Installing R7950 3GB PLEASE READ
 
Hello everyone,

Recently my RMA Replacement MSI R9750 3GB OC Graphics card came in the mail. Before i hook it up ( to avoid any problems ) i want to make sure I'm doing this correctly.

I have a tx 650 m power supply from corsair. I know this can power it because it all went fine until one day (long story). Took hook it up should i use these two black cables included with the PSU? On one end there are eight pins and the head of the cable is blue. On the other end there are six pins. One of them however has eight pins on the black too but with two of them detachable. Should i just hook the black ends to the card and then the blue to the power supply (both cables directly)? I just want to make sure i don't do anything bad. Thanks guys!

the tip with only one connector is in the power supply, on the other tip you have 6pin plus 6+2 pin right?

if your card needs a 6 and a 8 pin,plug the 6 pin and the 6+2 as a eight pin,but the single plug ,8 pins is for the PSU!,the several connectors are for the card :)

use those tips for the card

a card needs only one cable,plugged into the PSU as PCIe1 ,generally

blue,for PSU,black,for card! in your case

you will see it's easy :)

One cable only? Im reading on the manual here

System requirements:

600 watt or greater power supply with one 75W 6-pin AND one 75W 8-pin pci express power connectors recommended.

yes,one cable separated in 2 connectors, one that is 6 pin and one that is 6+2 ,i mean its a cable like this :D


GPU
Y
PSU


so it's one cable overall,plugged in a PSU,but separated in 2 connectors , 6 + (6+2) for the card!


if you want,my picture is what you need for video card connexion,but those 2 cables are like "Y" this shape

and one thing in the PSU :)

Im so sorry i feel really stupid right now, can you post a picture? Are you saying i need to only use one cable and use a splitter and splits into two ends and those two ends plug into the GPU?

you need to figure out what are your pci-e cables and for from there and the manual will help greatly with this.

But generally pci-e connectors will be a combination of 6 pins and a 6 pin with an extra 2 coming from the ground on the cable. I for radeon cards its advisable to use the 6 and 8 connectors to work properly.

Okay here are the pictures (old ones):

Plug that into the eight pin socket and get the same identical cable except it has 6 pins and plug in that into the 6 pin area? This means two cables and no split.

into the PSU:
