Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, I did some research and Its ok, Its a 500W Seasonic Brozne+. My question is, is it ok to use 6pin to 8 adapter? This PSU has 1x6+2pin and 1x6pin. 

GPU model Zotac AMP extreme

Not much or at all really.


QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

That one will not do. It's ancient and should not be used with your system.

The one thing you really shouldn't skimp out on is your PSU. Just because it is lightly used doesn't mean anything, PSU technology has advanced a lot since then.

Still just general decay over the 10 years it's been out. I would not trust it. Especially since it was a more budget back then.
