1 OCTOMINER B8PLUS 8 PCIe Slot Mining Motherboard
A quad core 3ghz cpu
32 go ddr
250gb ssd
Gb net adaptor
8 PCIe expansion boards
(1 PCIe to 8 PCIe )
total GPU gaming graphic cards 64

The mobo & power supply
will not support
the load of all the GPUs

I need to DIY power to the GPUs some ting lack
the 3dfx voodoo 5500 card
It Used a power cord for the IDE hard drive & CD-ROM
to power up the agp card

It 6.4 Kilo Watts of GPUs
Can I split the load
on multiple power suplys

like 10 or 12 GPUs on a
1300watts power supply
and control all 6 power supply
in parallel to run
the mining rig more like a pool
mining at +/- 6400 MH/s

Or is it bather to K I S S
And use 8 indevidal rig of 8 GPUs
in a pool fashion network

  1. Where are you located? In the UK the most a household mains socket is rated for it 13A 240v.
  2. In Canada and the stove plug 40a x 240v =8kw
  3. In Canada the electric main for a household is 200a at 240 volt centre tap for 120 volt utility plus are 15a 1850 Watts I’m planing to use the electric range outlet it a 40amps at 240 volts ct it more power 120+120Nutral and grand

    I think a reconstruction of your question is needed here.

    Exactly what are you trying to do, with what equipment?

    OCTOMINER B8PLUS 8 PCIe Slot Mining Motherboard a cpu som ram to build the ultimate mining rig
    add 8 PCIe x8 GPU expansion boards
    to power up a total of 64 GPU gaming graphic cards ?????????????????????????? A costum or multiple (1300watts) power supply
    6400 Watts more or less
    at 100 watts a GPU card is a minimum of 30 amps
    at 240 volts can’t run off mobo directly so the gpu card need to power from a external connection diy some power configuration too run it

    Do you own this yet? Because it will be a giant waste of money. You can't mine bitcoin with it, and etherium will be going async shortly, leaving you with other cryptos whose value is questionable.

    Its your money, but getting into the game with a rig like that now, is a massively bad idea.
  5. Please keep it to 1 thread.

    You have to hand it to the guys that are putting out the 1st Etherium asic miner. Me I would just horde them and pile up all the coin myself.
