Thanks for your feed back. still learning these things.
I have a 1200 W PSU and it only has 4 X 8 pin PCI-Express. and 4 peripheral 6 pin connection. Its a Rosewill 1200W psu.
The Sata cables i had which were connected to the peripherals section of PSU was burnt at the PSU level (out of the six little pins, one melted). This happened with 3 different cables.
I took your advice, and now have:
1 8pin PCI-E cable to 2 GPU’s for a total of 2 PCI-E to 4 GPU’s.
1 8 pin PCI-E cable to 2 Risers for a total of 2 PCI-E to 4 Risers.
I now have two cards not being used. Any advise from anyone on how i can get the other two GPU’s powered? i tried looking through many video’s but what i have is a riser with no molex and a single 6 pin point. Bought a corsair 6 pin to sata but that 6 pin is a type 4 and doesn’t go into my PSU’s peripheral slot. stuck now.
