Generally EVGA and Corsair are your best picks. Even among those brands though, there are different suppliers that have different quality of parts. It's a rabbit hole that I go down sometimes but it's such a waste of time TBH. Bottom line is this PSU is a rebranded single rail Super Flower PSU (pretty good) with 5 year warranty (pretty good, and realistically all one really needs in a PSU).

Will it power 8 GPUs?

It has 6 PCIe lines, 1 (extra) CPU line (can convert to PCIe), and 4 molex lines. So all total 11 connectors. Each GPU needs a connector, and its riser needs a connector. So 8 GPUs needs 16 connectors. This falls short by 5. Which is why I like to recommend two smaller (750W or 850W) PSUs typically instead of 1 big PSU.

All hope is not lost though. If you're powering smaller GPUs (and it looks like you are) then you can buy splitters (like these) to turn one PCIe connector into two.

Things get tricky when you use splitters on a line that already has 2 PCIe connectors on it. Use this link to confirm that you're not overloading your line:

Another tip: Use risers that allow for power from a molex connector.


update: I suggest this one ( it's better (albeit "renewed") and cheaper.

One 240/30A should be adequate :) That gives you 7,200 watts and even at 80% load that's 5,760 watt max so you're pretty close to that number. Go with two x2 240/30A for now; you may just need the one extra down the road if you expand or have a tool or something that can take advantage of the 240's. Might as well get it done while the electrician is in there.

We upgraded ours completely as our 100 amp panel to be upgraded so had my friend (master electrician) install new 200 amp panel (waiting for 200A drop by the electric company). 40-slot panel including whole house surge protector (fits inside two slots).

I took the possible maximum power each card can draw just to have some breathing room and ended up with x2 240/30A breaker running on L6-30 plugs with Tripp-Lite PDU's ( I split the power between the two lines even though I can probably run all my 40 1080 Ti's on one but wanted to spread the load a bit.

240's are nice since there's a slight increase in efficiency but also you're able to run server PSU's like HP's with breakout board which ends up being cheaper than buying couple 1200W PSU's.

u/cryptohoarder144 · 1 pointr/gpumining

You will need more cables from evga to do it the way I described and a pair of risers that accept 6 pin pci-e cables (what EVGA calls "VGA". I use the 008s risers from mintcell as they will take sata, molex, or pcie. You're PSU came with 2 split VGA cables with a 6+2 and 6 connector... order 4 more. Use 4 of them to each power an individual sapphire (card only not riser). AFAIK (and people on the EVGA forum) you can plug perif/molex in the sata port on the PSU, I am doing so without any problems. I'd buy some more molex chains, and one run per sapphire riser plugging the additional ones in unused SATA ports on the psu. For the other 2 cards I would use the 2 remaining split vga chains, one for each card/riser... plug the 8 pin connector into the GPU and use the extra 6 pin connector with an extension to power a pcie riser for that card. Extension will only need to be 4-6" to reach the riser... i dont think anyone makes them that length but cable matters makes some 10" ones for $9 a pair on amazon with good reviews. For the extra VGA/Molex just call EVGA and tell them what you want and they'll send you an invoice to pay. I got 4 split vga's and a molex chain for $30 plus like 8 in shipping and got my cables within a week of calling.
To sum it up

to sum it up the 4 sapphires get all get a spit vga for the card and a single Molex/Perif for the riser each and the other 2 cards each get a split VGA with an extension on the 6 pin connector to reach a riser that accepts a 6 pin pcie connector.

You could probably get some molex extensions and run all molex risers with more than one per chain if you wanted to but I think the way I described is better.

Primary Components are...

Rosewill RSV-L4500 Case:

GPU Bracket Coversion Kit:

F12 Silent Arctic (~800RPM) 120mm Fans:

6-Pack v009S Risers:

6pin Extension Cables:

Corsair 1200 Watt Platinum PSU:

GIGABYTE GA-H110-D3A Mainboard:

4 PNY GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPUs:

I just built this for something to keep me out of trouble, didn't really expect to make any money, maybe free heat in the winter. So far I'm pleasantly surprised it's making ~$40 weekly (at rates as of today, lol) after deducting power costs. No sure how long it will last at that rate, but I'm having fun. Got one more 8pin (to dual 6pin) corsair type 3 cable arriving next week, then will be able to throw another card in there (PSU has six 8pin ports). Making about 100+ RVN daily right now, probably gonna look for newer coins once in awhile and just HODL them all and see what happens...that's my stragegy so far.

