Basically you keep telling yourself you're "supporting the network!" or "they make great space heaters and make a few BTC cents also!" or "BTC price will spike to the moon in a couple months, just you wait!"

We all know these aren't true, but disregard my stance on the overall mining scene.

I still love seeing these rigs!  Lots of great hobby miners in the community, besides the plateauing of profitability.

The miner might not have the efficiency of a heat exchanger, but it does real work (BTC) and produces heat a side effect. It's completely retarded to invest 10.000's of $ to drill and dig for a machine that ONLY produces heat, no matter how efficient it is.

With the BFL Monarch underclocked at maximum I get 260GH per ~150W and thats important because it is silent! completely silent, I can put it next to the bed! And USB is a great advantage too, because you can use stable WiFi for all your mining gear across the house without ethernet cables.

BFL is coming back with a vengeance!

This is the future! A woodstove, underclocked Monarches with RPi+WiFi and the Oculus Rift CV = goodbye crap debt fiat real reality.

I'm ejecting from this society! Wink


Lets NOT get too far off topic.. this thread is for pics. (which I posted just upthread).

spondolies  sp20:   1220gh  @ 650watts   400$
butterflyL  monarch  260gh  @ 150watts   1300$

I am not that good at math but it doesn't appear to me that BFL is gona sell alot of them!!!

spondolies  sp20:   1220gh  @ 650watts   400$
butterflyL  monarch  260gh  @ 150watts   1300$

I am not that good at math but it doesn't appear to me that BFL is gona sell alot of them!!!

Well I paid 800$ for my Monarches. Actually I paid 3.6 BTC for 4x but that was back in the 1000$ glory days...

I guess the Spoondoolies would be an alternative if:

1) They had customizable speed without going through their interface, which is hosted by them, they take the site down and your spoonies are turned into crap (potentially?) if they are hardcoded in firmware to connect to "the cloud".

2) If they had USB. I need to connect to my 4g router with antenna in the attic, and the house is 200 years old so: no drilling (because it would be rude) = wifi.

I could add photos but they are just monarches with fans replaced with variable speed Nonctua connected to Corsair AX760/860 PSUs.

What I think you (and all other non heating miners) don't appreciate is: monarches have liquid cooling. If you compare the GH/db with Spoondolies they are worth the extra dough, easy!

1. It isn't the "interface" is on the machine itself not hosted by them
2. It has USB and supports Wifi (experimental at the moment), or you could use a cheap lan to wifi converter

So, how do you reach that HTTP interface via USB?

Still it's not liquid cooled and silence is no 1 in home heating.

One more benefit with mining gear heating is that the fans actually rotate the air in the space, and since you put the miners on the floor, that's really good in an old house so you don't have to freeze your socks off!

Hello All,

Thought I'd post a small pic of my small mining operation.



These will soon be replaced with a couple antminer s5 soon.

Specification
My old XFX 850w semi modular psu
2x Rockminer New R-Box 100g both running @ 122GH/s each
Raspberry Pi model b+ running minera.
Antminer PSU jumper

This is just a hobby for me at the moment

Cheers

That's pretty cool, how much did you pay for the new r-box's?

Hello,
I paid around £50 each including postage.

@Zeta0S
Purchased direct from rockminer. I always try to buy my stuff direct from manufacturers rather than resellers.

Hey dude,

That is one nice setup. Just wish the SP20 was like 60 quid cheaper.

Nope no problems. I run 3 off 2 evga 1300w psus and the other 2 off the evga 1600w.

Probably going to move them into my parents garage for some cold and also to get rid of the fan noise in my house.

See, that's exactly my point.

You need to find a way to mine INSIDE of the house so that the energy can come to good use!

This is why the Monarch is actually not that bad!

So buy SP20s, run them at 1200Gh/s and 20% and move on, ohh buy the way the price point and efficiency blows away the monarch.. No loyalty here, just the best option for the money...

3 PSU's, 6 SP20... How many watts are those PSU's or how far down have you underclocked and undervolted those miners?

That's a shmick setup.

lookjs like a trio of EVGA 1300G2 (so about 3.6kW of 12V available), and I beleive he runs the SP20 units around 600W/1.2TH, which fits perfectly

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461 also selling 6" M-F-M PCIe splitters and PCIe-PCIe
No longer a wannabe - now an ASIC owner!
