Got something to discuss?

1 year 23 days ago

I really want to understand this. From what I understand this will enable someone to power an entire GPU mining rig with a server PSU. Here are the questions I have…

1. Does powering on the GPU mining rig also power on the server psu?
2. If I need 2 server psu’s for a single mining rig how do I go about that? If my motherboard has 2-3 atx slots can I buy 2 of these adapters and run 2 server psu’s to both the ATX slots on the motherboard? Will the PSU’s turn on at the same time?
3. A lot of the GPU’s I use need 8-pin connectors (and some 8-pin and a 6-pin). If all of the breakout boards have only 6-pin pci slots is that okay to run it to an 8 pin connector? Even if the breakout board is only six pin, can it still send 150w to the 8-pin connector?

I am starting to get to the point where I have many rigs and I need server PSU’s. I just want to have a solid understanding of everything before diving into this. Thanks in advance! 😀

1. Powering on the GPU Mining RIG will not do anything because the Server PSU powers on Differently than ATX PSU, So, the only way to turn your Rig on if you are using just Server PSU is by turning on the Server PSU itself (Either by switching it On if the breakout board have the switch, or by Plug it to the Wall if it turns on directly)

2. According to what’ve read (That’s been a lot), if your MB uses more than 1 ATX Power cable you will need to buy theses and plug them Both (Or what ever plugs you need) to the same BreakOutBoard/PSU, so that when you turn the PSU they Both will get Power from the same source.

3. There’s no problem by having the cables go from 6 to 8 PIN or 6+2PIN, Because the 2 extra Wires are just Ground. You can use a 6 PIN Female to dual 8PIN or 6+2PIN but only If the cable kit you buy is 16AWG or lower, if it’s not you can be risking it..

Hi, what’s the length of the primary cable – 6-pin to 24-pin?

1 year 18 days ago

About 12in … We can make them as long as 24

I recived this today and I have a question, I don’t know wich cable goes to the + and to the – on the adapter, i think the yellow is + and the black is -, im i wrong? its confusing because it dosent come with basic instructions :/

1 year 5 days ago

Support, I have a two questions;

1. Can the CPU 8 pin ATX12V1 connection on the mobo be powered directly from the 6 pin break out board? I only ask because I saw this in a video somewhere. ( I could not tell from the video if it was your product). If possible then this would RELIEVE the load on 24 pin power module.

2. If you could power the CPU 8 pin from your break board, do you carry a 6 pin to 8 pin cable for an ATX12V1 connection?

For reference I will be purchasing from you shortly but wanted to get this out there since I saw these questions being posted. My mobo is a gigabyte GA-Z270P.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I just got the 160w version of this and it will not power my TB250-BTC mother board, will this one work?

11 months 26 days ago

Hi, I have the same issue. Mobo TB250 BTC pro.

11 months 25 days ago

I have 3 of the 160w versions powering 3 rigs with the same board, biostar btc pro. They have been working fine for a couple of months, then yesterday the 4th rig stopped working. I’ve traced the problem to these connectors. The board will no longer POST with this connected but will POST with a normal atx psu. I have no idea why this happened all of a sudden. I made no changes to the rig and the other 3 are working fine still.

11 months 8 days ago

I have got the 2400W Power supply and V8 (32) breakout board, and this adapter. But my Motherboard Biostar TB250 BTC Pro uses 24 Pin + 8Pin Atx power supply. This is not powering my Motherboard. Tried various combinations but the power supply seems to switch off or something wrong when it gets connected. Motherboard is working fine if I plug different power supply. I am missing something?
I want to use only this Server power supply in my Rig and nothing else. Is this possible and what to do to get proper power to the Motherboard. It has 24pin + 8 Pin ATX power connectors.

If this does not work then I will have to buy a Atx power supply seperately for the MoBo and use the server power supply for the Graphic cards only. This seems like waste of money.
Pl. guide.

I have the same problem as you using the 2400W PSU, 180W ATX adapter and TB250 PRO MB. CPU fan spins up and then immediately turns off. My guess is because of increased voltage from PSU. The breakout boards show 12.9V and 12.7V which is over a 12V limit?? not sure though.

10 months 1 day ago

To close the loop on this… the motherboard has built in over voltage/current/heat protection. Since the breakout boards are pushing above 12V the motherboard will reject booting. To fix this I purchased a Drok DC-DC voltage regulator 12A 720W to get me back in the game. Hope this helps someone else out.

