I’m going to build my first mining rig so I have a beginner’s question …I hope you can help me out a bit.
I have 6 NVIDIA 1070 GPU’s and a Seasonic 1200 W power supply. The power supply has 6 eight pin connections (6+2 PCI-E) and 4 PCI-E cables.
My questions are:
- Connecting all 6 GPU’s with 1 (6+2 PCI-E) power cable each is not possible since there are not enough connections on the PSU or not enough cables. Is it safe/possible to connect 2 GPU’s to 1 power cable? Most rig building videos on the web use 1 cable per GPU which sounds much safer. Or do I need a secundary power supply?
- If I need a secundary power supply how can I connect both PSU’s to work correctly/simultaneously (start up/switch off at the same time)?
Thanks for your time and help in advance!
