Need a bit of help
So i decided to upgrade my 4 gpu rig to 6 gpu rig,
My 4 gpu rig consist of:
1000 w PSU, 4 evga gtx 1070 sc 8 gb and Z170A gaming pro carbon motheboard.
I though - alright, I have 4 gpus on 1000 w, so let me add 2 more EVGA gpus and connect them to 550w, and use a splitter and verything will be great.
So everything just came with the post lady and I added the 550w PSU, connected them with the spiltter and added to 2 gpu’s to the new PSU and started up.
I saw 6 gpu’s and windows told me there where no resources for the 2 new ones.
Hmmm - rebooted and then my system only shows 3 gpus.
Disconnected the new psu and the new gpus, and my system shows 4 gpus again and are happy.
So - whats wrong here ? Did I make a mistake when ordering just a 550 w psu ?
My reasoning was just - hey 4 on 1000 w, then 2 extra on 550 w must be perfect
