    I believe he was confusing the 8pin connection on the PSU end of the modular PCI-E cable with an 8pin cpu power connector, thinking it was reversible to work as one.

    A photo of what you are trying to do might help mate, even I am confused and that don't take a lot to do.

    hmm, think I figured it out. I was wrong about the CPU power - thats not modular. The 4+4 CPU & PCI-e connector is a single connector - I can use the PCI-e cable with the 8 pin (2 blank) PSU connection.


    I think. it hasnt blown up yet so all good.

    Corsair CX430M with HD7770...help

    Hi lovely folks. I'm trying to get up and running with my XFX HD7770 card with my Corsair CX430M PSU.... here goes


    The card has a standard 6 pin PCI-E power connection. sorted.


    The PSU has a 6 pin PCI-E cable. Sorted. Only, on the other end of it, it has an 8 pin "type 3" connection that has two empty pins at one end??


    The PSU has two empty connections -


    6 pin PCI-e and 8 pin '4+4 CPU' (the 4+4 CPU cable actually had a 6 pin connector at the other end for the PSU)


    So, if that makes any sense... can I use the 6 pin PCI-E cable with the 8 pin (2 blanks) on the other end in the 4+4 CPU slot on the PSU???
Working...
