I have one, waiting to buy my 2nd
S9s are really good
theoretically, how many S9's could you run off of one router? im thinking about buying like 12 if this one works out.
would i need to upgrade my home isp to business bandwidth? probably right?
they dont use much bandwidth
The problem is noise and power
Each one sounds like a small vacuum
yea 60 decibles running wide open. its not an issue, gonna keep em in the garage. good to know, thx. i wanna hook a buncha these things up.
they use a lot of power
yea i figured operation cost at $1440/yr
my friend has a bunch of avalonminer 741
each use $50/mo of electricity
how do those compare to the S9s?
not as good
they are half the price
he bulk ordered $40-50k of them
he couldnt get his hands on that many s9s
i searched for a few hrs last night trying to find like a power mining rig and couldnt find one. the daughter said the S9 was op. and yea, the next batch they're shipping out on the S9 i ordered is in January. apparently they are behind on production/demand.
my friend runs his bitcoin miners in a warehouse since it was too noisy for garage/basement
i might go all in on the mining thing soon too, the profit is there. i just want to see one of these things work before i do.
they take up something like 1000W each I think?
thats gonna trip a 15 amp home circuit with 2 of them connected
is crypto currency mining even worth the electricity it uses anymore?
my friend has a bunch of avalonminer 741s
they use $50 of electricity a month but generate about $210
so $160 net a month
And hes got a bunch
I have one in my basement, idk what circuit I could afford to plug it into
maybe our spare bedroom
I keep mine at the north pole because they run so hot, if they get frozen and stop operating I usually set mine on fire and it does the trick
just like new
