AX850W - how do I connect 2 pci-e and eatx 12v?


Recommended Posts

I am building a new system with an AX850, Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard, and 2 Gigabyte SuperOverClock GV-N460SO-1GI GTX460's.


The connector for the 8-pin eatx12v on the motherboard has 12 pins where it connects to the AX850, 4 of those pins are blank.


The pci-e cables have the same 12 pin connection at the AX850 end. Each of my graphics cards has sockets for two 6 pin power connectors.


The AX850 has only 2 places to plug in 12 pin connections.


Is there a way to connect both pci-e cables and the eatx12v?


Is there a diagram of the output connections of the AX850 so I can confirm I am connecting the cables correctly?


Thanks for helping.


BTW the thread mentioning the cover Asus puts over 4 of the 8 pins of the eatx12v connection was very helpful... thanks.

Thanks Toasted but it seems that Corsair ran out of the correct socket ends for the 12v connector and just used one of the 12pin PCI-E ones instead.


Had to return the PSU for an OCZ ZX850 as MicroCentre didn't have any replacements for the Corsair in stock.


Much appreciated all the same mate!
