Before I decide to buy a miner, I wanted to know what I would need to get it up and running, such as cords, equipment, etc. I've got my eye on a $35.00 1.4 Th/s ASIC miner, and i'm hoping anything else i need will be less than $15. Thanks in advance.
$35 is a good deal, may be too good.
Well there are a couple of things I would recommend.
- Somewhere to put your miner. Maybe an open-air rack? You really don't want it to be mining in the corner of your house.
- Extra cooler? Maybe some external heat-sinks and a good fan you can aim at the miner
- Your miner should come with power cables, etc. I wouldn't expect to need any. But if you're worried, ask the seller if the miner comes with cables.
- If you really want, a solar panel if you don't have one already. Doesn't have to be solely for your miner, you could use it as a long-term investment :)
