Hey guys, after reading through the long "The correct way of powering the risers for the 470/480" thread
here, I decided I'll try to avoid using the adapters.
I'm thinking of going for the 6pin (VER006C), but wondering how to best provide the power? I'm using 2x Corsair AX860i's to power 6x GTX 1070's.
I want to make a 6pin (PERIPHERAL/SATA) to 6pin cable for the riser power. Would something like the below work?
Is it possible to daisy-chain as I've shown, or should I provide 6pin-6pin for each riser? I know to allow for 75W on each riser but that's about it..Not sure how to do the math to check if it's possible.
Another option would be to use the 6pin-4x molex that comes with the power supply, then use a molex to 6pin adapter. Is that what most people do? How many risers can you run off the 6pin - 4x molex?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
