Seasonic x850 gold HELP

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Am currently building my computer and im having problems with the cabling of the seasonic on my ASUS P8Z68-V Pro mobo.

With the seasonic, they have labeled the cables pcie/cpu etc etc. I put the cables where they are meant to go on the mobo, but when i goto plug them into the unit itself, one of the CPU ones does not fit into the cpu section of the unit. It can be pluged into the PCIE section, it has a extra 4 holes by no pins inside.

Hope someone understands!

It looks like the empty pin part may be a clip on which in that case you can clip it off and plug it in as normal but thats kinda weird.. o.O

Try looking at the manual for more instructions. Otherwise you can check how the cable for the PCIE looks like on the unit side, if both the CPU cable and the PCIE cable have the same pin layout (Yellow or black in which pin position) then its possible to just plug it into the PCIE socket because CPU power is also just 12V/ground.

You plug the end with 'CPU' written on it into the PSU. The extra pins on the other end are dummys for boards that require them, they are detatchable.

Does the end on the left in the 2nd photo break into two pieces by chance? It looks like the cable end on the right marked "CPU" goes into the PSU.

Yes i do have a cable like that, but it wont fit into the Unit nor can it grab onto the clip on the mobo.

I took a look at pictures of the cables that came with your PSU and it seems like that is the one you want to use. The solid end should plug into the PSU while the other end that splits into 2 P4 connectors plugs into the Mobo. Those 2 P4 connectors can be joined to create EPS12V plug that your Mobo most likely has although it is possible to run the mobo off only one of the P4 connectors.

Have you tried to reverse it? In the PIC where CPU printed to be on top and reverse it to face down?

Is that cable in the 2nd photo the only one marked "CPU"? Also, both ends in the photo are of the same cable right?

It's like the corsair AX850.

You can't use both 8 pin cpu plugs if your using two video cards that require two pci-e hookups each( 4 pci-e connections )

That other 12 pin cpu plug will have to go into the pci-E insert of your psu, but then you'll only be able to use two pci-E connectors for one or two cards.

Pretty stupid if you ask me.
