I have a modxstream pro 700w modular psu and it has 2 +12v rails each at 25A which is easily enough to power 2 560s, however the modular cables included are one 6 pin and a seperate 8 pin. The psu only has to ports to plug in PCIE cables, meaning I can only use the included cables to power one 560. Do molex to 6 pin and molex to 8 pin adaptors provide the power necessary to power another 560? Feel free to leave any questions below. Also, sorry if this is in the wrong section. I couldn't choose between power supplies and graphics cards
Yes that is why they make them. Also the 8 pin that you have does the end have the 6+2 split end ? The power supplies now all have the split ends so you can use either a 6 pin or 8 pin depending on what you need.
hm, im not so sure about using more then one adapter, much less 3-4 of em.. i mean if the psu didn't come with the connectors then it can't be good for it...
At the time of manufacture the PSU manufacturers have to guess what cable combinations will be the most useful. Hardware changes weeks. There is nothing wrong with using quality adapters plugged into the 4-pin Molex 12v power connectors.
Now that I look I'm seeing a ton of bad reviews for my power supply. Should I return it and get a more trustworthy one? If so what should I get? I'm looking to stay around the $100 range and at least get 700w out of it. Pref modular too.
