My 850TX has 6xPCIE connectors..?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just bought a Corsair 850TX from another forum. The specs say it has 4xPCIE but the one I bought has 6! Is this some freakish mistake on their part?

I think there's a connection with Corsair going to the PSHII Platform, and the 6 PCIe connectors.

Though no one has confirmed this.

See if yours says CMPSU-850TX-C on the back, or if it doesn't have the -C.
