For better demonstration, I completely disassembled my S1, if you want a quick upgrade, get the job done by replacing associated hash boards. Here is the important thing: S1 controller, with the adapter board from upgrade kit, it becomes S3 controller!
S3 hash board, viewed from the back. I believe it has a better cooling performance. Use four brackets to attach adapter board with the S1 controller, then lock it on control board holder with four screws. This is my thermal paste, net weight g, enough for upgrading 20 or more AntMiner S1.
Precisely attach the S3 hash antminer with the heat sink, then lock it with 16 screws. Notice that do not use the 4 screw holes in the middle of the hash board! We need them later. Attach the hash units with the mini customized heat sink, then lock it tightly with 4 screws.
If people are ordering stuff more than 3 months ahead of time they are brave. S3 and Neptune owners are being given a antminer right now. It looks right now like there will be minimal increase. The thing I wonder is when those AM chips start getting put into use. I thought everybody buying miners would be able to work a calculator. How people still manage to place orders with BFL is mindblowing. So I antminer way off. People will do things that I cannot understand. People have just thrown caution to the wind. As long as BTC goes up, you can certainly make a profit.
You just have to buy with fiat i. If you just buy with BTC antminer already have, it will be difficult. Powered by SMF 1. February 04, Refine more Format Antminer. Best Match Best Match.
