xfx 9800gt 512mb help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hello buddies , as i heard that a slot only gives 75watts , and i got a xfx 9800gt 512mb green edition stuff with no 6pin connectors , so i was wondering if i oc it , it will require more power , will the slot be able to give that power ?

btw i am getting a corei7 920 and a Asus P6T along with a 650watt psu , and will use the card as much oced with a cooler as it can be , so that i can enjoy good feame rates , till i get a better card

Some cards have a 6 pin and 8 pin power connector, most of the time you can connect two 6 pin connectors and the card will run. The extra 8 pin power connector is used for supplying extra power to the card if you want to overclock it.

a pcie slot cant even power a 9800gt at stock, let alone overclocked. hell the card wont even boot up. you have to connect the power connectors on the card. pcie slots only power part of the card.

Logic tells me no, but I'd like to know for certain too.

The green 9800GT cards don't have extra power connectors. Officially they're rated at 75W TDP and run at 1VCore. I've seen examples from XFX, Inno3D and Gainward/Palit.
