$6500 for 10GHs! (Shipped?)

Wow, I was not expecting that much of an expense... Cheaper than a GPU setup, Huh ...

10GHs = ~15x 7970's = $6000 (But still needs 3x mobo-setups... +$600, and 3500W of PSUs 5x750 +$250 -$50 {blade needs one too})
Total GPU setup = $6800... (Minus games 15x$25 = $375) = $6425 (And you can resell the cards and hardware, not so-much with the blades.)

PASS

You can push 12x 7970's to 10GHs... and save another $1400+, = $5025 for 10GHs (Only 2 mobo's and one less PSU) *Not wise to do... lol, it will be a 100% loss after one year.

... And still scrypt mine alt-coins, and play games. Tongue

Most people run their blades at the HIGH clock speed, giving almost 13 GH/s @ 120W.

Have fun paying that 3KW power bill compared to 80W, the heat and size of 3 full open case mining rigs.

So what you've concluded: 4% of the power consumption, same performance, 5% of the footprint.

Good for you!

What it's not clear is:
- do I have to pay in advance?
- do I have to use the escrow?
- did you send the email first and then you made the payment?
- when you ordered your BE (email or payment sent)?

Thanks Smiley

Update:  

5/25:  email received from friedcat with payment instructions.
5/25: paid 49.99 BTC to friedcat 2 hours later.
5/26:  sent follow up email and pm to make sure payment was received.
5/27: received DHL express tracking email.
5/28:  package departed hong kong customs.  From past experience, it will arrive in cincinnati in a few hours and be delivered tomorrow. Cheesy
5/29:  Blade received and hashing away.  Slight issue with one of the chips displaying "X" after hashing for 15 minutes on high clock.  A restart solved the problem.  All chips read 0 after 1.5 hours. 

THANK YOU FRIEDCAT.

mathematically correct
but if you factor in space, power consumption and heat dispersion that's a different story.
I guess people like to invest 6500 in miner, they have more faith in BTC success Wink

Now it's clear,
I didn't get the meaning of "PM to friedcat(this account) or fnnirvana@gmail.com about this sales thread may be ignored." correctly =)

You're not the only one, if you read previous pages. These are ignored indeed, and I believe it should be removed from OP because it has already caused much confusion.

I feel like ASICMINER should try doing another auction to gauge the price point for Blades with delivery in the next few weeks. I would love to see more blades sold, but I doubt there is a huge market for more @ BTC50-ish with diff going up and avalon chips soon becoming widely available.

It will have to sell as many blades as possible before that time.

I sent like 4 e-mails to address in the OP over the last 10 days and haven't received a reply. Pretty lame.

Agreed, it's currently very risky to pay 50 BTC for a blade.

If difficulty only increases by 10% every 2016 blocks, and some folks think it will rise much faster than that, it will take 6 months for a blade to earn 50 BTC.

I'm on the fence but would definitely buy at a lower price point.

This is pure speculation from me (not implying that friedcat doesn't answer incomplete requests), but are you sure that you included ALL relevant details: nb of units ordered, a phone number with int'l dialing code, a ZIP code, a correctly formatted shipping address with country,  and a real name (they need a contact person for DHL).

Another possibility is Gmail's spam filter. If you haven't already, I would suggest e-mailing from an @gmail.com address to reduce the chances of being spam filtered.

I have sent two (polite) e-mails and got an answer after 2-3 days, with payment address. I paid 2 hours later, and I got my tracking number about 55 hours later, but the shipment was made well within the promised 48 hours after payment. And the shipping was *very* expedited, just a bit more than 48 hours from Shenzhen to Geneva. So I have all reasons to be satisfied, especially in the context of (bad) business practices in the ASIC market.

Almost exactly my result, only the first e-mail response came in about 36 hours, and mine was shipped to Vancouver.

Currently hashing away at 13 GH/s with 99.99% efficiency.   Grin