10 months 1 day ago

Thanks for the valuable info … I’m sure it will help many.

I looked up this dc to dc converter and it says output voltage must be 1 volt less than input. Will the motherboard run on 11.5 volts?

11 months 25 days ago

I have several of the 180w version coming from the 1200w PSU powering the H110 Pro BTC. They power the MOBO, the CPU and the two 4 pin molex connections for the PCI-E bus. I have tested that it also powers an SSD but I don’t use SSD’s in the production rigs, they run off USB thumb drives. IMO it’s a safer bet to get the 180w for the extra cost.

10 months 24 days ago


I am looking to buy some of these, but I have to ask about the difference from the Chinese versions available on Ebay? They are only a third of the price (or less!) and they look almost exactly the same. I do however understand that it has to be some kind of difference between them.


10 months 24 days ago

Not sure of difference on Ebay and or the supplier/quality. Perhaps the saving are worth it.

10 months 15 days ago

I have the same problem with my Biostar TB 250 BTC Pro. It turns on for a quick second than shuts off. Motherboard works with a regular atx power supply but not this adapter. Am I doing something wrong? Or am I missing a step? Did anyone ever get this solved and can you post the solution if you have. Thanks,

10 months 12 days ago

Could you please post pictures and instructions of how to use this on a motherboard with the server PSUs? I’m pretty sure I just fried my ASRock H110 BTC+ motherboard by using this incorrectly. This could possibly have been avoided with clearer instructions from the manufactures/sellers. And as I intend to continue with your products, I would really appreciate some clear procedures/instructions.

What happened… after mounting the 24pin plug on the mobo, I plugged the four pin (yellow/black, 12v/grd) into the _only_ part of the mobos 8pin ATX12v socket. It mounted to one side, not centrally. As the motherboard has two molex plugs requiring power as well, I used my evga peripheral cable to go from the Delta 2400W extension board. When I turned it on, nothing happened, but I caught a wiff of smoke. No more board function even when trying it out on a standard PSU.

I just thought it worth mentioning to others as well. BE CAREFUL when you plug stuff in!

We are terrible with instructions and are working on it. I’m sorry about your problems. I will email your personally detailed information. If this help you, please share the information’s with others. Thank you

I just connected mine and i have the same MB. You connect the molex from the ATX adapter to a molex splitter that connects to the other 2 molex on the MB.

It is a potentially good product; but my 180 watt module was burnt after 2 days of continuous use. Used it with a 750 Watt plat supply. Bought a standard PSU now to power board.

8 months 28 days ago

Anyone set this up on an Asus Mining expert board? It has 3 ATX slots (24 pin), one 8 pin for CPU and 3 molex plugs – if I get two 750 PSUs do I need to buy 3 picos (one for each atx?); can I use 1 of the pico’s 4 pin CPU plug mounted centrally still correct or will that fry the mobo? how do i handle the 3 molexs – I assume not via the pico and I suspect they have something to do with powering the pcie slots and/or the pcie/cpu interface somehow.

Thanks –

8 months 20 days ago

You only connect 1 x pico in the first atx power connector on the board and also power the 8 pin CPU power using the 4 pin connector provided on the pico. The 4 pin connector can only go in one way so you can’t fry anything. You also do not need to connect the any power to the 3 four pin molex connectors. I’m running 4 Asus B250 boards using Delta 2400W psu’s and 160W pico’s. 1 x Delta 2400W psu powers the board and 13x RX580 gpu’s without any problems at all.

8 months 17 days ago

I had an issue with the 14awg 6 pin feed to the pico. Turns out it was a faulty intermediate connection somewhere with the 2.5mm barrel / input.

Easy fix was to cut that garbage off, and just solder the 3 wires together (1 14awg yellow + 2 red pico) and 3 wires together(1 14awg black + 2 black pico).

It’s 100% understandable if these are drop shipped as separate package, and combining the pico to have a 14awg 6 pin coming from the actual pico input board is impossible.

I just purchased this item for use with a single 1,400W Delta Server PSU and a Gigabyte motherboard (model = GA-Z270P-D3). In the discussion, you make note that you’ve “…read a lot…” about how this adapter would work with various motherboards. Do you have any info that would suggest I need anything other than this adapter to connect between the 1,400W Delta and my mobo? Thanks!

6 months 24 days ago

Hi James
Just be mindful this is 180watt MAX adapter. It should ONLY be use to power your moherboard, CPU and 1 SSD or USB drive. Do not power riser or GPU directly.

