    Hi all

    just setting up a new rig....

    looking at the cheesecake board it has 2 8pin power connectors

    i will want to used both for overclocking....

    now my PSU only has 1 8pin plug

    will a spare 8pin PCIe plug work ok?

    thanks

    No it won't fit, you can get a Molex to 8 pin CPU power adapter

    No, it has a different shape! Even though it is 8-Pin the connections are arranged as 'Squares' and 'Semi-Square-Oval' differently to prevent this exact error. CPU goes to CPU and PCI-e to PCI-e and that's that! :thumb:
