hi guys

so basically i have an asus gtx 970 that has an 8pin socket and i have a corsair cx600m psu that has a 6pin socket.

    Look thru your cx600m box for the two 6+2 pin cables that came with it otherwise see if you can buy them from corsair.

    The CX600M comes with a single modular cable that has two 150 Watt (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors on it. The cable shown on the left in this picture:


    The solid 8-pin end of that modular cable should be plugged into the 6+2 PCI-E & 4+4 CPU socket on the PSU's modular interface panel shown on the bottom right of this CX600M image:

    No way. That's the 8 Pin CPU connection, not a 6+2 connection.

    Will using only the 6 pin connection on the top-right of the PSU face power the 8 pin connection on the GPU though?
