Picture of my 2 Titans. Powered by EVGA 1600 and Bitmain 1600 watt PSUs, using about 11 amp, 240V. This is what remains of my miners in my garage, S7s and Avalon are at sidehack's place. Can't afford to run them at $.34 peak hour rate (6 hours) any longer.
Nice setup. What is your electric? Mine was 13c kwh. Now in Minnesota so have 'winter rate' a bit lower for those with electric heat for 4 months or so 12.3c kwh (big whoop). This
is due to nights long and some modest electrical $$$ relief for if your house has partial electric heat or say space heaters etc (again big whoop)
However.....I mentioned I had Server equip to an xcel when rep i asked why the electric bill was way up and my calling on the question on why above elec rate went down a bit (the above) and they said 'wow' your electric went way up 220 a month ave....
I off hand went yeah ..said it was server equipment ..(figured wtf the rep might not like a bitcoin rig on my 100 amp panel) to sidetrack the rep anyway....I said I had to cool
it in summer (if they want to assume elec costs are a/c from that fine..i used fans) and keep it at 72F in the winter warm (was scrambling to justify my electric rate ..cause was wondering wtf the reason was she was asking)
anyway was told that I might 'qualify' for electric heat as my MAIN heating method....and it would be between 9.5c kwh and 10 kwh.....er...I went er "yes it is primarialy via electric now....not gas heat....(wtf if they don't bother to ask that most of the heat is coming from server equip who am I to tell them...they would not like the btc equip angle either I'm sure) so she flag'd it we will see
just an aside...but if they just look at my bill they probably will just 'rubber stamp' it ..if not ...they can come over..I will show them my Titan(s) ...they will laugh and go NO!
a bit of an aside from picture thread here but figure folk may get lucky and use my trick ...its the truth with the mild winter ALL THE HEAT on my house the last month has been from the two 2500 watt Titans......so anyway 54 bucks a month savings...and my gas bill went down 35 bucks on 'budget plan' too boot .....pretty slick ...I should know at the end of the month if this has been adjusted...anyway just for 4 months maybe but what the heck
Also as you can see from my above link/pictures I went with the more "KNC as a Shrine setup" (I was such a knc newbie kool aid drinker ..pathetic)
I see that you went more for the "KNC is evil and chaos reigns theme" which is much more approprate
anyway something for folk to look into the electric winter rates for above......and if they take it this year at that rate and I call them next year when the miners go to door stops
I'll just say gas now again is my primary heat method.....no way to lose on this ...if they inspect they will say NO...if they don't inspect....the xcel rep flag'd this for server equip
not me...so all should be golden no matter what (or I pay them the 216 in savings if they get 'spiffy' about it all )
later again will let you know on this forum when I get my next bill if this worked
