I am building a 8 x 1080ti rig for Zcash mining and i was just trying to plug a second gpu in my asus Z370-A with risers but ass soon as i put the power on the blue usb cable just melted!
I knew aboout molex or sata cable burning but not usb cables???
Any idea what could have cause this.
It was powered by a sata cable via a sata to 6 pin adapter that came with the riser but those one didn’t metl.
Now I am thinking powering all my risers with 6 pin from VGA cables (I have 2 x 1600 evga psu to power my rig).
Anyone knows how come a usb cable on a riser can burn?
i just ghope my mobo and gpu are ok I didn’t dare powering the rig again before I redo all power connection more safely.
