My board has been in UK customs now for eight days  Angry  When there supposed to deliver it within 48hrs of it landing in the UK.  I have emailed Royal Mail with the tracking number to find out what's going on.  Last time the board arrived much quicker.

Sorry to hear that Matt,

The last package I sent to U.K. cleared customs in one day, however that package was to London.

If there is anything I can do to help let me know, they probably just picked it as a package to open and inspect which they do at random and have not gotten around to processing it yet.

Thanks
Tom

Hey Tom, What's your current approximate wait time from order to shipping? Also, what's the status of the firmware supporting the 1gh/s (Tricone) bitstream?

I'm looking forward to ordering a quad when I return from a business trip, looks like a fantastic product!

It's probably at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GCHQ headquarters in Cheltenham right now, where they marvel at its SHA-bruteforcing ability and ponder whether it should be deemed "munitions" according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ITAR...

It really depends on the quantity you order, most people who order right now will receive the unit within 2-4 weeks, I have a production run ending at the end of next week and that will knock out a lot of the people who have been waiting.

As far as the tricone Bitstream it is something that we are currently working on, I hope to meet with Eldentyrell next week to take it to the next level.

Thanks for your interest in the ModMiner Quad and if you have futher questions please feel free to email me at tom@btcfpga.com

Sounds good! Just made an order for one Quad. I was curious. How much power does the board need for all 4 daughter cards?  I have a wall wart that outputs power to a molex connector 12V @ 2A and 5V @ 2A. Would a power supply with these specs be enough? It would just be smaller than using the ATX PSU I have set aside for it.

To quote the website:
Quote
It features up to 4 Spartan-6 LX150 FPGA Chips that are Capable of doing up to 210Mhash each at 10 watts

For a total Unit Speed & Efficiency of 800+mhash @ only 40 watts

12V * 2A = 24 Watts

You'd might be fine with 2 cards, but you're nowhere near the complete quad

You will need 10watts of available power for each FPGA chip or as you put it "daughter card"

a full ModMiner Quad uses 40watts.

We sell Dynex 400watt PSU's on our website for $30

this has molex connections for 5 units which it will easily power but if you wanted to modify it and add more molex connections to some of the other rails you could get away with 9-10 ModMiner Quads per PSU.

I'm planing to buy one Mod miner for my cluster Smiley
I registered on your website and I'm wondering where I can see euro prices?

Is the shipping charger for Germany really 30€?

Hi

Because of issues with other currencies and my credit card processors, I have removed the ability to change the currency, I would google for a currency calculator to find out how much it is.

yes I charge a flat rate of $30 shipping to everyone, sometimes it cost me less sometimes it cost me more but it all evens out in the end Smiley

For Germany I use DHL International express - its much better than USPS in your country.

Thanks

Tom

I have a large production run ending at the end of this week and will be preparing units for shipment over the weekend, to ship early in the week. Many tracking numbers will be sent out on monday or tuesday so check your email!

Post edited. The MMQ gang and i have worked out a plan for my delayed units.

On a side note, Tom has been very responsive to my emails and tech help. Even with the delays they are still much better than BFL could aspire to be.

 I encourage anyone who is thinking about ordering to read our TOS and also if you purchase through Google Checkout read our TOS for Google Checkout.

Unless you request a refund within a couple of days of ordering or your order is small enough it's very difficult to make a large refund because the money is already spent on ordering parts.

Of course if for some reason I cannot deliver your order you would be refunded.

FWIW: I ordered 4 Mmod miner quads on June 30th and received them on July 1st. It was a little past the 4 week mark but they did arrive here, the modminers are working well and the tech support has been really helpful as well. I wouldent worry about not receiving what you ordered it will get there it just takes a little time

Lol, I think you meant to say May 30th, but thanks for the feedback anyways!

Also just to note there are many people who will be receiving orders next week after only waiting 2 weeks. It has taken me some time to get caught up but things are starting to move a lot faster now that I have a new domestic supplier of the FPGA chips that can supply the XC6SLX150-3FGG484C chips that I need at a price point that works for me. Typically lead times on FPGA orders from China can take up to 6 weeks and due to numerous reasons they were only trickling in, in very small quantities - I would order 200 chips and I would get 40 here 70 a week later etc etc, now my new supplier is based in the USA and does overnight shipping. I currently bought out all the stock they had but they are getting stock filled back up next week so all is good Smiley

People have been requesting a RUSH service for the ModMiner quad and I have worked out an arrangement with my assembly house that will allow people who dont mind spending extra money to get their units in 3-5 days guaranteed, please understand I am not just asking for extra money to put you in the front of the line. It does not work like that, in fact none of the added price goes to me at all I am not making any additional profit from these orders- RUSH orders get their own production run separate from my regular and sanely priced production runs. The increased price goes entirely to the assembly house for their 48 hour rush service and for them to supply the parts which is more expensive but allows this kind of lead time to happen.

