Hi guys I have small mining machine and I wanted to change psu because I have a spare thermaltake 1200watt psu. I have only 5 gpu and I know I won't need more than 1200watt psu

this motherboard has only 8 pin EPS port. As far as I know standard psu has 24 pin connector to board since this motherboard special for mining I assuming that I need some kind of adapter from 24pin to 8 pin EPS please correct me if I am wrong.

I am also attaching board pictures.

You need an 24-pin ATX to 8-pin adapter like this adapter or this adapter.

Thanks for your answer I have seen these adapters but I didn't proceed because I though its made for IBN or DELL computer are they all same ? I dont want to fry my motherboard.

Those 8-pin ATX are standard...but I cannot guarantee their quality.
A couple of years ago, I helped build a couple of similar rigs, but their Onda B250 boards (even though different models) both had 24-pin and 8-pin ATX connectors.
