Proper way to connect power to M4A89TD-PRO/USB3 Motherboard.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Set up is in my system specs below.

My MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9td-pro%2fusb3

My PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...1026&Tpk=ea750

I have both 1 x ATX12V 4pin, 1 x EPS12V 8pin on psu and motherboard. This powers only CPU right. I'm asking because I've been having some randoms system crashes while gaming since I hooked up my crossfire setup and was wondering if maybe with my OC and dual cards and all the fans and such i may need to use the 8pin power instead of 4pin. Anyway i'm pretty much a noob so any help would be great.

Definitely use the 8-pin connector, it should help stabilize your OC.

I recommend you use the 8-pin connector with all yellow wire on one side and black wires on the other side
I have the same motherboard with a 955 on it.

so this will provide cleaner power right and maybe stablize the system alittle. are you having any problems with random crashing with your crossfire on this board? I guess your not. My setup worked flawless until I put in crossfire and added 4gb more ram. then i started somewhere in between getting completely random crashes while playing BFBC2 and NFSS. Like this


the only difference is that my video just freezes frame otherwise same sound and behavior. It does this in NFSS as well.

Well thank you guys. I'm using the 8pin ESP12v connection now. I don't notice any difference but I know that i'm getting more stable power now. I mean how could I not. LOL anyway thanks for you help!
