GTX580 / Corsair AX1200 setup question Tags: Graphics Cards Corsair Power Overclocking Last response: November 29, 2011 11:56 AM in Overclocking Share cheekis November 29, 2011 2:54:27 AM My GTX580 is equipped with an 8 pin and a 6 pin plug for power. The Corsair AX1200 PSU comes with an 8 pin cord, however not a 6 pin cord. Should I simply use an additional 8 pin cord and leave the 2 pin attachment hang?

I have an ax-850, mine the 8pin connector has 2 pins not attached to the other 6 to do just this, I assume yours is the same. | Report abuse chesteracorgi Graphics card Expert Overclocking Expert November 29, 2011 11:56:54 AM Benikens is correct. The power cords that are configured as 6 + 2 are designed to be used with both 6 and 8 pin GPUs. The design is so that the PSU manufacturers provide compatibility for more GPU configurations. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Overclocking>GTX580 / Corsair AX1200 setup question> Related ressources: ForumThermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1475M 1475W vs CORSAIR AX1200 ForumCorsair AX1200 - Question ForumIs the Corsair AX1200 enough for 3-way SLI GTX 680?
