Our team at FPGA.guide is constantly updating our site to ensure our info fresh for you guys. Here are the five important updates we think FPGA miners should know about.
1. Hardware Announcements
The recent group-buy for Huawei F100 has been cancelled since they didn't reach the minimum quantity of 1,000 pieces.
SQRL has announced that Acorns and Nests will start shipping this week. After multiple delays, this update is quite exciting.
2. Minor Boards
In the FPGA community, most people know only of major boards, like the BCU-1525, the CVP-13, and the BTU9P. However, a handful of smaller manufacturers have started building and selling their own. Below are five minor boards relevant to FPGA mining:
- Cairnsmore5 (by Enterpoint)
- TPS-1525 (by TalentPros)
- MA-X1 (by Krunchlabs)
- FM-1L & FM-1HBM (by TrustFarm)
- F1 (by Blackminer)

1. Nexus (2.1 GH/s, 2.4 GH/s, 2.7 GH/s)
4. Water Block
Currently, there are two manufacturers of water blocks: TUL and Dimastech. We know they use different materials, but we haven't compared their performance. Right now, the two popular water blocks on the market are:
- TUL Water Block for VCU/BCU1525
- Dimastech® XMV-Cool Waterblock for VCU/BCU1525
