Hi guys. I have a Sapphire 7970 OC edition GPU and was wondering something. It has 2 power connections, 1 X 6 and 1 X 8 pin. I have connected them both, is this right? It seems to be working ok but not sure it its getting the right power for its maximum potential.

If both connections are used, that is intended.

If it has a 6+8 pin, give it a 6+ 8 pin.

So yes, this is right.

Both power connectors must be connected or when powered on it will squeal like a little girl at a Justin Beiber concert. Try it, I dare you
