OK guys in the past (and I am guilty of this myself) we have mentioned Slush and the great atmosphere and payouts around the web. Now there are getting to be too many pool hoppers so can we please not mention our beloved pool on other message boards anymore? I think we have just enough of us now to find enough blocks without it being so crowded that we only get a tiny percentage (as happens when that 11 TH block jumps in as it does every two days or so now).
Just a thought.  Smiley

That was the an old post we are currently at 7.8 PH but usually hang around 5.6 to 6.2 PH when we don't have all the hoppers dropping by,

Yes, usually between 6200 TH/s to 6700 TH/s from what I've seen since the difficulty last went up. 

The weekends are usually the worse for pool hoppers.  I wish they would choose a pool and stay! 

We do great till they come by our pool and mess up the moe-joe!  It gets us out of sink or something and takes HOURS before we get it back.  We do actually deserve to be a 20,000 TH (20 PH) pool.  However, I'm thankful to have a higher portion of shares of blocks found while the hoppers are away!

Anyone have any info on how many GHS-THS it takes to find and solve a block?
I am thinking of starting a private pool and only allowing x amount of members totalling x amount of hashing

Then when we find a block it will be distributed equally amongst the members naturally all members will be required to bring their share of that x amount of hashing to the table.

I myself have 10TH/s to bring to the table

second question anyone know how many watts a overclocked s3+ uses? I am thinking of upgrading my units to s3 units but need to weigh in if there is any true savings to go that route currently I run a rack of cointerras

and why only 1 payout yesterday i normally fetch 4-5

and why only 1 payout yesterday i normally fetch 4-5

I have 10 Bitmain Antminer S3+ overclocked at 231.5 MHz to 237 MHz.  Combined, according to Slush's Pool, I'm averaging 4.7 TH's with those 10 S3+s, even though I KNOW they are hashing faster than that. 

It is hard to say how many watts at the wall you will pull per S3 without knowing the PSU used.  I'm using five (5) Corsair AX860's [One AX860 for every two S3's].  My AX860's are PLATINUM rated and are very power efficient.  I'm pulling 718 watts at the wall with an AX860 powering two Antminer S3's without being over clocked; 728 watts at the wall with just a slight bit of over clocking.  I've seen other PSU's on youtube that would pull as much as 740 to 760 at the wall without over clocking.

A cheap easy way to KNOW your power usage is to order the following on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000RGF29Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The P3 International P4460 Kill A Watt EZ Electricity Usage Monitor will allow you to edit how much your power company charges per kWH.  Then, you can see how much power was used by what is plugged into it.  This is a valuable tool if you have a business that you have used to buy your miners and you need to KNOW how much power the miners are using so you can write off the power usage on your taxes.  Do NOT write it off on your taxes if you are not reporting your bit coin mining earnings.

The pool idea sounds great!  CK has a solo mining pool but the miner who found the block gets all the earnings minus .5%

At present difficulty [34,661,425,924], finding a block is represented depending on hashing power.  I did a few "What If's" based on assumed hashing power:


50 TH/s = 34 days, 11 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

60 TH/s = 28 days, 17 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

70 TH/s = 24 days, 14 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

80 TH/s = 21 days, 12 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

90 TH/s = 19 days, 3 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

100 TH/s = 17 days, 5 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

110 TH/s = 15 days, 15 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

120 TH/s = 14 days, 8 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

130 TH/s = 13 days, 6 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

140 TH/s = 12 days, 7 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

150 TH/s = 11 days, 11 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

160 TH/s = 10 days, 18 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

170 TH/s = 10 days, 3 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

180 TH/s = 9 days, 13 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

190 TH/s = 9 days, 1 hour (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

200 TH/s = 8 days, 14 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)



THIS INFO ABOVE should be enough to get you started with an idea of what you need to find something in a matter of two weeks without much problem.  IF you want to solve a block EACH DAY, you need the following at present difficulty:

1700 TH/s (1.7 PH/s) = 1 day (can vary greatly depending on your luck)

SLUSH'S POOL [LATELY] has averaged 6800 TH/s (6.8 PH/s) 6 hours, 4 minutes (can vary greatly depending on your luck).  THAT IS FOUR (4) BLOCKS EACH DAY ON AVERAGE.  However, we have been doing about 5.2 blocks each day on average the last 30 Days.

