I would like to mount a Tesla K20 on a Mac Pro Mid 2012 where I set a double boot MacOSX10.8 Mounting Lion and Ubuntu 12.04. At the moment I don’t have the 2x6pin PCIe power connector for Mac that seems difficult to find in Italy. Still I tried to mount the Tesla and I’ve got a kernel panic for MacOS.
I have three questions: the kernel panic will be fixed when I will conect the power cable on the Nvidia card? It is necessary to connect both plugs PCIe? And third; I have seen that the motherboard can provide only 300W for the all the PCI express slots, I have already an ATI Radeon GT 5500 graphic card, will my Mac be able to support both card, ATI and Nvidia Tesla K20?
Thankyou very much for your help ☺.
