hello, I am just about to get 1 UNIT Avalon Miner. I know they do not offer PSU so I was searching other source to buy it. I found several cheap ones, can you please see and recommend which ones will be good ?   I don't want to pay more then 50 USD).    also do I need to buy avalon controller to run one UNIT ?

My simple tip is that if you have 220V or greater mains voltage, go with sidehack kit (HP DPS-1200 + breakout board and cables).

DPS1200 PSU Kit (S7/S9 compatible)

This kit includes one DPS-1200FBA 1200W-rates server PSU, one GekkoScience DPS812 board, and ten 18" PCIe double-ended 16AWG cables. Kit pricing is $80, a savings of around 10% over buying everything individually.
The DPS-1200FBA PSU is rated to deliver 900W from 120VAC and 1200W from 200-240VAC, but it's capable of better than that - I have run S4+, S7 and S9 miners off this supply. If you know what you're doing, voltage is internally adjustable from 11.8V-12.8V

PRICE: $80 each


If you have 110V / 120V mains voltage, EVGA 1300W power supply is a good choice.

You need the AvalonMiner controller.

Hello thanks a lot, any cheaper version around 50$ USD I can buy from amazon or ebay?   so I must buy Avalon Controller ? for every miner? or?  EVGA 1300W is over +250 USD too expensive   need more options

someone warned that 94% Platinum 1200W Power Supply Kit for (2) A4 Dominator Litecoin Miners 110-240v   

1200 W might not be ideal to run Avalon 741

I tried running two 741's with voltage set to 0 off the 2400 watt psu from parallel miner. It ran for a couple hours before glitching out. It was incredibly hot to the touch. Running one avalon per psu is obviously not a problem, but two would not work for me.

Guys. What about server PSU ?
I have ordered Dell 1200 MB A models. They have 80 Plus platinum certification. And output is 1400W.
Are they good for Avalons?
