    yeah but he HAS current ASIC's at current prices?.. the curent set of ASIC's has been out for quite a number of months now (4-5?) and we're about due for the next ones now.

    no matter if he's getting early access deals, he can't have better stuff than has been designed/taped out. (so at best some sorta 28nm device, if he's somehow managed to get them MONTHS pre-release)....

    The other argument would be... why would he spend that many millions on untested hardware?

    I'd put my money on cheap hydro too haha

    ED: i got gridseed 10 pack pricing finally.. a bit under $2400 AUD + post, but haven't settled on postage costs yet.

    ED: $175/10 pack as they're 10kg (huge heatsinks?), but with a zero GST invoice.

    The stock coolers are coming with them do they cool the MOSFET any better? I will have a box fan on them moving a lot of air and hopefully the heat wave has passed by next week when I will likely have the rig setup.

    Brother's reference 290x in his gaming PC has died after like 4 days of mining. Rofl :thumbup: Luckily he bought it locally so has warranty, but still. Dunno why the noob got a ref card, it was the most ridiculously loud card I have ever heard.

    It looks like AIR will be listed on Poloniex soon, still waiting for a confirmed date though.

    Current estimated opportunity price at 0.00281 BTC/AIR. Even at half that price it's looking like a pretty good return.

    Reference coolers are tragically loud, even after undervolting to the max. Great for a case with poor airflow, but horrible for a case with good airflow because they're just so inefficient. Let me guess, he was letting it run at 100c 24/7?

    I REGRET EVERYTHING ABOUT MINING OTHER SHITTYCOINS NUUUU

    .00281 would be ridiculously amazing... and set to rise over time too -_-.. i'm on <100 a day now :(

    on a positive note.. blackcoin has risen to basically what i paid for them, yay!

    you can't even run them 100c.. they top out at 95 and self throttle

    so faulty card more than anything. mine won't go past 94-95 lol.

    That's what I was thinking - is it worth switching back to AIR now?

    I'm back on it, stopped mining zeit (the devs seem pretty committed, so i'm expecting more than 1 satoshi prices eventually), trying to offload hex, get black back to BTC for when AIR hits an exchange.

    if even half their expectation is reality, it's the most profitable coin to mine by a longshot.

    OTOH i want back into doge.. they hit 105 satoshi, were at 120 for a while.. but the big update seems to have them on the rise again, back to 144!

    How many people kept mining AIR before?

    Expected exchange rate and actual exchange rate will be interesting to see how this pans out.

    I have 800 at the moment from mining it in the first blocks, might mine a bit more , clevermining btc rate is terrible right now so might as well take a chance.

    I did a three days around the time it started, a day earlier this week and have pointed my miners back today following the news that it would be on exchange tomorrow.

    I noticed your name appearing back on air.pitythepool.com r3s :thumbup:

    I've only got 260 to show for my efforts.

    a dogecoin is like 1/1,000 of a USD. How long does it take to make a dodgecoin on a common gpu?

    Hash rate is based on your hardware. What have you got that you intend to mine with?

    You need know know how much power your miner takes while running and what your rate is set at, mine is $0.27/KwH.
