@Cpryo: Where in MA mate?

Thanks guys.

So I do as I showed in my diagram? I don't use the cords that came with my motherboard?

I just use 4xPCI-e that came with my PSU and take the 8 pin side of one of them and plug that into the 8 slot. Then I take the 6+2 pin and only install the 6 pin part?

What do I do with the other side? When I use the 8 pin connector, do I plug the 6+2 pins into the PSU? Just the 6 pin?

When I use the 6+2 pin connector, do I plug the 8 pin side into the PSU?

Sorry, I guess I'm still really confused

Every cable you use should be a PCI-E, the side with 8 goes into the PSU, and the 6+2 side goes into the graphics card.

Only use the cables that came with your AX.

What youve said above is correct.

Your making this more difficult than it should be, this is the easiest part of building a computer.

Thanks mastical.

Okay last clarification, here are pics:

This is the AX1200 PCI-e cable. The first one that you can't really see is the 8 pin. In the back is the 6+2.



So I plug the 8 pin into the GPU 8 pin slot and then I plug the 6 pin into the PSU? Or do I plug in the 6 AND 2 pin?

Then in the GPU 6 pin slot I plug in the 6 pin and disregard the 2 pin? Then I plug the 8 pin into the PSU?

So the PSU gets 8 pins no matter what?

This is what came with my mobo:

Always plug the 8pin side into the PSU. the 6+2 will always go to the GPU. Ignore the cable from your motherboard.

You plug the 8 pins into the PSU and the 6+2 into the card. I suppose it would technically work the other way, but that's how Corsair designed it. Don't use the 2x6 pin to 8 pin adapter, you don't need it.

Dont use that yellow thing.

All 8pin ends go into the psu.

The other end of the 8pin goes intot he 580
The 6+2 pin goes into the 580 but only the 6 pin part.

I didnt think the end were reversable, the psu part of the cables is blue on mine when it does into the psu and black on the other end.

Okay so instead of doing what I said, I will be plugging in the 6+2 pin into the GPU 8 pin slot and the 6+2 pin into the GPU 6 pin slot (minus the 2 pins)?
