Buying first rig with 6x Asus Radeon 280X, advice needed
« on: November 28, 2013, 09:20:44 PM »
I'm thinking of ordering the following components:
 
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65
CPU: Intel Celeron G1610
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 8 GB (2x4GB) CL9
SSD: A-Data Premier Pro SP900 64GB
PSU: 2X Corsair RM1000 1000W
GPU: 6X Asus Radeon R9 280X 3GB DirectCU II TOP
 
+Powered x1 to x16 risers
 
Will this play nicely together? Is the 2x 1000W PSUs a ok solution? I think a 1600W PSU might be too low for 6 GPUs. Would i be better off with a 1600W PSU and only 5x GPUs?
 
What hash rate should i get of this build?
 
Thanks for any input.

You should be able to get 4200-4500 kH/s out of this build. I don't see any issues with it, but I'm not an expert. I may be missing something.

Hey
I don´t think your 1.6Kw Psu is able to power up all cards its better to buy 2x 1.2Kw because one of this card need 300W and its better to have more power than don´t have enough


I agree with 2LTC You can have 4200-4500 (4600 maybe) kH/s

It looks great and is very similar to this 6 GPU guide that thousands of miners have used successfully:

The only thing you might want to be careful of is whether your household circuits can handle the load. Also, be sure to space the cards out enough and add supplemental cooling (box fan or similar) if needed to keep your card temps down. Under-volting the cards helps with heat as well.

Sorry to go a bit OT from the original post, but I'm curious as to what makes mining with 5+ GPU's more of a hassle? Thanks, I'm new here  ;)

 

Sapphire Radeon r9 280x or another GPU?
