Received 2x BFL Singles today (ordered June 2012).

Was a bit of a pleasant surprise, as I was only expecting one.  (double-checked the order, I paid for two, just forgot)


I wouldn't exactly expect them to screw devs, mods or business owners. Although 14 months can't exactly be called preferential treatment.  Undecided
I received my two singles a couple weeks back.  I'm not a dev, mod, or business owner.

SgtSpike, don't kid yourself. You've been here since the beginning and are very vocal and well respected. I'm sure you would be on the A List too. It doesn't suprise me that you got your delivery either. It will shock me if Garr gets his delivery and doesn't lose his spot in the queue.
Fair enough.  Another example, my father (who doesn't even have a name registered on any bitcoin-related forum) also received his two singles, about a week after I received mine.  His order was 6/24.


bfgminer worked out of the box on Fedora Linux.

One SC Single is happily mining away, seeing 55-60 GH as expected.

Another Single is not running currently, due to faulty BFL-supplied PSU.  Will test second unit tomorrow.


Only 55-60 oh well - that'll learn you Tongue
(My 2 are 61.5 and 62.5 ... cgminer 'out of the box' on Fedora 18 ... and now Xubuntu 11.04)
Dev fight!

Update: 2x working Singles (~60GH each), 2x dead BFL-supplied PSUs.

You can see an example of the dead PSU on the left side of this picture (the PSU is on the left, the miner on the right):

Had to purchase third party PSUs at Fry's, and fashion wires out of a child's toy, but the miners are happily mining.

Ok, now I know why they shipped them. They were mining with them and thought they were broken so they shipped them. Idiots, they should have just checked the power supplies! lol

I wonder how long those miners will last? Well, it doesn't matter if you bought the additional one year warranty.

Yeah I am not sure about this part either.  Makes me cringe. Smiley  Don't burn your house down, ok?

That's what I did -- but modern ATX often requires shorting a pin, to turn on the PSU.

So follow your wishes, don't burn your house down Wink

Or you could just call the manufacturer and tell them you received a defective product and would like a replacement.

There is very little current flowing through the signal line on a PSU - you won't be burning anything down by jumping it with a paper clip.

I usually take a sheathed wire with the ends exposed and use that to do the short.  It feels a bit safer than a paperclip to me, but it probably doesn't make any difference.

Yep, and it have two big advantages: it is isolated from occasional shorting and it can be made spring-loaded enough to not fall out from the ATX connector.
