Thinking about adding graphics cards to these machines... Can't really decide.

Aren't they too short?  Or do you know of a good low profile one?

2. You said you have three GPUs per PSU but risers on only one?  Shouldn't you be matching the 3 GPUs with same 3 connected risers to each PSU? Ideally the risers and boards should each be on the same rail of each PSU or it could cause some issues for any board that would end up being connected to two different rails or worse two separate PSUs. Assuming you don't have it setup this way, are your pigtails on the risers getting warm?

I have my dual PSU setup just like his. For my 5x 280x setup, one PSU powers 3 cards, and the other PSU powers 2 cards, the MB, the HDD, and all 5 risers. Never had an issue.

Someone else was talking about how you can't do it cuz if they cross, you somehow get 24V running through your card? Or MB? I don't remember, but that's BS. 12V is 12V, and the PSUs aren't being run in series in any way.

Someone else was talking about how they can get out of "phase" or "sync", but since ours are running off the same breaker, and are the same brand/make/model, there's no way they could unless one of the PSUs just shits the bed.

TL;DR There's no issue.

Tips? 1crazy8pMqgwJ7tX7ZPZmyPwFbc6xZKM9

since GPU mining for scrypt coins isn't bitcoin, aren't posts here about it in the wrong place? shouldn't they be posted in the altcoins section? So of course GPU mining is looked down on. it is either unprofitable or being talked about in the wrong place. (Bitcoin Snob here)

Theoretically they count as a mining rig. So they aren't off topic.

Mining on an auto-exchanging scrypt multipool, I get daily payouts in Bitcoin.  Roll Eyes
So I was not really aware that I am technically not a Bitcoin miner any more, until you pointed it out.  Cry
Sniff, sob, cry...

UPDATE: But as Beastlymac observed, still a mining rig, right ?

It is indeed a mining rig, the alt forum is just too much of a shitstorm of clonecoins and worthlesscoins to have a meaningful discussion of hardware there.

When I started getting hardware errors and posted in this subforum about it my thread got moved and had an argument with a mod via PM and he ended up telling me to repost it in this forum with mhs listed instead of khs...

And looking at pictures of Antminers or Avalons sitting on shelves is boring.  I love checking out pics of these behemoth GPU rigs chewing up electricity and spitting out heat Smiley  Maybe these are the monster trucks of crypto currency mining!

absolutely. Stop giving a flying fuck, this thread was all about GPUS when I hit the board 2012. Fuck it, I still post GPU stuff. It's still a rig, it's still to the spirit of this thread - I found it pretty lame when people came up with lame asics, block erupters and stuff. There is little to no work on these machines to be found, hence no need to upload images of it. I loved the custom cases and crazy fan builds on chairs, let's not ban gpus from this thread.

I agree that GPUs should be banished from this thread since they are no longer viable for bitcoin mining to make a profit.
Glory to ASIC!

Sorry to burst your bubble but there are distinct and valid reasons to be using GPU in 2014. Or were you trolling?

Some of these rigs people are posting images of cost over $6000, do you really think that they would go to great effort to design and construct these custom systems and not do a few calculations to prove they are viable and profitable?

Looks like a Juniper.. seen better days. Mine makes a nice burning smell if the memory is overclocked too much. The slip-off cooler just begs for upgrading: like this huge dell workstation CPU fan..

It's a Radeon 7770 ;p It's developed a significant coil whine recently so I think her days are numbered.

GPUs are no longer viable for profiting with BTC, so you are either stupid wasting money on power for your rig, OR you are mining altcoins.
