KNC Jupiter 550gh 0ct 18th 2013 till now ....very very close to getting 50 btc out of the beastie!





BUT

Bought a KNC Titan (boo I know dumb never ROI now me thinks) so setup up this platform for the rigs
moved the KNC 550gh to this new workbench.

 



(ie Triplitte 220v and 2nd 120v isobar surge protection units ..also note laptop using a cheap never can run
anything beyond window's XP  Compaq EVO n800v with Unbuntu 12.04 free easy to run linux...and then use
 putty.exe to monitor the miner...upgrades are a snap! A good use for all them UN-upgradeable past XP no
longer can run 0/S laptops.......works just fine for miner usage for monitoring)

More then a bit of overkill ..but I got this workbench from Sam's Club and have never used it ...meant too....
but need to pour a cement floor in the old cistern to make a workshop..then bitcoin came along ...so.....wtf.

Anyway the bench is available at Sam's Club http://www.samsclub.com/sams/ultra-heavy-duty-workbench/prod1490086.ip?navAction=

Again probably way over the top on the bench...but hey was not using it ...then just got some of those metal closet shelving kits from
Menard's to make the shelf underneath ...

http://www.menards.com/main/storage-organization/closet-organization/wire-shelving-systems/36-x-12-linen-shelf-kit/p-1633841.htm

with a dongle to attach two shelves into one....a bit of cutting and viola..bottom shelf as seen in above workbench pics.

I admit... pricey... but should work fine for the addition of the Titan (which I should use for good now that I can't ROI on the beastie...maybe
use it to 51% attack sh*tty new altcoins ...start a gang of disgruntled Titan users....run amuck..yeah thats the ticket!)

anyway probably overkill but all was laying about but the wire for the outlets and the shelving underneath in my case

and of course more room to make 'further' dubious miner purchases...(I'm such an ASIC slut!) (sigh)

anyway the little KNC Jupiter 550gh has treated me very well by the by.....thou

p.s. link to all my pics...including the trashed box my Jupiter arrived in (scary) so it goes in basements around the world!

KNC Jupiter 550gh 0ct 18th 2013 till now ....very very close to getting 50 btc out of the beastie!

Interesting so the BTC profability per $/Watt has moved as follows from FPGA to ASIC:

Hardware: 0,075 to 0,005 BTC/$
Electricity: 3,75 to 0.06 BTC/Watt

That's a factor x15 less for hardware price and >x60 less for electricity cost. O_o

Lets push that difficulty a little bit more! Smiley

Remember: if you heat your home in the winter (not overheat!!!) with mining; ROI does not matter!

Hell you can even run old ASICs at a loss, they will always be less expensive than your radiator!

It's not that it is "corporate", it's just not interesting to post a small setup. Nobody cares that you have 2 S1s hooked up to a 750W psu. The days of rat nests, daisy chained motherboards with 20 pci risers and custom GPU mounts made out of chopsticks and bubblegum are in the past when it comes to bitcoin mining.

You're a gambler. If I got a package like this I'd refuse to take it.



tried that ...DHL says the only way to refuse the package was to contact KNC (not DHL) then KNC and DHL would work it out..after that week went by
then KNC would RMA it (at my expense) and any compensation for damage by DHL would go to KNC and then I'd get my (maybe) broken (can't tell he would
not let me open it to look) package maybe  2 to 3 weeks later..yeah I was p/o'd it also does not help that DHL in midwest USA is not really DHL they toss
it on a truck 2x a week to come down from the cities to the bottom part of the state..I guess any trucking firm happens to flow by those days (ie was NOT
a DHL driver or truck) so DHL really really sucks in the USA..and he quite frankly did not give a f*ck in that he had a truck full of farm equip for his next stop
...likely if I did give it back it would have an 'accident' for me being a pain in the ass...sucked it up soggy /wet and all and prayed to the asic gods...

