I use 6-pin-to-sata riser I bought from Amazon. I just connect one riser per sata rail from the PSU and it's been my setup for 6 weeks now. My rig is 6x Rx580 dual-mining eth+sia.x86asm wrote: ↑Aug 7th, 2017 1:24 pmAnother question,
Those PCIE risers (1x to 16x adapter), I noticed a lot of them use SATA+USB in some ways. Here is the one I am looking at:

For a PCIE card, I believe 75W can be drawn from the slot (at least for 16x). So how is the SATA power able to make up the difference from a 1x slot? I believe a 1x slot can supply 25W. So that is 50W difference, which seems like a lot and I would be concerned about the SATA power cable being able to carry that amount of power without becoming warm (or burning up). A hard drive barely uses 10W, an SSD likely a lot less.
Also is it a good idea to have the slot's 25W being drawn through a USB cable? Are my assumptions in this post incorrect?
