Power overhead/connector energy Problems with System expansion.

Hello my Friends,

 

I have a question. My new GPU is about to arrive in the mail in the next couple of days.

I forgot to think about my powersupply having not enough connectors.

I have an RM550X from Corsair. Since the graphics card has only 270W, I thought that the Power Supply has enough Power overhead, but sadly I forgot about the connectors.

The Power Supply has 2*8Pin, 3*6Pin, 1*24Pin

 

Here is the rest of my System:

Asus Z170-A

Skylake i7 6700K

Noctua DH-15 with 2x140mm PWM Fan

Corsair RM550X

3x A14 Noctua 140mm PWM Case Fan

1 HDD, 2 SSD

-------------> Now I want to add on the 8GB Zotac GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme+

 

I hope someone here can help me and figure out a solution. Or just give me advise if I need a new Powersupply, be it because of the connectors, or because of the power consumtion.

 

Best wishes,

 

Chris from Germany

The RM550X has the connections for any single GPU.

|PSU Tier List /80 Plus Efficiency| PSU stuff if you need it.
