can any one help me?
Do i need to plug in both ends of a 2 molex to 6 pin pcie adapter ?
i have a msi gtx 470 witch has two 6 pin ports on the side.
i have one 6 pin connected direct from the psu but the other needs an adapter but do i connect the both molex ports? And if so from the same "string" of molexes or another

Sorry if this sounds stupid but i rele dont get it !

Many thanks

yes plug in both molex and each molex should be from a different string. An unused string (ie - no other devices on it) is preferred and use the molexes closest to the power supply that you can.
