hi, i have my hawk connected to one 6pin+2pin connector and one 6pin connector with reduction to 8pin. It works perfectly well.
If I may ask you - what PSU are you using? I have only 500W enermax - I think it should be suciffient, bud who knows
I have recived an answer from MSI tech support which confused me a little bit:
Thanks for contacting MSI technical support.
Regarding your concern, i think you should change other PUS, N760 HAWK need 400W.you can use this link to calculator the power supply ...msi.com/service/power-supply-calculator/
problem is, that nVidia gtx7xx-series GPUs are not included in mentioned calculator :-/ and information that N760 HAWK itself needs 400W
sounds for me a little bit overestimated...
thanks for help
