miner, ran outta space in the title but yes sir, I saw a miner at 43 years of age and my interest in this industry has exploded. I was dead from years of telling people they are not correcting the same mistakes I have been telling them about every year for 20 years.

So, here I am a n00b. I like it.
I was a regular contributor at Overclockers.net in the early 2000s and while I am getting to this party very late, oh there is so much more to be done. I came to that scene when we were overclocking and water cooling our GPUs, and had been doing CPUs since they were created, right?
I am one of the first people to accidentally glue the processor in the socket with sealant for the cooling block insulating material, no sweating heh.

soon TM
been around for a long time huh? Yes, it has.

As I said, I am excited to see what is happening on the techno front in this community. *F* the scams for a minute, they are always gonna be there, but I am excited about what you are teaching me, and thank you.

Point me to the right places, I know how to UTFSE but I have to sit very close with my eyes almost ON the 48" monitor; sometimes I miss a bit of text ;*&

I bought the S4, liked the form factor, liked it coming with a PSU, and checked it was B2 with the corrected PSU. It is a loud summabich which I love. The white noise is part of what has kept me sane for twenty years.
I want to purchase another to put in it for OC. I understand the risks with warranty and the fact they claim 10%. Anything else I should worry about?
What about the amount of voltage and frequency, what have people been using? I can not find crap on the net, and I have UTFSE!
I understand most are not Ocing, and it is probably a few hobbyists, but come on, I have not found anything consistent.
What PSU should I buy. Money is important, but I buy the right component. I know what being cheap does for us all, I want to buy smart. Something say I am tired of playing with Ocing the S4 in a week, now I buy two SP20s used. Or 3, how does it play in?

Speaking of that, I want to buy my next unit within 7 days. I am researching hard. 3 or 4 S5s from BITMAIN, or 2, or go spoon? The temps tell me spoon. Remember noise does not matter to me, it is purely the best bang for the buck.

I am not afraid of used, I simply do not want to buy used and it cost me more to run it in power than they make in coin.

I am with BTCguild, seemed liked a solid spot. I am always on the lookout for a family spot to plant roots, but at the same time you have to be true to yourself and if there is somewhere else which is going to make a difference to me feeding the kiddos, please tell me about it.


Thanks for entertaining my post, I hope I get to know many of you as I have already started picking things up. - Peace

Transaction fees go to the pools and the pools decide to pay them to the miners. Anything else, including off-chain solutions are stealing and not the way Bitcoin was intended to function.
Make the block size set by the pool. Pool = miners and they get the choice.

The SP20 is a great piece of gear.  You can find anything you want in this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=872014.0

dude .  mining with current gear   is not about overclock.

I know drag.  I did have the world's fastest mac mini's in 2008, 2009, 2010 according to geekbench and xbench. So I know the joy of overclocked gear.


There is a goal for you to shoot at worlds best watts per gh.

the sp20 can get into and around .45 watts a gh from www.spondoolies.com

the new s-5 can do ? from www.bitmaintech.com

  Although I believe it may give  .42 watts a gh    with an undervolted psu .


    Now if you do not want to make money and are willing to tear your gear up add better heatsinks for cooling,
 I suppose you could try to overclock.


I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

I hear you.
I have a power supply 0 - 12v, 45A max, all sorts of buttons and fun things.
I see what you are saying about undervolting versus Ocing and thanks for the heads up too.

I also see this is a rough time to get involved but it looks fun. My goal with stuff like this is usually to have fun. I'll waste power one way or the other. Halve? What oh it cut the number of coins in half, ok but I just pulled my miner out of mineral oil so bite me Smiley Always fun stuff to do with anything people want to run a certain way.
No fan? Completely passive?
