Question about molex to 6 pin connector

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i am planning to connect a GPU that has 2x8 pin (980 Ti G1) to my Seasonic S12II via one of those:



I plan on using the 8 pin my PSU already has and the connector above with the 6 Pin my PSU has and this:



I know it's not optimal,but i have no reason to change my PSU since it has a decent 12V at 480W and i don't even think i will ever go over 400W on the 12V.

What i wanted to know,is that molex to 6 pin adapter ok? I happen to have one of those from a old R9 280. I have read online that 6 pin has 3 12V lanes or similar meanwhile molex has only 2. I don't want to buy a new connector if i don't have to.

It should be fine. The ones that have 2xMOLEX to 1x6pin are considered better, but I have not had issues with either, and I've used some rather hungry cards smile.gif
