Any net earnings ? 57 GPUs making 0.2 BTC/day each is still 3400$/month.

Your math is pretty accurate. =) ... Plus, they've been running since early June...

Ha.  Just got my bill.   $1,685.88 @ $0.34/kwh.

-EP

Yes. You do win!

Are you at all concerned about humidity if you're just using straight outside air?

It's been through a couple of 'rainy days' already.  Haven't had any issues with them yet.  I do check on them once a week to check for dust build-up, etc. or anything out of the ordinary.  All of the components still look brand-new after a quick blast from compressed-air.

Cheers,
Kermee
Nice, good to know, thanks for the reply.

Mine's been running since like mid to late July and I slapped a Kill-a-watt meter on it and added 1 more card since.  So my seriously OCed 5830 pair are pulling about 460W at the moment and it's logged 172 KWH so far.  @ 12.6 cents each that's a mere $21.67.

But wait, there's more  Grin Cheesy That's approximately what I made exchanging currency on tradehill.  You know, buy low, sell high, that kinda thing Tongue So I guess I'm mining for free  Grin hehehe.

I'll be getting my 1st "True Bill" with a full month of running 8 cores 24/7.

I'm in southern cali where they really like to pull out the rape stick. Shocked My last bill was just north of $400 when it's normally $100 Max.
The kicker is that $120 of the bill is a "penalty" which goes to pay poor peoples electric bills.

This is also with no ac contributing to bill, just fans.

More to come, Peace.

Lol @ electric penalty to pay poor people's bills.  California is so messed up.  It's no wonder the state is going bankrupt.

Here is my second full month bill.  I started with 3 cards on May 29 and gradually built up to 25 cards today.

The bill is what I was expecting based on my energy use measurements.  My rate is $0.155 / kWh.

Balance so far after two months:

Computer stuff        $-9,700
Electricity                    -570

Bitcoins sold             $4,330
                              _______

profit                      $-5,940

so what's the problem? according to my calculations, 57 GPU should make at least $1600 per month at current difficulty and $10 per btc so you should be fine.

Excellent idea mate, that's what I've been doing too.  Keep a good amount of cash and BTC in your exchange account so you can trade in and out of the swings (they've been happening at the end and beginning of the week for the most part, usually at off-hours if you live in the US due to the foreign BTC markets).  Just reading up and following the technical indicators along with some practice will help you make some well-educated guesses which should help pay off your electric bill easier Grin

Next bill...



Still no cops...

... And yes, still making a tidy profit.  Break-even point @ current difficulty of 1689334 is $2.02 USD/BTC.

Nice work wrapping the power meter  Grin

I'd imagine the pacific northwest has the lowest retail power rates in the US.

Break-even in socal is around $4/BTC, not counting cooling.

I'm nearing the point of profitability with BTC prices at $4. I'll have to shutdown mining if it lands at or below $3.50 for more than a couple days.

I've seen some places ~$0.06/kWh in the U.S., inclusive of all delivery charges.  But PNW isn't too bad.  It use to be a lot lower ~$0.04/kWh a little over a decade ago.

Cheers,
Kermee
