In this tutorial, we will introduce how to set up your power supply for the miner (if there is no integrated PSU in your miner).

{Setting up PSU: the LITEON PSU}

The LITEON PSU is the most cost-efficient power supply in the bitcoin mining field. This PSU is powerful enough for most of the bitcoin miners, and also, it’s more quiet than most of other PSUs.

The PSU package includes (to take PSU with 6PIN x 6 connection board as an example):

  • PSU x 1;
  • Connection board x 1; (for 6pin connection)
  • 6pin cable x 6;
  • Power cord x 1;
  • Universal Worldwide Plug Adapter x 1;
  • Ethernet cord x 1;

The pictures used in the following tutorial is of the 750w LITEON PSU. However, the following tutorial also applys for the 1000w LITEON PSU.

  • This is how the PSU package looks you receive from EastShore.

  • Then connect the 6pin cables: For example, for the PSU with 6PIN x 6 connection board, there are six 6pin ports on the connection board. So you can connect six 6pin cables max to the PSU. However, You don’t need to connect all the six 6pin cables always. It is ok to connect just enough 6pin cables for your miner. For example, you miner needs just two 6pin cables, so you just need to connect two 6pin cables to your PSU.

{Setting up PSU: the ATX PSU}

If you bought the mining PSU in our store, please skip this section and go to the following section {Setting up PSU: LITEON 750w PSU}.
  • When you use an ATX Computer Power Supply as your mining PSU, you will need 1 jumper wire. On the PSU’s 24pin motherboard power cable, you have to cross the “Green” line and the “Black” line. (The PSU has a computer inside and it communicates with the motherboard. For this setting, there is no computer motherboard to connect to, so, we have to make the PSU “think” it’s connected to the motherboard and the PCI and PCI-Express ports are needing the +12 V power.
