I am having trouble getting my units to run on cgminer for windows.... no usb device found. Works on bitminter though. Any help would be appreciated!
cgminer doesn't work with standard drivers - if you really want it, you'll need to remove the normal driver and install a non-standard one.
...
WinUSB.sys - a driver written by Microsoft ... Tongue

 Finally had enough of Luke-Jr's hubris to add him to my ignore list.

... and why do I think the most awesome part of that picture is the idea to use USB fans like that? Cheesy
Very 'cool' indeed Smiley

Let's see if we can ID everything else in that photo:

1. eMachines keyboard
2. APC UPS, probably a BR1500 or BR1200 unit
3. D-Link switch in the background
4. can't tell ... Belkin or APC surge suppressor?

But I digress. Excuse me while I "take matters into my own hands" as I look at this hashing pr0n

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

You missed the Apple AirPort Extreme.  Wink

Awesome setup Xian.  I actually think I was looking at those exact USB fans on Amazon the other day.  Is that the "Arctic Breeze" ones?

 Yessir. Very quiet, and blow a surprising amount of air.

It's not a switch, it is a D-Link DIR-300 Wireless Lan Router.

Thanks for the quick reply! One last question: what input voltage does the power adapter take? (please be 110-240V!!)

Are they these ones?

Do you get a lot of H/W errors?  Are they warm or hot to touch?  Just wondering. Awesome setup BTW.

110-240VAC, 50/60Hz, 1.2A

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XN24GY/ -- ARCTIC Breeze Mobile USB-Powered 92mm Portable Fan, Portable Cooling Solution, Quiet Fan - White

... are the fans used in that photo. Not sure how much the fans are making a difference to cool these things down, but I guess it's better than no airflow at all.

Hmmmm... I think bitcointalk should get referral payments from Amazon if we're going to paste links into here from amazon, no?
add a feature forum software to insert a link to an amazon product and the software automatically converts the link so that a referral fee would be credited to bitcointalk.org?

Ah, bugger. Amazon won't ship the Anker USB hubs to Australia. Would someone be willing to act as a go-between for me between USA and Australia?
