Getting my mini doge miner in the mail soon. What power supply should I order with the intention on buying 1 or 2 more box miners in the future? I’ve been looking at 1000W which looks to be safe for 3 of these box miners as I purchase more. Here is a link to what I’m looking at now for best price ect. EVGA has the mother board jumper plug included and the 10 year warranty is a +. Any input or links to a better price or power supply is welcome. Thanks in advance
@WingNasty I think too small for 4 unless one is an st box which only draws about 60 watts. Don’t forget goldshell normally says their miners power draw is + or - 5%, so add that 5% into total power pulled when calculating the 80% rule.
Ok thanks. I think I will get the 1000W to be on the safe side of running 3 when I get more. Who knows if they will come out with something new that draws more power then these do. I wonder if they will come out with box bitcoin miners or something like that in the future?
Do you plug your small box miners ps into 120 or do you use the 240 v? I’m wondering when I get my st boxes and mini doge if I can put them in the house and plug into 120
Or if I need to put it on the 240 pdu with the big boys in the garage.
Mine are scattered around in the house on 120v. 3 in basement on an 850w ps, 2 are solo with the Goldshell single ps, and 2 in my office with an 850w ps. My heat has barely kicked on as these are in rooms I use most.
If you have the option, in my experience, 240V is always better. The unit will perform at its best at 240V and less resistance. That PSU that JoeJoe recommended is fine for both 120V and 240V but I’d go 240V given the option. Good luck
There are more options on Parallel miners 1000wt as well. Platinum effeciency server type psus are so great. I run two HPs, so happy with them! 94%+ efficient. I think on server psus you can do more than 80% of maximum power safely, but I am not an expert.
