FSP BOOSTER to graphics card: question on color coded wires Tags: Power Supplies PCI Graphics Cards Components Product Last response: February 8, 2012 2:31 AM in Components Share samsax February 8, 2012 1:13:26 AM I am in the middle of installing a FSP Booster supplementary power supply into my Mac Pro to run a Nvidia GTX580. The FSP has four color coded wires: Two Red wires - one with 6 pin PCI, and oner with 8 pin PCI. Two Blue wires, one with 6 pin PCI, and one with 8 pin PCI. GTX 580 needs two 6 Pin connectors from power supply. Is it ok to attach one 6 pin from the blue wire and the other six pin from the red wired to the card? Or do I need to keep the same color wires attached the card? That would mean hooking up one 6 pin, and one 8 pin and leaving the extra two pins from the 8 pin free? Thanks.

I won't be able to complete this tonight, though. The wires aren't long enough to reach the card after I get the unit in. Going to have to get some kind of PCI extension cables. Anyone have a link to Newegg regarding what exactly I might need? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
