2 6pin PCI-e connections on one cable?

I have a video card that requires (2) 6pin pci-e connections, can I safely connect (2) 6 pins to it even if they are on the same cable, or is that too much power going through one cable?

  1. What make and model of power supply do you have? From the sound of it, it may be under-powered for your new video card (what make/model is it as well)?
  2. CPU: intel i5 2500K
    GPU: XFX 560 ti
    PSU: 550w Roswill


    power supply was the only component I was hoping I didn't have to upgrade.
  3. What model of Rosewill? If it is fairly new, it should already have 2 6-pin PCIe connectors.

    Sounds like you want to use a molex to PCIe adapter cable. Is that correct?
  4. I do have 2 pci-e connections on my PSU (factory connections, not adaptors) but they are running off the same cable, I was wondering if that was common to use for a graphics card or if it was too much power for one cable.
  5. They will be fine. Now I understand. Have fun.
  6. Thanks!

    (btw, its a RD 550N Stallion if that makes a difference at all.)
