question about crossfire

do you have to plug in the power connectors for the second card. i notice that when i disconnect them and as long as the bridge is connected, the card is running. i hear it's fan. is that supposed to be. i am doing a crossfire between 4880 and 4870. i just assumed you had to plug in power connectors to both cards, which means 2 6 pin for each. can somebody clarify this for me.

Yes, you need to plug in the power connectors for both cards.
Does CCC see the other card? You absolutely have to power both cards.
that's what i thought and what i did originally. but when i disconnected the power plugs from the 4870, it was still running. in all the tools (CCC, GPU-Z), it shows both cards.
