Are you saying my motherboard may not need the 8 pin plugged in? How do i know, Its a gigabyte X58-USB3 running a i7 950??

thanks


No it will need it, I'm saying use an 8 pin extension rather than a molex adapter.

What is the make and model of your psu?

I can't hear it but it looks like you've switched your adapters onto your cards.
Its better to have the 8 pin direct into the socket how you have it now.
If you brought an 8 pin extension you would have cable to play with and manage it better, maybe small tie wraps.

Hang on if this is your psu the blue pins are your 8 pin the red ones are your pci-e.
Looks like you have your 6+2 pin pci-e cable plugged in your 8 pin atx??
The red ones go in your graphics card and the 2x4pin blue ones go in your 8 pin socket.

your right, I just fixed that, so the CPU 8 pin atx is now connect to the Blue cord, but the reason why im using the adapters for the GPU is because the 6+2pin pci-e cables are way to thick and stiff that the side panel can not close, they stick out to much, and when i try to force it down it pulls on the GPU downwards, so the adapters were more flexible......

So if the blue cable is a bit short get the 8 pin extension.

You really want to use the specific pci-e cables if you can rather than the adapters.
They handle more power than the molex adapters and are made for the job.

You would be better with pci-e extension if you really can't get it to work.

okay, so now everything is using the regular psu cords except one slot on the GPU is using the adapter, Ill just deal with the one smaller slot using the adapter, but its all good looking now! 8)http://img.tomshardware.com/forum/uk/icones/biggrin.gif

As long as you have at least one real pci-e and one adapter you should be fine. [:bohleyk:1]
