    4870x2 problems.

    Just got one of these bad boys from ebuyer, due to an RMA.

    My motherboard is currently Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3, which uses the 4pin adapter to run the cpu.

    My psu is corsair hx620, which although modular, has by default, a 4 pin, a 8pin, and a 24pin coming out of it.

    Now the 4870x2 requires a 6pin pci-e adaptor (which i have) and an 8-pin.
    i do also have a 6+2pin adapter,
    but my question was can i use the 8pin that is meant for the cpu to power the gfx?


    Thanks in advance

    No, and it doesn't fit.
    Your PSU should have an 8 pin (6+2) and a 6 pin connector. Isn't that all that's needed?

    Sorry, assumed you had a newer HX620. Get plugging in the card then (with the proper connectors )
