Question about Power Up 450-Watt / ATX / 120mm Fan / SATA-Ready / PCI-E-Ready / 24-Pin / Power Supply (GEN-2005) Power Supply

1 Answer

Am using only the 6 pin molex to power a VGA PC express card. The Slimline Acer 1200AX desktop does not have any extra molex connectors available, also the 9600GT VGA card requires more waats than the Acer can spare. The power supply that I am planning on using is a PowerUP 450 watt ATX. Since am using this Pwr sup as an external stand alone how can I get it to turn on without plugging it in to a motherBoard for turn on feedback???

Firewire port usff 7010


If you're asking if a Dell OptiPlex 7010 USFF will support Firewire the answer is No...Unless you purchase and install a Firewire card

The OptiPlex 7010 USFF has the following external connections:
  • Front Panel: one microphone connector and one headphone connector
  • Back Panel: one line-out connector and one line-in/microphone connector
  • Network Adapter: one RJ45 connector
  • Serial: one 9-pin connector; 16550 C compatible
  • USB 3.0: Back Panel - 2
  • USB 3.0: Back Panel - 2
  • Video: 15-pin VGA connector
  • 20-pin DisplayPort connectors - 2
I don't recommend any USB to Firewire convertors but if you can find a Firewire Convertor PCI Express Card you can try installing it but remember the USFF has only one Mini PCI Express 52-pin connector, I've highlighted a possible product. It allows for Firewire 800 speeds. The included optional internal Molex power connection is only required if your Firewire device doesn't have its own power adapter

How to wire up a 650 graphic card


You're going to need;

A) 2 miles of No.00 wire.
B) SpreadNok cable clamps
C) A pair of Klines
D) 2 rolls of black plastic electrical tape

OR,

your Power Supply needs a 6-pin PCI Express power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Plug it into the Top/Back of the graphics card.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5247878&CatId=7387

(I watched the video)

Your PCI-Express x16 slot can deliver up to 75 Watts of power.

The 6-pin PCI Express power cable, can deliver up to 75 Watts of power.

Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply is needed.

Looking back at the Playtool link, and the 6-pin PCI Express power cable;

Note the 6-pin PCI Express adapter power cable, shown on the right.

THIS, is what you use if your Power Supply, does NOT have a 6-pin PCI Express power cable.

TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables plug into it.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

I say again...............TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables plug into it.

DO NOT use just one.
I don't care, if that is all the 4-pin Peripheral power cables that were left.

If you use just one 4-pin Peripheral power cable, you will;

A) Burn the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card.

B) Burn the contact pins down in the bottom of the PCI-Express x16 slot.

C) Burn the plug connector end on the 6-pin PCI Express adapter power cable.

D) Burn the contact pins on the graphics card, that the 6-pin PCI Express power cable plugs onto.

Happen right away?
Nope.

Down the road a little after you have forgotten all about it.

("Hmmm, what's that smell? Smells kinda' like burnt wiring.
Wow, my monitor screen just went blank."

News at 6:00
"Nvidia GeForce GTX650 graphics card buried today, along with a motherboard.
Owner cited for neglect, pain and suffering.
Plea bargained to do better in the future" )

Not having a 6-pin PCI Express power cable on your Power Supply, suggests it is a low quality unit, and is underpowered for that graphics card.

Want to burn up a graphics card, just under power it.

[ 4-pin Peripheral power cable;
Also misnomered as a 'Molex' power cable.

Molex was the first company to produce that design of power cable CONNECTOR.
(I don't think they designed it, just manufactured it; if memory serves)

Name stuck. Kinda' of like calling an open-end wrench a 'Crescent wrench' ]

My ATI firepro V7800 makes continuous beeping noise. PC does not boot when I turn it on.....pls help!!!


1) Believe the continuous beeping you hear is a BIOS Beep Code, stating you have a graphics problem. Computer, not video card, is beeping.

2) Do you have the external 6-pin PCI-Express power cable plugged into the graphics card, from the Power Supply?

3) IF, your Power Supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, are you using TWO 4-pin Peripheral power cables, connected to a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

To wit;

6-pin PCI-Express power cable example, and also showing a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable on the right,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

Example of a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,
(Misnomered by many as a 'Molex' power cable. Molex was the first company to make that type of connector. The name stuck, kind of like calling an adjustable open-end wrench a Crescent wrench),

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note the color code of the wires used in a 4-pin Peripheral power cable, and a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable.

