Not really. Mine are all lined up so the lights play off adjacent sticks and heatsinks all in a row. That is a pretty fancy rig you got there though.

Cool, quiet and up to 1TH pod miner, on sale now!

Also, mostly because I can, I just rolled all nine sticks up to around 665mV and 225MHz (12.375GH) for about 111GH total (1.036 AM Blade backplanes) and since it's fairly monolithic at this point I'm gonna take it home and run it in the AC until Monday morning. I've also got a bit better fan on it (than the one stolen out of an old AM Cube).

And may I say, when cgminer fires up and enumerates all them sticks in order, one at a time, and then BAM starts mining on all of them simultaneously, the lights are oh so pretty. Makes me wish I had a longer hub so I could run all 11 functional sticks together and get slightly more sex appeal out of it. In any case it's really cool to know that I'm the only guy in the world that's actually seen what I'm looking at right now. Another month or six weeks and some of y'all can have the same experience but right now it's MINE ALL MINE and I'm gonna relish it.

Anyway, it's running on the Pi (Minera 5 or something) and the pools are all set up so it should auto-start and default to the 1BURGER if the Pi trips out and restarts.


Additionally, it's past Friday. We've heard from the overdue-invoice guys that "the check is in the mail" but I haven't seen it yet. This means I need to investigate the path of short-term loans to field the rest of the chip order that I wanted to have paid for TWO WEEKS AGO. Looks like right now I am 10BTC short. Anyone interested in helping meet that need on a one- to two-week payback period, PM and we can get this taken care of.

I pm'd you  a few minutes ago on this.

Sweet!!  Grin

So is that a calibrated piece of dimensional spruce? LOL
Looks alot like our test bench.

Don't see a trimmer pot for Vcore, course then my eye sight ain't so good.
Doing that in S/W?

Think I'd send one on over to Germany, and pass the addiction on into Europe.

Can't wait to see what ya' do with the 18 chip version.

Still in for 2 of the sticks when you get a round-2-it.


the bottom corner appears to have a pot like mine did:

>100GH out of some usb sticks, I love it!

For fun I have 4 stick miners, but only 8GH total.  I see an upgrade in my future...

Yeah one of these would do 8GH just about off stock USB power. I'm digging it so far. Hopefully this coming week I can find some time to start 18-board testing, but I have a lot of manufacturing to do as well.

Well folks, looks like the need is met. I'm waiting to hear back from Bitmain for a last confirmation before sending coin across to finalize the sale. Hopefully that gets done in the next day. Monday I'll be shipping out the eight final-prototype sticks to the test guys, and once most of them have gotten a chance to play with 'em and post opinions we'll get to work.

But right now it's bedtime. Thanks everyone.

Let me know when and where to order one. I really like my SP20, but it's got all the sex appeal of a very long toaster.

Hey watch it.....I don't make 'eye contact' with my KNC Titan(s) in the Basement.......they will take ANY opportunity to
to try and 'brick' themselves' into a Toaster or the sweet release of 'doorstop/spaceheaters'........so I envy you Smiley

(hope your Sp20 does not get negative vibes off of you...it is bad...the Titan(s) can sense my fear........help me!) Sad

My toaster is pretty shiny. Also a double-wall wide four-slot with dual digital timers, click-lock pull-out crumb trays and a "bagle" button that only heats the inside elements (which is great for buns too). Be better if it were six-slice (I really like toast) but you know, whatever it's still pretty great.

Also looks like the Pi locked up on me after a while. All lights were on (no network activity, just solid LEDs), unresponsive on SSH and cgminer wasn't running. Power cycle brought it right back. I'm not too familiar with 'em, really, but is there any kind of watchdog timer to automatically reboot should that happen again? Other than that huccup, the 225MHz sticks have been running great. I should probably have been more thorough with core voltage testing (I basically raised it until I saw no errors in a two-minute sample) because errors are still higher than I'd like (HW 365, A 180K) but actually it's not terrible for what's being done.

do you have a b   pi with the big sdcard  ?

they run pretty well if you have a quality sdcard.

if you are have a model using a micro card B+ and model B 2 the micro card can overheat.

this sdcard linked is really good.  for the model b pi

as for toaster I have white plastic  with 2 big wide long slots.  (sounds a little bit dirty )  but makes good toast.

the pi's don't have any watchdog, they are just cpu+gpu+ram with io, in my little workshop when my boss setup a pi to be a webserver, he made one with reset/power and RTC and LCD output, iirc it did reset itself when it didn't respond on the I2C when it tried to pull info for the LCD

then he switched it out for a simple desktop on the 2nd revision.
