I am new to mining and have run into the issue of not enough PCIE cables. After doing some research, I have seen some people on youtube doing this.
Basically the set up is:
One 8 pin splitter with an double 8-pin and plug it into a GPU that has a TDP of 250 watts.
Then using that same strand, plug it into the riser.
However, aren’t these cables rated to carry a max of 288 watts?
250w GPU + 75w riser= 325w total. Isn’t this dangerous? Or does overclocking the GPU make it acceptable?
