Mining Rig build

edited March 2022 in Help Choosing Parts

Hi All - I'm a total nube and would love some help. I bought all my equipment from Microcenter with help from staff. I have a Kingwin KC-6GPU-SS metal rig and it has a metal bar across the middle. My Asus Geforce 1650 GPU with built in 16 pin hits the bar. How do I install the GPU on the rig? I could remove the bar but the GPU just hangs there and I'm afraid with the fan going it will move too much. Thanks so much.

    Hey @Cyberbull100

    Most mining rigs that I have seen usually just hang the IO plate off of the horizontal bar and attach the pcie ports with usb cables to pcie splitter on the mobo. Depending on your rig there might also be standoffs to attach it. If you send a photo of your rig I can help out.
