that's good a skill to have, the way i see it anyone with good semiconductor knowledge has a shot at building their own miner... unfortunately i don't have otherwise i'd try my hands in getting one done via outsourcing...

I can do FPGA but the problem we don't have such a big demand here.

Problem is the cost of development is quite prohibitive Sad  .  You can't really do it at home DIY.

Only 1500MH/s on 2x5850, 1x5870 and 1x6970 combined. Haha profit so tiny, not worth the discomfort of having 4 cards warming up my already very hot room sia. Dustcoin gives me an estimate of $1.61 profit a month.

No wonder.
4x cards = huge power draw.
Try to sell off those cards and change to 2x 7950 or something then LTC is profitable again.

Yeah. Assessing my options now. Even LTC isn't profitable right now because of the power draw and value of the coin.

Just calculated 756 Watts from your 4 cards alone.
If swop out the 3 lower models to a 7950, power consumption would be around 500 Watts nia.

Sekali PAP impose some regulation.
Anyway on FYB recently need verification for 1K and above balances.
I think MAS scared money laundering.

Anyway I am currently mining with 2x 7970 around 1.3GH.


Me too, I'm running 3 Sapphire 7970's with triplemining.com.  It averages 1.97 G, but it's damn hot and I'm scared to check the electrical consumption!  Does anybody know of a good kill-a-watt style watt meter that works on 220v or 110/220v?

Hey guys, I'm new on this thread so I wanted to introduce myself.  I first heard of bitcoin back in 2010 and tried some mining but lost interest quickly.  The value of a btc was minuscule and my graphics card was not even good for gaming so I could only make a micro a day or something silly like that.  Anyways, the value popped and I'm still kicking myself for not paying any attention to it last year.  Yesterday I had the opportunity to get in on the terrahash preorder.  I was actually hitting the refresh button on my browser at 11:58 and at exactly midnight the shopping cart opened up.  My order was like #21 but just before forking my hard earned cash over I came to my senses and cancelled it.  I'm mostly interested in the technical aspects of mining and if I can make a profit out of it that's even better.  The way I see it, terrahash isn't much further ahead than any of the other DIYers.  If BKK, the designer of the board isn't even ready to test, I don't see how TH would be.  I've looked at the power, cooling, and control requirements of the Avalon chips and my impression is that the klondike design is going to need a fair amount of work before it's ready for stable hashing.  Instead I've decided to accumulate some BTC and get in on a Avalon chip group buy.  Avalon chips clearly have value, they have already proven themselves capable of driving rigs, while a klondike miner preorder has unknown value.  The feasibility and timeframe are both uncertain.  I would like to buy about 125 avalon asic chips and wait for the board designers to get a working model done.  Then I'll buy the working boards and finish the miners myself or outsource the final production.  Worse comes to worse, I can always sell the ASIC chips at a slight markup to others who don't want to wait for a batch order.
