Hi all,

Since we have received word that the Corsair HX850 is not recommend for use on the knc miner, can those who are currently hashing away with a knc miner that have not had any issues with blown caps post which psu they are using?

I think this would be helpful for those who are still searching for the right psu to use as this would certainly be reassuring knowing that someone else is successfully using a certain model/brand.

I went with Coolermaster V850....I saw that was the product line they were using and decided to go with what they were doing.

Seems like a good decision....I think after googling Corsair problems that you guys using anything from them with a KNCMiner are crazy.

I WAS using an HX850 but luckily enough I had a TX850 on my gaming rig that I'm now using on my Jupiter.

Seasonic makes the HX850... and dozens of other brands.  Seasonic PSUs are considered to be the best by many PC enthusiasts.

Here's a current, comprehensive list of who makes your PSU...

I have a Corsair AX860 waiting for my Mercury.  It's made by Flextronics so I'll feel safe using it.

What is wrong with the Corsair HX850? I contacted the KnCMiner support team, they told me I can use that.  Huh

Well you obviously contacted them more than a week ago.  Things have radically changed since then.   Wink

In theory yes but I think you'll want (or need) more headroom in practice.  I wouldn't go with less than 850 for each Jupiter.

I have always thought that the AX860 was made by Seasonic and the AX860i by Flextronics.

This is what I have waiting for my Jupiter
Seasonic PLATINUM-1000 ATX 1000 Power Supply



http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00608FKN8/ref=ya_aw_oh_pit

I also have this waiting (also got it from amazon) *bonus* paid for it with bitcoin via Gyft Smiley


Does anyone know or have link explaining what was the problem with that Corsair? Might it be a problem that also affects other power supplies?

Oh god, don't say that!

*edit
After a quick Google, I think you're right.  Hopefully the HX850 and the AX860 are completely different PSUs.  I might not take my chances and just return mine and upgrade to the 860i.

DAMN!

HX750
