I have a Gateway 6810 computer with a 550 watt power supply. I updated the graphics card with new gigabyte 4850.
My PSU has 2 PCIe 8 pin connectors and 6 6pin connectors that are all female. My graphics card has a 6 pin female plug.
I have searched for some type of male to male cable to connect my graphics card to my PSU. I havnt been able to find anything.
Does anybody have any advice for me to get this to work? Can i make my own cable from two male cable ends?
I have no molex connectors in my computer case. I have 6 pin connectors that go to cables with all sata connectors at the end. I have 4 more free 6 pin female outlets on my PSU and 2 free 8 pin connectors labeled PCIe. I have a female 6 pin connector on my graphics card. Any ideas on where to find a Male to Male 6 pin cable to go from my PSU to my GC?
I have no male 6 or 8 pin connectors. I just have the sockets in the PSU
The problem is both the PSU and the GC need a male connector. I need a 6 pin male to 6 pin male cable and i havnt found one with a lot of searching.
My PSU has 2 PCIe 8 pin connectors and 6 6pin connectors that are all female.
I think you may be confused about the male/female aspect. Have you tried actually inserting the plugs into the connectors? No PSU I know of has PCIe plugs that don't mate with their graphic card receptacles whether they be 6 pin, 8 pin, or 6+2 pin.
