Nordstrom Posted January 18, 2016 Share Posted January 18, 2016 Upgrading my 560 Ti to a MSI 970 gaming an upon reading some reviews I noticed that the card requires one 6 pin and one 8 pin plug as opposed to the two 6 pin plugs on my current 560 Ti. The MSI 970 does indeed come with a 6 pin to 8 pin adapter. As my HX520W (which I really like for it's quiet fan and no coil whine) is one of the first revisions with only two 6 pin connectors I was wondering if overall it would be wise to upgrade my HX520 not only because of my specs but also to get the correct and current cables/connectors. The HX520 should be a quality Seasonic build with Japanese quality components though but does it still have enough headroom? I might do som OC'ing on the CPU and GPU once I do the upgrade. i5 4690K Asus Z97-K MSI 970 GTX 500 GB SSD 3 TB WD 5 x 120 mm fans on fan controller If I were to upgrade to let's say a 650/750 Corsair PSU which one would match the noise profile on my current PSU? Been looking into the CS series but also the RMi with its no-activity fan. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
