Has any one considered the mess these will make of your CGminer display? I've got 56 on one computer and even at 8 point(linux terminal) and the window the full length of the screen i can't display them all. I just use compact display and watch for green lights every now and then. as long as the display scrolls every now and then i'm content. I can't imagine running 100 on one computer. Also, with every increase in difficulty the blink rate decreases Sad No more xmas lites. :Tongue

Don't get me wrong, this is tongue in cheek. I'm not against these. But at this point they require a special type of Miner to own them.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

You might want to start by just running 40 per...  

I'll need a couple of these once they're available separately - I already have plenty of BE's - don't need 40 more with each hub. Smiley



Its a plot to make us buy more erupters!  Grin

lol I just wanted to make sure I had my hub for the Gen3 chips

My understanding is these hubs will be a standard part of ASICMINER USBs giong forward, so when Gen3 comes around you'll easily be able to get a hub along with your order.  But yes, it's obviously a plot to make you buy more BEs.  It's also a plot to make *me* buy more BEs.  I can't order hubs separately last I heard from friedcat, only 1 hub per 50 BEs Tongue.

You can scroll up/down on the list with the arrow keys.  Learned that one back when I (foolishly) thought I could test each unit before shipping to avoid DoAs.

I'm on a holding pattern to buy.  With 11 Erupter Blades, I'm at the limit of what the socket will give me, lol.  Also energy cost is already about $100 a month to operate it.

Waiting on the next gen miners that are faster and uses less power.  I'm afraid of KnC from the stories I've read.

Selling my current rig still does not give me ROI.  I was hoping the full rig would last a while, but no. :-(  The difficulty has skyrocketed!

Put something in my tip jar if I made your day. Smiley

KnC is fine to run as long as you don't go unplugging power as your means to power down.

goat follow proper shutdown procedure

I'll likely take private orders on hubs soon.  Most the other sellers are only giving the hubs to orders of 50+, so they're guaranteed to have leftovers for people who don't order multiples of 50 (since they get 1 per 50 erupters).  I'm offering it for orders of 40+ because I figure that will likely exhaust the majority of hubs I receive since there will always be quite a few small orders that don't get hubs.

I probably won't sell them directly on the website as individual items, just due to the extremely limited supply of hubs at this time.

OK, as near as I ca tell the 49 port hubs don't come with a Fuse and they take an automotive type fuse.

So my theory is that since those are 12 Volt fuses and my ATX P/S supplies 30 Amps 5 Volts that comes out to using a 12.5 Amp fuse.  They don't make a 12.5 Amp fuse so I'm using a 15 Amp auto fuse.  What do you all think?

I'd try a 10 amp fuse myself. Worst that can happen is it will blow right away.  Tongue

It's the sum of the last 24 hours worth of closed shifts - so it's shifted by 8 or 10 hours.

Well, I'm not so sure now.  Looking at the Auto fuses they aren't really rate for 12 Volts.  They just say 32 Volts or less on them.  And I think the voltage rating is just a function of the danger of arcing.  Sooo, I'm thinking I should just stick with 30 Amp fuse since the current is really independent of voltage as I have never seen a wattage rating for a fuse and that makes sense since they have no or very little voltage drop.

I have never really thought about fuse theory before.  But then again I have never seen auto fuses used in non auto applications before either.

I wish the would have just printed on the silly thing what it needed.  Or hey maybe they could have included a fuse?!?!.  But that would have really driven up cost's I guess Smiley.

Anyway, I have my first 10 new BE's hashing away.  I'll plug in the rest after letting it run for a while.

too large a fuse and there is no sense in having a fuse. Fuses are protection against bad things happening. Tongue

It is not an estimate.  It is using real data.  The last 24 hours worth of closed shifts in the case of PPLNS, the last 24 hours worth of share submissions for PPS.  The only part that doesn't work is right after a difficulty change, the PPS 24-hour earnings reflects the *current* difficulty, so when diff changes, the 24-hour earnings takes a nose dive immediately rather than slowly declining over 24 hours.

Being conservative 49 BE's will pull around 27 Amps so I doubt a 10 Amp auto fuse will hold.  Plus modern P/S's have over current protection as well.  I guess I'll wait for Eleuthria to chime in before loading the thing full.
