    Hi
    I have just received my new GPU, an HIS 3870 X2 to replace my HIS 3870 Turbo for the present. I may crossfire them when I can find the cash to replace my Tagon 800Watt PSU
    My problem is the new card as a six pin and an eight pin connector from what I can gather is
    That I can use both my six pin connectors. but how can I fit a six pin in an eight pin socket in the correct holes
    Can anyone please advise me on this before I mess up again.
    Regards
    Rex(y)

    Hi win2kpro.
    Thank you for the reply. the adapter will allow me to connect the two supply leads with the power normally supplied with two 6 pin connectors, as I do not intend to overclock the gpu this is my answer.
    Thank you.
    Rex.
