Just got my Terminus, works just fine so far. Just wanted to say thanks for an excellent product and a great collectible, sidehack! Can't wait for your Bitfury developments.

I got mine as well. I was impressed with the build quality, the massive heatsink, and included fan. I like how the Mhz slowly clocks up from 50,75,100,125,150,175,200.

Currently running them at 200Mhz.

Not sure if this is normal, but they eventually go OFF on cgminer. They were powered, but maybe getting too hot? I'm not monitoring them all the time. Does Terminus start up again after a cooling off period?

After searching around I found GekkoScience Terminus R808 Miner Official Support Thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3009183.120
I see no posts there about OFF condition. Try posting there for a response. Good Luck

Guys, found an interesting mining project-***** coin.
I hope to be useful Wink

It's some kind of scam alt coin, and not relevant to this thread, Mr. Bounty collector. If it isn't Bitcoin it doesn't belong here.

Got mine!  Have them up and running on the same Pi 3B board as 5 2Pacs.  I backed everything down to stock for now to see if the USB bus gets congested, but so far so good.  The 2pacs are all humming along at ~11Gh/s (plugged into a 7-Port Superpbag USB hub), and the pair of pods I got are churning out their ~66Gh/s (plugged directly into the Pi 3B).  One of them is churning out more HW errors than all the others.  Up to 8 of them in about an hour or so, which isn't outrageous.  That aside, so far so good!

Any news from Niko Punin from Bitfury if they are still able to sell some BF16BTC8162 chips for your project?
I've heard that their sales are pretty much full booked at the moment.

@sidehack... I get the impression that your new boards are using a chip other than Bitfury. Can you share what chip you are using?

Can you explain Bitfury chip vs Bitmain BM1384 chip? I don't know about the chips... Is Bitfury chips more energy efficient, so higher hashrates for less watts? Does the thinner chips help with this?

BM1384 is the chip Bitmain used in the S5 - 2 generations old now and VERY low efficiency compared to current chips/miners (though tuneable for better than the S5 itself managed).

Cool! I'd love a 1 TH/s pod miner. I'm getting around 280 GH/s with my set up now.

So, announcement.

Terminus pods are still available and in stock. 2Pacs and power supply boards (both DPS800/Common-Slot and Dell 750W) are also in stock.

However, starting here directly, Laura will no longer be acting as a sales rep.

That job, though mutually beneficial, was created for her in order to help meet her needs. She's recently found a great job doing what she loves so the necessity is no longer present, and that job is taking up a fair amount of time and energy so she's no longer able to keep up with the flood of emails.

If you started an order with Laura, she'll see it through to the end. But any new orders need to go through sales@gekkoscience.com instead.

Laura gladly took on and handled well what I consider to be the worst part of business, so if you get the chance to drop her a line, make sure you say thanks for all her work and wish her good luck in the future.

I received my two Terminus 808 miners yesterday. One is hooked to a computer PSU and the other connected to a 12v brick I had laying around.

They ran happily overnight with default settings. Yay! Today I'm experimenting with settings. I also expect to ditch the brick and run both off the PSU once I get another PCIe cable.

Thanks, sidehack, for your innovation and perseverance in getting these to market at a reasonable price. Your support is also appreciated and curmudgeonly responses are entertaining.
