    Hey folks.
    I mostly run 1070s with 7 cards per rig.
    Trying to find a good server psu that can push this because I am planning an expansion. Starting in a few weeks, I will have access to 208v power so I was hoping to could track down a single 1200w server psu that can run a rig with 7 of these and maybe also the motherboard too.

    Since I will finally have more than 120v I think this should be doable.

    Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks!
    So is there a way to run the motherboard off the breakout board?
    Do you recommend it or should I use a nano psu?

    Get a PicoPSU and power it off the server psu.

    question sort of unrelated, but what is 208V? If household US is 110/115/120 or 220/230/240, where is 208 coming from?

    208v is common commercial power used in the US. I plan to run 220v psu's off this.

    208v is made from 3 Phase Y when you bridge between phases. Home service is typically single phase.

    Keep in mind these are only 900W at 110v, and the fans are annoyingly loud when PSU under significant load.

    Who that is serious about mining is using 110-120v... secondly, reread his second to last line.

    Most hobby miners reading this forum will be on 110v if they're in North America. Anyway my post is intended for everyone else here.

    Yeah, not many are getting 240v put in by electricians or using dryer outlets to power mining setups. It just isn't easily accessible to most.

    Using a dryer outlet or a range outlet isn't the best idea... I converted a dedicated circuit in my server closet a home to 240v and changed the plugs, etc... Also had to buy a new UPS for the media server and switches, but, oh well.
