Xeon E5-2640V3 and CPU connectors on my mainboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey just one more question guys.My PSU has 2 8-pin connectors which I need to use for my GPU.What is left are 2x4pin connectors on rails of PSU.

On MB Asus Rampage V Extreme I see above CPU socket, 1x8-pin and 1x4 pin connector.

Do I need to plug cables to both connectors or I can use 2x4pin connectors from rails to those connectors on MB?

As I can see one is named EATX12V_1 and other EATX12V_2.

Do I need to plug cables to both connectors for this CPU?

Just plug in the 8 pin and you'll be fine. The extra 4 pin is used for high core count CPUs and extreme overclocking.

Thanks dude.t's not 8-pin it's 2 4-pin connectors (2 black,2 yellow wires on each).

Can I join them rogether as 8-pin connector?

Yes, together they make the 8 pin EPS connector. The 6+2 pin connectors for the graphics card are the PCIe connectors.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Yes, you should be able to join them together.

In fact, power supply is probably intentionally separating the 8 pin EPS connector into 2 x 4 pin, so that you'd be able to use the power supply with cheap or older motherboards that have only a 4 pin power connector for CPU.

 

Depending on power supply, the two 4 pin connectors may lock together, see if there's some kind of "channel" to the side of one of the 4 pin connectors. If so, the other connector may slide inside that channel and lock together forming the 8 pin connector.

Nope I can't join them together,hope I can plug them rogether,they are separated each other.

What PSU do you have?
