It is a workstation, so the fans are likely running at close to max speeds. This is certainly not a consumer-oriented product.

I'd be surprised if they had their fans on, the servers fans should push far more air through the top end of the GPU and out through the PCIe slot vents than they'd be able to get through the GPU fan normally.

The gpu fans WILL be running at close to max, if not max speed, with the rest of the system. The server fans wouldn't be able to keep it that chilly (51degrees at max load) without the gpu fans helping out cuz of how tight all 8 gpus' are lol.

Just my thought is all...also depends on the air conditioning and temperature in the room its posted in, which like you said would likely be a server room.

Well the article said no AC at 22C ambient.

Probably a few. I know cases like that can accept up to four redundant supplies, so yeah, shouldn't be an issue.

Jeeze then is all I can say. The noise those fans must produce has gotta be outrageously loud...I was thinking there would be atleast AC in the room going on. If thats all fan cooling on the machine then its got to be loud lol. Sorry I quick read the article :P

I would think probably 2 1500watt PSUs. Though I didn't calculate the tdp so I'm just guessing
