0a) What to Expect (top)
HashCoins' Apollo utilises two Golden Nonce ASICs within a high end PC case. Sealed watercooling loops remove heat to the internal radiators, while a
1250W PSU provides power. No controller is provided.

Chips2x Golden Nonce
Hashrate~1100GH
Rated Voltage12V
Rated Current96A
Power.Consumption~1150W

 

      

      
 

0b) What You Need (top)
In addition to a host windows PC or Raspberry Pi, you will need some accessories to get started.


                             Click your flag to find everything you need to get started at Amazon!             
                    
                                         


1) Powering (top)
Apollo's come with a 1250W Chieftec Navitas GPM-1250C PSU in a standard ATX formfactor. It features over 90% efficiency and 1250W on its single 12V
rail. If you wish to replace it, 6 PCI-E 6 pin connectors are required. Power is controlled with the PSU switch on the back and not the case's power button.

      
 

2) Cooling (top)
Each ASIC is cooling by a self contained Corsair H80i High Performance watercooling kit. The pump is integrated into the copper waterblock which pumps
coolant up to the aluminium finned radiators mounted in the top of the case. Two 120mm Corsair SP120L PWM fans cool each 120mm radiator while
blowing air down and over the hashing boards. Two 120mm red LED Corsair fans bring in fresh air from the front of the case while a further 120mm Corsair
fan exhausts warm air out the back.

Noise levels are reasonable at normal ambient temperatures as all fans are PWM controlled and react to temperature conditions. It is noteworthy that the
unit may struggle to reach 1.1TH in  high ambient conditions (30C+).

 

      

      
 
      
 



3) Case (top)
The Apollo's case is a repurposed Corsair 230T, which works remarkably well. A custom metal plate creates mounting points for the PCBs while another
board fills the I/O slot with the USB port. External dimensions of the case are 505 x 210 x 440mm.

      

      

      

      


4) Configuration (top)
The Apollo can be run on any CGMiner based device. A Windows based PC is recommended although a similar process can be applied on a Raspberry Pi.

Wiring:
  • Plug in the USB cable from the Apollo to your computer.
  • Plug in the power supply into the mains.
  • Power on the power supply using its switch at the back.

Configuration:
  • Download the latest version of CGMiner and Zadig.
  • Extract, and run the zadig application.
  • Select "M1 Module" and then click "Replace Driver". You only have to do this once per computer.
  • Create a new file in notepad and enter pool information as below. Save it as a .bat in the same folder as CGMiner.
  • Run the bat file to start mining.

Antpool
Code:
cgminer.exe -o stratum.antpool.com:3333 -u dogie_Apollo -p 123
BTCGuild
Code:
cgminer.exe -o stratum.btcguild.com:3333 -u dogie_Apollo -p 123
GHash IO
Code:
cgminer.exe -o us1.ghash.io:3333 -u dogie.Apollo -p 123




5) Troubleshooting (top)
TBD as problems arise.

Looks very nice.  Good job on guide.  

Will you be testing their Scrypt or Zeus units?

Probably a module from Zeus to prove the numbers and yes to Ares Scrypt.

h/w manufacturers seem to be going backwards in terms of efficiency.
Had these specifications actually been shipped out last year by Hashfail they would have been worth having.
IMHO this rig is an entire year late. I hope they don't have masses of them in stock.  Undecided

Certainly most if not all fabricators are zero sum game now.

These units are at the bottom of the pile.

There's a lot of non bitcoin related value in this unit which makes it a different value proposition. $150 in the PSU, $125x2 in the watercooling, $70 in the case etc.
