If you didn’t get a chance to see my first video on the Antminer S1 take a look.

  1. I noticed you set this up with an Ethernet router, but couldn't you use a single Ethernet cable for all of them? I mean, look at the way the two blades on a single S1 connect together. Do you see how there is an empty socket on one of the two boards? It appears to correspond with used socket that the Ethernet board uses to connect to the other board. What if, on a second unit, you disconnected the 4-pin socket from it's Ethernet board and instead connected it to a neighboring S1's empty 4-pin socket? Would the software be able to manage it? Because if that could work, it seems like it would use much less energy than having to use several Ethernet lines and multiple routers.

  2. i would keep a few of them and undervolt also buy some s3's like i have, then again i know the s4 is going to be released i am assuming with the jump from the s1 to s3, the s4 jump from the s2 is going to be very good,  its getting to the point where it going to be a room full of them (farm) for all of us

  3. What is the spec of the PCIE cable I need to buy (or better still a manufacturer)?  I'm confused by the plugs on the end.  The PCIE extender cables seem to have a femail on one end and a male on the other.  But bothe the Ant and the PSU seem to need male connectors!!  Pleas help!
