My rig: koeppeloeppe
4x5850 (1550 MHash)
At what speed / voltage did your 5850 ended up at ?  

In the same vein, (4x5850)

Here is how I build my miners,  These take very little space, provide good cooling and are easy to carry around. (no I don't stack them)

CPU is some Pentium 4 crap, Board is some other crap found in the trash, PSU is OCZ 850 gold.  Plastic box ~4$ at Staples. + 2.5" 80gb for Windoze.

I like the attention to details in using cable ties and cable holders (to stick the sata cable on the wooden base, and the GPU base).

But there's just too much cables to do a proper cable management.

Very nice Smiley

I added to my post info about clock's and temperature...

Voltages are at default level.

Cable management 101 : Is a cable close to hitting a fan ? -> is it blocking airflow ? -> Done


What ?  you are running your card at 900-950 mhz at stock 1.088v ?

On mine moving above 833mhz I am taking risks,  Some goes to 875, none 900 even less 950

What PSU do you have, that's an important part.

My 5850 are generally at 860mhz default using BAMT / no voltage control on linux

You're all doing it wrong.  Grin

I kid, I kid.  I've actually taken down my 3.8GH/s setup and sold off most of my parts, after which I built:






But of course it wouldn't be worthwhile without the sexy lights:




This is definitely a game-centric rig:

3x XFX 6950 @ 845/1325
Phenom II 1090T 6-core @ 3.9ghz
Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5
8GB DDR3-1600
2x 120gb SSD in raid-0 (1GB/s!)

I don't do much mining with it, but it'll get ~1.1GH/s all spun up.  At < 40dB.  At < 50C.  Cheesy

Here it is, 16 x X6500 FPGA Miners for theoretically 4.2 GH/s. With rejects, it looks more like 3.8 GH/s. 258 W measured at the wall.




This whole system is quiet. I have 4 120 mm fans cooling the whole thing. They're all running at full speed, but could probably even be slowed down a bit.

That is pretty frakkin' sweet.

Have you had any issues with the OS addressing that many USB devices?  It looks like you've got a fairly good hub which probably presents itself as such to the OS, I've had some crappier hubs that start to complain when you multiplex >4 devices..

Thanks, and no the OS seems to handle it fine. The worst I've seen is that the bus is a bit bogged down, but that could probably be fixed by polling the FPGAs for nonces a little less often.

Yes! This system is built using the boards that we (fpgamining.com) designed, produced, and are currently selling. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=40058.0

An honest review of this type of system should probably be written by someone other than me, since I'm far from impartial. Hopefully some of our customers will write about their experiences. I'll also try to write up some of the things I learned, so that others can learn from my mistakes. Smiley

The price is $580 per board at single quantity. There are bulk pricing discounts, though, which you can find in that thread.

Can you please tell me how much do you estimate this setup cost you?
It's quite magnificient and quite a job!

  first link in his signature.

  And yes, very sexy. =)  eventually I will get around to posting some pics of the few cards I housed in Capri Sun boxes. Cool

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Cost for you to build this system today:

16 X6500s at $550 each: $8800
Power supply (I used this one): $65
4 120 mm fans at $15 each: $60
Various Molex splitters and adapters: $20
16 USB cables: $50
USB hubs: $30

Total: $9025 / 4.2 GH/s or 2.12 $/MH

A lot of those extra things you probably have sitting around already, or you could find better deals.

The next price break above that is at 25 units. You could still run that many boards off of a single supply (400W) so your overhead cost would only be slightly higher.

25 X6500s at $535 each: $13,375
Power supply: $65
Fans: $90
Various Molex splitters and adapters: $30
25 USB cables: $75
USB hubs: $40

Total: $13,675 / 6.6 GH/s or 2.05 $/MH

You will also need a host computer to run the system, but you most likely already have that and the performance requirements on that computer are quite low.

Note that those $/MH are based on 266 MH/s for each X6500. I have every reason to believe that we will reach higher hashrates with improvements to the software and firmware in the future.
