The AntMiner S9i 13.5 TH/sec model requires 101.5 Amps DC. Since power (watts) is equal to voltage multiplied by amps, the total power consumed by the AntMiner is 1218 watts (+/- 10%). Note, this is regardless of whether that's AC or DC, and regardless of voltage. 1218 watts is 1218 watts, or if you run it for an hour, 1.218 KW/hr. In my case, that works ...
A solution, but still not optimal for me, is on a Bitcoin Forum posting.
The server grade HP DPS-800GBA connectors are completely incompatible with FCI PWRLOPRO connector that my existing server-grade PFE1100-12-054RA PSUs connect to.
Wound up canabalizing the Coolmax ATX cables. Only needed to solder the ends of the cables to prep them for crimping into ...
In theory it should work. The Antminer D3+ uses less than 500 watts whereas a S7 power supply provides over 1000 watts.
You should make sure that the power supply is compatible in other respects. You need to make sure the S7 power supply and the D3+ that you are considering are made for the same voltages and frequency (which vary across the world)
I know you posted this a month ago, but i want to give my 2 cents worth.
If any device has several power connectors, USE THEM. The engineers who designed the product didn't just have extra connectors lying around they needed to use. They are there for an obvious reason.
The C1 pulls over 800 watts. That's double the current draw of the S3 (which is ...
I spoke directly with Bitmain. They said:
The connectors are divided into 4 groups as shown in below screenshot. Connect one of the connectors from each group to the PSU and all 4 hash boards can get power.
Pretty straightforward. It does indeed need a PSU with only four PCI-e connectors. Personally, I would just pick one slot, left or right, and make ...
AntMiner C1 Manual:
You must prepare your own ATX Power Supply. There are 4 PCI-e connectors for +12V DC
input and all are required.
That either means:
The manual is right, and some of these are not 12V connectors. This seems unlikely.
The manual is wrong, and you need eight 6-pin PCI-e connectors.
Is it possible to use two or more PSU's to power ...
