Hardware Input

Hi All,

I was looking to put together a crypto-cracking box. Trying to keep costs relative (not my money but still). After looking at posts I opt'd for 4 980ti's.

I was hoping to see if there are any mistakes or areas of improvement in my choices and if anyone sees red flags before I go out and purchase this. 

Your expertise is greatly appreciated

Those are not reference design GPUs. You will have serious cooling problems trying to stack four of those on top of each other.

You need to do some more research.

OMG, total brain fart. I knew I forgot something.

Is this better?

That was the only glaring issue. There's other things I can nit-pick about, especially if you intend for this to be used for professional use. But I have a feeling our very-vocal user base will chime in on those here shortly.

Such as? I am completely open to criticisms. Last thing I want to do is burn out cards, start a fire, or just build a completely unstable system that it becomes a paperweight.
