PSU wiring for Crosshair V mobo

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently wiring up my case and waiting for the new ASUS CH V to be released. Looking at an early review of the board posted on OCN HERE (lots of pics), about mid way down the first set of pics is a close up of the top of the board. This shows both an 8 pin and a 4 pin power connection to the board - confirmed later in that thread by the OP.

I'm currently working with a Corsair AX1200 and making custom length / sleeved connectors.

My question - Can I wire both the 8 pin and the 4 pin off a single modular connector into the PSU, or do they each need to be on their own modular connector into the PSU?

I know you can daisy chain typical connectors no problem, but I wasn't sure about this particular instance. If the idea of two connectors is for lowering the load on the PSU as mentioned in the linked thread, then having them on the same connection into the PSU would negate that yes?

Same goes for the two GPUs I'm running as well. They each have a 6 pin and an 8 pin. Can those be daisy chained or do they need to be seperate?

Someone straighten me out please!

The CPU barely consumes any power, relatively speaking. As far as I know:

-both 4 pins are on the same rail.
-they are different shaped connectors.
-the only purpose is to reduce resistance.
