Hey all; Im not able to upgrade my PSU (Dont ask) I was wondering what is the most powerful GPU that has a 6 or 8 pin power connector?

The only difference is the two extra grounds. However, the 8-pin is designed to supply up to W of power, the 6-pin only 75W. Although you might think that, as.

There are lots of GPUs that have 6pin power plugs, both AMD & Nvidia, so, the question is, how much performance do you want, and what CPU.

A graphics card with one 6-pin power connector can have maximum power consumption of Watt as it will get 75W from the PCI Express x

Both 6-pin and 6+2-pin PCIE power connectors have the same number of power and ground wires so there's no issue with using an adapter.

6 pin gpu

You can see that in the post itself. My PSU had an 8 pin on the end of the cord and another 8 pin further down. You may open the side cover of the case and can look at the power supply wattage written on the PSU. Is it to power the fans or light?{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} If is better to have adequate power available rather than lack of it, because lack of power can damage the component. Does this mean you would be able to just use the 8 pin connector and leave the 6 pin unconnected? Hey, once again, I can only write on a reply. Some GTX cards require single 8-pin connector and some require dual 8-pin connectors. I have gtx and it has 8pin socket. I noticed my gpu fan never turns on even as temp rises. If you have any more doubts then feel free to ask. Well some add-on board partners do like to provide more power to their cards especially overclocked ones with custom PCBs to be on the safer side, and for cases where the user plans on overclocking the card to much higher frequencies. A dual 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCIe connector can provide more than 75W power. Play a game for few minutes and then check whether the fans start or not because the card comes with 0dB semi-passive cooling technology. If you are short on Molex connectors then you can use this converter cable or adapter. Since I am not overclocking eny thing becourse there is no reson for it. Below you can see the PCI-Express x16 connector of the graphics card. Most of the mid-range graphics cards from both Nvidia and AMD come with the 6-pin power connector. A PCI Express x16 slot can provide a maximum of 75 Watts to the graphics card which is enough for entry-level, low profile and budget graphics cards. The only thing that you have to keep in mind is that the card has similar or lesser power consumption compared to your older card. I wonder if I need to put a 6 pin into it. A graphics card is a major component of a PC and it generally consumes more power compared to other components. The power cannot be forced but it is rather drawn by the component. This power adapter cable uses two SATA connectors for one 8-pin power connector. Budget level or some entry-level mid-range graphics cards draw their power from the PCI Express x16 slot only but the higher-mid range and high-end graphics cards require external power from the PSU for their working. Thank you for helping me! So now I have a 8pin connected to the gpu, on the other hand I only have one 6 pin. I want to upgrade to a card. This prevents any possible chance of burnout if your graphics card happens to draw more power because of overclocking or higher load. My problem is when I play a game my pc resets itself, only playing games. Ty for the help. I have two 6 pin available. So I have two 6pins in order for the 8pin, and the gpu to work. Fortunately tho, the card came with a two 6pin to one 8 pin converter. My question is about the converter, will the converted 6 pin deliver 75w, or more. Sorry for my late response. No, never mix different connectors together or you will end up damaging your card. No, it is not compulsory or necessary to get a card with same type of connectors. The 8-pin power connector can deliver a maximum of W to your graphics card. Another great article. More importantly, I got a dual 6 pin to 8 pin connector. A graphics card with one 8-pin power connector can get a maximum of W of power, 75W from PCI Express x16 slot and W from the 8-pin connector from the power supply. As I scour the internet and find a nice clear article, it is yours! The latest High-end graphics cards come with the 8-pin power connector and some of the power-hungry top-end graphics cards can have both 6-pin and 8-pin connectors or two 8-pin connectors. Sorry, i have powercolor red dragon rx and corsair CV w. You can safely use a single 8-pin to 6-pin adapter too, and it is not dangerous because the power draw of this card is not much under W and also if you do not plan to overclock it. What PSU are you having and does it have only one 6-pin pcie connector? I will order the SATA to 8-pin. I have done M. Will i get the wattage of x16 75watts even though it operating at x8?? Based on your reply, I will just use the 8-pin to single 6-pin adapter to connect the GPU to the PSU if that is your recommendation, it is arriving from Amazon today. It really depends on the manufacturer as some GTX uses 6-pin and some 8-pin connector e. Does the card I get need to have a 6pin and one 8pin connector also? The external power for these powerful graphics cards comes from the 6-pin and 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors from the power supply. Zotac GTX cards use only 6-pin connector. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Thank you for supporting the work I put into this site! A graphics card with one 6-pin power connector can have maximum power consumption of Watt as it will get 75W from the PCI Express x16 slot and 75W from the 6-pin connector. If you have any queries or doubts regarding graphics cards or their power consumption then feel free to ask me by leaving a comment below. So now the gpu will get 75w from the slot, 75w from one of the 6pins coming from the psu. Is there anything I can do to enable a connection? Why do you think it takes an 8 pin connector? How do i know what goes where? My zoostorm gaming PC has only one 6 pin connector but the GTX graphics card I have just purchased has a 6 pin and an 8 pin connector. This card can safely run with 6-pin PCI-e connector too but as it has only an 8-pin PCIe connector, you will have to use an adapter for it. If a have a 2 4pin molex to 6pin pcie converter, will the 6 pin pcie end give the same 75w power, even though its coming from two different voltage 4 pins? I will have to use a 8-pin to 6-pin adapter to make this work with my PSU, and why is that not dangerous? Why does it have an 8-pin when it is only rated at W?? My problem is my gpu fan wont turn on. Akshat, you are awesome! So if your graphics card power consumption is more than W then it will definitely come with an 8-pin connector or two 6-pin connectors. Thank you! Some converters require two 4-pin Molex converter and some require one. Hi there. The GPU has a spot for an 8 pin and a 6 pin. So if your graphics card power consumption is more than 75W then it will have one 6-pin PCI-E power connector for its working. How could i power my GPU? Im looking forward to running Sli. Both these are very good cards and require a single 8-pin connector only. Tech in IT and B. This graphics card takes W, so by your metrics, using a 6 pin and the PCI-e slot should be enough to power this card. The cable you are using i. Now my psu only has one 6 pin pcie. A 6-pin power connector can supply 75 Watt to the graphics card. You can check out the whole range from the link given below. I think you have made the right connection by putting 8-pin in the 8-pin port and 6-pin in the 6-pin one. Many thanks. My motherboad has 2 x16 3. I just whould like to know if I need to. And plugged in 6 of of 8 pins on the connector further down the cord into 6 pin spot on the GPU. This card has a maximum power consumption of Watt. Even some mid-range graphics cards can also work on the power from the PCI Express x16 slot alone but higher mid-range graphics cards and high-end graphics card requires external power from the PSU through 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors. Due to my CPU lanes, my motherboard will operate at x16,x8. What are your thoughts? The graphics card takes an 8 pin connector. The voltage will be 12V only. I bought a Asus gtx strix i used to have a Asus gtx strix I only got 1 PCI-E supply with 8 Pins they fit perfect into the but there is still missing a 6 pin. If your power supply does not have 6-pin or 8-pin connectors then you may try these 6-pin and 8-pin converters or power adapter cables to power your graphics card. I built the pc yesterday. PCI Express x16 connector connects your graphics to the motherboard and is the only interface through which communication happens.
