2x PCI-E 6-pin + 2x Ground connectors (plugged into unused 2 pins on 8-pin female plug on card): Overclocking unlocked in CCC

My buddy tried booting his HD2900XT 1GB with only one PCI-E 6-pin and no dice.
Oh oh! Good info. I had heard the infos i posted above early in the release of the HD2900XT. So either 2 PCI-Express for non overclocking or 1 8-pin + 1 PCI-Express 6-pin for unlocked overclocking eh?
