  • MSI 1070Ti - Power connections

    Hi all,

    My partners father has just bought a MSI Armor 1070Ti Graphics Card but when I went inside his PC to ensure he had all the correct cabling, I found the following:

    - A non modular PSU and only 4 pin molex's for power...

    As the 1070 will require a 8 and 6 pin PCi-E cable, we are in a bit of a pickle!

    Is the only solution to get hold of molex adaptors? Or is there an easier solution I am missing out here?


    I have found a 2 x 4pin molex to 8 pin PCI-E and a 1 x 4pin molex to 6 pin PCI-E - I believe this is the only solution? But welcome your expertise!



    Many Thanks

    If psu doesn't have right cables, chances are it wouldn't cope even with cable adaptors attached. Fact you say it only has 4 pin molex don't sound too promising. So it has no 8 or 6 pin pci-e power connectors at all?

      Thanks for the swift response,

      Nope it looks like an old style non modular PSU and definitely has no PCI-e power connectors.

      All that's in there is the molex and Sata etc

        Yeah probably maximum of 300-400w probably blow up if you got right adaptors for the cables for it.

        Sounds like going need new psu for it.

          Yeah just checked and it's a 500W but a really basic old school metal one with minimal cables.

          I'l aadvise on updating the PSU


          Thanks for the help

            PCIe 16x Power draw, roughly speaking:-

            75W from the actual PCIe slot.
            75W from a 6 pin cable
            150W from an 8 pin cable.

            300W on a cheap/unbranded PSU = quick death that may well take much of the system with it!
            I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

              Yep, I'd recommend a minimum of 600W branded power supply - I wouldn't touch an unbranded PSU regardless of claimed wattage

              This is what I'd get : https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=59660
              Obviously that's out of stock so you may need to look around at other units in the 600-750W range - and check the cables as even some 700W units don't supply 2xPCIe power cables.

                Believe one I linked has 4 pci-e connectors?

                Four PCI express connectors for multi-GPU system configurations.
