GPU riser with external power supply for HP ProDesk
Simple question (or not?).
Could I use GPU riser for HP small form factor computer and power the graphic card using Dell d220p-01 power supply? (220W)
I got all of the above parts and I'm just wondering if it's going to work without burning the motherboard because its not so easy to find a replacement.
PC: HP Prodesk 600 G2
The Dell PSU powers your GPU and PCIe Riser.
If you plug those in correctly, it will not burn your motherboard
The Motherboard lives in your desktop chassis and has its own power supply. 🙂
Do you know what GPU and Riser you'll be using?
The thing is that HP PSU is only 200W if I remember well. Not more than that for sure.
So if I connect something like GF 1080 to the riser I will need to feed it through those 6/8 pin power connectors. And that's why I thought of using that dell power adapter.
HUH, GTX 1080 has maximum power draw of 180w. TIL.
Just don't OC as that's right on the margins, accounting for PCIe Riser power overhead and accounting for the PSU brick being 13 years old or so.
Passively powered data cable between the two. Just don't lick anything and it should be fine?
Well the reason for my concerns is I already killed one pc in the same setup.
The cause probably was that I did not power up the Dell power adapter (by connecting remote to the gnd). Still though this should not damage the motherboard...
Can I power the riser with HP PSU and the GPU with Dell?
