1  Bitcoin / Hardware / Multi PSU S7 Question on: November 04, 2015, 12:11:01 PM
Hello,
I'm sorry if this is buried in the 300+ pages of the S7 page, search wasn't very helpful.  Trying to power an S7 without having to wire my home with 220.  Since the Gekko people are sold out for now, I'm considering using my existing PSU and buying a second one. 

I see from Dogie's review that I need 10 PCIE ports.  I currently have a CX750M which claims to have 4x ports, but really has 2 ports and 2 splitter cables.  So, should I go with something that has 6 ports, like the AX760 or something with 8 ports like the RM1000?  How do I know these PSU's actually have the number of ports they claim to have, vs half and splitter cables?  Is there just a better single PSU I should just buy for a similar cost?

Thanks!
Mark

Hello,
Based on a short off topic exchange, it looks like there is some confusion about the best ways to hook up some of the current generation miners to popular power supplies.  I'll be happy to edit this post as people provide information to provide a place to find this information quickly.  Please don't limit it to what I've got here, feel free to add other miners and other PSUs, as well as helping me fill in the info correctly here.  Also, most of my experience came on BFL and S1s, so please correct me if I've mistated something.
