You have free electric, right?


If you were to partake in any other hobby, would you expect that hobby to pay you to do it?
I always find it a tad idiosyncratic that people tend to think if BTC price is not above a certain level at any point in the day, mining is not worth it.

just because you get free electric, you continue to mine, right?

I have 3 x SP10's on free electric and could put the rest of my miners into the same unit, but I don't, I run them in a garage @11.4p/kWh because it's my hobby and I expect there to be some outlay for the extra-curricular activities in which I partake.

for making a living, i seem to be one of the few who actually go out to work  Cool


As hobbies go, I'm glad you're not into race-horses .. then it goes a little expensive .. else a little self-sustaining initiatives for a hobby can't hurt.

i leave the betting to my granny, she is a whiz with the geegees, i take old Archie (the grandad) to the bookies every saturday to pick up his winnings and always comes out with a stack of notes. i don't know how she does it, she must be the Oracle.

here:

Are the SP35's from stock now or still built to order?
Within about 2 days we'll achieve stock.

Does anyone have any stats on how loud a SP31 is at high, medium, and low settings?

I'm considering getting a SP35, but SP10s were a bit too loud for my taste, so I'm hoping a SP31 / SP35 will be easier on the ears due to the larger fans.

I don't even mind running it at a lower speed if the sound is more bearable.
SP30/31/35s are not as loud as the SP10, but they're not quiet by any means. If you're using 120V, the power supply fans will have to run at higher RPMs which makes them louder. On 220V, they may be more bearable. Due to the small size and high speed of the SP10 fans, the noise the SP10 makes is relatively high-pitched and annoying; the SP30s' noise is lower in frequency and more bearable in tone.

You can run these on 110/120v? I remember reading that they required 220/240v...

Can somebody please confirm?

Thank you

SP31 can run on 110/120V but SP35 is a 208V or above only

i may order a 235 to squeeze a few more th/s out of my power capabilities and to have the ability to branch off with a second  company.

I have been scared of dealing with this company. I don't know why this may be wrong but I thought I had read somewhere that the miners were having overheating issues and the company owner was a spin-doctor talker type scammer.

Like I said I there is a strong chance I may be incorrect but I would like more advice before I ship spondoolies 5 grand in bitcoin

SP20's, 30's, 31's 10's all worked fine and the ones that didn't we've gotten RMA's very quickly.

this company is the most trustworthy in the industry, and the owner is a very close friend of mine.
I would put my house on them delivering on time and on spec.

don't worry.

Performance suffers on 120V for the SP30 and SP31. You'll get about 10-15% lower hashrate on 120V than on 220V+. Computer power supplies are less efficient on lower input voltages, which means they generate more heat, and therefore reach their thermal limits at lower output levels.

I think the power supply used in the SP35 is probably this: https://www.artesyn.com/power/assets/ds1600spe-05-30-131391227406.pdf

If so, that PSU is rated for 1600W output when supplied with 180V to 264V, but only 800W when supplied with 90V to 140V. In contrast, the SP31's PSUs are rated for about 1000W with 120V input and 1200W with >= 200V input.

If you're using 120V, you're probably better off using SP20s than SP3x models.

No overheating issues. There were some issues with the actual miners not meeting the pre-launch performance goals and forecasts. Spondoolies compensated their customers for the performance shortfall with refunds equal to the hashrate deficits. The current published specifications are based on observed performance rather than forecasts, and are more accurate.

Their hardware isn't perfect; it is only the best anyone has made.

I think the overheating issues rumour is based on the farm fire in Thailand. Very convenient for competitors and their shills to use. I even saw one thread where the guy went off on one saying it was SP's datacenter where all the customer rigs are located.  Roll Eyes

Yeah pretty much a given. These sp20s are made for a 15 amp 120 volt circuit

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
