Unfortunately, demand for FPGA miners has been too low in recent months to justify continuing to produce new X6500s. For the foreseeable future, Fpga bitcoin mining board Mining will be suspending operations. It’s sad to step away from such an exciting and interesting project, but the time has come. Thank you all for your interest and support!
We’ll still be involved in the Bitcoin world and hopefully find a new project to participate in soon! FPGA Mining LLC now has our very own store! X6500s are in stock and ready to ship now. Along with this move, we’re announcing new low prices. On top of that, we’re offering big bulk discounts on orders of four or more boards, which you can now get automatically through the store.
Unfortunately, we’re unable to accept bitcoin payments through the store right now. If you’d like to pay with bitcoins, send us an email and we’ll handle that directly. As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been sold out of X6500s for a while now. The good news is that we finally have a new batch in!
Burn in testing has begun and you should see more stock at Cablesaurus. We’re also accepting bulk orders now, with lead times of about a week, depending on the size of the order. It includes a driver installation program for the libusb driver, MPBM with compiled EXE, and all the current mining firmware. I tested it out on clean VM installs of Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 7 32-bit, and Windows XP 32-bit. Let me know if there are any problems. Though I did take a lot of time testing it, this is still fresh off the presses. Our measurements have shown that on most rev3 boards, performance can be increased significantly by slightly increasing this voltage.
Because of this, all rev3 boards starting today will be shipped with VCCINT set to 1. You can either attempt this yourself or send it back to us and we’ll do the work free of charge. We only ask that you pay the return shipping charge. I took some photos of the rev 3 boards today.
Check them out on the Product page! To prepare for the imminent release of the new and improved X6500 rev 3, we’re moving over to a new website today. 20 Icarus to one 650W ATX power is better. Icarus to your 12V yellow cables. If you have more Icarus like 40. Cables link: ATX cable 1 ATX cable 2 Power cable 5.
Burned bad quality cable, it should be 4 yellow cables and 4 black cables. Burned power adapter, the case became uneven. Icarus connect to this power adapter not broken. PWR_OK: power modules output are all in good voltage.
