List of extra accessories needed to make a mining rig


Add PCI express beyond what is supported on your motherboard






GPU power connectors 

6 pin  GPU to Molex  (8 pin variants also available)



6 pin GPU to SATA power adapter (8 pin variants are also available)
"NEVER convert to or from SATA. You can convert from Molex to 6-Pin, or vice versa - but never SATA. Only buy high-quality adapters which use 16 AWG and better cabling. 18 AWG is okay in a pinch, but at a ~13 amp DC limit, it'll be pushing the limitations of thin wiring. Use this handy table to decide how to split power between connectors. It is always best to buy a fully modular power supply and extra harnesses with the desired connectors if your PSU supports it."  https://www.reddit.com/r/EtherMining/wiki/hardware/risers

Multiple PSUs

You can add multiple PSUs to supply the GPUs with the power they need. To turn on a PSU you need to short the Green wire to GND.

Adapters like the one below will do this automatically when the PC is turned on.
