No..

 

Its for a GPU that has no PCIE POWER pin but require more than 75W..i think that kind of GPU exist though i never found one .__.

So I have been looking at getting a MSI B360 Gaming Arctic, and I realised there was a slot to plug in a 6 pin PCIe power cable on the motherboard. Would I need to plug this in if my GPU already requires a 6 pin power cable?

I’ve built 3 PCs, 1 on a B450, 1 on a X470 and one on a Z77. None of them had any kind of PCIe power hole/socket on the motherboard.

I think the EVGA GTX 1050 FTW has 120W TDP and no power connector
