Is my AX860i good for newer motherboard?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,
is my AX860i good for newer motherboards that needs two 8 pins cables?

As far as I remember my AX860i has only one 8pin cable for the CPU, am I wrong?
Can I use the GPU cables for the motherboard as well?

CPUs that need two power cables are extremely rare, maybe a 10900k under liquid nitrogen, or a threadripper 3995WX.

otherwise only one cable is more than enough.

it does 🙂

unless you have extreme needs, one single cable will be enough for all CPU/motherboards. It can deliver over 300W.

You didn't say what CPU you were planning to buy, but all the mainstream ones even higher end only require one cable. It's not about the motherboard, but the CPU really. If the motherboard has two plugs you can only use one. So your PSU will work fine.
