1 PSU cable to power 3090

Stahlmann
 Share

Hello good people,

 

tomorrow my 3090 will arrive. I was wondering: My current GPU power cable is a single 8-pin PCIe power cable on the PSU side and it splits up to 2x 6+2-pin cables on the GPU side. The 3090 model i'll have is the Asus TUF with 2x 8-pin connectors. Can i just run this one cable or do i need to run 2 seperate 8-pin cables from my PSU? How do these pigtail-type cables work?

Current Specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X - Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B550-E - GPU: PNY RTX 3080 XLR8 Epic-X - RAM: 4x8GB (32GB) G.Skill TridentZ RGB 3600MHz CL16 - PSU: Corsair RMx (2018) 850W - Storage: 500 GB Corsair MP600 (Boot) + 2 TB Sabrent Rocket Q (Storage) - Cooling: EK, HW Labs & Alphacool custom loop - Case: Lian-Li PC O11 Dynamic - Fans: 6x Noctua NF-A12x25 chromax - AMP/DAC: FiiO K5 Pro - OS: Windows 11 preview - Monitor: ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ - Mouse: Logitech G Pro + Powerplay - Keyboard: Logitech G915 TKL - Headphones: Beyerdynamic Amiron Home - Microphone: Antlion ModMic

 

Temperatures @steady state: Furmark + CinebenchR23 running for 1 hour. Fans @850RPM. Pump @1600RPM.

NO, don't even think about it.

 

Your PSU came with 2x PCIe cables.

Not sure I'm understanding the what problem is.

You're going from card with 2x8pin to a card with 2x8pin. Why would you need two cables?

You really shouldn't try to run 300+ watts through a single 8 pin cable.  You REALLY want both. 

 

 

 

The PSU has two connectors for cables.  Find your second cable.

Pushing too much wattage through too little copper can cause overheating, melting, shorting, and then fire.

It's a bad plan.  The 3090 uses 150+ watts more than the 1080?  Or something like that.  It's NOT a small change in power draw.

That and he doesn't have enough PSU with 650W in the 1st place, but he will figure that out.

A single 8 pin is rated for 150 watts theoretically, with 2 at 300. add the PCIe slot which delivers 75 watts theoretically. The 3090 is rated for 350 watts by nvidia but can easily pull like 400 or more, as shown in some testing from the likes of Gamers Nexus.

 

So if your combined theoretical output is 375, you're short a good few watts, and you probably don't wanna go over spec on a single cable.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

are you using the RM650X from your sig?

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

So you are telling me that every single PSU manufacturer has been breaking electrical safety laws for at least the past 15 odd years?

Just leave the card in it's default state. Cause OCing with only 650w even if it's Corsair is kinda dumb in the first place.

That's not what he said.

 

PCIe spec for 8-pin PCIe is 150W each connector.  So two connectors is 300W.  If the card pulls more than 300W, it's the card that's out of spec, not the cable.  That's assuming that no power is being delivered by the slot, of course.  Which should be able to support up to 75W.

 

Theoretically, the cable can deliver more power safely, but you end up with resistance that causes the voltage to drop.  This is why using two cables is ideal.   Less voltage drop.

You can do that, it meets specification of the cables. It's just not ideal.

I know it came with the extra cables, and i still have them, just asking if i need to use them.

Had a thread about it yesterday. Most people said it should run, worst thing that could happen is a shutdown when the PSU is overloaded. I'm not planning to OC my CPU and GPU right now. If i have any issues i can still get a better PSU,

Yes. If it is too weak i'll upgrade.

Not planning to. I know my PSU is at it's limit as soon as i insert the card. I might even upgrade it only because it will probably get loud and hot. I'll see about that as soon as the 3090 is here.

 

 

 

Didn't expect so much input, thanks!

I'll get the 2nd cable and run 2 individual ones. If i have any issues i'll replace my PSU with THIS.

I'll get back to y'all and report if it works or not.

 

EDIT: I didn't expect that 2x 8-pin cables + PCIe slot power are so close to the actual TDP of the card. I hope this will not lead to any issues by itself.

Yeah i guess worst thing that could happen is that it will roast my enitre rig. Well, let's see about that...

 

Edit: Shouldn't my PSU have any protection against overloading so the worst thing will not happen? Main reason i want to keep it is because i still have 8 years of warranty, so unless i really have to replace it, i don't want to.

The RMX 850 would be the upgrade from your RMX 650

 

Or the HX 850 or HXI 850 if you wanted to go up another notch in the Corsair lineup.

Ok, the RMx 850 W is only ~30€ more expensive than the non x. I guess that's what i'll get if i'll have to upgrade.

That would be the true upgrade wattage wise and with equal quality.

 

The RM is the budget RM model....

The RM is not equal to the RMX.

RM is still good tho, isnt it like TX but fully modular?

The RM is quieter, fully modular and supports Modern Standby, but it's got no Japanese caps and it's rated at 40C, whereas the TXM is rated at 50C.

So basically, TXM if you don't really care about potential noise, otherwise RM. Or get the best of both worlds (except for Modern Standby) with the RMx.

 

Still though, it's not like there aren't any upgrade options out there other than from Corsair that are similar quality-wise to the RMx (be quiet! SP11, Fractal Design Ion+, you name it). If it doesn't work out with the RM650x OP's already got, that is.

What would be the best option for an upgrade while not completely breaking the bank? The ION+ actually looks like a great option. Noise is porobably the most important factor for me. I have absolutely no idea what the difference between all these units is, apart form build quality of course. Most of them are in the A tier, so what do i get for the more expensive ones? (I'd probably never buy that GameMax thingy tho, looks scetchy)
