Closed GTX 560 + PCI-E Adapter Tags: Power Supplies Gtx Cooler Master Pci Express Components Last response: December 2, 2012 9:20 AM in Components Share DarkWolf2k December 1, 2012 8:17:53 AM I was wanting to run a GTX 560 Ti 2gb but my current PSU doesn't have a single PCI-E connector. My old CoolerMaster eXtremePower 500w has one PCI-E and I have an adapter. Would I be able to run this 560 off of my old PSU? If so will I be able to OC still?

So i suggest a new PSU That 560 needs ~220W and 560 ~220W on peak so i suggest getting a XFX 550W Core Pro for 54$ at ncix | Report abuse hytecgowthaman December 1, 2012 8:27:26 AM Use old coolermaster psu Or buy new psu | Report abuse DarkWolf2k December 1, 2012 9:35:44 AM ATX 2.01 standards vs 2.3 or w/e. Power supply won't supply enough to the vid card to power it? | Report abuse Best solution prototype18 Power supply Authority December 1, 2012 10:06:01 AM Well that PSU its not really strong. You have 16A on 12 V rail (you have 2 rails). And 192W on each rail. I cant find any review about that PSU but i think it will handle it but w/o OC. That 560 Ti needs 16.7A+ on 12 V rail . So 200W GPU 95W Cpu 15W Hdd 25W Dvd 16W RAm =351W And you need 25A for CPU and GPU . So to end it here i recommend buying a new PSU. Maybe XFX 550W Pro Core for 54$ | Report abuse DarkWolf2k December 2, 2012 7:30:42 AM Best answer selected by DarkWolf2k. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>GTX 560 + PCI-E Adapter> Related ressources: ForumPerformance of gtx560 TI OC in PCI-E 1.0 and 2.0 ForumWin 7 64 Bit, GTX 560 Driver Display Adapter problem ForumMolex to PCIE connectors safe for gtx560 ?