The units are actually built in 48 hours, and this is guaranteed to me from the assembly house so I am offering a full refund + a free ModMiner Quad in my guarantee that your five units will be shipped in 3-5 business days from the date of your order.

You can order from this link below and I encourage you to read all the information about this service in our post or on our website

http://www.btcfpga.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=57



48 HOUR EXPRESS RUSH MODMINER QUAD ORDER (5 UNIT MINIMUM) GUARANTEED TO BE SHIPPED IN 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS!

ALL orders will be shipped via USPS Express Mail Overnight or USPS Express Mail International

 

We are now offering exclusive RUSH service on the ModMiner Quad for those who just cant wait!

There is a minimum of a 5 unit order to be able to take advantage of the RUSH service.

 

Its  a Complete Turn Key Kit to get 5 ModMiners (4 gH/s) of Highly Efficient Bitcoin Mining Power up and running in about 5 days,

It includes a stand alone Power Supply to power the ModMiner Quads, All it needs is a computer to plug into and your ready to go!

 

Includes:

5 x Fully Populated ModMiner Quad FPGA Bitcoin Mining units

 - including 20 Spartan-6 LX150 FPGA Chips w/ Heatsinks & Fan

    (4 gH/s in Bitcoin Mining Power!)

5 x mini USB Cables

1 x Dynex 400 Watt Stand Alone PSU for power

1 x Instruction Manual

 
Price: $7924.95
Price if customer provides FPGA chips: $3624.95
(shipping count-down does not start until FPGA chips have been received)
 

 

What is it?

We have a special arrangement with our assembly house to provide orders of at least 5 ModMiner quads to customers who are willing to pay extra for the RUSH service.

 

Why so much money?

The increase in price does not increase my profits at all, the increase in price all goes to the assembly house for parts and labor of this rush service.

Our assembly house offers a 48 hour assembly service which is quite a bit more expensive than the service I use for my typical production runs and they also provide all the parts for the build which although is more expensive it enables a much faster lead time.

 

How does it work?

As soon as your order is placed and payment is confirmed, your order starts at the assembly house for a gauranteed 48 hour build.

On the 2nd or 3rd day the units are shipped to me where I complete the process and get them ready for the customer, On the 3rd or 4th days your 5 units are shipped to you via express mail which for US customers is overnight.

 

What happens if its late?

This is a guaranteed service, if your units are not shipped to you in 3-5 business days you are entitled to a FULL REFUND and a FREE ModMiner Quad !

4GH/s for almost 8 grand? At current price and difficulty, it'd take you 16 months to pay it back!

yes the rush service,  its extremely expensive theres no doubt about it, a couple of customers have requested a rush service like this because it is guaranteed in 3-5 days.

The 48 hour assembly costs at the manufacturer are astronomical as well as the price for them to supply the FPGA chips.

This is something for a customer who does not care about the price and just wants to get the units right away.

edit: if someone wanted the rush service and wanted to supply their own FPGA chips, I could knock the price down about $4300.00

I have revised the price in the case of someone who may want to supply their own FPGA chips:

Price: $7924.95
Price if customer provides FPGA chips: $3624.95
(shipping count-down does not start until FPGA chips have been received)

Tom,

   thank you for the information you sent me recently in eMail. I appreciated your quick response (on a sunday),

   I have another question and this is the best place to ask it.

   Others have asked this but I hadn't seen a reply from you in those threads.

   Be it 2 months, 6 months or a year, eventually it will cost more in electricity than can be earned  (assuming $10USD value of BTC)

   Aside from password cracking. Have you identified other uses for the ModMiner quad?

 Have you identified other uses for the ModMiner quad?

I have actually had people buy these already for uses other than with Bitcoin mining, mostly for their own hobbyist/academic uses. Basically with this configuration you could change the firmware and make it do pretty much anything you wanted, anything that any other FPGA could do. It could certainly act as a open FPGA development platform for whatever, the sky's the limit. The ModMiner quad also has a resale value outside of the Bitcoin world for these purposes or just for the value of the four Spartan-6 XC6SLX150-2FGG484C FPGA Chips themselves as they do have a resell value.

One interesting thing I have been reading about is they are bringing OpenCL to FPGA in the near future which opens up a lot more possibilities.

As far as heating with it - that would not work very well, unlike GPU's FPGA's do not put off a lot of heat Tongue
