    What are your temps? When you insert 4 cards on this board, you dont have much air space, or did you use risers? All GPUs have a own pcie string? Which miner software u use? i hope you dont connect them with crossfire!

    16.1.1 installs the 15.x driver still...don't confuse crimson version with driver version they are different.

    Use Windows 10 with Crimson 15.12 and that's pretty hot! I like mine to be in 60's make sure you got room and turn fan speed up

    Actually, It's generally best to use Windows 7 to mine, because it has the most compatibility with the drivers. Also, window 10 handles information requests for the GPU differently than windows 7 does, and although it is better for a lot of things, it can result in lower hashrates for mining.

    Windows 10 here. 90 Mh/s via 3x 390s.

    I don't think that's valid anymore.

    @PCRGM LOL where do you get your information from? First hand experience? I have a whole bunch of Windows 10 rigs (upgraded from win7/8.1) and they have never run better or more stable. Crimson 16.7.2 drivers work just as fast as 15.12, with the addition of support for the newer 470/480 cards. To those of you who are looking for a newer alternative to 15.12, use 16.7.2. And Windows 10 is the best windows platform for mining IMO - and i've been mining for quite some time now.

    Of course, if you want the most reliable and trouble free setup, without having to bother about drivers and shit, use EthOS. You can literally setup a rig from scratch and have it up and running within 10 minutes. I have a bunch of those running on some rigs too, and they're running great, and with only 4GB of RAM too!
