Server PSU breakout board / 6 pin SATA/Molex connectors

I'm converting one of my mining rigs from ATX PSU to a server PSU powered one.


My situation is, I have a modular Corsair HX1000i that is not working anymore and now I have spare SATA/Molex with Type-3 / 6-pin connector.

I purchased one of those HP 1200w server PSU with the breakout board which supports 6-pin PCIE connectors.



My problem is, I do not have 6-pin powered risers. What I only have are SATA and Molex powered risers.

My question is, can I plug one of those SATA/Molex cables that's left by my Corsair HX1000i to the server PSU breakout board?
They seem to plug in fine but I'm not so sure about the voltages of every pins. I do not want to start fireworks inside my house so if anyone of you has tried this please do tell if it works.







Thanks in advance.

    I believe the voltage from the PCIE rails (12V) differs from the voltage for the peripheral SATA rails (3-5.5V?)

    The SATA power connector has 12v and 5v also, but i think the 5v isn't used in the riser, but NOT FOR SURE.

    The safest method is to measure the pinout with a multimeter (for check the corsair modular cables wiring is the same like pcie-6pin or not?) and also measure the risers wiring about 5v used or not.
