Reply to BPTMatthew m 0 l Someone Somewhere May 1, 2014 2:46:15 AM If the sockets are there, you need to use them. Having insufficient cords is generally a sign that your PSU isn't up to the job.

Get the answer VincentP May 1, 2014 2:50:58 AM The GPU has rated power maximum power of 175W. 16x PCI-E slot ca provide 75W. 6-pin PCI-E auxiliary connector can provide 75W. So yes, this card requires two 6-pin PCI-E auxiliary connectors. If your PSU is rated at 34A or higher on the combined +12V rails, you should be fine to use molex to PCI-E power adapters for the extra connector if your power supply doesn't have it.
