Maybe I should by a new miner for myself.

If Bitmain is still selling them they HAVE to be a good buy right? RIGHT?

WTF is wrong with them. From a marketing standpoint. I get economy but what they are doing is blowing my understanding of a functioning market lol

I suspect there is an epidemic of greed in the halls of Bitmain management. Either way, the L3+ is easily one of the most efficient, reliable little workhorses in ASIC history. I'm in.

You only live once....if you do it right, once is enough.

New batch avalaible... bye-bye ROI...

yeah..my plan on mining like hell and hoarding LTC with my ROI'd equip till May 1st...seems like the way to go ...( a dubious plan..but a plan)

they just are not frigging gonna stop.....the toaster train will continue by bitmain

and of course, if LTC price was to jump to $100 bucks ..they would suddenly again, IMHO, have 'firmware issues' mysteriously (like last time may 2017)
when the firmware  fixed supposed machines arrive will show firmware 6 months previous as just dandy (as when fixed showed Jan firmware date on my machines)

I see no prudent angle on getting bitmain equip of any flavor..it has evolved beyond rigged...and hell I can use the equip deductions too boot...still won't float....

If your view is that LTC is gonna pump to $100 bucks...just mine with what you got till the diff kills them  or buy LTC .... why get dubious toaster level dumps of bitmain equip from now

till may 1st say 2018 ..with corresponding dumps in price ...just to wiz in the bathtub and dilute your kool-aid crypto dreams

no competition means no angle I can play, esp with bitmain having 90% of all asic markets now....of any crypto flavor be it sha-256/scrypt-pow/and/or x11..and again....they can only it seems pump out units in mass every 2 weeks

the only way they know how to do this 'toasters'




I turn off my 1000W electric heater for this winter, so it's like free mining (more or less..). I just cross finger for LTC price to $100 bucks...




Ill try and trade my d3 orders for l3 lol doubt if they will go for it but ill open a ticket today


It's Bitmain, not a charitable organization. But I hope for you Smiley

No.

Just buy the APW3s at the same time you order those L3+ s.

Actually, you need to order the PSU's 2-3 weeks before....it has been the case they arrive after your L3+ or D3

I just sent 2 to a buddy who will send me the 2 he eventually will get back to me ..( I finally wised up and now always get spares on any order in case)

Yeah, if you really want to bee like 100% sure you have the psu's ready before the miners arrive, then you can buy them from a different source.

These HP server power supplies are great, for example.

PC power supply is not a good solution. Why? Cause L3+ works continuously. Cause needs 9xPCIE.
Good 850W/230V computer power supply is 87% efficiency (80 plus GOLD), so only with Gold, Platinum Certificate. But power should be greater - do not use 90-100% power supply limit. However, good power supplies can handle it such as the Corsair CS850M, which has a continuous power of 850W for 12V line and peak power of up to 935W. But what if it has only 4 PCIE slots?
Better use power supplies for servers. So APW3++ from Bitmain will be ok.

Bitmain APW3++ power supply or
HP DPS 1200 power supply is the way to go.

Yes, I was planning on taking the gold version. There are 8 PCIe connectors. Another one from the Molex through the adapter.

My advise is, that take the HP 1200W server power supply or supplies (depending how many miners you got, 1 Miner = 1 PSU) and you are good to go.

Yeah, word of caution, I received my L3+ machines two weeks before my APW5 power supplies so it may not be a bad idea to purchase your power supplies elsewhere to be sure you have them ready to go. The ones from Bitmain aren't any more special than similar server power supplies you can buy elsewhere for similar prices.

I forgot to mention that sidehack also makes great kits with this same psu, and the price is even little more cheap.
his thread is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=940317.0
See the DPS-1200 PSU Kit.

This is good especially if you are located in the US. (Gekkoscience is located in Missouri, US)

My electric rates are 0.22 cents in winter and 0.15 cents in summer,  Is it worth getting an antminer L3+ at these electric rates?

In my opinion that electricity price sounds little too expensive in a long run.

But use the calculators available online and you can look at it yourself.   Smiley

You could use it instead of a heater during the winter, it would cover your electricity cost. Now when it's getting colder my 1080ti x 7 GPU rig warms up the living room.

PC power supply is not suitable for continuous operation generally and even if you have a strong 12V line you will probably need to restart it at some time. So be careful with that choice.
