2 x 12V Molex to 8pin CPU Power Adapter.

Hi,

 

I have CX400, VX450, TX650.

 

Can i use a converter from "2 x 4pin Molex to 8pin CPU Power", this is in order to use the 8pin as CPU power from the adapter, and also from Corsair PSU of 4+4pin make use of ONLY the 4pin for CPU power.

 

So in this way the 12V 8pin and 12V 4pin can be used at the same time on my motherboard that has 8pin & 4pin for CPU power.

 

Most of the CORSAIR PSU doesn't have 8pin & 4pin power for CPU on a separate cable.

 

 

 

My motherboard has 8pin & 4pin for CPU power.

""Thunder n3600B S2927-E (S2927A2NRF-E)""

 

 

 

Best Regards,

a) For which manual are you referring to? can send the url.

 

b) I guess you haven't understood to what I mean,

 

c) TYAN motherboard #S2927-E require two separate cables for 12V 8pin and 12V 4pin, to connect separately at the same time.

 

d) so my question is; will the 4-pin Molex adapter which converts "2 standard 4-pin Molex connectors into one 8-pin CPU connector".

 

So whats the max output in Watts for each of the 4-pin Molex adapter...?

 

 

 

Below URL are for picture reference for "Wire Configuration" have a look at the 430W wire configuration. The 12V 4pin & 12V 8pin are on separate cable; i have seen this at the Dealer shop.

the PSU comes with an eps 8 pin connector, no need for any adapters. (unless you have the 380w)

it comes with an eps12v 8 pinner for next to the ram slots and the 4 pin peripheral (standard molex) by the PCI slots is a whole different type of connector.

 

what is there to adapt? i dont get it??

am i missing a connector? these are the only 2 that i see other than the 24 pin...

Sorry I mentioned the wrong MB i.e. S2927-E.

 

 

The question is about this MB S2915-E & the PSU.

 

I have CX400, VX450 & TX650, these PSU doesn't have two separate cables for 12V 8pin and 12V 4pin

 

TYAN motherboard #S2915-E require two separate cables for 12V 8pin and 12V 4pin, to connect separately at the same time.

 

So my question is; will the 4-pin Molex adapter which converts "2 standard 4-pin Molex connectors into one 8-pin CPU connector". is it advised to do so?

8-pin CPU power & 4-pin CPU power connectors are marked in color on attached picture of TYAN 2915-E motherboard.

 

Now how do you use CORSAIR CX400, VX450, TX650 on this MB, as the PSU 4+4 pin are on one cable, not on a separate cable.

Never mind, the point is moot. From the motherboard manual (link's on the page you linked to):

 

Please be aware that ATX 2.x and ATXGES power supplies are not compatible with the board and can damage the motherboard and/or CPU(s).
