Do my PSU is enough for crossfire ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Can i do crossfire with CHIEFTEC CFT-600-14CS 600W ? I want crossfire Gigabayte Radeon HD5850oc and Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Toxic. Rest of specification of my PC is Mobo Asus Rampage III Gene, I7-930@4GHz.

Short answer: yes

You'll need three adapters though, that unit comes with such a poor cable arrangement that it makes you wonder what amoebas are designing these products...

So can you explain me in simple words what should i do now ? tongue.gif because i don't understood all. I got enough power 600 W to do crossfire but i don't understand what you mean with adapters?

Two 5850s will require 4x PCIe connectors, and your power supply has only one, so you'll need three Molex to PCIe adapters to be able to power the cards smile.gif
The PSU is a solid CWT unit and does offer enough power for your intended setup smile.gif

Actually that's incorrect information.. your PSU does come with two(2) PCIe connectors so you'll need only two adapters smile.gif

This is what you need, the cost should be minimal... most cards come with such adapters bundled smile.gif

Your PSU will be fine for 2 5850s... even 2 5870s would be fine. smile.gif
