I just ordered some R4s and I have an APW3 on a 220 outlet, can I run 2 R4s on that one power supply?

I have a couple of APW3s so is running one power supply for each R4 better?

Should I just bite the bullet and get an APW5?

A single R4 can pull between 845-921W, the APW3 is rated to 1600W regardless of input voltage.

So one Psu per R4 until an APW5 can be ordered, thanks.

You can check my sig for some very good alternatives to the APW5 as well.  I have a DPS-4K PSU that could power 4x R4's, or the IBM 2880W that could power 3 of them.

I'm looking for the most efficient setup for 2 R4s in a home on 220 so any insight is welcome on better PSUs

IBM 2880W is not suitable for home due to noise.  DPS-4K is overkill for 2 units, but leaves room for expansion if you wanted to go that route.  Economically speaking it's a toss-up (in comparison to APW5), but there's nothing wrong with Bitmain's PSU's. If you have APW3's use them!
