K8N Diamond Plus & 6-pin PCI-E?

Post by Watterson200 » Thu Oct 03, 2019 11:38 pm

I have heard that this mobo requires an 8 pin PCI-E connector. The PCP&C 510SLI is recommended as compatible on the MSI web site. However, a review posted at NewEgg suggests that the PSU requires an adapter because it does NOT have an 8 pin connector, only a six pin. Is this true, and if it is, where do I find this adapter?

Only a 6-pin probably because it is an ANCIENT power supply
