Very nice!  I hope the ones I get will be in this new rev 3 batch.  Perhaps it won't need the fan on the bottom anymore, then.

Looks like a nice update, with the heat pipe. I like it!

If you ordered in the last week or two, I believe you'll be getting rev 3.  I ordered 30 units myself.

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Agreed. I don't see any direct path for good airflow.

Looks like they have mounting holes.  I wonder if they would sell me a "naked" boards.  No power supply, no case, no heatsink, no fans.

Not worried about the reward halving, huh?

They'll pay for themselves before that happens.

Pardon the newb question (this is the newb forum after all Cheesy ) but where can I get my claws on a few of these, and how much?  I've been drooling on the X6500R3 but seems they're not yet for sale anywhere.

Anyone know what CAD software they rendered that board in? It looks rather primitive. Makes me curious what tool they are using for electrical design.

Solidworks?

What do you expect? It's not supposed to look like it's rendered in Maya!

I´m also tempted to place another order, but I first want to receive something before ordering more.

They'll pay for themselves before that happens.
According to the bitcoin profitability calculator on bitcoinx.com it will take 280 days for one single to pay for itself ($600).  (Assuming a modest $0.11/KHW).

So, since the block reward is going to halve in December, I'd say you're cutting it pretty close for them to pay for themselves by the time the reward halves.  Plus you just ordered them and we know they're having trouble processing all the orders so who knows how long it will be till you actually have all 30 of them in your hands. 

So, in conclusion, if it takes them a month or more to ship them, then they actually won't pay for themselves by the time the reward halves.  Obviously not really a big deal since as you pointed out they will be mostly paid off by then. But still something to think about, especially for people who haven't placed orders yet like myself.  If I order today, it will likely be a month or more till I get the items.

I expect delivery in about a month, yes, that leaves ~8 months... and power cost is 0, since they will most likely be housed in my DC.  But even factoring in power, depending on what BTC prices do, it may be paid off sooner (or later if the fall is dramatic)  I based my calculations on $4/btc.

Hmm I see.  Is there a limit to how many you can put on 1 PC or are you planning to do all 30 on 1 PC with a bunch of USB hubs?

127 per USB port.   I imagine you'd run out of power points before your PC ran out of USB ports Smiley
