After claiming warranty on my BLISS 9800GTX+ , and after approximatly a month till they accepted to give me a new one, this new Geforce 9800GTX+ came in a new box, and doesnt mention the name "BLISS" anywhere on it, it is smaller and lighter in size.

What confused me is that i cant figure out how to plug it to my Power Supply, the box says to use "1 6PIN Connector" , and the package provides one 6PIN cable, but the graphic card itself has Two available slots for 6PIN cables, now what to do ?

My power supply has couple of 6PIN Cables already by default, should I plug TWO of those 6PIN into the card, or just ONE ? Or should i simply plug 1 using the 1x6PIN cable that splits into 2 Molex, the last one is provided in the box. So what to do ? :S

Any help appreciated :)

The 2 molex to 6-pin is just for people who don't have enough 6 pin connectors by default. You don't need to use that (and shouldn't as it's nothing good).
You should connect a power connector to both of them.

Wait a sec, I'll go check it out on the gainward site, but it shouldn't get overpowered or anything, at least because you plug both connectors.... T.T*

The BLISS version has "Extreme HD-Output" whereas the "normal" version "only" has "HD-Output".
No idea what difference (if any) that makes. BLISS version's GPU clock is 7 MHz lower... That won't make a difference, but just noticed that... Don't think there's a real difference in these.

will do, just as soon as the updates finish, installed a fresh copy of Vista Ultimate, installing all updates first, Sp1 and everything after that, then im plugging it in , and installing the latest drivers from Nvidia. Hopefully, the card works this time, and wont BSOD me like last time.

Absolutly amazing, the Geforce 9800GTX+ does require 2x 6PIN Connector no matter what the retarded retail box says. It has been perfectly running so far, with latest drivers and updates installed. Thanks BG-0, your work has been very much appreciated :)
This problem is SOLVED ;)
