6+2 pin connector question (noob)
Apr 3, 2014, 10:06 PM
Hey guys I'm just installing my rma'd gigabyte r9 280x and have plugged in the two 6 pin connectors but the +2 pin goes in but doesn't go in as far as the 6 pins when connected, Is this normal?
looks like its about 4-5mm out from being right in

You need to connect the 6 and 2 pin bits before plugging them in.

yea the 2 pin part kinda slids into a grove on the 6 pin part and should be able to go in flush
