I don't know if you have a watt meter yet, but I came across this:

Basic kWh Meter 100A 120/240-volt, 3-wire, 60Hz EKM-25IDS - EKM Metering
$90

If the amperage is a concern they offer a universal design single phase/3 phase with a 5000A rating for $160

Hey nice find.  I have been looking for a hardwired meter which can do logging on 240V split phase (US) circuits.  Most tend to run $300 to $400 or more.

Watching.. I have a P45-UD3P w/Q9400 and it does VT- Don't know if that helps.
Have you loaded it up with KVM and tried out the VM device pasthru using VT-d to see how well it mines?



Have not had the need to yet it just has 6 HD5770's on it.  I might give it a try though. I am planning on switching that miner to linux soon maybe I will play around with it first. I will let you know.

Also where did u get the mining case I say in the back ground of the monsterplane?
It is a slightly redesigned version of the frame in the sticky at the top of the mining hardware section by Detritus. The design mods are by gigavps, to accommodate 2 PSUs.

Do you know where I could purchase one? Or do you have one to sell?

I don't have any to sell, but it isn't particularly difficult to build from parts at your local home center, as well as the plastic corner bits from the place in the Detritus thread. Or you could ask gigavps if he has any kits that he wants to sell you.

I thought you might be interested and rjk would as well, so killed 2 birds with one post. Smiley
Anyway you started it with the AP9571, I was looking for a way to monitor the wattage when this popped up.

I used this one:

Its wireless and just clamps around the main power legs.

You really need a Lambda Power Supply. All the 12V you'll ever need :-D

Shit son, that is expensive! I'd rather gang together a bunch of $100 PSUs, but the issue at the moment is that I don't know the correct pinout to connect to them with Sad
HP (EDIT sorry it's a Dell) 2360 watt blade server PSU.

I didn't post one, but that is a good idea. I have already called Dell, but they refused to give me spec sheets or any such data for the PSUs. How much do you want? I'd be wanting more than just the pins to turn it on, since I intend to use all the outputs properly. That means 3.3v, 5v, -12v, pwrgood, enable, and so forth.

Here you go, I spent several hours googling it to no avail.

Do you know what server uses that PSU?  If so might find some info in the manual for the server.

Dell M1000e blade servers, with 6 PSUs per server. I've looked at its manual, but no go (other than telling me that they also offer a 2700 watt version in the same formfactor).

Have you opened the PSU up yet?  Maybe tracing the connectors to where they go inside the PSU might help you determine what circuit turns it on.

Using connectivity tester or multi-meter might help with that (w/ unit unplugged to avoid destroying it).  Doubt you will be that lucky but seeing for example two pins connected to a relay or micro controller likely is the "clue" you need.

That particular PSU only has 12V output :-)

I'm fairly sure I saw a 5v bus when I had it open.

Yeah I've opened it up, but it is far more compact than most PSUs and tracing things is extremely difficult. Several heatsinks in the way that I am loathe to remove because it could cause thermal issues if done incorrectly.

Arent these just generic redundant PSU modules?
Pretty much.
