8 Pin PCI Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a Corsair TX750 PSU and I am about to add an R9 290 to my system. The problem I have is that I took the +2 part of the 6+2 pci connector off when I sleeved my cables. I marked it so that I would know which goes where if I ever needed to re-add it. Well now I do and I want to be sure that I got it right so that I don't fry my brand new GPU.

My question is, is there a simple way that I can test that I have the wires in the right spot? I have access to a multimeter if that would help.

Here is the way that I have it right now, maybe some of you can tell by eye.

The middle wire goes to the bottom of the 2 and the left wire goes to the top.


Thanks in advance guys.

Corsair HX620 has it the same as you describe....
BUT different models are bound to have different pinouts from The PSU end - so multi meter best way to test.

clip at front as in your pic....
Front left goes to the one next to it - front of the 2 pin
Front middle goes to back of the 2 pin.

The images I have found online look like they are the same as your picture as well as mine. Feeling more confident now, but I would like a few other confirmations haha

A friend of mine had the exact same PSU as me, I was able to take a look at his and it looks like I have it right, thanks for the help fast_fate.
