Anyone that's looking at Gekkoscience PSUs or hosting, let me know. We're shipping preorders on the DPS2K boards, hopefully will have stock of the 750W boards within a week or two, and will be able to start taking in hosting hardware this week. Everything's moving slower than I was hoping, but that's sorta how bitcoin works - the only thing ahead of schedule is difficulty increases.

I've had some people ask if we were providing controllers and coolers for hosted minion boards. I can assemble the hardware if people supply coolers and control boards with their hosted minion boards, for no extra charge, but as of yet I have no plans to stock the required parts.

What are the options for hosting btw?

I am looking at 25 boards and there is a limit on how much heat I can host in my house.   Shocked

-BrimStone

You would need more than a single 30A 240V circuit to power them all too.

Sidehack hosts miners for 98$/kW/m.

He might be a little busy at the moment with building the 2000W breakout boards.

Yes, assuming 400W per board at the wall, that's 10 KW.

The heat is not the biggest problem, you could always install large window extractor fans. Or liquid cool with a car radiator outside.

But 10KW power is alot:

If you're fortunate enough to be on 240V then that's 42 Amps.

120V supply and you need to carry 84 Amps.

In both 120 and 240 scenarios you will probably need a 3 phase house hookup and then run 3 * 2 phase lines from your house box spread over your PSUs. Get an electrician to do the house box wiring if you don't understand 3 phase, or be very careful and have some spare street box fuses on hand of the correct value.

10KW constant base power is alot, remember you will have kettles, toasters, other machines running on top from time to time, so expect it to peak at 15KW or more. You'd have a very warm winter though Cheesy

Considering diff increases and that this is for conversions starting next week... should be about the same deal. Its nice that they are keeping that part of the compensation up at least.

That is a worthy of a nod in their direction. They just need to address the overcharged shipping for chip-exchange orders (in my opinion) now.  I don't think the chip-exchange itself is an equivalent deal for what we originally agreed too back in November, but with your help, and arrangement with Marto, it's making the best of a bad situation so far.

Yes. Each chip needs to be cooled with a separate cooler so that's 4 chips and coolers per board. Smiley

thanks buddy... i love the idea of getting more gh/usd ipaid on my x3 order, but paying 1500usd more for 15boards is just too much for me to handle...

thanks!!

bobsag3 and marto74, what's the schedule for the next batch? When does the order need to be converted to chips, and when will the next batch of boards be produced?

For anyone with orders that they are still wanting to convert- BA has increased the chip offer.

120 Chips from now on per X3, 7 Chips per X1.

bobsag3 and marto74, what's the schedule for the next batch? When does the order need to be converted to chips, and when will the next batch of boards be produced?

Next Friday 8/15

I just discovered this thread, thanks to MS facebook page.

I have one X-1 on order from MS, and I think I have this figured out, but not sure. Could you please confirm if I've got it down?

One X-1 = 7 chips.

8 chips = 1xboard w/4 chips, and 4 chip assembly fee - (so I'm short 1 chip - $50 owed?)

They assemble the board, I pay shipping to US address (eta cost? how heavy is the board?)

I then need to purchase, separately, 4 CPU coolers (~$25 ea x 4 = $100), one controller ($50 from MS), and a 500 (or 600?) watt PSU ($50).

End product - 400ghs @ 400 watts, eta early September.

Total additional cost: ~$250 + unknown shipping?

Am I doing the math right? And is this possible for a X1  owner?

Compared with waiting for a 100ghs in the same timeframe, it seems like a pretty good deal, but I want to be sure I'm not missing anything. Thanks!
