1 molex to 1 6 pin? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
Man I have no clue what to do now I really didn't want to have to upgrade to a better PSU and I'll have this GTX 460 just sittin here. If I put my CPU back down to stock speed, and lower my RAM speed, do you think that'll do anything?

The PSU is by far the most critical component in the computer. Without it, nothing would function. It is also the most prone to failure, and can do the most damage when it does give up the ghost. It would be worth your time, effort and money to scrape together enough dollars to get a quality power unit now than to put it off and risk your Xion blowing up under high load.

I guess you're right, do you have any recommendations for a PSU that's good enough for my specs and is not too expensive?
Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate it.

What's your budget? And are you looking for something modular, or does it really matter?

No, technically you can't use 1molex to 2 6pin, because each 6pin is supposed to provide 110W at least, and Molex is limited to 11 amps on the 12v rail (132W). If you do that, you'll be pulling 220W out of it, which may make the yellow wire melt. I've seen it happen.

1 molex to 1 6pin is acceptable. To 2 6pin - no.

The Corsair GS700 would probably fit the bill for you. As per usual with Corsair, it is going to be of good quality and will have supreme support.

I think the adapter was 2 molex to 2 6 pin. If it wasn't, then that's just stupid.

EDIT: It is indeed two molex to two 6 pin.

Yeah it is 2 molex to 2 6 pin from newegg, still not a good enough power supply recommended to run SLI 460s?

Actually, yeah, I take back my previous recommendation. The GS800 would probably be a better idea, it's always advisable to have a good bit of headroom. PSUs also run most efficiently around the 80ish% load mark. The 700 would work, it has 672w of 12v. But, again, headroom.
