Interesting how people are asking "why the laptop", it’s not clear from the picture but the laptop has a console cable plugged into the router allowing me to have a "physical" presence if for some reason the VPN tunnel fails and I need to access the router, also Team Viewer is installed which again is just in case there is a VPN or Telnet/SSH problem (Basically I’m a tinkering bastard and sometimes mess things up).

I still don't get what's the laptop for. Why would you need VPN to access the router? Even if VPN connection fails you would still have access to router through connection without VPN, on regular port. The only time you'll ever need RS-232 cable to access the router is during the initial setup, no mater how much tinkering you do it's just not right to have laptop close to the router. People are trying to tell you out of good intentions that if for some reason you need to have them close you are doing something wrong. Just my 0.00000002 BTC.


I think you may have miss read that fact this setup is 30 miles away from my house. Without a connection via VPN tunnel from my house to the location of the miners, I would have no access what so ever, other than using Team Viewer through the laptop. Team Viewer on the laptop is backup access, also there are a select few commands that cant be done via tenet or SSH and you need console access.

I use this to manage my remote sites:
SITE-TO-SITE ROUTED VPN BETWEEN TWO OR MORE ROUTERS USING DD-WRT/OPENVPN
http://wadihzaatar.com/?p=11

It works very reliably, and you can find extremely cheap hardware to do it. I still can't remember the last time I used the console to check the tunnel status in one of these setups.

Cheers

You put a Team Viewer enabled PC in an otherwise secure setup? Seems like the back door is not as strong as the front door.

Hoping to add to this every month  Grin



Nice mining rig. Simple yet effective. Not just need to turn that laptop into a raspberry pi and ur good to go.

Thank-you all for your interest.
The PSU is a Dell 2100Watt and its quite loud but rock solid, the cables and unit doesn’t even get hot, I made all the cables using 16awg and 14awg, in the end I soldered the cables onto the rear of the PSU because the terminals are tapered not squared, also this will make more reliable connection.

The router is a Cisco 2811 which is modular, allowing me to add more interfaces when required, this is instead of the crappy TalkTalk broadband router from the ISP. This setup is running 30 miles away from my house in my dad’s Pub loft, and I have made an IPSEC VPN tunnel from my home using a Cisco ASA 5505 firewall. This allows me to access all the devices remotely.

a. What's the laptop for?

b. Why don't you put the router/switch just on top/beneath of the S3's?

PS I like your recycling of the packaging material...  Cheesy

The reuse of foam packaging is deaden the vibrations from the dell PSU and Cisco router.

The router does get warm and was concered about warming the ants Smiley

All miners are overclocked at 250 with a total hash rate of 1950-2000GH

PSU costs: £25
Connector block cable and Plugs/Pins = £20
Below is the wiring setup.




I'd love more pics / info if possible on them. I'm interested in running a similar set up, though only starting with two miners and a single dps 1000w psu. What are you making around $15 a day? Only a couple months and they will pay for themselves!

Hello mate

They are hashing at 1950-2000GH using BTCGuild pool and the last 24 Hour Earnings according to BTC Guild is 0.02563142, which is about 9-10USD or 6GBP. Not sure if thats any good?

wow, whats the cost of running electricity in the uk? My guess is high, because he should be earning FAR more than £50 a month.

Good job im not paying for it then Smiley but yes that aside the profit is shite! BTC really needs to jump up to $1000/1.00000BTC

that's calculated at 13p per kWh - which is mid-range pricing... if you have business rates it's likely to be somewhere 10-11p/kWh

yes. expensive.

i'm in the same boat, if I wasn't getting free leccy on my miners, i'd have powered down by now.

yes. expensive.

Where the miners are it has Economy 10 which means the rate goes down from 12p to 5p for 10 hours of the day.

You might find this thread I started useful. IMO its much better to use a server PSU then an ATX PSU. 1 its 5x cheaper to buy, 2 your not running at 90% load and 3, server PSUs are made to be hammered 24/7. Only down side is its fecking loud!
When I go to visit the miners next time, I will get the wattage at the wall.

Oh, it is a server psu. I figured it would not be a good idea to run a consumer grade psu 24/7 under hard load lol

Yeah that should power two miners at stock speed on 800Watts and OC'd at 1000w, not sure what your voltage is in the US. TBH though you would be better having at least 1050Watts per 2 miners, that way there not completly pegged.

Would I make any profit from one of these or would it cost me more in electricity to run it than I earn? Huh Huh Huh Huh Huh

Chances are you would be doing it for fun and not get initial investment back.  USB stick miners are a novelty at this point.

Yep, that is all they good for a novelty Smiley

So far I have 2 no problems with backlights.  And if it's only 20 that is not bad considering i'm sure they have shipped thousands and thousands of them.

Have you contacted their RMA team to see about getting new LCD?
