    FS: Samsung SSD PM1643 3.84TB SAS 12Gb/s MZ-ILT3T8A & Ultrastar NS100 1.6TB SAS PCIe x4

    Not sure yet but Chia plotting doesn't require super fast SSDs anymore (can plot a lot faster using 256GB of RAM).

    FS: Samsung SSD PM1643 3.84TB SAS 12Gb/s MZ-ILT3T8A & Ultrastar NS100 1.6TB SAS PCIe x4

    I've got a couple SSD drives for sale. The PM1643 drives were pulled from a NetApp appliance and reformatted to 512 byte sector size. These were used for Chia plotting but they have plenty of life left. I didn't check the endurance info before pulling them but it is definitely over 85% if not...

    HGST He8 Ultrastar 8TB HUH728080AL5200 $82

    I honestly don't understand all the crypto hate on tech forums. A small minority of crypto transactions are for illegal purposes btw. Also, an ROI of 6 months, even 10 months is pretty desirable as far as long term mining goes so my prediction is hard drive prices will remain where they are for...

    WTB: multiple 2.5" 5TB drives

    I have a few 4TB and 5TB 2.5" drives, seagate barracudas I believe that were used for media storage and then Chia mining. Don't remember the exact number but around 8-10 drives in total. I'll make a thread this weekend once I've figured the exact quantities out.

    THE CHIA FARM

    Well if you make a bash script the syntax is pretty similar to powershell. Keep in mind you will want to have #!/bin/bash at the top of your script file, as in the examples. Then when you save your script, give it an .sh extension for good measure, and you'll probably want to chmod +x it to make...

    THE CHIA FARM

    You can create a simple bash script to do everything that you asked. Double-clicking to run the script is controlled by your window manager. Take a look here for some examples of how to get that setup.

    SOLD: Western Digital Data102 JBOD Enclosure $200 + Shipping

    Glad I got here late. This would have definitely caused me to buy more drives for Chia farming.

    EXPIRED HUH728080AL5200: $119.95

    What I want to know is how did it take this long for these drives to sell out? Looks like they've been listed at this price since April? Or maybe seller just got more stock recently and didn't raise the price.

    I have 8 LB1606R drives I'm looking to sell, probably not as cheap as you're looking though but you can PM me if you're interested.
