well... coupons are good through may .. hopefully that means for at least that much longer. u know it takes five days to get usd turned into coin through coinbase. at least for me it does. i don't like to use mined coins to buy hardware. so it takes me little longer to buy new hardware.

heh, I am just the opposite...I prefer to ONLY spend mined coin on new hardware purchases and only purchase coin when absolutely necessary.

hmmm.. well there are a couple reasons to my theory.. first it is easier to claim my new hardware for the us tax rulings.. and second is that i dont have a lot of confidence in the usd reserve currency right now so i been moving new money into different assets and i consider mining hardware as an asset. i have a pretty good ant farm colony mining operation going so i am mining full steam ahead.

Very good point of view mate. I am on a fixed gov't income (disabled veteran) so my monthly USD budget is not very much and the xtra income from mining helps me enjoy life a little more than if I wasn't mining.

wait 2 minutes
 go to miner status   no x's   we hope.

   mdude   has an ant s-1 monitor that reboots automatically if x's turn up

maybe he can post a link to it. I use it with windows 7 in a vm on my mac mini  look at the monitor on second shot.

I have a link to it in my sig.

From my experience soft reboots take care of most of them.  But sometimes you have to give a hard boot by powering it off, waiting min 10 seconds, and powering it back up.

I've been using these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3TR1GD2665

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103069

These are running full throttle and right now for me the Akust is the clear winner here.. It's quieter, throws more air and... over sized ...

46/48 with only stock fan average

40/40 and 41/40 with the Akust and 43/44 average on those with the Cooler Master

Ambient is ?  22/23C it's not as cold as the rest of the facility


look..

 There's no way you could tolerate being in the same room as these Antminers for very long.

I had some Alfa panels lying around, which work great:



The Antminers are downstairs in my garage, never lose signal, never stops hashing.

A fan broke on one of my antminers so I just put a desk fan up to it, no problems.

As mentioned, you need to put these miners in a room you don't go in often, as the heat and noise will drive you insane.


Hardly anyone speaks English on this forum.

Yes as pull fans.

I have box fans blowing full blast on sets of 3 ants, so little 120mm fan noises really aren't noticable.
