krishcanag Posted December 25, 2013 Share Posted December 25, 2013 Hello everyone and merry X'mas. I got a new AX760i PSU after my HX650 blew so connected it as follows to my Gigabyte EP45 mobo. 10 + 14 pin connectors to 24pin ATX on PSU and other end to 24pin on mobo. Now (the issue) there is 2 cables with a CPU printed label on it, I connected the CPU label side to mobo 8 pin connector and the other end with a printed label TXM/HX/AXi to PSU just below the 24pin ATX connector, connector 3 (right hand side). It has a confusing printed label above it saying 6+2 PCI-E & 4+4 CPU. Now when I on'ed it smoke came from the mobo I think. removed everything and checked PSU with self test, all ok, so can someone confirm I have connected it correctly? Also all other PSU connections I have from HHD, drives all seem to be PCI-E only, nothing with 6+2 PCI-E. thanks krish Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
