What do you use as adapter for GPU PCIe-6 pin or 8 pin from Supermicro power supply?

    Guys, Supermicro power supply only has an extra molex connector. What do you use to power GPUs from such power supply? I only need to worry about 1 GPU with 6-pin PCIe power connector for now. But if there's a way to get more PCIe power connectors from supermicro power supply. I would like to know also.

    thanks

    GPU tower and rack chassis have multiple GPU power connects.

    That didn't quite work for me since my chassis is the SC846 (with a 1k28-sq psu). I should be able to DIY a 4-pin molex to a 6-pin PCIe (most COTS adapter uses 2 4-pin molex, I don't know why since a molex can handle 11A, 132watts). For piggy back off of a CPU power connector.
