XFX 4890 - One of these things is not like the other...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am in the (somewhat) final stages of assembly of my first rig and I have hit a wall... again. I recently bought an XFX 4890 from a guy on this site and it arrived yesterday. Lo and behold, it has an aftermarket cooler on it! Bonus!

Here is the issue:

the power plug for the fan on the CARD is a two pin

The plugs coming from the aftermarket cooler are 3 and 4 pin (see picture)


How do I power this thing? I cant find anywhere else to plug it in!

Is it an Arctic Cooler? There should have been an adapter that came with it
If not it still is the same plug

Here is a link

Is that the power cable that comes from your cooler???

IF so that type of 4 pin plugs straight into the videocard

EDIT: the connector where you have to plug it in is in the picture?? :?

I think this wins. For some reason, there are no adapter cables to make the power cords from the arctic cooler work with the power slot on the GPU itself. I really wish I could finish this build today... *sigh*
