Auction time left (informative: THE FORUM TIME is binding!): Check summaries by John K.
Ends at April 29, 06:25:32 PM forum time (roughly UTC).

Freebie for bidding 10 or more boards: This neat rack! (http://imgur.com/a/PkOcu#4)Shipping is FREE!

This is the second round of our auction series. The organizer is also John. K.

To the future winners: please let John K. collect your postal address and telephone number for us. We will ship them via DHL like we did in the last auction.

The first round can be found here (with FAQ, photos and etc):

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=178275.0

The (extending) user tips can be found here:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VMO3VfIBy3KIwUaaQ8XhKrSVEbXeeMEqsVhhk6Bz9io/edit?usp=sharing

The album of our blades' pictures are here:

http://imgur.com/a/PkOcu#0

Differences to the First Round
This round also have a 96h period in total. But it's divided to 48h (auction) and 48h (payment and info collection), instead of last time's 72h (auction) and 24h (payment and info collection).

The postal address and the telephone number of winners will be collected by the organizer (hopefully John. K.) this time.

While the first round's customers will have a free upgrade to newer blades, this round's customers will have the free upgrade of the newer power modules and ethernet controllers only.

Improvements
The package of the devices will be better placed to prevent potential shipment damages.

The voltage output is pre-tuned to 1.2V for directly available overclocking. But if you don't want to overclock because of cooling issues, you may like to adjust the voltage output down below 1.1V to save power and reduce heat.

Again, happy bidding!

FAQ 2:

1. How much is shipping to Australia (or x country)?
Shipping is FREE!

2. Is these boards the newer revision used by the farm now, or older versions?
They are newer revision, including the firmware.

3.

While the first round's customers will have a free upgrade to newer blades, this round's customers will have the free upgrade of the newer power modules and ethernet controllers only.

What does this mean exactly? What upgrade are the first round's customers getting that the second round customers aren't getting? What does that entail for hash rates?

At the bottom of the post it says these blades are the newer version, are they not the same version as the previous auction's blades?
Questions above.
1. The second round's customers get upgrade of the power module and controller module. It will allow more stable overclocking and better firmware. The first round's customers gets upgrade of the hashing board as well as the power module and controller module. This might entail hash rates and might not, but the newer hashing board will definitely not be slower.

2. The first and the second blades are the same version (v2), but newer than what we used for deploying for the first batch (v1) in case of firmware. And what the free upgrade will involve is (v3).

4.
IIRC, when driven at the 'overclocked' voltage setting, which this batch is as shipped, these boards must have active cooling.

What does it take to keep these boards as shipped sufficiently cooled for 24x7 operation, please?

From our testing, keeping your ambient temperature below 30C, then one 12V/0.3A fan will be enough for keeping two boards run 25x7. You could use 70C on the heatsink as a safe upper line to determine the smallest airflow the blade needs. If the small fan along with our boards is not powerful enough, you could use a bigger DC fan, and power it with the two unused poles of the terminal block.

5. For x reason, I can't pay in time. Can I still bid?

Sorry, but the rule is here. If you could not pay in time please don't bid to avoid being blacklisted.

6.
Also John did you find out about what I need to buy to get this working? (Power adaptor wise)

Sorry if this has been asked before, so if I have a standard PC PSU (for example from a GPU mining rig). I would be able to power these BE blades, without buying anything extra? is the "adapter" in the videos included in the package?

No problem

This has been asked a few times, so ill clear it up

standard ATX PSU is fine, get something over 400 watts to be safe - youll need to supply 80watts down to the blade (to be safe) - so make sure the PSU can provide 7amps on 12v rails (to be safe) - the 4 pin CPU plug should do the trick (yellow wires) - or preferably the PCI express.

Also, bond the neutrals together and wire into one port on the green adapter, otherwise, in my experience you'll over heat.
 

I would recommend buying about 4-5 8cm fans to keep this bitch cool, at 1.2volts per lane, she gets hot and needs 2 x on the heatsink, 1 x on the chips, and 1x on the power module to make me feel "ok" about it.


7. Is the blades compatible with P2Pool?

Our blades implements only the diff 1 getwork protocol. So p2pool is possible, but should be with proxies.

8. Can I submerge the pcb in oil without losing the warranty?

You can submerge it in (non corrosive) oil to cool it. If you handle this correctly its lifespan might be even longer than with fan cooling.

9. Let's say I purchase a Blade, and it mines for a week and then breaks (for whatever reason). Do I then send the unit back to Hong Kong, and wait for you to repair it and ship it back to me? And - if so - will there be any compensation for this, in case it happens? We all know that a month can literally make or break the profitability of a miner like this, so I would like to know how this will be handled.

No, the warranty means we send you a new one immediately when we confirm that we could get the old one (in case of anti-abusing the warranty).

I'd be happily surprised if 4@20 makes it to the end of the auction... It will avoid lots of back-and-forth bids too which will make it easier to follow for John K.
