I believe it's hive. I noticed that the gpu has a slot for both a 6 and 8 pin do I need to have both plugged in? I know this sounds pretty nooby lol. I'm still new to this thanks in advance
You need to have both PCI-e power connectors plugged in for the GPU to function correctly. You might be able to use a 6 pin PCI-e in the 8 pin slot, but I haven't looked into that option yet, so don't quote me on that.
* 75w PCI-e slot on the mobo for GPU
* 2 x 6 pin PCI-e connectors from the PSU supplies an additional 150w (if needed) to the GPU)
Total required power for the GPU is 225w max, but usually it's less. You still need both PCI-e power connectors to power up the GPU correctly.
