One Radeon RX 480 : ~184000 hash/s on WPA

I'm afraid they will heat up each other if put in one case. 8GB of RAM might not be enough in some situations while feeding 6 GPUs.

Which leaves us with the question: what are your plans for cracking with hashcat?

This looks more like an Ethereum mining rig than a Hashcat rig. The RX480 is a shitty GPU for password cracking, and if you have 48GB VRAM (6x8GB) then you really want at least 48GB of host RAM as well.

I was going to say the same thing about a mining rig and would agree. My RX cards are pretty bad with Hashcat and I always find myself running into errors (at least on Win 10). FWIW, my 480s get ~213kH/s on WPA (MSI Gaming X version at 1303MHz).