Four (4) Blocks each day x .01523747 average shares = .06094988 BTC per day x 30 days = 1.82849640 BTC
However, we have done 5.2 blocks per day for the last 30 days x .01523747 average shares = .07923484 x 30 days = 2.37704532
All of that with 4.6 TH/s Farm.  I've made 0.88 BTC the last 7.5 days with this small farm.  We've had a good last 7.5 days.

I have 10 more S3's on the way from Batch 10 as soon as they are available!

Hope this helps...

A BLOCK [$340.00 x 25 = $8,500.00]

60 TH/s = 28 days, 17 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)  ABOUT A MONTH

     12 Miner Farms at 5 TH/s minimum per Farm $708.33 per block found
     6 Miner Farms at 10 TH/s minimum per Farm $1,416.66 per block found
     OR
     4 miners at 5 TH/s minimum per Farm $708.33 per block found
     4 miners at 10 TH/s minimum per Farm $1,416.66 per block found


120 TH/s = 14 days, 8 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck) ABOUT 15 DAYS

     8 miners at 5 TH/s minimum per Farm $354.17 per block x 2 blocks in 1 month = $708.33 per 5 TH/s Farm in 30-Days
     8 miners at 10 TH/s minimum per Farm $708.33 per block x 2 blocks in 1 month = $1,416.66 per 10 TH/s Farm in 30-Days
    

180 TH/s = 9 days, 13 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck) ABOUT 10-DAYS

     12 miners at 5 TH/s minimum per Farm $235.87 per block x 3 blocks in 1 month = $708.33 per 5 TH/s Farm in 30-Days
     12 miners at 10 TH/s minimum per Farm $471.75 per block x 3 blocks in 1 month = $1,416.66 per 10 TH/s Farm in 30-Day

Did a little more math for you.

The hard part will be to get the mining farms to join you.

Also, I can make approximately 2.7 BTC ($918.00 GROSS @ $340 per BTC) on average in Slush's pool every month with 4.6 TH's (10 Bitmain AntMiner S3's).  I have 10 more S3's on the way as soon as Batch 10 comes available.

I personally believe BTC is heading for $550 to $600 by X-MAS.  I'm keeping EVERY SINGLE BTC I MAKE IN MY WALLET TILL IT REACHS $550 MINIMUM.

I figure your pool would work better with larger farms of 20 TH/s [minimum] EACH with a TOTAL HASHING POWER OF 340 TH/s [5 days, 1 hour (can vary greatly depending on your luck)].  That would be approximately 6 blocks every 30 Days for a total of $51,000 @ $340.00 per BTC.  Divide 340 by 20 TH/s = 17.  Divide $51,000 by Seventeen (17) 20 TH/s mining Farms = $3,000.00 every 30 Days.

IF you compare 20 TH/s of hashing power used on Slush's Pool, one could make approximately 12 BTC every 30 Days = $4,080.00

BOTTOM LINE:  A LARGE pool is hard to beat if you have a lot of hashing power.  IF you have an ASTRONOMICAL SIZED FARM IN A WAREHOUSE, such as 240 TH/s all by yourself [7 days, 4 hours (can vary greatly depending on your luck)]; IT WOULD BE BETTER TO MINE SOLO THAN JOIN ANY POOL!  However, Slush's Pool is the best thing going out of any pool right now.  As long as we stay the size we are.  It would still be better if it gets larger; though I hope it doesn't get over 9 PH/s average.  Right now we average about 6.8 PH/s.

The ONLY way your pool would be better is if the pool got very lucky quite often.  That would be a risk the pool members would take.

MY HONEST OPINION

sweeeeeeeeeet Grin

can't wait for Batch 10 of the S3's to come available.  I'm getting 10 more of them for approximately 9.4 to 9.6 TH/s total.

The 10 I have now are clocked at 231.4 MHz each and Slush says they are at 4793.739 Ghash/s (4.793739 TH/s) respectively at the moment.
