Mining is always profitable or no one would do it. You may have to put some effort into, move to another city, make improvement's to your house, etc but its profitable.

Pretty much all the midwest is cheap electric, I am paying 7 cents summer rate and 6 winter, this seems definitely within the good for home mining price.

Yup most of the US is profitable to mine, either on residential or commercial.

If you take about 4.5 cents off these rates that about what the realistic low price you can get in those states.

if you are a newbie..it pays to do the math on your electric bill ..on my electric bill (xcel energy) it proudly claims  8.6c kwh ..when you add state tax fees and the rest of
the odds and ends the real price is 12c kwh...... thus is the rub.....looks good on paper but be sure to figure out what your real bill is by taking all your kwh and divide
by your bill to get the REAL price per kwh...also sometimes in the Summer in some places the rates GO UP per kwh ...so also be aware of that

Just saying from what I understand the typical rate in the USA is 15c kwh or so I was told (with fees/taxes etc as above)

anyway in my case 'home mining' is dead in Minnesota at 12c kwh rate imho.....sigh....after I run these Titan(s) to doorstops that will pretty much be it....

Also that this is the 'pictures thread" here is link to my miner pics on Imgur again if anyone is interested.....(to please the omniscient op's on this picture thread) Smiley

I'm in Scott County Minnesota (Minnesota Valley Electric MVEC) using their EnergyWise program June-August I pay 7c kwh with tax, last winter I was paying 4.6c kwh straight....(no taxes on home heating) and they rarely ever turn it off Tongue  17mwh is still a heck of a bill at the end of the month though LoL

They really were great machines. PSU's were a little cheap.  But I'm looking foward to LKETC's future products of next gen.

don't have enough juice (need to use 3k kwh to qualify) for any more the 12c kwh with xcel I'm in BE county in Minnesota

just saying when I figure it all out taxes and the works vs kwh's used...it is almost exactly 12c kwh here

I assume you have a bigger rig setup then 2 titans and a small house w/o central air?

anyway good for you Smiley

..

Very impressive setup!  Can I ask what your electricity is?  I'm just seeing some gear that makes me wonder if you have a great price Smiley

Electricity Charge: $0.0235/kWh
Electricity Demand $9.00

and yeah all the gear at this DC is outdated but we leave it running just for the hell of it (Took the time to set it up ages ago, might as well use it Grin )

Any reason you're using ATX power supplies instead of cheaper and stable Server Power supplies? Plenty of breakout boards available and could save a bit on set up cost.

I mainly use Server PSU's but the efficiency on most (unless you get super fancy ones[new IBM PSU's]) is rather low. Some ATX have fairly good efficiency rates. I just happen to have a lot of EVGA G2 1300 SuperNovas laying around so I use em, dont got 20 PC's to put em into Grin

But yeah we have hundreds of break out boards and server PSU's. You can see them being used in the picture you replied to Smiley

when setting the miners up we made a server so I didnt have to reconfig the miners I moved over their; seemed like a great idea at first and it worked just fine for a day and a half; then a bad thunderstorm came yesterday and hit the DC and we lost power 2x maybe 5 minutes apart and it corrupted the HD we had the server on lol. So ended up going back down their and just throwing em on the same network as the other miners. Bit of a mess to clean up, but all is good now and seems fairly stable so as far as im concerned; Mission COMPLETE!

Hey Acid the reason imgur reduces your picture quality is because its file size is larger than 1MB. If you can reduce it to below 1MB before you upload it the quality should stay the same Smiley.

Yeah I just recently started using it to actually share some public photos and just an hour ago I looked at the settings and it was defaulted to dumb down the quality; unchecked that shit Grin
Lets see if I can reupload the LED ones again in better quality!

-edit
I looked at them again from PC and it looked like I just took some blurry pictures originally lol, granted imgur made it worse but these other ones are much better so the ones posted are going to have to do for now lol.

You fancy Apple users really overestimate the abilities of your hardware. It's not magic, it's just expensive.

Having said that, look into HDR apps to take nightshots.

Apple is restrictive, censored crap. It is a polished turd and no matter how shiny; it is still a turd. Over-priced hyped bullshit.
