Hello.

 

I am searching components to make a 6 GPU's mining ring.

I want also to by a cheap processor now and later extange the processor to sell a computer at hinger price. The cheap processor must be max 55w.

I found that intel ivy bridge can have that, but the top processors are very expensive.

I didn't found any AMD motherboard with 6 Pci-e, but found with 5.

* Does AMD support 6 GPU's on a single motherboard?

* Does a 5 pci-e motherboard run 5 7950 GPU's at the same time and with a cheap processor(55w)? (example: FM2-A85XA-G65)

I am still seaching for AMD because the AMD have better products to sell later, but maybe doesn't have the motherboard and processor that i need.

I think with the new intel Haswel i can't have a cheap processor because will be no more celerons and pentiums.

There is no AMD-based maximum to the number of GPUs on a board, at least not one that we've found yet. It will all depend on the motherboard and how many PCIe slots that you've got, as well as how they're wired.

The chipset and software won't restrict the number of cards, the motherboard will be the big one there, so contacting the motherboard manufacturer to find any 6-GPU-compatible models would be a good next step.

Be aware that due to updates in bitcoin mining, the money you will spend on a mining rig and the electricity running it will never be exceeded by the amount of money made on bitcoins.
