Hi, hopefully a quick one, I just want to make sure i’m Not going to blow any components. The lightning z has x3 6+2 pin PCIe inputs. My current modular setup on my psu has the mobo power setup the 4+4 cpu connector in the set place and the pcie cable connected next to it. The pcie cable only has x2 6+2 pin PCIe connectors to connect to the gpu I have another x2 6+2 pin cable from a different psu. I’m just not sure if it’s safe to connect. It fits in an unlabelled 8 pin socket so I think it should be fine. I just want to be doubly sure. Any help would be really appreciated! Thanks!
Hello, I putting together a new system and have a Corsair RM550x power supply and a ASRock Extreme4 x390 motherboard. For the CPU it has an 8pin and a 4 pin connector but on the powersupply I have one have 8 pin connector. I also have 6 pin connector that can split to offer 4 pin as well but that will be used for the graphics card, GTX 1080. I've read that using the additional 4 pin is not required and indeed the system does POST to BIOS with just the 8 PIN how ever the manual states the additional 4 pin is required. Looking around seems most X390 boards have the 8+4pin except for the cheaper boards with less phases. So is the RM550x just not compatible with most Z390 board or is there another cable I can get that will allow this to work? I've seen there is peripheral power (molex) to 4 pin adapters but not sure about those and if that is the case is there a cable I can get that will fit into the back of the power supply peripheral section that goes straight to 4 pin? Thanks,
