OFFICIAL:NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX/+ & GTS250 Owners Thread - Page 70

post #691 of 815
I am so glad I emailed MSI before recycling this card, turns out the power supply shorting out upon startup is a known issue with some of these. I just can't believe no one else in this forum has had the same problem. They even said they'll replace it with something better if the 9800GTX is out of stock (which is more than likely i'm sure). I'll just have to wait and see...
Thanks to those who gave suggestions, I tried EVERYTHING but it looks like this one is going back.

Just curious. I have a 9800gtx+ sitting around. It only has 1 PCI-E power connector. All the videos and reviews I've seen on them show it as having 2. Is this a revision?
In progress.

I read in a few reviews that some have 2 to assist in overclocking. Maybe they thought 2 were needed and then realized 1 was enough w/ a bios tweak?

The 1 pci-e 9800gtx+ is a revision. The first ones that came out were 2 6pin pci-e connectors.

See above^^

But I will say that the one's with 2 pci-e connectors the fan spins a bit faster and generally stays cooler (at least from my experience). Out of the 5 9800gtx+'s I have, only 1 has the 2 pci-e connectors.

At the time I was buying them it was the best bang for buck that had tri-sli capability. I have 3 in my main rig and the one I built for my parents have 2-way sli.
