Closed Which PSU wire to plug into new 6950? Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: February 11, 2011 3:36 PM in Components Share 454xalucard February 9, 2011 10:54:34 PM So I just got an HIS 6950, the quick start guide isn't really helping with this problem at all. So my PSU is 800 watts, my old card was a GTS 250, which had ONE of these 6 pin plugs plugged into it, however I found a second one bundled up to the side. (I got my computer from Cyberpowerpc) I'm assuming I use both of these to power the 6950? It also came with two dual MOLEX to 6 pin adaptors but I don't think I need to use them?

Be happy you dont melt your connector. :-) Score 0 454xalucard February 9, 2011 11:01:22 PM So by the second one you mean the one that's at the bottom of the picture?

Ask ! Get the answer linh6496 February 9, 2011 11:11:07 PM Yes use the 2nd 6-pin as well as the one you used for the GTS 250. The 6950 has 2 sockets for those 6-pins cable to go in. You don't need to use the molex to 6 pin converter Score 0 454xalucard February 9, 2011 11:12:38 PM Right, but each cable has two 6-pin connectors on them. Does it matter which one i sue? Score 0 linh6496 February 9, 2011 11:14:27 PM nope. as seen in your picture, the bottom right cable is split into two 6-pins connectors, so just use those. Score 0 454xalucard February 9, 2011 11:20:37 PM Alright, that makes sense, but just to clarify (I'm very prone to mess something up.) Do I use both Red, both purple, or both blue. Score 0 Best solution linh6496 February 9, 2011 11:23:44 PM Actually it does not even matter which combination of those connectors you choose to match, as long as they are 6-pins, you are okay. Just choose the combination which makes your cable management neater. Share 454xalucard February 9, 2011 11:24:30 PM Alright sweet, thanks a lot.
