So I know sata cable not best advised for pci riser but just want to ask as little baffled with what is stated everywhere.
I’m waiting on some pcie cables 6 and 8 pin arriving tomorrow…but I put 1660 super on rig today and was short of cables,so decided to run a sata to pci to power up…its a 4 link sata in to psu and I’ve put 2 x sata to pci to a riser each and powering gpu’s of separate pci to pci.
As I say,was gonna leave itlike this for tonight but on my mind whether to just unplug 1 gpu tonight till neww cable arrive tomorrow as it is on my mind about overheating .
The thing that gets me when reading/watching about over heats on sata cable is when It states drawing power from riser to gpu…maybe I’m reading this wrong but surely the power direct from psu in to the gpu via pcie cable is where the gpu is taking its power??..
Or am off there as not 100% on electronics.
