Need to Check-out: Ultra x4 or Thermaltake Toughpower

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a good power supply to power my GPU Farm. I going to be running.



Tigerdirect has the Ultra x4 1600w or the Thermaltake Toughpower 1350w. Which one would be able to power my farm 24/7. Thanks

Firstly, the motherboard you have there will not fit 5 video cards. You only have room for 4. There are 5 slots but since each video occupies two slots, one PCIe x16 slot will be obstructed by the card in the slot before it.

On the PSU, you don't need anywhere near 1600W to power this. A good 850W unit would be fine.

Yea thats why i am going to use a custom rack like the one made by another member:



So 850w should be good to keep all the cards running 24/7?

850W would actually be a little on the low side.


Try the NZXT Hale90 1000W.

I think 850w would be okay, especially with an Athlon II. Four GTX 460's would probably consume about 600-650w and the remaining power is more than enough for the rest.

No harm in going for a 1000w though, it isn't exactly unreasonable.

EDIT: Wait, five? I misread that as four.

Yeah, 1000w would be better.

Ah well, if you really are able to connect all those 460s, I would agree that 850W may not be quite enough for 5. I had based that recommendation on my assumption that you wouldn't be using 5 because of the motherboard not fitting 5. So then 1000W will be perfect.
