Akitio Node - Be Quiet 300W Psu - Screen flickering on and off
I have just replaced the stock spu with a be quiet 300w bn226 sfx psu but windows is detecting the device and flickering to start using the display plugged in but then goes off and does this in a loop over and over
I connected the 1 pci-e cable it had to the graphics card (xfx 480 rx) and then used two sata cables to convert to 6 pin for the akitio board
Am i missing something or do i need a higher psu?
@mixxituk, Get a PCIe power splitter adapter to feed the GPU two PCIe power cables. The SATA to PCIe power adapter is likely not providing the card enough juice. The best arrangement is to split one PCIe cable with the adapter to the Akitio Node main board and GPU. The remaining PCIe power cable goes directly to the GPU.
@mixxituk, The Akitio Node mainboard needs a 6-pin PCIe power cable to power the components as well as 75W for the PCIe slot. You would still need a PCIe power splitter because it's a better solution than drawing power from SATA cables.
