860i pci-express cables question...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just got the 860I today and description says 6 pci express connectors but two of the cables have 2 6+2 pin on one cable.

My question is that one cable enough to power my 780, which I have 2 so it's not a huge problem but I don't want to install and have it not work.

I will be overclocking and have need on one extra 6 pin express port for mpower pci add-on power.

If it will work to fine then yay less cable clutter.

Quick response appreciated, thanks.

You could use the one cable with two pci-E ends. If you plan to run 1.3v or some other amount of high voltage through your GTX 780, then it's advisable to use two separate pci-E cables.

High voltage will really strain those cables and it's quite possible to have it melt or burn.
