    PSU has NO 4-Pin or 6-Pin adapters!

    Hi guys. You can pretty much guess what my problem is from the title. Basically I just bought a GFX card that needs power from a 6-pin supply (but comes with an adapter to support 4-pin so either will do), but I just opened up my new PC and it doesn't have any.

    It does, however, have tons of these:

    Only, as a noob, I don't know what they're called, or if adapters exist that can turn them into a 4-pin or 6-pin output.

    Any help?

      • Corsair or Seasonic are good

      • Monitor(s):
      • Big widescreen will do

    From your fuzzy picture it looks like a sata power connector.

    Your best bet would be to buy a new psu with all the cables on and depending on your pc the Corsair 520 will be the best bet.

    adapters exist to turn them into 4-pin "molex" connectors
