Product Description

Although this kit can be used on any ATX Motherboard the quantities of the following components are geared for the ASUS 250. This kit offers a complete power solution using ONLY TRUE Server Platinum Power Supply at 94% efficiency. As a result, no ATX PSU is required. Further, having a single source of power between the Motherboard and GPU's increases stability.

We included a remote power management module with each kit. Giving you the ability to power cycle the entire rig from anywhere or pre-schedule power cycles.

** Motherboard and GPU's are NOT Included in this Kit; Pictures are for reference only  **

 

What's Included in this kit 

*** Depending on your selection between Pico and ZSX board. ZSX Board Manual available here as a PDF.

**** Depending on your selection between 2400watt and 1200watt PSU. The power cord is not included for the 1200watt, which needs a C13 cable.

Please note that the cable quantity is based on GPUs that require only 1 PCIe for power. If your GPU needs 2 PCIe for power, then you will need more cables.

Installation:

No instructions are included. However, we will monitor and reply to all comments in the discussion tab. We encourage the community to also reply and comment with their experiences and collective knowledge. The above list of components included is linked to each item's listing with detailed specs. Please review the individual items for full guidance.

Please review the ZSX to motherboard wiring guide.

As always, we highly recommend installing these components in steps and test each step before moving to the next one. The first step would be to power up the B250 Motherboard with the ATX 24pin adapter, get a screen, and access the bios. The second step to set up and run two GPU's.  Next, add two extra GPU's at a time and powering up and down until all are installed. Finally, "the fun part," clean up and secure all cables as desired.

 

Many Thanks to - James R. - for providing valuable feedback and pictures of his setup.

The Delta 1200 Platinum PSU is rated at 1200watt when connected to AC of 208V +. If connected to AC 110v/120v they will be rated at 900watt. Please be mindful of your GPU’s expected watt consumption. You may require input AC of 208V/240V depending on your GPU’s power requirements

Todd S. asked us a very important question about the three 24pin ATX connector on the A250 board. “Since only one one 24pin ATX adapter is included in our kit; how can this work?” The A250 only use one “A” of the three 24pin Socket to power itself. The other two, B & C are simply use with the assumption that you would need two extra ATX power supply to power the GPU’s, and you must have a way to turn these PSU on and off. Now, that we have bypass this entire ATX solution; B & C 24pin connector are rendered useless.

Hi joseph, did you test this? In the asus manual they said that you need to put the 24pin in each socket for power balance with the PCIe 12v connectors.
Also, I want to make a rig with rtx3070 and rx5700xt, so I wonder if the 24 pin connector are necesary to balance power withing the PCIe 1x in the board and the PCIe 12v connectors plugged in the GPU.

Sorry I originally posted this in a review: so I think I used the molex to Sata to power a Kingston 120 GB ssd and those molex are supposed to be used for linking the 2 psus together? I am on a b250 mining expert. I had tried 2 different molex to Sata to ssd and they wouldn’t read in slot 1,2,3,4. I switched to 6 pin to Sata cord from a different psu and got it to read for about 1 minute then it went away. Did I fry the dad’s by hooking them up to the molex? Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Also tried a different motherboard same issue. Going to get new ssd’s in the morning but I don’t want to keep frying them…if that is what is happening…

So the only issue so far I have run into with this kit is that it wont actually run 13 newer gpu’s with the 13 gpu kit. Maybe old cards with 1 power connect, but newer cards with 2 power connectors, there is not enough power cables. I am doing a 12 gpu setup and looks like I will need 18 total of the “18AWG PCI-E 6PIN TO DUAL 8-PIN Y-SPLITTER EXTENSION CABLE” and of the “24 INCH 16AWG 6 PIN MALE TO 8 PIN (6+2) MALE PCIE POWER CABLE” to power all 12 gpus and all 12 risers. I am ordering 5 extra of each, but since it says its a complete power system for a 13 card setup.. seems a little deceptive. Its only $36 more dollars to complete the kit for a 12 gpu setup, but still. Might want to add a note or something on this kit about gpu’s with two power connectors.

i think i have everything figured out about this, my only question is what happens when one psu dies? Do i need the “X11 and X6B Breakout Board Fault Protection Cable Kit”? Also, with B250 mining expert, it is recommended to put 3 molex into the board. This set comes with 3 PCIe to molex and 2 Y splitters, giving me a total of 5 molex – leaving only 2 for powering risers, so i would just need more PCIe to Molex connectors right?

