My GPU requires 2 6-pin connectors, which I'm assuming is supposed to be PCIE connectors.

My PSU came with 2 PCIE 6+2 *(8p) connectors.... can i use the 6 pins but just not use the plug those 2 extra pins for my GPU?

Also am i correct in interpreting the 2 6-pin connectors to be PCIE connectors... I read somewhere that I should even dare trying SATA connectors to power a gpu.

ty USAFRet - very helpful as always


manual doesn't say much except its a PCI-E 6+2P (8P) connector. Im holding the connector and the "2p" connectors are dangling off so, what u said lines up with its purpose
