I would recommend this, If you’re looking for something a little bit cheaper than a platinum rated 1600w Corsair power supply unit, then you should check out these server PSUs. With a breakout board and some GPU power cables, you can have 1200 watts (at 240 volts) or 800 W (at 120 volts) of Platinum rated power for under £100!
Server PSU for Mining Power Supply
HP 1200W Platinum Power Supply for Servers
This HP server power supply unit is a great option for a mining power supply. It’s 1200 watts of power on a 240volt plug, or up to 800 watts on a 120 volt/standard household plug. Plus, being platinum rated, you can be sure that it will provide clean, high quality stable power to your expensive mining gpus! It’s one of the best options for a cheap mining rig power supply.
Just like all the other server power supplys listed, you’ll need a plan to get the power to your GPUs. Likely, a high quality breakout board will do the trick, and then the last thing you’ll need is a low power standard computer PSU to power your mining motherboard and hard drive.

For me when choosing a case its not really one model – it all depends on the amount of GPUs and you should choose accordingly.
Check out a selection and think what will fits the needs of the RIG you are building.
Not to be overlooked cooling is very important but it also does not really matter about the price look for the airflow – if you like RGB go for it but personally I am staying away from them as they just attract moths etc.
- Antec 120mm Case Fan, PC Case Fan High Performance, 3-pin Connector, PF12 Series 5 Packs
SSD / USB
This is another personal preference but I use hive OS so have found that a USB stick is sufficient and have not had a failure in 9 months with:-
- SanDisk 64 GB Cruzer Force USB Flash Drive
I prefer not to cheap out on RAM and split a 16GB pack into 2 rigs.
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz
I personally use HiveOS – check them out simple and easy to use – plus you can see your Rigs anywhere!
