Power connection confusion Hiper 530W Black Type M PSU on MSI P35 Neo2-FR iP35

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Firstly I would like to thank the members of this forum who have provided me with such great advice this past week. Thank you all.

My components got delivered yesterday and I begun my build last night after work. I have Installed the CPU, Huge Zalman cooler (if it keeps the CPU as cool as it looks I don't think I will have any problems with that , the memory and the MSI 8800GT 512MB GDDR3 (thanks for the advice on going for this card vs a 9600).

Now I am a little confused as to the power connections from my Hyper PSU. I have all of the case fans connected up, the Graphics card powered also. Should I be using ATX 24 pin power connector or the 8pin 12v power connector for the mother board? Do I need to use the jpwr1 socket to power the graphics card even though I already have the graphics card powered?

If there are any further details needed to help answer my questions let me know. Its been a long time since I built a comp from parts.

TIA

hi
you`ll be needing the 24 pin atx as well as the 8pin. although i have that psu and it didnt come with an 8 pin plug, just a four pin one. but it will work with just the four pin one in the corresponding part of the 8 pin socket. on my asus mother board half of the 8 pin socket has a little cap on it.
does that make sence? i hope so

havent bought a GPU in a while so i should think if its already powered by a 6 pin (i think) you should be good to go.

also consider filling in you system specs like below in the user cp \\/
makes it a lot easier on you instead of writing it out every time you post

Both 8 pin and 24 pin will be needed. My GPU isn't powered and my board is fine without the silly molex JP-1, But if you don't have a windowed case you may as well just put it in anyway.

but he/she stated they have an 8800gt which are powered so will be needing the connecter

god it can be hard to write in forums without sounding like your being pedantic/sarcastic.

It can be hard writing in forums so that people know what you mean.
He will need -
8 pin (or 4-pin)
24 pin
6 pin pci-e power

He may not need-
Aux molex for motherboard (I didn't mean the pci-e power, of course he needs that)


EDIT: The 8-pin just adds more stability for quad overclocking, otherwise the 4-pin works just fine.

and as i said the hyper i bought didnt come with an 8 pin connect so a 4 pin will do just fine.
it makes no differance as far as i can see. iv` easked why this is before and have been told the 8 pin just adds a bit morestability when overclocking.

i must ad this is all just from my experience and i could be completely wrong and will happily admit defeat if i am

oops double posted. lol i`m with you now coffeejunkie

Thanks for the helpful advice. Just to clarify so I don't blow up my new computer (touch wood), are you suggesting that I plug the 24pin power lead in as shown, and the additional power cord to the same ATX1 input bank, or to the power1 connector. The motherboard manual does not read very well, I suspect it has been translated from another language into English.

TIA

Chinglish is great to read.

It does not go to the same bank of plugs. The 24 pin will be near the mid-right of the board. The 4 pin will go into te middle or side of the 8-pin bank near the psu (Top left). See my pic -

make sure you use the molex as well,just to be safe,

my old dfi needed a molex and a floppy connector to run stable when o/c

This wont cause any problems? I am already powering the VGA card, the manual lead me to believe that this molex thing was to power the PCI-E slot.

TIA
