200 $  less buy a brand new  S5 you know works with great support.

But it doesn't hash at 3.3 TH

I would be more concerned about this:

"The power socket is darkened, the previous owner used incorrect PSU I believe. It is fully functional, just a cosmetic blemish."

I saw that to but what stopped me was the price everything else i would need just to get it to run and then hope that it ran, i went by his ebay profile i would hope hes is as good as it appear. but I'm not buying it after i saw the price of one controller . I d be better off just buying another S5 and save some change. and this question the answer didn't seem right .


Q: How much power does this take?
A: They consume about 300W. Thank you for your interest in my auction!


ID say if it's a full cube like he says wouldn't it run at 1950 W  it shows in the spec he does  Processing Speed (GH/s):3300

He is selling one fully functional cube (20% of a Neptune), not a full Neptune.

I know this an old topic, but I cannot find much information on these. With free electricity  what is a good price to pay for 5 cubes and the controller board?

They are fire hazards and were built very badly. They will ruin your PSU. I literally had one go up in flames a few months back. Not safe for home use. If you decide you must have one, underclock it a ton to try to avoid the issues. KNC was the worst of the worst bitcoin miner manufacturers, total scam artists. They took people's money, gave them shit products very late and then used to the money to build their own mine with custom miners in Sweden. Crooks.

Doesn't KNC use a stupid controller system that are insanely expensive to get your hands on to make sure your miners work?

The only miners I trust are antminers. I wouldn't even bother looking at any knc products on eBay..  Why don't you get an S5?

To be fair there a couple of trustworthy miners, including Avalon, spondoolies and others.

I suppose I'm a little biased.  I never had problems with the antminers that I've purchased.  I almost bought a spondoolies sp20 last month but I'm just hesitant when it comes to trying products that I've never used before

Were good in my opinion .

Avalon 6 and 4.1 were good

And sp-tech sp20 was good.

The rocker box 110 watt  was decent

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

The BFL monarchs were good too, at least the ones I previously had.

Although the company in general is another story

Just run them at 400MHz or less and they'll be fine and reliable. If you run them at 350 MHz you can even replace the 140mm fans with 1000 RPM silent models and use it to warm your room this winter.

Here is an image of my silent 500W space heater. I removed the fan grills and used 1000 RPM fans and clock them at 375 MHz, resulting in slightly over 1 TH/s. I used extra controllers from old KnC Jupiters so that I can spread them around the house in clusters of 2 cubes.

The space heater design sounds awesome... Something I might consider with one of these, I wouldn't run one at full clock but they might as well be used

Worthwhile as space heaters if you already have them, if not get something newer and SAFER.

I'm no longer legendary just in my own mind!
