Well I am in the same boat, I have 8 RX 580 and I am planning to run the following PSU's. Will this work? I am getting a little nervous that I may not have enough power between the two.

  1. Silverstone Tek 1500W ATX12V/EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Silver Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply (ST1500)


  2. EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2 80+ GOLD, 1000W Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI and Crossfire Ready 10 Year Warranty Power Supply 120-G2-1000-XR

    Would anyone know if this will be able to handle my 8 rx 580 cards?

Hey man, I guess you are looking for a 300 watts for not paying the big bucks eh? :/. So here are my two cheap recommendations under 70$:


Option 1 is a common computer PSU which would be able to run your card for a big 40$. Option 2 is less common but amazing for mining, It's a 750w Platinium power supply from hp, really cheap for the power and modular up to a couple GPUs!

It has 4 pcie x1 slots and 2 pcie x16 slots, you use pcie risers for each card. They all operate at x1 and they are all independent from one another. They do not work as a "team". I could actually run 1 more GPU off the m.2 slot but I hear its hit or miss, wanted to play it safe.

There's no point in mining ZEC with a graphic card. You won't be able to compete with ASICs on the network. Mining Ycash ( r/ycashtalk ) or another GPU-mineable fork of Zcash, or any other GPU-friendly coin, would make a lot more sense.

As for LP cards, you won't have a lot of choice. The best you can find atm is a GTX 1650 LP from MSI or Gigabyte I guess.

Would this work. That board is expensive in Canada.
I am only running an i3-6100 with 8gb ram. My next build is going to be a much better ryzen 5 1600, so I don't want to spend more than I have t.

There are a bunch of switches setup in different miners to see this. If you want to see exactly how much you're pulling from the wall socket, get you a wattage meter.

I use this one:

Gives you a bunch more data that the switches in the miners don't give, like Kw/h, amps, etc. The amps is good information so if you run multiple rigs you can calculate if you are pushing the amps of your circuit breaker switch or not.

Works great with no issues and it was cheap.

Zotac has a low profile GTX 1650 too. On the AMD side there is a RX 550 LP from MSI but that's about it.

You won't find a more recent/powerful GPU within this form factor.
