Thanks for clearing that up! I thought that was what he meant but wasn't sure.
Would you say running, say 6 R9 290s off a single mobo (990FX UD3) be a bad idea? I was hoping to set up 3 of them as a test, and if it gives the expected returns buy another 3, and maybe even build another 6-GPU system to mine 24/7, but if getting very cheap mobos and cpus to run lots of PC's is better I could do that instead.
Only disadvantage I can see is having to trick one power supply into turning on, which may involve some ghetto wiring (unless anyone has a better method).
