First, I was not happy when I first turned it on & heard very noisy sound from inside the unit. I guessed that a cable got into the cooling fan, and I was right – after I disassembled the unit, clearly the fan's own power cable was stuck into itself. That's rather sloppy .
Anyway, after that it runs with no problem.
Actually, it ran at 110% of its advertised speed 🙂 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BXajykXCAAAI_BD.png:large
Pretty nice !
Now with Bitcoin at USD$ 200, definitely looking forward to start seeing the mining results of this machine 🙂
It's pretty easy to setup too, especially in Ubuntu.
Just follow this tutorial : https://forums.butterflylabs.com/showwiki.php?title=Tutorials:ASIC+Mining+on+Ubuntu+and+other+Linux+distros
With two additions to that :
# Before compiling cgminer, install libudev : sudo apt-get install libudev-dev
# If you encountered error -3 with cgminer, even after doing all the instructions there, then try running cgminer as root.
Let's mine ! :)
