The first and main setup is going to be a Butterfly Labs 10Gh/sec USB mining unit being driven from a Mac OS X Server. Bitcoin-QT is being used for the wallet and MacMiner will drive the mining unit. Based on some information I’ve gathered from others, I’m going to try and set this one up in a non-pooled environment. Maybe I’ll get lucky.
The second setup is going to be a collection of Erupter 333Mh/sec USB sticks being driven off of a RaspberryPi. I purchased five of these USB miners and together they will total somewhere over 1.6Gh/sec. These will operate in a pooled environment so I can gauge how much I can mine within a collective. Rather than having the USB sticks plugged into the RaspberryPi, I will use a 7-port USB hub and cooling fan. These little USB sticks run really hot, I guess too hot to even touch. So the last pic shows them with little heat sinks that I’ve purchased for them.
My third and final setup will run off one of my other machines. I’ve purchased a couple 1.6Gh/sec AntMiners. One of these AntMiners will process the same amount of hashes as 5 of the Erupters.
