Does a VS400 have a six pin connector?

 Share

So I plan to get a graphics card for my HP P7 1017c.

I been thinking of this for a while so I'd like to see if I am good to go or rethink this.

 

Thanks!

What PSU do you currently have in your HP?

What graphics card are you looking at getting?

Where are you from?

Can you please provide a store to where you are buying the PSU from?

The current PSU is currently a 250 watt PSU,

the graphics card I'm looking for is a GTX 1060 3 GB,

I'm from the US,

and I plan to order it online.

The VS is pretty bad, so try a Corsair CX or something. Do you have a really strict budget or were you looking to save a buck? 

Also, make sure to respond to people by quoting with the little back arrow. Welcome to he forum!

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Thanks for the tip, I wasn't looking to save a quick buck at all, I just followed advise from a person on HP forums.
Thank you for the welcoming greeting!

VS quality depends on how old the unit.  If it has gray side labels, it's fine.  That said, a CX is far better. 

 

All Corsair PSUs come with at least one PCIe power connector.

Can I make you a question? or do I need to make another thread

Ähm, look at the Connectors of that unit pls.

Because 250W lets me suspect a 12V Only PSU that isn't ATX compliant.

Get an RX570, those are dirt cheap right now and, if you have the money, get the 8GIB version.

If not, the 4GiB is OK.


The 3GiB 1060 is not because 4GiB is the minimum you should have right now.

But it's the VS400, so only has a grey label.

 

Why is there the VS400/500/600 and VS450/550/650? I know they are sold in different regions, but why?

Because the old VS was 230V only and still selling in Europe.

 

South East Asia and India with their poor mains voltage was having problems supporting a 230V only PSU.  When mains browned out to 180V (just for example) the PC would just shut off.  Also, South America wanted an entry level PSU from Corsair and their mains voltage could be 115V or 230V depending on what part of the country you're in.

 

The new "fuil range" version of VS was created with wattages that were "50W off" to help differentiate the existing product in EU vs. the new product (instead of saying "gray label").  Once the old VS was dried up, it was decided to make the new full range VS a world wide SKU.  But sales people and retailers in EU didn't want to change their product descriptions, product filters, etc. to the new 400, 500, 600W power levels.  So the line was "re-vamped" as 450, 550 and 650W to match the product it was replacing in the EU.

Idk at what point going from 3 to 4gb really makes a difference...

I mean I'm not looking for the GTX 1060 anymore.

I'm considering buying a RX 480 actually.

Doesn't change anything.

 

To me 240W sounds like 12V Only OEM/Business PSU that doesn't come with PCIe Connectors.

You need to check that first.

Well I can certainly tell you this, that PSU is not going to take care of a GPU like that.

Just make a picture of the connector that connects the PSU with the Board and upload it here.

I'm not really sure anymore as I've bought the new power supply and graphics card, which just arrived and the psu arrived days ago, and they are fine- except for the graphics card but that's a another top.

So, problem solved?
