I mean the CPU technically shouldn't be drawing much when mining but at the same time that's a pretty powerful CPU so idk. Is this purley a mining rig you have? If so I would take that 4770k out and put it in a gaming machine or sell it. You defiantly don't need it.

Sometimes you have to do siome trickery to make them work like you want to. But overall they are the cheapest motherboards to mine 6 cards on. We use them all the time. Both H61 and H81. Defenitely not a great mobo. But for it's task and considering its price I am happy with them.

I have used many ASRock motherboards and have never had a single issue with any of them. Not too sure where the hate comes from. Ever since Sandy bridge they have been pretty decent.

@power usage; I have 3 280X mining with a celeron and 2*2GB ram and it draws 925 watts from the wall. I would personally NOT suggest doing a quad mining rig with a single 1200 Watt PSU. Either get a beefy one of two smaller ones (which will probably be cheaper as well). But each to his own. I like a bit of overhead power in systems that draw this much.

Agreed, i have three 280x's on a Coolermaster V1000. Mining scrypt it pushes close to the limit. Waiting on another PSU to come to add the fourth 280x. 2x Corsair CS750m.

4 280X, each eats 210w from the psu here...undervolted to 1.14v running at 1035/1500mhz and netting 740kh/s.

Undervolt guys.

i know 4770k is useless but i dont use my pc anymore and changed it to mining rig.

i think wall reading is higher than the actual psu usage but i am not sure.

i dont know about the 280x power usage but as i said 2x r290 (undervolted) +4770k+msi mpower max,24gb ram+2ocz ssd+3x noctua NF-A14 PWM uses 680-690w from the wall.

Wish it were possible in linux buddy, really do. :/

The only way I've found is a very sketchy looking process HERE and it doesn't even seem to incorporate any r9 series cards.

You guys still mining PTS?

IS mining PTS the same as BTS? I'm confused... so if I continue mining PTS is this just BTS?

Edit: Well, I switched three machines back to PTS. I'm hopeful for a turnaround on PTS/BTS or whatever it is. And I just like this miner better. I hate Ypool though, so as soon as they go down, I'm switching back.

Undervolt guys.

To undervolt them you would need to flash the bios correct?
I mean I cannot see the voltage in MSI Afterburner
