In this guide I use two mini 6 pin to 6 pin adapters and a dual 6-pin to 8-pin adapter.
If you’d like to use your Mac compatible graphics card alongside your RX 580 for boot loader support, you can always use power from a SATA port from the hard drive bays convert that into a 6 pin with a SATA to 6 pin adapter.
Mini-6 pin typically get you 75W each and the PCI slot gets you 75W, so the maximum power GPU you can get should be 225W. However, on the forums people say that Apple actually allow up to 150W per mini-6 pin port which gives you a maximum draw of 375W. However, other people on the forums say that yes it can draw more but if you draw more you’re more likely to damage some of the components.
