UPDATE:

I'm currently operating our lyra2z design with 75W power consumption for 40Mh/s at 0.785v and No bad shares. It looks like we should be able to push this up to 70-80Mh/s (But will require a fair bit of work on our end, timeline unknown). In addition, I've noticed that a 7-8c decrease in inductor temperature (at 60-90c temperature ranges) translates to roughly a 5% decrease in power consumption. The colder the fpga and surrounding components are the less power they use and the harder you can push them. Novec, chilled water loops, and other exotic cooling are becoming more interesting by the day.



Good to hear! May I ask if you release that 40MHs bitstream to public. Very keen to try it.

Update: For everyone contacting FPGA.Land asking that your orders be transferred over to mineority. If your orders from the fpga.land store are not showing up in the mineority store, don't worry. We'll get it sorted out on our end. In addition, I will be on site to help make sure everyone's orders from the multiple portals are put together and everything everyone ordered gets correctly shipped. If you would like to order a water block or qsfp cables for your BCU-1525 you can do so on the mineority store here: https://store.mineority.io/sqrl/  -- Any orders for waterblocks or qsfp28 cables will be attached with your fpga.land orders Smiley

Note: We still have cards for sale that are in batch 1. It is expected that cards ordered now for batch 1 would be delivered by the end of October. If you haven't purchased a BCU-1525 but would like to you can order one  at the mineority store by following the URL below. If any units remain after we fulfill our paypal obligations, we will re-open paypal sales for batch 1 units.

First post in some time.

I've spent the day looking at overpriced FPGAs and randomly ended up in this forum, an old love affair of mine, where I see chips digikey markets for 40k sold at 3k.

I'm not sure what is more crazy between what happened to this place in the last couple of years, how I missed out on all of it, Xilinx's margins on chips, the 90%+ discounts, 2112's memorable posts in this thread (I just binge-read all of it), getting paypal on the phone in 4 hours on a Saturday, or anything else really. It was a fun read, thank you.

My anger against what is wrong in the Bitcoin community is productive:
Bitcointa.lk - Replace "Bitcointalk.org" with "Bitcointa.lk" in this url to see how this page looks like on a proper forum (Announcement Thread)
Hashfast.org - Wiki for screwed customers

Update:

We have received 500 BCU-1525 cards to the SQRL facilities. We are expecting (Xilinx has said) they will be shipping 150 units per day until our order is filled.

If anybody is interested to buy BCU 1525 $250 cheaper, I have orders for x 4 no-RAM  version of BCU1525 for $3350  per card ( original price I  paid in June during the first group buy). Currently the RAM version is being sold from SQRL or Mineority for 3600 USD each. I still have an order for 6 cards alltogether (Allmine/SQRL).  If interested,  PM me here and/ or on Discord (@Cryptoman#0825).
PS: I am simply trying to expedite my refund.

I have reached out to paypal to reopen communication with them as we are going to be able to fulfill our agreed terms for funds to be released and be able to continue doing business through them. We have a substantial amount of funds frozen in paypal. Based on the terms of our verbal agreement we should be able to achieve near 100% funds being released within the next 2/3 weeks. This is of course reliant on paypal keeping to the agreement (I can't control their actions and if they wanted to make life hard, they undoubtedly could.). Assuming everything goes as planned we will be able to refund the remaining unfilled refunds within the same time frame. I will update as things progress.

I've already privately apologized to several on the waiting list. But I'd like to take the opportunity to apologize publicly to everyone who's still waiting on (edit: or waited excessively for) a refund. The only thing I can do is ask for your understanding of the situation. If I had the personal funds to refund you, I would and keep the boards myself. This was always marketed as a group buy / community action to obtain better pricing. Similar to a kickstarter project or other similar crowdfunding campaign. We said from the get go that shipping dates were estimates. I tried as hard as I could to get the lowest possible pricing and achieved it. Part of the reason why our pricing is so much lower than the other legitimate products that have come to market is due to our small margins on the cards. We may end up at a loss on the sales of the cards. We took these tiny margins so we could pass on cards at the best rate possible. We at Allmine had always intended to get the majority of our revenue (and future profits) from fee collection. We are doing the best we can given the situation; I'm sorry if our best isn't good enough.

None of this makes you not having your refund any better. I hope it will inspire a little patience as we work through shipping so we can have our paypal funds released and work through the remainder of the refund queue.

Update: Our BCU-1525 units are flying into the warehouse every day! However, the active upgrades (heatsink and custom shroud) and water cooling blocks are not in yet  Embarrassed . We will be contacting customers in groups determined by order date / time to ask if you would like to:

#1) Have your BCU-1525 shipped ASAP, as-is without the active cooler (everyone gets this) or water block upgrade (if it was ordered). The active cooler upgrade or water blocks would be mailed to you separately when they come in and you would need to install them yourself. This would void your factory warranty.

#2) Have your BCU-1525 shipment held back to wait for the upgraded heatsinks / water blocks to come in and have them factory installed.

It is currently expected that the waterblocks and active cooler upgrades will arrive at the latest 10/29. However, this is hardware and there are many improbable edge cases that could occur causing additional delays. (As an example, the truck carrying the blocks has an accident on the highway.)

This kind of shit can happen in any pre order situation and anyone who ordered in that fashion should have known that there was a chance of this happening so I don't see where you need to apologize to anyone.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Pre-order - Shme-Order ... Doesn't even matter.  The shit doesn't work ... Lots of hacking going on just to get the shit to work.  People bricking 3K FPGA's ... LOL ... Let me know when you have a working product.  I'm not going to waste thousands test netting this shit for you.

Ok, I want you to walk back in there and very calmly, very politely tell the risk assessors to fuck off! -Mark Baum

What's a good setup to buy in preparation for these FPGAs, in terms of motherboard, CPU...? Do I need any additional hardwares?
