I have an old HP dl380 g6 server and I need to use it for renderings but I have one problem, some of servers don't have 6/8 pin power outs for graphic cards, mine don't have it too.
With that in mind I bought a saphire 5450 low profile (no power pins) just for high quality remote and openGL required apps. But the 5450 didn't make it a week, I send I for warranty and if new replacement have same problem I'm in a big trouble.
Here is problem - I have to buy a new graphic card gtx 650 this card have 6pin power pin my concern is the power supply for this card.
My plan is to buy a 250-350w psu but how sync the server boot and external psu start ups. In pc you can short the psu from the motherboard in servers I don't know how to do it?
So guys if any body have knowledge in this area please help.
I find an empty 10pin power out on servers MB for hot plug hards and raid controler. Is that possible tho get power from that for graphic card.
