Asus DirectCU 5850 issue

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I bought a 5850 DirectCU EAH5850. But, it only comes with a molex to PCI-E 6-Pin adapter. Thing is, card comes with 8 pin+6 pin, and my PSU only has 2 6 pin connectors. Can I connect them to the card without issues?. I think the 6 pin will fit into the 8 pin slot, but I'm not sure if the pinout is correct and I don't want to damage anything. Thanks in advance.

The +2 are just extra grounds I believe...and it's only a 5850, that being said wait for someone a bit more knowledgeable before taking my word on it

I've also heard that the +2 pins are just more grounds.

But like trulsrohk said, wait for someone who knows for sure.

The extra 2 separate the power flow a bit more into the gpu, but you will be just fine with the 2 6 pin connectors if thats all you have. I have the asus 5850 top oced card, i called asus on the same issue befor i bought my new psu.

See if you know someone who has a dual molex to 8 pin adaptor.
