LTT VARIOUS OLD PARTS LAYING AROUND.

LINUXXUNIL
 Share

Good afternoon, Everyone. I woke up this morning, and started rummaging around in my closet. Just plain bored today. I grabbed a bunch of parts and, threw this together.

I didn't really have a "Goal." in mind.........there wasn't any rhyme, or reason.

I was curious about?................. what looks like a small length of cable coming from the end my GPU plug?

I had four of these cards laying around,( Asus Turbo GEFORCE GTX 1070) and decided I would add another.

I am going to run (2) cards SLI with a bridge.

I haven't built anything, in about 7 years, and I am unfamiliar with this plug.

Blah, Blah....Blah...O.K.

Question: Do I put the 6+2 together, and plug it into the lower card (8) pin female?

Or, do I just run another cable from the PSU directly to the other card?

I don't want to damage anything?

I appreciate your time.Thanks.

You can power both cards with that cable, but it is ideal to have 2 separate cables for max power overhead.

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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Hello. I thought Corsair was (1) saving money in manufacturing cost, and (2) possibly making it modular (to a degree.) for (4) pin cards etc. or what have you.

I was 90% on running another cable, Soooo, that's what I'll do.

I appreciate your help.

it's super common practice to have split power cables like that, it's on every PSU I've ever owned. Also, no such thing as 4 pin PCIe inputs (just nitpicking)

Hello. I ran a separate cable to the other GPU.

I also just ordered (2) more sticks on RAM to populate the other (2) DIMM slots.

At this point........There isn't any need for more than 32GB.

I'm calling this 90% done.

Again, I appreciate your input. ( Pun, intended.)
