    PinIdea ASIC X11 Miner DR-1 Hashrate 500MH/s @320w Weighs 4.5kg

    Bummer, but I guess since you got a video of it running it is working fine? Mine had loose screws as well. Which reminds me of something important for people to know if this is the first ASIC they bought. Always, always, check for loose screws when getting miners. I have ordered many ASIC's...

    PinIdea ASIC X11 Miner DR-1 Hashrate 500MH/s @320w Weighs 4.5kg

    Well I did not accomplish what I wanted to tonight but for those who are curious here is what the power draw looks like. 315 watts, very nice. I was hoping to have a minera image for other people done but I am not happy with it yet. It does not start the miner on boot for some reason and...

    OK, I could not wait so I swung by home during lunch. Got it running with minera, check it out. The dip in hashrate was when I restarted cgminer so I could enable xnsub but otherwise it is right around 500Mh/s for me. Good job pinidea, I am very happy with this. Also it is much quieter...

    Sorry, I can not do much with it yet, I am at work. But they packaged it well, it is double boxed, no damage or anything. I opened it up to make sure there were no loose screws rattling around.

    PinIdea ASIC X11 Miner DU-1 (USB Version Hashrate 9 MH/s , Releasing in Mid-May 2016)

    As you probably already expected I do have a question about them. What is the AMP or WATT draw of these? We took some measurements of that prototype you had but it sounded like you guys have improved the power draw of these quite a bit since that prototype. For running multiple of these it...

    OK, well soleo when we met in person I said I was not interested in USB devices but this might just change my mind.

    Yeah, it looks like Solarminer is right, it will be a lot longer before these arrive than Pinidea thought. Mine has not made it out of China yet and it has been 3 days already. Not a concern, I was just overly optimistic. Others ordering this may want to consider getting expedited shipping if...

    Ordered one as well. Soleo mentioned they are shipping them using SF Express. Anyone have experience with receiving packages shipped that way in the US, how does it get delivered? Never seen a SF delivery vehicle around my area so I assume they hand the package off to another delivery company...

    If you look at the first post in the thread it has most of the information we know. The people above were not talking about this miner, they were talking about a different companies miner. This miner has only ever been quoted as costing 500 Dash or the equivalent in BTC, never in USD. People...

    This thread is for Pinidea's miner, sold by Pinidea. They have not released anything yet. We are impatiently awaiting information. iBeLink sells the DM384M miner through dualminer.com. They have sold 1 batch so far and at some point will have another. There are a few other threads related...

    I think a couple of you are very lost, this is the thread for Pinidea's X11 miner. Soleo (Xinjiang) has been our primary contact for it and last I knew they were going to be shipped directly from China. You are probably wanting to be in one of the DM384M threads like this one...

    Thanks for the pictures, I know many of us have been impatiently awaiting them. From this I have two questions. Originally you had indicated these miners would use SPI however the Pi in the picture does not have anything plugged into the SPI port. Has the design switched to USB instead of...

    I chatted briefly with soleo and he indicated there is an additional few day delay. They are waiting for the cases and heatsinks. Soleo you should have someone grab a picture of the pcb's before the heatsinks are installed, would be fun to see some pictures.

    Bummer, so far with anyone I have helped updating the SD card has fixed the issue. If you are sure that you got the image written to an SD card and that new image still did not work then you might want to reach out directly to their support. You can email them at [email protected] for support.

    Yes but I strongly recommend not doing that as that is your only copy. Better to test on a separate card instead of potentially messing up the original further.

    iBeLink™ DM384M ASIC Dash Miner Support Thread

    Your best bet is to restore the image to a new SD card. For now you do not want to mess with the local Linux install in the miner. They have done some very inappropriate things to cgminer so we need the source first.

    Yes, and I appreciate you helping me previously and understand that there are many tasks to take care of. However as I keep stating this is just a few minutes of work. It should have been done when the miners shipped. It helps provide a better user experience as we can work with cgminer as...

    Bandwidth??

    What otaci said, do not count Loopback. That is just a fake network adapter used internally by the computer. Also your network usage will go up as you continue to gain reliable connections to other peers. I have seen bandwidth usage climb for 3 weeks or so until it finally stabilizes which by...

    Bandwidth??

    It looks like I have around 50GB a month as well across my masternodes, both in and out. Really that is not much, you are only talking about 0.02 MB/s. A Pi and home internet connection can handle that in most areas of the US. Though I still look forward to this requirement being a lot higher...

    True, however the dash price has not changed. So if you have dash and are mining dash nothing is different. Of course if you are like a couple of my friends who were going to buy dash to get one of these then you are squirming as you see the price rise. I give them credit for accepting Dash...

    Yeah, it would be nice to hear an update. When I met with him this past Sunday he had indicated they may start taking preorders next week with shipments beginning at the end of March. I got 500 Dash sitting by, just need to see a working blade.

    That is a good question for them. While they had no longer planned on releasing the USB version of the miner Soleo did ask me if there would be interest in them selling it. I am not interested in purchasing a USB version but maybe others would be? I just like to play with technology...

    iBeLink™ DM384M ASIC Dash Miner Support Thread

    I think there may be some confusion on this point. You already have an open source miner but just have not released the source yet. Your company modified cgminer, https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer, which is under the GPL license, https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer/blob/master/COPYING...

    The peak we saw averaged around 8.5 MH/s and ran it there for a long time. I did not ask about die size so he will have to answer that but the first post on this thread shows the package as QFN64, around 8mm x 8mm. I think he mentioned it being a 130nm process. While smaller processes exist...
