Please help first system build question about psu connectors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok i have a

Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

and a Asus eah6870 (the one totally enclosed) gpu

1st question, My gpu has 2 PCI-E power connectors, both six pin, Do i plug in both of my psu's PCI-E Connectors into it or only one (If one which one). My GPU came with a dual Molex into PCI-E Connector so do i use that or can i use my psu's pci-e connectors straight?


Thank you all in advance!

Both, or it won't power on. And just use your PSU's six pin PCI-E connectors.

Yes, both or it wont work. The molex adapters will not perform as well, I think you will find in the manual it recommends the 2 6-pins if available.
