A heads up to those wanting to use PCIe splitters/switches.
Well, after 129 miner restarts in SMOS I've finally gotten my 8 GPU rig mining stable for 16 hours straight. I'm using Supermicro boards in my operation to have IPMI and limit having to move rigs or monitors around to troubleshoot. Once the kinks are worked out its great! Anyways my board only has 7 PCIe slots so I've been experimenting with splitters to get me to 8 cards. Its been a long road. I started with a couple of those x1 into 4 USB cards which kinda worked if I was running less than 6 total GPUs and no more than 2 cards on each splitter. They are funky. I could run 4 on the board and 2 on the splitter for days but if I added 2 more to the board I had constant crashes. I spent an immense amount of time messing with the PCI gen, MCFG setting (base address for PCI devices) with mixed results. Finally as I gave up yesterday and put 2 cards back in another rig my x16 to 8 USB splitter finally arrived! I threw it in and hooked up 6 GPUs to it and I'll be damned it ran for 30 minutes no problem. I said screw it and grabbed 2 more cards again and had some rejected shares. Switched the slot back to PCI Gen2 and what do you know. Haven't had to reboot yet. Obviously its known your mileage will vary using splitters like this. It won't magically make a 20 year old motherboard support more cards. But if you have a modern-ish board that doesn't have enough slots it may be the ticket. I know people have had luck with those 4 GPU splitters I'm still not sure why they were so unstable for me but hey this works. Only needing one x16 slot to run cards I may just opt for a dual CPU board and do some CPU mining as well if a new CPU only algorithm triumphs over Cryptonight. x1 switch - https://www.amazon.com/LinkStyle-Extender-BitcoinLitecoin-Adapter-Ethereum/dp/B078YQMF7F/ref=sr_1_15?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1521395139&sr=1-15&keywords=x1+to+4+mining+riser x16 switch - https://www.amazon.com/Motherboard-Express-Graphics-Adapter-Machine/dp/B07571T721
certain PCI-E slots unstable after reboot without pulling the plug, super weird, anyone been in a similar situation?
this is super weird, and took a long time to figure out (after first thinking it was everything else, risers, PSU, GPU, motherboard, ..) on this picture, the pci-e slots marked in green are always stable. the ones marked with red, are stable if the electricity was pulled prior to reboot, but if the electricity was not pulled out prior to reboot, then they have about a 50% chance of being stable/unstable. at first i thought it was a bad bios overclock, so i reverted to stock bios, then i replaced the risers, then i thought it was a bad PSU, replaced it, then maybe a bad motherboard, so i replaced it. but it is the exact same situation with the brand new motherboard/PSU/riser. the PSUs are super-high-end, 2x Corsair AX1600i, Corsair's flagship (best) 1600W 80+ Titanium PSUs. the motherboard is Asus B250 Mining Expert, updated to firmware version 1205. the risers are Dayspirit 009S (and i'm not using the sata->pci-e converters to power the riser, i'm using these pci-e splitter cables instead, but also tried with a different 008S riser model from a different manufacturer, didn't help), the GPUs are 10x different RX580's (2x Aorus RX580, 5x Asus Dual RX580 OC, 1x Asus ROG Strix RX580, 1x PowerColor Red Devil RX580, 1x Maxsun RX580, all 8GB GRAM models), anyone experienced anything like this? any idea what's happening?
Which motherboards can support 12+ cards with a 4 way PCIe splitter?
I have tried these on an ASUS Prime Z270-A motherboard and have gotten 2 of them to work (therefore theoretically increasing the amount of GPUs I can plug in to 13 without even using the M.2 slots. Does anyone know of any other motherboards where 12+ cards would be able to be supported without any kind of bandwidth,etc issues, by using 2 of these splitters? I am kind of afraid to buy another motherboard just to have it not work. I guess to get 12 GPUs on one motherboard really only requires 6 PCIe slots as long as 2 of them are 1X (I noticed these splitters don't work on 16X slots.) Any suggestions that aren't $150+ and almost always out of stock? :) Thanks in advance.
Hey guys, I have 7 furies I am looking to unload so I can upgrade to more hosted miners. I know the market out there is crazy right now and prices are all over the place. I'd like to offer the following:
7x furies that have been running between June 9th and July 9th.
2x PCIE to Barrel connections (3 each) (this is the best way to run them) These bad boys cost $25 new from GAW.
If interested, I will provide the 2 glossy GAW boxes from my week 2 miners. Same place that made the iPod boxes.
Asking price is $300 $250 (Priced to sell!) for the whole kit and kaboodle including shipping (UPS Ground). If you want priority USPS shipping, I can price that for you but you pay for it. If interested, I'd also sell my zen controller for $50 (still $70 on GAW). For those lazy at math, the price per Fury comes in at under $43 per unit, shipped. These are selling for $45-50 on Ebay right now with an additional $12.75 in shipping. GAW has them at $60 + $6-$10 shipping for new units. I have this offer up on other areas, but to be honest, I should have started here. I believe in the DDF and dogecoin got me into mining. I HODL several million in doge and am a shibe through and through (don't make me post a pic of my dogecoin shirt!) This is a great bundle for a shibe looking to get into mining at a reasonable cost. With the zen controller, it's really plug and play. 9.3 MH/s in 15 minutes. My favorite pool (and yes, I have been buying doge with my proceeds!) http://i.imgur.com/wOXjj5W.png?1 Not a bad opportunity to have a cheap GB for the DDF if one person were to host them on an existing PC or unused PSU. All 7 would draw between 280-350 watts when run on a good PSU. I have a 500+ watt psu if someone wants to make an offer with the bundle. OCZ platinum. Will sell it CHEAP! I will accept dogecoin and bitcoin. You're all my last stop (should have been my first stop) before heading to ebay.
Okay so I need a bit of help here, I am putting together parts for a mobile streaming/recording pc. I play fighting games with my local FGC. The goal is to bring this with me to events to stream/record content. I am SET on a specific case and know which motherboard I am most likely going to use. Its a Mini ITX case and Mini ITX motherboard. Now the issue here is the motherboard supports only one PCIe slot...I need to fit a full length/height graphics card and a Elgato HD60 Pro. So my question is can I either...
A) Split the PCIe x16 slot on the board into a PCIe x16 and PCIe x1 configuration with some sort of risesplitter without throttling any speed? or can I..
B) Utilize the Mini PCIe bus on board with some sort of Mini PCIe to female PCIe x1 adaptor as a workaround?
I know these are really weird and abstract questions but I know in concept it is possible. I have seen bitcoin miners using something of the sort, I don't know how practical or viable it is when trying to split PCIe buses is but hopefully this is possible in this situation. I'd really like to have everything I need in that case so I can have a very small and portable unit. I am open to suggestion for other viable workarounds but the case, motherboard type (Mini ITX), and PCIe based Elgato HD60 Pro must remain constants in this build.

One of these options is the use of the cheap Chinese PCI-Express x1 to 3x PCIe x1 slots splitter boards that can be found relatively cheap if purchased directly from China. These boards take up one PCI-E slot on your motherboard and provide you with three x1 slots to use, so essentially they are adding up two extra slots for you to try and populate with video cards.
