Im planning to buy my first server power supply, along a breakout board.
I have a few questions about the latter
I’ve seen some that come with 12 pcie 6 pin connectors, while others offer 17.
Pro and cons of each? The 17 less safer?
Some boards come bundled with pcie cables.
Are those sort of universal? If I need more of those , would they be compatible even if I buy them from a different vendor?
Though I have seen a few with atx connector, many don’t come with it. If I get one of the latter, is there some sort of 6 pin to atx adapter so I can get rid of the classic psu?
In general , what do I need to look for a breakout board? Safety , for sure.
But good providers? I heard of Parallel Miners but I have seen many on ebay and ali express as well. Prices are tempting but don’t want buy a potential hazard.
