Hi, I live in Australia. I have a Crypto mining rig that will soon have 3/1200w power supplies attached to a 10a power board drawing more than 2400w and that will be attached to a 15a wall socket (That usually runs the air con)...Can I run more than 2400w through that system? Is that safe?

Otherwise, my next option will be to split the rig and run those 1200w power supplies in separate rigs...That brings me to my next question...

From my understanding, it's not 2400w from each wall socket but rather 2400w for each circuit bracker in the main power box. I'm thinking there is two or three different power sources that I can separate my rigs and plug into or is it actually 2400w from each wall socket?

Before you do any of that, is your expected mining yield going to be better than the cost of the electricity?

Out of curiosity is one mining for the elusive black opal, always fancied playing the long shot game of prospecting.

Something better than a black opals mate... Bitcoin... I also prospect for Gold but that is no were near as profitable. I don't even leave home and digital gold pours into my wallet... When I go Gold prospecting, it costs in Fuel, risks of hitting roos, braking down in the middle of nowhere or getting bitten by a snake. I rarely get back home after a week braking even...But Bitcoin, Lol, has made me rich...Gold has to many risks...
