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?

If visually everything works well on the website of an online store, but there are no sales, this does not mean that the problem is not at all in the technical part. Go through the transaction chain of user actions yourself, to make sure you can read this article
