Power supply and SLI help

Hello, I currently have a Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze. I just picked up my second EVGA GTX 760 Dual FTW 4GB. I've read that my PS has more then enough wattage but my problem is it only one 8 pin PCI cable. Can I just buy another 8 pin cable? or am I in need of a whole new PS?

  1. Per the specs of your power supply, it should have come with two 6-Pin PCI-E and two 6+2-Pin PCI-E. Each EVGA GTX 760 Dual FTW 4GB card (that I'm finding) requires one 6-pin and one 6+2 pin (or 8-pin) PCI-E power cable. You should already have all the necessary cables.

    Hi - That PSU includes 2 - 6pin pcie and 2 - 6+2(8)pin pcie connectors, more than enough to run 2 760's in
    SLI. Check your cables, they came with the PSU.
  3. I assure you, mine came with 1 6+2 and 3 6 sadly. But I guess based on what you've found, I should just be able to buy another 8 pin and use it?
  4. So just to update, I've looked at the paperwork that came with it and you guys are right in what it should have came with. (Not that I doubted you but I wanted to be prepared when I called the shop I bought it at :p) I called the shop I bought the PS at and told them about the mix up in the box and even though it wasn't their fault they gladly offered me a 6+2 pin cable free of charge. Thanks for the help :)

    That's something you should have brought up with Thermaltake when you first noticed the discrepancy. Regardless, based on the part number found on this page - TRX-750M, I would say that this is the cable you need.

  7. Yeah I totally understand it was a thermaltake issue, I just want to hook up my new card now and not wait for their slow response. I called the shop looking to buy a cable if they had one available and after our conversation the guy just told me to come get one he had laying around, don't want to give the impression I blamed it on them and grossed them out or anything lol. :p

    P.S. thanks for the help :)
