My apologies in advance if this is not the correct community for this type of question.
I am using a Dell Precision Tower Workstation 5810 and would like to install an Nvidia Quadro P5000. However, I am having trouble finding the specs on the installed PSU. I tried various features on Dell's support site but I can't find what I am looking for. The information on the computer, even using the specific service tag, gives, at best, the required input. I need to know the output capability to ensure that it can support the new GPU; ideally in addition to the current one (Nvidia Quadro K620).
Currently, there are two unused 6-pin power connectors. Based on what I have found online so far, I will have to use either a 2x6-to-8 adaptor (according to Nvidia) or a 6-to-8 adaptor (according to "GPU and CPU power connections" on overclock.net) since the new GPU requires 180W and is equipped with an single 8-pin receptacle. According to Nvidia, if I use a 2x6-to-8 adaptor, I need to make sure that the PSU can handle providing output at 18A. overclock.net simply stated that pin 2 needs to be wired (which appears to be the case).
Image of PSU label to be uploaded soon.
I have already checked that there is an open PCIe3x16 slot (per Nvidia's instructions).
Are there any other potential issues or less than ideal situations I need to check for? Regardless, does anyone know where I can find the PSU specifications?
The instructions also say that there should be "enough" space between the GPU and other components. What is considered "enough"?
