17 Size (Length*Width*Hight) 399.5mm*130mm*328.15mm

Connecting the Power Supply

Seven PCI‐e connectors are located at the top of the E3 server for connecting the PSU as follows:

  • Six PCI‐e connectors for the hash boards. Each hash board has a set of two PCI‐e connectors.
  • One PCI‐e connector located on the controller

Each hashboard must be powered by the same PSU to prevent possible damage and instability.

To connect the power supply: 

  1. Connect PSU power cable connectors to each of the six PCI‐e connectors on the top of the E3 server, ensuring that each hash board is powered by the same PSU.
  2. Connect a PSU power cable connector to the E3 PCI‐e connector on the controller.
  3. Connect the network cable to the ETH port.
  4. To power up your E3 server, connect the PSUs to the power wall outlet.

If you are using more than one PSU,power up the PSU connected to the controller AFTER you have Powered up the other PSU(s).

Setting Up the Server
