Refer back to my 1st post in this thread. Try plugging the two molex connectors into seperate lines on your psu. I seriously doubt that the HX-850 can't handle it on on single line (aka: rail) but it's worth a shot. Your GPU should be capable of getting more than enough power from the adapter, or Sapphire wouldn't include them.
Btw, I have the same vid card as you and tested mine all on a single rail (for the 8 pin) before I made the custom harness for my vid card. It worked perfectly. Edited by Lucky 13 SpeedShop - 4/18/11 at 6:39pm
