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