James Lavoy
6 months 23 days ago

Understood. I will connect one of the 6-pin breakout board outputs to this and just power the motherboard and CPU. No hard drive at all — using 32GB USB stick. Will power each of the 6 GPUs and their respective risers from separate 6-pin breakout board outputs.

A given card and its risers do NOT need to be powered by the same 6-pin breakout board output (would obviously have to be combined with some splitters to plug to the 6-pin riser and the 6-pin + 8-pin GPU)? I can have a given card’s riser powered directly from one of the 6-pin breakout board outputs and the the 6-pin + 8-pin GPU powered by a different 6-pin breakout board output (coupled with a splitter), true?

6 months 23 days ago

Hi James
To your last question YES, TRUE. In our experience we found the most stable system when GPU’s are Powered by the same Cable which power it’s specific riser. This can be easily achieved with a Y Splitter such as this https://www.parallelminer.com/product/18awg-pci-e-6pin-to-dual-8-pin-y-splitter-extension-cable-2x-62pin-cable-6in-each-side/

Of course the math between your PSU watt rating, Cable size, GPU’s must make sense. I would not suggest anyone to use a splitter with an R9 390X card. That said, most recent GPU’s are efficient enough to support a splitter.

Could someone please tell me how to connect ths up with 6pin risers + 2x750W HP PSU + X11 Breakout Board on a Asrock 110H BTC+ ? I get conflicting informaiton regarding the PCIe molex and SATA on board slots. Do I power those too? I eas able to get it to boot a few times but now it stopped. Unplugged everything and nothing happens when power on.

6 months 1 day ago

Hello diskawrs,

Will you be using an ATX power supply to power up the motherboard? Or are you trying to power up the entire rig wtih the 2x 750w power supplies? If you are opting for the latter, you will need one of our 180w atx adapters to power up the motherboard 24 pin and cpu slot and also one of our molex splitters to power up the 2 molex ports required on the H110 BTC Pro motherboard. Links can be found below:

Thank you.

2X 750W HP PSU and 2x X11 boards. I have the iteam already.
Where should I be taking the power for the two 4pin Molex from? X11 Breakout board?
I only have a 4pin and 24pin cable when I got this adapter.

    When I 1st got it I was a bit confused, but looking at the picture cleared things up. This thing is great, I am now able to build a rig around the 1200W power supply they sell here, so no more expensive modulars. Awesome!

    (verified owner):

    i got 6 of the 180W version and 2 of the 160W version , and tried for 2 different mainboard with the 180W one

    Asus B250 mining expert, the board cannot power up if there is 10 or more GPU connected ( of coz, GPU power by the X8 board itself )
    so useless for this board

    Biostar TB250-BTC Pro,
    it is good, to use with 9 GPU ( again ,GPU power by X8 ) on this board , what a great product
    however, it only stands for around an hour
    the attached “12V PCIe cable power adapter” burned ( at the end which connect to the ATX module )
    at first i think it may be because that cable has some problem,
    so i change to use another one set , the “12V PCIe cable power adapter” burned again

    now , i have 6 of 180W, 2 of 160W of this cable for nothing,
    costed me USD362 before import tax and shipping for nothing
    lucky at that moment i am around , otherwise, it cost much much more than that

    so , conclusion is ,
    use standard ATX power supply for the mainboard for your own safety ,
    and leave the X8 for the GPU only

      Hi Victor,

      While troubleshooting for another customer who ordered the 180w adapter and our 2400w power supply kit we came to find that because the Delta 2400w power supply has an output voltage rating of 12.5v, vs 12v from standard power supplies that the Asus B250 motherboard bios settings will not allow the motherboard to boot properly if the voltage exceeds the max voltage threshold. So you are correct, for specifically the Asus B250 you would would want to use our power supply kit only for the GPUs.

      As for the ATX adapter cable burning up after about an hour of use, we will need to look into this further to determine what the issue was. Please feel free to email me at Albert.s@centrix-intl.com or call me at 9094803000 ext 115 for more details. We can still set you up with a return for a full refund on the ATX adapters.

      Thank you.

      Hello naman,

      The ATX adapter is designed to power up your motherboard. The operating system you choose to use will have no effect on compatibility between the ATX adapter and powering your motherboard.

    I was honestly hesitant to try ANY picopsu but I gave parallel miner the benefit of the doubt and am pleasantly surprised. I will continue ordering these as they are helping me simply both the cost and complexity of my operation.