I was very surprised how well the 3 front fans do only being 800 to 1000 RPM, then again I don't have monster GPUs in this rig, just 6pin 1060s. Heat did NOT increase after closing the top, BUT I had to remove the front door because it cut down airflow too much and things heated up very quickly. Mining X16 seems to keep heat / power usage down I guess? Haven't mined much else yet, I suspect ethash might be a different story.

EDIT: The four 1060 GPUs are only pulling 330 watts at the wall...pretty sweet. I haven't mined in years, I was predicting a lot higher.

u/DarudeMyDude · 2 pointsr/gpumining

Definitely going to go for the Asus Strix 1070s then, what frame do you have? Also do you go for
Pci risers like this?

There's so many i am curious whats the best

u/nreid3 · 3 pointsr/gpumining

I have one, it is awesome!!! Comes with brackets to mount fans too. Highly recommend super sturdy, Don't know what LawrieUK is saying about holes missing, all mine were there. I got this one:

u/mastrkief · 1 pointr/gpumining

I'm using these risers and powering most of them with molex. I'm using 3x and 4x molex cables but only using 2 of them max per cable. the fact that they're 3x and 4x just makes them long enough to reach to the next card. You can just bend them under the riser so that the cable runs under the riser and to the next card's riser. You can also buy cable extensions to give you more room to work with, just make sure you find good quality ones. I don't have any recommendations as I have not had to buy extensions so far.

I hope to Christ you aren't still powering 5 risers off of a single daisy chained sata cable. You shouldn't be using SATA period but if you are going to gamble and are ok risking a fire, make sure you power sata directly without using any adapters and get crimped sata connectors and not molded ones as it will make it less likely you cause a fire. See here for an explaination

Check out this post I made last week regarding powering rigs. It has a lot of good information including in the comments where I had a lot of questions answered by the sub's residential electrical expert.

My advice is find a way to make 4-pin molex or 6-pin pcie work without adapters. Quality extenders are ok.

u/hammuh1911 · 2 pointsr/gpumining

Buy newer risers that have multiple power options including molex. Use molex cable plugged into your PSU's PERIF to power some risers. People say 2 risers per molex cable should be safe.

008s are good for regular motherboards.

009s are good for mining motherboards like Asus B250 mining expert and such.

You can use the 007 risers you bought once you've used up the PSU's molex cables.

Create a business.

Get commercial electric rates by googling “commercial electricity near me” and choosing an energy provider that offers commercial electric in your area. (You can get commercial electric in your home if it is also your business address).

Install 30-amp 240 volt circuit breakers with one corresponding outlet for each breaker. Buy one 30-amp PDU to plug into your 240 volt outlet. Make sure you install the correct outlets for the plug on the PDU that you choose.

Do not waste money on air conditioning. Install ducted ceiling exhaust fans. Exhaust through the roof and out of the house (not into the attic), or into an active plenum of a commercial space.

Feel free to message me for help with setting up your operation.

They came with the frame I bought. Here is a link to that frame if you wanna research those parts.

Aluminum Stackable Mining Case Rig Open Air Frame For ETH/ETC/ ZCash (Black)

My rig is loud, but my vegas run at 45 degrees celsius, which is really good I imagine. It is the memory that gets realllllly hot though, and Im not sure if that specific temperature is factored into the monitor program’s stated temperature, or if it is averaged.

I tried turning down the fan speeds, but I got blue screens lol even though I was chillin at 50 degrees celsius. I figure because the memory overheated. Anyways, goodluck!

u/spudmaster84 · 2 pointsr/gpumining

I found a custom cord page on that site:

I'm not sure how it validates the configuration since receptacles have different wires/grounding but they have an email you can contact on there for guidance.

If it's possible to change that plug into a NEMA L5-30 (which it seems is possible on that custom cord page) then op could get a PDU like this:

That might be a little overkill for what op needs.

