it is enough and can run it. i would go easy with overclocking though as it isnt such quality unit.

as it does not have enough pcie connectors i have to use an adaptor from 6 pin to two molex connectors, whic are also powering 2 hdd and 1 ssd. At full load it drops to 0 usage then back up every so often

isnt this psu you have? Litepower 600W it provides 1x6pin pcie and 1x6+2pcie power connectors. as far as im concerned gtx760 require either 2x6pin or 1x6+2. these cables are only to power the gpu and nothing else. any psu provides molex power cables to power hdd-ssd and your provide x5. i cannot see the need of any adapter!

Hi Mitchrigg
you are correct the GeForce GTX 760 requires 30A on the +12v rail and a 500W PSU minimum
At 600w and a combined +12v rail of 53A you should be fine,
however as chris987 said that is a poor quality psu with low grade capacitors
You may use this PSU , but i would advise getting a better psu from

Seasonic/xfx or any psu from corsairs TX,HX or AX range of PSU's
for a good one they are not that expensive

that problem of yours may be happening due to the interference of the hdd-ssd. however, if after applying the correct configuration, still that problem persists, you need to replace that psu

Ok so the 760 has 1, 6 pin connector and 1 8 pin connector because it has the evga acx cooler. The PSU has two 6 pin connectors which means i had to use an adaptor that came with the GPU.
Here are some pics so show what i have done:
The two 6 pins connect to 6 to 8 pin adapter:
http://
The two molex connect to a molex to 6 pin adapter which came with the gpu:

(sorry for bad quality)

My mistake the molex cables is only connected to the gpu and 2 fans.

well, thats odd, thermaltake states otherwise. aparently you have some other variation of that psu. dont use adapters. you are trying to draw more from what can actually give, by using the adapter which should be avoided. replace the psu to one that meets the cable requirements.form the above recommended the ts is the better option, as it newer and haswell compatible(in case you have a haswell cpu) (6pin pcie power connectors are limited to 75w compared to the 6+2 which are rated for 150w.)
