Buy bitcoin miner don't try to buy a miner based on only

Biggest of thank you's to the Elite Dangerous community-Poizen22

Greetings Cmdr's of the elite dangerous community,
As some of you may be aware my family and I were victims of a house fire this last September 18th. I wanted to offer an update on the situation from beginning to current to give everyone an update, thank them for what they have done for my family and, I and lay a few rumors to rest.
Since then it has been a tremendous 3 month long journey of emotions, suffering, and generosity. Its been a roller coaster to say the least. There was the initial shock of experiencing it all and loosing everything we owned, I spent a day in hospital for carbon monoxide exposure. Everything was uncertain for us it wasn't great. There have been two things that have helped me get through this series of events, the First is the woman I love so much I have become engaged to, the second has been this community of players along with my Black Lance Mercenaries.
Not long after the fire a friend of mine I met through Elite Dangerous Who I became good friends and now know IRL saw what I was going through and decided he wanted to put his online personality to use and start a fundraiser for my wife and I to assist in anyway he could with the endeavor. This was not something I asked him for and the idea of it had my fiance and I in tears from the idea of such generosity, as our friend also knew I had just recently lost work in August (Ncix my former employer also just filed for bankruptcy December 1st a few days ago) and burned through all my savings with veterinary hospital bills this last February when our dog became ill.
What followed was the greatest collective act of generosity I have ever received from a community of acquaintances than I have ever received before in my life. His stream and the generosity of this community raised us 2400$ Canadian. This gesture was beyond the generosity my fiance and I could have imagined. Elite Dangerous community thank you you helped a man and his future wife get through an incredibly tough time. The money helped My fiance and I actually live, help me look for work and try and resemble even the slightest bit of normal life. The money was used to purchase clothes, bedding, Prescription medications our "Canadian health care" didn't cover, toiletries, toothbrushes, put a repair into our 2003 Hyundai SUV that could of got me pulled over especially with all the extra driving living out of our car at first. Clothing, haircut and a shaver for myself to look for work, resumes being printed and fuel and parking going to all the interviews.(I found a part time job 2 weeks ago BTW) and another bloody vet bill. When you loose every essential in your life and are unemployed and have to replace every essential you need the 2400$ got us through about the first month And I Honestly couldn't be more thankful because I have no idea how we would have gotten through without you guys. About another month since then has passed and we have had a few updates. We were finally able to put forward an insurance claim after close to a month of issues with the claim contents. The house has started a slow rebuild the entire thing was stripped down to the inner studs to be odor sealed. and is only finishing getting dry wall up. still need floors on all floors and refinishing of the kitchen (cabinets and such) and are only finding out now we still will not be in our home for Christmas until likely the new year.
The next event was our insurance claim has gone through, and were approved for our claim, I also want everyone to know we didn't place any claims for items we replaced with money raised through the community fundraiser as we felt that wasn't fair to our insurance or the community of people who helped us out we weren't in this to benefit from anything but only have our old life back. I actually used tons of the advise several people sent me personal messages about on how to handle insurance claims and inventory and price our possessions to minimize our loses this alone was incredible help.
I have since repurchased and assembled a computer I am unbelievably happy to have again, due to the price of hardware inflation from bitcoin miners on mid to high mid range components and some good black Friday sales I was able to afford a few upgrades that more or less equate to the stuff just being newer than my old 4770k system. I have forgone some of the things I had as well to make better purchasing decisions this time around. With a new computer and the ability to return to playing with a community that has supported me and been there for me so much these last 3 months makes this week one of the most exciting moments its been all year for me. I had heard that a few people had questions about what was going on and understandably so as I have been super up and down with my emotions and I wanted to set some facts straight for everyone, so thanks for taking the time to read.
For this generosity all I can do is to say thank you and contribute to this community the same way they did for me when the opportunity arises for me to return the favor. I have been through a rough time but I have learnt a lot about people including the fact that Elite Dangerous has the best community of people I have ever had the pleasure of playing a game with and that I Want to be there for its members when the times comes.
Cant wait to fly with all of you again will give you an update when I am home. o7 o7 o7 Cdmr's Poizen22

I think I've approached this wrong...

When I first started mining just over a year ago, it was suggestion by the same user that got me into mining on Ncix.com that I get a wallet at QuadrigaCX and use that as my nicehash address for mining, I have since then moved on to Sniffdog Miner but the same process applies pretty much which is entering in the btc wallet address I want my btc payouts from the pools to go to.
Since mining for over a year I've accumulated a decent amount of bitcoin as well as a bit of litecoin and bitcoin cash. So it has been brought to my attention that keeping my coins in a Quadrigacx wallet is the same as leaving it on the exchange correct? I've only been using QuadrigaCX as a wallet and that is neither correct not safe?
So if I'm planning on holding my coins for a few years I probably shouldn't be keeping it in my QuadrigaCX wallet and transfer it to a blockchain wallet or something similar right? The user from Ncix was probably suggesting what he did, thinking it was for constantly cashing out the profits? Which I don't intend on doing for a few years.
Edit: oh and if using a different wallet is suggested, when it does come time to cashing out and I have to send the btc back to QuadrigaCX, I'm guessing there're fees involved?

Estimating the marginal cost of a transaction on the Bitcoin (Cash) network

Recently, the mempool has not been clearing with every block found. Should we immediately raise the block-size? Perhaps put plans to make the easy relay of sub satoshi/byte transaction on hold?
Assumptions:
Step 1: find the price of storing a transaction
Searching NCIX:
Calculate the price per TB, assuming 1 is 6 drives are used for parity (30 bays usable storage)
Estimate the UTXO premium:
As you can see. miners have a strong incentive to offer free UTXO consolidation transactions: and require bulk UTXO fanning transaction to pay a fee of 494.86sat/kB -- about 0.5 sat/byte. ((0.01249USD/kB)/(2523.96USD/BCH)*100,000,000sat/BCH)
Fees are no where near that high due to the block subsidy. For an 8MB block: 1,250,000,000 satoshies/ 8000 kB -> 156,250sat/kB; or more conventionally: 157satosies/byte.. Note that the block subsidy per kB goes down with larger block-sizes.
Step 2: Estimate Bandwidth costs
Disclaimer: I am not too familiar with commercial bandwidth plans
Exercise to the reader:
Re-do these calculations for hobbyist hardware and internet connections. You probably have to assume a smaller block size: such as 100MB.
Disclaimer: I later learned the site I was using for prices (NCIX) was bankrupt. Not sure how much that would skew prices.

Couple of Questions on Ethereum (New)

First of all, yeah, Austin Evans really hit a big crowd with his new video. If this is anything close to Bitcoin, get ready for difficulty increase.
So, after following two guides, I'm in the process of setting up Geth to mine. I couldn't figure out how to download Ethminer, so now I'm looking at other options. My questions are down below. Thanks!
How long can Geth take to set up? I've been running it for hours, and I've heard days possibly. Why choose Geth to mine? Is it because it won't charge a fee or something? Or maybe because of the simplicity of it being some kind of source code program? (Sorry if I seem stupid; I'm a little new to this and I'm trying to learn.) Other than Geth, what better options are there? I've heard of "MinerGate" and "Claymore DualMiner" (Thanks NCIX). Will these other systems charge some type of fees? They seem easier to set up and don't take as much time, but that's to the untrained eye. If I don't have to worry about electricity (moving into a dorm in a month where I don't have to pay utilities), I assume a Zotac 1080 graphics card should do the trick? Other than that, thanks for helping!

Video card troubles

So I'm working on my first build buying parts one at a time and I'm finally to the video card. This is where I figure out that I literally can't find a 580 in stock anywhere. As I understand, bitcoin miners have been buying all of them up.
So here's my build, could you guys recommend me a card, or is this 570 4gb I found at my local best buy decent?

If I were to buy a ASICMiner Block Erupter Cube, what would I need.

I was thinking about buying an ASIC miner just to try it out and see what it is like, not really looking to make money, just a little hobby. I looked at eBay (I know it's not the best place to find good quality things), and I found this ASIC.
ASIC
PSU
Is that all I would need to use this ASIC? Do I need to plug it into a computer or modem/router etc. Is the PSU enough to power the ASIC?
Also a note, electricity cost is not an issue.

Notes:
I am a n00b at finding PC parts. Any suggestions would be nice.
Edit: Literally everyone has said to get the GTX 980 Ti because of its price:performance ratio being better. You should look into that if the price seems high (which it is).
wkper's list is the best one here.

[Build Help] Upgrading 2009 CPU/New second build!

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
I want a PC to start trading forex, web development, graphic design, play games. Pretty much an important part of my business and personal life. I have just set up a 4 monitor station however this 2009 PC is running very slow and hot. Really want to be able to continue that and have a fast, strong computer.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
Mainly play League of Legends or starcraft 2 or anything from steam library. Resolution I am currently running 3 monitors at 1920x1080. Want to run games at 60fps at High/Ultra quality.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
I want to spend around $1,000. Probably reuse some old parts. I feel I need to update the CPU, Motherboard, Memory, Case & SSD.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Canada

I will not be overclocking. I'm open to any suggestions on the build. Here's my questions, just looking for reassurance/criticism on some of my decisions:
  1. I decided to go with a used ebay video card since the HD 7970s are so cheap (thank you bitcoin miners). I think that as long as the seller offers some return policy for a broken product and has good reviews, this should be safe. Is this a bad idea?
  2. I'm using an extremely basic PSU for a low price. My rig isn't supposed to exceed 400 watts, so I think a 430 watt should be safe. Should I upgrade the PSU?
  3. Since I'm not overclocking, is there any need for more fans? The case has a front intake, the GPU has builtin fans, and the CPU should come with a sufficient heatsink, right?
Thanks!

[Build Ready] It's been a long time coming...(Canada)

I just purchased two of the following parts over the weekend as His & Hers mid-level gaming/coding computers for my wife and I. It's basically a Tier 1 config from Hardware Revolution, combined with some left over parts we had on hand.
Everything was purchased through NCIX (with price match) to save on shipping, except for the Sapphires (Newegg) and the monitors (Amazon).
I've been using a 10" netbook for the past few years and we've been sharing that as our sole computer since the family PC died about eight months ago. We're itching to get back into gaming!
My biggest concern is our choice of graphics card. With bitcoin miners to contend with, the unusually higher price of the R7 265 makes me think I should have stretched for a 660 instead. This setup was already pushing our budgetary limits though and if we spent another $30 on a card it would have been doubled for both machines.
We've been out of the gaming scene for so long that I'm not sure what we'll be playing; probably source games, Assassins Creed, WoW and similar genres/titles. As for productivity, they'll be used for surfing, web development, Linux stuff, video processing and photo editing.
I'll do a follow up once they're both ready.
Thanks for any feedback or tips.

Other notes are that I would strongly advise AGAINST using this motherboard, I had to RMA my first one. The replacement was supposed to be revision 2.0 however is 1.0. This is why I purchased the 230mm fan (in hopes of avoiding another fire!)
I didn't end up using the SSD as its just an HTPC/miner. It mines roughly 690Khash/s on the 7970; and around 110Khash/s on the APU (mining with Scrypt for Litecoin, not SHA-256 for bitcoin) 7970 hovers around 68-74 Celsius with room temps between 23-28C. No thermostat on VRM's unfortunately.
I feel confident this build is complete, no parts to add. I use Filezilla server as a file server as I can access this from anywhere in the world The A10 is at stock speeds as I don't want to push the VRMs on the motherboard and risk another fire. This gives more than enough power for blu-ray decoding, and other HTPC duties.
Very happy with this build. If anyone has any questions or comments I'd be glad to hear the feedback. Thanks

[Build Ready]

Hey guys,
I'm gonna use this build for gaming and given the shortage of parts in Bulgaria (and the prices - which are quite the bummer for me) I've chosen these parts for my build. Currently I have a 1680x1050 monitor (think that's 780p) and hoping to upgrade but I don't think that will be any soon.
I've already purchased R9 290 second hand for a cheap price - was used as a BitCoin miner. I'm planning to overclock in the future so I'll replace the stock cooler of the CPU with Evo 212 (in future, no money atm). That's why I'm getting the k version of 4690. Here's the build - any thougths?
Edit: I think the PSU is a lil overkill, but can't grab the 750W version (being bought out pre-e-e-e-ty fast here)

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.
I've been using this rig to game for a while, and everything seemed fine. It can handle what I throw at it, and didn't ask too many questions about the performance. But now that I've got an HTC Vive and Oculus Rift (kickstarter backer), it is apparent that there is a big performance gap between when my computer first starts up, and after a couple of hours. And when I say big, I mean HUGE.
I first thought it was due to an incompatible USB3 chipset, that the tracking itself was jittering, but then I did some 3Dmark 11 tests separately from the VR headsets, and it's clear that right after restarting my PC, it's fast, and after a while it becomes slower. It might have something to do with sleep mode, but I think it happens after a while anyway. Sometimes, in a Vive gaming session, it starts out fast for about 10 minutes and then becomes slow. It's hard to put a time on it.
Look at this! Score after restart: 15764 http://i.imgur.com/ZtEQHyj.png
Score after a while: 7433 http://i.imgur.com/sRYR8fJ.png
That's less than half the score...
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
I close down F.lux before I do these tests, I've also removed old NVIDIA drivers with DDU and reinstalled the latest one. I shut down as many programs that might be running in the background.
CPU temps are normal, when I'm rendering 3D graphics for example they are at 100% load and temps are at maximum 45°C. There's a huge cooler on there, because I was planning on overclocking the CPU but haven't done it yet.
GPU-wise, I'm not sure what to check. Temps are at 59°C right now as I'm typing this and GPU load at 87% (I've got a lot of tabs open in Chrome at the moment).
EDIT:: So my GPU load seems to be stuck at 87% when idling... so I'm going to run a malwarebytes scan, maybe I'm mining bitcoin via a virus or something?
In the HTC Vive Performance analyzer, I can see constant dropped frames when the performance is low.
I've installed CPU-Z and Process explorer, and the culprit seems to be a process called Steam - when I kill it, my GPU load goes back to normal. It's a supposed bitcoin miner, removal instructions here: https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/35221584425122691/
Jesus Christ if this is true I don't want to know how much electricity I've been wasting

[Build Help] Go big or go home; multi-use machine with room for future growth

Per the title, I want to put together something for a variety of purposes, and be able to add on as time goes on.
Uses for the machine:
The 6990 is just a pricewise placeholder: I'm waiting for the 7990. If they're hard to come by, I'll probably start hunting for a second one soon after building the rig. Although, since I don't need Crossfire for mining with multiple cards, I suppose I don't need to have matching cards.
The three 1TB drives are for a RAID 5. I currently have a slow 2TB drive that I'm going to use for weekly backups. I may add an SSD just for those really fast boot times.
I was going to go for three monitors (the (6/7)990 can drive four, yes?) but I don't think I have the desk space. Maybe someday, just to feel like I'm commanding a starship.
Any and all criticisms, suggestions, and substitutions are welcome.
