new graphics card, power connector (gtx 560 ti)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my old graphics card (afaicr) only had one power connector, my new gtx 560 ti appears to have two spots for power connectors from the PSU.


Do I plug power connections into both slots, or just one? Both are the same type of slot (the 6 hole kind).


also, kind of off topic, but I'm installing my hard drives and it says not to fold the sata cables at a 90 degree angle. I'm now getting kind of paranoid and barely bending them so that they don't even come close to a 90 degree angle. This is really making it much more difficult to plug them in to the hard drives. So basically how much can I bend them?

Just don't kink them and you're fine. Don't right-angle them, you can put them through a loop with like a 1" diameter. They BEND great, but do not KINK them.

Or buy a couple of sata cables with 90 degree connectors.
