    In case somebody else stumbles over this post, I found someone on the internet saying the old R9 cards draw as little as <10W through the PCI-E. Not sure if this is correct or not, but pretty wise to...

    That has so many different variables and is much easier to evaluate in a specific case study. However, AC units usually work in the efficiency range of 200-400%, so maybe that answers your question?

    This is most likely it. Looking into getting a 2nd PSU.

    Do you replace all capacitors in old power supplies for real? When do you consider a PSU old enough to do this?
  5. I knew somebody would catch on to my stupidity....

    I knew somebody would catch on to my stupidity. So after the first two melted, I tried to use the same cable in another connector albeit at very reduced power draw by underclocking. Needless to say,...

    Might have to..



    Uh, this might cause some issues as I was planning to expand with two more 290x'es. It's been running fine for the last few days though, but maybe it only runs fine until it...

    Let me get this straight...

    Judging from what Jonny is saying, would I be better off not using the Molex connectors at all and just solder the wires directly to the PCB?

    If I did that, what...

    UPDATE

    Not dead, just haven't checked this forum :D

    I've been running the 290x at 235W and the 390 at 290W. I realise now reading your posts that the 390 might be a bit daring.

    However, what...

    Also, is 300W through an 8 pin connector unreasonable?

    Would salvaging an old CX 850M be a totally bad idea?

    EDIT: Also, this video is stating the total opposite. Could you maybe find some literature that supports your statement?

    Isn't silicone an insulator? I might be a noob here, but to me it seems like he is recommending me to apply an insulator to my connector pins.

    EDIT: Nvm, didn't read it properly. He's giving some...

    Why so mean?

    EDIT: Misread, sorry. Thanks for the advice!


    So in my case, would it be stupid to salvage new connectors and wires from an old PSU? Of course making sure that the wires' 12V and...
  14. Melting 8 pin connectors on my 1500W PSU - WTF?!?

    Hey!


    I've been cryptomining a little on the side with an R9 290x and an R9 390.

    I'm using a SilverStone ST 1500 Strider (the 80+ Silver one) in my rig, so I believe I should have ample power...
