Hi there crypto experts,

Recently i've been experimenting with the new B250 Mining Expert Motherboard. Untill now the maximum number of cards you can run on the board is 16. This setup needs 8x AMD GPU and 8x the Nvidea P106 card.
I've been able to run a maximum of 13 AMD gpu's on the board. When i plug in 14th card the motherboard doesn't show any HDMI video output anymore, the cards do get power & fan's run.
Asus promised to deliver a driver update before the end of december 2017, the driver should enable the use of 19 AMD GPU's on the board.


Does anyone has any news or also experimented with the MOBO, let us know what you think! We want to get the 19 cards running asap.

BBT has run a number of live streams using the board. He was able to run 21 cards in Windows 10 using the latest Crimson Relive drivers and PCI-E splitters.

From his testing:

  • 19+ GPU rig is possible in Windows 10
  • A maximum of 13 AMD cards are supported
  • AMD Drivers 17.10.2 required for more than 8+ AMDs
  • Nvidia P106 mining cards are required for more than 13 cards

Coyn,

You might want to take a look at "Bits Be Trippin" YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/BitsBeTrippin and there Website BitsBeTrippin.com

BBT Carter took 3 stabs at the B250 and concluded with VLOG #65 with 21 GPUs.  Videos are a little long but informative

VLOG #65-21+GPUs working in Windows
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miUoqnUqk9M

VLOG #64-16 GPUs working in Windows
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPsgcKjBXCQ

VLOG #63-ASUS B250 Mining Expert
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-ZEPjoFh2I

I hope this helps

Thanks for the tips guys!
I've watched the video's, but if i'm right he does not use AMD GPU but a mix of both.

Still my point, drivers not yet here for 19 AMD cards.

But from what I have contemplating about getting one of these boards and maxxing it out with the 19 gpu after this firmaware upgrade,
Wouldn't overload the board at some point with it and all it's components running 24/7?

No, it depends on many things, eth mining uses no cpu power whatsoever, equihash on the other side does and it requires a little more powerful cpu other than a celeron.

Does anybody know if this motherboard already supports 19 amd cards?
