I'm currently running a Corsair HX650 Advanced High Performance PSU. I'll be upgrading my equipment soon (including the PSU), but I've still got a question regarding this unit.
My GTX 780 (EVGA Classified one) has just arrived, and I'd like to give it a test run.
It requires two 8-pin PCIe connectors. My PSU only has 6+2 pin connectors available, but I've read those should work just fine.
I've currently got 2 output slots for 6-pin PCIe cables available on the PSU. Both those cables, if used, split into two 6+2 pin connectors.
My question is:
Can I use a single cable to power the GPU (thus using one PSU output slot, one cable and the 2 6+2 pin connectors at the end of that single cable
Do I have to use the two sperate outputs on my PSU, run two cables and use one 6+2 pin connector on each cable to provide plenty of power to my GPU?
Honestly, PSU technicalities isn't my strong suit, so I rely on you guys to provide some advice If only one cable can do the job, that's the route I'd go obviously, cable managment wise.
