Why not get an Intel Atom board? I tried one before and couldn't get it to go above 15 Watts whatever programs I ran.

They're small and you can get fanless power supplies for them.

Add a small SSD disk and you have a dead quiet system.


You can put either Linux or Windows on them (I tried Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12  something)

This thing looks good.
How is it powered? With a normal pc-power supply (if i have no fanless PS)?

Hi ChipGeek,

i followed your instructions - my ZTex isnt found again.
Even the option -S isnt recognized by cgminer

[2012-11-12 16:56:29] cgminer: -S: unrecognized option

This time i have taken the cgminer directly from git - as you mentioned in your instructions...

Did you include the " --enable-ztex " option when you ran autogen.sh?  Like this:

sudo ./autogen.sh --enable-scrypt --enable-bitforce --enable-icarus  --enable-modminer --enable-ztex --with-libudev

If you did, I would post your questions on the cgminer thread.  (Go to the last page of the thread I posted previously.)  I do not own a Ztex but at least one of the developers (kano I think) has one and should be able to help.

It is powered with a 1A cell phone charger.  This is one I recommend as some typical phone chargers do not have enough current capability or have slightly too low voltage.

Because a RPI is smaller, cost a little bit less and use less energy. But with the Atom you can power up to 4 devices without a hub and you can easily power it with the same PSU you use to power your FPGA/ASIC miners. I am asking myself the same question.

The atoms I tested had som small internal power-pcb and was powered by a laptop supply.

It might be a good idea to get the power supply from the same vendor, I had a weird problem with one board refusing to start up at all with a another seemingly identical psu.
