Slush is on fire lately
Bitcoin may be down - But slush is on the up - Not even done my daily rain dance yet, could be even more after that
I agree .. the luck during the last 7 days has been very good
I just started mining this time last night for the first time. I decided to join Slush's Pool. Boy am I glad I did. We have 13 total blocks my first time at this! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 0.22812078 BTC in a 24 hour period from my 10 miners. WOW!!!!
It took a little while to figure out how to get my miners going. I ended up setting up DHCP; using each MAC address of each miner to put into the router. It works great.
Like I said, this is my first time out. I bought 10 Bitmain Antminer S3+ (450 G/H each; 4.5 T/H total). I have them clocked out to a combined total of 4.668 TH's according to my statistics on Slush's Pool. They are powered by 5 Corsair AX850's (UPS). I'm using 1 Corsair AX850 for every 2 Antminer S3+.
They are all hooked up via ethernet to a TP-Link TL-SG1048 Switch, which has 48 Gigabit Ethernet ports. It is plug and play! NON MANAGEABLE! JUST PLUG AND PLAY! I wanted it to be easy!
I have everything downstairs where it is cooler. I also have a box fan blowing on them constantly to keep the heat away from them. I will be adding an exhaust fan to one of the windows downstairs to funnel the heat outside. I will add another exhaust fan in reverse at the other window to suck cold air in during the winter.
I'm adding a 125 AMP sub panel to my Main Breaker panel this week. I will run 6 more 20 AMP circuits from that panel to six 20 AMP receptacles (outlets) from the garage over to the recreational room downstairs. That will be enough to power a total of 36 Bitmain Antminer S3's. By the way, I've installed LED bulbs in every light in the house to cut down on electricity bills.
I have 26 more Antminers to go till I have my 36 units [A total of 16.776 TH's according to Slush's average of my present set up. I hope to have all 36 here, installed and hashing by the end of November!
Averaging approximately 0.01754775 BTC per block [With 10 miners @ 4.668 TH's] during the 22nd day of September. That was an awesome day, to say the least!
13 BLOCKS IN ONE DAY!!!!! WOW!!!!! TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE!!!! AND IT WAS MY FIRST 24 HOUR PERIOD AT MINING!!! BEGINNERS LUCK I SUPPOSE LOL!!!
