Motherboards do not come with power buttons. Many first time mining rig builders do not realize this. How will you turn your rig on and off? If you use your PSU is it easily accessible? Can you reach the button on the back of your PSU? Is this the best way to turn your expensive mining rig on and off?
Get a proper power switch and reset switch for your mining rig. Use this 1.6 meter (5.25 feet) long power button and cable. Place your power button in a more convenient location.
Just plug into the proper jumper on your motherboard and you’re ready to go! Easy installation.
The button serves as a light to let you know the power is on. It also flashes to let you know that the hard drive is writing. A basic power button is just a button and won’t have the extra lights on it.