Another option to consider is instead of using the C13 to NEMA 5-15 cables from your PSU, you can use C13 to C14 to a PDU that accepts them which would run your PSUs at 240V instead of 120V. Then instead of the NEMA 10-50 to L5-30 op could get a cable that does NEMA 10-50 to L6-30 and a PDU like this:

This is all operating under the assumption that it is possible to convert 10-50 to L5-30 or L6-30. NEMA 10-50 is non-grounding so that may be an issue.

u/rcm1986 · 1 pointr/gpumining

I love the 009s risers. There are PWR LED indicators on the PCB. Can be extremely helpful when troubleshooting cards.

I bought these

u/ivR3ddit · 2 pointsr/gpumining

I’m certain there are many other good ones available but I’m using these with my rigs. Really high quality (bottom is padded) and all arrived in perfect working condition.

u/CA_TD_Investor · 1 pointr/gpumining

I have used these from Mintcell as well as these from Explomos.
I have not had problems with either but I do think the Mintcell ones are easier to run wires as the connector for power is on the back by the USB plug in as opposed to on the side of the riser like the Explomos. But everyone has a different rig and wiring schema so that would be up to you.
How many are you looking at buying? I have some spare Explomos ones I could send you for cheap.

u/shadowofashadow · 1 pointr/gpumining

Yeah, parents suck sometimes. They think because they have authority they know what is right but it's not true.

I'm not sure what to tell you, best you could do is probably buy something like this and get 24 hours or more of data. If they still don't believe you then I'm not sure what else you can do except find a friend's house or something. Maybe you can find someone whose parents will let you run it for a small premium on the electricity?

u/ExceptionallyGreat · 1 pointr/gpumining

Depends on the CPU, I would expect something like Ryzen to be worth it. You should get a watt meter so you can keep track of your electricity usage.

Fun Fact: Switching to LED bulb saves about 80 watts of electricity per light bulb!

u/korben2600 · 1 pointr/gpumining

Yeah, I had an older 4 slot gaming board which I turned into 7 with a PCIe splitter. It also worked on my Z270-A which expanded it to 12 slots. But splitters can be hit or miss, especially with older mobos.

Whatever you do, do NOT order from Cryptomined. Scammed out of $39 for a splitter that I paid for with crypto. Got the run around for months upon months. Should've just ordered through Amazon to begin with, which I just ended up doing.

The wiki links here for a list of appropriate motherboards if you're going to spend money on a new one.

Some other lists:

Also, here's an interesting post I saved awhile back about a guy who used to buy a bunch of those cheap enterprise desktops and converted them into 3-4 gpu rigs. I guess this made more sense back when Z270s and mining experts were selling for $300.

u/bloodruns4ever · 1 pointr/gpumining

Oh I see now. I have these risers that come with 6 pin to sata.

I also have 2 sata to 8 pin power cables that came with my psu, the ones that look like this:

How many risers could I plug into one of these? I only have 2 cables which would be 3 risers per cable. Would it be better to get another cable and do 2 risers per cable?

u/v2irus · 1 pointr/gpumining has a reference cooler 1070 for 319 pounds(around 400$ i think). It's good for a closed case with nice airflow..

[Edit] I guess people got it after i advertised it on another post... :D

u/cryptowizzard · 1 pointr/gpumining

You need to build/buy a mining rig frame. You can check what other people did. Put the cpu, memory, cooler on the motherboard. Then put the motherboard and power supply on the frame. Give it a try before adding any gpu.

Then you add the risers, connectors. You cat try adding one graphic card boot and give a try to make sure it works. Then add the rest.

I don't think you need 2 psu. Each care will take max 150W, the mobo + cpu another 150. That's peaking to 1050 Watts. So one 1200 psu with plenty of connectors I think it's enough.

Regarding the risers you don't need the 16x to 16x. It's better to avoid the ones with ribbon cable. This type can be used also on pcie 16x slots(inserting them in the smaller part of the slot):

I ordered 6 a few days ago (Monday Night I think) from Amazon, delivered today, earlier than I expected. Shipped from Tx, not China.

I ordered the 006c version as opposed to the 006 version every else seems keen on. Not sure what the difference is besides the color and the power connector is a 6pin vs the 4pin of the 006. Haven't used them yet.

Which conversion cables are you referring to?

Here's my planned setup. From the wall socket which is a NEMA 14-30R I plan on plugging the following PDU into it

with the following adapter

Now the question is do i need to use any special PSU cables? Should I use the C19 ports on the PDU or are the standard C13 cables fine?

