Can you tell me the state? whats up with the secrecy? I'm just curious about how energy price around the globe... not the specific location of the farm.

No need to take offense, but you'll understand that location and advantage is a big deal, so while it's not a secret at all, I don't post city/state typically. For reference it's in the Northeast US.

Love the modified server PSU, I've considered using them, but concerned over a potential increase in fire hazard. I know those dells have pre-configured kits, but didn't know if it can cause potential issues as I read a couple people saying they had hot wires to the touch.

Just went to feel the wires and they are all (normal) not hot not cold.

I like the Server PSU because its cheap and its does a nice 62.4Amps 12v+.

You can see in the pics crazyates posted that we're using an IBM 2000w PSU. Three delta fans on the side keep it nice and cold without having to open the case. 1 PSU feeds 4 AntMiners nicely.

As far as hot wires, we had an AntMiner on the test bench running on a 750w ATX PSU but had a cheesy molex to PCIe adapter that ended up putting all the load onto just 1 pair of about 18awg wire. When we noticed hot cables and the yellow turning brown, we moved to the correct set of cables (PSU is modular). Not only are the cables now running nice and cool, but it's also pulling 30watts less from the wall!!!

if you gave it another minute you wouldve seen a nice little blaze Smiley

I used one of those before that was a 8pin ATX -> 6 pin PCI that was rated 18AWG (4 wires for each polarity, or <50W each shouldnt be a problem at all) which burtst into a small fireball within 3 minutes of being installed and switching on the PSU.

don't rely on ebay cables for mining rigs - they are not designed for large loads

24" PCI-E cables with 16AWG wires and stripped ends - great for server PSU mods, best prices https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=563461 also selling 6" M-F-M PCIe splitters and PCIe-PCIe

It had been running like that for 3 days....  Shocked Shocked Shocked #woops

And these weren't cheap ebay cables. They were the PSU's own modular adapter for the molex plugs, and then using a Gigabyte 280x's twin molex to PCIe 6pin. Lesson learned!

Thats why you lasted 3 days and not 3 minutes - gigabyte used some reasonably good cables.

stuff from ebay/china generally doesn't

Those things are a trap. IMHO they shouldn't be included with mid or high end GPU.

I believe everyone has once again reinforced why I don't use the server PSUs, although they are really the best bang for the buck. Not worth the worry in my unmanned site.

Huh? The wire/heat/potential fire issues we were having were with an ATX PSU. Our modified server PSUs have never given us any issues. They're rock solid!

I love mine that work - but ive spent way too much time testing some that dont, particularly the dps-800gb supplies. 2 kicked out on me, 3 fail to work with the 31+34 pin mod, and the 3 that work still are great powerhouses Smiley

If wires are hot, they are probably not thick enough. Hmm, third hit says 18Gauge is good for 16 amps.. would not want to run more than 5 though that. This pages seems to agree, but qualifies that with a maximum length.

I would put the practical limits (based on experience) around:

18AWG (Quality product such as PSU cables) - 10A maximum, 8A is safe
18AWG (chinese mlex adapters and other flimsy wire) - 6A maximum, 5A is safe

16AWG - 15A max, 12A is safe
14AWG - 22A max, 17A is safe

generally my antminers use the 14AWG wire in order ot reduce clutter and simplify things. The wires get slightly warm when using only 2 pairs of wire for an S1, but probably only 30C or so which is quite safe