Support
2 months 26 days ago

Teflon, I would hope the risers you are using are power by PCI’e and not Molex 4pin! It is the reason we included the 6+2 Y splitter. here Is the riser I’m referring to. https://www.parallelminer.com/product/ithoo-usb3-0-pci-express-1x-to-16x-extender-riser-card-adapter-w-24-cable/ Unlike ASIC Miners, with GPU mining you can’t really hurt any part of your system if one PSU would fail. So the fault protection cable is not very useful. Besides, it is very short which means you would have to put the two PSU very close together. The ideal would be to use ONE 2400watts PSU but these require 240volts AC. We will be updating this kit to give the user the ability to chose the PSU type.

Thank you for the extremely fast response. I have 3 different types of risers, from 2014,2017. Some have the 6 pin pcie connection, but most only have female molex slot and/or sata slot. I was wondering if the 6 pin could be used with a pcie cable, thank you for clarifying. Guess it’s time for new pcie risers.
Edit: Was looking at the B250 full kit, 2x 900 watt psu, and am only going to run 12 card at around 100 watts each, so i figure ill be under 1500 watts on 110v. It is a dedicated 110v -20A circuit for mining.

Support

Yes, we are familiar with the older Molex 4pin. “I was wondering if the 6 pins could be used with a PCI-E cable” I’m not sure exactly what you mean but yes, you can use our cables 6pin to power the riser 6pin plug directly. If you can power these two 900watt PSU’s from two separate circuits that be best. Mining is a constant load, none stop, and heat build-up quickly.

Figured out how to connected the 3 MOLEX power plugs on the B250. They have to share the same common ground from the same power supply to be stable to boot up. I will make a video later to show the diagram maybe this will help others. Looked on other forms and see this is a common problem. Was able to solve this issue. Thanks James

Does the breakout board control the fan speed on the PSU? I had a PSU heating up and shutting down without the fan speeding up. I changed it out with a new one and the new one did the same thing. I then changed the breakout board and now the fan is running correctly on the PSU that was over heating before.

Support
2 months 12 days ago

PSU will shut down when they overheat. They overheat for two main reasons 1) defective fan 2) your drawing more power than the PSU can handle. Also, note that the 1200watt is only rated at 900 when connected on 110/120. Once they cool off they will be ok to power again. Finally, to answer your question, No the breakout board does not control the fan. Heat in the PSU does

ok, what is the max power output per 6 pin connector on a breakout board? I am using 240v to the PSU.

Support
2 months 11 days ago

The power limit of any electric cable is base on its size. Here we have 16AWG stranded copper and they are three pairs per PCI-E cable. The extra 2pin are ground. Found the amp rating of 16AWG wires “Chassis rating” multiply the amp rating x 12volt = Watt then multiply by 3 pair. (Amp_Rating X 12) X 3 = Maximum watt per PCIe cable. To be on the safe side of thing I would use only 80% of the result so X 0.80

I just set this up on the B250 and can not get the motherboard to power on. When I press the power button on the power supply the GPU starts up but the MB does not. I have everything plugged in as per instructions/discussion. Any ideas? Does the front panel connector need to be jumpered or have anything connected?

Hi there, I am not from support of this company but… starting the psu don’t start the system, is like a normal PC, you have a power switch for the PSU in the back but you also need to press the power button of the mother 😛

In this case, start the PSU and then look in the mother board for the power PIN (look the panel near the sata ports), you need to put a push button or just bridge the two power pins (look a video in youtube don’t fuck your board for short circuit your mother)

    Not all pieces of the order were sent. Customer service was more combative than helpful. Stating that smaller pieces were sent but wrapped in bubble wrap used to protect the larger power supplies. Every single piece of packaging material was shredded looking for the missing pieces that were not sent. Seller refused to send the missing pieces. Their best resolution was to send everything back and once processed they would give a refund. However, there was a lengthy warning that if the return packaging was to their high expectations they would not be refunding the order. So in other words, if it wasn’t returned in what it had been sent in which had been thoroughly destroyed in searching for the missing pieces, I would not be refunded the money. Fortunately I did receive the power supplies and cables so when factoring in the missing pieces I was only out roughly $25 of a $200+ order. If you do order document everything and take pictures to protect yourself when opening and unpackaging.

