0a) What to Expect (top)
The Yiazo YBF is a Bitfury generation 2 clone designed by c-scape which utilises the known M and H board architecture. Each mining kit includes one M board
and multiple hashing H boards. The boards come snugly packaged in bubble wrap within a cardboard box. Specs per H board are as follows:

Chips14x Bitfury Gen 2
Hashrate~30-38GH
Rated Voltage12V
Rated Current1.6A
Power.Consumption20W

 

      
 
      
 

0b) What You Need (top)
You will need the following:



1) Powering (top)
YBFs do not come with a power supply, and you will need a typical computer PSU with:

  • 2xPCI-E 6 pin power connectors (only 1 if using 4 or less H boards.
  • 2A on the 12V rail per H board.

Power Supply:
(Click.your.flag)
           

We also need to tell the PSU to always be on, as there isn't a motherboard to do this. Cut a paper clip into a U and insert it into the green wire and either
black wire to the side of the green wire. Tape it up for safety. The power supply will now be controlled by its switch on the rear socket.

      
 

2) Cooling (top)
A 120mm fan is required to blow through the H boards, and two when they are packed closely. They can be low RPM and silent, but airflow is required.
Alternatively, one moderate to high (1600+) RPM 120mm fan can be placed on top of the H boards. There are 2x3 pin fan headers on the M board.

120mm Fan:
(Click.your.flag)
           

      
 



3) Configuration (top)
YBFs contain their own controller and so setup is straight forward.

  • Connect the ethernet cable from the M board to your router.
  • Using a browser, navigate to your router's configuration page to find the IP assigned to the YBF. It will be listed under 'miner-0'.
  • Using a browser, navigate to this IP address..
  • Enter pool information as below, and click "Reset".
  • After a few seconds, press "Reset" to check mining has started.

I would use a bigger fan, the top row of chips is not cooled enough with 120mm.
I have good experience with this expensive 180mm one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835220048&cm_re=AP182-_-35-220-048-_-Product
And put the whole construction on its side, to prevent wobbling of the boards.

Very efficient miner as far as watts. Space on the other hand is going to be fairly large. For a USA buyer the price seems very high. Almost double the rbox again I know it draws about half the power but still....  All in all interesting product that I will keep an eye on and consider adding to my home mining.

It requires such little airflow it makes no difference, and you risk damaging the connectors mounting them on their sides.

?? I have the original M-board and H-cards running like this for over half a year, no more issues since then.

Or you can put something under fan, something which is like 3 to 5 cm high, so the fan covers all the H-Board/chips.

I have a test-setups with 10 H-boards, one of them is put upside down, this is stable, fan in perfect position for cooling.

This is a test-setup of our YBF SHA256 (Bitcoin) Miner. 1 YBF-M Bitfury miner mainbord + 5 YBF14S-H Bitfury mining boards. Hashpower 150 up to 190 GH/s at ±116W at 12V input. Fans are Scythe Slip Stream SY1225SL12-series 120mm, 2x 500rpm. Using these fans you have enough cooling for the miningboards and listen how incredible low noise this miner is.

Enjoy the silence: https://vimeo.com/99945192

Pity these are so overpriced... the performance / watt is one of the best I've seen...
Are these chips really this efficient? Or is this design using more chips at much lower voltage to get power usage down? That would explain the price...

Mixture of both. Bitfury chips have always had exceptional power draw.

Very good, but the prices should be even lower for these mining sets to be competitive with modern mining equipment, keeping in mind all inconveniences of your mining sets...

"inconveniences"  Huh

It is small / compact
Very power efficient
Very stable 99,5+% efficiency at miningpool (BTCGuild) *
Very low noise
Efficient airflow
Easy to setup

I don't want to all this inconveniences

Power efficient?.. Approximately 0.625 W/Gh as I see... 0.52 at best, if this 300+ set will hash at 380 Gh/s consuming 200 Wt... Well, may be... Moreover: "With roughly 20w per board, a loaded controller will clock in at 200w to 300w depending on how fast the individual boards are running and what type of fans are connected as well". Let's think that it will consume 300 Wt and hash at 300 Gh/s... 1 Wt per 1 Gh?..  Cheesy  Where are the real test results?..

Let's compare with AntMiner S4. A set of 7 of your 300Gh sets (to achieve 2.1 Th, because where is the guarantee that it will give constant 380 Gh/s?) costs 1470 EUR and does not include PSU(s) and fans. Let's add to this price a shipping cost... It is curious, but looking not so profitable comparing to S4. At best it looks like S4 in terms of profitability, but...

Power efficient?.. Approximately 1W/Gh as I see...

Let's compare with AntMiner S4. A set of 7 of your 300Gh sets (to achieve 2.1 Th) costs 1470 EUR and does not include PSU(s) and fans. Let's add to this price a shipping cost... It is curious, but looking not so profitable comparing to S4. At best it looks like S4 in terms of profitability, but 1W/Gh...... Too much.

Look at the test from July 4th: 150 up to 190 GHs at 116W = 0.7733 to 0.6105. Avarage that = 0.69W/GH. The nice thing is you can "play" with power efficiency when you have a adjustable powersupply. As long as input is between 11V and 13V the miner is stable (with proper cooling): you can play with powerdraw and hashpower.

And you are right about the S4 and S3 and other miners, they are nice too and I am not saying it is crap of unefficient. I personally also bought, tested and mined with Bitmaintech, KNC, Bitmain, Zeus and other miners, they all work and all have their (dis)advantages but such a stable, efficient and low noise miner as the Yiazo-YBF is I and other who have bought the Yiazo YBF, have never seen and expericiened before.

Oh, yeah, now I see the test.  Roll Eyes

It's OK, my English is not ideal too.  Grin
