Hello all!

I just have a quick question about my new motherboard, the Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z. I am wondering what the two 4-pin molex connectors are for on the board? The user guide says nothing about them and others say it is extra power for the PCIe slots. If you guys could help me out, that would be great! Thanks!

In Guru3D's review of the ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z they said that "You can even provide extra power to the graphics cards through two MOLEX plugs."

Each graphics card can draw up to 75 Watts through the PCI Express x16 slot so ASUS added the two EZ Plug connectors (4-pin Molex Power connectors) for that purpose.
