The Antminer S7 comes powered by a 28nm BM1385 ASIC chip, which are kept cool by two different fans. It can reach a hashrate of up to 4.75 TH/s and requires a 1600-watt power supply unit for the best performance. The S7-LN comes with a power supply included so you don’t even have to worry about that aspect of purchase and setup. The S7 pulls 1293 watts or more in a room cooled to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s a much more efficient miner than the S5 and requires only 0.25 J/GHs. The price for this miner has been discounted a large amount so it is extremely competitive in terms of value compared to miners with similar specifications.

Antminer S7 Colocation Hosting
As with most miners, you can do your hosting at home or in your office, but you must be aware of the fact that this will create a large amount of heat and noise. You will need to be sure your home has the proper circuits for the miner, which means consulting with an electrician and potentially making upgrades. The other option is to choose colocation hosting from a professional company. There are many locations and prices available to fit the needs of any miner, from expert to hobby users. The best option is a miner-friendly colocation option that is familiar with hosting this type of hardware and keeping it secure and protected at all times.
