Other Thoughts: I have 4 ASICMiner Block Erupter Cubes running off this one power supply. All four are also overclocked.
I did have an issue with the PS shutting down due to an overload on one of the rails. Turns out I had 2 cubes attached to one rail. A closer look at the directions and I saw that I had to move one of the modular cables to a different connection point on the supply. The instructions indicate which plugs go to which rail and each cube needs it's own dedicated rail.
Very happy with the efficiency. I haven't done any actual measurements but I feel very little heat coming off the supply when I have a heavy load on it.
Even though it's very expensive I feel it is still a good investment for my ASIC miner needs over the next few years. That many years at over 80% load should yield some energy cost savings from the added efficiency.
I plan on buying a second one to power a pair of Antminer S1 Dual blade setups.
In addition, I have been a customer of Enermax for many years now and I have been very happy with the quality that I get. I will admit though there may be a recent DOA issue. In the nearly 10 years I have been buying enermax supplies it wasn't until recently that I started getting the occasional DOA supply.
Pros: The 6950 2G in general is a great buy if you want to do Crossfire. The added dual fans makes a pair of these great for overclocking. Keeping my OC at a mild 850/1350 for now. Fairly sure I'll be able to go higher.
Cons: Single CF Bridge connector.
Card does sag a little at the end due to it's length and heavy heatsink.
Other Thoughts: If you want Tri-Fire, make sure your third card has 2 bridge connectors like the Sapphire Toxic version.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I replaced my 7200rpm laptop drive and installed Windows 7 64 bit. Even though the laptop only supports Sata 1 the performance difference is major. For the first time in my 20 years of working on computers I can honestly say the Hard Drive is the fastest component.
Cons: Cost and Size of course but SSD is constantly getting faster, larger, and cheaper every year.
Other Thoughts: Don't think I'll ever buy a regular hard drive again unless I need some large storage. For boot drive and most applications this is a perfect solution.READ FULL REVIEW
