I just installed a 550 ti and am getting black screen of death during gaming. Other research has pointed to either overheating or not enough power.
I have a 700watt PSU with dual +12v rails. Specification says 21A on them. However the card demands 24A
I don't fully understand the whole Amperage thing here. Does 2x21A give me around 40A or is it just putting out (in theory) 21A?
I'm using a converter for the card's 6 pin that requires 2 Molex. I'm not certain if its possible to use a molex from both or 1 rail? The cables from the molex seem to originate from same place and it appears that there's another bunch of cables coming from another position off the psu. Would I be better using power from 2 separate cable bunches? Or is it not going to make a difference as my amperage is already too low?
