Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm having trouble understanding how many gpu pins there are available on this PSU, I am going to be using it with a gtx 2070 that requires both a 8 pin and a 6 pin, is this psu compatible?

Yeah it'll be compatible. the 6+2 means the connectors will be 6 pins with a little 2 pin one that clips on the side to make it an 8 pin

Image result for 850GQ

14 pins total.

 

You just need an 8 pin and a 6 pin connector.

6+2 PCIe means it has a PCIe connector that can either be used as a 6 pin or an 8 pin (6+2=8).

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

It actually has that four times over. You could theoretically plug four RTX 2070s into your PSU.

 

That's not a good idea though, but a single 2070 will work very well.
