Would you be willing to ship and purchased chips to another user in a different country? I've been looking into burnin's service in case your assembly plans fall through.

Either you own the bitcoins(private keys) or you don't. However with moneroj, nobody knows what you own.

I too am interested in assembly.

I am in the process of moving (back) to Idaho, so my question is twofold. One, are you anywhere near the Boise area, and if yes, would face to face pickup be possible?

Kevin.

I'm up north, close to Spokane and Coeur d' Alene, and face to face pickup will be available to whoever would like to come out here.

I should have solidified assembly plans next week.

Best,
Garrett

Any update on the assembly plans and 16 or 64 chip boards?

Waiting to "liquidate" some bitcoins for chips but need some updates first Garrett. Looked around and I'm sure you're busy with cog and other projects, but I think if you update this thread with plans you'll sell the majority of those chips real quick.

Update :: June 15th

Here's the post you've all been waiting for!

These last two weeks have been extremely busy. I've been working tirelessly with multiple board developers and producers, and finally have some firm numbers.

Initially, I am opting for the Klondike K16 boards. As you might infer from the name, these will house sixteen Avalon chips each, hashing at a rate of ~4.5gh/s. I am currently speaking with another board developer who will be selling overclockable boards, so we can get the most out of our chips!

Current board costs are tentatively set to $130 (but paid in equivalent BTC), and are subject to change depending on how many boards are ordered. If you order 20 or more boards, the cost will be $10 less per board.

Because of the extremely low order number of this batch, the price per chip has been moved to 0.1.

Best,
Garrett

Yes, see the FAQ regarding changing your shipping address.

How much is going to be the cost of an assembled board (chip and heatsink installed)?

The cost specified above is for the fully functional miner including all components. You will have to supply your own power, however.

I just ordered 31 chips, I'm going to order 113 more chips thursday (if they are still available) for a total of 144 chips (9 boards)

Bummer. not the update i was hoping for. Regardless thanks for taking the time to get back to us.

Anyways, may I ask who will be assembling boards and where it will be done? Are they engineers, computer techs, hobbyists? How many people will be working on assembly at a time? Is the expected turnaround still about 2 weeks? Is $130 a near final number, it seems slightly steeper than the majority of board assembly services I've seen, what sets yours apart.

I apologize if this feels like an attack, I assure it is nothing of the sort, I would just like to hear more about the project. I'm wary of sending money anywhere too quickly. Due diligence pays tenfold.

Cheers G!

Hi Ben,

The boards will be produced in a professional assembly house, by trained people who know exactly what they're doing. Because the assembly etc. is being outsourced the operation will be highly scalable, so there should be very little lead time to make chips into hashing miners (most likely under 1 week if you choose to overnight all the shipping). The $130 mentioned above will very likely be the final number, although you should not count on it yet. There is always the possibility that the board designs do not work and we have to go with a more costly board design (and that goes for all of these ASIC projects), although this is extremely unlikely. What I believe sets me apart from other services, is the increased likelihood of a fast turnaround. I will be producing boards for 10,000 chips before this group-buy order arrives, so I will be able to familiarize myself with the process and hopefully make a bunch of clients happy Smiley

Best,
Garrett

Update, 16 Jun:

I am working closely with a private board developer who is creating host boards for Avalon chips that will be able to achieve a higher hashrate per chip than standard boards. I will only be selling these boards to people who have purchased chips via my group-buy. Specifics will come within a month, after we have created the first batch of boards and stress-tested the heck out of them!

How many chips planned for each host board?

Will it be possible to send the chips from you to the manufacturer of the boards and then have them shipped to us?
