Could anyone tell me what the BTU rating of a server with 4 R9 290X cards would be?   I am able to meter the electricity used, currently 1.4Kw, but I don't know how to measure the heat output.

Is it a wrong rule of thumb to estimate 4* wattage used for btu requirements or is this overkill?


so if your 290X uses 300 W each then 1200 Watts * 4 = 4800 BTU so 5000 BTU would be ample?

According to this page:

http://www.rapidtables.com/convert/power/Watt_to_BTU.htm

If your hardware dissipates 1400 W, that is the same as 4777 BTU/h

Cant you just build a liquid cooling system? Because your going to mine 24/7 and its going to draw alot of heat into those beasts.

AMD Radeon R9 290 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550~600 Watt power supply unit.
AMD Radeon R9 290 Crossfire - On your average system the cards require you to have a 800 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

I know the more the better, but think You could lower that for at least 10% without any issuess. And from my research PSU price skyrockets drastically between 500 and 600 (at least at my country)
