Would a TX750 power a RIVE?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My current power supply is a TX 750W (original), and it only has 1 4+4pin CPU connector. I noticed that high end boards (like the Rampage IV extreme) take two CPU power connectors.
If i am planning an upgrade for Haswell-E, and i get a mobo similar to this, will i need to upgrade my PSU to something with 2 cpu power connectors? or is there an adapter of some sort? please help me out!

You only need two CPU external power connectors if you have a dual CPU socket server board. The extra cpu external power connector on R4E is for show/LN2/LHe overclocking.

I do not know about specs for Haswell-E. I cannot imagine that a single CPU would require more than one CPU external power connection for water-cooling usage.

Usually the boards work fine with just the single CPU power plugged in.

If you're not having any problems then I wouldn't bother upgrading. The newer boards with more power sockets on them usually only put them there for 'Extreme' circumstances.
