[SOLVED] Little confused with my Corsair AX750 for an SLI setup - Page 2

post #11 of 18

OK GUYS!
Thanks to everyone for your input - mystery solved - was that CPU connection as you guys pointed out.
In all honesty, no idea why I had done that, but it worked.
As you'll be able to see - THIS was what was connected to my CPU (as previously anticipated - same type of connection, just a different PSU slot):



And this is is how my PSU looks like now (extra PCI slot for the incoming GTX680):





I think it is a simple error to make - but quite a big one if you want to SLI - thus I can see why that other forum member on the corsair forums had posted. I'm pretty sure he had the SAME connection as I did.
in other words, we both must have looked: "Which is 4+4?" "Oh this one, and there we go, connected" - without thinking twice about it taking up the PCI slot.

Doesn't the manual explain all of this though?

Who looks at manuals good sir?! tongue.gif
Yeah might do - no idea. I have no idea where the manual is - never looked at it. Probably should have? lol

Found one online:
http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90499

Doesn't seem to mention it - only the amount of connectors it has.

Omg those idiots at Corsair didn't label it in the manual either. I would have had a drawing that matches the PSU with all of the ports labeled. Sigh.

 

This is yet another reason for me to not like Corsair.

haha That's OK guys.
I didn't buy the PSU because it didn't have labelled wires - but bought it due to the good Gold rating it had in reviews across the internet smile.gif
I know there might be better gold/platinum rated PSU out there, but so far I'm very happy with mine thumb.gif

The 80+ Certification is no way to judge the quality of a PSU though.

It isn't indeed - that's why I looked at the reliability at certain voltages on reviews.
I ALSO bought it due to the reliability that comes with it + warranty.

I don't want this to be a Corsair bashing thread.
I personally couldn't care about the brand - I buy per performance and price ratio.

For the same price I paid, I think I could have gotten a Seasonic X760 or an Antec.
Other brands, would come with warranty complications - for me in the UK.

EDIT:
Just googl'ed around - here we go - every single reviewer likes the AX750 and recommends it - it performs extremely well it seems - and that's why I bought it:
