I've stopped mining a while ago but I presume none of you with GPU rigs are mining anything but Bitcoin right?

Sweet setups!

The pool are GPUs are pointed to pays out in BTC on a daily basis. Does that answer your question? Wink

How long have you been using those RM750s? I've heard they're not as good as the rest of the Corsair OEM models using Seasonic or CWT stuff.

Not for profit making....
More for FUN to make and test stuff.
Currently hosted BlockEruptors, Antminers, RedFurys + Dualminers.
All working from Win7 minipc.

The BOX
91-117 port USB miner with cooling.

1x Akasa fan controller + 2 120mm fans 1300rmp silent!!
1x 12v powersupply for the fans
2x 5volts 40A LED powersupplys from eBay, they get cooled with the airflow. Real nice ones you can up the voltage to be +5v, and they keep it STEADY.
7x 13port USB hubs with power modifications done
1x 13port USB splitter

1x Giada Intel Atom minipc + Win7

Work for current and future USBminers.
Power consumption currently 250w


If you not mine - HODL

Real measured watts excluding the minipc now is 217W and it's doing 52GH/s sha-bitcoin and 880KH/s scrypt-litecoin.

Potential with current USB hardwares would be:

(wow to think about this little box be 8MH/s SILENT Scrypt miner)

113x Dualminers 70KHs =   7.9MH/s Scrypt litecoin.
113x Antminers at 2GH/s =  226GH/s Bitcoin.

I like the box for now and future USB miners... maybe to buy Antminers while price drops or populate it with next gen Scrypt miners.
Power usage is covered and would only max those psus around 400watts.

Also the external USB-hub gives this box potential to run anything from Avalon Clone to Hashfast Babyjet (sorry i know HF is swear word)

Is there a limit to the number of usb a computer will operate?

Lets say a mobo with 10 usb ports using 10 49-Port ASICMINER USB Hub.  Would it work with 490 usb miners?  Using Linux of course.

Just out of pure curiosity.

Impossible is a word found only in the dictionary of fools.

We had a very long day yesterday getting all of our hardware moved into our private cage.  We were able to roll 3 of the cabinets into the cage, but we had to move everything by hand for the 1st cab.  Also we got Group Buy #4's monster GPU rig all installed as well.  Here's some photos of how everything turned out.

Bout 2 weeks ago, very much under construction.
And yes, that is a quakecon sign Smiley

how much is rent for a space like that?


Why don't you make a call and find out: http://www.loopnet.com/Listing/16558809/3250-Oakland-St-Aurora-CO/

Tell 'em Bruno sent you, and perhaps they'll give you a 25% discount on your lease agreement for the next 6 months.

I suggest leasing a climate control unit if... (I'm just sayin'!)



Timeline of Matt Carson's datacenter locations.

BUILDING #1: Purchased the building, awaiting infrastructure.

Building was purchased today!
All the wiring and infrastructure equipment arrives tomorrow-Wednesday. Over 400lb. Poor UPS man


<snip>

Thanks- Ill be moving to a custom made facility here in under 3 weeks.

BUILDING #2: Moving to a better facility here (still in Missouri) located 90 miles away.

Major Update!

We will be moving to a much large, much better facility here by the end of the month. There may be a short down time (its only a 90mi drive) while being setup at the new facility, but we will not be turning anything off right up to the last minute.

Building acquired Smiley

I cant answer on the software but I can on the shipping. Looks like the boards should be done here within 48 hours, and then will be dispatched after a small amount of testing to AUS, and me in the US. At least from me, all boards will then be tested again (Not sure how long... suggestions?) and then immediatly shipped out same day via UPS Next Day/2nd Day air [depending on location]. As soon as we know the boards are done, we can give  concrete delivery.

I'd sample test say 1/10th of the boards for a few hours on testnet.  That'd be my recommendation

Yeah I can do that. *might* be able to live stream, or atleast upload a ton of pictures.
I will be shipping from MO. Middle of the country, and if your anywhere close to me Im ok with local pickup Smiley.


And I just want to say guys - Barn has been working very hard behind the screens to bring this all together... this stuff is immensely complex.

Here we are, on November 18th, and Matt still has his datacenter in Missouri at the second facility:


<snip>

This is why I went from garage > warehouse > bigger warehouse. Heat is nuts.

Shenzhen, China    11/26/2013    8:05 P.M.   Departure Scan

Yea, but do the thumbs have any tracking info?  When you get the board delivery after a quick run though where are they coming from for you. I seem to expect California.
No idea on the thumbs- thats all Barn.
I will be shipping out from Central MO.

