Hi,

 

I have a problem understanding the following:

 

I have a RM650x. Spec sheet says it has 4x PCIE:

If i actually look at the PSU, I can only see 3x PCIEx8:

How would I go about connecting 2x GPU's? Can I just use two 8-pin to 2x 8-pin Y cables??

 

Update:

The RM650x came with 1 of those Y-cables so how can I get a 2nd one? I am confused. Here you can see an unboxing where actually 2 cables sh ould be in the box: [ame]

PS: for power draw: they will run at 50% power limit, that means I should be able to run these on this 650W, am I right? With 1x 3070 the system is pulling ~240W.

ein kabelstrang pcie hat 2x 6+2pin ("Ykabel") für die grafikkarte und 1x8pin für pcie am netzteil. 2 von diesen kabelsträngen sind dabei, somit 4x 6+2pcie für die grafikkarte und 2x8pin pcie am netzteil^^ Edited by bloody74

I am not German but I think I understand.

Are you saying this PSU comes with 2x Y-cables? I only had 1 in the box though... is that normal?

You're going to be mining with this, aren't you?

 

Correct. 650 really is enough, full system with 1x underclocked 3070 draws half of what this thing can deliver so no need for another PSU.

 

I have a response from Corsair support, thanks all for your input.
