following this question, I'm on a quest to finding the most appropriate power supply for me.
The eXtreme Power Supply Calculator only goes up to 4 video cards and does not account for underclocks and overclocks of the gpu.
Here's a rundown of what I'll have:
AMD A4-5300 Trinity 3.4GHz
CORSAIR 2GB 240-Pin DDR3
Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB
And finally I'm planning on getting 6xRadeon HD 5870
I'm aiming at underclocking the processor around 2.0 ghz, no need for it to run higher than that. I'm aiming to underclock the gpu's ram to 160mhz, and overclock the core clock to 1100mhz. Those are my optimal clock speeds.
Now each card requires 2 PCIe cables from the power supply. Are there any power supplies capable of running those 6 cards while having all the necessary cables? Can I use 2 power supplies? If so how does it work?
Basically I'm looking for suggested watts needed to run 6 cards at those clock speeds and for power supplies suggestions.
Every bit of help is appreciated.
Edit: Before anyone tells me I can't fit 6 cards on that motherboard, I'll be using risers with a custom open air case, 3 16x risers and 3 1x to 16x risers. (Bitcoin mining does not require a lot of bandwidth, such 1x is more than enough)
