1050 TI EVGA Superclocked: Does It Need 6/8 Pin?

Unkindness
 Share

Hi all,

Picked up this shorty short short GPU (04G-P4-6253-KR) and was having a look in the box and it doesn't have a 8/6 pin plug. I'm guessing it's not supposed to.

As I'm new to all of this, is this normal for the mini card? Is the extra power only needed for big 3 fan f**k off cards?

Any help to expand the mind is very welcome!

it's meant to deliver more power to the chip. I recommend you connect it, you need to have a 6+2 or 8 pin plug on your psu for that

If its not there you don't need it, simple. Smaller cards like 1030s and 1050s don't need the extra power as the PCIe slot can deliver 75watts on its own.

Yeah I took it out and couldn't see one so must be it so!
