After a lot of reading, here is where im at. Gigabyte 250 motherboard i3 kaby lake 16 gb crucial 256 ssd 5 x rx 580's 1 x rx 570 1 x rm850x 1x rm1200i. One card went down so i purchased the rm1200 in case it was a power issue, currently running 5 cards getting 138 hashrate @ 670 watts total output. My question is some of my gpu cards have only 1x8 pin connector and some have 2 x 8 pin connectors. I read that i should use both 8 pins on the cards but i am only using one and having no problems. Is this a disaster waiting to happen?
