Could you elaborate with cable you used ? And where to buy ?

Thanks a heap !
I'm currently running power for the HDX card off one of the unused SATA bays. But the optical bay is even slicker and I'm going to swap over the next time I have the Mac Pro out of the rack. You should have the molex connectors for the optical bay power included with your HDX card.

See this post for my current setup:

Mac Pro 5,1 3.46 Ghz 12 core, AMD 7970 GPU, SSD boot drive on 6Gb/sec PCIe card, 64GB RAM, MacOS 10.14.6.
Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.12. HDX, UA Octo PCIe cards, HD I/O, C|24 control surface.
Mostly Avid, Waves, Sonnex and UAD Plug-ins
Genelec 1031AP/7070A 5.1 monitoring.

@Off the wall

Thanks for the link and tip. I am curious to know if the mapro mid 2012 power supply is enough to power both the HDX and RX 580 at the same time without too much heat, but will definitely look into this.
