Basic question about plugging a GPU with 2x 8pins
Aug 3, 2013, 8:45 AM
Hey, so I have a pretty noob question since I've never plugged a GPU that wasn't a single 6-pin GPU.
So I have a Thermaltake TR2 RX 750w
I will want to plug a GPU with 2x8pins. The way the wires are set up, I have 2 non-modular (I believe) PCI-e cables; one 6 pin and one 6+2.
Now, those red outputs on the PSU... that's the modular PCI-e right? So if I use one non-modular PCI-e 6+2 and use one modular PCI-e 6+2 for my GPU, it should be fine right?
