Thanks! Uline also had similar MOQ. However your search led me to smaller amount of the same thing. I think this will do for all the hashboard for now. Much higher priced per bag but i don't really want to fork over 100$ for a thousand xD

http://www.amazon.ca/50pcs-Shield-Anti-Static-Shielding-180mmx250mm/dp/B00TX2SRQA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1448235197&sr=8-3&keywords=Anti-Static+bag

Will probably be a tight fit for the long S5 one, but will probably be okay.

Meanwhile i have 8 spare Zeus Thunder X3/Falcon Hashboard, i dont suppose those hold salvageable value?

I did not know that... xD You're saying i can wrap the PCB's in aluminium foil and it will be protected? I was thinking using something conductive to wrap them in would not be a good idea.

And no interest in Zeus X3/Falcon Hashboard for salvage? I'm not sure which components has value to you.

Nothing's actually spec'd for chip height, but the chip area is based on the Freezer7's footprint. I have standard 115x mounting holes and I have holes to mount the Freezer7 directly without requiring its plastic bracket. Any standard Intel cooler will probably have to be modified for height, which probably just means cutting some plastic or yanking out those clips and using screws.

Buying the cooler has always been only an option. "you can even leave the cooler off so people can use their own" is the default.

Ill take two pods one with the freezer and one no HSF please

Actually, the point of antistatic bags is they are conductive. Static happens when a charge builds up on nonconductive surfaces so they can't dissipate naturally and wait for something conductive to shunt them, sometimes destructively. Static bags aren't as conductive as aluminum foil, but they do have a better tensile strength and are easy to seal against humidity.

No all the S1's work. (But the trade in values will probably be worth it, since they are my most inefficient miners now) Most of the Tubes board work well, 2 not, 3 poorly. And the two S5 boards are dead.

Don't care at all about the A4 (scrypt, but y'all knew that) though I've been wanting to get my greasty mitts on some A3 for a while now.

wasn't  sure if you knew the A4 was  updated, May be soon we will  see something for the A3, i know you  want A3 chips and not A4  but some thing is up, if that was posted on the 17 th by  Innosilicon, we may see some thing on A3 stuff, soon, thu. i couldn't find anything for the A3 .

found this on the A3

 http://cryptomining-blog.com/6261-innosilicon-a4-dominator-scrypt-asics-might-be-coming-soon/

 is also working on new A3 chips for SHA-256 that apparently offer less than 0.2 Watt per GHS, that's gonna top them all if it's less then 0.2 ghs, .1 something wide.

Yeah they mentioned the A3 rollout would coincide with A4. I forgot to say "thanks for the heads-up" because it is good information.

This got me thu  if you pay 1.5 mill well it explains it self

 Anyone who commits $1.5 million to this partnership will get to share our ASIC production masks or purchase miners at cost for your mining farms


you still pay for the miners man they better be cheap, i mean cheap if, i was to hand over 1.5 mil for something like that i expect some kind of free miners down the road not free i paid for them by doing  that, it  takes guts to go there and do that.
 if some one else is helping foot the bill and puts large a mounts of cash into it and they want to charge more, kiss your ass goodbye.!!!


any way that's why I'm glad some one like you is here,I do hope you get some of these nice chips we keep seeing and reading about. I know you want nothing to do with that mess etc.

so, no release date, weasel words, big numbers claimed and this, "buy in partnership of $1.5M?" ah yeah, we are all rich and pay for the fabrication...

no information on availability of the chips or the "miner" that’s available "today"..

if you haven't emailed/PM'ed these guys sidehack, care for me to? I will act as my own party though (don't want you to cop shit from me).

and yeah, I realise I'm talking about the A4 not the A3.. if the A3 is even worth it..

 As long as you don't have a battery on the board, and you don't get torn pieces of foil in the board somewhere vital, aluminum foil should work fine.

From what I understand they are talking about big IPO money like the Spondoolies SP50 yeah it will exist ..but in the manner of going to their IPO inverstors and big data hall first.

Just saying that is what it looks like to me. This is also true imho for the Alcheminer II project announcement on www.litecointalk.org

Hope I'm wrong, but I'm afraid Home mining is dead. (at least at my 13c kwh price that is in the USA) Sad

Old Style Legacy Plug & Play BBS System. Get it from www.synchro.net. Updated 1/1/19. It also works with Windows 10 and allows 16 bit DOS game doors on the same Win 10 Machine! Five Minute Install! Look it over uninstalls just as fast! Freeware! Full BBS System! It is a frigging hoot!:)

Sadly you  might be right they are gonna charge 4 or 5k for those miners to the public il bet and half that to the guys who invest that 1.5 mill haha and call that cost and cost is polly what tops 200 usd  or a tad more if that I'm being nice it's polly below 100 per miner to make one  , one day i some how see any miner to the public going for 4 or 5 k new, i got a feeling , hope im wrong and it won't be based off btc either like they claim now .I saw that Alcheminer II project announcement but it seems the A4 might top it the Alcheminer II price might be better . but with A4 there is some kind of  upgrade that gonna happen we can reuse the old Zeus miner stuff I think they were talking the same with the A3, so who knows maybe they will be nice to home user. time will tell .one other thing with PC when i sold them and made them, you all most never could buy direct you had to go thu some third party whole sale house for oem parts which is  all  any of it is, like ingrammicro http://www.ingrammicro.com/IMD_WASWeb/jsp/login/corporate.jsp i was really supersized when bitmain stopped making us buy two or three per buy .

and invert er got all the samples and kits  at no cost as well as some of the finished product but i guess that all changed they want you to foot the bill  then expect you to pay for the product no samples no kits etc , even if you give them a billion  . the way that comment they made sounded so no so called freebie not that it is free to start with, it's not , but no cost to them but to every one else pays.

Diff ended up being a bit over 10% - kinda made up for the previous low ones, probably due to BitMain timing on shipping out new S7 various batches.

 The Alcheminer offering is actually a LOT friendlier to lower-level investors, lot of folks that can dig up $50k as opposed to those that can dig up $1.5 million.

 I also suspect that Innosilicon will be able to bring the A4 to market even without the external investors, the real question is would they WANT to give the A3?

yes i wrap in aluminum foil all the time for storage in my parts box

i see people place  mobos run on antistatic bags, dont do that its conductive to a point
