After I have a working board with favorable test results. I've been tied up with manufacturing Compacs and PSU boards the last two weeks so I've only just started on the pod prototype. Today I hope to finish up the pick-and-place program and get most of a board assembled. Firmware will have to wait until after the holiday but I have enough tools to manually test hashing and power. If that's good, and Novak can get some base-functionality firmware and cgminer driver proven, then we'll start taking in orders.

I can wait till when ever , I 'm waiting and hoping more you can get a nice supply of chips at a nice price for the zero broads and OFC I want a few Pods  Smiley .



not asking when just saying ty for doing it .

Thats great.

I don't know if you will still take in the boards i have, when we're able to take orders, but i'm wondering, does anybody know where in Canada i could get the anti static packaging bag to put the blades in? An online retailer in Canada would work too or a really cheap on in the US too?

While i only have the 2 S5 blades, i also have 14 S1 Blades and 12 AsicMiner Tube Blades. So i'll need more packaging than i have already.

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?

Honestly, wrapping it in foil would protect just as well.

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.

what is this "brake pedal" you speak of?

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.

Thanks, i learned something tonight. Smiley

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..

 The primary idea of anti-static bags is that the bag is conductive.

 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.
