There should be pcie power sockets behind the gpu

 

Cables basically any that are compatible with the 4.1 or 5.1. There are plenty around on ebay/amazon.

 

I thought you first did a casemod but just in case also listed the standard stuff of the 4.1

 

 

So i have a macpro4.1 running windows and i want to get my two zotac geforce 8800 to run in it. problem is macs dont have 6 pin power cables. Any recomendation for a 500w power supply that i can have outside of my case?

 

(note: i live in europe)

Any reason for it being outside? Why not replace the internal unit. An sfx unit fits with ease. Atx with some modding too.

 

Or is this like a non modded windows mac?

 

If so the 4.1 has 2 pcie 6+2 pin headers available on thr board for pcie power and you just need the cable to use em
