Hooking this up - Do I need occupie all 14 pins or just either the group or 8 or the group of 6. Again the power requirments and plug in's keep changing over time and the manuals are worthless these days. At one time they got all the power from the pci slot. Then they added a four pin connector like to the hard drive. Then they added a special four pin square connector and the 4 pin connector like the hard drive but at that time it was either or... use the special four pin or the in line four pin.

So do I need occupy both groups of pins the group of 8 and the group of 6?

1st of all what type of Asus 570gx? DU2 version or generic?

Generic has 2 x 6pin connectors both need to be full

DU2 1x 8 1x6 i belive also both need to be occupied

i use 3 570gtx all pins are full

Make sure ur PSU is enough to power the card and have the PCI-E connectors..

Hooking up is easy, find a open PCI-e lane plug it in, screw video card to case.. and put in both PCI-E connectors turn on PC install drivers and Play

Yes, you need to connect ALL power connectors on the card.

Its this one "ASUS ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5 GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card"

It has 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin and I'm assuming both need be full. But would just like to know for sure.

Yes Thar, you need to connect every slot in that. This means that your power supply NEEDS to have a 6 pin and a 6+2 pin adapter at the very least. If it doesn't then you have to upgrade to a better power supply.
