I ordered a few of the new Biostar TB250-BTC PRO motherboards
with 12 x PCI-E slots and I'm just wondering how much electricity this rig is going to consume. I'll be running 12 RX470 8GB cards and Intel Celeron G3900 (rated to consume 54w) on this system. As reported by the mining community, a rig with 6 RX470s consumes just below 800w of power so just to stay on the safe side, my idea was to feed the motherboard, it's components and 6 GPUs with a 1000w power supply and the remaining 6 GPUs with another 850w power supply. Now would that suffice?
