    There's only one 8-pin PCIe. And that's it.

    Did you even try to plug it in?

    Yes, of course, it will not plug-in!

    There are some connectors that use a Square and a Rounded pin on the +2 connector, and there are some that use two Rounded pins on the +2.

    The Rounded pins will work in a Square pin spot but not the other way around. With the latch on the plug facing up the +2 pin should be on the left as you plug it into the card.

    Scroll to the bottom and they show just the 2 pin connected, and then both connected.

    Talking Thank You!!

    Hello fellows,

    You were right and I was wrong. The 2-pin and 6-pin are compatible with the video card 8-pin connector and the VC is working fine, so far!

    My thanks to the JG forum...you saved me again

    See you in a few years when I attempt to build my second computer

    Cordially,

    CG
