PSU connection help needed please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My friend owns a Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W PSU.

On this power supply there are 2 dedicated PCI Express ports.

However he believes he doesnt have to use those for his video card since the hard wired cables provide a 6 pin.

Should he use the hard wired 6 pin for his graphics card? or use the dedicated PCI Express modular cable?

You are talking about the Molex > PCI-e adapters, right?

They look like this.

In this situation it would be better to use the ones that come off of the PSU as they are probably on their own dedicated 12v rail.

Doesn't matter. Single Rail design, 2x 6 pins are there for graphic cards... no need to plug in either of the "extra" 2x 6+2 pins

what I am asking..

there is a 6 pin connected to the PSU

There is 2 red PCI Express ports that are modular.

Should he used the already connected 6 pin for his graphics card, or attach the modular cables for his graphics card since they are dedicated PCI Express?

Doesn't matter. Might as well use the one connected to the PSU already.
