power cable to GPU

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi just a quick question on the extra power need by gpu's by the psu's.
How can you tell if it is working or not? and does t it need to be a specific cable that you put into the gpu?

Well, on my GPU, on startup, a red LED lights up, and since it detects the power supply is good, the LED goes off. If the power cable isn't in there, I presume it stays on.

Also there would be a popup message when windows starts saying that your GPU isn't getting enough power and it lowers your clocks to a state where it can work with the low amount of power it's getting. It could damage your card/slot though.

If your power cable isn't working your computer will freak out beeping. My buddy has that problem wiht his 9800pro, when the cable isn't in right it'll go to a warning screen and nonstop beep. If thats not happening to you, you shoudl be ok.
