I just plugged those two 6-pin power connectors into the card, meaning that it now has a 8-pin power slot that only has a 6-pin power connector plugged into it. There are even some outlandish situations where the GPU will have two 8-pin connectors. A jumper is better. If the GPU requires more than 150 watts then it will, by design, come with an 8-pin connector or two 6-pin connectors. With this math it sounds like I shouldn't get any issues, in practice it could be different though.. Use one of these, you will be fine. Luckily, the computers are made by engineers who like to modify stuff that’s not fitted to their needs by default. Nvidia was forthcoming in regards to the availability of PSUs with 12-pin connectors, so it released an adapted which allows two 6-pin connectors to interface with its card’s 12-pin slot.

(a bit urgent) See More: can i connect a 6 pin pci-e into a 4 pin? However, compared to the rest of the market, the perf/Watt score is still excellent. APU vs CPU vs GPU – What Is The Difference? There are often compatibility issues when building a PC and power connectors are no different. Motherboards come with the aforementioned PCI Express x16 slot that can provide a maximum of 75 watts of power., 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) Kingston HyperX FURY 1333 MHz DDR3, 256 GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO, 40 GB Intel 320 Series SSD, WD 160 GB 7200 RPM HDD, Intel Core i7-6700K (4 x 4.00 GHz) w/ HT and Turbo on, Crucial MX300 275 GB, Seagate Exos X12 TB 7200 RPM, Nixeus NX-EDG274K (3840x2160@144 DP) + Samsung SyncMaster 906BW (1440x900@60 HDMI-DVI), Coolermaster HAF 932 w/ USB 3.0 5.25" bay. It can be particularly confusing when utilizing a multi-GPU setup, like with the SLI. If you recently purchased a top-class GPU, it’ll likely require an 8-pin connector which some PSUs might not have. Hmm. What this one does is convert your SATA connectors to a 6-pin one, but this is generally advised against. but that’s just me. Each has 12v on "opposite" pins, and are keyed differently, so confusing the two should be pretty easy...8-pin PCIe plug inserted into 8-pin CPU receptacle should be very hard to do, and vice versa. For example, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has both types of connectors and, as a result, has a maximum power consumption of 250 watts. Even though the last two pins are only grounds, the power supply isn't set up to provide that much power to it (I believe it is about 100w difference between 6 and 8). As an example, I have a GTX750Ti in a PC that I use for HTPC purposes. If you recently purchased a top-class GPU, it’ll likely require an 8-pin connector which some PSUs might not have. A top of the line graphics card can significantly overbear the PSU, and that is something gamers do not want. Seeing how 150 watts will be enough for most mid-range cards, it is them that usually come with the 6-pin power connector. In most cases, it’ll be best to upgrade your PSU if you lack connectors, as it’s possible they weren’t built with your power consumption in mind. Despite 150 watts being enough for most graphics cards, cards like Nvidia’s RTX 2080 require upwards of 220 watts and system power of 650 watts. I'd definitely play it safe and upgrade the power supply. 4-pin to 8-pin is something that will likely be the most useful with upper mid-range and high-end graphics cards.

Out the box it gives me couple 1x8pin cables and 2 1×6+8 pin connector now my gpu the gtx 1080ti requires 8+8 pin … sure you can. The most power-hungry graphics cards will come with a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector. Donno how that is done on cheaper PSU's... Well, it worked fine for a few days, then suddenly it started rebooting by itself, with the BIOS saying that the system was shut down to protect itself from voltage spikes from the power supply. I kinda doubt the card "cares" how many pins are connected as long as it's getting enough power. the 1080 ti draws 250W. For recent GPUs, it really depends on the GPU.

In this case, it appears that it's getting enough power, at least under typical (gaming) loads. PSU was a 700W server PSU with only two 6pin PCI slots and the card had one 6 pin and a 8 pin so I ran two jumpers from two separate unused molex connectors and it works like a champ but I trust the PSU. Hopefully it works now. Or 8-pin to 6+2 pin? GPU Fans Not Spinning? Meanwhile, 6-pin GPU has 3x 12v, 2x ground, 1x sense/ground. This one uses two 4-pin connectors and adapts it into an 8-pin connector. and PSU can produce enough power for these parts.

6+2 pin that mean. The 6+8 cable is rated for 225W. Out the box it gives me couple 1x8pin cables and 2 1×6+8 pin connector now my gpu the gtx 1080ti requires 8+8 pin could i ise an adapter for the 6pin head ? So, to better understand how to power your GPU, we have prepared this resource for you. When companies do this now, it’s a big deal.

make sure if you will buy something like gtx 680 that your PSU have 2 (6 pin connector) and enough connector for CPU and motherbord .

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series Release Date, Price, Specs. 6-Pin to 8-Pin PCI-E Adapter Cable. I wouldn’t be very concerned about the extra 25W draw, if you buy good quality adapters. So don’t be surprised to hear these referred to as Molex Adapters or Molex Converters. In our power testing we saw a maximum power draw of 146W, so this is mostly for show.

A CPU 8-pin has 4x 12v, and 4x ground. Nope. In that case, the power requirement is the sum of two (or more) connected graphics cards. Report • #2. I'd assume that Asus has applied a factory OC which will increase the power consumption a bit, but still, 75 W from the PCI-E slot should mean that the graphics card only needs ~40W from the power connectors. Wanamingo January 14, 2011 at 07:01:54. Welcome to TechPowerUp Forums, Guest! In that case, the 6-pin to 8-pin adapter is the solution for you. With the release of Nvidia’s RTX 3000 series, we were introduced to the 12-pin power connectors.

However, the system appears to work properly, and that includes running demanding (for the card's standards) games. The 12-pin connector is roughly the size of the 8-pin connector, but logically, can draw a lot more power. I've used 2x 6pin for HD7950, for GTX 980 I'm using 1x8 pin (6+2) and 1x8 pin. They can be bought for as little as 99p UK, Given the off-brand PSU and the lack of adequate connectors, I'm with, I would check that card first- no 5770 that I know of has a 6pin and an 8pin power connector on it.

Never, ever, use a combination of adapters that can try to draw too much power through the weakest point in the chain. Maybe it could cause trouble under FurMark or something, so far there's been no issues though. I wouldn't run a 5380 off a 500w, specially from a weird brand.

If you're ever looking for a recommendation for a PSU, I highly recommend the Corsair HX1000 or HX1200, they both come with 4 cables that each have dual 6+2pin connectors. But, be careful because with great power comes a greater risk of overheating. By "1x8 pin" do you mean a regular 8-pin to 8-pin? ASUS has decided to put one six-pin and one eight-pin connector on their card. As mentioned earlier, the 12-pin power connector is the latest technology that is necessary for Nvidia’s 3000 series graphics cards. 8pin connectors are rated for 150w max draw.

Is it okay? So, I took a risk earlier on and it runs well.
