I need to know what cable I need to connect to my 6 pin male pcie card (old GTS450) and what socket I plug it into on the psu (RM650i)

 

Cheers

 

The PSU comes with an 8-pin to 6+2-pin PCIe cable. Plug in the 8-pin into the PSU and plug the 6-pin of the 6+2-pin into the graphics card.

So I purchased a pcie 8 to 6+2 (was labelled as corsair when I purchased it doesn't have corsair written on it tho but looks quality with meshing) but looking at the 8 pin end it has the top right pins across the top melded together unlike my other 8 pin feeding my mobo plus the bottom rh pin is omitted. So it maybe the correct cable but has the two top rh plastic pins melded together so it won't fit into the psu. I have x2 of the cables and both are the same. Do I merely separate these two pins with a stanley knife or do I have the wrong cable?

No the pcie end is 6+2, the images are the psu end fixed 8 (they even have psu written on them and pci-e written on the other end)

I've seen these (prefer the 2nd one) on Amazon which looks ok ... but not made by corsair ... will any of them do?

holy sh**.. the first one looks like the right kind of cable but the original corsair flat ribbon cable costs like 3£...

Out of stock tho, as usual.

 

for that kind of money you could almost get a Corsair sleeved PCIE cable.

 

As for the second it's a sleeved extension. it doesn't plug to the PSU but to the end of the PCIE cable, to keep it hidden in the case, and look good.

The seller lied to you.

 

That's an EVGA DC cable. Not a Corsair cable.
