MinerEU, an official Gridseed and ZeusMiner distributor,
has announced today a new summer sale of Scrypt ASIC miners and the promotional prices they now have for some of the miners are really attractive. In fact these new prices make it really much more attractive to order from MinerEU than to purchase directly from ZeusMiner, especially the larger Hurricane and Thunder miners that you can currently get at half their normal price. So if you were considering to buy some Scrypt ASIC miners and not do some pre-order, then you might want to check this promotion.
The power consumption mentioned in the specifications of the miner is 750W and the power supply you will find inside the case is GameZone GX1100M, apparently rated at 1100W 80Plus Gold certified. We could not find that much information about these power supplies as they are apparently a Chinese brand, but a good quality one judging from the specs and the performance they offer – supposedly providing 90% efficiency. We are going to be comparing these power supplies to other well know brand model in terms of power usage and efficiency, but we are not going to be focusing on that here. The review of the miner will be done with the ATX power supply that you get the Scrypt ASIC miner with and as we’ve already mentioned the GameZone GX1100M does a great job in powering the device. The specific model should be capable of handling peaks of up to 1300W as we understand and it uses a modular design, though not fully modular.
