Okay so I bought a 4 pin to 8 pin adapter thing for my rx 570. It doesnt fit. And when i try to remove it from the adapter, it won't budge. Help, I suck. And how do I power my card?

8 pin EPS is for the CPU, it is not the same thing as 8 pin PCIe.

 

Plug that into your graphics card and you will fry it.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Well, you either have 6 or 6+2 pin PCIe cables coming out of your power supply, or you don't.

If you don't that means you need to buy a new power supply before you burn down your house trying to power a graphics card ith an underpowered chinese PSU.
