Question about pci-e modular cables


Chocobar

Recommended Posts

I have an HX 520 and a GTX 260. Should I plug both pci-e modular cables in the video card and power supply? I've seen people talk about plugging one in the motherboard, was wondering what that was.

 

Thanks.

PCI-E cables should only be used with your video cards, the motherboard connector will either be an 8 or 4-pin depending on the type of motherboard and there is an 8/4 pin connector on our PSU which can be used with either type of motherboard.

So basically to power up my GTX 260 correctly, all I have to do is plug the two modular cables in my video card and power supply? Nothing else?

 

Thanks.

 

Correct. Plug it into the correct slot on the MOBO and attach the 2 cables. This should be in the manual that accompanies your GTX260.

Ah sorry my GTX 260 was an RMA. My 8800 GTS 512's fan died so they sent me this new card with no booklet.
