ASUS IV Crosshair IV Formula - doubt with EATX12v? - Page 2

So, you think I need to connect 8 pin? Is that my PSU has 4 pin only...

But yet my PSU is modular, and allows to connect two cables PCI-E to two GPU's, and these cables are 8 pin ... and also 12v.. Is it possible to connect a PCI-E cable of these to the motherboard?

Look:

Red and green, for two GPUS.
You can use a 4-pin but it will limit your overclocking ability. You can get a molex to 8-pin CPU connector, every PSU has plenty of molex connectors:

Looks a bit ugly though.

Ahh, and with that adapter would be like if my PSU has a cable 8pin?

With this motherboard the idea is to squeeze everything I can my Phenom II 965, but it would be foolish to have this highend motherboard and not OC...

Would getting a new PSU be out of the question? Your current one is lacking connectors and it's not the best quality unit in the world.

I can not afford to change now PSU, and that it is not the best ... will be for the wattage, it is 80 Plus Bronze, and has very good quality, stability, amperage, etc ... Be Quiet falls short of the Corsair.

I really do not need more watts because I have an HD 5770, and does not consume anything smile.gif just the day to change to a more powerful, have to change.

So do that, buy that adapter to enjoy the overclocking.
