Hey,

I am new to this community and I bought a GTX560 based on the review from the site, which make me very excited.

However, when I am trying to install the EVGA GTX560 TI to my Dell server, I have problem for the power supply. It seems that my power supply doesn't have the corresponding power socket for card, in both quantity and type.

The GPU comes with two 6-pin ATX to 4-pin (flat) cords.

My server only have one socket available and like this.

I tried to search online but just could not find any socket like this one. Wondering if it is possible to have some converter so that it can probably split from this 12-pin thing into two 6-pin female connector to the GPU?

Thanks so much.

Hi.

Time for a new psu maybe. Powering a GTX560Ti with molex adapters isn't a good idea anyway.

What psu do you have ?

I just bought the server actually, it is a dell 550w power supply, and i am not sure about it.

Do you have a type/model of the server ?

If it's a Dell "Server" it probably has a proprietary power supply. And usually just good enough for the existing hardware. Get a new power supply (Coursair, Seasonic, Antek) of at least 450w with enough 6 pin connectors and try it out. Hopefully it will work with the GPU and your motherboard.

If that connector uses a 12v pinout ( 6x 12v / 6x ground ) a Seasonic X series cable will work

Using one molex adapter is OK (I've been doing so for over a year now) I wouldn't advise using two though.

No two molex adapter mean the above cable is not "advise"? I am also concerned about it.
It might not provide enough power?

This looks really good. Do you think it might be a problem to power my GPU with this cable?

THanks

As long as the 12 pin Dell connector uses the 12v pinout I mentioned earlier it would be fine

Ok, thats surprising, thought you'd be a guy who had only "the best of the best of the best, sir !" ;)  So a psu with 4 cables ( you're sli-ing right ? )

Anyway, a lot of others advice against using even one so i dunno anymore then :??:  Depends maybe on the quality of the psu ? ( Dell psu is ok, i know )

Yeah, well, HX620 . . . But i assume with a low brand psu with only one pci-e connector it's less safe ?

You changed sides by the way ???????? :ouch:  Thought you had NVidia sli ? ( orange bridge is AMD is it, or do i say something stupid again ? )

The second PCIe connector only has to supply 20w and the colour of the bridge has nothing to do with the type of bridge.

You're going to make noobs heads explode posting stuff like this Mouse
"OMG, SLI 560 and an I7 on 620 watts, your passing the 50% load mark"
"OMG, a 6 year old psu, wth capacitor ageing it must only output 460 watts"
