Capstone 750-M and PCIe connectors (6 and 8 pin)

Hello Everyone,

I've never built a PC with a PCI-e card needing extra-power before and I have a doubt I hope you can help me resolve.

The GPU: Gigabyte GTX 670, has 2 power connectors (6 pin and 8 pin)
The PSU: Capstone 750-M, has 1 cable with two 6+2 PCI-e connectors.

My question is: ¿can I use that one cable to plug the 6 and 8 pin connectors in the graphics card?
or should I use it only for the 8 pin connector and use a Molex to 6-pin PCI-e adaptor for the other one?

Thanks

  1. Your Capstone comes with 4 x 6+2 so a none issue, use 6 in one connector and 6+2 in the 8 pin. I guess it is two cables and you are fine just using one of them being a single rail unit on the +12 volts.
  2. It actually came with 1 cable with 2 6+2 connectors in the other end. (I guess that's 2x 6+2)
    So.. would it be fine to just use that one?
    I mean, if it's supposed to be able to handle 2 GPUs, why not the two connectors of one, right?

    Then you got shorted a cable since since all quality 750watt's come with 4 connections. I would contact retailer http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182264 specifies 4 x 6+2 so that should have been two cables.
    Yes you are fine using both connectors on 1 cable.
