One PCIe slot on PSU can drive 2 graphics card?

Hi!

I want to buy a BeQuiet dark power pro 10 1200W, which have I think 4 PCIe slot for graphics. I want to drive actually 6 graphics card, so 2 slots for 2 GPU, and the other 2 slot should be to drive 4 GPU. IS this so possible, or every slot can just one GPU to drive?

  1. Not sure what your asking that power supply has 1X 6 pin and 8 X 6+2 pin connectors PCI-E.
    I have not seen a motherboard that can support 6 cards you really need to list the parts your going to use.
  2. I want to build a gear for mining ethereum. The motherboard is Asrock H81 pro btc. So, everything is ready, but don't know that this PSU is capable for driving 6 GPU. Originally, they recommend a Corsair rm 1000W, which have separatly 6 slot for connecting GPU's. But the bequiet have only for, therefore I ask it is possible, that from one slot I connect two GPU.
    Here is a corsair http://www.corsair.com/~/media/corsair/product-images/psu/rmx-series/large/rmx_1000_03.png
    And this is the BQ https://ic.tweakimg.net/ext/i/imagelarge/1331210482.jpeg there is only 4 PCIe slot, but I need to drive 6 GPU.
  3. Be Quiet has 8x 6+2 pins and 1x 6 pins and Corsair has 8x 6+2 pins.

    Then u need to explain how u are going to use 6 gpus on that motherboard?
  4. your question is actually both makes no sense and weird to be honest, for sure with motherboard you use it is not able to use 6 graphics cards, it can only support 1 because only 1 x16 pcie slot there. and i dont think there is a power supply that can plug into 6 graphics cards. another thing, power supply dont have any pcie slot, but motherboards do. 6 pcie slot probably only exist on server motherboards

    The cables have 2 X 6+2 pin on the PCI-E cables.
    PCI-E 6+2 pin (GPU) 8
