After 12 hours of running with all the cards loaded, I experienced continuous crashing and BSOD.
I troubleshooted to the best of my ability by reloaded drivers, swapping cards on PCI slots, and even botting 1 card at a time to see where the problem was originating.
After all that work, my conclusion is that my power supply (1000w Platinum) can’t handle all the cards under 100% load.
On a side note, I ordered a XFX Vega 64 today…. pretty cool shit. Awesome hashrates from my research.
I am now considering my next move… is it an additional rig or scale out this one.
Also, I am not sure how the Vega card is going to play with my 1070 ti’s.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
My dream rig would be to have a proper frame with an all Vega build out but I don’t know how I can get my hands on that many cards.
I will keep you posted.
P.S. So you’re probably asking yourself what I’m doing with that extra 1070ti… I loaded it in my personal desktop and my 43″ 4K TV is running games at ultra without hesitation. Not sure if i will load up Claymore to run over nite but that probably makes sense.
