I've got BitPay set up now, so the currency conversion will take place instantly. Because the currency conversion is taking place instantly, I've changed the listed prices to USD. However, you still must pay in bitcoin.

Let me know if any of you have any questions. Thanks!

If anyone was having trouble ordering earlier, the server errors have been resolved and everything is functioning normally now.

Not sure it'd be practical! Most of the components are small enough that reflow is basically the only way to go, as I understand it. There have been people who've been talking about doing skillet reflows, but I personally wouldn't want to risk my Avalon chips like that.

He's right, skillet reflow is not advisable....but if you have a reflow ovan and air gun its doable...
You could do it with a v. fine soldering iron, but you need seriously steady hands....

Ill be reflowing the k1's myself, but I do have the oven etc

The username of the group buy organizer you bought chips from, which number group buy it was (if this was their first/only group buy, then it'd be batch 1), and the number of chips you will be forwarding to me from them.

Update!

After looking at the availability of alternative parts on the BOM, I'm much less worried about shortages now. The PICs are the scarcest component at present. I have 90 of those in hand and I've sent off for 166 more. They will get shipped to me on July 11th. We should be covered for at least 256 K16s now, PIC-wise. If orders start taking off and we need more, we can switch to the alternative design BkkCoins will be releasing and use the QFN version.

At present we are halfway to having a full batch of K16s, if we substitute them for the K64s. I've sent off an email to Colin to see if he can offer pricing that's competitive with Tate's at that batch size. If so, I will lower the minimum batch size on the K16s.

Sounds  good. Looking forward to placing an order  for K64's this coming week.

Thanks ryepdx. I'd like to get a K16 but only have 12 chips. Any suggestions? Should I try and find more chips?

Earlier I saw one of my customers had 4 extra chips they were looking to offload. I'll see if I can find them again and edit this post with their info if I do.

Good news! I just heard back from Colin. With the number of K16s we currently have ordered and paid for, he's willing to beat Tate's price by $3 and do batches in sizes as small as 10 miners per batch.

So if we go with Colin, the minimum batch size for group buys would be 10 (assuming I can get overnight shipping from Canada on 10 miners for $30 or less). We're way above that number already, so the deal is on! I will be calculating the cost of overnight shipping between Colin and myself to figure out the *real* cost and then I'll get back to you all about the possibility of partial refunds based on the price drop.

Thanks, everyone, for your support. I'm excited to get these chips on boards and hashing. :-)

Thanks for the update, man. I'm stoked about this.

I also sent you a PM a while back. I realize you're probably pretty inundated with messages but if you have a chance and could take a look, I'd appreciate it.

Just for clarification on this, this will essentially yield a working hashing board complete with components and heatsink, correct? The only thing it won't have is a case but pci-e power connector, usb, and all requisite components will be on the boards, right? Just plug in the power supply, connect to computer, install any requisite drivers, start cgminer, and the hashing commences. Correct? I just want to make sure that if there's anything I need to get taken care of prior to receipt that I do it now rather than waiting until I get the boards.

Sorry about that! I was pretty inundated, and it looks like a few messages fell through the cracks. I'm looking at your email right now and composing a reply.

Yup! You will need to supply your own case (if you want one) and PSU, but everything else is included.

Any chance there would be volume discounts on board assembly? I have 240 chips through zefirs GB and am wondering what is the most best option taking into account reliability, turnaround-time, and cost per board. This equals 15 K16s or 3 K64s and 3 K16s. Would it take longer to get the K64 boards tested and produced?

I ordered from steamboat too and after looking at his assembly pricing I'm interested in other options  Smiley

I'll be looking for assembly of 16 miners and I'll have a handful of spare chips as well.

Regarding overclocking: it does not appear that the first revision of the Klondike boards will be overclockable. BkkCoins is planning on making an overclockable revision once the current revision has been proven to work.

Do you want to wait for an overclockable version of the Klondike boards? This will likely mean we get our miners later than if we didn't wait, but it also means we will have the option of overclocking to achieve performance gains of 20% to 30%.

Please let me know your preference so we can decide on a direction.

Thanks,

Ryan
