Hi all,

I have a new problem with my GTX 1080 graphics, for it to power up I have to fiddle with the 8 pin connector, for windiws to detect I have fiddle with until the white light shows, this only happens if the 8 pin is only half way on or just slight inside the connector. Any idea how I can fix this? Thanks

you mean the cable isn't long enough to completely reach the power connector?

or you mean it will only power on while barely inserted?

try a different cable.


i would be very wary of using it this way.
causing a short or other damage to the GPU, the PSU, or anything else connected to the PSU is always a possibility.

if it is the connector on the GPU causing the issue;
return it if still in warranty.
if not, sell it "as is" while the market's still in your favor.

I have tried several cables, there not too short, it's if I push the cable 8 pin connector all the way in to the gpu 8 pin socket, it won't power up, if I push it in until the white shows and keep it there it works. It's a second hard gpu.
