Patience is the name of the game.  Cex hasn't been doing that great this week either. They have hit a few hour long orphans.
It will come back around and I predict a VERY good Labor day weekend.

Well the dust on the heatsinks is probably just left over from manufacturing.  Bitmain had to have the sinks made someplace then shipped to them to assemble.
I'm sure each heatsink wasnt cleaned prior to assy.
As for the design, maybe they had different batches made by different suppliers.
As long as the circuit boards are the same and say S3  on them then they are legit.
The heatsinks are not causing your problems.
You said you were going to let them run un-molested for a while.
Hows that going ?

This is my last offtopic post about this here, if anyone is interested in finding out more, lets take it to PMs.

My bad unit looked almost like this when I first opened it, I had less dust on it (like 70% of what you can see on following pic):
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=330665.2280
The dust only was on air intake side of the unit, the other side was fresh clean. Moreover the intake fan wings were also covered in thick layer of dust, I hope I do not need to go further proving that unit was running for a very long time before I got it.

I asked bitmain about different heatsinks on same batch and dirty heatsinks - they asked me the order number and then held back to answer, but answered that there is nothing they can do unless the unit is faulty.

The lastest update from me is - good news:
1) on the pool I am on now - they do not penalize hoppers so I can restart the unit whenever I feel it starts to underperform
2) I ran the units without restart for 24 hours hoping to run them until end of the week, performance wise they ran as expected for 4-5 hours, then the bad unit took a plunge for 20 hours non stop underperforming and no sign of recovering (400 GH/s)
3) seeing that last night I decided not to wait until end of the week as I promised and took the good unit apart and by popular demand took pics to show different heatsink design on same batch units and to find that it is almost perfectly clean inside the good unit, just a little dust on it which most probably collected while running at my place, I cleaned that off, tightened heatsink screws, reversed both fans which caused the good unit run a lot cooler, too - fans ran 1900-2100 RPM before the procedure, now they run 1600-1700 RPMs, combined with the bad unit already cleaned and reversed fans now the units run at pleasant noise level compared to what they were running at upon receiving them. as the units generate less heat now, the room they are in is little cooler than it was. After procedure I started both units to find them running 880 AVG for 12 hours, then there was an internet connection problem for 1 minute at my place after which the bad unit started underperforming again, after restart the units now run good for 8 hours.

to conclude - the problem is still there, keeping room temperature low seems to fix it.

Woohoo.  

Got 2 Antminer S1s online now both clocked and a stable 200GH/s each also got my Antminer U2 USB clocked in at 2.1Gh/s stable.

Bringing in some nice profit.     I've always loved slushs pool.  Fee thing sucks but hey,  you gotta spend money to make money.




One thing with slushs pool that I dont feel I get anywhere else is the fact that, with slushs pool, I've never once felt let down with my rewards.
Because you make up for it in the end.

We have had some slow days, some fast days, some bad days.   But when the time comes around.   You WILL make your money back, no matter what.   Patience my young padawans.    Patience is key.

Nice mining with you all Cheesy

I agree it really does average out and often on the higher side. I might have strayed a few times to compare against new pools offering glitz, glamor, and the promise of high rewards but after a few days I would always end up back here. With that said Slush is one of the most stable and trustworthy pools around and I call this pool my mining home.

After experimenting I agree Slush is definitely the best place to be for me.  I have got my miners set up as rentals as a back up plan.  The rate is set quite high so of they are rented I'm not losing out as it's a steady daily rate.  They're currently being rented for 1 week.

I do agree on that  I to have gone to many other pools comparing and trying out other things,   no matter what there pool was,  there was always something about Slush's that made me always want to come back.   Great place to be.


For anyone wanting to 2 Antminer s1 clocked @ 200Gh/s to Slush's pool.   Let me know and we will work out an awesome contract for you.


I buy contracts some times,   helps with the cash flow a bit.... in the end.    

I also do contracts to(I got 2 Antminer s1s clocked at 200GH/s stable)
Just going to help Slushs community.

I will rent out contracts for my miners for a cheap cost(cheaper if you buy more of course)

(If you would like to rent a contract from me inbox me and we will talk about it)


PS. I will give extra credit to ones who use my contracts for Slush's pool instead of other pools.
Thanks

I would do $1.00 for every 4 hrs at 400GH/S

I can do a week for $19.50@ 400
Or
2 weeks for 26.99

PS. These are based off my own calculations and are subject to change.

(We can work out better deals for you aswell.)


I will accept Bitcoins as a payment as well as PayPal.

Or
2 weeks for 26.99

Now why would you do that if the theoretical revenue with 400 GHs and 15C / kWh at current diff is....

Power cost per 24h   2.88 USD
Revenue per day   5.25 USD
Less power costs   2.37 USD x 14 days = $33.17.

Makes no sense at all. You could make a couple bux more yourself at current difficulty rate.

After next diff increase (assuming 23) if you mined yourself

Power cost per 24h   2.88 USD x 14 days = 40.32
Revenue per day   4.36 USD
Less power costs   1.48 USD x 14 days = 20.72

However, your customer would make 4.36 x 14 = 61.04 - 26.99 = 34.05

So you would pay 20.72 for electricity and get 26.99 which makes about $6 profit.
Makes no sense again. Because if you have free power any smart person would mine for himself.

If for some reason you do not pay for electricity then mining yourself makes MUCH more sense than offering contracts.

You are preaching to the choir here, nobody in this forum is interested in cloud mining....just though I would show you what everybody here is thinking...

Its all cool.  And thought I'd help.   That's all.   

Guess ill just continue using then for myself.

Probably buy a few more s1s down the road or an s3
But I thin down the road...maybe.  I may update my PSU to 2 850w and have 4 s1s 2 miners on each PSU

Maybe throw in a few USB miners.


But for now I'm completly content with 400GH/S




Thanks for the assistance.

It's been fun but I'm not going to ride this mining vs. btc price to the end. I pulled out most of my btc in the 600's when I noticed the trend was solid. I just sold my equipment because difficulty is going up to fast to maintain profit for long. Resale value exceeded the mining potential of my S2's (even with a 15kw solar sys). Maybe I'll be back come winter when I need the heat and the hash is cheaper per watt.  cya  Wink

Just remember, only 21 million bitcoins will ever be made, bitcoin will dramatically go up in value in the near future. A lot of people missed out and did the same last year when it dropped from $145 to $45 and then hit $1300 at Christmas. Mining is a long run process that will pay off good in the furure. If for some reason your operation isn't totally covering costs, at least you have a hobby that helps pay for itself when prices are low and can make you wealthy when prices go high, as long as you have some BTC saved. Try not to buy stuff, like a pizza for 10,000 BTC like some people did because they thought the price wouldn't go up as it keeps doing over time.

I know a lot of the new members thought they would get a miner and it would hit some kind of bitcoin lotto, or make them $500 a day starting the day you plugged in your miner. Understand making a profit is possible right now, but if you are not totally driven to get it, you problably won't with this month's prices. Mining is not for everyone. It's a good time to buy coin right now, mining or not, so there are other angles. But to me, it's always a good time to mine because I will be ready with BTC in hand when it jumps again and again.

Anyway, I do thank you for helping in the community and mining while you did. It seems a lot of people comming around here now are scammers who don't care what we are accomplishing here.
