  1. Have you counted the pins on your card? It uses 3x 8pin connectors not a 12 pin.
  2. The two 8 pins plug into the PSU and the 12 pin plugs into the GPU.
  3. It does, yes. You can only use the video outputs on the primary card. Not sure on Crossfire, but both are pretty much dead anyway so beside the point.
  4. People are moving away from SLI, but not multiple GPUs. Many programs and general usage support multi-GPU setups, it's just games that are more or less dropped from support in SLI/Crossfire configs.
  5. If you want to run all of them at the same time, you'll need another GPU. MST won't work as Nvidia has software locked their GTX/RTX GPUs to 4 displays max, regardless of configuration. An option is to upgrade to one of AMD's offerings as they do not software lock them. I'm running 5 monitors off a single RX 5700XT myself with an MST hub, no issues. You can convert between DP and HDMI and vice versa easily with inexpensive adaptors, or DP to HDMI cables so that's not really an issue.
  6. It's worth it in the sense that you're almost certainly going to get games that total more than $6.99. Whether you actually get anything you want, that's completely up to chance, no way for us to tell you.
  7. There was a period where a load of companies released adaptors in order to do this, but I believe most of them have stopped because it really wasn't worth it. Yes, you can, but you'd need an adaptor as well as a supported cooler and GPU. Out of the box, no, you can't.
  8. Really depends what you're doing. I use more than 3 monitors every day for work and my productivity drops significantly if I have to use just one or two monitors. Even for everyday use, having multiple monitors is helpful.
  9. https://noctua.at/en/my-chromax-fan-came-with-4-pads-per-colour-shouldnt-there-be-8
  10. Take a look at task manager, I'd expect to see Windows Module Installer and/or Net runtime optimisation taking up a large amount of CPU and disk usage. If you have anti-virus installed, you might see that also having high CPU usage as it scans stuff.
  11. I'd suggest rolling back to the previous version. I've not encountered this issue on any of my systems, but 20H2 hasn't been out that long, so there's bound to still be bugs. https://www.howtogeek.com/235474/how-to-roll-back-builds-and-uninstall-updates-on-windows-10/ EDIT: Also, is this a very recent upgrade (as in, within the last few hours?). If so, give it some time as the WMI and Net runtime optimisation processes can stay active for quite a while after updates/upgrades and can slow down the start menu and other windows functions considerably.
  12. Running another monitor won't impact FPS in any noticeable way. What you do on it while gaming might, but that holds true even if you were running the same thing in the background.
  13. Good luck, PS5s have the same problem. It's a mixture of stock issues and higher demand. It's bad to the point that pretty much all mid to high end GPUs are sold out or overpriced by scalpers. I think quite a few people sold their high end cards to prepare for the new generation only to find they can't get them, so then went back and bought the last gen again. There's nothing to do but wait. And really, there's no solid news on when they're be reliably in stock.
