I am attempting to install a GeForce GTX 970 graphics card in our Dell PowerEdge T410 server for the purpose of rendering 3D graphics. After inserting the graphics card into the PCI-E slot it became apparent that this server does not have the cables necessary to power the card.
What would I need to power the card? Would this SATA Power to 6-pin connector do it?
If so, then I would need two of those (4 SATA power connectors). I only have two free connectors (the rest are connected to hard drives). Can I use a couple SATA Power Splitters to create the necessary inputs?
If not, is there some sort of independent power unit that we can buy to power the card? Perhaps one of the redundant modular PSUs can be replaced with a PSU that provides the necessary power connections?