so hell took a chance ...took the package..if it was broke was not like I was not gonna get the RMA any faster...the package was soggy and miner was filled with
rain water in hindsight the fact it was soaking wet most of the trip..and the only way to even keep the miner in the box (middle was gone) was to hold both ends
together and 'hand carry' the thing probably saved me grief of how I heard they 'tossed' these light packages about back then..no way to do that had to hold
it together from truck to truck etc

so anyway dried it out worked great...hot/cold/winter/summer mined around 567gh 40F bsmt or 80F bsmnt no diff just hashed....lucky rain water was pure
so no issues there...all it needed was like 4-5 hours of panic and hairdryer and sitting on hands wondering when/if I should turn the thing on ..with a frigging
paper clip no less ($7.5k unit w/power supply and they can't make a switch!)

so again probably lucky it was wet and hand carried in hindsight the driver did not look like the kinda guy who would walk down the length of the semi trailer
with a box if it was light enough to toss it 40 feet.....(shudder still gives me the hebie gebies)
 
frigging Titan will probably come DHL (crap...had to remind me of this ..crap)

but 50 Btc its really nice piece of Equipment wish all the future miners mine the same or more amount
of coins for you.

Great story, Searing Smiley
I never got a damaged package but every time I order I remind myself to kill the guy if he tries to hand me something like that.
Usually electronics is packed in a plastic bag to stop the moisture so KNC fucked up here, you were lucky. They should start wrapping them in foil, maybe even using double packaging (a small box wrapped in plastic inside a bigger cardboard that works as a bumper). It's really worth it if you're sending something worth over a thousand $. The cost of another box would be what? $5?

but you forgot who your talking about Tongue if they skimped on .16cent more for 50a vrm for neppys...ya really think they gona do all that to make sure your stuff gets there in one piece? also don't forget every piece they ship hurts their DC so they really don't want it to get there in one piece Tongue

I know the frankenjupiter was a joke shipped broken...have not heard on the Neptunes are they actually shipped and packaged  good now? I mean I am getting
a NEVER ROI Titan....if it is gonna be a  hobby toy only good for making up a group/gang of Titan members to squash with 51% attacks sh*ty new scrypt alt coins
for mayhem/fun  well so be it ..but would like this now 'hobby toy' to at least arrive in one piece so I can at least listen to the soothing whirly noises and pretty xfmas
tree LCD lights etc.....it an't much but winter is coming I could use the 'heat'...lol FML Smiley

Agree on the last part that ASIC is better then radiator, but my family don't like the ASIC smell, dont even know if it is hazard.

Uhoh, what miner do you have that smells?

I used 2x "silence modded" BFL Singles to heat my house last winter, they only supplied half of the heat required during the - months, but now I have 2x BFL Monarches on the way so I think I will be able to go all ASIC for heat this winter, at worst I'll boot up the Singles too...

3 things that REALLY are good arguments for the Monarches:

- USB, I have the router in the cold attic and I wan't to use my already stable PC to Router WiFi, all other miners have ethernet port = cable mess, holes in the walls/roof OR multiple unstable RPi/Beagle WiFi radiating crap... hubs are better than switches.
- Silence! The water cooling of these beasts is apparently super silent = good for being able to heat the bedroom!
- Dynamic clock, you can run them like so:

GH___W____W/GH
550 339 0.62
600 368 0.61
650 432 0.66
700 471 0.70
730 530 0.73
780 609 0.78

Which means I will buy a PC thermometer and clock them automatically to get the right temp.

Ahh laughed my ass of at the story Searing.  I know the feeling.  My BFL Single went up in a puff of smoke as I was sitting next to it 5 days after I got it.  I quickly turned it off and then thought about what to do for the next 30 min.  I got a fire extinguisher read and laid down flame barrier - but it failed to turn on.  209BTC for that thing and again no switch - had to plug it in with gloves and hope it wouldn't surge.

How's this for small:



It runs much cooler than the old 65nm BFL hardware I'm going to finally retire after the cold winter months are done with, and without all the hardware errors I had on the BFL --- this is stable at 107-119 GH/s mostly, even when I'm playing flappy bird...

Most of what I've been doing has been OS / rom hacks and stuff like removing the bamc it came with and clearing out to make room for more games and other non-mining stuff.
