Excellent looking setup. What kind of boards are those and what do you use to power and manage them?

Currently mining away at 1651MH/s using 155W (2xBFL, Router, USB hub) at the wall.

That's a nice and clean setup, which linksys router did you use? not familiar with any linksys that comes pre-loaded with dd-wrt only know the Buffalo models that do, how many units do you think the little cpu on that router can handle? I just might use something like this instead of the cheap computer I was setting up on my table for the singles I ordered.

I got more details here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=76685.0

It's an e3000 and you'll have to load DD-WRT yourself. It's not TOO difficult, but you do have to be careful.

Looking at processor and mem usage, I think it could probably handle the full 100 possible.

Just my Mac Mini server with 3 BFLs 10 BFLs (5/17).  Moved into a cooler place, and humming along nicely.



Finally running cgminer native as well:



Only waiting for the new power-source and cables to replace all these crappy powerblocks.

I'm not sure how cost effective using a mac mini server is... But it looks nice!

Nice! What is the power supply rated for, and about how much power do the router and switch take by themselves?

650W gold PSU, so it's running at ~73% rated power.
Router and hub use ~12W

I don't see a Ethernet to the router. Using wireless I presume ?

What is CPU load and does it not overheat from cgminer coordinating them BFLs ?

Yeah he's using wireless Tongue

And I'd assume he's using MPBM on openWRT, yeah?

Very nice. Looking for a used e3000 right now. This will make a sweet miner manager for the BFL singles. Does the cgminer 2.4.1 also have icarus support?

Actually, less. Probably 65% or so.

You see 480W at the wall, but this PSU is probably outputting ~425W to the router & singles (~89% efficiency). That means 425/650 = 65%
A 650W PSU running at 100% would output exactly 650W while pulling more than 650W at the wall.

Icarus, and possibly ztex, but not sure if ztex will work or not.

And yeah, forgot to consider the losses in the PSU.

I'd like to see a picture of how to hook up a single to a power supply instead of using the brick that comes with them.
