Hi guys I’m trying to find an economic way to power my 19 gpu rig in the making. ATX PSUs I can find on PC Parts Picker make it prohibitively expensive. ATX PSUs from Ali Express are affordable, but they are they too good to be true (are they fire hazards)?
That leaves me with the HP / Dell server PSUs and breakout boards. Those seem cool, but I’m just so unsure of what I need, how much I should expect to pay and where to find it. I’m worried that what I’m seeing in the server department is also too good to be true.
One thing I’m curious about, for any of us using the B250 Mining Expert, how are you powering the 2 extra 24-pins if you’re using server power supplies? Are there breakout boards that include a 24 pin in addition to 6 pins?
Speaking of 6 pin, what about my RX570’s with 8 pins? I don’t see breakout boards for 8 pin cables, do they exist? Or are the cables that simply add an 8 pin to 1 side with a 6 pin on the other do the job? That seems about as sketch as an AliExpress ATX PSU…
How are you guys powering these rigs?
