HX650 & New GPU - Cable Help Please

Hi

 

My current system is around 7 years old and the Corsair HX650 PSU (https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Power-Supply-Units/hx-series-config/p/CP-9020030-NA) is from the original build. I was hoping to give it a bit of an upgrade before I start my new build later this year.

 

My plan was to get a new GPU, one of the Nvidia 2060 or 70s and I am confused about the cables to use. The new GPU's require 8 pins, the PSU has 2 8 pin connectors but the cables that came with the PSU are 8 pin (PSU side) although 2 pins are not connected and at the GPU side they are 8 pin with 2 of the pins split off (see attached image)

 

Could I connect a new GPU using this cable or would I need a new 8 pin to 8 pin (6+2) cable?

 

Thanks in advance for any help

 

Best

 

Andy

I'm not sure where the confusion is.

 

The PCIe and EPS12V ports on the PSU are 8-pin (though not all may be populated). The connectors for the graphics card are 6+2-pin (put them together to make 8).

 

If you're worried about using both PCIe connectors on a single cable, just use two cables and only one connector each.
