post #581 of 1832
Quick question about connecting my 560 ti 448 core gfx to the PSU. Do I need to use two PCI-E cables or can I use both connectors from a single cable? Kind of confused as to why t here are two 6 pin connectors. On my old non-modular PSU each PCI-E cable only had one 6 pin.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just bought this puppy for $99 bucks on black friday!

You can use both connectors on the single cable. The reason for that how the 12v rail is distributed. My 570 is connected the same way in my radioactive rig on a ocz psu.

If the pc powers on but shuts down when you start playing that's when you use 2 different cables.

Has he just pulled the hybrid fan switch blue cover off ? It looks like the nr9699's x-750 - but I can't find any pix of any X series - apart from the big 1050/1250 - with a hybrid fan switch. Esp not at seasonic's site tongue.gif

ADD: Oh. my bad. coupla pages back, GeneO shows off his new x-850 - 2012 model - with the hybrid fan and other new features ... still not showing on the 'egg as the new model. ohwell

This is my first full build and I went with a Seasonic X-750

This is my official can I join the club photo.




While I am here (and at the risk of cross-posting) I have a question;
I have the 7970 hooked up with 2 power cables from the PSU (as per the instructions from XFX) but I really don't like the way that looks.
Can I just connect the 8 and 6 pin blocks off a single lead from the PSU?

Either the recommendation to use 2 separate cables is to accommodate for lesser quality multi-rail PSUs or the cables have 2 sets of blocks on them for use with less demanding GPUs. I see this question has been asked (about other GPUs) so I think I am safe to use just one, but can anyone verify that it will be 100% solid?
Any input would be appreciated.
