AX760 Corsair PCIe connectors to GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello, so I'm new to all this and had a question regarding the cables that come with the Corsair AX760 PSU. So one end with 6 pins is connected to the PSU and the other end 6+2 pin and 6 pin is connected to the GPU (Gigabyte GTX G1 970). The connector to the right has an extra 2 pin that hangs from the side. Why is this cable made like that or how can i remove the extra 2 pin. I want to purchase the Corsair red individual sleeved cables and that extra 2 pin just makes it look ugly, is there a way to remove it?

 

No my picture but same cable.

You cant remove it, its intended for cards with an 8 pin connector


PC is Intel Core i5 6400, GIgabyte H170 Gaming 3, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB 2400Mhz ,Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB, WD Blue 1TB, NZXT S340, ASUS Geforce GTX 960. Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/793XNG. Graphics card choices don't always have to be dictated on performance. If you want the game stream and power consumption of the GTX 970 get that. If you want raw performance of the R9 390 get that. In the end we are all gamers, so what if your buddy gets an extra 5 fps?

You shouldn't remove it, because it's intended for more power hungry GPUs that need an 8-pin connector. Rather than make two cables, they just incorporated them into one.

Please don't try and remove it, you'll cause more harm then good.

No planing on removing anything. So what type of cable should I use to connect? Does anyone have the corsair cables here?

I have the same PSU. If your GPU accepts a 6 pin power connector, connect the 6 pin end to the PSU, the 6+2 end to the GPU and just leave the 2 extra pins dangling. Same for if it's an 8-pin GPU connector, except plug in the block of two as well.
