SeaSonic X750 [serious question] - Page 2

post #11 of 18
You should be fine. By the looks of it, it has two 12pin connections on the psu for pci-e which should mean that there is a double 6+2 pci-e power connectors going to each of those 12 pin connectors so you'll have four 6+2 power connectors by using both of those. I don't see what that review means because there are didicated 8 pin and 4 pin connectors on the psu for the cpu cables. Maybe they're doing something wrong or they want to use both 8 pins for the cpu which is absolutely unnecessary since you're most likely not going to push more than 300 watts into the cpu. You'll be able to use an 8 pin or 4 pin cpu power cable as well as all four 6+2 pin pci-e power cables at the same time no problem

The 4+4 cpu cable goes into the pci-E insert of the psu. There is only so many inserts on the psu and it's either going to bb having two 8 pin cpu plugs going and two pci-E power plugs or four pci-E power plugs and one 8 pin cpu cable.

Simple as that.

Yeah, shame I didn't fully study the product - but I have faith in the strong numbers of OCN members who recommended this power supply time.

The two red arrows is the only spot you can have two 8pin cpu cables inserted. Notice how it takes from one of the pci-E insert.?

Just like the AX850 and AX750. I've had the AX850, it's the same psu as the x750, but more wattage.

I suppose there is nothing stopping anyone from putting molex-to-pcie adapters on the very plentiful peripheral slots.

I guess no one would be running 3 high-powered cards on a 750W unit anyway.

That review is total BS. I am running 2 video cards that take 2 power apiece plus the power to my board. It works totally fine

I would assume the layout of a 750 is the same as a 850, and mine doesn't seem to have this issue.

Just like the AX850 and AX750. I've had the AX850, it's the same psu as the x750, but more wattage.
Indeed, the PCIe connectors on the X 750/850 are designed to support both EPS and PCIe(it's the reason why they are 12pin connectors) even though they are electrically different.. the PSU however supports one EPS 8pin + one ATX 4pin without touching the PCIe connectors, which is more than the vast majority of motherboards require..
Excuse my unmannered approach, didn't closely check the X series in a while.
