HX1000W, EVGA classified and dual GTX 285 help

Recommended Posts

I have a corsair hx1000 power supply and I have a evga x58 classified, and two GTX 285's going into my new system. The motherboard requires two 8-pin plugs is there a necessary spot for the second plug to be plugged into the power supply as in does it have to be on the same 12 volt rail as the first 8-pin?

 

Second with those two GTX 285's it will require four pci express 6-pin connectors, would using three modular pci express connectors and one hard wired be ok, or use two modular and use two hard wired connectors?

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Why not just use 4 modular ones? Either way it doesn't matter, any configuration should work.

Apologies for double post, but i think i have everything sorted out. Going through and reading the manual again helps. Basic cable setup that im going to apply is as follows.

 

2x Hard Wired PCI-E connectors for first card

2x Modular PCI-E connectors for second card

second 8-pin EPS/12v plugged into blue socket labled 12V1
