PCI-e connections


MU51CL

Recommended Posts

I read in a review that HX PSUs are now being shipped with 6+2 PCI-e connectors. Is this so? The manual I downloaded says 2 x 6 pin.

 

I want a 6+2 for upcoming 3870 purchase.

This would be Australian market. Can someone confirm for me please? In all other respects the HX look an excellent PSU. This would tick the box and make me push the Buy button :)

Thanks for the prompt response Ramguy.

As I regard a quality PSU as something of an investment, I wanted to be sure.

 

While a 3870 runs off 6 pin, the new 3870X2 needs both 6 and 6+2 connectors, and I can see this becoming a trend under PCI-e 2.0 bandwidth.

 

BTW, the fact that Corsair has this forum for real customer service will mean my next RAM purchase is Corsair. Not so much of that about in this business.

No problems, Ramguy.

 

My little shout from my soapbox says this:

"in a market crowded with suppliers and options, choices to be made, the suppliers who put value for the consumer in their profit line are the ones to support".

 

It beats Spend And Hope anytime.

Well I can report than my HX620 is up and running quiet as the proverbial church mouse.

 

Nil dramas just turn on and go.

Cables all as they should be and spacing between connections worked a treat. Nice and positive and it's all good.

 

That T-shirt would have been nice but no-show LOL
