What cable is this?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I purchased a Seasonic M12 ii bronze 620W PSU and there are two cable that im not quite sure they are used for. One of them lists PCI-E on it but I have two of these. Both are a 6 pin but one of them has a another wire coming off of it that has an extra 2 pins on it and I dont know which one goes to the Graphics card. And whats the other one for?

The second question is I have two cable that are both 8pin. One is split into two 4 pin connectors which is the one I believe I use but there is another 8 pin that does not split and have no clue what it goes to.

Looked at the manual and it was zero help.

  • 8-Pin (And 4-Pin) is for the CPU power , depends if your motherboard requires a 8-Pin cable or a 4-pin or sometime high-end enthousiasts motherboard requires both connections
  • 6-Pin / 8-Pin are for the Graphic cards power

As you can see, the +12v and the Ground are not the same on each Connectors.




As Example the Asus Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard, this is where the 8-Pin and/or the 4-pin is connected





And for a graphic card and the 6-pin / 8-pin power connectors
