Hello to all; I need to upgrade my «old» Mac Pro.
I wanted to buy and install a Radeon VII on it...

Can anyone share some links (Amazon.co.uk/eBay.fr/whatever) on Europe, where I can find the needed parts, to make the PIXLAS Mod?
I would be really grateful for the help; thank you in advance.


Kind regards,
Me

hi,

I found this cable in the USA for my second mod. It is made better than the Chinese one from Hong Kong and it was delivered in about 3 days, unbelievably. I am in the USA as well as the store I got it from. I saved the photo from that site and they are not too big so sorry if it is not large enough to see when I post it.

Nice!
Although it seems to be shorter than the moddiy one , which is ~32 inches long total .
Could be just about long enough I think..

I got the 36" option. It was a bit more but I was able to mount it out of the way of the air flow. They have wrap options, or whatever you call that black stuff on the wire to protect it.

They have been manufacturing these cables (6pin to 8 + 8 pin VGA cables) in great volumes to supply to cryptocurrency mining farms. (Those that use VGA card configurations). These are abundant (check eBay for instance) and very cheap.
