SUPoX Introduces Professional Crypto Mining B250A-BTC D+ Motherboard

SUPoX introduces a professional crypto mining motherboard, SUPoX B250A-BTC D+, that takes advantage of the Intel B250 chipset for native 8-graphics card support to eliminate the need for riser cards. In addition, it can be used with server power supplies (single 12V rail PSU) which gives more options for scalable mining. Without the need for riser cards, the initial setup cost is lower (a savings of US$7-$10 per riser card) and lowers the overall power consumption. The mining rig is more stable as less heat and less clutter improves airflow, which ultimately prolongs the life of the mining system.

The Intel B250 chipset enables the B250A-BTC D+ to run up to eight native PCI-e X16 slots, which has many advantages over PCI-e bridge solutions. Miners can save on the cost of having to purchase multiple riser cards and have a more efficient overall system. It also has better reliability and stability, as additional riser cards run the risk of burnouts and capability issues that can affect the downtime of the mining rig.
The SUPoX B250A-BTC D+ motherboard features a slim form factor that fits into traditional one-layer square mining chassis. This compliments the riser card-free design well to make the most compact yet powerful mining system possible for professional miners to fit as many mining rigs in any space.

A combination of AMD Radeon and Nvidia GeForce graphics cards are possible for SUPoX B250A-BTC D+ motherboard. With graphics cards prices at an all-time high, this gives you the flexibility of building the best cost-performance system at any given time.

The motherboard also has an HDMI port that supports KVM switches to connect monitor and peripherals, this is important for scalable mining setups as overall cost is reduced to a minimum with multiple setups sharing the monitor and peripherals. The SUPoX B250A-BTC D+ motherboard is designed for professional miners that plan to run scalable mining setups that requires reliability, efficiency, cost-performance and powerful all at the same time.
MSRP: $169.99.

Remember EPoX from the early-2000s? Same guys, although Chaintech is the OEM (same people who supply to Colorful).

I remember I had one of their mobos with athlon xp, loved the light green pcb. I googled it and was so surprised, I completely forgot that mobos had no vrm heatsinks back then and north bridge was still a thing, not to mention there were no solid caps and leds.

According to EPoX's wiki page SUPoX is made up with old employees of EPoX. Not sure if this means former employees or just employees who've been with EPoX donkeys of years. I remember back in the days they used to make boards for skt 754 and they even tried to branch into the enthusiast market with skt939, No idea what happened but they just slowly faded away the same way as DFI LanParty who were so popular with the enthusiast crowd back then.

I remember reading somewhere EpoX released one or two enthusiast boards but they vanished after that. I think the market back then was too crowded. Asus, Abit, MSI, Gigabyte, Biostar, DFI LanParty, AsRock... ECS was around too but ECS didnt enter the Enthusiast market until a few years ago.

I guess they refocused their efforts on the OEM markets. EpoX is kind of like Foxconn except Foxconn is much much much bigger

Nah they should at least be double or triple the MSRP to keep current trends. ;)

Iirc, many enthusiast board makers called it quits one Nvidia stopped making chipsets. Probably Intel gave them less leeway with their designs.

Like who?? All of the used to make boards using Nvidia's Chipset. The ones ive listed with the exception of Abit who went bust and DFI LanParty who lost their lead motherboard designer and never hired another one. I dont think ECS or Biostar made boards with Nvidia Chipsets back then as they were still focused on OEMs and general consumer boards -- I could be wrong though.

Yeah, Abit and DFI are the ones that come to my mind now...

I put those big ol box fans on most of my rigs, only the most hottest ones. I have lots of those zotac and gigabyte mini 1070 and 1080s, the cooling is not the best on the them. I kinda dont like them but only thing I could find.

I would love something like that, I would save me some space, it might save me about 1% in power savings.
