I am completely new to mining and the crypto world and I plan to get into this as a hobby. My plan is to build a 4x 1660 Super rig. Everything listed was purchased used except for the GPUs and Risers which I don’t have yet. Risers will be the UBIT risers from amazon and I plan to buy the MSI 1660 Supers. I also picked up a Rosewill 6U 8 GPU enclosed case and an EVGA Supernova 1200P2.
I will use the ASRock H110 Pro BTC+ mobo.
Question 1 - There are two Molex connectors on the mobo around the area of the PCIe connectors. Do I need to plug power into these? From my understanding, since I will be using PCIe power to the risers, I can just ignore these.
Question 2 - I believe the 1200w PSU us more than capable for powering everything. I plan to buy splitters to go from the 8 pin power from the PSU to 2x 6+2 pins. So each 8 pin from the PSU will be powering 1 riser and 1 GPU. Is there any issue with this plan?
Any and all other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have been trying to learn as much as possible, but I know I still have a lot to learn.
I will post pictures once I have everything to document my progress.
