The New Temporary Setup, Powering 1GH/s+

This is one shelf with three systems, with a total of 17 graphics cards in total.

Another shelf with two systems, and a total of seven graphics cards in total. We now have 24 graphics cards so far.

This is the six GPU system with the very capable and budget ASUS PRIME H270-PLUS motherboard, with six GTX 1060s. The power draw from this system was less than 600W, and with some tweaking, it was just over 500W with more MH/s.

Another system, this time with four graphics cards attached.

The hottest system is the one with four GTX 10 series Founders Edition cards, with the GTX 1080, TITAN X(P) and two GTX 1080 Ti cards. With some tweaking, this system is a 128MH/s monster - but the fans need to be cranked. So I put a fan in front of them which helped immensely. Below that is another system with two GTX 1070s.

And finally, our Fiji-powered system with two AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics cards, and the super-small R9 Nano.

 

 

Total GPUs = 43

 

Now we're at 43 graphics cards, and we're cooking along with 1.1GH/s or so (1100MH/s). It fluctuates because there are so many cards - somewhere between 950MH/s and 1.2GH/s.
