ASUS Rampage III Power configuration.
Posted on 2011-09-14
1366 Extrema 3.4Ghz CPU
ASUS Rampage III Mobo
Ultra 1600W PSU
GTX 285 x 2 in SLI (SLI For Counter Strike lol)
The 120GB SSD I linked above ( On its way)
24GB DDR3 Corsair Dominator memory (maxed board out)
3TB SATA 7200RPM Samsung HDD (storage)
The mobo has 2 of the 8 pin connectors. Both of the connectors only has 4 pins exposed as each have a cover that covers 4 additional pins.
With my 1600w PSU, do i need to use BOTH of the FULL 8 pins? Can I get a way with using just the 4 exposed pins on each? OR can i just use one FULL 8 pin nd not use the other connector at all?
My PSU seems on only have 1 8pin.... but has1 4pin also.
I see there are also 2 of the molex connecotrs near the Graphics ports. I did read that those are used for multiple GPFX cards. Seems I ahve 2 GTX 285's I assume I do need to power those.
