    Default Mining rig

    Hey guys,
    Been awhile since I posted. Got a question about a clients new mining build.
    This is a very lean machine, A-6 APU, one HD, couple fans, burner for OS install, no OCing on the APU.
    The GPU's will consist of either 2x7870's or 2x270's and yes they will be OCed.

    The bad news is he will not pony up for a good PSU
    He has narrowed it down to these two contenders based on price, warranty and 6pin connectors.
    He WILL NOT listen to reason, so which one of these lame ducks should he go with?

    Or if there is any better recommendations at the same price point, I'm open to them.
    Thanks guys!

    The Seasonic will hold two such cards with no issue. Well, except for needing some 4-pin peripheral -> 6-pin PCI-E adapters. Stay away from Tt TR2 series in general. Far away.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    The SeaSonic is the far better of the two.

    Thanks guys!
    Had a feeling that Tt was still shit and that SS is still The PSU to go with.
    I informed my client and he has pulled the trigger on the S12II.
    Much appreciated guys.
