Good to know, thanks for the pointers! I'll definitely look into setting up a new circuit when I get to the new place!  Cheesy

Can we get actual proper specs on the included PSU?

Is this close?

1400w or 116.66A continuous 12v output? Assuming 88% efficiency, that should read as about 1591w at the wall if the miner is consuming 1400w DC correct? Who manufactures the PSU? I get a little nervous when I read "custom PSU".

It's 1400w at the wall.

No, I'm pretty sure the PSU can output 1400W DC. PSUs are never rated with what they draw at the wall.

Everyone has a different argument, but at the end of the day it really should boil down to ROI.

And compared to other investments in the world, 6 months to make all your money back (and potentially a lot more if you hold your BTC), is a pretty good investment if you ask me.

Stupid, even if you somehow, get ROI in 6 months, you will have negative cash flow after that. Do you know what that means? (since you seems to understand ...... investments and all)

And if you count on BTC price, then buying BTC now with it in your hand.... you wont lose opportunity in case BTC price jumps in less than 6 months.



However, all of these is moot because you WILL NOT have ROI with S4s. We're talking about ROI btc here.

What is the hashrate? It's advertised as 1380w at the wall at 2000GH/s.

* Hash Rate: 2,000GH/s guaranteed
* Power Efficiency: 0.69Watt/GH/s at the wall

200MHz/0.0725v(stock): 2010GH/s @ 1305w = 0.65Watt/GH/s

225MHz/0.0725v: 2243GH/s @ 1505w = 0.67Watt/GH/s

That's using Eligius. Nicehash doesn't work for shit, was only getting about 1650GH while overclocked. I'll post more as I test, likely tomorrow.

Edit: Seems like Eligius' stats are messed up? Hashrate average over the last 256 seconds is only 48GH/s

Edit 2: I'm trying to find a pool that reports hashrate properly, as Eligius isn't. For some reason the miner won't connect to BTCGuild...  Huh Pool is showing up as dead.

It seems because you can't do something you assume other people can not. There are plenty of people who can ROI. Those with free power, those who know how to trade, and those who know how to mine and sell.

I'm sure if you spent as much time doing any of those things as you do trolling on these forums, you'd earn some bitcoins too.

eligius is fine for me right now.

thats a nice 10% overclock, any signs its too much for the psu? 1505W at the wall with ~89% efficiency near peak power = 1350W from the PSU

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461

Really? I'll try switching back to Eligius then.

PSU seems to be handling it just fine. I cranked the voltage up a bit a while ago to see how it affected consumption, and drew as much as 1640w (over 1400w DC) at the wall before backing down. I don't feel like being the guinea pig to find out if this thing has OCP or not.

Running at 225MHz:

I don't get it, Eligius just won't report the hashrate properly.

Do these come with rack mount ears / brackets?

I'll let you know.

S4s ship with ears.

Just took delivery of my S4. Cost an extra $220 at the door for customs in Canada.

Nice looking box, kill-a-watt is reading 1308w on 240v.

Going to have to reverse the fans as the airflow won't work for my setup.

Why wouldn't you just turn the box round Cheesy

I just got mine yesterday and was surprised how fast it shipped (2 days)
I am have trouble getting my hashrate up to 2 TB currently

I first tried eligius and couldn't get it above 250 G/h..
http://i.imgur.com/4x9TLKS.jpg?1

Then i settled with Nicehash for the night and got a average hash of 1.4 T/H
http://i.imgur.com/Xlp7O1f.jpg?1

Currently set on BTC guild for the last hour with a average of 1.6 T/h
http://i.imgur.com/4FA4hWe.jpg?1

I'll post more of the miner stats when I get home; frustrating I can't get the promised speed of 2 T/H.  My first guess is the CG miner is out of date.