    Nice setup for the B250, everything you need. Fan noise can be much louder than a normal PSU, so be prepared if noise is an issue, but that is expected with a server PSU.

    With standard ATX PSU being scalped left and right it was nice to locate a powerful enough PSU to help support mining rigs without spending $500+ on 1300w. The customer support and dedication this team puts in is far from none. I was lucky enough to get an order in for the B250 mining expert server PSU and within a couple days of no progress with my order I decided to email customer support to get an updated and within 30 minutes of sending my email I received more than just an updated. Due to the high volume of orders some parts of my order were not available but that did not stop their team from not only upgraded my shipping with no added cost but also included the ZSX breakout board when my original order only had the pico-board. All and all the team at Parallel Miner goes above and beyond to assure customers that their money goes to high quality PSU for a great price and that their team is always there for any questions that need to be answered. I will be a returning customer and have already recommended Parallel Miner to my friends and colleagues.

    Hello team,

    I am eagerly waiting for this to come back in stock. In the meantime I have some questions to make sure I order all the right compoenents for the right setup as I never used a server PSU. I appreciate your support.

    My motherboard is ASUS B250 Mining Expert and I have the latest most power hungry GPUs (RTX 3090 and RTX 3080), so I am going to need to order 2 x 2400W power supplies to provide sufficient stable power to the rig, and I live in a 240V location so no issues there.

    Q1. I’ve read on the PICO discussion that combining the PICO with the 2400W power supply is not ideal to power this motherboard due to the 12.5V output the PSU has compared to 12V needed by the B250. Is this problem eleminated by using the ZSX boards? Can I use the 2400W with ZSX to power the motherboard directly or will the 12.5v still be an issue?

    Q2. If the ZSX solves the problem of Q1, Do I need to plug both 24PIN from each PSU’s ZSX into the motherboard? The motherboard manual says each 24PIN is responsible for powering a specific section of the B250 so should both be plugged in? Or do server PSU work in a different way that ATX PSU?

    Q3. Do I need to plug in the three onboard AUX molex connectors to the first PSU as the motherboard manual suggests? I’ve researched online and it says the AUX molex connectors are only needed to be plugged in if the risers in use are from the not powered variety. All my risers are powered and many peoploe who use powered risers are running stable rigs using this motherboard without plugging the AUX molex in, but again that’s an ATX setup and this might be different.

    Thank you so much for your support and I look forward to your response.
    I continue to wait for this item to be back in stock, my rig completion counts on it 🙂

    Cheers,
    Mazen

    Howdy, folks! I have a few questions about setting up the Delta 2400 with two X11s and the remote power management module.

    1) Why are the molex splitters included in this kit? The only open molex slots I can find in this configuration are: a) three next to the PCI slots (populated by the PCIe to Molex female cables, correct?) b) one each on the X11s (for the remote power management module, right? this relates to my next question)
    2) With two X11s on a single 2400 power supply, how do I connect the remote management module? Connect its molex to only one of the two X11s? Are they not interconnected?

    Thanks in advance. Any help would be greatly appreciated – as would be guidance if I have anything else connected incorrectly.

    • Missa-Lynn (store manager)

      1) We include (3) PCIe to Molex and (3) Molex splitters so you can use any combination desired to power all 3 Molex ports on your mobo. Some people need the extra length the splitters provide, some prefer the sleeker look of only using the PCIe to Molex cables, and others still mix and match in other combinations.

      2) Please note that this PSU has a master port (PSU fan side on the right) and a slave port (PSU power cord side on the left). The slave port has “limited” functionality where only the PCIe ports and green LED work. Please connect the remote management module to the master port. If you have multiple PSUs, then you would use the interconnect sync cable on the master port as well; you do not need to use an interconnect cable between the two boards on the Delta PSU as they are connected via the PSU. If you do not need remote access and will always be around to manually turn the PSU on/off, then you do not need to use the remote management module at all.
