Power supply, 6 pin plug in 8 pin Tags: GPUs Power Supplies Components PCI Express Last response: September 22, 2013 12:56 PM in Components Share H4X3R September 22, 2013 12:41:40 PM Hey guys, my new GPU (Zotac 780 Amp!) will need 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin pci e connection. My question is: do i have to plug in all 8 pci e connections to the psu by the one that i plug into GPU that is the 6 pin?

I always reccomend that you never use adapters so if your PSU doesn't have a 8pin or 6+2pin plug on it get a new one.
