Hi guys,

last week I purchased a Server PSU which included a breakout board with only 6 pin PCI-E ports. Unfortunatelly, now I do not know how to power my whole rig inclusive motherboard.

Could someone please help me out?

Thanks :)

    You can't, server psu gives 12V only, but your mobo needs 3.3V & 5V also. Use the server psu to power gpus only, and another atx psu to power the base system.

    Okay thanks. But couldn't be there an issue, due to the fact that the server psu will be not connected to the motherboard in case of a restart or if the miner goes complete off? The server PSU will always power the gpus and not recognizes that the system is off?
