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

We're using the black box's here (courtesy of https://blackbox.cat/ ). I'm pretty happy with them. I bought one for our own testing (Allmine directly, these are SQRL units). If you're not planning a massive rig you should be ok with any motherboard / cpu combo that supports PCI-3.0. I would recommend a slightly more powerful CPU than what you'd normally use for mining (low-medium end quad core).

I have an inquiry about the timing of the prospect of a refund, but at all there is no answer. I am shivering thinking it is a SCAM.

Same thing here.
I d like to see my refund  too some time before I die. I bought cards in June and refund was requested in the beginning of August.
Every time i inquire  it is always  "another 2 -3 weeks to wait", when I get a chance to get an answer. Later they ran out of money for refunds and said they had to  sell the remaining cards to refund. Now as i understand, all is sold out and there are even additional funds from PayPal  available.  But still no time to do a few clicks to authorize a transfer.  SQRL support just answered that they have "no definite timeline for refunds".   I hope I won't hear next that "we are too busy developing  bitstreams" as a next excuse.   Sad
 I do not know if this guys are building cryptocommunism for a greater good, revolutionizing mining or just making money - i do not care, this is not a reason for not taking care of a refund. I only know that i did my part and send my money 4 months ago to some dudes  but haven't got it back yet. (So far I had to resell on my own some of cards from my orders to a new buyer to get part of the money back, partially at a loss).
I can only hope this is not a scam. Let's hope it is not.  Sad May be, the amount is not significant enough to pay attention to a 2 month old refund inquiry, for people who move millions via their accounts. I don't know.  But 14K is a lot of money for me.

@senseless,
@GPUHoarder

Honestly, I do not even  know what to think now when I haven't seen any answers in DM on Discord from Allmine or SQRL Research for over 10 days now. We have been patient long enough.  How long can it possibly take to do a refund?!  - 3-5 minutes and a few clicks. Hire somebody and pay for overtime if you have no time but do the damn refunds finally!
What are we supposed to think now?  That  you guys are day trading with the money or something? Or preparing to enjoy net operating losses on personal tax returns at our expense for the next 15 yrs? Is there even any money there?

@cryptolumos,
 I was referring to private messages (DM)  on Discord. I was also asking in the boards about updates on refunds and shipping. Only updates I have seen relate to  shipping and tech support on bitstreams and BCUs in general-  i do not know how they relate to refunds. There was one mesage last tuesday (i do notkno wif the guy is a customer or a joint venture) that it may take longer to process refunds.  I got relieved a bit though when I saw photos with boxes. It was really strange not to have them posted earlier. But at least now we know the BCUs exist. It gives some hope.  But it does not explain why nobody can take 3-5 minutes off or hire a secretary to make refunds. Angry

Think of this  - as customers we are only considered when we have paid. We do not say "sorry i will pay in 2-3 weeks or may be later when and if I get paid, may be, but please send the goods today". But for some reason we are expected to exercise patience and consider every problem of a vendor/seller that should not be our concern. And this all is presented as if somebody is altruistically saving the planet or feeding the poor. May be they are, and there is some altruism involved  - I cannot tell.  Good if it is. But nobody signed for that here.

From what I've read the focus is to get the gear out then refunds. I don't know the logistics of the refunds to comment on how quickly they could be done. With the staff they currently have its all hands on deck getting gear out. You will get your refund but its not the priority at this point. Again this is just what it appears like on the discord.

I read all that, and i ask myself why such a priority.  I noticed also that there is some work being done on the bitsreams right now. Why not take 2 days to do refunds instead?! May be shorting cryptocurrencies is another top prirority, who knows, and you need money for that afterall...  Who cares if customers miss bullrun or other opportunities. We have already paid - now we can wait, right?

Ya can't make any money on refunds if the price of BTC is depressed....wait for a pump and 'wa la' refunds...

they are 'stalling' like the rest of us on bills/etc we need to pay till the last part of the month. (hey, its what I do as a pray for a pump in alts and BTC)

not sure why I try ..I always sell at the low and buy at the high anyway...(its a gift) Sad

Images of the work I've done tonight. All the units on the systems + the completed units on the racks = about 250.

I've been awake for 24+ hrs working to get these boards ready. So, this might seem a little harsh.... I don't have the time to please everyone. I've chosen to care about the people who still are my customers than those who requested refunds. You'll get your refunds. When I've had time to sleep, shower, brush my teeth and get all these boards out... Until then, please escort yourselves to the back of the bus.

great!

But the problem is not to contact the customer.
As long as you keep expensive funds, you should deal with inquiries from customers.
I sent e-mails to Allmine-sales many times, but in the end I did not get an answer. It can not be helped even if it seems to be distrustful.

If you are busy because it is busy, you should take measures such as hiring a corresponding person. It will be a problem because I will not do such a thing. I trust about your products, but I can not trust your company.  Although BITMAIN has caused various problems, communication with customers is extremely polite and product shipping will not be delayed. That is one of the major reasons that companies maintain market share.

At Discord I was fortunate to be able to hear directly from you, but many customers are frozen in money.
There will be obligation to widely explain the circumstances.  Smiley Smiley Smiley

sorry but refunds has to be procesed in a certain time.  Refunding costumers will wait 6 months because you do other work. Understandable, you are not a robot, but still... get some help.

I could be talking to customers about the products or shipping customers their products. I think the customers (and myself) would prefer that things ship.

@senseless, I hope those who are looking for refund would not need to wait for waterblocks delivery issue to be resolved. And then for installation of those. And then for what comes next after that.
 Please confirm.

Send me a message on DIscord (@Cryptoman#0825)

To get my money back sooner I will gladly sell you my 4 FPGAs from the 1rst batch at original price (non-RAM BCU1525). EU or US or Canadian wire transfer. If Paypal then the price +plus Paypal fee.
Price is 3,350 per item. But I need to ask if they haven't been sold yet by the Allmine/ SQRL. I am waiting for refund anyway therefore  I do not know what the latest news are. But as I understand, the joint venture has already sold out everything that was supposed to be refunded  a week or more ago.
Would be great if the Allmine and SQRL could confirm if they have resold everything already.

Thanks for linking the channel and to your offer. However, I am more interested to dealing with them directly so if there's any problems, I know who look for. Anyway I wish all of those who requested for refunds will get refunded. There will be people to fill that slot if given the chance. Also, i'm still disposing GPU's so i'm not in a rush.

Edit: Discord Channel link don't work. Anyone have invite link?
Edit 2 : Ok. Done some few research. Figured out there's a September batch at blockbox.cat website.
Edit 3:  Got an invite link. Thanks!