Does anyone have any details regarding power consumption. The genesis block calculator says expected power usage per unit to be 2100 watts. I am afraid for me that's not going to work. To be honest I was expecting something that would work on a residential 120v circuit. They also do not offer any hosting yet unfortunately.


I got ya covered Tongue
But yeah that is kind of silly. Im glad when I put my new facility together I decided to say fuck it and got all 240v

November 26th, edited on the 28th, Matt Carson is still in Missouri at the second facility: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=347732.msg3723600#msg3723600

And still upgrading his second facility:


<snip>

No problem. Im having a 400A 240V pannel installed just for the 2kw+ miners that seem to be coming out.

On December 12, 2013, fresh back from China, Matt Carson posted the following... BTW, still located in Missiouri:

This makes no sense financially and if it's going to be hosted in a data center it should be using specialized GPU mining racks that can run more GPUs per motherboard/CPU.  You really need open racks and to use PCI-E riser ribbons if you want to build a GPU mining rig, using a desktop computer case makes no sense especially because heat is a huge issue with scrypt mining.  Also to be honest, scrypt mining is VERY finicky compared to SHA256 mining, you're talking about constant lockups and crashes if heat isn't perfectly controlled.  The amount of time that's going to go into keeping everything running is going to be much higher than with bitcoins and given how the Bitfury towers already caused a ton of problems I'm not sure the coop has enough manpower to keep racks of scrypt miners up and running.

The new facility comes with me also having hired 6 more people to help out. I am currently training them right now.

On December 13, Matt Carson hired additional staff to work at his Missouri-based datacenter, to date not mentioning Denver even once.


<snip>

I am working with them right now for me to help with their tickets, so we can get the response time much faster. I have hired additional staff that start work here in a few weeks, and I know they are working hard to improve their systems.

I cant speak on the refunds unfortunately, I am still discussing the options with them.

Four hours later, Matt mentions for the first the move to Denver, right after somebody ask about local pickup since he lives in KC. Did his new hires move to Denver with him?

We will offer local pickups- but we are moving to a massive new facility in CO, so pickups will have to be from there Smiley.

ALSO: I now have access to the BA ticket system, so if you need a response feel free to PM and I can at least check on the status for you.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=288012

We are all moved into the new place, lots of updates and pictures to come!

BUILDING #3:

Somewhere in Colorado, in some warehouse with 16-18 foot ceilings, ideally well-suited for bitcoin miners that love fiberglass dust sourced from the exposed insulation in the ceilings and walls, blown free from the constantly moving vortex of air due to the industrial-sized air conditioning unit(s). Whatever you do, don't open up that massive overhead door that's probably not well-sealed, otherwise you'll really have the dust a flying.

This has been the third time you're on record in stating that you only moved once. Care to try for a forth time?

How long have you been using those RM750s? I've heard they're not as good as the rest of the Corsair OEM models using Seasonic or CWT stuff.

We have 5 rigs like this running 24/7 for 6 weeks, and the RM750 never failed so far (in fact nothing failed at all).
I had problems only with PSU Lepa 1600W, which where failing all the time because of low 5V amperage capabilities (for risers).

Interesting the LEPA 1600 gave you problems.  They're sold out everywhere for people making 5x280x rigs.

Its just totally random. My lepa PSUs are golden and working without any issue for monts. However my RM1000 gave up after 2 hours.
If you google for RM1000 PSUs, you find tons of complains. Issues are mainly caused by RM1000 too passive fan profile and they tend to overheat and fry.

The rig was failing all the time (rebooting) as soon as the fans started to go over 70%.
After a lot of trials, we went to the conclusion that if we use 1x powered riser connected to a molex then it will always fail.

We tried with 2 Lepa 1600 and we had the same problem. I replaced by a Corsair, and all went well.
I'm using the Lepa with 16x non powered risers and all is fine.

I may have done something wrong, but my conclusion is that the Lepa 1600W cannot bring enough amp on its 5v line (I know, sounds dubious)

So in all of your tests, you may have been using a faulty (arguably DOA, if new) PSU. It's hard to draw any valid conclusions from this if n=1

In fact, n=2. I wrote I tried with two different PSUs for the same result.
As everyone tends to say this is a good PSU, I'm totally ready to take the blame on some error of mine, or of a bad coincidence of faulty units.

I heard about them, but I couldn't source them easily.
Noctua are 1200 rpm ; are the Typhoons really more effective ?
