Recommend a PSU or 2 for this folding beast - Page 3

post #21 of 26
I know very little about folding, but if you can get a better or at least equally good yield with two separate Core i7 2600K computers, I'd go with that option. It'll probably cost less on the short term, and definitely cost less on the long term since you won't be using as much power.

Well most of the computing is done with the GPU so 1 2600k would be plenty, especially if you push it to 5ghz.

From a folder that uses 1600 watts 24/7, building 2 dedicated bigadv 2600k rigs is a lot more efficient. If you run linux you can get about 55k ppd at 4.8ghz. You can use a 400 watt ps for each machine no problem since they use around 300 watts at full load.

That's what I was thinking as well. Less heat, less power and for the money invested I could build 3 of them.

the antec hcp 1200 has all the dedicated connectors

but i'd consider a few connected jye jou units

HCP-1200... The AX1200 is a great performer aswell but 1.2kw is pushing it for a single rail.
