Rampage IV Extreme Power Requirements

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Setting up my new computer. I'm guessing the answer is yes but I'm running out of power cords.. lol

On the Rampage IV Extreme there is obviously the 24pin that needs to be connected. There is also an 8 pin and 4 pin at
the top of the board and an additional 6 pin in the middle of the board. Do I need power to all of them?

I will be doing moderate overclocks to everything and the system has 4 video cards.

thanks

Yes, use the 6pin too. It gives additional power to your pci-E lanes.

The info is in the manual:

Thanks, I was looking at some other rigs and trying to see if I noticed others using the EZPLUG 4 pin plug for extra power to the DIMM's and
it doesn't look like it. I wonder if it's necessary. I'm guessing yes smile.gif WTB more plugs from my PSU smile.gif

Will be using 4 DIMM modules and 2 GPUs. Is there any reason to be pluggin in these extra power cabels for that?
The DIMMs will be running @ 2400 MHz and the GPUs will be overclocked with increased voltages.
