  1. So I just visited the service centre at the store where I purchased the video card. They claim to be 100% certain that the 6+2 pin end is meant for the graphics card while the 8-pin should go to the PSU. They are of the thinking that the cable provided is wrong, since it is 8-pin and expected to fit into a 6-pin slot. I think I will need to go back to the shop where I got the PSU. Is this a common type of mistake for Cooler Master?
  2. Kund, I can make the cable fit on both sides if I plug the side labelled 'PSU' into the video card and the side labelled 'PCI-E' into the PSU. I don't know if this is weird or by design. Perhaps it's so someone looking at the cable later on can tell where the other end goes??? Either way, when I plug it in like this it doesn't work. I get an error message on boot up telling me to shutdown and hook up power to the graphics card.
  3. Zucker, I'm not using the 4x4 CPU connectors. You can see some photos of the cable I'm using here: http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae351/daniel_mc1982/pcie02_zpsced69f95.jpg http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae351/daniel_mc1982/pcie03_zpse1da054a.jpg You can't see it in the photo but the 8-pin side is labelled 'PSU' on the reverse. This seems weird because this end can only go into the video card. On the PSU end, I have tried inserting only one of the 6-pin connectors (ignoring the +2) and I've also tried inserting both of the 6-pin connectors (thereby taking up two of the 6-pin pci-e slots on the PSU). Neither of these work.
  4. Ive tried rotating the cable so that the 8 pin end is plugged into the video card and the 6+2 pin end is in the PSU but it still doesn't work. I've tried this with both 6+2 plugs in the PSU and also with just one but neither configuration works. (There are actually 2 x 6+2 pins on one end). I still get an error message saying something like "Please shutdown and attach power to this graphics card".
  5. I'm at work at the moment but I'll open up the case again tonight and take some photos.
  6. Hi Guys, I just purchased a Cooler Master v850 PSU and I've been having some trouble with the PCI-E cables. The cables are quite clearly labelled 'PSU' on one end and 'PCI-E' on the other, so there's little doubt which end goes where. The problem is, the 8-pin connecter on the PSU side has a little plastic bridge between two pins preventing it from plugging in. You can see an example of what I mean here: http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8. So, I'm not sure how I can get any suplemental power to my new graphics card (EVGA GeForce GTX780) and I'm at a loss as to why this type of cable would be included with the PSU if it doesn't fit. All 4 PCI-E cables are the same. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Do I need an adapter or something? - Scalli
