BIOSTAR, a top provider of mining motherboards and graphics cards, introduces a turnkey solution for mining at home with iMiner A578X8D/iMiner A564X12P/iMiner A578X6. The iMiner series comes as a single unit black box machine that supports ethOS and is fully equipped with BIOSTAR TB250-BTC series motherboard, CPU, GPU, memory, and power supply. It allows ultra-mining flexibility as it supports GPU mineable crypto currencies such as Ethereum, Monero, Bitcoin Gold and Zcash.

All iMiner systems are based on the Intel 3930 CPU and Intel B250 chipset for maximum mining power. BIOSTAR iMiner A578X8D with ETH hashrate of 220 MH/s (±5%) uses the popular BIOSTAR TB250-BTC D+ with 8 x AMD RX570 8G graphics card and a high performance 1600W single rail 12v power supply (optional) with dual-ball bearing fans to offer ultra durable operation 24/7. BIOSTAR iMiner A564X12P with ETH hashrate of 148 MH/s (±5%) uses the BIOSTAR TB250-BTC PRO with 12 x AMD RX560 4G graphics cards on a 1300W power supply. BIOSTAR iMiner A578X6 with ETH hashrate of 165 MH/s (±5%) also uses the BIOSTAR TB250-BTC PRO with a modest 6 x AMD RX570 8G (which can be expanded for up to 12 GPUs) with a 1300W power supply.

All BIOSTAR iMiner models come with unique software:
BIOS Working/Error/None States - Detect GPU state on POST screen, so miners can fix it before entering the OS. The BIOS detects PCI-E slot state according to their positions: Working, Error, and None. Working means that the GPU is operating at normal state. Error means that the data is incomplete. None means that no signal for GPU.

MINING DOCTOR - BIOSTAR's exclusive application to check the current state of each GPU such as usage, core, clock speed, memory clock speed, fan speed, and temperature. In addition, if iMiner has an error state, it immediately sends an email notification making it easy to monitor and manage scaled mining farm remotely.

BIOSTAR iMiner series uses the best mining hardware and offers an easy-to-use solution for both for professional miners and home miners. There are three different models to choose that fits your budget. The BIOSTAR iMiner A578X6 is a great start with hashrate of 165MH/s (±5%) and allows for additional GPU expansion. Next would be BIOSTAR iMiner A564X12P with hashrate of 148 MH/s (±5%). For the ultimate performance, go with BIOSTAR iMiner A578X8D with hashrate of 220 MH/s (±5%). In addition, software provided will make this an enjoyable and easy mining experience.

Contrary to popular belief, kidneys are not worth an awful lot on the black market - eyes however, are where the real money is at.

In other news, I'm curious what kind of warranty this thing comes with.

Pirate eye patches are a thing lately, so left or right right?

warranty = 30 minutes or 30 feet.

Those cards gonna cook in no time.
Why would they? notice the 3x 120mm high performance fans right infront of the cards? This machine is ment to be run in a rack with absolutely no regard to noise, so they are probably several thousand RPM beasts

Those cards are pretty much designed to run at 70 up to 80 degrees for a long time. But proberly fail right after warranty has expired.

You could downclock those, lower voltage, get better efficiency and so on. 3 of these beasts still generate a decent amount of money. Esp when your putting this into a business where electricity goes for like 7 ~ 9 cents per KWH on 380V rather then 220V.
