Don't bother, get a Corsair 850 or 1000 W PSU.  They're modular, single rail, usually 80% or higher efficient and just overall reliable.

That thing might blow up on you, especially if you try to overclock the Ants.

Thermaltake has worked pretty good for me, too.  Even had one that died after a few hours (pretty sure it was a delayed DOA), but none of the hardware attached had any damage.  Just for the love of Satoshi don't use some random one off eBay.  You may save a few bucks, but you'll be crying when it blows up along with your miner.

You can potentially overload one rail if it's 2.  Power draw is balanced on a single rail.

Corsair RM 850 is fine for 2 overclocked Ant's

I've been running 2 overclocked ants on a single Corsair RM 850 for a few days now.  2 oc's ants only draw about 400 watts each on a gold-rated psu.  I was unsure of overclocking 2 ants on a 850 watt psu before.

I have 5 ants, 2 pairs on a RM850 and another on a RM750. I agree about the comment - if you lose one PSU you lose 2 ants, probably get a spare in at some point.

Many companies sell superior psus to corsair these days, I would take Seasonic, super flower leadex, xfx black (made by seasonic iirc), Fractal Design R3 any day over all but the AX corsair supplies (some of the ax ones are/were made by seasonic ;P)

I didn't want to start a new topic since I had a question so related:

I have this power supply, it is brand new. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007WLRJCC/

Will it be fine for powering 2 Antminer S1's without any problems? Its a single rail and 1000w. Its not the most efficient rated PSU, but any other issues? Thanks for any advice!

Rail 1 +12V: 83.3 A

just that simple 60+ amps on 12v rail and you can do 2 overclocked s1's

Less than 60 per rail -- good luck with that....

this works

BTW the enermax is 4 rails amp each  but it is very clearly marked  so it is okay to use.  bitmain uses it in their new s-2's


multiple rail is fine if you understand how to hook it up.


I was really annoyed at the fractal psu's I got them for 200 each the are dead dead dead.  and the seller is fucking around with my return.

And make sure the P/S has 4 PCIE cables off that rail, 1 cable to each ant... Not one cable with jumper splice end.

Yes, 100a single rail, you only need 90+a so it is below maxed out and may last awhile if you keep it cool.
8pcie leads is good, that is what we use for quad sli for game dev, however I demand Corsair...

XFX would not honor a warranty on a MB that was only a month out of date.
EVGA MSI GigaByte ASrock all have had no issues with me usually sending a newer board if the old one I have is no longer available.
I will never forget that, and refuse to own XFX because of it. XFX support was impersonal, and could give a damn atti-dude.
