I’m starting to scale up my mining and I’ve noticed PSUs seem to be the real bottleneck. I was wondering what some of you are using for larger scale rigs. I’m planning to only use EVGA 1080ti black editions as they’re working great for me.
I’ve noticed people seem to use the EVGA 1300W a fair bit but my question is this. I’ve noticed it has 6 PCIE connectors on it. So in my estimation you’re only going to get 3 cards on a 1300W power supply and run a lower TDP so they draw about 200W so I’d be using 600/1300W PSU. Am I missing something? I was thinking I could split an 8 pin to 2 6 pin but I know adapters are bad and tend to fail and ruin components.
