Very very nice ! I'll consider buying one since the 1060 is just overprice in for now. I guess the power connector problems has been solved ?

Yes use new amd driver either 16.7.2 or 16.3.2

I'm finally wondering if it is a nice idea. Look : R7 370 does 15 MH/s and consume 110W. I costs 160€ (American prices are different and pounds are for a little people). An RX 480 costs 260€ and does 24 MH/s. Consumption should be around 130W. You have more hashrate for the same money with R7 370. Consumption is not the most important for me. I'd like to get your thoughts on this.

I like running windows 7 the asus boards form the 170 series were okay.

but my favorite z170 board is this one

I got this on sale for 110 from newer:
It fits 4  rx 480's on the board.

Hey Phil how's the heat with four video cards so close together.  I've had it with PCIe risers.  I've gone through so many bad risers and countless hours troubleshooting them that I'm pretty fed up with them.  I'm probably not going to build another rig any time soon but I'm keeping my options open.

well it is all 480's  I use 540 watts to get 95mh

I am using a corsair ax760 plat.

I will take some photos.

this board is really good in an open case.

four card rig room is 84f




the secret is the spacers from the hdmi jacks  of the video cards they allow for air to reach the fans


infra red gun reads 43 to 49 c




hottest card is 72c   worst hasher is 22h as it is the one that drives the display




those cards are way to close to each other for my liking

The power consumption has been lowered to 60% or less of stock. That helps. Would not want to over clock in that arrangement.

i guess phil you really hate risers, with those setup, they are only good for bringing problems

but with those temp you have there, it must be also cold there

I'm finally wondering if it is a nice idea. Look : R7 370 does 15 MH/s and consume 110W. I costs 160€ (American prices are different and pounds are for a little people). An RX 480 costs 260€ and does 24 MH/s. Consumption should be around 130W. You have more hashrate for the same money with R7 370. Consumption is not the most important for me. I'd like to get your thoughts on this.

 Comparing to ANY R7-series card is a non-starter, those aren't even LOW END cards by mining standards and are fairly inefficient when you factor in total system power consumption.

i think you did not calculate the mobo memory hdd prices.

I already has two full set of all the components, so I don't have to take it into account. One guy pointed in my thread that I shouldn't mix cards from different series. I guess that I'll have to fill my R9 380 platform with R7 370 and then put RX 480 in the new one.

84-87 f

these rx 480 cards are amazing  temps are 72c 68 c 68 c 65 c pulling 94mh at 540 watts
using a plat cosrsair ax760



i mix cards i have a rx 480 and a r9 390  running as I type they do 56mh and use 480 watts  the 390 is a power hog get 32h the 480 gets 24mh

default is a r9 390 + rx 480

rig 1 is 4 rx 480's 3 are sapphires one is a diamond.

rig 7 is two r9 390s'

That is pretty amazing.  With cards that close I would be worried about doing that but you're proving that it works and it seems those little hdmi caps are doing their job lol.

Is it 'safe' to keep the kill-a-watt meter plugged in 24/7 or should I be removing it from the circuit when I'm done fiddling with voltages and speeds?

It is once again, magically, on sale for $110.  I've been lamenting purchasing it since you've pointed it out.  Tonight, I finally bit and went to pull the trigger.  To my surprise, I see it's back down to $110 from $165.  Made my day!  If anyone else is on the fence, this may help decide.

that's impressive, it might be that the spacer you put there, help a lot, also the undervolting may be a factor for those low temp

I use this for the ssd


https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BO4IUS4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


good value some overkill  but this style for your ssd is the way to go.

no wires repeat 0 wires fast etc


and this psu is on a good price as a refurbished.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139119&cm_re=corsair_ax760-_-17-139-119-_-Product


ram  well to each his own on ram


i use these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104674&cm_re=ddr4_ram-_-20-104-674-_-Product

and these.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UFBZOVE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


2x 8gb sticks per mobo.

and I go for a better cpu this is good. please  note the T

https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Corp-BX80662I36100T-6100T-Processor/dp/B015XEXILK/ref=sr_1_1?

110 for the mobo
  65 for the ssd
105 for the psu
  70 for the ram
130 i3 6100t        the i5 6500t,  the i5 6600t ,the i7 6700t all good

470 for the pc setup

I like to use windows 7 pro  which make sure it is 64 bit.   this is a trouble free rig for me  10-15 days up time
then windows will sometimes force an update.  fair warning if you do use windows 7 pro on this board  the first updates need to be segmented in four or five parts of 40 updates as the first update is 200 parts.


and my garage is running 84f to 87f  with all the cards at good temps. 65c to 72c

this rig is really good for the rx 480. reference cards.

 it was also good for the nanos  but you needed to crank fans ups a lot as the nanos run hotter.

What do you mean no wires?
How do you connect SATA data port on mobo + power? Use some kind of adapter?
Sorry if it's something obvious, I never used one of these before Smiley

It is easy peasy bro.

there is a slot on the mobo.


here is a screen shot from newegg and I  pointed out the m2 style ssd location
