Hello and welcome everybody

I am wondering what is the power supply for AntMiner S7

And i don't know is this power supply can be used
https://www.amazon.com/AntMiner-APW3-12-1600-Supply-Bitcoin-Miners/dp/B013WW2YWE




Or this one

https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-SuperNOVA-Modular-Warranty-120-G2-1600-X1/dp/B00MMLUIE8




And after is the small wires that connect power supply with AntMiner S7 come with power supply its self or i have to buy them  separately

As long as you have 208-240VAC for power then the Bitmain supply is hands down best choice. All PCIe power leads needed (10x) are already there.

If you only have 110v power then prolly the other should work BUT you will probably need some PCIe splitters to have enough plugs. ALL 10 of the PCIe power connections MUST be used unless the s7 has been under volt/freq modified to lower its hunger to less than around 900W! Typical steady state power load is around 1100 to over 1300w depending on what batch it is and the speed.

In the case of AXT power supplies ALWAYS look at how the 12v power is distributed. Ideally it will have just one rail that feeds all however, MANY have 2 or more rails. For those one must be sure that each card is only fed from 1 RAIL!

This is covered everywhere.. but you won't need the 1600 I'd buy an evga 1300 for a noob though. Much easier..

You want a PSU that is capable of running your miner comfortably. So if you miner requires 1000w to run then you want around 1200-1300 PSU.

You NEVER want to get a 1000w PSU for a 1000w Miner. Always allow yourself plenty of space. Most PSU reach peak efficiency (rated efficiency) at around 50-60% load.

You've bought an Antminer and haven't done any research wjatbyou need or how it works?!  That's worrying considering this thing could burn your house down if something were to go wrong.

It uses around 1250w. Personally I would get the 1600 psu as it has some "space" power wise so you're not running it 100% like you would if you bought a 1300w PSU.

For those in the U.S., here's a possible great deal.  The Thermaltake 1500w titanium PS is $280 at BH Photo Video with a Expected In Stock date of 18 Dec.  They charge your card when it's shipped so no worry about a delay.  I don't think anyone will find a similar PS for this price range, although the Corsair 1500w and EVGA 1600w T2 are rated better in online reviews.  When they were in stock on Amazon, they were around $420.

That is the same as the one you linked to in your first post!!

You can get the newer version cheaper from Bitmain Directly. But yes that will be sufficient to power your miner.