Red = 5 Volt wire
Yellow = 12 Volt wire
(All are DC Voltage)
Black = Ground wire. (ALL Black wires are Ground wires)

The 4-pin Peripheral power cable has ONE Yellow 12 Volt wire.
The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable has TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.

The most power that a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot can deliver, is 75 Watts.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

"This cable is used to provide extra 12 volt power to PCI Express expansion cards. PCI Express motherboard slots can provide a maximum of 75 watts."

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress8

"The older 6 pin version officially provides a maximum of 75 watts (although unofficially it can usually provide much more)"


The ATI FirePro V7800 graphics card requires 150 Watts by itself.

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot CANNOT deliver the recommended power (Wattage) needed, therefore an external power cable capable of delivering 75 Watts is needed.

What happens if you just use ONE 4-pin Peripheral power cable, in a 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable?

The PCI-Express x16 expansion slot contact pins -> BURN

The gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the graphics card -
BURN

The connection on the graphics card for the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable - BURNS

The contact pins in the 6-pin PCI-Express adapter power cable -
BURN

If it is too bad, and cannot be remedied by cleaning, the motherboard is TOAST, and so is the graphics card.

I don't find the MSI 5459 graphics card, William.
Am familiar with the Nvidia GeForce 250 GTS, though.

Using the GeForce GTS 250 as an example, the graphics card requires a 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, for additional power, along with the power it gets from the PCI-Express x16 slot it is in.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#pciexpress

The unit is furnished with an adapter power cable, that converts 2 Molex power cables, (4-pin Peripheral power cables, actually), into 1 PCI-Express 6-pin power cable.

Note that the 6-pin PCI-Express power cable, has two Yellow wires in it.

Let's look at a 4-pin Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

Note there is one Yellow wire, one Red wire, and two Black wires.

The Red wire is a 5 Volt wire, and not used by the adapter power cable.

The two Black wires are Ground wires, and only one is used by the adapter power cable.

The Yellow wire is a 12 Volt wire, and is used by the adapter power cable.

The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable requires TWO Yellow 12 Volt wires.
(And three Black Ground wires)

This means Two 4-pin Peripheral power cables MUST be used.

Failure to use two 4-pin Peripheral power cables, to that adapter power cable, means the GeForce GS 250 is NOT receiving enough power.

This will burn the connection at the graphics card, burn the adapter power cable connector, and burn the PCI-Express x16 slot it is sitting in.

Takes time, but will happen.

Could this be what you have done?

It also requires 150 Watts all by itself. You need more power for the rest of the computer.

(The 6-pin PCI-Express power cable is designed to provide up to 75 Watts of power. This means 75 Watts of power, also comes from the PCI-Express x16 slot, it is sitting in)

Nvidia GeForce GTS 250,

The fact that your old Palit GT220 worked shows that your system components are NOT faulty.

The Palit GTX 260 requires the following
1) A PCI-Express 2.0 comliant motherboard.
2) Two 6 pin PCI-Express power connectors.
3) Minimum 450W or greater system power supply.

Lets break this down a little
1) You already have a motherboard that supports this card so no problem there.

2) I am unsure whether your power supply has two 6 pin PCI-Express power connectors, it should have one though and the GTX 460 package should have a molex to 6 pin PCI Express power adapter that you can use for the other.

3) Now it comes to the power supply itself. Currently your system has a 480W power supply. Through some calculating it seems that a system of this spec should have at least a 550W power supply. This means that your current power supply is 70W out. This may be why you get no signal, there is enough power for allthe other comonents but not enough left over for your GPU.

Before you go out and buy a new power supply just check that both 6 pin power connecters are firmly clipped in. If after that the card still doesn't power up then I suggest you purchase a Cooler Master Exteme power plus 550W or greater power supply.

What plug from the power supply on a FX541s computer do I plug into a nvida 9800gtx+ vidio card


A 9800GTX+ video card usually requires (2) 6-pin PCI-e power connectors from your PSU. The PSU that game with your computer might not have that. You can use an adapter that converts (2) 4-pin Molex to (1) 6-pin PCI-e connector. That does mean that you will need (4) 4-pin Molex power connectors.

Aspire t-180 4-pin power plug


Your aspire does not include a PCI-Express power connector... that's why you'll need to buy an adapter cable that transforms two other type of connectors (molex) available from your power supply into the one you need to feed power to your video card.

You may need a cable like this...
