620 Question (Important)

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I'm not a PSU guru, so I want to be sure: are the two 6-pin PCI-e connectors on the Corsair 620 on the same rail?

 

I'll be installing an 8800GTX tomorrow (coming with the CorsairHX PSU) which requires two PCI-e connectors.

 

However, both connections should be on the same rail for this GPU.

 

So do I use just one of 6-pin connections of the PSU and split it with an adapter for the two connectors on the 8800GTX?

 

Or do I have to use both of the 6-pin off the PSU? - Which I wouldn't think, because if you were running SLI, you'd need both and would have to split them anyway.

 

Any detailed info on this would be greatly appreciated, as I do not want to take the chance of either under-powering the GPU, or worse, frying it using both of the 6-pin connections off the PSU.

 

Thanks much.

 

P.S.

Is it true that this PSU's fans do not spin when not under load?

Or if that happens, is that a problem and it should be RMA'd?

Don't worry we have tested this card and our PSU has plenty of power, the 12 Volt rails are able to share the power between all of the rails for a max of 34 Amps per connector
