I need to give it a once-over, double-check the layout before sending off for boards but I'm hoping to do that this week.

Problem is, Saturday night I got a huge ASAP cable order that's eating all the time I had padded into this week for doing that and a few prep projects I wanted to get done to speed up 2Pac manufacture now that my helper left. MacEntyre doubled his order, and Batch 3 PCBs arrive next week, so even without Terminus stuff or cables or any other projects, I have work lined up until about August.

Check back soon though. I've got four Terminus pod PCBs I'm going to try and retrofit with the new buck module I've got working. Once they're functional I'm planning to auction them off here to help raise money for a friend's medical bills.

Cool, quiet and up to 1TH pod miner, on sale now!

Sounds good! Better response than some other bigger miner manufacturing ompanies, I will definitely check in on the auction. Sounds like you're plenty busy right now, keep us updated with any important information!

Glad you are busy sidehack...I cant wait for the pod testing to start.  On a side note I have an idea about a miner retrofit, but not hardware...building a driver or whatever to run an existing design in a different way to utilize the ability of an older platform.

I am in way over my head...lol.  I will send you a PM with more details but its not something I want you to address right now. Just keep it in the back stack of you minds eye and we will maybe talk in a few months. Smiley

What's happening with the BF16 pods?  The BF16 stuff is the only thing I'm interested in because it'll be obsolete fast enough.  I can't see sinking money into more BM1384 stuff.  I've got a 2Pac, it works, but it doesn't break even.  Turning the speed up or buying more isn't going to make it more profitable because the power consumption will just rise too.

ima quote sidehack here..
I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume nothing's changed in the last four days.

Or, to quote myself,

No marked progress since the last update, hence no update.

Because:

Yeah, I've been eyeballs-deep in manufacturing since around February and haven't really had much time to put into new designs. Especially since the BM1384 pod took more iterations than intended to be fully functional.

OK, I saw that, I thought maybe it moved to a different thread and I missed it or something.  Very frustrating to see time going into old technology that mostly can't break even while the 16 nm stuff that might is on a back burner.

You're frustrated? Try being the guy that works 70-hour weeks in a 95-degree shop (for what amounts to well under minimum wage) designing and building stuff for people who whine on the internet. Last week I got a full-time helper for manufacturing for the first time ever and I've been building miners for two years now. Only got a helper because my mom lost her job so we're helping each other out.

You want something, go make it. Can't make it? Don't complain. I got more skin in the small-miners game than anyone else in the world has had since 2014 and I'm working as hard as I can to fill that gap. I'll get it when I get it.

Cool, quiet and up to 1TH pod miner, on sale now!

The new revision Terminus pod PCBs arrived yesterday. Hopefully I have some time soon to get one built, but I'll have to take a day or two to write some micro firmware before it's really workable. Once that's golden I'll be able to make and sell them as well.

I contracted out the main regulator for BF16 pods since that's the part of the Terminus that gave me the most trouble. So at least that won't cause delays.