I plan on running 5 rigs, each rig is pulling about 750 from the wall when plugged into a standard 110 wall outlet.

I am currently powering each of my Zotac 1080 Ti Amp Extremes a Corsair (Type 4) 8 pin PCIE at the PSU to dual 8 pin PCIE (6+2) at the GPU.

Instead of powering my risers with molex or sata would it be okay to use the same kind of cables to power two separate risers using the 6 pin PCIE?

I would be plugging an 8 pin PCIE into the PSU then plugging one end of each 8 pin (6+2) PCIE cables into a 6 pin on the riser. Obviously, I wouldn't be using the +2 pin on either riser. Is this safe to do to power two separate risers? I assume the each 6 pin from the PCIE would be rated for 75w since the 8 pin PCIE is 150w before it splits to the dual 8 PCIE (6+2)?

Here is a picture of a cable similar to what I am talking about:

u/WalterMagnum · 3 pointsr/gpumining

UPS aren't relevant here. They are battery backups. You need a PDU. I use this one:
Make sure the plug matches. You will also need C14 to C13 power cords.

u/DJ_Skryblz · 3 pointsr/gpumining

You also have two PCI Express slots, so pick up a PCI E splitter for one or both! You may run into issues if the motherboard doesn't have options like Above 4G Decoding or setting lane speed, but 3 should work fine.

Could use one of these adapters along with one of these PDU's. We use a similar setup with an unused NEMA 14-50 outlet.

u/codereddew12 · 1 pointr/gpumining

If you had four 8-pin PCIE slots on your PSU, you would need either:

  1. 8-pin to dual 6+2 pin splitters


  2. Dual connector PCIE cables (EVGA usually includes at least 2 of these cables with their PSUs. The ends with the red arrows are the ones that plug into the actual GPU, whereas, the other end plugs into the 8-pin connector in the PSU).
u/Daniel644 · 1 pointr/gpumining

flipping the switch on a PSU doesn't turn it on by itself, you have to either jumper 2 specific pins in the 24 pin of the second PSU or you have to buy one of these kinds of things so that the Second PSU gets an on/off signal from the power button on your PC

I am having the same problem OP. It shows up as "working" on the bios screen, but when in the OS, it registers as "NVIDIA Corporation Device 2182 (rev a1)". When plugged into the x16 slot, it registers correctly as 1660 ti. So I guess it's the risers? These are the ones I bought:

Aren't 8 pins rated at 150 watts? If so, then having more than two 75 watt draws on one 8 pin cable would still overdraw.

Computers can act weird if not connected to a monitor. I had a similar situation as you. Sometimes it was fine and sometimes it didnt want to boot. I bought a “headless” plug and never looked back. It fools your system into thinking a monitor is plugged in.

I would recommend Mailiya v006C, zero issues and very clean nicely soldered boards.

Mailiya v006C Wonderful risers.

Don't use Ubit v103C, those things are trash and caused me hours of headache. I opened 7 of them and only 4 worked. Poor soldering, splattered solder, missing solder, poor power. Even the ones that did work did not play nice with the MSI Armor series of cards. I wish I kept them longer to analyze but by the time I had enough I just wanted to get my money back. The ones here... do not buy.

Edit: Thanks for the downvotes. Fuck me for having a bad experience with your precious Ubit.

u/Morgon_ · 1 pointr/gpumining

The SATA thing seems to be... I wouldn’t say “overstated”, because people have had serious damage, but many of us are having no trouble with them, especially when undervolting the cards.

Having said that, if you want to cut down on clutter a little, I would suggest a splitter.

For my Vegas, I put the two ends of the splitter into my card (also making it easier to disconnect from my rig if needed!), then plug the second head of my PCIe power into the riser. As long as you’re not pulling more than 300W (or 150 if a single-head PCIe), you’ll be fine.

(No bot, go away)

u/realslizzard · 3 pointsr/gpumining


I know this has been discussed to death but using the molex to sata or 6pin to sata adapters are definately bad (another link that can burn down). If they were connected directly from the PSU with the OEM cables with no splitters or adapters it SHOULD be ok.

Rarely do I see it happen tho.
I bought this riser specifically for that so I can use 1 molex/sata per lane and have both options, I can even go 6 pin on all of them if I buy the cables but I don't trust 3rd party cables
