Ethereum update: how to optimize power consumption
hey guys, lurking through this sub I’ve seen people running 6 rx 480 with a 850w power supply. I have two rigs with 4 gpus each, both have 850w PSU although different brand, One is a Corsair AX860 Platinum and the other is an EVGA 850 BQ Bronze.
The one with the Corsair PSU runs 4 gpu “mostly” without issues. It runs for 22 hours sometimes days and it crashes. If I try to add another GPU (5 total) one of the gpus doesn’t mine. The rig with the EVGA PSU only runs 3 gpus. I’ve mixed gpus/risers to see if any has issues and they seem fine.
